- I bought signed copy of The Wicked + The Divine • Vol 3. – Commercial Suicide + had a wicked talk with the Valkyries at my LCBS.
My LCBS had signed copies of WICDIV and Phonogram by the creators, and of course I needed to get it! I grabbed myself volume three, and WORTH EVERY PENNY. I’M SO HAPPY THAT I GOT IT BECAUSE IT IS MY FAVORITTEEEEEEE. Every time I look at it, I shake in excitement. IT IS MY PRECIOUS.
First sentence: “It was my eleventh birthday.”
Imagine the earth opening up below you, and you fall through and land in the palm of a giant metal hand that’s glowing turquoise with weird symbols carved on it. That’s exactly what happens to Rose Franklin when she was little. Nobody knows what this giant metal hand is or where it came from, but it’s there in the ground, and it sets off the greatest sci-fi mystery that Sleeping Giants strives to uncover.
The wonderful folks at Random House asked me if I wanted to take part in a blog tour for Wonder Woman at Super Hero High, and you bet my answer was a YES. How can you say no to Wonder Woman? You absolutely cannot. Now, let me tell you all about the awesomeness of this cute book!
First sentence: “It was barely the third week of school, and already someone had been expelled.”
Every kid wants to go to a magical school like Hogwarts or Super Hero High. Wonder Woman wants to too.
In this Middle Grade book, Wonder Woman has big plans to be one of the best superheroes ever, and to be the best, she wants to go to a school that’ll help her become that and even more. If that means she has to leave Paradise Island, the only place she’s ever known, she’ll do it. With her mother’s blessings, she sets off on an adventure that’ll help her become a great superhero, make wonderful lifetime-lasting friendships, learn to deal with “mean” girls (who Wonder Woman probably doesn’t see as being mean on the account of her trusting nature), find out who’s been leaving threatening notes to her, and much more.
This week’s topic is “top
ten eight bookworm delights.” Just think: things a bookworm will squeal in delight over. When these bookish things I love happen, my heart soaaarrrrs. I just want to pump my hand in the arm and scream, “yesssssssss.”
This week’s topic is “top
First sentence: “Something dreadful has happened to Mr. Curtis.”
Guess who’s back! The Wells & Wong Detective Society are back at it again with a murder case that’s a little close to home.
At Fallingford (Daisy Wells’ home) for the holidays, Daisy and Hazel Wong find themselves surrounded by people (most who reside at the house or are guests) acting all sorts of suspicious with the arrival of Denis Curtis, a “friend” of Lady Hastings. What is wrong with all these adults? When one of guest falls ill from a poisoning, Daisy and Hazel realize the culprit is still in Fallingford, and it is up to them to get to the bottom of it.
I love comics and graphic novels, so what do I do with that love? Well, I turn it into a new feature!
From Panel to Panel is a new feature where I talk about the awesome (and perhaps not-so awesome) comic books and graphic novels I’ve read. Basically, this will be me pushing them onto your laps. You’re welcome.
TIME TO GET EXCITED, FOLKS. I may have missed March’s post, but I come bearing awesome comics I’m excited for (and you should too!) that were published in March and April!
You will see a Canary kicking ass and singing her heart out, fabulous DC ladies set during WWII, an old classic that’s been revamped, teenagers from the 1980s during an alien invasion, and much more!
Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!
|BLACK CANARY · VOL. 1 – KICKING AND SCREAMING|
Dinah Lance hits the road! After years as a soldier and vigilante, the last place Dinah saw herself is on stage … but she’s quickly learning she’d die to protect the gang of misfits she’s fallen into. And she just might have to—for some reason, the newly rechristened band Black Canary seems to be a magnet for trouble … and Dinah’s not gonna believe it when she finds out the reason why!
From the pages of BATGIRL, Martial arts, super-spies, and rock ‘n’ roll combine here in the superheroine’s solo series BLACK CANARY VOL. 1. Written by Brenden Fletcher (BATGIRL) and art by Annie Wu (HAWKEYE), this graphic novel collects BLACK CANARY #1-7. — DC Comics
Publication date: March 2, 2016 by DC Comics
Why I’m excited: BLACK CANARY, MY GIRL!
I’ve actually been following the issues, and it’s frickin’ amazing. My top reasons why you should read Black Canary are: it’s about a former crime-fighter who becomes lead singer of a band (music goodness!); there are awesome fight scenes (the paneling in this comic is insaneeeeee); the art and colors are so gorgeous (I love it so much); and there’s so much wonderful band-family goodness.
