NTYCBD: What I Read 4/8/20

What is NTYCBD? Well, since New Comic Book Day is on hold until who knows when, the tag NTYCBD (New To You Comic Book Day) has been floating around online. And I figured that this was the perfect opportunity to catch up on some of the last issues I picked up in stores before working on my To Be Read pile.

If any of these sound interesting, contact your local shops and see if they have them in stock! If so, and if they’re offering it, use the mail or curbside pick up options, and help support shops during all of this. If your shop doesn’t have them, closed temporarily, etc: some of these publishers are offering their books through their websites.

So, let’s do some mini reviews of what I read, today.

In the near future, space travel is ludicrously expensive and largely ignored.

Review: No One’s Rose

“Centuries after the fall of the Anthropocene, the last vestiges of human civilization are housed in a massive domed city powered by renewable energy, known as The Green Zone. Inside lives teenager Tenn Gavrilo, a brilliant bio-engineer who could rebuild the planet. But there’s one problem: her resentful brother Seren is eager to dismantle the precarious Utopia.
¬†¬†From the minds of Zac Thompson (X-Men, Yondu) and debut writer Emily Horn with artist Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque (Letter 44, Avengers ) comes a gorgeous and green solar-punk world filled with strange biotechnology, harsh superstorms, and divisive ideologies-ideologies that will tear Tenn and Seren down to their roots as they fight for a better Earth.”
