I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Sarah valiantly struggles with waking up in the morning, being productive, and dealing with social situations. Sarah's Scribbles is the comic strip that follows her life, finding humor in living as an adulting introvert that is at times weird, awkward, and embarrassing.
I’m always excited to read a Sarah’s Scribbles comic. I follow her on Facebook so seeing her comics always brightens my day. To get them in book form is always good, but they are way to short. I read it all in one setting, like the last one, but the laughs are never absent. If I can say one thing about Herding Cats is it’s just so relatable.
These are real people problems and it gets us to laugh at ourselves and just realize that we’re not the only ones that go through the certain trials of life. That’s what makes it so funny.
I’m glad for this comic and look forward to more from this author.
Wonder Woman Vol. 1: The Lies
Heroic. Iconic. Unstoppable. Armed with her Lasso of Truth and imbued with the power of the gods themselves, Princess Diana of Themyscira-known to the world as Wonder Woman-is one of the greatest superheroes in history.
But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle.
To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home. To get there, she must team up with her greatest enemy, the feral beast-woman, Cheetah. Will this unlikely alliance shine the light of truth on Diana’s darkest secrets, or bury them-and her-forever?
This was my first foray into the DC Comics realm. Actually, that might be a misleading statement. I’m not a complete stranger to the characters, but to the actual world of the comics, it’s a totally new experience for me. There are so many versions and time lines that it does get a little confusing.
Wonder Woman is a well known character and I had a little knowledge about her world, but Greg Rucka’s involvement in the DC Rebirth series, Vol. 1: The Lies is a different variation. Wonder Woman is experiencing some confusion to her own history and discovers that some things are lies. It is alluded and kind of hinted at, in a sort of tongue and cheek way, that she is starting to get affected by all of the variations in her timeline that are being written about her. She can’t find her way back to Themyscira, her homeland with fellow Amazons.
It was an interesting story and the artwork was pretty. Even though at times I did notice some inconsistencies.
