With gorgeous illustrations and impeccable linework, I was hooked by the first page; the writing is fast paced but continually creates a story of oppression and a steady rise to power.
We shouldn’t box the very real oppression faced by people of color in America and around the world with the kind of oppression the X-Men face, we can draw parallels and X-Men is undoubtedly about loving the skin/or power you were born with despite the oppression you face, an inherently political act, especially if that skin is blue.
Come along as I read my way through 80’s comic series including Batman, Cloak and Dagger and The New Teen Titans.
If there is anything you, my loving readers, should know about me it’s that I love just about anything Sci-fi and Horror and I have a sweet spot for comics with either. Add a nibble of politics to that combo and my heart races!
This annual brings us all kinds of stories – action packed, emotional, and even creepy. If you’re a Batman fan or a comic lover looking to continue the holiday spirit, this annual is for you.
Joelle Jones shows off all of the skills of a classically trained artist in her art but you can feel the deep love and appreciation for the classic comic style. Each detail, layer, and angle are created to immerse you in this 1960’s pastel world along with Josie Schuller our killer.
