I am so so behind on my comic reading. I took a night a while back to start to catch up, and I discovered something: A-Force has ended. Yes, the last three issues we’ll be discussing here are the final three issues for my favorite team. And they take place during the current Civil War run.
Fangirls, I first picked up giant days when it originally came out January 2015, read a couple issues, then didn’t pay it much attention. It’s a Boom! Box book, originally only going to be 6 issues long, but extended it after issue 3. It’s a wonderful comic, about three roomies in college, trying to function and figure things out.
Fangirls. This issue was more grim than I expected, even following Pizzazz’s car crash. And it focuses on Rio, the reporter and (possible) love interest for Jerrica. It turns out that Rio is the one who found Pizzazz at her crash site, and he’s at the hospital when Stormer gets there. It’s a rough issue not only because Pizzazz is in the hospital, but there’s some should bearing, and Rio’s job wants him to write things he’s not comfortable writing. But we’ll get to that.
Fangirls, I’m sure you’re as excited as I am for The Force Awakens; it looks like it’s going to be beyond amazing. I am extremely ready for it. And you know what gets me even more excited for it? A make-up crossover! Covergirl released a full line of Star Wars: The Force Awakens cosmetics, and as rad as all of it looks, I only went for the lipstick, because that’s what floats my boat the most (since I already have go-tos for eyeliner and mascara). So on a trip to Walmart with one of my friends, I saw and grabbed all six!
It’s finally happening, Fangirls. Just a few weeks ago, I talked about a campaign going on trying to get a woman to be put on the $20 dollar bill. Well, it’s not the $20, but the $10. Just this week, the Treasury announced some big ol’ news that we’ve all been waiting to hear for a long time. Read More »
The last few issues of this series have been building quite a bit, Fangirls, and have been just as intense on their own, too. However, now, things are seriously getting real. Issue #10 is delivering us some real climactic moments, all of which will finally conclude next issue. This issue really is the final build up, and I’m feeling the tension.
Fangirls, I hope you’ve been reading Captain Marvel because this issue celebrates a momentous occasion; the 100th solo issue of Captain Marvel, and the 10th issue of this run. It’s fantastic. To celebrate, the story is told in a way different than others, it’s told from the perspectives of her friends as they recount a run-in with Grace Valenitne (who totally hates Cap Marvel’s guts). They’re told through the letters that Carol is reading, thanks to Lila Cheney, and it’s quite a lovely way to spend a 100th issue.
