The Top 5 Graphic Novels You Should Check Out

Hello everyone and welcome to a Top 5 list of Graphic Novels that you should check out that are NOT superheroes nor are from Marvel or DC Comics.

There is also a really good review of Kevin Keller’s mini series, which is part of the collected work that I reviewed, done by my good buddy Dennis Upkins that you can check out here and here.

In looking at the list, you’ll notice a few things about it:

1. No books on the list have a straight, white, cisgender, and able bodied male as the lead.

2. Women and women of colour are the leads in 4 of the 5 books.

3. There is LGBTQ representation in 3 of the 5 books.

Yes, I collect some Marvel and DC Comics, but those comics are few and far between, and more often than not they’re not the new comics coming out today. If the Big Two are not willing to change for the better and faster, then people WILL go elsewhere for comics, and they’ll find better alternatives that reflect who they are.

Brain Food – Episode 34

Hello everyone and welcome to the latest episode of Brain Food, wherein I discuss the latest series from Marvel written by G Willow Wilson, Ms Marvel!

And wouldn’t you know it? It’s a top seller at Comixology, actually beating out one Batman title as of the time of the release of its 4th issue!

Not bad for a new legacy character.

Brain Food – Episode 27!

Wow, it’s been a good while, hasn’t it? But here it finally is, episode 28 of Brain Food, wherein I review Daniel H Wilson’s book, Robopocolypse!

A special thank you goes out to Sparkindarkness for his contribution to this video, and I highly encourage you all to go and read his reviews over at Fangs For The Fantasy.

And especially check out his article on What Will You Do In A Dystopian?

[On a side note, please ignore the number at the start... this is episode 27, not 28... I just got a touch mixed up there. >_>]
