I read the first A-Force trade and liked it a lot more than I expected. When I finished reading, I noticed that it was by G. Willow Wilson and I really liked her Ms. Marvel so I felt less surprised and also very excited to start the second trade. Then I checked it out and I realized another reason that I get so ticked off about comics. New writers. New artists. I know Kelly Thompson from her work on Jem, the first trade of which I really liked. I decided to give it a try.
I liked it. I did. Again.
Which has left me in a kind of conundrum. Am I going to have to admit that maybe I DO like superhero comics, if they are the right ones? Am I going to have to trust Marvel's choice in writers and artists? (I don't think I can do that because we all know they have a tendency to do stupid stuff constantly. Though I do like that both writers for this series were women.) And, you know, is there ever going to be more A-Force because I kind of need it?
We join the team this time in the midst of a battle that is going poorly. It goes poorly enough that She Hulk ends up in the hospital, in a coma. Meanwhile, Captain Marvel has heard a prophecy that Nico will kill a woman named Alice. Cap wants to arrest Nico in order to prevent this murder until they can figure out what is going on. Nico is not a fan of being arrested by her teammate and runs away (ha) to a safe house she has in Colorado. However, when she gets there she finds that the townspeople are being turned into giant insects.
Another fun run! I want more, Marvel. -RYQ
