Comic Crush Saturday: December 22nd, 2018

Crushed on by Christy Jane, on December 22, 2018, in Comics/Graphic Novels, Feature / 0 Comments

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!
