Happy Bunsen Burner Day 2015! It's here! The day that you have all been waiting for has arrived! Today is March 31, 2015, and it is officially Bunsen Burner Day!
‘Lumberjanes Volume 1: Beware the Kitten Holy’ - Advance TPB Review Welcome to Miss Qiunzella Thiskwin Penniuiqul Thistle Crumpet's Camp for Hardcore Lady-Types, the Lumberjanes. This all-ages comic has won over the hearts of many since its debut last summer, and this reviewer is no exception. Lumberjanes tells the story of five friends - April, Mal, Molly, Ripley, and Jo - and their adventures at the Lumberjanes camp one summer. And, by adventures, I don't mean learning to pitch a tent or build a fire, what I mean is more of the punching Yetis, solving ancient puzzles, and going over waterfalls variety.
‘Feathers #4:’ Advance Comic Book Review I am really, really mad right now.  Two reasons:

1.  I have to wait another month for the next issue of this incredible series.
2.  There are only two issues left.  WHY?!
‘UFOlogy #1:’ Advance Comic Book Review There’s a lot up there in outer space that we don’t know about – A. Lot. It’s so vast our brains can’t comprehend it. These days, due to the internet, science is able to remind us of this every couple of hours. The mystery hasn’t disappeared, but it’s being talked about a lot more, which makes the mystery to some degree more common, more diluted (Yes, I know how small we are in the grand scale of things, thank you!), so it’s nice to see when creators choose to inject some genuine awe and wonder back into it again and succeed. It’s also nice to know that I’m not so cynical as to not allow myself to be taken away by a kid sitting on his rooftop with binoculars every night, staring into the star-speckled skies, because he knows whatever it was that visited once, may visit again. This is the same wonder that made all those sci-fi films of the '80s so awesome. You saw the universe through the eyes of someone who wanted to know more, but didn’t know how in over their heads they were about to get.
‘Robert Heinlein’s Citizen of the Galaxy #2:’ Advance Comic Book Review Amazon.com says that the paperback version of Robert Heinlein’s original novel, Citizen of the Galaxy, is 288 pages—not super long and, in fact, shorter than many of Heinlein’s other works, but still a fairly substantial story. That said, at the end of this, the second issue of the comic adaptation, were the words, “To be concluded . . . ” indicating that there’s only one issue left. I’m not sure exactly how they can fit an entire novel into three issues or how much they must be cutting out. Regardless, though, what they’ve presented here is a pretty enjoyable and engaging experience.
