Another challenge on the list accomplished for the year: a graphicnovel

I’ve been a fan of the X-Men movies, but had never really kept up with the stories taking place through the comic books over the decades. The powerful telepath, Jean Grey, has long been my favorite member of the X-Men, and the story of her transformation into Phoenix was devastating. When I discovered that X-Men issues 129-137 covered this story arc and had been compiled into a single graphic novel I was excited!

In 2006 Marvel released the movie The Last Stand which depicted the rise and fall of Phoenix. The comics, which ran from January through September of 1980, explored these same events but followed quite a different series of events. The movie was very emotional, depicting a heartbroken Wolverine being the last one able to stop Phoenix, a resurrected Jean Grey, from destroying the world. In the…

Cleopatra in SPACE- Book Review

Originally posted on Skipping through the stacks..:

Once upon a time there was a YA librarian who freaked out over a box of Scholastic galleys and stole a few before her supervisor could finish unpacking them. She then promptly ran over to the nearest chair and began pouring over the awesome, soon to be published titles with selfish glee. This may or may not have happened last week.

Tuesday’s #WritingMusic – Craig Armstrong: Finding Beauty

This is a song I usually put on repeat and find myself listening to it over and over while working on a project. It’s the song that was playing on a loop in my head while writing the first Pistol Wrists story years ago (wow that was a while back).

What do you think? Share some of your favorite song for writing or reading in the comments!

The Adventures of Hank and Rupert #1 (#HankSaga Story #60) By @Deeliopunk / @HankSaga

“Hank, where are you going?”

“I’m not sure, Dan. Just feel like I need to adventure somewhere. No time to talk though, Rupert is outside waiting. Tell everyone I said hello.”

“Don’t you mean goodbye?”

“Yeah that too I guess. Well…hello.”

“Uhhh…hello, Hank.”

Hank walks out the doors of Blue Spaghetti’s Nook Home and climbs aboard his giant red dragon friend named Rupert. Together they take off into the sky and shoot to the star, but not like into space or anything, there isn’t air up there and they would probably turn to ice or blow up or whatever happens in space. They just shot out into the sky and left the world they came to love behind – in search for adventure.
