This week we have hot releases of new comics to add to your comic book pull list. Some have known faces, like Darth Vader, but there are also pleasant surprises. I’ll start with Amazing Age. This is a mini-series of five issues. Three teens spend their days creating comic books, and then their dreams come true: their stories come to life! Now the issue is if they’ll survive in a world plenty of Superheroes and Super-villains.
We’re back with some comic books this week yet again! This time I want to talk about madness: Bitch Planet and Gwenpool. But before I go there, I’d like to start talking about Wonder Woman. The movie is here! Although I have to wait until tomorrow to enjoy it, I decided to start reading her comics.
So, this week’s central star is Wonder Woman. You can fetch Wonder Woman Rebirth (Annual 1) in your comic book store. Here you have short stories about our favorite Amazon. After this, let’s all have a beer and head to the cinema!
Yesterday I went to the MCM London Comic Con 2017, and I met Nichelle Nichols! How? I queued to get a picture with her. [SPOILER ALERT: I look hideous in the picture, but I don’t care because I finally met Uhura!] But, before showing you how awesome she looks in the picture and how horrible I look thanks to the crappy photographer, let’s talk about the Con.
Yesterday was super hot. I hoped to have a fresh time in the Con; however, the amount of people was staggering. So, our small group ended up sweating all the time. This year cosplayers were amazing again. I took a ton of pictures, but I’ll only share the best ones.
The new comic books this week come with some nostalgia. Do you know Battle Angel Alita? When I was a teen, I was hooked with this manga. The cyber-doctor Daisuke Ido finds a strange cyborg head in a damp. It belongs to a woman who has lost all her memories. He re-assembles her and names her Alita. She has a super powerful body: the Berserker. Afte a while, something happens: she can do amazing martial arts! Although she cannot remember anything, she decides to become a vigilante. She lives in a lawless place, so she’ll avenge the weak. But, she has a little bit of an identity crisis: is she still human? Does her new job make her humanity go away? How much cyborg is she?
This is a classic. However, I don’t recommend it for the very young. The manga’s pages are plenty of violence. The story is compelling, and Alita is as deadly as adorable.
Happy Geek Pride Day 2017! I almost missed the day because of work. But, worry not, I remembered just in time. So, what are we celebrating today? All Geekdom! That’s what we’re celebrating. So, how can you celebrate the day?
I plan to watch a geek movie tonight. But, if you have no time for that, you can always take some little time to pet your Funko Pops, or take a geeky selfie. Or, you can phone a friend of yours and plot your next visit to the cinema!
Or, if you prefer, use geeky fashion today. Whatever you feel good doing. Heck, even screaming out loud that you’re a geek will work! Because today is our day!
Now, before the day arrives at its end: do something geek, even if it’s small. You’ll feel proud.
Note: I chose a Mr.Wonderful pic this year. That heart is too cute, don’t you think? Mr.Wonderful’s style is very sweet.
So, what’s my feminist agenda, you may ask? It’s quite simple: there’s no agenda. It might come as a shock for some, but I don’t have anything in mind but geeking out loud. I have projects, yes, but agendas? The only agenda I have is my Italian one, and I write things like: I need to blog today.
I suppose that this had to happen at some point in my blogging life. If you’re all about uplifting women and promoting badass strong characters, I assume that some people take it the wrong way. But before we all freak-out, let’s take a look at what feminist is.
A feminist is a person who supports feminism. And what is feminism? Is it a disease? The word has had tons of bad marketing, so when you say it out loud some bells inside your head ring out loud. Nope, it’s not a disease, and it’s not Ragnarok. So, what is it?
This week we have some cool comic books that we can pick again. This week things get hot again since there are some interesting titles. And again, I’m left with a tough decision: do I start right away with the issues? Or do I wait for the trade?
While I meditate on the topic, I’ll start this week’s possible pic list with Luke Cage. Marvel’s Netflix series was fantastic. So, I do hope that the comic reflects that too. Cage is on a revenge spree. Cage goes to the funeral of Doctor Noah Burstein, the one who made of him an unbreakable Superhero. However, he soon discovers mysterious billionaires, gangs, and a woman with a huge secret.
Because things look pretty grim, Cage starts looking for answers. Maybe there’s far more to Doctor Noah Burstein’s death that meets the eye.
Wednesday is the day when you can find new cool comics in the comic book store. Yes, it’s the comic book day of the week, and it certainly comes with hot titles. I’ve decided to share with you some of the titles I’d love to follow. There are too many possibilities out there, and yet, you have to choose from them.
I’m going to start with Misfit City by Boom Box. Wilder lives in what seems to be a very boring place. The biggest thing that ever happened was the filming of a cult kid’s movie back in the 80s. But now, this sounds like ancient history. However, something happens (if not, we wouldn’t have a story). She and her friend find a centuries-old pirate map drawn by someone called Black Mary. Maybe there’s a treasure in that boring town!
Yesterday was a perfect day. Not only I got an incredible comic book haul thanks to the Free Comic Book Day, but also because I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy! The day began with a visit to the local comic book store. However, those wouldn’t be the first comics of the day. On Friday I got a fantastic parcel from Greece! It came with lots of goodies from the Greek Comic Con, including a signed copy of Mockingbird. (Thank you Ioanna!)
After coffee, I went to Dave’s, Brighton’s comic book store, and I got a bunch of comics. In total, I got 13 issues of goodness, including Superheroes and adult comics. Dave’s is a cave of wonders. I don’t want to go too often because I end up buying comics and Pops. I made a mistake: I checked if they had new Funko Pops and I got Cassidy, the funky vampire from the Preacher.
Happy Star Wars day! May the 4th be with you! I know, it’s a strange thing to wish this when you’re a Sith, but I couldn’t stop myself. This is a day to rejoice and take my coffee in one of my favorite Star Wars mugs.
To celebrate it I decided to take some pictures, and I ended up matching Pops with books. I know, my choice of a Padawan English-Japanese dictionary is a little bit odd. But, I love that dictionary. (It has two volumes!)
