Hey, all! Sorry for this bit of delay on this wrap up and announcement. To make sure that I got it out to you all ASAP, this post will be a two-for-one deal, with the November wrap up (up ahead) and our announcement for December’s trade (down below)! Before getting started, I hope you all had an amazing holiday break and ate all the food and pie. But for now… let’s get started on November’s wrap up!

During the month of November, we all picked up Manifest Destiny, Vol. 1: Flora and Fauna! It was picked by a fellow helper of the Iggles’ Comic Book Alliance and offered a twist on the history we’ve come to know. I found the story to be quite fun and the art to be dazzling to the eyes. It was also quite funny, making it a nice mixture for comic fans alike. I thought the whole “retelling of history” trope would make me sway away from this trade, but it changed it in such nice ways that that never affected me. It’s fresh, fun, and full of adventure. It’s definitely more of a “summer” trade to read if you’re looking for a seasonal read, but honestly can be picked up and enjoyed at anytime.

Here’s a few questions we can discuss below, on Goodreads, or on Twitter!

Now onto our trade announcement for December! It’s December officially. It’s a big month. Why? …

STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS! (Ahhhhhhhhhh!) So our trade of the month will be Star Wars: Journey to The Force Awakens: Shattered Empire. It’s a brand new comic that’s already completed and bound into a handy trade and follows a post-Jedi era. It’s all canon and gives us clues and tidbits about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It’s quite amazing and I hope you all will love it. Here’s the synopsis and the info on where we’ll be talking about it!

Synopsis:

For the first time in the new Star Wars canon, journey with us into the time after the end of Star Wars Episode VI Return of the Jedi! Writer Greg Rucka (PUNISHER, WOLVERINE, Gotham Central) and artist Marco Checchetto (AVENGERS WORLD, PUNISHER) take us past the destruction of the second Death Star – and into the chaos of a Shattered Empire. It’s the explosive lead-in to this winter’s blockbuster big-screen Star Wars revival, and everything you need to know is right here!
