In her youth, Kimberly could be found in the library, devouring books that covered everything from WWII History to Dr. McCoy's latest adventures aboard the Enterprise, with some X-Men thrown in for good measure. Saturdays were often reserved for PBS re-runs of Doctor Who and Red Dwarf. More recently, she's been riding along with the Winchester brothers, and she hopes the Impala doesn't run out of gas for a long time.
Mental illness is very hard to accurately depict, especially in a comic book. However, with the new Echoes series, I have to say that not only was the topic richly covered, but done so in a stunning way. Fialkov's writing, coupled with Ekedal's stark Read More
