July 31, 2017 • Cee • Monthly Recap

july

July hasn’t been that great of a month. At work, you can feel it in the air that people just want to quit. (Which I’m sad about but they gotta do what makes them happy.) In my personal life, I’m super stressed about by my little sister (she’s a big spender), goddamn pests that strikes fear in my heart, and my five year old iPod touch broke. :((

And although it’s been kind of awful, not awful things include EVERYTHING COMIC RELATED!!

WHAT’S UP?

I FINALLY SAW WONDER WOMAN.

It might’ve taken me a month and a half to watch it, but watch it I did. And it’s just as excellent as everybody says it is. It is, by no means, the best superhero movie ever but it’s certainly the best recent DC superhero movie. Diana was everything!!!!!! I love how she wanted to just fight for the people and defeat Ares. Oh my god, I was so attracted to Robin Wright and David Thewlis. (IDK why but I could not stop hearteying when I saw them.) Also, I can see why people were fangirling about Chris Pine. (This is actually the first movie that made me see why people find him attractive.) I think the only thing I didn’t like was the push of romance. I know Diana and Steve Trevor have a thing overall, but I was not about that. Overall, I loved it.

Everything dealing with Monstress was a saga with many happy endings.

Unnecessary double negative. I knew I couldn’t miss the Monstress Vol. 2 event because 1. I needed to tell Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda how much I love Monstress (again) and 2. my big sister wanted me to go because she loves Monstress and the creators. Initially, things didn’t look like I could make it because of work, but I made it work!

Marjorie and Sana were only signing, and ooh wheeee, the line for the signing was lonnnnnnnnnggg. At the event, they were selling a print (didn’t get it because it was veryyyy expensive), Monstress washcloths, and little Monstress notebooks. I could not resist!!

Like I said last year, “MARJORIE AND SANA ARE FRICKIN’ AWESOME AND SWEET. If you have the opportunity to meet them, you should go!”

Irene Koh is the coolest ever.

Irene Koh is a fantastic artist and martial artist. She draws the new Legend of Korra comics, and damn, Korrasami. *HEARTEYES* SHE IS SUCH A BABE. I LOVE HER. Her art and this comic lives up to everybody’s expectations. At the event, she talked about how she got into comics, how she has always drawn comics when she was younger (a lot of Naruto), was super transparent about how much she got paid for Legend of Korra graphic novel, talked about developing her style, and her interests. 

REST IN PEACE, SEYMOUR THE IPOD TOUCH.

I think in June, I accidentally dropped it screen first onto the cement, so it nearly shattered my screen, but it was still working. A couple of days ago at the end of July, my poor iPod touch fell again onto my bedroom floor, and RIP, it might light up but the touchscreen doesn’t work. I’m so sad about it because I played music from it!

  1. Freda says:

    I hope u get a new ipod soon. :-) Happy August!

  2. Uh, I *still* have not seen Wonder Woman. o.O I’m not big into DC? I’m more of a Marvel girl. But I will eventually watch it, because I admit the trailer looked pretty good. I’m so sad for you that your iPod touch broke :( Hopefully you can get a replacement? I know that for me, music = life.

    I am so so so stoked to read “Meddling Kids” – I need it now!
