Phillygirl reviews

While I'm still on break from RF, Ms. M, the newest fangirl to the scene,
has a few reviews below.

Send in your favorite redhead in comics to, subject: 53 to win the signed She-Hulk and Powers. It's fun to see your redhead fav's (and no Oracle or Batgirl yet!)

M: OK, I've actually finished reading a bunch of comics but haven't commented on them, so here are my reviews, comments etc on what I've been reading...

V for Vendetta - My friend Ramesses at the Fuselage recommended this one to me. Note, I haven't seen the movie yet. It was a dark tale about a Orwellian society and a vigilante trying to make people wake up and take action. I enjoyed this one, now I'm looking forward to seeing the movie.

Batgirl: Year One - This was a great story about how Barbara Gordon becomes Batgirl. I liked her story, a girl who wants to be a cop, an FBI agent someone to do good, but everyone tells oh you can't you're just a little girl. I also love the theme of girls kicking butt...Buffy, Girl Fight, anything of that nature and I'm there.

Wonder Woman #1 - This new title just started last week and I wanted to pick it up at the beginning. I was a little disappointed that most of the issue was about Wonder Woman's sister taking over as Wonder Woman, but I have a feeling we will be seeing Diana in issues to come.

[Watchmen] So this is supposed to be the end all and be all of comics, what did I think? I loved it. It's so much more than a graphic novel. It's a complex story about complex characters. I really enjoyed the flow of the book and the recurring themes. My favorite character would be Rorschach, a tragic figure who fights evil and only sees things in black and white.

The Middleman #1 through #4 - I loved it. It was funny and cute and I really just enjoyed this series. I'm going to lend it to my friend Redhead Fangirl and see what she thinks, but I think she'll love it too. I plan on picking up the next series, The Entering Dragon Conundrum, next time I'm at the comic book store.

Dead @ 17 - Another awesome book from Viper Comics. I will be picking up many more.

She-Hulk - My friend Redhead Fangirl lent this one to me. It's very cute. I never really knew much about She-hulk, but I enjoyed it. It's a bit cutesy compared to the other things I've been reading lately, but it was a nice break from some of the darker stuff.

Nope, Just screwing up the title and getting titles confused. That's supposed to be the Watchmen, as you probably already know.

The great thing is that you read The Watchmen, right? Now for the Saga of the Swamp Thing...

No offense taken, I'm new at this. BTW I bought about $65 worth of comics last night. I must be stopped. Haha. I'm trying to check out as many comic shops in my area that I can find.
