I have a ginormous backlog of stuff I read and didn't talk about, to the point where I've kind of stopped tracking what I'm reading. THIS ENDS NOW. I'm going to try to get through as many of these as I can.

Plogoff, by Delphine Le Lay (scenario) and Alexis Horellou (art): This a BD about the events of the Affaire de Plogoff aka that time the French government wanted to put a nuclear powerplant in Brittany SO BADLY that they sent fucking tanks and paratroopers against the local population. The comic is quite welldoen and approved by the people who made this primary source documentary.

Star Wars Princess Leia, by Mark Waid (scenario) and Terry Dodson (art): In which leia goes on a roadtrip immediately post A New Hope to gather Alderaanian expats, who are the only survivors of Alderaan. She's aided in her quest by Evaan Verlaine, an Alderaanian pilot. I enjoyed seeing the two of them grow closer. (I ship it.) Also, it's pretty cool that pertty much everyone's a woman, even though, well, Terry Dodson gonna Terry Dodson. Leia's figure does not look like that.

DC Comics Bomshells 1-36 (Year One), by Marguerite Bennett (scenario) and Marguerite Sauvage (+ various) (art): DO YOU WANT TO SEE BATWOMAN FIGHT NAZIS? This is a self-contained continuity set during WW2 where all the superheroes are women (not genderbent versions of male heroes, AU versions of DC canonically female heroes). It updates (backdates?) and modifies their backstory as needed, but always interesting way. I really like that they made Stargirl and Supergil (adopted) sisters, for example. French Resistance fighter Poison Ivy is AMAZING (and her and Harley fall in love <3). I enjoy it greatly.

Here's a list of stuff I have also read. I'll go down the list, unless someone wants me to talk about anything specific.

The fact that this happened in Brittany is far from insignificant -- there has been an unfortunate, centuries-long tendency from the French government to try and run roughshod over Brittany, to put it mildly.

Did you succeed in not getting the power plant?

Yes, but only because the presidential election happened and the new guy was against it.

Well, I am still glad to hear it.

I have Bombshells vol. 1 in my hot little hands. It looks so much fun and I'm super excited to get to it.

Also, was The Grass King's Concubine any good? I've heard conflicting accounts.

Bombshells is SO MY HAPPY PLACE especially with all the shit falling since over a year ago at Marvel. I splurged on all four trades and have never regretted it. The art, the characters, the story, it's all fantastic.

(also, Constantine as a bunny)

It's so wild, how one of the Big Two (LOL) is all about "let's RUIN everything and make you SUFFER" and the other is like "You want queer superladies in an alternate WWII that doesn't cheapen the original setting and is loads of fun but still has serious themes? You want four volumes of that? You want a continuation and side stories?" I mean it's based on GENDERSWAP CHEESECAKE FIGURINES, ffs (albeit very cute ones).
