Playing Catch Up

Why hello there, long time, no see!  It has been quite awhile since I updated – over three months actually – eek!

My husband and I are expecting a baby boy in May so as you can imagine, our world is in the process of being turned upside down.  We’ve decided on a Harry Potter nursery, is anyone actually surprised??

Our baby announcement!

We’ve gotten some of the major furniture items, done the baby registry, my friends are planning my NC baby shower and my next item of business is researching daycare for after I go back to work. The whole things still seems surreal!

Harry Potter flying key mobile

My best friend from college was in Atlanta for a conference so we went a bit baby crazy.  We made this gorgeous Harry Potter mobile using this YouTube video as a reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wyvv5eVOLao.  I am absolutely in love with it!

Amidst all the baby preparations, I did keep up with my reading.  Yes it is February but I would still like to share a few of my favorites from 2015:

Favorite Comics – The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Nimona, Locke and Key, Rat Queens, Trillium, Descender, Wytches, Saga, Ms. Marvel

Favorite Books – Carry On, The Revenge Playbook, An Ember in the Ashes, Speak, I’ll Give You the Sun, Rose Under Fire, Legend

Favorite TV Shows – Orphan Black, Supergirl

Favorite Movies – Star Wars, Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two.

I hope you all have been doing well these path few months, reading some great books, and nerding out with some wonderful fandoms!

 

Bookshelf Thursday – Comic Book Cubby

The past year I have dived into the world of comic books and fallen in love.  This is my current storage method – I’m not sure the best method of storage but this has worked out better the more comics I acquired.  So that’s a sign to buy more comics?? 

 

Here’s the line-up: Ms. Marvel, Thor, Lumberjanes, Locke and Key, Saga, Nimona, Seconds, Courtney Crumrin, Descender, Star Wars, Outcast, Darth Vadar, Trillium, Giant Days, A-Force, Buffy, Orphan Black, Southern Cross, Wytches, Rat Queens, and Sex Criminals. Whew! (Or at least whew by my standards!)

What are your favorite comics? And what is your comic book storage methodology?

Sunday (Tuesday) Comics

While I made sure to go to Criminal Records this past holiday weekend, I clearly did not make posting about it a high priority.  I beg for your forgiveness!  See my humble offering:

IMG_4698Wytches #6 – You will not believe who pledged Sailor to the wytches in the chilling conclusion to the first story arc.

A-Force #1 – Yay it’s here!!  Even though I was a little lost (this post from Panels helped a lot!), I thoroughly enjoyed so many bad-ass ladies in one comic book!

Lumberjanes #14 – A new story arc starts up as Jen is attacked and kidnapped in a freak summer snow storm!  Of course the ‘Janes refuse to sit by and they set out to rescue their beloved camp counselor themselves!

In related news, I read and LOVED Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, featured on last week’s Sunday Comics.  It was incredible – funny, serious, adorable, sad, ALL THE FEELS!  This week’s Oh, Comics! podcast from Panels is all about Nimona – check it out here!
