Unique, entertaining, and such a wild ride! I can't believe I haven't heard of this before because a wizard with a koala 🐨 is something I needed in my life. 😁 I'll definitely read more of this series.

I looooove this! Thanks for introducing me to this amazing stories full of magic and jokes that are so silly that are smart.
Wizord, your not so regular wizard, decides to stay on Earth and live like a human. With magic. And a talking koala. Just like any human,right?
But caos arises and some evil forces are sent to fight him. The story is full of intrigue and cliffhangers. I really really want to read what's next.

A wizard named Wizord is sent to earth to destroy the planet. He soon falls in love with the people & their freedoms & tries to save the planet, with the help of his trusty sidekick Margaret. Absurd, hilarious, a total blast. I picked this one up at the library. Excuse me while I run to my local comic book store for volume 2!

ABSURD, I feel is the right word for this. If you had told me my day was gonna be turned around by a comic with a rogue Wizord, my heart would catch as Margaret the koala would get sucked out of the top of an airplane in air, a hole made by an attacking RubyStitch, that Wizord would regain some power by watching Titanic, I would have told you you were outta your mind. Lol, I loved everything in here. #cursewords #wevegotissues #TeamMargaret

Wizord is most definitely not your typical wizard 🧙‍♂️ 😆 And I love it! And yes, I also love Margaret (the buff koala bear assistant 🐨 ❤️). This was overall a fun read, and I‘ll definitely continue it to see where the story goes 👍

Finally back at Alpha to chill for an afternoon. Have my supplies and an extra large Aztec that Carl and Lori kindly made in my new 30oz tumbler. Finished up the first volume of Curse Words last night for #CBBR / #WeveGotIssues and...WTF? You seriously pick a cliffhanger to start with? Well 🤬! 😂🤣 That‘s definitely a way to make me pick up the next collection. Great start guys! Can‘t wait for May‘s pick! 3.5⭐️‘s.

C.Perone Ok, so rather off topic; but I love that table!! 😍 2y
GarthRanzz @C.Perone They have the best tables to sit at out of all the coffee places we visit. I think it‘s why we have to fight to get a table some days. 😊 2y

MinDea This is a great picture! Are you a bookstagrammer? 2y
GarthRanzz @MinDea I am. Or was. Since I found Litsy I have been focusing my time here. I honestly hate what FB did to Instagram and rarely post there any more. The out of order timeline just makes me sick. 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Awesome that you enjoyed Curse Words! Even more awesome that you are going to continue on. Volume 2 is a lot of fun...and so far so is volume 3 (I'm reading it in singles so it's not actually done yet). 🤘 2y
MinDea Well you can tell! Great photos. Glad you are here and not there cause then I wouldn't see your posts! 2y
GarthRanzz @MinDea Thank you!! My girlfriend is more he bookstagrammer so I get tips from her. 😊 But she has the large following there. I honestly find Litsy more my speed and I love the interaction here! You are really all like family! 2y
GarthRanzz @GrilledCheeseSamurai I‘ve got a copy of volume two so I‘ll dive in since I need to know what happens! And I have a pull set up for the series going forward. 😊 2y
MinDea I have a foodstagram account for my food log but not a bookstagram! I agree. Litsy is more my speed and find I have met "my people" here! Instagram is more about popularity and less about the people behind the accounts like here on Litsy! 2y
GarthRanzz @MinDea My people is the perfect phrase! I even cross-posted there from here but it‘s like you said. Instagram is a big popularity contest. Like high school all over again. And I‘m too old for that 💩! 2y
MinDea Hahaha. I so agree. Ain't nobody got time for dat! 🤣🤣🤣 Well we all enjoy your great photos so keep em coming! I wish I had that ability, but alas I do not. 2y
TricksyTails 😂 I love your review so much! ♥️♥️♥️ Happy you enjoyed it even with that awful cliffhanger! Is that coffee candy? I‘m really envious of that giant tumbler of coffee! Actually, this whole picture is just 😍😍😍! 2y
GarthRanzz @TricksyTails Thank you Tricksy! If you like spicy you‘d like that coffee in the tumbler too. The Aztec is made with a house-made chipotle syrup that I swear is more addictive than cocaine! And, yes. Those are my favourite candy currently; Coffee Rio coffee caramels. Maybe I should send some to a certain someone... 2y
TricksyTails 🤤♥️☕️♥️🍬♥️🌶 You‘re making me drool over here! I NEED that ☕️! House-made chipotle syrup? I would definitely crack out on that & drink it by the gallon! One gallon per hour! I thought those were Coffee Rio candies! They‘re so yummy! 😍☕️🌶 Aww...You‘re too kind! Thank you! You don‘t need to send any candy but keep taking awesome ☕️ photos for me to salivate over please! 🙏 However if they sell you that chipotle syrup I‘ll happily mainline it!🤣 2y
GarthRanzz @TricksyTails Believe me. I try to get them to sell it to me every week! If I ever break down their resistance I‘ll buy double and send you some! 2y
TricksyTails ? I will be forever in your debt! While drinking my boring coffee today I kept daydreaming about this magical concoction! Sigh. I wish I had a good café! 2y

