Latest comic book haul from Criminal Records! I’m pretty pleased if I do say so myself.
I’m really excited to check out Jeff Lemire’s new project Plutona, though I do need to find issue #2. Bitch Planet Book One – finally!! Lumberjanes without Noelle Stevenson is tragic but I will persevere. Jughead gets his own book yay though I wish I had a better variant cover, that sounds douchey and I’m sorry. Also a side character finally getting his own comic – Chewbacca!! And 3 biggies from Marvel – Secret Wars, A-Force, and Ms. Marvel!
What’s been on your pull list lately?
I didn’t get around to posting yesterday because our cat Bear was missing!! He went on a weekend long adventure into the great outdoors that nearly gave Mark and I a heart attack. After searching on foot/by car, going to the animal shelter and hanging flyers, Bear turned up this morning laying on the porch like nothing had happened. We are very happy to have the little troublemaker home.
On to comics! Just 3 this week plus a super awesome ARC.
Giant Day #5 – Probably my favorite issue yet!! I’m glad this was such a strong issue because I was a little indifferent about the last issue. Issue 5 saves the day.
A-Force #2 – A lot is going on which seems like an understatement. Still s relative newbie to comics, I am working on navigating Battleworld and Victor Von Doom. I’m loving all the the action. All the wonderful ladies in one comic is making want to seek out the solo comics especial She-Hulk.
Lumberjanes #16 – Month after month I love these girls. The girls are reunited with Jen and we get some more backstory of Rosie and the old Bear Woman.
Black Widow Forever Red by Margaret Stohl – So so excited to have nabbed this ARC from my bookshop Little Shop of Stories and I can’t wait to pass it around my book club. Due out this October, I’ll post a full review before then, hopefully within the next month.
What comics are you reading??
While I made sure to go to Criminal Records this past holiday weekend, I clearly did not make posting about it a high priority. I beg for your forgiveness! See my humble offering:
Wytches #6 – You will not believe who pledged Sailor to the wytches in the chilling conclusion to the first story arc.
A-Force #1 – Yay it’s here!! Even though I was a little lost (this post from Panels helped a lot!), I thoroughly enjoyed so many bad-ass ladies in one comic book!
Lumberjanes #14 – A new story arc starts up as Jen is attacked and kidnapped in a freak summer snow storm! Of course the ‘Janes refuse to sit by and they set out to rescue their beloved camp counselor themselves!
In related news, I read and LOVED Nimona by Noelle Stevenson, featured on last week’s Sunday Comics. It was incredible – funny, serious, adorable, sad, ALL THE FEELS! This week’s Oh, Comics! podcast from Panels is all about Nimona – check it out here!
I’m a shark!! What did you read over the long weekend??
