Review: The Temptation of King Midas (Alcyon #2) – Richard Marazano and Christophe Ferreira (Illustrator)

The digest: building on everything that made the first volume so enjoyable, I cannot recommend this comic book highly enough to anyone with an interest in Greek myths and retellings. If you have read my review for Alcyon #1, you already know pretty much everything I'm going to say here.

Review: The Only Living Girl #1: The Island at the Edge of Infinity – David Gallaher & Steve Ellis (illustrations)

The digest: Enjoyable artwork and cool character design, but probably only worth a look if you've read the previous series (The Only Living Boy).

Review: Straight Outta Fangton – C.T. Phipps

The digest: A highly entertaining paranormal urban fantasy showing the less glamorous side of vampiric life. This is not a serious tome focusing solely on vampirism and all it entails - though you will find gruesome and gritty elements here in heaps. It's a pop-culture referencing, smoothly written, funny, easily digestible, and highly recommended break away from both the overly-serious Dracula tales and the flowery Twilight books.

Review: Women & Power: A Manifesto – Mary Beard

The digest: an essay about the relationship between women and power in the 21st Century in the broadest of terms. This accessible volume serves as a good introduction to what more needs to be done in tackling the issues revolving around women, the patriarchy, and our relationship with power. Supported by Classical and contemporary examples, any modern-minded person will surely find something thought-provoking here.
