From a young age, Nikki would read any book placed in front of her and has always had an interest in writing. She saw Sailor Moon, Red Dwarf, and Highlander (to name a few shows) on TV and they got her more interested in anime and sci-fi, which led to fantasy, her favorite genre. Right now Nikki is devouring anything Middle Earth related and has very much fallen in love with Tolkien’s world. Nikki plays a lot of video games ranging from Final Fantasy to Mass Effect to Assassin’s Creed III. Nikki has also written her first book! You can find it here if you’re interested. She is currently planning another novel.

What I like about comic books is that they end on a cliffhanger, but the next issue picks it right back up. It’s almost like an old radio serial that ends with “What will happen to our hero? Find out next time!” and that’s very appropriate for Captain Read More
Part three of Senso finds Usagi and Tomoe riding through the nearest town, warning people of the invaders. The invaders are setting buildings aflame and crushing everyone under their metal feet. There is some humor amongst the tragedy, when what I Read More
Usagi Yojimbo issue #2 picks up where issue #1 left off: a massive bomb or spaceship had landed on the battlefield. The warriors of both sides shuffle off, looking like zombies or, at the very least, extremely traumatized by what had happened. A lot of Read More
