January Reading Goals

Friends and Fangirls, we’ve all sorted our main goals for 2019, but we need to consider the truly important goals: reading goals. I read a lot in 2018, and it’s very important to me that I read just as much in the new year.

Hawkeye 1: The adorable archer takes aim- ON DANGER

First of all, great job on that byline, Marvel. It’s really something. Second of all? Holy CRAP Kate Bishop has her own Hawkeye comic! After reading Fraction’s Hawkeye, I fell in love. I loved the way Clint was in that book; he’s snarky, doesn’t want to do anything, and is hyper aware of his lack of powers (shout out to whoever decided a beat up head was needed to exchange with the regular one on the action figure). Clint is a grump, and there are two (main) things that keep him moving through his days; Lucky (aka Pizza Dog) and Kate Bishop (aka the other Hawkeye). My friend Cassandra forced me to read Fraction’s Hawkeye because Kate and I have a lot in common, and she recognized that. And we actually bought Kate’s first issue the same day (which is incredible because we talked about it months ago and she lives on the other side of the country). But let’s get down to it.

Jem and the Holograms Issue 10

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.

Jem and the Holograms Issue 9

Consider that mischief managed, Fangirls. Last issue I was worried that things were getting too crazy in the world of the Holograms, but that didn’t prepare me for reading this issue. The Misfits are at the Benton house for their Halloween party, and they’ve just missed the music video release. That instills some rage in dear Pizazz’s heart, so she makes a new plan; tail Jem until they can get some alone time.
