Review: Legend of Korra : Turf Wars Part One


This volume picks up immediately after the finale of the animated series.The creators of the show had made it very clear after the finale that Korra and Asami were together as a couple, and tha future stories would in the comics would follow this storyline to fruition.

And this volume does that within the first few pages. As Korra and Asami move through the Spirit World they talk about their feelings for each other and how they developed over the years. The pair also share a sweet kiss cementing their committment to each other.

Their vacation is cut short because of upset spirits so Korra decides to visit her parents. After an awkward revelation to her family the pair return to Republic City to find a chaos worthy of the avatar's attention and a reunion with old friends.

I really loved the action in this volume and the amazing way they adressed the partnership of Korra and Asami. 

It was beautifully done and was a natural extension of the story threads of the show.

Review: The Last Jedi Visual Directory



The Visual Dictionary is a great processing tool, since the guide for The Force Awakens in 2015 I knew that buying these books would be a ritual for my after every film. 

The Last Jedi left me stunned after my first viewing , so when this guide arrived I was so excited to get more info on the characters and tech from the film. 

Of course I went straight to the Porgs page to learn more about the critters, and I was also interested in the Praetorian Guard. The photos are very crisp and highly detatiled which makes this a must guide to delve deeper into the Last Jedi.

Review: Chewie & The Porgs by Shinick & Hsieh






I fell really hard into Porg love from the minute I saw them in the Last Jedi trailer. This book was one of my most anticipated  Last Jedi tie in books.

Hsieh's art is gorgeous! The story is set on Ahch-To. The narrative takes readers through the planets occupants. From the caretakers, to Luke Skywalker and of course the Porgs! We see the porgs going through their various daily activities until the Falcon lands on the planet.

Chewie's arrival interfere's with the porgs ability to get food so the story revolves around Chewie finding food for himself and his pesky friends. 

A heart metling read! I know some have been able to resist the lure of the porg but this book is a must have for #PorgNation fans.
