KAGE’s Reviews: Shamrock by Chloe LaPointe aka Ashikai
Shamrock Volume 1 by Ashikai
This volume contains: 190 pages of Shamrock (chapters 1-9) plus 20+ pages of exclusive extras unavailable anywhere else!
So yesterday I got one of the best things in the world. I finally got my hands on Shamrock vol 1. This lovely beauty was made by the amazing Chloe LaPointe or Ashikai as I know her.
When I first saw this masterpiece I was in love with the cover. Most covers I see of comics on nIB (“new”InkBlazers) are boxed in. It was nice to see the cover picture take up the entire cover. It also shows me that once again nIB publishing is one to be reckoned for. These books are beautiful. The book size and pages are just wonderfully done.
Now me personally I have already read all of vol 1. However for those who haven’t;
Shamrock is a story that follows Sir Issac Matthews in the thrilling tale that is his life. He a curious kid whose curiosity landed him a heap of action. He follows his fellow classmate Sam, after noticing her glowing, and unusual findings that she constantly brings to class. Whilst following her, he was caught by Sam who invites him to see with his own “eyes” what shes up to. Let’s just say, no one was expecting what happened next. Especially not Issac.
If I had to be honest, Shamrock is definitely on of those secret loves of mine. It’s one of those stories that don’t get to mainstream and played out but still offers those elements of both shounen and mystery for my tastes.
Anyway back to the book!
The pages in this book really come to life. Way different than reading on a website. Also, most of the time the artists on nIB don’t,and this is just my personal opinion, don’t know what the word “black means”. And by that I mean they don’t use it enough. Most of the pages just blend in with the surroundings. But Shamrock is not that story.
As you can see on the first row of pictures Ashikai uses her blacks wonderfully. They really bring out the action and emotion of the scenes. And speaking of those scenes, isn’t the action on those pages gorgeous?! Simple yet impactful. Not a whole lot is going on, but you can feel the destruction and swift movements; another thing I don’t usually feel when reading action comics/ comics with action in them.
Another great thing about Shamrock is that Sam Rockman is just the cutest thing ever! The second row of picture will show you her cute faces and poses that made me fall hard for her! She is one of the MCs (main characters) for Shamrock, but Issac is like MC number 1.
So, all in all Shamrock vol 1 is one heck of a read. Original story concept, with compelling characters and art. Great story telling, that has seriousness,action, mystery and playfulness. It’s definitely one of those under dog stories that in my opinion should get more recognition.

Per the man law code and if not it should be
I applaud this.
Ok so it was nice of him to do that and all, but are we just gonna ignore how fucking INGENIOUS it was for him to put it under the toilet seat?
Like, I’m simultaneously mad at the girl for cheating, impressed with the decency of the guy letting the boyfriend know, and blown away with the creativity of the placing the note there.
Many mixed feelings.
That’s not just the bro code. That’s just the right fucking thing to do.
Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).
And therefore if you wear a bikini then it is your duty to force men to pay attention to you as a human, not a thing.
never not reblog
And then there’s good ol’ America
This actually makes me so angry. The truth is right here and people see it and brush it aside. We really could make things better. But no, America apparently wants to suck forever.
Thermochromic table by Jay Watson
imagine banging someone on that table
imagine being home alone and seeing imprints on that table
Imagine having a friend sit at that table for a long while, but when they get up there’s no imprints at all.
What if you got up after trying to console a crying friend, and found that you had no imprints… and they were crying because they missed you?
aaaah it was a cool table now it’s a horror/drama story
-Sir, we’ve found this and we needed you to name it.
-But we figured we might as well just call it “Ananas” since the majority of the world refers to it as-
