A new kind of superhero

ms_marvel_coverHi all! Phew, sorry to go so long between posts, but you honestly won’t need much lead time to catch up on our April book. Well, books. We’re reading Issues 1-10 of the new “Ms. Marvel” graphic novel series. Some of our members picked up hardcover books containing Issues 1-10, and some of us will pick up Volumes 1 and 2 separately, “No Normal” and “Generation Why.” If you pick up the two soft-cover volumes, you’ll actually be getting Issues 1-11, but I don’t think anyone will complain about having a little extra. In fact, one member has already burned through Volumes 1-4 and has no more “Ms. Marvel” left to read, she was that hooked.

These slim volumes turn the Ms. Marvel cannon around – no longer is she a buxom blonde accessory character, but in this new iteration is a Muslim-American teenager living in Jersey City. She rocks the superhero jam in her own unique way. There’s a giant dog, some familiar superheroes, and awesome full-color illustrations.

Copies of Volumes 1 and 2 are available to pick up at the Reference Desk, and you can very likely pick these up the day before we meet and still be plenty prepared. More power to you if you read Volumes 3 and 4! Join us Tuesday 4/26 at 7:30 pm at Napper Tandy’s left-hand-side bar 😀
