Mockingbird's quickly become my second favourite Marvel character after Squirrel Girl
Now that I've FINALLY finished my speech bubble challenge posts for this one, I can review it! I really had a lot of fun with mockingbird and I can't wait to read volume 2. Did I hear that maybe that was in though? Did they cancel it?
I don't think it was meant that way, especially because these frames are from different issues, but I certainly felt a #throwback to the first frame when I got to the second!
I love a little historical #throwback with The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp! The funny thing is how it looks like they're going to use it as an instructive reference...you'd expect a little more from scientist-terrorists, wouldn't you? 😂
Let me direct your attention to this amazing article: http://www.elle.com/culture/career-politics/a15063942/ijeoma-oluo-women-and-rage...
Me reading last night next to poor Portia who just got spayed. I wanted to sleep right next to her, but it was my parents' room and already pretty crowded. 😆 This poor baby is feeling a little better today but she sure doesn't like these drugs. #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon
Moving onto Mockingbird Vol. 1! I'm going to tag this frame as #sassattack, but I also want to say--1 single pound?! I fluctuate by at least 2 lbs within a single day. I'm sure it's just the fucking spikes, lady. #speechbubblechallenge #letsgetgraphicweeklongmarathon
This was so much fun! I only dabble in superhero comics, but this was hands down the best one I've read so far. It beat out Matt Fraction's Hawkeye run as my favorite (funny because Hawkeye and Mockingbird were married, and he makes an appearance), which I thought was impossible. Funny, perfectly paced, and very, very clever. Bummed that this was canceled, so there is only one more volume for me to read 😢.
Alas, I went into this with high expectations due to glowing reviews & didn't end up swooning. Knowing nothing about the character, I found the puzzle box story confusing until it circled. But the last two issues were fun & made me reread issue 1. I do follow some marvel comics but I'm not steeped in Marvelverse lore so I'm sure many hidden asides flew past me. I will be reading vol 2 since it's already purchased. #mommyreads #comics #ebook
OMG! I loved this series for #Mockingbird! I am new to comics (thanks #comixology!) and I wanted a series where the females weren't sidekicks. This was perfect! Vol 1 (I Can Explain) is available via comixology unlimited - go check it out! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
There's an amazing sale on digital Marvel volumes happening on Amazon. I kind of hope it ends soon, because I've already spent WAY too much (this picture is only evidence of about half of what I bought - some #msmarvel and #deadpool didn't make it inside the parameters) and might not be able to stop myself from going back for more. #bargainbooks #Marvel #mockingbird #squirrelgirl #jessicajones #scarletwitch #blackpanther
I read it, I cried over it, I loved it. So upset that it was canceled and even more upset that comic fuckboys harassed the writer off the internet over one of the issues in the next trade 😒😒😒 (I'm late to the fury over all this but I was too pissed when it happened to say anything. I'm almost not really over it.) If u haven't gotten around to it, pick up this trade and support the writer and the series itself. Fuck Marvel and its fuckboy fans.
