Comics

Hello! Its a lovely stormy Tuesday here in Kansas. And I am not going to lie I 100% forgot about the post yesterday. I was super excited about going to see Captain Marvel, which was amazing. 🙂

So, let’s talk comics! I have only read 1 Marvel comic, Ms. Marvel Vol 1. I have Vol 2 I am going to pick up after I finish my current book. I did not realize there were already like 10 of these and I really need to get on that!

Other comics/graphic novels I’ve read- which there aren’t that many different ones- I Hate Fairyland, Rick and Morty, Fables, Monstress, Saga, and Paper Girls. I also just bought/read the very first volume in the Steel Prince Series by VE Schwab.

I Hate Fairyland consists of 4 volumes -it is complete- all about Gertrude who gets stuck in Fairyland for 30 years! It has lots of cursing and is definitely a Mature read.

Cover for I Hate Fairyland Issue 9.

Rick and Morty are just volumes that spin off of the TV show, pretty self explanatory.

Fables is great! I wasn’t sure how I felt about it at first but I am 7 books in and still have like 7(or more) to go. But, it is just about how the Fables live in NYC, in their own little neighborhood, and they also have a farm for fables that cannot change to look like humans. It is also pretty mature, there is nudity and cursing.

Fables Book 1

Monstress … I’m not even really sure what is going on in this series. There is a girl, a cat thing, and a little fox girl… The main girl(not fox girl) has some sort of extra life-form inside of her that can/will destroy her… the cat-thing has like 6 tails, and fox girl is just the cutest little like 10 year old with the ears and tail of a fox. Obviously there is more than that, but… I should really re-read it because I really only have the inkling of a clue as to what is going on in this world.

Monstress Issue 14

Saga and Paper Girls both are written by Brian K Vaughn. Saga was the very first comic I picked up and I read the entire first book in less than an hour! I was super engrossed. Paper Girls … not as good but it isn’t even close to the same type of story Saga is. I would recommend them both. Don’t even read reviews because everything is a spoiler.

Today is Tuesday September 4th. And I had a coupon from Labor Day! YAY! Love coupons. So, of course I go into the shop intending to get the one book that the coupon is good for – one, in stock book – and come out with three. 😀

Honestly, it wasn’t that bad. I have wanted Children of Blood and Bone since it came out. And I follow the Monstress series but I did not realize the next one had come out. So those two are ones I knew about but I had heard nothing of Ink. It sounds… odd. Different. There’s nothing wrong with that, actually that gives it extra points in my book. It’s about… a world where everything you do, every decision you make, is inked on your skin. I am super into tattoos but I don’t think I would want every decision I made to be on my skin – permanently! So, stay tuned for when I read that! I am definitely going to soon.
