You Brought Me the Ocean – Alex Sanchez

You Brought Me the Ocean by Alex SanchezMy rating: 3 of 5 starsI liked the premise of the book, unfortunately, this was my least favorite of the four graphic novels that DC Ink provided me for review.

Disney Aladdin: Four Tales of Agrabah – Corinna Bechko

Disney Aladdin: Four Tales of Agrabah by Corinna Bechko My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars When reading comic books and graphic novels, the illustrations are just as important to me as the storyline.

Spider-Gwen – Jason Latour (Graphic Novel)

Spider-Gwen, Vol. 0: Most Wanted? by Jason Latour My rating: 3 of 5 stars I feel like I am in the minority about this graphic novel (and character) as she is called the 'breakout character hit of the year' and I'm just not on board.
