He is seeing visions of his dead friends – or are they literal ghosts? When an act of kindness prompts a confession from him, Reggie must decide for himself, once and for all-is there any good within him? Or is Reggie, as we’ve always suspected, beyond redemption?

Comic Book Haul [#5]

Comic-Book-HaulHey guys!

Welcome back to another Comic Book Haul! Today I want to show you what I got this week in comics. I have always been a lover/reader/collector of all sorts of comic books and I can’t wait to show you which ones I got this week.

This week I want to start with the superheros! Ever since I was a little kid I have been obsessed with superheros. I legitimately believed I was one day going to be called upon by Zordon and become the Blue Power Ranger. I still believe it actually!

Batgirl 42

Publisher: Marvel Comics
Release Date: July 29, 2015

SECRET WARS SERIES
•  ROGUE & GAMBIT…together at last?
•  WOLVERINE face-to-face-to-face with CYBER and OMEGA RED!
•  All orchestrated by THE SHADOW QUEEN!
•  Battleworld’s most ’90sest district’s tubular tale keeps rocking!

Batgirl is one of my all time favorite superheros. Pretty much the whole Bat Family is but Batgirl is high on the totem pole. She is extremely relatable and most human like. Always making clumsy mistakes and is just an all around fun character! And then there’s the X-men. Who doesn’t love the X-men? Even better is the fact that it’s the 1992 cartoon version I remember watching as a kid. Gambit is to die for.

Next up I have two very fun and cartoon-y comics to show you. Some of you may remember this show from when we were kids. It brings back fond memories of me and my older sister! As well, I of course had to bring you guys another Archie comic! Let’s check them out.
