December 2013 Review

It’s always sad to close out a year. But I can honestly say that 2013 has been a wonderful year for me: I’m officially halfway through my graduate degree program, Girls in Capes launched and met with wonderful successes, and I had the opportunity to meet some of the most interesting people yet.

December was a great month, though: I had the opportunity to speak at an event in my hometown and ended the year at Girls in Capes with a bang.

Here are a few pieces I did this December:

This month, I read a ton of books to catch up on my 100 Books in 2013 challenge.  There were several graphic novels – SWEET REIN Vol. 1, WONDER WOMAN: THE HIKETEIA, WHO IS WONDER WOMAN?, RINNE vol. 1 & 2, and THE COMPLETE PERSEPOLIS – along with a few prose titles as well, including ALLEGIANT and HOSTAGE THREE.

Of the new-to-me books, I think the best was probably RINNE, written and illustrated by one of my favorite mangaka. Naturally, though, my overall favorite read in December was WONDER WOMAN: THE HIKETEIA, which was a re-read for me. It’s the first American graphic novel I ever read, and it inspired me to read more comics. But beyond that, it changed my life in many ways, which I spoke on earlier this month during my appearance at Women Unbound in Toledo.
