Bookshelf Rachel Rising : The Shadow of Death

Rachel Rising

The first book of November, belatedly posted (as per usual.)

Rachel Rising — Terry Moore : 4/5

Rachel is dead, but she’s very convinced that she’s not dead and instead just having a very, very bad day. She’s trying to convince everyone of the fact that she’s still alive while trying to piece together what happened last night. No wait, was that three nights ago?
Rachel Rising is my first Terry Moore book. I’m pretty sure that picked up the first issue last year’s Halloween during Halloween Comics Fest? Anyway. I have this thing with black and white books, I just want to color them in. That’s not really important to this review. I like horror comics. I like offbeat zombies. (Give me iZombie or give me death!)
Rachel Rising is no exception. I really enjoyed Moore’s art in this and the story was pretty solid too. It ends too soon, and it leaves you hungry for more. Definitely going to have to pick up the second volume.

We Can Never Go Home Mix

Last week, I posted an infographic about the ladies name dropped in Lumberjanes.

This week, I’m supplying the mix Duncan gives Madison in Black Mask Studios’ We Can Never Go Home. I’m pretty sure I got everything, there might be a song missing from Side A, but I got what I could. Trying to figure out what “In My Head” by T.S.O.L. was a pain, so I’m just going to assume that it’s right.

“Terms of Psychic Warfare” and “Bigmouth Strikes Again” might be two of the best songs to include for this series, at least two issues in. And I got a kick out of “Out of Step” following “Attitude”.

Setlist and trailer for the series below the cut!

Today I’m picking out decking for my dad, getting my roots done (emoji prayer hands, seriously) and heading to the Philly Ren Faire. Where I will hopefully see Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson, who plays Gregor “The Mountain” Clegane on Game of Thrones. He’s huge, though and I imagine sort of hard to miss. Anyway, here are some weekend links:

Ladies to the max

One of the comics I have on my pull list and absolutely adore (especially as a former Girl Scout and summer camper) is Lumberjanes.
Sarah, from The Comic Book Shop, once wondered out loud if anyone had ever compiled a list of the famous ladies name-dropped through the comics. So a month (plus) later, I decided pull out issues 1-9, do some research and make a quick infographic. Check it out below the cut!
