Looking for something new to read, or wondering if the comic lives up to the hype? As a comic shop employee, I’ve got some recommendations.
Looking for advice on what to read in comics and graphic novels? Let me help.
Staying up to date on ongoing comics is a significant part of my job, as is sharing my recommendations, but why should the customers who set foot in the shop be the only ones to benefit from my discoveries?
There are some terms unique to the world of comic books that every interested party should know when stepping into this brave new world.
Since starting at Golden Apple, a number of comic books I’ve picked up feature female protagonists from various walks of life – and they’re getting all the buzz.
I started this blog in 2008 as I was preparing to graduate from college with a degree in creative writing. I had an unpaid internship as the assistant to a producer; I was submitting my YA novel to agents, short stories to literary journals, and gathering plenty of material on what not to do. (I have an enormous MS Word document of other people’s query letters that are each horrendous in their own way.) A lot has changed since then (and, sadly, a lot has not), but what I always hoped to do with this blog was share my successes and failures in the writer’s market, and possibly help others learn from my mistakes.
So this is what I’m doing: I’m writing a comic book.
