Review: Last year, I got and read the first issue of this short run and reviewed it here. I didn’t know at the time that it would be a short run, but Marvel cancelled it a few months ago, which is disappointing. Along with the groundbreaking nature of the comic, it was a really good story and characters that I wish I could get to know … Continue reading Black Panther: World of Wakanda Volume 1
Review: I can’t get over how good this series is. Just when I feel like I know where it’s going, something crazy knocks it all off course. In case you missed it, here’s my review of the first volume. It’s hard to give a bit of a review and not really give anything away because most of what was great about the volume was what … Continue reading Bitch Planet Vol 2
Review: I read The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore some years ago, so I was familiar with the creator of Wonder Woman, William Moulton Marston, and his proclivities and motivations, but this book goes beyond the creation of Wonder Woman and brings us a full history of her legacy. It dives deeper into the way that Wonder Woman has been received by the masses and … Continue reading Wonder Woman Unbound: The Curious History of the World’s Most Famous Heroine by Tim Hanley
I wrote about superheroes about a year and a half ago here. Mostly, I went into some of my favorite comic book superheroines at the time but have since found some more favorites and some new women to check out. Headliners I already love: Spider-Woman – cancelled. I had found her during the 3 volume run when she had a baby and was being a mom … Continue reading Femme Friday: Superheroine update!
Review: This volume serves as volume 3 for the Princeless series even though it isn’t labeled that way. The next one after just goes on to volume four with Princess Adrienne and then Raven moving on to her own series. Adrienne has been on the run and working to save her sisters, but when she finds another princess locked away in a tower, she decides … Continue reading Princeless: The Pirate Princess
Review: I fell in love with this series back in December when I read Volume 1, Save Yourself, and had been looking forward to this volume ever since. It did not disappoint. I loved the title for this one and the way it plays into the plot. Adrienne is out to rescue her older sister Angelica, the most beautiful princess in the world. It won’t … Continue reading Princeless Volume 2: Get Over Yourself
Review: This volume is kind of a coming home for Silk. I don’t want to give anything away, but I feel like the issues cover a lot of ground in a really short period. They really expand her world. Collects Silk (2015B) #9-13. After the events of SPIDER-WOMEN, Silk’s ever-turbulent life has been turned upside down yet again! What’s a young super hero to do? … Continue reading Silk Volume 2: The Negative Zone
Review: As with the last volume, this was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it also carried through the same problems as the last one too. A top secret mission on behalf of an old friend, a tropical cruise. What could go wrong? Turns out it’s a theme cruise -super-hero themed, naturally -a floating comic con. Now Bobbi is trapped on a boat with a thousand … Continue reading Mockingbird Volume 2: My Feminist Agenda
This week’s topic from the Broke and Bookish: Top Ten Books I Wish Had (More/Less) X In Them (the original idea came from Andi who suggested top ten books I wish had more kissing which I thought could be fun but also realize it might not be everyone’s thing! Could also be top ten books I wish had more diversity in them or top ten … Continue reading TTT: Top Ten Books/Comics I Wish Had Fandoms
