I picked up this trade up awhile ago while perusing Barnes and Noble. It has gotten quite a bit of attention, and as I trust Boom! And all of its properties, I grabbed a copy. Let me tell you something, Fangirls; Fence is full of babes.
Oh my goodness, Fangirls, I just fell in love with Goldie Vance. I’ve always been partial to Boom! Box comics, but this one truly takes the cake!
True confessions: I am not a Christmas person. Nope, Halloween is my holiday! It’s not that I don’t enjoy ‘the most wonderful time of the year’, there are genuinely some aspects of the holiday season that I love: homemade butter cookies we make with my Great Grandma’s antique cookie press, hot chocolate in front of a fire, decorating a big bushy pine tree, hanging out with my siblings… Making my dog wear adorable sweaters! (Cute dog+cute sweater is like my kryptonite!) But when they start putting Christmas items in stores before October has even begun and airing commercials for Christmas sales it kinda makes me wish I was a necromancer or mad evil scientist so I could unleash the zombie apocalypse the day after Thanksgiving on all the insane ‘Black Friday’ shoppers. I despise how commercial Christmas is, and hordes of holiday shoppers are practically zombies already… Yes, I know, it’s practically Grinchy! (Maybe if I put Santa hats on all the zombies?) If it was left up to me, I’d totally skip the nightmare of holiday shopping and I’d stay home enjoying a big cup of tequila spiked hot cocoa (add a pinch of cayenne for an adult version of Mexican hot chocolate!) and binge watch every Christmas horror movie ever made, starting with that perennial favorite, “Silent Night, Deadly Night.”
Hey Fangirls! Last time we talked about Catwoman she was escaping from creepy dollhouses and banging the Bat. But now, things are different. This trade starts with some not so nice blasts from Selina’s past, and an unforgettable game of chess.
Alright Fangirls, I’ve gotta tell you, Batgirl is not doing it for me. I prefer the sass and authority of other female characters. I really understand that she’s going through rough stuff; it’s hard to get back on the horse when you’ve been put in a wheel chair from it. But I’m not her biggest fan, and that kind of bums me out. We’ll see where the issues after this trade get me.
Hey Fangirls! With another Monday comes another comic heroin, starting our week strong! This week I’ll be bringing you the New 52’s first trade of Batgirl, by Gail Simone, Ardian Syaf, and Vincente Cifuentes.
Hello Fangirls! I cannot find the 20th issue of Suicide Squad anywhere, so while I look for it (and order it), we’ll be changing gears a bit. Instead of just following the lovely Ms. Quinn, we’ll be spending Monday mornings admiring many different powerful and awesome female characters. So today we’ll go back to the beginning of the New 52 with the first trade paperback of Catwoman, by Judd Winick and Guillem March.
