So enjoy part one of three of our favorites from last year. This week: Meredith's favorites.
Jem and the Holograms #1 (Kelly Thompson & Sophie Campbell) – This year saw the relaunch of the 80s cartoon series as both a movie and a comic series. The movie was abysmal, but don’t let that dissuade you from checking out this comic. Thompson and Campbell have managed to bring Jem into the modern era while keeping the spirit of Christy Marx’s original cartoon. It’s consistently one of the best written and drawn series I read. Find this issue in Jem and the Holograms Volume 1: Showtime.
|Rat Queens #10|
Find this issue in Rat Queens Volume 2: The Far Reaching Tentacles of N’Rygoth.
Batgirl Annual #3 (Cameron Stewart & Brenden Fletcher) – I don’t usually care for comic “annual” issues. They’re more expensive and the stories often make little sense in the context of the comic. What makes Batgirl Annual #3 great in my opinion are the characters that are included. Over the course of this comic Barbara crosses paths with her ex-boyfriend Dick Grayson, Batwoman, Maps & Olive at Gotham Academy, and most importantly – Stephanie Brown. Spoiler makes her first appearance in Batgirl with a giddy enthusiasm that warms my black soul.
Find this issue in Batgirl Volume 2: Family Business.
