Ursa Minor

Oh, Ursa Minor, how much you surprised me. Seriously, when I first heard of you, I didn’t think you would begin to capture my attention or my imagination. I never thought I’d love you. I agreed to look at you because of Ian‘s talent. Imagine my surprise when you hit my inbox and I got lost in your colors and your lines and your story.

Your story of a world where werewolves kill the president and vampires step in to help humanity was one I sighed at. I, like so many others, am tired of the vampires. You, however, are not about vampires. You are about one girl who tries to save us all from them.

Your pages are filled with the amazing artwork of Ian Snyder, the lines inked in by Merbitt and amazing colors and textures that were added by Luis Guerrero...

Rex Zombie Killer

Yay, another zombie book! I know that’s what you’re thinking and honestly, I thought it too. Zombies are the new vampires and honestly, I’d rather have sparkly vampires. Now, before you throw stones or glitter at me, at least let me finish this review.

Rex isn’t like any other zombie story out there. It isn’t about yet another group of people holed up somewhere shooting zombies in the head in the hopes to survive. Rex is all about a group of animals, including a baseball bat wielding gorilla, making their way across the country. Their goal? Safety and maybe a new home. Their challenges? Zombies (duh!) and the scum of the Earth that somehow always survives these things.

Before you know it, you’ll be falling in love with the characters and if you’re anything like me, cheering them out loud ...

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...

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...
