Redhead Fangirl

phillygirl out-fangirling me!

Phillygirl is outpacing me on comics! She has been to the LCBS about 3 times in 2 weeks.
Cheer her on as a new fangirl! Meanwhile, I'm reading Fun Home, Alison Bechdel [Dykes to watch out for]. It's textured, emotional, and literary-- the graphic novel equivalent of the edgy memoir.

OK, I'm just going to list some comics I've read recently and recommend to anyone that's into comics (or not).

Runaways - about a group of kids that find out that their parents are super villains and runaway and become super heroes.

Bite Club Vampire Crime Unit - more stories about the Del Toro Organized Crime Vampire Family

The Flash - Just started a new series this week, so far I like it

Sin City - Been reading a ton of them and love them all.

The Walking Dead - a post zombie attack story about a cop and his family and how they try to continue to survive with a group of other survivors

Astonishing X-Men - Joss Whedon's X-men, still trying to catch up on it, but it's up to issue 15 now, and I'm still trying to find issue #6

Dead @17 - Ordered some more from Viper Comics, waiting for them to arrive

Spike vs. Dracula - The story about how Spike and Dracula met up before. I'm not usually into books or comics based on a TV show or movie, but the story was pretty good and the art is fantastic.

She-Hulk - She's really growing on me. I've read Vol 1-3 of the trades so far.

Secrete Six - I don't know much about this title, it just started, but so far I like it.

What I haven't been into...

Green Lantern Corps

Silver Surfer Annihilation

I also read Ex Machina vol 1 and started vol 2. I'm enjoying that one so far, but then I took a little diversion and read vols 3 and 4 of Walking Dead, because I just love that series. I stopped at Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash Yesterday and picked up Runaways Vol 3, Vertigo's Swamp Thing Vol 1, Zombies, and Eternals. I read Zombies and it was pretty cool. It was the first issue, a little short after reading all these trades, but it was pretty cool. I'm reading Runaways now, then I'll get back to Ex Machina

You're almost caught up to the latest Walking Dead-- wait til you see how much harder it is when you read the floppy series and wait for the next issue!
It is fun to find a trade and gobble them up at once, with no waiting, like I did with Ex Machina.
You are an unstoppable fangirl! Tip the cup!

I know. I'm addicted to Walking Dead right now and can't imagine having to wait for more. You lent me some issues, but I'm missing #25 which is next in line. I'll see if I can pick it up somewhere if you don't have it.

At least Walking Dead is back on schedule now; the delays earlier in the year were killer.

OK, Finished Walking Dead. God I love that series. I want more! I also read American Virgin, really enjoying that one too. I'll start Ex Machina Vol 3 tonight, then I'll almost be through all the comics you lent me during the Great Comic Book Exchange. haha
