Love and Capes (Vol 4): What to Expect by Thomas F. Zahler
Honestly, I wasn’t sure about how I’d feel about my favorite superhero and human couple, Mark and Abby, having a baby. I’m just not a fan of babies, and generally, these types of stories have me hiding my face. (I’ve never watched Knocked Up for instance.) However, Mark and Abby remain their adorable selves and their baby, like babies in real life, integrates into their lives. Plus, Zahler ends it with a great note.
I’m sad that this may be the final note of Love and Capes. Though you never know. Zahler may get tired of MLP.

Love and Capes (vol 2): Going to the Chapel by Thomas F. Zahler
As you can probably guess, I could draw hearts all over this book. I’m completely enamored with Abby and Mark and their relationship. Of course, like any good romantic comedy, it’s time for them to get married.
I loved Mark going to everyone to ask them how he should propose marriage to her. Blurstreak, the Booster Gold/Flash character, is pretty funny. I love him as the bachelor in the tale.

The continued story of Charlotte’s and Abby’s friendship is amazing. I love that Charlotte’s going to on with her life Continue reading “Love and Capes (vol 2): Going to the Chapel Graphic Novel Review”
