Comic Crush Saturday: August 23rd, 2019
Welcome to Comic Crush Saturday, our bi-weekly feature focused on the graphic elements of the book world. Comics became a huge part of my life a few years ago when I started reviewing them (and comic related TV shows) on Forever Young Adult. I’ve maintained a pulllist through my local comic shop, Isotope Comics, and even got Kelly to start one ;). You’ll find mini-reviews, what we’ve read recently, and more so check it out!
Featured Review of the Week
I am sorry not sorry because this review is just a bunch of shouty WHY HAVEN’T YOU READ THIS YET.
There are so many graphic novels out there that you can read but if you want to read a graphic novel that is solely PURE JOY, pick up the Heartstopper series. Originally a set of characters in Solitaire, Alice’s debut, turned novella, and now a web series, I dare you to pick up Nick and Charlie and not fall completely in love…with them falling in love.

We didn’t know we needed this until we got it…
While I know this is gonna scare a lot of you, I hope you can trust me that we're telling an incredible #CaptainMarvel story and – I think – a story unlike we've ever seen before in Carol's book. So excited to have @LeeGarbett joining us for this bold new arc! ?✨??❤️???⚡️ https://t.co/nkY9BL790c— KELLY THOMPSON (@79SemiFinalist) August 21, 2019
Double dose of Kelly Thompson news. I need to catch up on the latest Captain Marvel BUT I am also trusting.
Okay you convinced me! I’m going to read HEARTSTOPPER. I absolutely love these posts! Thanks so much for sharing them 🙂
I just added this series to my Goodreads. I read Pumpkin Heads last night and highly recommend it! My new favorite graphic novel!
