    You need to have read the first Bendis NA omni as there's a lot of character stuff (Civil War) that's reflected in SI.

    Pfff. I'll skip that. It's becoming too much.

    Picked up OOP War of Kings Omni for way too much on Ebay. Since Marvel seems to announce new reprints weekly I am racing to get that read and re-sell before it loses value from a reprint. Finished Annihilation Conquest Omni, halfway through Road to War of Kings Omni and then will hit War of Kings Omni.

    uhh, I didn't realize but I've read a few books lately:

    Nothing can possibly go wrong: lighthearted teen comedy about the robotics team and the cheerleaders having to team up. Some life issues play in as well. A fun romp, really enjoyed it. Faith Erin Hicks' art is very nice.

    All Summer long: coming of age story that takes place during a summer. There is a sequel out and a 3rd volume coming and I believe the main character will form an all girls rock band, so looking forward to it. Art was a bit raw but I got used to it.

    Seance Tea Party: Pre teen girl who is afraid to grow up meets a ghost girl. It took me a bit to get into it but it's a good middle grade GN, colourfull, storybook like art and a lovely, emotional ending.

    The carpet merchant of Konstantiniyya vol1: a very chunky hardcover (originally a webcomic) from the same author as Seance Tea Party (Reimina Yee) about a carpet merchant who eventually gets turned into a vampire.
    The vampire part is only the last third of the book, it's mostly about the main character's life and how he met his wife. I wouldn't say it blew me away but I can tell it's a story crafted with great care and I will definitely check out the next volume.

    The okay witch: 13 year old girl discovers that she comes from a line of witches but her mom stopped practicing magic. They also live in a town built on the history of witch hunts. A fun middle grade story, good cartoony art and interesting ideas. It is a kids' book but I still had a lot of fun with it and even tho the execution sometimes wasn't my cuppa (not the art, just the way things unfolded) I would definitely recommend this to younger readers.

    Grimoire noir: small town missing person mystery (the main character's sister went missing), but every woman in town is a witch.
    Very interesting set up, the art looks lovely and if they ever do a sequel I'm absolutely interested. However, the main character, his design, his family were just...so boring! The main kid is this default white kid doing a Humphrey Bogart cosplay, his dad is the square jawed sheriff of the town, mom just cries all the time (although that's a major, and pretty fun plot point). All the other characters are so much more interesting, both personality wise and visually, and we have to stick with this plain dough kid called Bucky...ugh.
    Maybe if they changed his design up a bit, make him look more like a normal kid (I get it, the book is called a noir, he is wearing a trench coat, but you can still do noir without that).
    Still, I really enjoyed it and would recommend it to people. The hc looks lovely and it's going for cheap right now and no one is talking about this book...like ever.

    Heartstopper v1-3
    : Two high school boys falling in love. One is out gay the other is still figuring it out. It was a webcomic originally, the art is kinda sketchy but it works. It's fluff but as it goes on it gets into more serious topics.
    Very cute and an engaging read, gonna get vol4 very soon.

    SFSX v1: Dystopian society that's all about purity, where underground sex workers are the resistance. Super R rater NSFW but a fun story about the importance of being able to live your life, with your weird kinks included. I'm curious where vol2 will go.

    Yeah I would've guessed it's perfect for a 13-16 year old (wish I had GNs like this when I was that age).

    It is. I read Dutch comics at that age. And translated Marvel and DC.

    I've heard good things about Amulet but the art just doesn't appeal to me. It might be good tho and I can get used to the look (it's not horrible, I just don't like it) but I got a bunch of other stuff I want to get that has art I actually like.

    I'm a huge fan of Amulet. Can't wait for the last volume.

    Have y'all read Cleopatra in Space, Wolfwalkers, Lightfall, or Space Boy?
