At last! Everyone's favorite no-nonsense powerhouse, America Chavez, gets her own series! Critically acclaimed young-adult novelist Gabby Rivera and all-star artist Joe Quinones unite to shine a solo spotlight on America's high-octane and hard-hitting adventures! She was a Young Avenger. She leads the Ultimates. And now she officially claims her place as the preeminent butt-kicker of the entire Marvel Universe! But what's a super-powered teenager to do when she's looking for a little personal fulfi llment? She goes to college! America just has to stop an interdimensional monster or two first and shut down a pesky alien cult that's begun worshipping her exploits before work can begin. Then she can get on with her first assignment: a field trip to the front lines of World War II - with Captain America as her wingman! COLLECTING: AMERICA 1-6

It started a little bit rushed and cheesy, but I think that might have been because there aren‘t very many chances for a Queer Hispanic Hero to not only be the lead but to be supported by so many strong women of color like her.

I‘m really enjoying this series as it slows and lets itself play out. will be putting this in as many libraries as I can haha!

#Comics with my #Legendary. I don‘t know if you can see, but the city is filled with Magma Men, leading my friend to say “This city is a hot mess!” 😂 #bookandboardgame #marvelunlimited #nook

Pro-Tip: do not read about 2 adorable super friends the day after your bff leaves for the Peace Corps

(But actually do, they‘re so freakin adorable)

Some lovely art and excellent characters, but the story has some severe pacing issues and is largely driven by some of my least favorite tropes. The first issue is particularly... troubled in the pacing department, coming off largely as rushed, jumbled nonsense. America is a great character, but this is not the most promising start to her solo title.

This isn't my favorite Marvel comic but it was pretty and the story was more unique. I hope they make more to see how it turns out!

Thorex What is your favorite current Marvel comic and why is it squirrel girl? 😆 2y

I had read issue #1 and gave it a 3. After reading the first 7 issues, I‘ll up that to 3.5-4. I am looking forward to reading more about these characters now that the exposition is out of the way.

I absolutely love America Chavez and have been waiting on this colletion for what feels like forever. It's so full of kicking butts and looking cool while doing it

I wanted to like this more, truly. The plot felt weird and a little disjointed? Like it took a while for things to connect in an understandable way. And I just didn't like America. Her personality rubbed me the wrong way. I've never liked the "punch first, ask questions later" personality. I appreciate what they're trying to do here though and just look at her! ?

Just finished. There's so much I loved about this book I'm not sure where to start... inter dimension time travel, Sotomayor University, cameos from many of my favorite Marvel heroines, that ripped senior citizen America teams up with... can't wait for the next one!

Two weeks' worth of comics acquisitions, plus the super cute Princess Leia Pop! I thrifted last night. #comics

The first two issues of AMERICA intrigued me and this one hooked me but good. Structurally, the series harkens back to an older comics mode, but content-wise it's gloriously modern and weird. Plus, it's TOTALLY woman-focused, with an emphasis on awesome WOC. (America hobnobs with Storm this issue.) Yay! #queerbooks

There are shades of EXCALIBUR here, too. Gotta love dimension-hopping rife with unexpected team-ups.

readordierachel Awesome! I'm looking forward to this one even more now. 3y
xicanti @ReadOrDieRachel I think it's shaping up to be something great. The letters pages are wonderful, too. They're filled with so much joy! 3y
xicanti @TobeyTheScavengerMonk this is awesome. 3y
