The New Avengers Illuminati | Brian Michael Bendis, Brian Reed

Just a quick read. I haven't been in the greatest reading mood lately. So I thought a graphic novel would help. I rated this book a 3 out of 5 stars.

Here‘s Hazel making her Litsy debut! It looks like she and Hera got caught plotting something.

This is a fun James Bond-style spoof about a hapless guy who gets caught up in the world of supervillains when his estranged Uncle, a supervillain himself, suddenly dies. Lots of fun set-pieces, sentient creatures and clever nods to spy thrillers.

4/5

Charlie's billionaire uncle has left him with an inheritance that turns out not to be a parking garage empire, but instead a villain operation complete with a volcanic island as the headquarters. Charlie's thrown into the deep end dealing with his new employees and the other villains of the world.

This was a super fun read. I especially loved the hyper-intelligent cats and dolphins.

AmyG Yes! It was so fun. 2d
KathyWheeler I loved the cats and dolphins! 2d
BekaReid Definitely a fun read! I thoroughly enjoy Scalzi. 2h

Taylor & Redondo's Nightwing run is a balm for anyone weary of overly grimdark, nihilistic story-telling: heroes saving lives and helping their communities. This story is about the nature of your heart--literally and metaphorically. Plus, Dick & Babs are adorable.

Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds | Gerard Way, Mikey Way
post image

Book 2 of #2024Halfway is Doom Patrol. My introduction to the wild & thought provoking world of DP was via Gerard Way's terrific 3 vol. run. The exact same month I also read Grant Morrison's 6 vol. run. Although I found Morrison to be a bit too cerebral & experimental at times, I appreciated him pushing the boundaries of the form. IMO Way hit all of the right notes in his volumes & really illuminated what makes Doom Patrol so great.

vivastory BONUS: Hailey Piper's Benny Rose Cannibal King is one that I have vey recently read & posted about. At 160 pages, it's just a bit above what I would consider novella length but it is def one that you can read in a sitting or two. For those who like seasonal horror, I would recommend this as it takes place on Halloween. 6d

A Once Crowded Sky: A Novel | Tom King, Tom Fowler
post image

If you're a huge comic book fan you probably know who Tom King is, but back in 2012 he also wrote what is, arguably, the best comic book novel of all time. He was doing a signing at Motor City Comic Con today, so I snuck away from the booth to meet him. He was thrilled that I had an ARC of the book and was utterly delightful. I very rarely wait in lines to meet celebs at shows, but this was a good exception.

TieDyeDude Very cool! I haven't heard of this book, but it sounds interesting. 6d

Batman Begins | Dennis O'Neill

As some of you have learned about me, I am a “little“ obsessed with Batman...😂, I know, more like a little, overly, obsessed with Batman.

And this remains my absolute favorite story about my favorite superhero.

The first “reread“ of a book without a single, pretty illustration 🤔, and I loved just the same as I had the first time reading this book. 👇

AnnCrystal Some of this feels “reported,“ yet it seemed to fit the flow of the story.

An origin story that perfectly wraps the beginnings of Bruce Wayne's character and his making of Batman.

Wish I had kept a book journal when I was younger...read how my younger self felt about some of my gold star reads. I've only devotedly began one since becoming a Litten 😉👍.

This one keeps all of the Gold 🤩 Stars I originally gave. Excellent!

TieDyeDude I'm surprised superhero prose novels aren't more of a thing. When I was younger, I remember reading the novelization of No Man's Land and I really enjoying The Stone King JLA novel. 6d
AnnCrystal 👏☺️👍.@TieDyeDude I always wondered the same thing. Seems strange when it could be an interesting way to intrigue young readers into reading more complex stories...📚😉👍. 6d

An excellent book that gives some of the biggest minority heroes a chance to tell their stories. They did a great job of choosing characters that casual fans would be aware of, but not particularly knowledgeable of, and providing some alternate views of major DC and world events. More of an illustrated novel, since it is VERY wordy, and the art does not move the story forward at all, but once you get starting, it's hard to put down

Injustice 2 Vol. 6 | Tom Taylor

Pickpick

The spontaneous marathon is complete! Just got a good momentum, and realized I really wanted to know how everything ended. The answer is: the only way it could. After everything that's happened, all the loss and mistakes, tying off some loose ends means acknowledging things won't ever be the way they were. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? Redemption and reconciliation are very much still question marks for a number of characters but the idea that peace, getting people to the table to talk is hard thing, really resonates right now, maybe its one of those perennial truths that we keep having to learn the painful way. 3w
Robotswithpersonality 3/3 Blue Beetle and Booster; Harley with her olive branch (tree); the moment with Bruce and Clark; Lobo's Lantern 'creations'; there were a number of memorable highlights in this final volume. But boy oh boy am I glad it's not the main continuity! I think it's time for a cheerful Superman comic. 😅 3w
