Comics Wrap Up - No Matter What They Say

Graphic Novels

Adulthood is a Myth: A Sarah's Scribbles Collection (UK - US.) by Sarah C Andersen was released on Tuesday.

You can check out my review of this hilarious and wry look at modern life by clicking here.

This week, I read The Beauty Volume 1 (UK - USA), a graphic novel about an STI which makes people beautiful (I sh** you not.)

It was a compelling and interesting read - and what really drew me in was that cover...

The Beauty graphic novel

Look at it! It's all gothic and grim and beautiful at the same time! Argh!

I'll be reviewing The Beauty Volume 1 (UK - USA)next week.

Single Issues

This week I read Captain Marvel #1 (UK - US) from the 2012-2013 (In Pursuit of Flight) run.

I loved it. I uber loved it. I nearly squeed in public.

Captain Marvel #1 cover

We have utterly stunning artwork that looks like a carefully-crafted painting in every panel. We have Carol Danvers - an ex-Air Force pilot - deciding to ditch the 'Ms Marvel' moniker and adopt 'Captain Marvel.'

She then kicks butt and sexism in a single bound. :)

I love her. And in a week that saw International Women's Day (last Tuesday,) she was, for me, a true heroine - alongside her writer, Kelly Sue DeConnick.

Other Stuff

I've talked about the Ultimate Universe's spider-man, Miles Morales, before.

I was uber-disappointed this week to see Miles in a panel which dismisses both female fans and the importance of diverse characters in comics. Check out this post over on PANELS for more.

I love Brian Michael Bendis - I love his work; so I'm disappointed that this appeared in a Bendis title.
