Land of the Meat Munchers is by Nicholas Yong aka Incoherent Boy! It’s his first novel and it’s pretty fun! Think of it as young adult adventure book?
Basically it’s a zombie story SET IN SINGAPORE.
If you didn’t know in Singapore, we don’t have guns or ballistic weaponry easily but Nick managed to get it all believable even if we didn’t have them in this post zombie apocalyptic world!

I have one more movie pass left that expires in March so that leaves me with one more movie to wait and save it for. I’ve used the other two on Hunger Games: Catching Fire (YES IT IS GOOD) and now Frozen.
Feel free to give me movie passes if you want or invite me to movie premieres since I can’t afford all of them but what I can afford are words. AND AFTER WATCHING TWO TEMPERATURE EXTREMES (Catching Fire and heh, Frozen), both give different feels but… NOT TOO DIFFERENT?
Well, there’s less killing in Frozen since it’s an animated Disney movie, duh.
I was a bit meh meh about Frozen because of the whole “femme faces are sooo hard to animate” etc etc debacle but ok, besides that I will tell you, this story is NOT Snow Queen at all.
The plot is basically, pretend that I am the princess with the snow powers with a sister. What would I do? Heck yes, I would do all that and sing while at it. Because I can be an idiot too about it.
GUYS. THE TRAILER IS SO STUPID. IT LIES.
IT IS ACTUALLY A REALLY AWESOME MOVIE.
One I would not recommend watching in 3d because it’s so hard when your tears start to pond in the glasses. Yeah, that’s for the beginning of the movie. And maybe the end too. And perhaps the middle…
I think I’m not going to watch 3d movies until they start making drainage systems in 3d glasses.
I watched it in 2d so it was all cool.
SPOILERS IN THIS REVIEW! YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS, GO READ SOME MOVIE CRITIQUE MAG/SITE.

If you want to not be addicted or jump in before they launch a major story line, this issue is the one to jump on. Out of the stack for this week’s shipment, this comic got the most reaction shot out of me.
Let’s get on with the fangirling! For one thing, everyone should know I’m a total Rogue fan so this issue is very fun

Hellooo, it’s been a while since I did this. Nonetheless! I figured I’d just focus on the comics that I’d go gah over more out of the lot in every shipment. Less picture editing then. Major spoilers for BtVS because I am all grah over the plotline.
- Girl Comics No. 1 (1 of 3)
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer #33

Hi ho everyone. Since twitter is just 140 characters, it is clearly not enough for me to squee over the comics I get weekly (or at least whenever a new shipment has the comics that is in my list reserved at G&B Comics).
So this is my first episode of Reaction Shots! Yes, spoilers are included so don’t click if you don’t want to be spoilered. Oh and the illustration above is done by the lovely Mae of Space Kitties! This ain’t a “review” post but more of my own reactions of the comics.
This week’s issues include:
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer #30
- Cinderella: From Fabletown With Love #1 of 6
