Fresh is the Word Mini-Review: Bodie Troll by Jay Fosgitt (BOOM! Studios)

Bodie is a troll trying to be scary but he’s too damn adorable! The stories are funny and interesting, and ultimately about having self-love and appreciation for those who genuinely care about you. Jay’s artwork is so amazing and visually unique that is brings out the joys, the sadness, and even the grumpiness of Bodie and his wild collection of friends and enemies. In the end, as much as he doesn’t act like it, Bodie is a great protector of his friends and possesses strengths he didn’t even know he had. Bodie Troll is a great comic for all ages! I wish this was an animated series also because it would be even more hilarious!





Fresh is the Word Mini-Review: She Said Destroy Issue #4 (Vault Comics), From Author Joe Corallo and Artist Liana Kangas

The best thing about Issue 4 of She Said Destroy from Joe Corallo and Liana Kangas is that the story just intensifies leading to the climax waiting in Issue 5. What will happen? I don’t know and that’s the best part. The air of unknown makes this comic so damn interesting! Plus, we are getting some of Kangas’ best work in this series, especially her full page, one-pane illustrations that really tie the emotions and consequences of the story together.
