I’ve already shared some of my nerdy habits with we heart readers, so here’s another one, I enjoy the occasional comic book, or as we’re calling them these days, a Graphic Novel. This week I was thrilled to learn the latest book to get the graphic novel treatment will be the “update” of a Jane Austen classic, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
While I wasn’t a huge fan of the PP&Z Novel, I think a comic version of this newly gory and action packed read is a natural selection. So, I’m sharing the glorious press release cover for this week’s Photo of the Week (fans of the book will recognize it). You can pre-order your PP&Z Grapic Novel through Things From Another World now (comic book girl says first editions may someday be valuable) for the May 5th release!
• I blame Buffy the Vampire Slayer for introducing me to the joys of comics. If you loved Buffy, check out my favorite graphic novel to date, Fray. It’s Buffy meets Blade Runner with a tale of a futuristic slayer.

Thanks to Cute Overload (naturally) for this adorable clip of a teeny-tiny pony playing with his ball. I’m not sure what part I love most, the gleeful neighs as he scampers around or the big ball of happy energy, freak out run at the very end. I better watch it again, so I can make my decision. Happy weekend!
