Next up is Kimberly with her picks for the month of March. If you've got a list we'd love to hear it, but in the meantime enjoy Kimberly's picks!
I’m not usually a fan of DC comics but occasionally I’ll give it a chance. At first, I didn’t think I would like the new Harley series but after the first issue I added it to my pull list. What I love most about this series is that it shows the softer side of Harley. Within the first couple of issues she had a long list of kills for dudes that mistreated animals. Her and stuffed beaver are an adorable duo that adds to the creepy cute vibe of the series. Honestly, I’m not sure what they are doing with the plot but who cares! The series is weird and entertaining.
I am so in love with this series. Yes, I am a new comer to ElfQuest but I became obsessed from the first issue. This month’s issue was just as beautifully illustrated as the last. There are so many badass ladies rockin glorious mermaid hair. Childhood me would have wanted to be Ember; hell even as an adult I want to be Ember. Though we are just in the beginning stages of this arc it doesn’t lack action and I would recommend this to any elf fandom.
I’ve always been a pretty big fan Pendleton Ward and adorable things. Honestly, what made me like Bravest Warriors is Catbug. Especially, this month’s issue was just cute overload with Catbug and other little creatures in various costumes. They are just feel good comics that make me laugh and their adorable friendships hug my heart.
Furious has become one of my favorite comics that has come out this year. I’m so impressed with the character development. Furious struggles with inner demons which yes are common among superheroes but her battle is very unique. Although you get to see this very troubling yet humanizing side of Furious it’s hard not to root for her. It shows her desperation to be okay with her past and the responsibility that comes with being a superhero. The whole series builds on uncovering who she is not only for the reader but I think for Furious too. I think Dustin said it best in his review with, “this series continues to get better and better with each issue and no… there isn’t another title out there that’s anything like it.”
So the last few issues of Adventure Time were these one shot stories that may have seemed like filler but I loved this month’s issue. Finn and Jake have this strange existential crisis which leads them to a chamber where they can leave their mortal bodies. There’s always this undertone of human complexities that adults can also enjoy in Adventure Time. Again, just at Bravest Warriors I like this comic because it makes me laugh and it has this innocent humor that’s so rare in comics. -- Be sure to check out the other "Top Five's" on the site!
