I'm a bookworm of the highest caliber! If you see me, I'll probably be reading. There's nothing I love more than finding a good book, and then sharing it with the world!

Angela: Asgard's Assassin (2014) #1

ANGELA: ASGARD'S ASSASSIN (2014) #1 - Kieron Gillen, Stephanie Hans, Marguerite Bennett, Phil Jimenez

Okay, this has my interest. Hardcore.

 

First off, Angela is a total badass. What's not to love about a warrior angel, with her own mission in mind? Plus I absolutely love the way that she's drawn. Generally I'm not a fan of scantily clad characters, but good lord in heaven is she GORGEOUS. She looks like a real person, albeit an extremely well toned one ;).

 

What can I say? I'm a bit biased. I love everything I've read that Kieron Gillen has ever touched. He's my hero. It's like he eats, sleeps and breathes strong female characters. 

 

This first issue was a bit of a teaser. It gave us some of Angela's background, set up her bad-ass attitude, and set the stage for the craziness to come. I can't WAIT!
