Review: This series just continues to get better. If you’re new to it, here is a link to other reviews. Volume 7 (#13-18) The main story is title Damage per Second but the volume also includes two other stories, one at the end and one at the beginning. The first issues is Election Day because Hydra has a few more tricks up their sleeves to … Continue reading Ms. Marvel Volumes 7 & 8
Review: My first Read Harder 2018 book! This was my choice for task #8, a comic written or illustrated by a person of color. Though I try to read about other cultures, I do have a tendency to get the terms for things mixed up. I do this with my own mix of Cuban and American things, routinely forgetting what my mom calls some things … Continue reading Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani
Review: I am absolutely in love with the Champions! I had a feeling I would enjoy it given how much I adore Kamala Khan but this went far beyond my expectations. After the events of Civil War II (discussed here and here), several of the younger Avengers are fed up and quit. They joined the Avengers in the first place because they were more than … Continue reading Champions Volume 1: Change the World
Review: I read the first two volumes in this run a while back and had been meaning to catch up on her. The others are reviewed here: Volume 1, Volume 2, and Spider-Women. I finally got a chance to read this one and it was a good send off to the run. I’m not so excited that her run is over, but this is a … Continue reading Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!
I had a few ups and downs but managed to get it together and read most of the books I had intended to read for the year. Comic books, not so much. Here are the comics I meant to read this year but didn’t, and totally plan to read in 2018! Don’t forget to check back with the Broke and Bookish to see more … Continue reading TTT: Top Ten Comics I Meant to Read in 2017 but didn’t
Review: Ms. Marvel has been a favorite of mine since she came out a few years ago. Volume Four: Last Days (#16-19 and Amazing Spider-Man #7-8) What would you during the apocalypse? I love the way this volume answers that question, and for more characters than our protagonist. More than that, getting back into these volumes reminded me why I love this series so much. … Continue reading Ms. Marvel Volumes 4-6
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!
