Recently, I have fallen completely head over heels for some new comic book series.
Here we go...
"Dinah Lance hits the road! After years as a soldier and vigilante, the LAST place Dinah saw herself is on stage...but she's quickly learning she'd die to protect the gang of misfits she's fallen into. And she just might have to-for some reason, the newly rechristened band, "Black Canary," seems to be a magnet for trouble...and Dinah's not gonna believe it when she finds out the reason why! Martial arts, super-spies, and rock 'n' roll combine, from Brenden Fletcher (BATGIRL) and Annie Wu (Hawkeye)!"
The art, the dialogue, Dinah's personality... I love it all! I'm new to Black Canary, except for the tidbits I've read in Batgirl. But I cannot recommend this series enough. It's beautiful and tough and just amazing.
DC Comics: Bombshells
"The ultra-popular statues from DC Collectibles come to life in their own ongoing comic book series! Learn the story behind this alternate reality where the Second World War is fought by super-powered women on the front lines and behind the scenes! It all begins with the stories of Batwoman, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl."
Based on the Bombshells statues, I knew I'd want to read this series. I love anything retro and it's a bunch of stories about some kickass ladies. So far, I'm loving these issues. They're gorgeous, the uniforms are amazing, and I love the stories.
"What's To Love: New York Times bestselling author Kate Leth (Bravest Warriors, Adventure Time: Seeing Red) and artist Matt Cummings (Adventure Time) create a new, original series that takes the magical girl story where it's never, ever been before. Combining a deep love of Sailor Moon with the tongue-in-cheek humor of Scott Pilgrim, Power Up is the story of the most unlikely people (and goldfish) taking on the roles of Magical Girl, whether they want it or not.
What It Is: It has been foretold that four noble warriors of incredible strength would be gifted with cosmic abilities at a moment of planetary alignment...which, yeah, something definitely went wrong here. Amie is a disaffected twentysomething with a lot of attitude, Kevin is a washed-up athlete way past his prime, Sandy's a mother of two teenagers, and Silas...is a goldfish. Just a normal goldfish. Are we sure we read that prophecy right?"
As soon as I heard about this series I knew I wanted to read it. There's such a great team behind it that I knew it couldn't go wrong. The first two issues have been very cool. I'm really enjoying it.
