I spent the month of July home in Singapore, visiting friends and family, and then the rest of August in London attempting to cope with Things. Emphasis on attempt.

Asian Lit Bingo [Book Tag]

At the beginning of May I saw Aentee’s post about this month long event called, Asian Lit Bingo. Which is AMAZING, being from Singapore I’m always trying to find more books, especially SFF, written by Asian authors as well as books that ARE Asian in content in someway.

Instead of participating because my reading has been a bit stagnant as of late, I decided to find a book for each of the squares and make a rec list instead!! In retrospect I probably should have posted this earlier, but whatever. Better late than never. 😎

Comics 09/2016 [Crowdfund THIS]

I want to try something new here. Crowdfunding through Kickstarter and the like is a really cool way to get book or comic anthologies published, as well as single books either by indie authors or indie publishers!

So I’ve decided that with this new lil’ category that I’d feature a few cool projects that are currently running, and even a few that are independently sold on websites like Gumroad with every post.

THIS POST has comic projects on Kickstarter that are still running and need your help!!!

Monthly Roundup ↪ Aug💂💷

Oh August. What a weird month you’ve been.

I landed in the UK on the 3rd and then got sick like a day later from ye olde Travellers Flu/Cold. Which then lasted something around 2 weeks. But I powered through that and even went to the Nine Worlds convention, in which I also was part of a Star Trek roundtable!!!

And when I FINALLY RECOVERED, I spent the weekend up in Edinburgh visiting some friends! Which was of course super gr8, but as soon as I got back to England I got sick. AGAIN. And that has taken me about a week to recover from. Which of course was SUPER.

Did I mention I also got my phone stolen OUT OF MY HAND within the first week of being back in the UK? Thanks August. That was… Interesting.

Return to Labyrinth Manga : AKA I Hate Myself [Picture Break]

If you know me well enough you’ll know that my love for David Bowie runs incredibly deep. And in high school, a few of my friends and I got SUPER obsessed with the film, ‘The Labyrinth‘. Starring none other than Bowie himself.

For the uninitiated, the film is from the 80s and is about a girl called Sarah who ends up wishing her baby brother away to the goblin king, Jareth, and realises she wants him back. To do so she has to get through the goblin kingdom in time and in the process learns about herself and makes friends with all sorts of creatures. These creatures are lovable and beautiful creations by Jim Henson and Brian Froud.

In 2006, Tokyopop published a manga series that was meant to be a sequel to the film in which the baby brother of Sarah, Toby, is now a teenager and ends up returning to the Labyrinth??? Honestly I’m not that sure what it is about because I know it is terrible.
