My Review:

 

I have only been reading graphic novels for about a year now and this is the book I needed before I started.  Fearless and Fantastic if full of information about the female super heroes in the Marvel universe.

 

This book features the characters most of us know.  Captain Marvel, Black Widow, Storm, Gamora, etc.  But it also features lesser known super heroes.  The ones that aren’t in the popular movies.  Characters like Ms. Marvel (my favorite), Squirrel Girl, Dazzler, and Mockingbird.  Each character has beautiful artwork, information about them/their history, and some of their friends and allies.  This is the perfect book for someone just starting to read Marvel comics.  I was able to learn more about their backstories that I missed in the graphic novels I’ve read.

 

I gave this 4  1/2 stars.  The only thing I wished was for a bigger book.  I would have loved a couple pages for each hero along with another page or two of photos.  This was a quick, easy read that has already helped me out.

 

 

Have you read this book?  Do you have a favorite Marvel Super Hero?  Are there any you wish you knew more about?
