This graphic novel collects Bombshells #1 – 6. 200 pages Publisher: DC Comics Language: English ISBN-10: 1401261329 My rating for Bombshells, Vol. 1: Enlisted – 4 Buy Bombshells, Vol. 1: Enlisted from Amazon.com* More Books by Marguerite Bennett* Thoughts: This book seemed right up my alley, a reimagined adventure taking place in the World War II era. Right in the beginning I loved what the creators did with the characters. The graphic novel Bombshells, Vol. 1: Enlisted by Marguerite Bennett (illustrated by Marguerite Sauvage, Ming Doyle, Laura Braga, Maria Laura Sanapo, Marc Deering, Stephen Mooney, Ted Naifeh, Garry Brown, Mirka Andolfo, Bilquis Evely, and Sandy Jarrell) started off great, but fell off soon after. The story is fine, but I don’t understand why Ms. Bennett needed monsters when the Bombshells are fighting Nazis, the most atrocious monsters off all (and many villains in comics were modeled on). I thought the…

Book Review: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
3 Stars , Fantasy , Fiction , Latest Posts / January 9, 2019

About: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman is a retelling of the stories which captivated many over centuries. Mr. Gaiman is a prolific author – and one of my personal favorites. 304 pages Publisher: W. W. Norton & Company Language: English ISBN-10: 039360909X   My rating for Norse Mythology– 3 Buy Norse Mythology from Amazon.com* More Books by Neil Gaiman* Thoughts: I was very excited to read another Neil Gaiman work. I have enjoyed several of his books and graphic novels. His imagination knows no bounds, and his storytelling is masterful. I knew very little about these stories before opening the book, and was looking forward to learn more. Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman does not disappoint, as the author tells wonderful stories in an easy to read, relatable manner. I speculate that Mr. Gaiman tried to make these stories a bit more interesting than they actually are, while staying away from “comic book” lore, or to make them too pop-culture like. The gods in these stories sure do talk a lot, they are good natured but treats being a wise-ass as a good thing. I did expect this book to have a bit more adult oriented material, especially from the…
