Book Review: “A Brief Theology of Periods (Yes, Really)” (Rachel Jones)

The novelty of this book is the selling point for me to get this book. I’ve reviewed books that are quite unique and rarely been discussed. Books on sleeping, sports and poetry plus an unfinished book on writing got my attention. Then this book on menstruation came and could be the most peculiar book that I have encountered. But I got some questions as I read this latest from Rachel Jones: Does this book stands on biblical grounds or it’s just to tease our curiosity? Do we really need a book like this in the first place? After diving in the book, I found answers to those inquires.

Comicbook Review: Balsamus: The Lost Lamb & Chapter 1: The Watchers

Welcome to another comicbook review and we will dive on two Balsamus books from Brazilain artist and writer Karolyne Rocha and Brainy Pixel. Both books are short having 12 and 16 pages respectively, that’s why we will review them in one post.

Cover Art: The two heroes (?) of Balsamus graces both issues, one having a bust portrait and the second issue the full body. Although it doesn’t give away the story or adventure they’re in but by just looking at it the drawing, it’s definitely manga. It’s not manga inspired, it 100% manga. Once you go to each issues, you’ll admire Rocha’s story. The black and white interiors, the vibe and Rocha’s treatment of the characters are legit manga. Line this comic with what Viz Media or Tokyopop are dishing out, you’ll never notice the difference. Plus the aesthetic of having dents on the cover making the comic look like old adds the awesomeness.

When you scout out a plan of action for your transition somewhere, focus on the milk and honey rather than the supposed “giants.” There may be giants, but that does not mean they will defeat you. And they certainly should not dissuade you from following the Lord’s leading. There is no one on earth who can subvert the call of God.”
