So this was a good comic week but I wasn’t really too interested in the books I read this week which wasn’t such a great feeling. But I have picked up some really cool comics from the library so I’m more excited next week.

So the only one I enjoyed this week was East of West. Its such an abstract story but I am enjoying it. I would still tell people to pick up this story.
So I remember reading The Great Pacific a few years ago and thought I would pick it up to give it a try and it was just not interesting. I appreciate when stories go for some original idea but there was just very little plot in this one to keep it interesting.
I have heard so many things around Deadly Class and I’ve got to say that I was really disappointed in it. I just didn’t enjoy the story or the art style and I read a lot of books and comics so I know that I can’t expect everything to be a winner but I was sad after hearing so much about these.
What’s some of your favourite comics/graphic novels.
So that’s all folks!
