Inspired by Primitive Entertainment — I decided to start a reading list of my own. It seems like I’m going through a graphic novel/comic book binge. Don’t worry I read picture-less books, too!

Cat Person by Seo Kim. I grabbed this comic book because the illustrations remind me of an old classmate’s work… also cats. It’s pretty much a bunch of tumblr comics compiled into a book. Very cutesy. Very catty. Normally not my kind of read, but it had one comic that made me laugh a lot.

Dolltopia by Abby Denson. Found it in Teen Graphic Novels section of the library with my younger sis. Its got a great foundation for discussing ideas of self-identity in relation to society, conformity, gender and able-ism. It’s super pink but I like the images and the idea behind the story. PINK IS A GREAT COLOR! I TAKE BACK MY OLD HATRED OF THIS HUE.

Good-bye Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson. Read one of his books last year for school, so I picked this up out of curiosity+Chunky Rice. EW! Anyways, this book was depressing in a Death Cab for Cutie kind-of way that made me finish the book with “wow that was vague, pointless yet still really sad” thoughts.

The Walking Dead: Book 1.
Kirkman·Moore·Adlard·Rathburn. My boyfriend is reading this for University (no joke!) and I read the whole book as he was studying for something else. Pretty wicked– LOVED the gory bits. I haven’t seen much of the series, but I have seen the first episode… pretty much like watching a re-run. I’m thinking of reading all the comics before I catch up with the series. TV never really does it for my anyways.

the Cartoon Introduction to CLIMATE CHANGE by Grady Klein and Yoram Bauman, Ph.D.
This is a new favorite! I learned so much about science, what’s ACTUALLY going on in the world and ways to help fix it. This comic book is really funny –kinda nerdy but full of valuable knowledge. If anybody wants to learn more about Climate Change or Global Warming read this book! I’m getting all my friends/family to read it. Its THAT necessary.

CAT EYED BOY: BOOK 2 by Kazu0 Umezu
This man is a genius. He makes the best horror mangas I have ever seen. I get so into it I actually fear for the characters’ lives and once I freaked out when a plot twist happened. I actually had to put the book down and calm down because it was so fantastic. (Check out Tsunami Summoners in CEB: Book 1) The only sad thing about this book is that I finished it too fast. I thought it was a trilogy and expected it to be as long and crazy as the first book, but it was actually very short and sweet. I really wish I had taken more time with it. I didn’t want it to end! I got a new stack of Umezu’s mangas for next month. He is my new obsession.
