There’s no easy way to sum up what’s happened in 18 issues of a plot-heavy, horror-mystery comic. Again, all 18 issues will be available in trade by the end of the month. There are many reasons you need to pay attention to this comic book series. For one, it is written by a man who understands how to write a female character. Even better, Moore knows how to draw real women, a problem in the comic book industry. Rachel Rising is an exceptional comic worth your time and money.
In Marvel’s all-ladies series, Cullen Bunn brings together some of the company’s best female character into one book. Valkyrie, an Asgardian warrior, was charged with finding Shieldmaidens on Migard (Earth) to act as protectors of this realm. Valkyrie, however, didn’t believe there were any women worthy of standing beside her to act as warriors. She spent much of her time on Earth fighting on her own and enjoying the simple pleasures of humans, such as good food, good drink, and good sex.
