[USB Powered] OxyLED C1 Petent Design, Touch Contr&hellip by OxyLED
4.0 out of 5 stars A Funky Desk Lamp, July 12 2014
I love this funky desk lamp! Only one problem and that is with the clamp though looking through the reviews my problem seems to be a bit different, First, I love the design, very modern and love the colour lime green. A favourite colour of mine which surprisingly goes well in any decor. The adjustable snake arm is great for getting the light to point in just the right direction. I love the LED light, has three settings from a pleasant light glow to quite a bright reading light and it doesn't get hot. Can plug into an outlet with the attachment or directly into a USB port so very portable. I had to fiddle around the first time to find the switch but it's there just kind of invisible… Read more
DC Universe Presents Vol. 1 featuring Deadman & Ch&hellip by Paul Jenkins
I bought this because I'm reading Justice League Dark and Deadman is my absolute favourite character in that.

The art was great though and looking at all the great illustrations of Deadman kept me reading. (3/5)

The second part of this book is about the "Challengers of the Unknown" whom I've never heard of and wasn't really keen on reading but since it was included here, went ahead anyway. And I ended up enjoying way more than the Deadman story! Even though the basis sounded cheesy with the TV… Read more
Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan, Vol. 21 by Hiroshi Shiibashi
3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, July 11 2014
So, things are getting confusing here. Last volume was just ok and this one just didn't make a lot of sense. It does end the 100 stories clan arc though. I really enjoyed that arc but it just petered out at the end. So as we gear up for the finale of this series this book ends with the beginning of a "new chapter". An old enemy returns and a new clan emerges. This has been a good series up to these last few books, I sure hope these concluding books are going to be worthy of it.
