May, don’t go! I loved you so much!
I can’t believe May is over! Where did the month go? Can we go back to the beginning of the month or to my birthday please?
In May —
- I celebrated my birthday!
MY BFF WAS FINALLY PRESENT IN THE UNITED STATES FOR MY BIRTHDAY! After spending yeaaarrrs away from each other, we got to celebrate my birthday together and what a joy it was! I hung out with a friend earlier in the day for fish tacos + comic hunting, and then I met up with my BFF for Korean BBQ + book hunting. A+++++ outings.

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 May, let me tell you your arms will be full of some many awesome comics. Those comics are the wonderful Kate Bishop in her own solo run as the great Hawkeye, Speedsters like Barry Allen, new superhero team trying to save the world, and plenty of awesome comics I need you to put in your TBR list!
Get your shopping carts loaded with all these comics!
|CHAMPIONS • VOL. 1: CHANGE THE WORLD|
One of the great team names in Marvel history returns, in incredible new fashion! During the fallout of Civil War II, Ms. Marvel, Nova and Spider-Man quit the Avengers and strike out on their own! With Viv Vision and the Totally Awesome Hulk by their side, these young heroes are determined to change the world their own way – and they’re only the beginning! It starts as an idea. It becomes an ideal. But what happens when it turns into a movement – one so big even the Hulk can’t stop it? And will one of the greatest X-Men of all forge a new future by their side? Welcome to the Champions, Cyclops! Unfortunately, not all of your new would-be teammates are glad to see you!
Story by Mark Waid and art by Humberto Ramos, Champions Vol. 1 collects issues #1-6.— Marvel Comics

Why I’m excited: Look at these kids. These young heroes are gonna change the world, and for the better. This is a team I’d want to read every single day.

When the Five Worlds are on the brink of extinction, what are three young kids—a clumsy sand dancer, a kid from the poorest slums, and an all-star athlete—gonna do? Well, just about anything to save their beloved homes.
First sentence: “I know I probably don’t have to hand this diary in, but if anyone asks for it, I would like it to be wonderfully comprehensive.”
Meet two polar opposites:
- Charlie Dean: Lives and breathes fashion, frequently incorporates French words into her vocabulary (which she learned from Google Translate), is a loner because of the way she dresses, has an addict of a father who’s trying to stay sober.
- John-Thomas Smith: Loves to work with metal, doesn’t care about clothing and looks down at this art form, has two friends—Barbra and Booker—who don’t seem to want to grow up.
What do these two have in common? A desire to, one day, attend Green Pastures Academy of Art and Applied Design, a prestigious art school that will set them up for life. These two will compete in a fashion competition to win the coveted scholarship, and learn about what they’re capable of doing if they set their minds to it.
What is this glorious day? May 18th!
Why? Because it’s my birthday! *pops the confetti and dances around*
(Yes, I’m copying what I said last year because it’s always applicable.)
Just like last year, I’ll keep this short and sweet because I did not prepare like I said I would a year ago. My family doesn’t really celebrate birthdays, so May 18th has always been a chill day (aside from delicious cake). This day will be no different. I’ll be doing my favorites: eating delicious tacos + Korean food, and going comic shopping.
On this fantastic May 18th, I hope you do the same—treating yourself to delicious food and all your favorite things in the world. Make the most of your May 18th for me! I demand you treat yo self!
I hope you all have a fabulous May 18th!
