The December meeting takes place at Double Midnight Comics in Manchester on Thursday December 11 at 6:30.

We’ve decided to try reading a happy book this month, so we’re reading Over the Garden Wall. Two brothers, Wirt and Greg, find themselves lost in the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. Seriously, this one looks super cute.

Review: Wytches #1

1444_wytches_1_splash

Wytches is a new series by Scott Snyder, known for writing American Vampire and Batman. This series takes a new twisty, turny creepy look at witch lore. 

Things we liked

  • NH! The family has moved to NH. We’re in NH. Therefore, we like.
  • Concept
  • Scott Snyder’s letter in the back pages

Things we didn’t like

  • Choppy flashbacks

Random things that caught our attention (for better or worse)

  • Even in NH, deer don’t just wander into your house. Although one League lady does know someone who kept a deer for a pet.

For the most part, the group liked issue one and are looking forward to issue 2. Some concern over the story becoming girl-needs-to-save-dad-from-creepy-other-world theme resulted in a bet to see how it turns by issue 4.

Review: The Wicked and The Divine #1

tumblr_n7dna8VHTb1qzquzno1_500The Wicked and the Divine is a new series by Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie, the creators of Phonogram. It’s a tale of gods incarnate liking a rockstar, pop culture filled life by only for 2 years. 

Things we liked

  • the art
  • the wide variety of gods
  • mythology

Things we didn’t like

  • how all the covers and variant covers make it hard to figure out which issue # it is
  • the righteous female journalist; not really sure she’s needed

Random things that caught our attention (for better or worse)

  • the back cover sometimes seemed more interesting than the front cover

Overall, we really liked it. We were able to chat more about god origins as one League lady has super knowledge. We also discussed it feels a little like Neil Gaiman’s American Gods novel.
