Comic Crush Saturday: August 10, 2019

Welcome to Comic Crush Saturday, our bi-weekly feature focused on the graphic elements of the book world. Comics became a huge part of my life a few years ago when I started reviewing them (and comic related TV shows) on Forever Young Adult. I’ve maintained a pulllist through my local comic shop, Isotope Comics, and even got Kelly to start one ;). You’ll find mini-reviews, what we’ve read recently, and more so check it out!

Featured Review of the Week

This post comes ahead of our recap of the She-Ra panel at SDCC but I could not wait to talk about season 3! Without spoiling it for Kelly (and any of you who need to catch up), here is what I loved most about this season:

  • Shadow Weaver. Her shift this season is an interesting one and I can’t wait to see how they further explore it.
  • Huntara & the Crimson Waste. Geena Davis did an AMAZING job voice acting here.
  • Alternative Realities. My heart hurts for Glimmer.
  • Scorpia. Catra does not deserve her. WE do not deserve her.
  • That Finale. SO MANY TEARS.

What We Can’t Wait For

Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass

by Mariko Tamaki, Steve Pugh
Published by: DC Ink
on September 3, 2019
Pages: 196

Harleen is a tough, outspoken, rebellious kid who lives in a ramshackle apartment above a karaoke cabaret owned by a drag queen named MAMA. Ever since Harleen's parents split, MAMA has been her only family. When the cabaret becomes the next victim in the wave of gentrification that's taking over the neighborhood, Harleen gets mad.

When Harleen decides to turn her anger into action, she is faced with two choices: join Ivy, who's campaigning to make the neighborhood a better place to live, or join The Joker, who plans to take down Gotham one corporation at a time.

Harley Quinn: Breaking Glass is at once a tale of the classic Harley readers know and love, and a heartfelt story about the choices teenagers make and how they can define--or destroy--their lives. This is the first title in DC's new line of original graphic novels for middle grade and young adult readers.

Look, this may be my way back to DC. They’re killing it with graphic novel creators.

Best News of the Week

Goldie Vance and Fence are some of the BEST Boom comics and now they’re getting their own standalone novels!
