What an honor it will be to review for Sea Lion Books. There titles look immensely highly new generation. While I haven't reviewed much mangas, comics, and or graphic novels this blog was created for the purpose of reviewing various books including manga, comics, and graphic novels. I have so far reviewed a small percentage of manga, comics, and graphic novels, so it will a goal for me to keep a healthy flow from now on of trying to vary review content.

The Titles:
Brent Marks is not a freak. He is one of the Pariah, a group of teens who become extremely intelligent after being cured of a genetic disorder. Although in most ways a normal teen, Brent is considered dangerous and is tracked down by the government who see these kids as an enormous threat. Can he evade them? What do they have planned for Brent and the others?

Dragon's Mound (Knight in Shadow #1) by Richard A. Knaak
In Dragon Mound
More than two centuries ago, the three kingdoms of Rundin, Wallmyre, and Tepis banded together at the urging of the wizard Paulo Centuros to combat the ambitions of the sorcerer-king, Novaris. Yet, although they were triumphant and the forces of the sorcerer-king were scattered, Novaris himself was not to be found. Uncertain as to whether their foe was dead, the wizard sent forth the knight Evan Wytherling on a quest to seek the truth about Novaris, no matter how long it took. Still alive despite the great passage of time and the dark forces he has confronted during his fruitless search, Evan returns to the scene of the climactic battle and discovers that the truth may have been under his nose all this time. However, in ferreting out the secrets of Novaris's disappearance, Evan uncovers the sorcerer-king's long-dreamt plot of vengeance...and the fact that not only is he key to them, but that the dead - even dragons - may not rest easy!

In Issue #1 of Storm Born (Dark Swan Comic) 
Eugenie Markham never asked for any of this. Until now, she's been content with her job as a freelance shaman, battling and banishing Otherworldly creatures.

Release Date: November 8, 2011.

Extraterrestrial Compendium seems very spooky. Taken a look through it. The art is very clean-cut and real-looking. Really looking forward to this one!
Expect InExtraterrestrial Compendium:
 Just in time for the approach of the reputedly transformative year 2012, a comprehensive collection of extraterrestrial life-forms as visualized and vividly-rendered by Pat Lee of Transformers, DC, and Marvel comics fame. Within the UFO and exopolitics communities, there is both debate and consensus about many of the "known" extraterrestrial races, but seldom have they been revealed in this level of detail. To the believer, the curious, or just open-minded, the Extraterrestrial Compendium provides fuel for thought.

Here's A Sneak Peek at The Hush, Hush Grapic Novel by Becca Fitzpatrick!
Release Date: January 10, 2012.



The artwork looks pretty good. This series is a definite favorite. Have only read Hush, Hush. Really need to read Crescendo and Silence with Silence having only just having come out! To hear it's going to be turned into a graphic novel really is fantastic news! 

Storm Born overall seems very hyped up, by many book bloggers which should be a great read.
But what I'm really excited for is Extraterrestrial Compendium. The artwork wish I could show here on the blog is just so cool! It's sort of a feature of the aliens people imagine and its history I think. Feel free to correct me.

Dragon's Mound looks truly interesting. There is no mistaking the stunning detailed cover.

Off, to read Pariah #1 by Aron Warner. Oh, and before I forget, if anyone is interested. Sometime next week will post the trailers for Pariah. Bookmark or something this page--blog, so you can come back to see it then. It's scifi-like. You wont want to miss. Let me know what you think!
