Josie and the Pussycats #1

To be frank, Fangirls, before reading this comic I knew almost nothing about Josie and the Pussycats. I remember listening to a version of Sugar, Sugar on my Saturday Morning Cartoons CD when I was little, and I vaguely remember there being a movie several years back, but that’s it. But, being a lover of powerful ladies, when I saw the updated look of the Pussycats at the comic shop the other day, I couldn’t not pick it up.

Worn Stories by Emily Spivack

Fangirls, awhile back, when I visited Vermont, we went into a rather small bookshop. I have a difficult time not buying books when I’m surrounded by them, so I found one that was rather small, and nabbed it to travel with. Most of my bus ride was filled with naps and snacks, so reading took a bit of a back seat. But a couple weeks ago I took time out from stressing to finish up Worn Stories, and became incredibly grateful that I got it.

Orange is the New Black Season 3 Part 1

Orange-is-the-New-Black-Season-3-PosterBoy, oh, boy, Fangirls. I, like many crazed fans, have been waiting for what feels like an eternity for OITNB’s third season to grace Netflix. Our time has finally come. And it’s been worth the wait. Though I have already finished this season, I figured I would break it up into two halves so that we don’t get too worked up. This season certainly takes the crown for stirring up all things hot & bothered.

Beware, Fangirls! Some minor spoilers ahead! Read More »

Batgirl Issues 25 and 27 – 34

Fangirls, DC does some kitschy stuff. These issues are part of two of the kitschy things they did, awhile ago, and I’m not really impressed at all.  Heck, Future’s End is a HUGE monetary  gain that they’re making (Batgirl’s issue came out about three weeks ago, on the 10th) and I’ve bought into it.  I’ve got the lenticular Villain’s month covers from last year and all that dumb stuff, but I liked those.  These I did not.  The final three I did enjoy, and I feel like they finished out Gail Simone’s run rather well.

Batman: Joker’s Daughter

Hey Fangirls. I know awhile back I mentioned my dislike for the Joker’s Daughter, a character introduced in Catwoman and given her own Villain Comic. Her story for the comic itself was weird and lame, but her backstory (as Duela Dent) is interesting. Duela is a character who basically hopped from villain to villain, calling herself their daughters. She worked with Catwoman and Scarecrow, among others.
