By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

In Pursuit of Flight

Captain Marvel, Vol. 1: In Pursuit of Flight - Dexter Soy, Emma Ríos, Kelly Sue DeConnick

Ana said this one was great and that I would like it (WWII! Female pilots!) and she was absolutely right. I loved Carol Danvers, and how much of the story was centered on her friendships with other women, the sense of history and feminism in both the past and present. I didn’t love the art, but I truly enjoyed this one and will definitely be looking for other Captain Marvel books. (Plus, she leads into Ms. Marvel who of course I loooooove.)
