2018 Hugo Ballot: Best Graphic Novel
Black Bolt (2017-) #1 - Leonard Bacon;Joseph Parrish Thompson;Richard Salter Storrs;Henry Ward Beecher;Joshua Leavitt;Henry Chandler Bowen;Theodore Tilton;William Hayes Ward;Hamilton Holt;Harold de Wolf Fuller;Fabian Franklin;Christian Archibald Herter,Saladin Ahmed
Bitch Planet Volume 2: President Bitch - Kelly Sue DeConnick
Monstress Volume 2: The Blood - Marjorie M. Liu
My Favorite Thing Is Monsters - Emil Ferris
Paper Girls Volume 3 - Brian K. Vaughan
Saga, Volume 7 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

This is part of a series of posts reviewing categories in this year's Hugo ballot. I'll be discussing the entries, the voter packet, and my ballot. I've nominated and voted most years since 2011, when I figured out that all I had to do was join Worldcon to get to do so.


I'd only read 2 of these in advance of the finalist announcement. Two more are properties I'm familiar with from earlier volumes.


  • Black Bolt, Volume 1: Hard Time, written by Saladin Ahmed, illustrated by Christian Ward, lettered by Clayton Cowles (Marvel) - 3.5 stars, loved the art and liked the writing. Still laughing that his name is Blackagar Boltagon. 


  • Bitch Planet, Volume 2: President Bitch, written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, illustrated by Valentine De Landro and Taki Soma, colored by Kelly Fitzpatrick, lettered by Clayton Cowles (Image Comics) 4.5 Stars, this one I adored to much to even put into words.


  • Monstress, Volume 2: The Blood, written by Marjorie M. Liu, illustrated by Sana Takeda (Image Comics) -  4 Stars, a stronger book than the first one in terms of pacing, and with the same gorgeous art.


  • My Favorite Thing is Monsters, written and illustrated by Emil Ferris (Fantagraphics) - Interesting concept, but very slow. I didn't actually finish this book.


  • Paper Girls, Volume 3, written by Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Cliff Chiang, colored by Matthew Wilson, lettered by Jared Fletcher (Image Comics) - 3.5 Stars, did not love.


  • Saga, Volume 7, written by Brian K. Vaughan, illustrated by Fiona Staples (Image Comics) - 3 Stars, fine, but kind of a low point for the series so far.


So Bitch Planet is definitely at the top, followed by Monstress and Black Bolt. The other three could go in any order, but maybe I'll just leave them off because I don't really feel strongly about them at all.

Despicable Deadpool (2017-2018) #300 - Scott Koblish,Mike Hawthorne,Gerry Duggan,Matteo Lolli

They went all out, setting up the next series perfectly.    This Deadpool - and those before - ended up getting bogged down by a lot of baggage.   It was harder to balance the emotional aspect with the off-the-walls manic humor and social statements, and so they found a way out.   


I'm sure this will come back later, but for now...


I say perfect.   But I'd think that there would be a way to Google things, but I suspect someone will take care of that, or it will be explained later on?   


So much vomit.   Content warning for y'all.   Usually I stop reading at vomit, but it got funnier and funnier, and just yes.   


ETA: Cap played a huge part in this and I'm still one-half starring everything with Cap in it until Marvel apologizes for the gas lighting about Hydra never being nazis and reverses the decision on that.

Read this because I saw Black Panther recently
Marvel's Black Panther Prelude (2017) #1 (of 2) - Will Pilgrim,Annapaola Martello

This was up for free on Comixology - I believe it still is - and I wanted to see what this book was like.   Call it morbid curiosity: Black Panther was okay, but I didn't think it was one of the stronger Marvel offerings.   I know that it got a lot of hype and that many, many people think this is the best Marvel movie ever.   What I mean is I may be in the minority.   I did appreciate how strong a role women - and women of color I should specify - took in the movie.   I appreciated seeing a Marvel movie that was all people of color, to be honest.


That being said, I think it dragged, I was already bummed about Vision's obvious role in Infinity War and I  knew he wasn't in this.  I also read Black Panther, but it's never been one of my go-to characters or books.   I didn't have the nostalgia factor or the emotional investment in this.   I also think that Civil War was a better movie that engaged me more, especially the parts with Black Panther in them.   


On a geek level, which I feel is less important than seeing strong black women in the movies, I enjoyed how Black Panther included so many of the characters from the comics while trying to minimize some of the racism in said comics.   (By having different tribes, the animal masks that represented different tribes and not using them much, they could have M'Baku - Man-Ape in the comics - without us thinking of him as an ape.  Or I didn't.   I saw him as a very human character with very human motivations, whereas in the comic booth his costume, the constant use of the 'Man-Ape' title and simplistic power-hungry motivations make him far less relatable and quite frankly make it easier to dehumanize him.)  


So I'm going over the movie because I saw it before reading the prelude.  I went in carefully: I was expecting to like but not love this.   The is the story of how T'Challa starts off as the Black Panther.   I found the storyline more engaging, but the lack of strong female characters was mind-boggling given how many strong women the movie is filled with.    In fact, I found the lack annoying in this comic. 


Good look at how he starts superheroing and what shapes and motivates Black Panther, but not sure I'll read the second.   Yes, it was good, but not great, and I am way, way behind on my comics right now.

Very rarely does vomit make me laugh this hard

And also poor Vision!   But I can't stop giggling. 


Deadpool's reaction to seeing giant Ant Man!
