I Want My Firefly D: DAMN IT

 

It goes without saying that the Firefly/Serenity fandom is one of the strongest out there (step aside Bronies!). The show lasted one season, has been cancelled since December 2002 and yet at Fanexpo 2013 in Toronto, hands raised to once again ask guest speaker, Nathan Fillion, “Will Firefly come back?” Fillion handled it as delicately as possible by saying that sadly it wont be coming back , but we had to admit that it ended well for fans with the movie Serenity (2005). 805 more words

Habibi

This truly amazing graphic novel by Craig Thompson, author of Blankets, boasts outstanding artwork and a tale of romance, tragedy, loss and redemption. It is fueled by mythology, both Islamic and Christian, with stories from the Koran and the Bible, and underlines the power of words in both cultures. 232 more words

The surrealist magic that is Shaun Tan’s mind.

I’ve known of Shaun Tan for quite a while now without actually reading any of his (picture) books / graphic novels / masterpieces, but it’s only when you actually experience the almost achingly beautiful world of Shaun Tan that you will fully understand what people are raving about. 257 more words
