That was very quick and I need the next one five minutes ago. This continues to be wondefully horrifying.

I may have almost cried at the end of this. I cannot imagine the death of a child and then sharing it like this.

Powerful amd painful story about one family's experience with the residential school system. This is a national shame and it is our duty to engage with it and ensure that it never happens again.

Paul Dini was severely beaten while he was working on Batman and that took its toll and brought up some other ongoing issues. Paul faces these effects through different Batman characters. Brilliant artwork and an awesome, redemptive story.

The mystery of history indeed! A back story for Rosie and the Bear Woman, Jen off on her own, and more strange creatures. Never change, Lumberjanes

This is fabulous. I hadn't heard of a lot of these women and that is a crime. There are tons of diverse women in history who did so many cool things who were either kept out of history or had their role lessened. There are tons of resources here too for further education.

I love this series to death and, as expected, volume six does not disappoint. Fun, hilarity, tragedy, diversity, and the unexpected.

DC has been having a time trying to get Constantine back into circulation and I think they may have something here. He's as unlikable as he is in the original comics, the art reminds me a lot of those old comics, and certain aspects of his character are back! Sure his swears are censored but hey, he's swearing lots!

'Tis the season for horrifying vampire like creepy men who take kids away to Christmasland and it is not a fun time at all. Could be a bit shorter but still a great ride.

Some of these stories I know very well, others not so much, some from only one perspective. This was fantastic and essential reading if you're a fan of Star Trek.

I was 11 when Columbine happened. I learned more about it when Bowling for Columbine came out while I myself was in high school. This book is devaststing and heart wrenching and at the same time has the potential to be so helpful to so many people. I hope that anyone who may still blame her can see that. Sue Klebold is perfectly balanced and is so, so brave.

I'm sad it's over but glad that there seems to be room for more!

Picks up right where we left our six outlaws and doesn't let up from that moment on. Hilarious, thrilling, heart wrenching, and overall awesome. Ends like it's the end but there's certainly room for more. I hope that's the plan.

I had to keep reminding myself that this was fiction. Great novel that reads very much like a true crime book.

This was awesome. Relatable in more ways than you may expect. Growing up as a child actor doesn't exclude your from puberty, anxiety, restlessness, or anything else that comes along with growing into adulthood.

This was actually my first Clive Barker and I loved it. Still enjoyed it on this second go around. Barker's imagination is stellar and I love how real and human everyone is in spite of everything.

I'm still really enjoying Hogarth's reimaginings of Shakespeare and this one is just as interesting. Atwood doing the Tempest but done with prisoners. Never saw that coming!

Movie and book are both favs of mine. There's just something about Hannibal Lecter, Clarice Starling, Jack Crawford, Buffalo Bill, and all of them. Horrifying and fascinating no matter how many times I revisit
