“Captain Marvel is more than just an excellent comic about women. It’s an excellent comic all the way around. There’s a lot to love about Carol Danvers. Hell, there’s a lot to love about Kelly Sue DeConnick. The artwork is crisp and gorgeous—artist Filipe Andrade is my personal fave—and there’s an obvious and welcome lack of Rob Liefeld stylization. The dialogue is full of wisecracking banter and quippy casualness, and it’s an absolute delight to read. All the characters, male, female, superpowered, human, and variations thereupon, are petty, shallow, loyal, self-centered, mule-headed, embarrassed, determined, scared, charming, irritating, and everything else that makes us human. They don’t feel like decades-old characters spawned by a billion dollar corporation. They feel like real people trying their best to deal with impossible situations. Hera help me, I’d give just about anything to have a cup of coffee with Captain Whiz Bang and Spider-Woman.”

My sewing machine and I had another date last week. We went to the Batman Birthday celebrations at our favourite comic book store and the little girl needed a Batgirl cape! I copied the look of the new designs I have seen online. She already had the yellow boots so we just needed the cape. A few years back, I made the boy a cape, so this time, I added the mask.

They enjoyed going to Happy Harbour Comics in search of evil-doers. The girl even tangled with her nemisis, Robo-T-Rex. The boy got a free comic. Another fun family outing!
