Graphic Novels – Fall Edition : Wonder Woman, World of Warcraft and… Korra!

Hi guys!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you for your kind words in my last post, I feel much better now ๐Ÿ™‚ But still keeping myself distant from books T_T So I enjoyed myself with some light-hearted graphic novels!! It’s actually the best thing for migraines hahah because my eyes don’t have to focus too much on the words and the pictures give me what I need. wow

First, I don’t play video games. Like AT ALL. It’s just one of those things that seem to never interest me. But what I do love is a great story. And for that, I love the stories behind the video games LOL weird huh? I can’t play for shit alright. But I can spend hours and hours watching all the Blizzard Cinematic, watching the storyline unfolds and find out what’s next. Let’s be honest, video games storyline are aamazing!!

It’s no surprise that I absolutely LOVE this Chronicle ! I don’t think people would put this under graphic novel. But it’s a chronologicalย  collection of facts and stories from the universe with amazing art along the pages. Some graphic arts. With Stories. Graphic Novel. Simple.ย rating5IMG_6414

What I like the most is the diverse collection of mythologies and how it all blends in the history and universe of Warcraft. It makes you realize how this world is so vast! Everything makes so much sense LOL If you follow the stories or at least try to follow it from all the clips they provide, there are a lot of plot holes. This offers a great spectrum of all the events and when did it occur.

This RIGHT HERE IS SUCH A SEXY BEAST. This is the graphic novel beside my iPhone 6 +, can you see how huge it is in real life? SO HEAVY too!ย  Can you imagine me bringing this graphic novel around?

I JUSTย  LOVED AND LOVEDย  THE ART!ย  Reminds me of Locke&Key hehe.

The Absolute Wonder Woman offers a whole new storyline while having some redundant plots (the only reason I removed .2 score from my rating). The Greek Mythos are refreshing and the author’s take on them reminds me a lot of Neil Gaiman’s take on Norse Mythology.

I have to warn there some mature scenes and the it is quite gruesome and violent. I wouldn’t recommend it to buy it for your kids haha.

If I have one guilty pleasure is THIS FRKN CARTOON HAHA I love Korra, I think even more than The Last Airbender! I was so excited to read this spin off. The story starts right where the tv series end, Korra and Asami go on vacation to the spirit land.

One of the things I admire about Korra and The Last Airbender in general, is the portrait THE VILLAINS. They are so good because they are human. They make the same mistakes as us and their decisions are the ones I can see myself making. The villain we are introduced in this one looks very very innocent at first and then BAM. The ending reveals us that nothing looks like it seemed ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You like Korra more than Airbender??!! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Blasphemy! Lol! Lol! It took me a while to warm to the Korra tv show, but I loved the last couple episodes.
    I don’t have much experience with videogames, but I’ve always been curious about the story in them. I’ll have to see if I can find a book like that World of Warcraft one for Assassin’s Creed.

    I’m glad to read you are feeling a little bit better. You are so right about reading some graphic novels when you are not feeling well. It’s what I always do as well.
    I used to be a very active gamer (like play about 5-6 hours every day, and even more in the weekends), but I have now stopped gaming for about five years. I still love some of the stories though; but Warcraft is one of the few popular gaming worlds I now very little of. This book sounds amazing though.
    But the thing that caught me eye the most in this one was the Wonderwoman tome ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That book looks seriously amazing. I’m definitely going to have to try and find and buy that one. I need that in my life lol ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Terrific post! Thanks for sharing these ๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. YES TO YOUR WHOLE VIDE GAME RANT. it’s not even a rant BUT STILL. I cannot get into video games to save my life (i have 0 motivation and -1 patience and also I like saving money for books kthx) BUT I GET SO INVOLVED IN THE STORY. Undertale? Never played it but I can tell you my fave characters and their whole backstories and my headcanons. Overwatch? Watched all the videos and now I plan to read the comics. I JUST LOVEEE A GOOD STORY no matter how it’s told.
    2. I LOVE ATLA! I am at season 2 currently but it’s suuuuch a good showww. I plan on watching Korra next everybody seems to love them so much.

    I have not bought any, or read many graphic novels, but I won a couple in a blogger contest last year. I received copies of ‘Rat Queens’ Volumes 1 & 2. Yikes! Comics have gotten pretty mature since I was a kid. It’s a good thing I’m a grown up, now, because I really enjoyed them. Thanks, Anne from Inked Brownies!
    Happy comicing/graphic noveling, Trang!

    Okay, so I play WoW for years and may have even been a raid leader (yeah, my inner nerd is showing ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). The lore is incredible! I have read through so much of it and continue to do so long after having to stop playing due to my illness. It is seriously good stuff. I really recommend all of the books.
