Recently we were asked to take a look at the second installment of the Geek-Girl mini series published by Markosia. A comic about an awesome college student who gets magical powers and becomes a superhero, is totally up our alley and so we were super excited to take a look. Click below to check out a preview and find out more.
On one of my weekly trips to the comic shop, I noticed a copy of The Secret Loves of Geek Girls. A quick glance at the list of contributors and I knew I had to bring it home. Click below for more.
Ok, so it’s not a new release. In fact I have no idea why it has taken me so long to pick up The Fangirl’s Guide To The Galaxy, and for that I am slightly ashamed. I knew of the book’s release way back in 2015, and have been a fan of Sam Maggs since she was an editor for The Mary Sue. But whatever the reason, be it time, money, laziness I hadn’t picked up a copy for myself til this year’s at New York Comic Con. Click below to see my thoughts.
When you read a title like ‘Bitch Planet’ you should know right off the bat that something is going to sneak up and punch you in the face. What punches you in the face in this issue? I’m about to spoil you a twinge to answer that question.
On the second page of this issue we are greeted by fully naked women in suspended animation on their trip to the ‘Auxiliary Compliance Outpost’ known as ‘Bitch Planet’ to the layman. As we dive further in, we realize that we are all currently living on Bitch Planet. The social, racial and sexiest discrimination may be subtle in our real world, but on this prison planet Kelly Sue DeConnick has created, she has slapped us across the face with them. In an exceptional way that, I think, may make some people wake up and take notice.
I won’t spoil you further, I will just urge you to read the backmatter essay written by Danielle Henderson that follows the issue. Comics like this are the ones that create the ripples that become the waves of change.
