Fangirls, I’d like to start this off by saying that I did not have high expectations for this book. I threw it onto my stack of books to buy at Barnes and Noble because I had a gift card, and thought “what the heck, why not?” That doesn’t mean this book is bad, it just isn’t the book for me.
Fangirls, back at the superbowl, I was not watching. I was as uninterested in the commercials as I was in the game. Until Facebook notified me that a new trailer was released for a new show coming to NBC called Heroes Reborn (that trailer is here). And suddenly my disinterest dissolved and I watched the trailer about five times in that one night. I was so excited. I had been a huge fan of the original series; even after many fans began to lose interest, I was still there every week to know what happened. And with this new series, I decided I needed to rewatch the original series. So here we go with the first episode.
Note: none of these Heroes posts will be spoiler free.
It’s been a bit since we’ve checked in with the new super chick kicking butt and taking names, Fangirls. When we last left Spiderwoman, she was getting really involved in a mysterious case of disappearances and terrible villain names. There was fishiness all around it. I had to dive back into this series to see what the heck was going to happen.
For a very long time, I had wistfully stared at information on Strong Female Protagonist. I saw pictures on Twitter and all over the Internet, but I never bought it. Then one day, I was in Barnes and Noble, and I happened upon it, and I’m glad that I did. I’ve read it four times now, and I simply can’t get enough.
Big Hero 6 is a phenomenal movie that came out this past Friday. It is the first full length animated Disney / Pixar / Marvel team up, and it’s based off of a comic.
From what I’ve heard, the comic isn’t all that great (racist and not very female friendly), but the movie is just lovely. Be wary, ahead there are some spoilers.
Hey Fangirls! Boston Comic Con was this past weekend, and we met a lovely lady named Kristen Gudsnuk who makes a comic called Henchgirl.
Go see this friggin movie, Fangirls. Like, right now.
Watch out for spoilers.Read More »
