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
These two really go together and I can’t talk about one without going on about the other, though their ratings aren’t intertwined. Because here’s the thing, I am not a big Captain Marvel fan. She has all the trapping of a character I should love but I just don’t. It happens. Iron Man is a fave on the big screen but really only because of Robert Downey … Continue reading Paired review: Marvel’s Civil War II and Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 2
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
Review: Here we have the next story line for the Lumberjanes series and we get to catch up with the Greek gods in this one!! Diane is back and with a quest that the girls have no choice but to get in the way of. I’m not going to add the synopsis of each comic so I … Continue reading Lumberjanes #29-32 Diane is back!
Review: This is actually for both Invincible Iron Man #1 and #2 since #2 came out when I finally got a chance to read #1. It’s also my Read Harder 2017 superhero comic with a female lead cause she’s taking over the title, for at least a while. From the violent streets of Chicago, a new armored hero rises! Clad in her very own Iron … Continue reading Invincible Iron Man: Ironheart
It’s Femme Friday! I normally reserve my list making for Top Ten Tuesdays, but I couldn’t help myself. I had just read a few books that made my heart flutter and wanted to share those moments along with some other great ones from throughout the year. I’m not one to flat out call a book feminist because there can be a bit of a hard line and … Continue reading FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter
