Graphic Novel Reviews

Posted by Caitie F on August 6, 2015

Well it has been a while, but it is summer and it has been busy and I have SO many books to review.

I have been reading a lot of graphic novels lately, thanks to Panels and specifically the amazing @skrishna‘s videos and recommendations. I have gone done the graphic novel hole and I don’t want to come out!

I am going to review the four things I have read so far this summer, in a much less formal way than usual!

Y: The Last Man


The first one is something that my husband has been encouraging me to read for a while. He even got my Volume 1 for the holidays. I have now finished al 10 Volumes (but not in order since my library didn’t get the numbering right) and it is SO GOOD.

The concept is that a disease wiped out all males mammels (and other species as well), except for Yorick and his monkey. He wants to get to Australia where his girlfriend Beth is, but there are a ton of people and obstacles in the way.

But this really isn’t all about Yorick, it is about the women around him who are brilliant, funny, and kick SO MUCH ASS in every way possible. There are women who are crazy villains. There are women who are amazing heroes. There are women who are just trying to survive. I really thought it was smart and really made me think the entire time I read it.

Ms Marvel Volume 2: Generation Why



I LOVE Ms Marvel. I will read every Ms Marvel thing that ever comes out. Kamala is my favorite and I want to see more of her everywhere. Let’s get a Kamala Khan movie, TV show, and merch. And make sure Lockjaw is in it too.

This is so expertly written and draw and you will really want to take your time reading Ms Marvel so you can appreciate everything. I am not going to spoil anything for you, because that is part of what was so great about my reading experience of this volume.

So excited I just got Volume 3 from the library.

Batgirl, Vol. 1: The Batgirl of Burnside


I went into my first DC comic knowing nothing about Batgirl. I didn’t even know who she was before this. But I really enjoyed this Batgirl. I like that she is young. I like that she is super smart. I love her friends and that this feel modern. The villains are the one downside, but I do like how technology is used.

I will be reading the next volume of this one as well!
