Great just great! Lots of action in this one between Hydra showing up and a ton of Kamala clones. Even Bruno has a girlfriend!?!?! As usual, illustrations are wonderful and loving the series all together.

This was recommended to me, other wise I would have passed. Sacrilege, I know…but I‘m just not a superhero person, and who‘s the biggest superhero of them all?

Booorriing…🥱

Anyway, here‘s Clark & Lois‘s son, Jon. “…landmark moment in comic book history, Jonathan Kent “…the son of Clark Kent, aka Superman, and Lois Lane — is coming out as bisexual.”

So there‘s a continuity change.

The #cloakanddaggerchristmas2022 was shared on IG today, for anyone who is interested. I did it last year and had fun. The prompts this year are pretty loose, and many do not require reading at all. More info at link below.

quietjenn I'm for sure in again. I really enjoyed it last year. 2w
batsy I'd love to do it again, too! @quietjenn @merelybookish do tag me if there's anything you'd like to read for the buddy read prompt 🙂 2w
merelybookish @quietjennn @batsy Oh yes, I'd be into a buddy read! And I'm very open, especially to classic age stuff. Also, any ideas on foil cover are welcome. 😄 2w

quietjenn @merelybookish @batsy would love to jump in on a buddy read! And I think that foil prompt will be the trickiest. Looking forward to their recs, but may just have to go browse the mystery section at the library. 2w
batsy @quietjenn @merelybookish I'm stumped re: foil covers, too. I'm guessing some of those pretty Agatha Christie hardbacks have foil lettering 🤔 Just an idea for a buddy read, only because I've seen people talking about it recently :) 2w
merelybookish @batsy @quietjenn That looks fun. And festive. 🎄 2w
quietjenn @merelybookish @batsy I am game for that one, I've enjoyed most of the British Crime Classics books that I've read and it's nice that it's seasonal. 2w
quietjenn @batsy @merelybookish good call on the Christies! I think even some of the less-pretty ones sometimes use foil for her name. I associate foil covers with either big budget books ore paperbacks from the 80s and realized that many of the books by one of my favorite authors from then - Elizabeth Peters/Barbara Michaels would qualify, so I think I may use one of the Amelia Peabody books that I haven't read for this prompt. 2w

JLA: Year One Deluxe Edition | Mark Waid, Brian Augustyn
post image

It‘s a Sunday afternoon comics, tea, & biscuits situation over here. I‘m having a lot of fun with JLA: YEAR ONE. It‘s a great look at what happens between the team‘s big adventures, and I get a huge kick out of spotting characters I know from other DC comics and/or the various TV shows. (In the main, I believe Marvel‘s got way better movies and DC‘s got way better TV shows. I can‘t say I‘ve watched ‘em ALL, but I‘ve watched a lot.)

The Refrigerator Monologues | Catherynne M. Valente
post image

Framing device: Canterbury tales.

Some women meet in Hell‘s Kitchen (the actual Hell‘s actual Kitchen). There‘s a refrigerator looming in the corner, and in the women‘s lives, there were once #superheroes.

One more thing our “heroines” have in common: their inferior #shortstories have turned them bitter.

Audiobook recommended, and (this time) +5 for Valente.

#NCBD and a terrible picture but oh well. Rainbow Rowell‘s She-Hulk run continues, murder & mayhem in Texas, Star Wars, more Star Wars, and oh…more Star Wars! Little Monsters (otherwise known as the last kids on Earth who also just happen to be vampires), Dark Knights of Steel (Batman, Superman, the whole gang in the Middle Ages—it actually works really well) and last but definitely not least a Skottie Young variant cover. So much good reading!

Raven | Marv Wolfman
post image
Pickpick

I read volumes 1-6 in a matter of a couple of hours. I loved the story and artwork. Raven has her usual sarcastic/gothic personality which I loved, and I liked her journey of fighting the evils around her. It was dark at times and I liked a lot of specific parts. Definitely a great small, short series to read for any fans of Raven or Teen Titans.

ShelleyBooksie Thank you for sharing. I didn't know this existed. @DinoMom 1mo
DinoMom @ShelleyBooksie need to get these!!! 1mo
BookBr Those look fantastic 1mo
