I love to stick to things that I know I love, things that tend to scratch the itch within me, but sometimes you just want to see what the world has in store for you. Most of the time, the things that draw me in are quite grim and gory. But when I feel like I want to mix things up, I check out the other end of the spectrum. You should try it out too. To explore different genres, to discover different characters, to experience different lives. So here I am. Offering you guys a dish with a varied array of light, fluffy, and fun stories. With some offering heart-warming messages, you never know what you can get!
This feature published at an undetermined frequency (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, who knows) will present a couple of mini reviews on anything that isn’t a physical book that I own (ebooks, comic books, TV series or movies).
Anything presented in this feature doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t get a full-review treatment in the future. That will entirely depend on how much I loved it, how interested you are in hearing more on it, and how much I have to still say about it! 🤣
Sheets by Brenna Thummler.
What is it about? Marjorie Glatt loses her sense of purpose from losing her mother, Wendell loses his footing from losing himself. Their lives intersect unexpectedly as they learn to make the most of each other’s weaknesses to be able to live happily ever after.
This was a sweet and lovely story that often felt too long for its own good. It also has colourful and cute drawings to accompany the story but nothing truly extraordinary. It’s tough to really grasp any ulterior message behind this adventure but it remains a fresh story with average artwork to make it all work in the end.
Happily Ever After & Everything In Between by Debbie Tung.
What is it about? A cute and relatable cartoon featuring a newly-wed couple and their time together. Lots of teas, comfy clothing, hugs, and realizations that the presence of the significant other simply makes our own life much, much better.
Adulthood Is a Myth by Sarah Andersen.
What is it about? A fun collection of myth vs. reality cartoons tackling everything and anything that we might have thought at one point or another in our lives. I had a harder time relating to a lot of these but I can see the appeal in Sarah Andersen’s work.
Cat’s Cafe: A Comics Collection by Matt Tarpley.
What is it about? A sweet, delightful, heart-warming collection of the beloved webcomics introducing everyone to a warm and fuzzy cast of animals dealing with life in a variety of ways. Some of these are stunningly powerful, while others are just funny. I especially dug the kiwi rhymes and the whale’s perception of the world in particular. You’ll have to pick this up to find out what those were about!
Kodi by Jared Cullum.
What is it about? An absolutely exquisite and adorable watercolour story exploring the power of friendship and love through hardship and support.
