Last Monday, I was shopping at Marshall’s with a gift card the boyfriend bought me. I enjoy buying clothes for a bargain plus I needed to mature my wardrobe for my full time job. I randomly popped into my local comic shop after I spent my gift card and bought a couple different comics. One mini goal of mine is to go to my local comic shop once a week or every other week to keep up with a variety of comics. Here is my haul from last Monday:
Moon Struck by Grace Ellis and Shae Beagle
Thanks to dePepi for this comic recommendation! dePepi is a female geek blogger who sometimes writes about comics to add to your pull list. I hadn’t heard of this comic, but it looks like a lovely body positive indie comic. Julie is the barista trying to serve all of those fancy coffee drinks with her centaur best friend Chet. Apparently a magical conspiracy occurs so now Julie needs to manage working as a barista and save her friends.
Green Arrow #1 by Benjamin Percy, Otto Schmidt and Juan Ferreyra
My sole reason for purchasing this is Benjamin Percy is from Minnesota! Plus I just finished Red Hood & the Outlaws Rebirth #1 which was pretty decent. I must admit that I am loving Rebirth versus DC’s New 52.
Jade Street Protection Services #2 by Katy Rex and Fabian Lelay
I bought the first issue of this comic at Convergence 2016 and when I saw Katy Rex at MCBA Comic Con this past May, she was sold out of the second issue of her comic. In Jade Street Protection Services Kai, Saba, Noemi, Divya, and Emma are rebellious students at Matsdotter Academy, an elite private school for girls with magical abilities. This comic is about following these punk rock sailor scouts attending a school similar to Hogwarts.
KaijuMax by Zander Cannon
Kaijumax is a comic that I have been missing out on and I was able to score this first issue for a dollar. Kaijumax is a prison filled with Kaiju monsters and vicious guards. I haven’t read this comic, but I have heard it’s somewhat violent so this comic isn’t for everyone.
I always need new comic recommendations so feel free to comment below with some of the comic series you’re enjoying so far. I plan on taking some much needed time on Tuesday, which is my day off from work, to read and get caught up on all the comics I have bought for this haul.
