Review: Gwenpool, the Unbelievable, Vol 1

Gwenpool, the Unbelievable Vol. 1: Believe It - Christopher Hastings, Gurihiru Gurihiru

What an enormous amount of fun. Gwen Poole, real girl, has fallen into comics, a medium she both loves and has myriad issues with. And hopefully myriad issues to explore them in. Join her as she aggressively avoids having an origin story and blows shit up. There's a reason I said "real" and not "normal." This is so much fun! Bullets, explosions, and fourth wall quips.


And isn't self awareness and violent women all anyone wants out of fiction?
