Good Comics That You’re Not Reading!

Hi everyone! Been awhile since I’ve put anything on the ol’ blog site but honestly, none of the comics out there right now are really compelling me to write!. I’ve decided to go back through my personal stash and read some of my favorites – some you may not have heard of, and some you most definitely have heard of! In either case it’s important to not forget the glory of a good story, no matter how old (or far back into the closet) they are. So with out further ado, welcome to my new series: Good Comics That You’re Not Reading!

Marvel Female Badasses

We all know that there aren’t a lot of female comic book heroes that are worth paying attention to. It’s unfortunate but true. Some of the ones that get the majority of the spotlight aren’t always worth paying attention to, case in point, for the life of me I can’t understand Jubilee’s popularity if she’s not involved with Wolverine in some way shape or form. BUT, there are more than a few bright spots when it comes to female bad-assery (yes, I made that word up).
