Southern Fried Fangirl vs. NetGalley

I have this little program called ComiPo and I thought it might be fun to make little web comics for my blog.  Here’s my first attempt.



I've been reading and collecting comics since the early 1980's. My absolute favorite comic characters are Dick Grayson, and Kitty Pryde, but I like lots of others too! I started collecting single issue comics when I was about 7 or 8 years old and it's been a lifelong passion of mine.

    1. Haha, 😉 I exaggerate to be funny but it’s true that EVERY TIME I apply for more than one book at a time EVERYTHING I ask for gets approved and I’m scrambling to read them in the allotted time.

      1. Haha well it was definitely funny and got the point across. 666 was a very interesting number you came up with too. heh. Maybe the devil messed around with your requests to swamp you with never ending work!

        Lucky, I got scared off from netgalley. The thought of requesting a novel scares me.

        How much time do they usually give you per novel?

      2. You got the 666 reference exactly. 😉 Aside, most of the publisher’s request that you post reviews after the book is released and available for purchase. Not always though. I got myself in a fix around Christmas when I got one that I though was 11 short stories but ended up being a “boxed set”– They weren’t very good novels either; I thought I’d never make myself finish them. Right now I’m only requesting graphic novels so it shouldn’t be too much of a hardship to keep up to date.

      3. WOOT! Similar minds think alike? Haha. jk. It’s a pretty popular reference, I’ll be surprised if someone didn’t get it.

        Yeah. I love graphic novels because they’re easy and fast to read, while containing great plot and characters. Have you checked out Saga before?

        Is there a penalty for not finishing any of the requested novels?

      4. Penalty? Well, it will bring your read to review ration down I guess. I would think you would have a harder time getting approvals it you get a bad rep for not doing it. I’m a good girl and always do my reviews so I’m not 100% sure…

        So many people like Saga! Unfortunately I’m not one of them. 😦 {Sorry!} For me it was just too much crude stuff… that and excessive profanity usually turn me off a lot of times… Maybe I’m too much of a goody two shoes. I read lot of different types of comics but DC super heroes are my absolute favorites.

      5. Ooh! I haven’t read many comics, but i see a few pages on reddit from time to time.

        Yeah people are hyping Saga up for me. I’m so glad you don’t like it and you shared the reasons why. 😀 It helps. I’m not one for crude humor also. I don’t really understand it much… So it flies over my head.
