Lois Lane: Fallout – Gwenda Bond
DC, super heroes, fiction.
Lois Lane’s first day at Metropolis High is just a new day at a different high school except there are bullies. These people are a part of this online society that is cult-like. Lois wants just normalcy and that challenged the normalcy part when this society began to affect her. She puts her reporter hat on and digs into this mystery.
This was an interesting read as I do love Lois Lane. She is a spit fire of a woman. I can’t say more other than this is really good at giving her a backstory. I enjoyed this adventure and hadn’t known much about the backstory of Lois Lane. This helps understand her passion for being a reporter as we see her in her young adult life at the Daily Planet. Origin stories are always fun to read and a pleasure to know. This felt short but I found out that there are more in this series which I will eventually hunt down. I do recommend this novel if you love Lois Lane.
My Hero Academia Vol 26 – Kohei Horikoshi
Manga, superheroes, super villains, quirks, school, fiction.
Deku, Bakugo, and Shouto begin to prove themselves as heroes to work at Endeavor’s work place. Each of them explains their strengths and their weaknesses. They all are invited over to Shouto’s house to have dinner. When they leave, they come across a villain and put the villain away. All of them worked together. The next day, life resumes for U.A. High but word on the street is a new villain that is way deadlier than any has ever faced.
This was alright. I loved the moments with Shouto’s family and saw that their family was healing. I mean it’s a good thing to try to mend the family. I appreciated this volume for the Bakugo moments. I think he is my second or third favorite. I will always love Shouto as my number one. As always, the artwork was perfect, and this was a rather a cliffhanger. Can’t wait for the next manga.
My Hero Academia – Story and Art by Kohei Horikoshi
Superheroes, villains, schools, manga, teen, fiction.
Tomura Shigaraki was Tenko Shimura, that was before he got his quirk that ultimately changed his life. His quirk makes people deteriorate into pieces. That is his origin story of how he became Tomura Shigaraki and feared by most. The Meta Liberation Army decided to pick a fight with Tomura, that was their worst mistake because Shigaraki’s quirk should never be under estimated. The Meta Liberation Army is defeated, and the Commander pledges the entire Army to and under Shigaraki. Deku and his fellow classmates learn how to do interviews on television. Eri celebrates her first Christmas with class 1A and the season is full of joy. While Shoto asks Deku and Bakugo if they want to work at his father’s agency, the Meta Human Liberation Army continues their plotting with a new leader.
This manga gave me overwhelming amount of emotions from the first page until the very last page. One of them was Tomura Shigaraki’s origin story that had me crying. This quirk was so traumatizing and so horrible to the point I understand why he became who he currently is. Another scene that had me balling my eyes out was Eri celebrating Christmas, but she was wearing a cute Santa Outfit and was so cute and adorable about it. That tugged hard at my heart strings the most. The poor kid suffered and deserves the whole world. I loved this book especially for that scene. I do suggest reading this entire manga series as well as watch the anime series too. Both are good, and the anime remains true to the manga. However, season 5 is in the works from the last I heard about and I hope they continue to remain true for anime series. Otherwise, I might have some issues in regards of the directing and production of the next season. To catch up, I think Hulu does offer all four seasons dubbed and subbed, for sure Funimation has them up to date with the dubs and subs.
My Hero Academia Vigilantes Vol. 1
Story – Hideyuki Furuhashi
Art – Betten Court
Original Concept – Kohei Horikoshi
Superheroes, vigilantes, crime fighting, manga, young adult, fiction.
Koichi lives in a world where most of the population has a quirk, whether that quirk be useful or strange. He has a slide and glide quirk that doesn’t and isn’t impressive at all. When Knuckleduster arrives and tells Koichi that they must work together to fight as vigilantes, he doesn’t believe in the old man. Both save Pop Step from these villains who prove to be super powerful suddenly. Both investigate this weird occurrences and concluded that since no one is noticing these incidences that they must take matters into their own hands.
I read this because my boyfriend was so fascinated by the plot. I disagree. This feels very much like the main series but without hero fighting but just being vigilantes. I only liked one character, but she wasn’t the focus of the manga. This manga wasn’t my favorite and I prefer the other manga My Hero Academia over this one. There wasn’t much substance to the plot and felt more of a crime fighting rather than wholesome as My Hero Academia was.
