Pinocchio #1

The first of many, this pulp novella, combining both comic art and short story prose, chronicles the rise of everyone’s favorite politician Pinocchio. Be prepared to have your childhood ruined further!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not much of a synopsis, I know.  Let me see if I can add a bit more so that y’all aren’t lost. Pinocchio appears to be a college kid who can’t stay out of trouble. From a wealthy family, his mama isn’t impressed and gives him a task to help make up for his bad behavior. There..I think that’s a pretty good summary. Now…on to the review!

The good: The art, while very adult in nature, is very well done. The black and white actually lends to your eyes being drawn to the details...

The Battle for Ameron

The messenger’s ghostly words tickled her ear and caused the shaking to cease. Mariella’s eyes snapped open. The flame of fear was immediately snuffed out and replaced by something that burned even hotter-the spirit of power, tempered by love, directed by a sound mind. She lifted her chin and stared at the wall of churning blackness. It was then that the lightning struck. She basked in its power, for the lightning was hers. It is here in the depths of the mountain and the heights of the stars that the saga ends. One way or the other, it ends.

The Quest for Ameron

Battling evil does not develop character, it reveals it! That is easy to say when evil is not in front of you, darker than night and as numerous as roaches in a slaughterhouse.

The Quest of Ameron is the fourth installment in the Ameron Chronicles series. It is an epic saga that brings you to the distant past and far future in the blink of an eye — a till filled with swords, sorcery, and advanced science that will make you question what you thought you knew.

Rejoin Thomas, Hank, Mariella, and Thierry as they reveal their character through quests that will change them–and Ameron–forever.

When I said that the action picked up in book 3, I wasn’t joking. What I didn’t realize is that it wouldn’t slow down any in book 4...

Alexander Hamilton

A graphic novel biography of the American legend who inspired the hit Broadway musical Hamilton.

Alexander Hamilton was one of the most influential figures in United States history–he fought in the Revolutionary War, helped develop the Constitution, and as the first Secretary of the Treasury established landmark economic policy that we still use today. Cut down by a bullet from political rival Aaron Burr, Hamilton has since been immortalized alongside other Founding Fathers such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson–his likeness even appears on the ten-dollar bill...

The King of Ameron

It is said that whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. These words are from the Ancient Texts so they must be true. The King of Ameron is a tale closer to truth than fiction of a land that has been given that warning. What happens to those who take heed…and to those who do not?

This continuation of the Ameron Chronicles sheds light on a land torn asunder by an evil within, that is no less dangerous than the evil lurking in the shadows. Brothers by birth, bound by the fire of circumstances, Thomas and Hank strive to save a reeling nation. But, to do so, they must accomplish the impossible!
