One of these days I’m going to have to read Susan Sontag’s “Notes on ‘Camp’” and various responses to it cause I don’t know if Riverdale does “camp” but it definitely feels cut from the same cloth. *sigh* Why do I always give myself more work?
Get ready to know the difference between an oboe and an elbow because Scout sure didn’t at the start of Jade Armstrong’s “Scout is Not a Band Kid,” their debut graphic novel. Armstrong, a member of the Ontario based online collective Hello Boyfriend, kindly chatted with us about their new comic, explaining Canadianisms to Americans, […]
For a minute, I was worried this episode would be indulging in some Librarian slander. Thankfully, it is very pro-library. Fuck the Percivals of the world. They can fall into a deep, unending pit of moldy, unread copies of “Rush Revere.”
Normally on the weeks MMM doesn't do a book club, there are a couple recurring segments but, with a new era of X comics, Jaina and Elias thought they'd change things up, mostly so they weren't reading a list of over 30 comics every other week that's mostly, but not always, the same.
I’m still reeling from the big reveal last week. Fire and brimstone, biblical apocalypse. What an escalation of stakes. So how did Riverdale follow it up?

Lucy Knisley is the cartoonist behind 8 graphic novels, at least 1 picture book, and a slew of online auto-bio comics (a few of which we looked at for our webcomics column years ago.) Frequent library visitors may recognize “Kid Gloves,” which was a 2019 Library Reads pick, and from her keen eye for storytelling […]
Welcome back all you Riverdale fans! If you thought last week’s episode was a weird one, you haven’t seen nothing yet. You know things are heating up when we’re promised a shirtless boxing match with Archie Andrews, and that’s just the spark that sets the whole thing ablaze. At least until that wet blanket Percival […]
