Corey the Zombie Killer

I know what you’re thinking. What in the heck is Katrina doing? Zombies? The girl is the biggest wuss known to wussdom and suddenly she’s doing reviews on books that have the word zombie in the title? Has she lost her mind? Is she smokin’ something? Has she finally cracked? Will she ever be the same? Why did it take her months to figure out that CZKWorld probably stood for Corey the Zombie Killer World? Are fruit snacks really a breakfast food?

Ok, or maybe you’re just curious but not really having an entire internal dialogue like I just did. Just remember, I have never, in all of my 12+ years of blogging, claimed to be entirely sane or psychologically balanced.

Keep that in mind as I tell you about CZKWorld Studios’ Corey the Zombie Killer...

The Legend of Oz : Wicked West

Welcome to another comic book review! This one comes to us from Big Dog Ink. I first met these guys at the Detroit Fan Faire back in September and I have to say that they were super nice and friendly. I know what you’re thinking..”Of course they were nice and friendly. They were there to promote their product.” You would think that’d be the case, right? Sadly, that’s wrong. There were a lot of people there who were actually quite rude and others that just weren’t great with people. Artist temperaments aside, if you want to sell product, you have to be nice to the people. These guys? Super nice. If you ever get the chance to go to a con that they’re at, I highly recommend stopping by and saying hi. Even tell them I sent you....

Grimm Fairy Tales Myths & Legends 11

As some of you may remember, earlier this month, I revealed a secret to you. I, girly girl extraordinary, have a thing for comic books. I know this shocked many of you so I’ve given you a few weeks to mull this over and come to terms with it before posting my 2nd ever comic book review. I really do hope that you’ve come to terms with it because as of..well, recently, I’m an “official” reviewer for a couple of really awesome comic book publishers. I ought to ask them if they have awesome blog buttons or anything, but honestly, that’s a total sidebar and not the reason y’all are still reading…right? Let’s get to the review!

For my very first ever Zenescope review, I was sent a copy of Grimm Fairy Tales Myths & Legends Issue #11...

Christmas Fire

Little known fact. I like comic books. More known fact. I know nothing about DC comics or any other big name comic book company. Don’t ask me who an artist is or who wrote what. I won’t know the answer. I suppose some might consider it impressive that I’m so uneducated about these things, but it’s really not. Comic books have always been a form of literature that I’ve appreciated but not one that I’ve had a lot of exposure to. My earliest memory of comic books is the box of them that my grandma always had at her house. In fact, that box is currently residing in my barn. The comic books aren’t worth much but I want to board and bag them just to protect them since they’re old and they’re from my grandmother.

Now, I know you guys...

Detroit Fanfare 2011 : Or..My First Comicon!

If you had asked me even two years ago what I was doing for my birthday, you never would have heard me say I was going to a comic book convention. In fact, had someone suggested it, I most likely would have snorted and said, “and why would I want to do that?” You see, I was in the closet about part of my geek nature. Everyone knew I was into music and if you caught me unsuspecting, I’d even answer some sci-fi question without thinking. Now, fast forward to my birthday 2011. Want to guess where I spent it? Yep, at the Detroit FanFare Comic Book Convention. Ok, technically, it was the day after my birthday but since it fell during my birthday weekend, I’m counting it.

FanFare was held at Cobo Hall in Detroit. I had never actually been there before, but it wasn’t too hard to find...
