The internship program at the Time Museum is a little unusual. For one thing, kids as young as twelve get to apply for these prestigious summer jobs. And as for the applicant pool . . . well, these kids come from all over history.

When Delia finds herself working at the Time Museum, the last thing she expects is to be sent on time-traveling adventures with an unlikely gang of kids from across the eons. From a cave-boy to a girl from the distant future, Delia’s team represents nearly all of human history! They’re going to need all their skills for the challenge they’ve got in store . . . defending the Time Museum itself!

If you found a secret museum containing all types of artifacts and people that are from different time periods, you would visit that place in a heartbeat, right? The Time Museum is that place that will show you all the wonders in the world you’re missing out on. This place is heaven on Earth for a girl like Delia Bean.

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.

In February, the comics I’m gravitating towards have heroines kicking ass in the form of Wonder Woman and a princess, a glamorous green haired fashion blogger, and the awesome Jughead Jones. My hands are itching for these comics in my life.

Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!

WONDER WOMAN • VOL. 1: THE LIES

Heroic. Iconic. Unstoppable. Armed with her Lasso of Truth and imbued with the power of the gods themselves, Princess Diana of Themyscira-known to the world as Wonder Woman-is one of the greatest superheroes in history.

But who is she…really? Not even Wonder Woman herself knows for sure. Diana’s links to both the Amazons and the Gods of Olympus have been severed. Her memories are a tangle of contradictions that even her lie-detecting lasso cannot untangle.

To solve the riddle of her origin, she must embark on her greatest quest of all: finding a way back to her vanished home. To get there, she must team up with her greatest enemy, the feral beast-woman, Cheetah. Will this unlikely alliance shine the light of truth on Diana’s darkest secrets, or bury them-and her-forever?

Find out in WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1: THE LIES-exploding from the blockbuster DC Rebirth event! Legendary Wonder Woman writer Greg Rucka (BATWOMAN: ELEGY) makes his triumphant return to the character for the first time in years and joins renowned fantasy artist Liam Sharp (2000 AD) for one of the most momentous stories in Diana’s history! Collects WONDER WOMAN #1, #3, #5, #7, #9, #11 and the WONDER WOMAN: REBIRTH one-shot. — DC Comics

Why I’m excitedI FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN WAITING FOREVER FOR THIS WONDER WOMAN COMIC TO BE OUT! After my disappointment with the series written by Brian Azzarello, I wanted a Wonder Woman series that will make me fall in love with it. This Wonder Woman Rebirth series by Greg Rucka has gotten a ton of raves (especially from the Valkyries at my local comic book store), and you know what? I’m so frickin’ excited.

myreview

I received this book for free from Macmillan for review consideration. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

First sentence: “Somewhere outside Sydney, Australia…”

“I need more Iko” is the first thing everybody I know says after reading The Lunar Chronicles. And why shouldn’t they? This lovable android with her upbeat personality and love for dresses and shoes is an absolute delight. Readers cannot help but fall in love with her. Readers have been waiting years for her own story, and it’s finally here!

This week’s topic is “top ten nine comics on my TBR.” Bless this Top Ten topic because comics! I could write essays about my love for comics and talk about all my favorite ones, but I’m not gonna do it here. Instead, I want to talk about the comics that are my TBR—ones that I should be reading right now but I just haven’t because of mood or work. There’s so many comics, but these are the ones that are an absolute must because they’re the top comics or I have them on my shelf.

Here are the comics that are on my TBR!

GREEN ARROW • VOL. 1 THE DEATH & LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN

By day he’s Oliver Queen, playboy socialite, CEO of Queen Industries and philanthropic do-gooder. But at night he patrols the streets of Seattle, where he champions the oppressed as a true social justice warrior. He is Green Arrow.

But how can you fight the man when you are the man? That’s the question left with Oliver after an electric, love-at-first-sight encounter with Black Canary, the superhero rock star who challenges everything he thought he knew about protecting the innocent. As if that weren’t enough, a sinister organization with ties to his nearest and dearest prepares to tear down Oliver’s financial empire, destroy his family’s legacy and end his life.

Without fortune or friends, can Green Arrow defeat this unholy alliance of traitors? Or has death finally caught up with Oliver Queen?

Discover the shocking answers in GREEN ARROW VOL. 1: THE DEATH AND LIFE OF OLIVER QUEEN, the surprise hit series from writer BENJAMIN PERCY (TEEN TITANS), gorgeously illustrated by OTTO SCHMIDT (Korvac Saga) and JUAN FERREYRA (NEW SUICIDE SQUAD) and exploding from the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event!

Why I’m excitedAlthough I am not the biggest fan of Green Arrow/Oliver Queen, I can’t help but want to read this comic because of Black Canary. Any comics with Black Canary, I immediately need it in my life. (I love that her past as a superhero rock star is carried into this comic.) Also, I heard excellent things about the writing, and that it’s best of the Rebirth stories.
