Some Comic Books I Read Recently

Monstress v.2: The Blood by Marjorie Liu: Incredibly rich world-building and the art is beautiful. Unfortunately, it’s very exposition heavy. I kept sort of dozing off while reading it–probably shouldn’t have tried to read it at the end of a long day…

X-Men: Grand Design by Ed Piskor: Summarizes about 30 years of X-Men comics. A love letter to the X-Men, basically. I was delighted by it, but then… I’ve been an X-Men fan for about 30 years. If you’re there too, this book’s for you. I’m very much looking forward to v.2.

All Star Batman: First Ally by Scott Snyder: Exploring the relationship between Bruce Wayne and Alfred. Some good stuff there, about fathers and sons.
