We here at No Flying No Tights have been as affected as everyone else by the complications and changing responsibilities of this past year.  Due to the changing nature of many of our reviewers duties, and our entire team’s professional responsibilities, we decided to give everyone the chance to take a breath and recharge.  While we aim to post a review every week day in normal times, for the month of March we will be taking a hiatus from posting reviews.

We will continue to post special features, including our reader’s advisory lists, and we encourage our readers to check in over this month and let us know any topics related to comics and graphic novels you’d love to see us cover in the future by commenting on this post.

In the meantime, we encourage you to explore our features of the past, including our Staff Picks and Classic Fantastic lists.

See you in April!
