PRINCELESS VOL. 7

THE DEAL: Humans and elves are at war. Dragons and sphinxes populate the land. Desert kingdoms and forest villages alike are caught up in the political schemes of … wait. Princesses are literally waiting in towers for a prince to rescue them?

Not all of them. A myriad of characters explore a world of fantasy tropes – and smash ’em to bits, one by one.

THE GOOD: I love a good genre-bender! It’s clearly written for a younger audience, but the dialogue is still tight and punchy, and each character has a unique voice that gives the world life...

Project Superpowers Vol 3 #5

Skipping into my first and fifth issue of Project Superpowers Vol 3, a team comic kinda like Fantastic Four, that introduces a conflict in progress from presumably a previous issue. Some if not all characters come from earlier runs in the golden age. And I sit down to determine at the end of the read to determine if it is worthy of a dive into past and future issues?

Synopsis: Spring Breakers meets Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels on the banks of the Thames!

THE DEAL: Haley is a 20-something girl with a mountain of debt and even higher expectations. Marriage, work, and adulthood have lost their shine already, and her addiction to attention has driven her into one of the most cutthroat industries in the modern age: social media modelling. Trouble is, the age of Instagram has made the whole world her competition – but a secret hashtag could be the route to stardom … if she’s willing to go all the way.

THE GOOD: I gotta tell you, I’m not a fan of social media, so I approached this one with more skepticism than usual. I’m happy to say that I was wrong – this is how you tell a modern story about youth in North America...
