Welcome back to the second installment of my willgoonuntilyousavethesebooks part series where I let you know about some books that are coming out today that are in need of your dollar. Either they have low sales and deserve much more, or you can help progress the landscape of comics by putting your dollar behind it.
Now you might be thinking “Hey this book doesn’t need my help, it’s one of Marvel’s biggest series right now!” And you’d be right… if you flashed back to issue 1. Marvel wanted this to be one of their biggest series, they promoted the hell out of it. But they also put Joe Mad on the title and that means it took him nine months to put out three issues, and because of that I’ve seen the audience for the book at my store drop significantly with each issue because hey, you need to strike while the iron is hot and this book has cooled down.
So why does this book deserve your money? Well I’m always talking about how comics need more female protagonist and POC, and this book has not only a female protagonist (Medusa) but also all but one or two of the new Inhumans are POC, it’s like Marvel is trying to use the Terrigen mist to create a lot of new diverse super heroes all at once and hey, good for them. So if you want to support women and POC in books, this is a great one to get behind.
Ms Marvel #2 4th Printing
People were making a big deal out of the 6th printing of issue one… because it was a big deal, that’s pretty awesome. But you know what’s an even bigger deal than issue one hitting a 6th printing? Issue two hitting a 6th printing. If you still haven’t gotten into this book then go out and pick up issue one and two this week and you can help make that happen.
Once again, as I was saying I like to support women and POC in comics, and this issue stars a half Japanese girl as the protagonist, and as someone who’s already read it, it’s pretty darn cool. Basically she moves back to Japan to live with her mom and a bunch of mystical creatures start popping up and it seems that the animal spirits in Japan are growing restlessness. But it’s a pretty fun first issue and if this sounds like something up your alley, then by all means go out there and support this issue.
New Warriors TPB #1
Okay, you all know me. You all know how much I’ve talked about New Warriors and how I’ve raved about it being a fun book that can still have depth, that is great for young readers and still appeals to people of all ages. I’ve applauded it for having a strong and diverse cast, for having some of my favorite female characters of the last few years, for being one of the few team books out there right now with more POC than not. And you also know that Marvel has canceled the series.
Well in the past they’ve canceled books but ended up relaunching them immediately afterwards after seeing a strong show of support from the fanbase, and this week the trade paperback finally comes out. Well I can’t think of a better way to show support for these characters than by going out and buying it. I know it’s expensive but hey, it’s a great fun ride that’s well worth your time. So if you have the money to put behind it, then I fully endorse it.
In my defense I forgot to reblog sooner because I’m in the middle of some important real life stuff
