"Vengeance, Nevada" sets tone for future issues of comic

Author of the book Social Media Is Bullshit, B.J. Mendelson, delves into the creative world of comic fiction with his addition to the field, “Vengeance, Nevada.” Cover art for the issue is provided by Isidore Koliavras and interior art and letters are by Peter Czaplarski, with the story and characters written by Mendelson himself. The comic begins with the main character who is first introduced by walking into a house where she is quickly greeted by a cat, and after some dialogue she leans back, commenting on her exhaustion before drifting off.

Editor’s Note: This story was originally published on April 9 in the New Mexico News Port, under the headline, "Working Together to Preserve a Community," written by Nichole Harwood.

Book Review: “She Wolf and Cub” tells powerful story through cyborg’s accidental motherhood

Lilith Saintcrow’s “She Wolf and Cub” succeeds in so many ways where other dystopian worlds before have failed. Dystopian futures are not generally the most unique of settings. It’s been done before, but perhaps because Saintcrow is so willing to push the limits it has never been done quite like this. Saintcrow poses the question on her website: “Have you ever said to yourself, ‘Self, where are all the cyborg assassin Westerns, because I really want to read one?’” She responded by writing one herself. Answering a need most of us didn’t even know we wanted.

Column: Facebook may be to blame for strong political divide

Waking up and browsing Facebook is a common, often daily activity for the average individual in this day and age. Just as common is the barrage of memes and graphics plastered across the screen when logging in. These memes and graphics vary in accuracy, with some ranging from insanely inaccurate to strangely true. One graphic circulating on the site can be filed under the strangely true category.

Book Review: "Poison or Protect" hits all the sweet spots

Have you ever read a story with an ending that left a smile on your face? Every avid reader has one — or in my case multiple. A story that makes them laugh, cry and yes, just smile. As a reader I am not prone to enjoy romances. I find most stories centered around a romance to be dreadfully boring, and I can normally only enjoy a good one when it’s surrounded by much more interesting plot points.

Nob Hill merchants still awaiting ART's benefits

Editor’s Note: This story was originally published on Feb. 19 in the New Mexico News Port, under the headline, "Nob Hill merchants still awaiting ART's benefits," written by Nichole Harwood. This is part of our project to help connect the Daily Lobo audience to more members of our community. With the arrival of ART — Albuquerque Rapid Transit’s dedicated bus line — many longtime businesses find themselves still waiting for the project to deliver on its promises while enduring more than a year of disruption. The Nob Hill Business Community has emerged as one of Albuquerque’s most popular districts for restaurants, entertainment and boutique shopping. Home to many locally owned businesses, Nob Hill is located just east of the University of New Mexico, spanning a mile-long stretch of Central Avenue.

Book Review: "Cinder" mixes fairytales with dystopian fiction

No. 1 New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Marissa Meyer plunged me, along with many others, into a thrilling adventure when she published her first book in her “Lunar Chronicles” series, titled “Cinder” back in 2012. Then, she left her readers equally breathless when the series wrapped up with the book “Winter” in 2015. Meyer hasn’t left the world she meticulously set up in her “Lunar Chronicles” behind however. Readers were given another glimpse through “Wires and Nerves,” a graphic novel sequel series written by Meyer and illustrated by Douglas Holgate, the second part of which was released Jan. 30 of this year.
