Comic Books

This past month I was introduced to two comic book series. I'm so in love with them and I need to share!

Alex + Ada
"From JONATHAN LUNA (GIRLS, THE SWORD, Spider-Woman, ULTRA) and SARAH VAUGHN (Sparkshooter) comes ALEX + ADA, a sci-fi drama set in the near future. The last thing in the world Alex wanted was an X5, the latest in realistic androids. But when Ada is dropped into his life, will Alex keep her? This will be JONATHAN LUNA's return to comics after three years off since the end of THE SWORD!"
This comic book series was recommended to me numerous times by a friend and it's like it kept following me around because I kept hearing about it. So I finally got my hands on volume 1 and, oh man, I couldn't stop reading. I read through the first volume in one sitting (which I typically don't do) and I had to get Vol. 2 and 3 right away to finish off the series. It's amazing and heartbreaking and real and I cannot suggest this title enough!


Zodiac Starforce
"An elite group of teenage girls with magical powers have sworn to protect our planet against dark creatures . . . as long as they can get out of class! These high-school girls aren't just combating math tests. They're also battling monsters! But when an evil force infects leader Emma, she must work with her team to save herself and the world from the evil Diana and her mean- girl minions! * A brand-new creator-owned series from Kevin Panetta (Bravest Warriors) and Paulina Ganucheau (TMNT: New Animated Adventures, Bravest Warriors). * For fans of Sailor Moon, Buffy, and Lumberjanes! Zodiac Starforce is everything I want in a modern magical girl story: friendship, diversity, sweet battles and enviable costumes. Kevin and Paulina have crafted a both stunningly beautiful and heartfelt adventure series I honestly can't wait to read."
As soon as I heard about this title I knew I wanted to read it. The description alone sold me. Only the first two issues are out currently but so far they're great! I love the art and the story is super fun. 


Have you come across any amazing comic book titles lately? There's a couple of new titles I plan on checking out soon. Saga is sitting at the top of my list!

  1. I'm really looking forward to tracking down Alex + Ada and I'm waiting for trades for Zodiac Starforce, but man is it hard to wait. It looks so good.
