Brand spankin’ New Year! But yet, it still doesn’t seem like 2017 will be a good year.
My January was mainly filled with hanging with newfound friends, making regretful decisions, stressing about work, and buying more comics than I should be.
This week’s topic is “top Here are the comics that are on my TBR!
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!
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.
From the Green Arrow Rebirth (which has my queen Black Canary) to the charming Han Solo written by the awesome Marjorie Liu, January has plentiful of comics I’m dying to get my hands on!
Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!
|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! Collects GREEN ARROW: REBIRTH #1 and GREEN ARROW #1-5. — DC Comics
Publication date: January 4, 2017 by DC Comics
Why I’m excited: Although 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.

My music in 2016 wasn’t as…plentiful like the previous years.
2015 was full of wonderful ladies, but 2016? I don’t even know how to define that year in music. I guess I can say it was just slow?
My 2016 was a mix of badassery ladies who make me want to slash tires and set things on fire, KPOP, soundtracks, some fave bands new releases, and old high school favorites that have me singing along.
Here are the albums I listened to. (It is in order of when I listened to them, and the links go to Spotify.)
|GALAVANT | SEASON 1 + SEASON 2|
Galavant is a comedy musical television show that aired on ABC. The music of the series is composed by Alan Menken and Christopher Lennertz.
Galavant is frickin’ amazing. I didn’t know I would fall head over heels in love with this musical comedy, but I did. It’s not the cliche fairytale story with a dashing knight, a princess, and an evil king. It’s so much more than that. It’s funny, and it’s not afraid to poke fun at tired old tropes that you usually see in this genre. The music is so frickin’ catchy, and it never fails to put a smile on my face.
First sentence: “Jackie Stone loved her father.”
Did I screech in excitement when I heard Batgirl was getting her own Super Hero High book? You bet I did. Did I refrain from scaring the Random House publicist when she asked if I want to take part in the Batgirl at Super Hero High blog tour? Yup.
First sentence: “Oh, sure, there were injuries.”
Na na na na na na na na Batgirl! Batgirl!
In this third book in the Super Hero High series, Batgirl has decided that she doesn’t want to sit on the sidelines anymore while her friends are out there saving people. She wants to attend Super Hero High, but her dad, Commissioner Gordon, absolutely refuses to allow her. With her superior reasoning skills, she manages to convince her reluctant dad to let her attend the school (but with a few set of rules she must abide by). In Batgirl at Super Hero High, Batgirl has to deal with her desire to save people like her dad, a worried dad who doesn’t want Batgirl to get hurt, stress from all the different work loads she’s juggling, a reality show about technologically savvy people, and much more!
