I read this graphic novel in December for my Blitzen prompt of the Reindeer Readathon and it did not really live up to my expectations of it.
Synopsis: Powerful forces are converging on Earth and the women of the Marvel Universe are at the center of it! Years ago, a herald of Galactus sacrificed her life for the universe. Little did anyone realize, a shred of that spirit lived on…and now she’s back for vengeance on those who abandoned her. The most powerful super heroines of the Marvel Universe must put aside their differences to stop this threat before the Earth is destroyed. Emma Frost, She-Hulk, Agent Abigail Brand, Hellcat, Valkyrie, Monica Rambeau, Sue Storm…these mighty women will be put to the test as never before, as cities are destroyed, families are torn apart, and a cosmic resurrection changes the heroes’ lives forever! COLLECTING: Heralds #1-5
I was kind of unimpressed with this graphic novel. I was looking forward to it when I read that it was about a bunch of badass, strong female characters but they didn’t really live up to the badass part. There were barely any intense fight scenes. It was just lacking in a strong story arc.
The one thing I liked was Valkyrie and the comments she makes in every dire situation. She doesn’t seem to understand being subtle due to her Norse heritage and it comes off in an entertaining way.
You could read this graphic novel if you want and I am sure that it gets better (if there are more to the series) but I will probably not pick up any more issues because I know there are many other great graphic novels out there.
Book Rating: 2/5
Disclaimer: I bought this book with my own money and read it because I wanted to.
