Trying to get into graphic novels and comics more. Figured Ms.Marvel is a good one Bc I‘m trying for more feminist, women empowerment and diversity reads this year.

The third volume of Piskor's simplified and consolidated retelling of the X-Men's convoluted and lengthy history presented in a decidedly "indie" style is, yet again, far more fresh and entertaining than it has any right to be.

Also reading a little Star Wars Doctor Aphra today. My son is a big fan and likes to talk about the comics so I‘m reading them so we can do just that—there are definitely worse ways to spend the afternoon!

Vision | Tom King

Another great run by Tom King. So unusual for Marvel to do a story like this, but this deeper look into what it means to be human is so well done and thought out. Who knew a comic about a synthezoid and his desire to have a family, to be normal, could make one cry?

Nick Andros got beat up and ended up in jail. He woke up and is telling the cop what happen. I predict he is going to snitch on the guys who banged him up.

I love Squirrel Girl and I am particularly fond of Ryan North and his regular support for libraries and librarians!

This book was so enjoyable until the Civil War II tie in. It turned Captain Marvel and Medusa into such weird, facist fools, who have apparently never read any Sci-Fi. Then it had a faux “both sides, reach across the aisle” moment which didn‘t work, because one side of that aisle was so wrong. I recommend reading it and just pretending half the team was controlled by aliens for the last part.

Restarting this comic for my first read of 2020, and it was delightful. (The Durham reference was hilarious, especially if you know what that statue looks like.) I am nervous about the disability rep, but I trust Jeremy Whitley enough to pick up the next volume and see where it goes.

Eighteen-year-old Carol Danvers very much enjoys her first year at the US Air Force Academy in Colorado. She meets and becomes besties with Maria Rambeau. The End. (And also sexism.)

This YA novel is pretty flat. The characters are not fleshed out well; the story would have been more compelling if we knew more about Carol's family, past experiences, etc. How was high school for her? This felt like a first draft.
