Sherlock Holmes Exhibit FI

The International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes at TWOSE

I took a trip to Edmonton over the Victoria Day long weekend and had a chance to stop by the Telus World of Science to check out the International Exhibition of Sherlock Holmes. I’ve been a big fan of all things Sherlock since I can remember – I read the books in elementary school, and I’ve loved basically every incarnation of Sherlock on TV and in the Movies that exists, so to say that I was excited about this exhibit is an understatement.

May Comic Swap

May Comic Swap

One of the best things to come out of starting this blog last year was definitely finding the geek girls x bloggers group. I say this all the time, these ladies are AMAZING and there’s something really special about finding such a supportive group of like-minded bloggers. Okay, okay, you get it…I love that group, I’ll stop gushing now. Since many of the ladies in the group love comics as much as I do, I decided to host a comic swap in May and now it’s time for us all to share what we got! Continue reading “May Comic Swap”

5 Artists on Twitter

Ruler of Books Tag

Ruler of Books Tag

I’m a bit of an overachiever. I go through phases, especially with writing (and reading, actually) where I’ll have no motivation to write, no ideas, nothing but then out of nowhere I’ll come up with a whole bunch of ideas all at once and I decide to start working on every single one at the same time. That’s the issue I’m dealing with right now, I have about 10 posts in the draft stages, but all of them require A LOT of work and they’ve taken a lot longer to finish than I expected (did I mention I’m a bad judge of time – how long it will take me to get somewhere, or finish something).

I recently watched Ariel Bissett’s (a fellow UofG Alumni and awesome booktuber) new video where she created a book tag – the Ruler of Books tag and thought it would be a lot of fun to do in the meantime since I hate not getting a post up. Check out the tag below: Continue reading “Ruler of Books Tag”

Comics for Newbies: Terminology

Recently I’ve had people ask me to clarify or define terms that I’ve used in reference to comics. I hadn’t realized until then that there’s a lot of comics terminology that gets thrown around (on this blog and elsewhere) and if you’re new to reading comics….you may not know what the heck we’re even talking about when we talk about trades vs. single issues, one-shots, or pull lists!

Don’t fret, I’m going to help you with just that! Here are some common comics related terms and phrases you may come across:
