Saga Deluxe Edition, Volume 1

  Earlier this year, Humble Bundle released an Image Comics bundle. ( If you haven't checked out Humble Bundle before, you should. It's an amazing company doing amazing things. ) I had been in the mood to start reading some Graphic Novels - Something different. The bundle included some titles such as 'Invincible', 'Chew', 'East of West' and more. (Image Comics, in case you didn't know, is the publisher for 'The Walking Dead' by Robert Kirkman.)

Avalon

I just finished reading 'Avalon' and I had to write this review right away! This is the second book from the lovely Mindee Arnett I have read, and I must say, this is my FAVORITE out of the two! The first one I had read was 'The Nightmare Affair'. ( See my review here. ) 'The Nightmare Affair' had been difficult for me to get into because I found the beginning slow. ( It was still a great book ) HOWEVER -  I knew  Mindee had written another book in a new series, and I wanted to give it a shot. With 'Avalon, this book has me sucked in right from the first chapter! It is so full of action...
