I cannot wait for May 1st, when the new Avengers film comes out. I’ve been into comic books since I was about seven years old. To celebrate the upcoming film (with more cape wearers to follow throughout the summer,) here’s a few of my favorite superhero things you can find at the library:
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon by Naoko Takeuchi
The coolest Magic Girl who’s still punishing people in the name of the moon today.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer by Joss Whedon
Before the Avengers, Joss Whedon brought us Buffy. Her adventures continue in comic books.
Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk by Stan Lee
The first issues of the original Hulk, a very different (and much greyer!) Hulk than we know today.
Ms. Marvel: No Normal by Willow Wilson
Kamala Khan might be the new kid on the superhero block, but she’s shaping up to be an awesome one.
Batman: Year One by Frank Miller
The Batman Begins movie was strongly based on this work, about Batman’s first year in the cape.
Earth’s Mightiest Heroes
Hear me out: this animated series was really well done, and because it came out before some of the Avenger’s related movies, it has some surprising twists on the characters.
The Dark Knight Movie
Poor Batman, can’t catch a break against the Joker.
The Avengers Movie
Of course, this is going on the list!
