Oni Press dropped the first issue of Dream Daddy, a comic based on the indie hit video game of the same name. Dream Daddy the game is a dating sim in which you go round meeting a bunch of other dads and dating them. It's packed with dad jokes and gently pokes fun at dating sims in general. It's silly in a self-aware sort of way, though some felt it fetishized male/male relationships. Others were annoyed that you couldn't get an HEA with 100% of the dads.

Sugar is the second Original Graphic Novel (OGN) from Top Cow/Image as they expand the Sunstone universe. When I reviewed the first spin-off, Swing, I was disappointed in the writing, as it was stilted and awkward. I'm happy to say that I didn't have the same issues with Sugar, Vol. 1. Since this is the same writing team, Matt Hawkins and Jenni Cheung, I'm going to speculate a bit as to why I think the writing was better this time around. But first, let's talk plot and art!

What's it like to write about a grim reaper attending college and falling in love? What's it like to draw super cute artwork that also manages to be super gothy? What cake would you bring into the underworld?

Before we jump in here, I'm going to be honest about a couple of things. First off, I'm a child of the 1990's, so I was about the age of these characters during the Spice Girls and Portishead etc. I wore these clothes and watched these shows and a lot of my love of this comic is likely tied up in seeing myself in this book.

Once upon a time, on Twitter, I stumbled across a tweet that said something like "a comic about a Viking girl punching gods and kissing girls." Of course I had to read it! I'm so pleased to tell you that it's exactly what I hoped it would be.

Love in Panels was excited to announce this title back in February, so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see it up for early review. I have a lot to say about it, so if you don't feel like reading on - here's the TL;DR - I adored OPEN EARTH.
