We started this blog 2 years and a half ago as a couple yes. But life happens and we broke up, we remain friends still and we decided to keep this blog going through friendship. You can read a more detailed update on it here. So yes, you might find some very old posts with our pictures together but it’s all in the past now.  We hope our followers can also move on and still enjoy our content 🙂

    Hi Lashaan, I’ve read all of your comics reviews and I’d love to start reading some. Can you please do a Guide post to where to start (like graphic novels, comics wise, explaining what is pull list, what is TPB?) Especially for Batman collection your reviews for those comics are amazing (sorry for my lack of commenting but I was too lazy >.<). Also, I'm more than confused by the DC comics universe. Thank you !! A desperate reader and follower

      Hey there, hopefully you receive notifications when I reply to your comments! I’ve heard this request quite often from some followers (especially the ones that don’t have a WordPress blog) and I’ve been always meaning to do a guide or a series to help out some buddies to better understand the universe. I plan on doing one that will answer some of the basic questions (including the ones you’ve mentioned) by the end of February. Hopefully it’ll turn out useful and invite more people to jump into the comic world ! 😀 Thanks for taking the time to write up your request. Really happy to hear you’ve read all my comic reviews too! ❤ See you around on my future comic reviews!

    Oh my god, you guys seem like such an adorable couple (gush, much?) Gaah and I absolutely love the format of how you did this presentation! Trang – it’s soo interesting that you are studying/interning in Psychology and following your other passion as a hobby. I’m currently taking my gap year (between high school and college) and I’m highly considering majoring in Psychology, though I don’t want to let my passion for books and blogging go away. It’s great to see that you manage both with such passion 🙂

    1. I am quite glad to hear that! Feel free to check out my past reviews of DC Comics stories (well.. mostly Batman-related stories). I got my hands on the first part of The Button crossover event. I’m really excited for the rest of it (part 2 to 4) to come out. Thanks again for dropping by. Really appreciate it. 😉

        1. Wow. That is impressive and such an honor. Thanks a lot for your interest. Hard to come by DC Comics fans that are interested enough to check out reviews and what not!
