So I was loving this series and then I saw this. For backstory she‘s saying that Hawkeye divorced her because she cheated on him with this dude in the past.
Literally everything else about this comic is absolutely wonderful but the implication here I just find super troubling. Especially since this is a feminist comic.
I‘m kinda heartbroken
The first 3 comics in this book are DELIGHTFUL. Like they end so wonderfully and the story is fun, witty, and interesting. The art work is A+. And then they tacked on 2 random dude comics at the end (bc they scrapped the Mockingbird series at #8) that I legit cannot force myself to finish. Such breasts and shitty storytelling.
Anyways the actual Mockingbird comics are totally worth your time!
I loved this graphic novel, and I‘m so glad my fave author got a chance in this type of story telling. It was absolutely crazy and sarcastic and amazing. I‘m sad that Marvel did a revamp and this run was cut short. I feel like it didn‘t quite get a chance to take wing. Still, it was a fun ride.
Oof...what a fall from grace after the first volume! This would have been a so-so just because the story kinda sucked, but this little blurb tipped it over: it's not okay to imply that strong women who make their own decisions can't be or are even less likely to be raped. If women in the military can be raped, so can fucking Mockingbird. She wasn't, fine, but this ISN'T the reason why.
PDX carpet?? In Mockingbird?!! 😄😄😄 #24in48
I‘m finishing this one outside, because it‘s 60 degrees outside right now! ❤️❤️❤️ The trees are still waiting for Spring, of course, but they‘re so beautiful.
I re-read volume 1 and read volume 2 on my way home from vacation yesterday. I had forgotten how much I liked the humor in the first one. I didn't like the second quite as much but it was still good.
Chelsea Cain's run on MOCKINGBIRD was phenomenal, among Marvel's best in recent years. This collection, the second and final of her too-brief tenure, however, is a bad reflection of the book's strengths, offering just 3 Cain issues for $15.99. It also includes reprints of Brian Michael Bendis' late-00s revival with the character that features none of Cain's wit and little of Kate Niemczyk's excellent visual storytelling. A great book ill-treated.
Not sure what her actual agenda was in this one but it was fun to read. The title goes better with the previous volume, but I understand what it was meant to be. Its a short volume, only having three issues and then some filler. It also ended the run, which is a bit unfortunate. Alll the same, it was a series focused on white feminism and wasn't at all intersectional, so not a total loss. Fun to read when you're not counting on it as political.
Feminist crafts & nasty woman cocktails while blasting Lemonade. 💪🏼🍹
In case you were wondering how D.C. feels about this ordeal, our trip to Michaels was crowded because everyone there was buying protest supplies for the #WomensMarch 😂 We had to wait to get to the posterboard aisle. #Resist
A+. I am so sad that this ended, but hopefully we will see more from Cain and Niemczyk. The art. The story. The characters. All fantastic and I'm so glad the Mockingbird had the chance to prove just what a great leading lady she could be. (Plus I love Clint and Hunter.)
