Joe Biel: Bicycle Culture Rising #4 (Paperback, Microcosm Publishing, LLC) 5 stars

Learn about Kittie Knox and the early history of cycling in the US

5 stars

This thoroughly researched zine paints a fascinating portrait of Kittie Knox, a firebrand and an advocate for change in the early days of cycling. It explores her complicated relationship with the main cycling organization of her time, the League of American Wheelmen (today the League of American Bicyclists). And it describes her legacy, and how many of the issues of her day are still relevant today.

Joseph Mallozzi, Paul Mullie: Dark Matter Volume 1: Rebirth (Paperback, 2012, Dark Horse Comics) 3 stars

The six-person crew of a derelict spaceship awakens from stasis in the farthest reaches of …

I recently heard there was a new series called Dark Matter coming out and briefly got excited until I realized it has nothing to do with the TV series of the same name from 10 years ago.

But it did prompt me to finally check out the graphic novel the show was based on. It's not bad, but honestly the TV series was more satisfying because it had time to develop the characters. As far as I can tell the Dark Horse comic series was a pitch for the TV pilot. Apparently it was an effective one.

I'm still wishing we could get a new Dark Matter miniseries or novel or something to continue following the Raza or at least tie up the loose ends where the show got cancelled.
