My Favorite Media of the Year ~ Outside the Margins with Tami Veldura

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Tami Veldura goes Outside the Margins today.

Generally, new years posts are full of resolutions, help for resolutions, or goals for the coming seasons, but I figure you’re seeing a lot of those around the internet and could use a break. So here instead is a list of some of my favorite media I’ve been consuming in the last year.

I’ve changed a lot of my consumption in the last year as a direct result of friend suggestions and social media. I also don’t have cable TV, so I pick up my entertainment from a bunch of other outlets. But I like the direction things have taken! Let’s get started.

 

Princess Princess Ever After – Free Online

I have to put this adorable YA F/F story at the top of my list not the least because the art is gorgous. I adore every panel of this comic. Also: dragon. I’ll never say no to a dragon. But seriously, this is some beautiful work. The story starts classically: a princess is stuck in a tower and needs someone to rescue her. Fat positive, female main characters, and the best illustration. It’s free to read and I highly recommend you do so!

 

Thor – Comixology or your local comic shop!

I’m generally not a fan of the traditional hero comics. They’re largely male-gaze written and consumed, which just doesn’t do it for me. However, Thor has recently made a major change that I’m really starting to love. In this recent series Thor is a woman (although which woman of the Thor universe, you’ll have to read to find out!). The usual Thor suspects make an appearance: Odinson, Odin, Freja, Loki, Heimdal. It’s action-packed and excellent.

 

Monstress – Comixology or your local comic shop!

The first Monstress volume is a double one and I’m glad, because it gives new readers a nice beefy look into the world. After the very first issue I was sold! Monstress takes place in a world full of power and people seeking to exploit it. The main character is a woman with a mysterious origin, and a dangerous power inside of her. Recommended for the eldrich fan!

 

Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur – Comixology or your local comic shop!

AAAAH, I love this comic so much. Moon Girl is a new-generation hero comic being produced by marvel. I picked it up because there’s a giant T-Rex on the cover and they’re basically dragons. But what’s EVEN BETTER is the hero of this tale is a middle-school black girl and in one of the recent issues was just named the Most Intelligent Person EVER. The smartest person in the entire marvel universe is an excellent little black girl with a pet T-Rex. Smarter than Tony Stark (Iron Man), T’Challa (Black Panther), and kid-genius Amadeus Cho (The Hulk). Why aren’t you reading it already?!

 

Yuri on Ice – Playstation VRV or Crunchyroll (currently free!)

If you haven’t at least heard of YoI you must be living under a rock! Yuri on Ice is THE most popular anime right now. It’s phenomenally beautiful, hilarious, and absolutely a must-see. Generally, anime come to the TV screen after their print-versions (manga) have become quite popular. YoI is unique in that it has no Manga, it was made for TV only, yet it’s more popular in only 12 weeks than some anime that have built their followings over years. Yuri is a figure skater who has lost his love of the art. His idol suddenly becomes his skating coach and a lovely yaoi (M/M) romance follows!

 

Beyond the Boundary – Playstation VRV or Crunchyroll

I’ve just recently started watching BtB on the recommendation of a friend on twitter, and I’m glad I did. It’s a beautiful, intense anime with an interesting paranormal story. The characters all have secrets, which of course lead them into trouble, but there are plenty of humor moments, too! I don’t want to give too much away so I’ll just say: watch the first two episodes. The first one will just leave you with questions. 😀
