My Thoughts: What is better then a free comic? A free comic that is awesome! And this was most definitely awesome. With new adventures from the Doctors 12, 11, 10 & 9, it was a super fun read. I am so chuffed I came across it on amazon, still free I might add. I can see myself reading it again when I need a quick pick me up. FIVE “I will always love you #10 / Keep on keeping on you scallywag #12” STARS.
Sean (Stuff Happens) by Will Kostakis
Stuff happens sometimes.
At school, at home, with sport, with mates.
For Sean it happened starting at a new school.

My Thoughts: Nawww adorable!! We follow fifth grader Sean as he tackles the terrifying task of starting at a new school and making new friends. Even though this book is aimed around 8-12 year-olds I still enjoyed it immensely. It was full of Kostakis’s entertaining and heart warming style that I know and love from his YA novels. FOUR “I really liked it” STARS.
Saga #37 by Brian K. Vaughan & Fiona Staples
NEW STORY ARC! “THE WAR FOR PHANG,” PART ONE. SAGA is back with its most epic storyline yet, and to celebrate, FIONA STAPLES graces this issue with a gorgeous wraparound cover!

This arc is a self-contained “event” we’ve been building to since our very first issue, so now is the perfect time for readers who love SAGA’s bestselling collections to join our monthly adventures! Goodreads View.
My Thoughts: 37 issues in and this comic is still brilliant! With over three years of awesomeness under It’s belt the saga that is SAGA just keeps on getting better and better. It is a visually splendid and extremely entertaining sci-fi comic series with some important cultural undertones.
I love the motley crew that makes up Hazels’s traveling family and I am looking forward to the adventures ahead of them in the new story arc that starts with this issue. Bring it on Vaughan & Staples. FIVE “I’m addicted and I love it” STARS.

I didn’t know Will wrote middle grade too super cute. Is that part of a wider series? Will have to check it out. I actually have the first few Sagas, but haven’t had a chance to read them as yet. I had no idea it had been going that long, it’s a credit to the author and illustrator for its longevity. Thanks for sharing Sarah and wonderful reviews! ❤
Yeah it’s super adorable. It is part of a bigger series “Stuff Happens”. There’s eight books all up (I think) each by a different author. It’s mainly aimed at boys 7-12, but I think girls would enjoy them too. They’re all about dealing with everyday challenges etc.
