My mom read her first comic book yesterday (at least the first one I’ve ever seen her read!), and she loved it and asked me for the next part—actually, she was kind of frustrated that she had to wait until next month for Avenging Spider-Man #10. This is a woman who, although she has patiently put up with my Marvel babbling for years, has never once expressed interest in anything beyond the Spider-Man and Iron Man movies. She kept going on about how she thought Carol’s plane was a 172 (sorry if I have that wrong, Mom) and TFRs and this one time she forgot to call in her flight plan and was escorted down the Florida coast by the Air Force.
(Our relationship is characterized by a lot of mutual babbling.)
Anyway, she asked me to please save her a copy of Captain Marvel next week. Success!
