The Happenings – March 2017

Another good reading month but not so good blogging month but the move is almost over. It’s technically over entirely, but there are still rooms with moving mess and I won’t call it done until those messes are clean, so maybe I’ll never be fully moved in. I am back to work now and getting time to blog is significantly harder at this job than … Continue reading The Happenings – March 2017

Princeless Volume 2: Get Over Yourself

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

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
