Top Ten Tuesday (108)

This week's topic is all about the visuals, so I'm going to show you my favorite comics of the moment.

I was never really a big comic person, but then they decided to update Jem and the Holograms and the rest, as they say, is history.  Jem was my first favorite show ever.  Like, I taped over the home movies from my 5th birthday party trying to tape Jem as a child.  I bought tapes of the entire series on Ebay as soon as I knew what Ebay was.  (I still have not seen the terrible movie they made in 2015, don't ask me).  This IDW series is truly the reboot we deserved.  The colors are gorgeous, the characters are diverse, the humor is on point, the respect for the source material is there...I honestly couldn't be happier with this series and am completely willing to throw all my money at it.

I saw a lot of talk about 'hot Archie' before I picked up this series and let me tell you, I didn't expect to love it anywhere near as much as I do.  I grew up in the heyday of X-Men comics, so I couldn't even imagine having a contemporary comic about high school kids be as addicting as this is.  AND they've already branched out - to Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Sabrina, Josie and the Pussycats, Afterlife with Archie...I am totally obsessed.

There are a bunch of others that I've been meaning to check out, but haven't yet: Bitch Planet, Lady Killer, Lumberjanes.  I might become a bonafide comic reader yet...Do you have any comics that you're into right now?


  1. I really want to read the Archie comics! I remember reading them when I was younger and now that there is that adaptation on Netflix I feel the need to dive into them again.

  2. I did not do a list today for myself, I asked my daughter if she wanted to help and list her favorite books!
    I never read a comic book.So The only ones I read were the VA and Percy Jackson graphic novels. But we did something a little different. Allyson added some comics she read on her list.
