While on the topic of comics, I finally managed to read Pretty Deadly #5. This comic is in my top 3 favorite I’ve ever read. Kelly Sue DeConnick wrote this flawless, whimsical yet gritty story that is amplified a million times by Emma Rios’ art. As highly as I recommended The Wicked & The Divine, I recommend this just as (if not more so because it stole my heart first) highly.
I can’t lie, when I reached the end of this issue and the end of volume one, I cried.

My costume lineup for DragonCon in pics!  I left off my Thursday night steampunk outfit, because I don’t have a picture of it and I couldn’t figure out anything good to represent it.  Also, my version of Wonder Woman is a rockabilly-inspired original design, so I chose this particular image because I thought it best suited the concept behind the costume.  Finally, I’m not actually doing Mami from Madoka Magica, I’m doing a steampunk magical girl, but my outfit ended up looking surprisingly similar by accident, so that’s a bit of an in-joke. ;)

Comic Review: Pretty Deadly Issue 1

carleyblue:

When I passed the first volume of this title to Dave (my bestie and cohost of our podcast House of Nerd), I described Pretty Deadly as.. 

"It’s like a dark manga mixed with a spaghetti western that tells the kind of epic fairytale that would make the Brothers Grimm proud. The kind of fairytale that is defiantly NOT Disney but filled with consequence, danger and allegory. It’s ‘other’ and I LOVE it." - Carley in an overexcited tone. 
I’m sticking to this brief description for this review because it’s just swell and I don’t want to rob you of discovering the intricacies for yourself. 
Now, I’ve previously expressed my girl crush for writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (both in podcast and blog - as well as nearly fainting when she favourited a tweet. I have a problem) so let me tell you instead about Emma Ríos
Ríos is an artist that has previously collaborated with DeConnick on a miniseries called Osborn (yet to read, it sounds rad).
Ríos creates the visuals for the manga meets western world of Pretty Deadly and her covers are pretty spectacular with an overall palette that balances between feminine and sepia. What I really like about her work is the little zoom panels. Now look, I have no language for comic layout so bear with me, but these little nuggets of detail (seriously, if there is a term for this, please let me know, it’s gotta be a better name than nugget) draw the readers attention on any given page and elevate the story beautifully. 
This is such an engrossing title. Get on board.  
Note to Kelly Sue and Emma - please release more, one volume is not enough of this world.

Working on it!  (And thank you.)

So I haven’t really ever done fan art before, but I wanted to draw Deathface Ginny since I first read Pretty Deadly so here it is, kinda unfinished but I’m pretty happy with it.
