Silk Volume 2: The Negative Zone

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

Mockingbird Volume 2: My Feminist Agenda

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

Paired review: Marvel’s Civil War II and Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 2

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 … Continue reading Paired review: Marvel’s Civil War II and Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 2

TTT: Top Ten Books/Comics I Wish Had Fandoms

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

Invincible Iron Man: Ironheart

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

FF: Book Moments that made my little feminist heart flutter

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

Thor Volume 2: Who Holds the Hammer

Review: This volume had some great moments! This has been an interesting ride so far and I’m intrigued to see where this series goes. Who is the new Thor? That’s the question on everyone’s lips. Most especially the original Thor! And now he starts to narrow down the list of suspects. Meanwhile, tensions continue to flare between the All-Mother and All-Father, Malekith the Dark Elf … Continue reading Thor Volume 2: Who Holds the Hammer

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 1: Baby Talk

Review: This comic made my little feminist heart flutter in a whole new way. Female friendships! Kickass women! Truth about maternity and motherhood and being a new mom and just one embellishment about what is humanly possible immediately after a c-section. Jessica Drew is a private investigator, a super hero and…a mom-to-be? Since we last saw her, Spider-Woman’s got a whole new responsibility -now she’s … Continue reading Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 1: Baby Talk

Black Panther: World of Wakanda

Review: I have been excited and anticipating this ever since it was announced that Roxane Gay was going to be a writer for this comic and it did not disappoint. “YOU DESERVED SO MUCH MORE, LITTLE FLOWER. YOU DESERVED A WAKANDA THAT CHERISHED YOU.” Writer ROXANE GAY (Bad Feminst, Hunger) spins a Wakandan love story — its tenderness matched only by its brutality. You know … Continue reading Black Panther: World of Wakanda

Mockingbird Vol 1: I Can Explain

Review: This was so much fun! But I’ll warn you that some of the rest of this review gets pretty feminist and a little rantish at times. Okay, mostly. the things is that it was so much but it was not intersectional and I’ll get into that down below. Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Bobbi Morse, the former Avenger known as Mockingbird, goes solo in her own … Continue reading Mockingbird Vol 1: I Can Explain
