Okay, first thing’s first: I Absolutely LOVED this!
The art is stunning and the story of how some of our most iconic female DC characters enter the fray of WWII pulled me in right off the bat. (That may or may not have been a pun. I make no apologies.)
I love historical fiction, and this is, in my opinion, pretty damn good historical fiction.
There were multiple fun surprises (including some DC characters I absolutely did not expect to make appearances) throughout the first volume and I definitely look forward to reading the second.
Full Disclaimer: I had no idea what to expect when reading this other than that it was by Bryan Lee O’Malley and thus required reading.
He did not let me down!
This was a charming story that used old folklore but gave it a modern and fun spin.
The artwork is adorable and the characters and their interactions were great.
I think it’s safe to say that we’ve all had days we wish we could just re-do and pretend never happened. Well, for Katie, our sassy and career-driven protagonist (the girl with the red spiky hair pictured above), this becomes a totally feasible option thanks to some magic mushrooms (no, not THOSE kind of magic mushrooms), a notepad, and some old magic involving her home/workplace. But sometimes quick fixes are all too easy to abuse and Katie’s tale winds up taking a darker tumble down the rabbit hole than we expected.
The further you get into the story the more eager you find yourself flipping to the next page and the next page and so on.
