Happy First Day of Spring!

For almost two years now, Flint, Bone, and I have been participating on a blog called Thousand Mile Walk with several other writers.  On the blog, we practice our writing skills so that we can grow and improve as writers.  We write essays, poems, short stories, reviews, and other types of compositions on a variety of topics.

Here are some articles from that blog which Flint and Bone have written related to comics.  My comments on some of the stories and movies I have watched and read are in italics.

Graphic Novels

Cardboard

Cardboard by Doug TenNapel – Flint examines the story, artwork, and worldview of a modern graphic novel written for middle grade boys.  This is a really creative book.

Ruse by Mark Waid – Flint reviews a captivating detective story reminiscent of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories.  I found this book to be well-written and well-illustrated.

Movies and Television

Arrow Season 3

Guardians of the Galaxy – Bone reviews the popular superhero movie released by Marvel.  Guardians is entertaining and lighthearted – even making fun of itself and the superhero movie genre at times.

Arrow – Flint takes a close look at the currently airing superhero television series which is already in its third season.  This is a captivating series where the characters wrestle with difficult questions about what true justice is and what differentiates villains from vigilantes. It’s a good watch for a discerning audience.

Webcomics

Speed Bump

Adam4D by Adam Ford – Flint reviews a digital webcomic that he discovered.

Speed Bump by Dave Coverly – Another comic that Flint found and reviewed.
