Shop Captain Marvel:

Review by Henry Varona

In the summer of 2012, Marvel embarked on a bold new vision for one of their premier heroines. Carol Danvers, a longtime member of the Avengers, took up the mantle of Captain Marvel and changed the face of Marvel forever. Suddenly Carol Danvers transformed into one of Marvel’s most popular heroes and the “Carol Corps” (The loving name for Captain Marvel fans) had become one of the most powerful voices in the world of comics. Now, years later, Marvel Studios has launched Carol in her first film role. As a proud member of the Carol Corps, I can say that not only does this movie honor the legacy of Carol Danvers, it also provides viewers with one of the most unique heroes in Marvel’s pantheon, showing that there is limitless potential from the superhero juggernaut!

So you read comics, and you want to branch out and read novels. Where do you start? Right here! I’ve got the comic to novel comparisons to get your literary journey started!

Reading is reading, right? If I enjoy it, I should be willing to indulge in all its forms. But I don’t. In fact, I know I’m not alone as the only finicky reader out there. I like what I like after all! I tend to stick with certain types of characters, especially ones that remind me of myself; lighthearted, intelligent, sarcastic adventurers.  Most of the time, the only prerequisite for me liking a character is just if they resonate with me.

I also tend to read within a genre. Fantasy and Sci-fi stories engage me the most, even though I’m not opposed to a good mystery or biography every once in awhile.

The trouble is, once you’re entrenched in a reading genre or community, it becomes difficult to gauge what books, in unfamiliar genres, would resonate with you.
