Comic Crush Saturday: February 9, 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 Book of the Week

Review:

Archie, but with superheroes!

Honestly, there aren’t enough comic books starring teens. There definitely aren’t enough comic books exploring adult heroes AS teens. But this does both and I am totally here for it.

I had Valiant High on my radar but it wasn’t until James at Isotope Comics (shoutout to my amazing store!) placed issue one in my hands that I knew I had to read the series. The art on this story is vivid and attractive, as are the characters. 

I loved getting to know various Valiant characters through this story, which was the focus versus the story. I read Faith and I have Livewire on my TBR but seeing them and so many more characters made me even more interested in the Valiant universe. I especially loved how a character was called on a non-consensual kiss. 

Wish there were more than 4 issues!

Best News of the Week

All I ever wanted was a better way to read the classics that were forced on me. This is great.

The best part of cons are moments like this.
