Shuri and Man-eaters

Here are two exciting new series that focus on women! Both are fantastic in really different ways so far and I look forward to keeping track of them over time.  Shuri is the first, even though it came out after. Everyone loved Black Panther's little sister so much on the big screen, so Marvel rolled … Continue reading Shuri and Man-eaters

Lumberjanes #33-36 or Vol 9 On a Roll

Review: I love the Lumberjanes!! This time they're competing in a roller derby against sasquatches to help the yetis. Since the beginning of the series, I have adored the way the camp is surrounded by all kinds of mythological creatures and traps. It seems anything can happen and the strangest things always do. Each of … Continue reading Lumberjanes #33-36 or Vol 9 On a Roll

Animosity Volume 1: The Wake

Review: I picked up Animosity for Read Harder this year. It's my comic that isn't published by Marvel, DC, or Image, task 18. I know it seems impossible to find sometimes, but there are quite a few good ones. I have them separated in the comics tab by label too, just in case anyone is … Continue reading Animosity Volume 1: The Wake

Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Review:  I read and reviewed the first book of this series last year, which is available here. I've also gone on, at length, about how much I adore Marissa Meyer and the world she created for this series and the Lunar Chronicles. Gone Rogue continues the story with Iko as the protagonist. As mentioned in the … Continue reading Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Review:   After reading Relish, I just want to sit with Knisley and gush about all our favorite foods. I don't have quite the educated palate, but it's one of my favorite topics. Knisley includes a recipe at the end of every chapter of a food she talks about throughout the chapter too and I am … Continue reading Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Ms. Marvel Volumes 7 & 8

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 … Continue reading Ms. Marvel Volumes 7 & 8

Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

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 … Continue reading Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

Champions Volume 1: Change the World

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 … Continue reading Champions Volume 1: Change the World

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!

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 … 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 … Continue reading TTT: Top Ten Comics I Meant to Read in 2017 but didn’t
