    This might be issue that will bring you on board if you've been skeptical of America's solo outing so far. Read Full Review

    Joe Quinones and Stacy Lee were on art and kept the outfits and America's kicks looking fresh to death. I am really enjoying their designs for Chavez as well as her friends. America is a bright and colorful journey for America Chavez as she navigates through the storm of relationships, college cliques, and stunting on everybody with her superior dress game.

    While still packing the same day-glo-colored punch with the art, America #3 is still a solid read, though a bit more scattered than I would like. Read Full Review

    I just... Ugh. I really, REALLY want to like "America," but it tries waaaaaay too hard. The story is all over the place and can't find the proper balance between lighthearted fun and emotional resonance. There's so much happening all at once yet I just can't make myself care. First of all, why is Storm there? Why is she suddenly best buddies with America? Why must America travel to the past and meet Storm in order to resolve her relationship with the girlfriend who dumped her? What was that cringefest of a subplot with Storm's safe word?! Second offender: trying so damn hard to connect America to Latino culture. We're basically told that even though she's an alien from a parallel universe, she's totes Latina, and not just, like, Puerto Rican, but all Latin countries at once, guys, and here's some name-dropping of Puerto Rican and Colombian cultural elements to make it sounds legit. So yeah. Love what they're trying to do with the character in this series, but the writing's just not up to snuff. No me gusta.

    Did Gabby Rivera self-insert into comic again? Bleargh.

    Some of the dialogue continues to be super cringy as well, but less so than previous times, and I'm not talking about the random spanish words peppered here and there.

    I'm multilingual, with being fluent in spanish as well as in english (among other languages), and I happen to live in a community with a huge latino population, but they don't speak like America does -- granted, in this case it's Mexicans vs Puerto Ricans -- so maybe Puerto Rican communities in NYC do speak like this, in which case, I cannot particularly blame this comic for this, but I feel like it's worth pointing out.

    But now I'm curious, since America seems to say that she might not be Puerto Rican, she just identifies as one because they look like her? Does that mean she's basically Rachel Dolezal?

    I didn't know it was possible, but this comic broke me.
