Comics Wrap-Up - Setting Fire To The Sky








Graphic Novels



This week, I reviewed Rendez-Vous in Phoenix by Tony Sandoval (UK - USA ) a generally great graphic novel about a young man crossing the border into America.






There are some issues with the representation of black people, which I went into further in my review, but overall it's a great book.







Other Stuff


I read a fairly damn cool ghost-based webcomic called 'The Auntie' by Alyssa Wong and Wendy Xu.

Over on Women Write About Comics, Sergio Alexis wrote an awesome post about queer rep.

Alexis, quite rightly, points out that The Big Two (Marvel and DC to those who don't speak hard-core nerd,) are cr*p at selling queer comics, but that queer comics do sell elsewhere.

It's a really interesting piece, so give it a glance :)

  2. Women write about comics? That seems like a great article! It's great seeing women join forces and take control of an industry that's usually male dominated! I love that!
