DACBW 15 Summer

I finished my finals and now just have a 30 page script for Wish to finish. It’s time to start getting into that summer mind set and I’ll let you all know what my plans are. I’ll make blog updates month to month on my situation since a lot is bound to fluctuate but it will be fun to share what I think will be my path and see how it goes. Also happy Free Comic Book day, go find a local comic shop and go get some free comics. 

This is going to be my first summer moved out of my dad’s home. I will be going back for two weeks starting next Thursday. I might break my writing and reading rule for the 5 hour drive and everything I have to do to go back. When i’m there i’ll be a lot more limited for sure with only my crappy laptop and whatever things I chose to take with me. Still I intend to bring along a bunch of comics with me that I haven’t read yet. I’ll also catch up on any webcomic I don’t catch up with before then and maybe I’ll even try the month of free Marvel Unlimited they keep emailing me about. It’s still annoying to not have my weekly comics, not be with my girlfriend, not have a lot of my things but I’ll make due as I did in the winter. 

After that trip I hope to start working a job to pay off all my debt so I can then get more debt and keep going to college (Hail America).  If i’m not working and even if I am I still intend to catch up on gaming trying to beat a nice selection of games I haven’t yet (Plus the new ones I may get). I’ll have me and my girlfriend’s 7th year anniversary to celebrate in late may (I’ll write about this more in the future I’m sure). My brother also graduates High School in June so that is exciting as going to horrible, sucky, college can be. I’ll be trying to experiment on if I have the free time too and I might be doubling for the summer the amount of content I put out. That or just really committing more time to Wish and maybe other side projects in an attempt to make something make me money. 

Before I get into the review section since it’s free comic book day I wanted to point out that I did make a post about it here if you want to see my personal picks. Local comic book stores also generally love when people who do free comic book day also buy a comic or two. It helps them out and it’s kind of what the day is really about. Free comic book day is really, please read comics day. So I guess if your reading this for some reason but don’t read comics, do that. If you want help finding comics to start with it would be my pleasure to find stuff I think will suit your taste. 

(From Gyno-Star)
It’s not summer yet and my not summer reading this week includes. Gyno-Star homemaker arc, Ava’s demon chapter 2-13, Rock and Riot to current page, Silk 3, and Jem and Holograms 2. Today I’ll be reading All New All Different Avengers so expect some more thoughts on that next week. This week was nice and Web Comic focused so make sure to check out these amazing webcomics as well. 

Gyno-Star feels a lot like how I want wish to feel like, Gyno Star even has the same color scheme as Wish. I am going for a full comic feel but the 4 panel format of this comic works so perfectly for it. Every 4 panels you get a good joke but it also works as a full story arc. I’m super impressed and this arc was a ton of fun too with lots of great ways to bring up feminist issues. Ava’s demon is so dark yet so filled with I’ll call it wonder. Like so much as gone wrong for Ava but this world is amazing and it’s hard to deny how well everything seems to flow into each other. I have a feeling when I catch up I’ll hate the one panel uploads but for now it works rather well.  Rock and Riot just started but we got some cute relationship building at the start and some subversion of typical roles so I love that. I can’t really totally review it but I’ll be reading it’s updates as they come out.  For the comics I paid for Silk and Jem both have stunning art and solid writing. Silk delvers on solid action while building what kind of hero Cindy will be. Jem does a great job setting up the Misfits, giving us a couple of romances that go wrong and setting the stage for future issues. I wasn’t a fan of the Jem cartoon but this comic may convert me.