What did I just read? It's such a fun read but man is it freaking weird. I would have never thought to pick this one up if not for #wevegotissues, but I am glad I did. "Stupid fun" is a great way to explain this one. Definitely curious to see what Wizord deals with next and to see what becomes of the revelations at the end.

@TricksyTails @GrilledCheeseSamurai

GarthRanzz Can‘t believe the first collection ended the way it did! I‘m like WTF?! 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai Yay! Glad you liked it. The 2nd volume is just as weird and wonderful as this one and worth reading if you are so inclined! 👌 2y

TricksyTails I‘m so thrilled you enjoyed it! It‘s so ridiculous, it‘s awesome! Does your library offer Hoopla? I saw the second volume on there. 2y
InLibrisVeritas @TricksyTails Unfortunately no, they use the 3M system which is a bit lacking. I'm pretty sure I can find an inter-library loan copy though. 2y

This was such a super fun comic. I never would have thought to read this if not for the #WeveGotIssues buddy read. Now I want to read more. It's got wizards and spurned lovers and a koala. And ummm, what IS the deal with Margaret? That one panel had me like, huh???! I love this varient cover for issue four. #CBBR

Excited for Scott and Tricksy‘s #WeveGotIssues pick for the monthly #CBBR! To quote Scott: “It‘s just stupid fun! Evil wizard grows a conscience. All hell breaks loose.

#WeveGotIssues #CBBR
Okay, I know discussion isn‘t for a month, but I‘ll forget by then. Comics like this are where my new-to-the-genre-ness really shows. I have no idea how to follow the scenes on pages like the ones above and I find that frustrating. I wasn‘t crazy about the storyline or the art. The #teamMargaret and #NotMyMargaret gag was amusing, but not enough to carry the volume. I think I‘ll skip Vol. 2.

GrilledCheeseSamurai Awww. Sorry you didn't like it. Part of the reason I enjoyed this one as much as I did was because of the terrific coloring and the artistic panel mash up's. I guess that's not for everyone though. 🤷‍♂️ 2y
DGRachel @GrilledCheeseSamurai You win some, you lose some. Maybe I‘m just too linear - I excelled at algebra, but struggled with geometry and all that three-dimensional stuff. I appreciate being pushed out of my comfort zone, though, and I‘m looking forward to what you and @TricksyTails pick next. 😘 2y
GrilledCheeseSamurai @DGRachel Glad you aren't giving up on the medium all together! 👍 They can't all be winners for everyone all the time. 🙂 2y

DGRachel @GrilledCheeseSamurai Absolutely! I read my first comic 2 years ago, thanks to Litsy. I know I‘ve barely scratched the surface, and for every one like this one that doesn‘t click for me, there‘s a Saga or Lumberjanes or I Hate Fairyland that I absolutely love. (edited) 2y
TricksyTails Aww I‘m so sorry this didn‘t click with you. I completely understand where you‘re coming from though. I love your algebra/geometry reference! I‘m a math geek! 🤓 I do really love the artwork in this, especially the colors. Happy you‘re not giving up on us though! I hope you‘ll enjoy the next one! 😘😘😘 2y
