COMICS: What I’m Currently Reading

09_22_2015_15I haven’t blogged about this much, but I read a lot of comics. We obviously don’t have a comic shop here, so I use the subscription service from Things From Another World Comics (tfaw.com). I made a list of the comics that I follow and once a month they send me all the new releases. It’s a pretty exciting day when they arrive šŸ™‚

The most recent bundle that arrived included the following:

Adventure Time #27
Adventure Time #28 (I was missing these two)
She-Hulk #11
Buffy the Vampire Slayer #18
Angel & Faith #18
Batwoman Annual #1
Rat Queens #11
Plutona #1
20th Century Tank Girl #1
20th Century Tank Girl #3

I’ve been following Buffy since it began its comics run, and it has never been better. Angel & Faith is also great, though in my opinion not as good as when it started.

Rat Queens is amazing, of course, though I was pretty bummed about the change in artist made recently.

Plutona has only just started out, but so far I’m intrigued. It has a very Stand By Me vibe, and hints at a unique take on the classic superhero tale.

I haven’t started the Tank Girl series yet as I needed to order #2 off eBay to complete the run, though I’m always excited for Tank Girl and the art looks great.

I was a HUGE fan of the Batwoman reboot with J.H. Williams III and W. Haden Blackman. As we all know by now, they both quit after DC refused to allow Batwoman marry her girlfriend in the series. After that the series took a major nosedive for me; the new art is no comparison to Williams’ illustrations, and the story line abruptly came to a halt when the team left, not offering any closure whatsoever on the incredible story that had been unfolding. We were chucked into a new story with new artists and it was very jarring. I have continued to collect the issues, but have a backlog to read in order to get caught up.

She Hulk I’m pretty excited about, though I’m missing issue #2 so I haven’t read the series yet. Hopefully I’ll get it in the near future and read the issues and like them haha.

I’m also a huge fan of Bitch Planet, Saga, and the MS Marvel reboot with Kamala. Bob’s Burgers is adorable and The Simpsons and Futurama are always entertaining. I’ve also just gotten on board with Jem and the Holograms and Sex Criminals, and am REALLY looking forward to Brian K. Vaughan’s Paper Girls out next month.

What comics do you have in your pull list?

  1. I love the Buffy comics! I’m behind,though, so it’s good to hear it is still going strong! I keep waiting for them to lose momentum and start sucking but it hasn’t happened yet!

  2. I’m so excited about this, because I’ve never been into comics before the past year or two, but now I really really am. Rat Queens is my current favorite, and I’m also reading/loving Saga, Lumberjanes, The Wicked + The Divine, Nimona, Shutter, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, and Wonder Woman. I’ve been meaning to read the Buffy comics for a while, and I’m planning to read Bitch Planet, She-Hulk, and Brian K. Vaughan’s Runaways as soon as they come in for me at the library. Also, I read The Essential Dykes to Watch Out For last year, and as I am in love with Alison Bechdel, I would really like to get hold of the entire comic! I love graphic memoirs/biographies, too, hers at the top of the list.
