I know it's been a while since I talked about comics on here, but have no fear, they're back!!! I recently stopped by my shop and picked up my pull list, 15 issues thick I may add, and I'm ready to start talking about what I'm reading. If you couldn't tell by the title, one of the titles I'm loving right now is America by Rivera and Thompson, about America Chavez, and I'm loving some others as well.
I'm actually pretty upset that no one told me how bad ass America is! I love her! I also love that they aren't pushing her to identify, that she's just queer. The inclusivity in this comic is astounding, literally, I've never felt so represented by a comic book as well as they are doing in this series. Can we talk about how lit that sorority is? I never wanted to be part of the "greek life" in college, but if they were like the Leelumultipass Phi Theta Betas I definitely would have been! The style and looks in this book, I'm itching to cosplay like there's no tomorrow! I'm definitely adding America to my cosplay to do list. The time travel is pretty interesting to me, and I love that she just so happens to be visiting women, it is just an empowering read. This is what I wanted A-force to be. I definitely will be checking out the ultimates, so I can learn more about her. * I read Issues 1-5, published by Marvel, done by Rivera and Quinones*
I was flipping through previews one day and saw Moonstruck on the cover, I knew off the cover that it was going to be added to my pull list. After having the opportunity to interview Miss Ellis about her newest creation, I knew I had to read it, so when I saw it on the shelf, I picked it up without hesitation. Moonstruck is everything I thought it would be and even more. I love fantasy and this comic is chock full of mystical creatures, coffee and queer relationships and I'm all here for it. Just in issue one, I've met a werewolf, centaur, Gorgon, oracles, and a vampire? I didn't see the teeth, but since he went from person to bat that's what I'm assuming. * I read issue 1, published by Image, done by Ellis and Beagle.*
I have been waiting for this issue of Sabrina for so so long. I even did a video about it! I went into my shop and because of the 4th of july they had a late shipment, I came back two days later, and they were damaged. I finally got my copy and I devoured it! While the wait was long, I was NOT disappointed! This issue focused on Edward coming back to life in Harvey's body, and went into full back story and I am all here for it. You learned exactly what makes her father tick and all I can think about now, is what's going to happen when his sisters find out he's back. * I read issue 7, published by Archie Horror, done by Aguirre-Sacasa and Hack. *
Just in case you are new to my blog, I'm Spokhette and I absolutely LOVE murder mysteries. I have a well-watched copy of Clue sitting right next to my television, where I keep my favorite films. So when I walked into my shop and saw Clue sitting on the shelf, I picked it up without a second thought. I was surprised with how much I would like this series. One of my favorite things so far, is the Butler, Upton's ability to break the 4th wall. It even has a little bit of humor! I definitely didn't expect more than one murder, now I'm hooked, can't wait to read the next two issues! * I read issue 1, published by IDW, done by Allor and Daniel.*
