    Black Nerd Problems - Omar Holmon Nov 30, 2017

    This issue is a great look at the endgame and an orphaned America Chavez not only gaining her Abuela / Grandmother but seeing her group of friends forming a family for her as well. There's a long game being played that's only adding more to the lore and fandom of America Chavez. Read Full Review

    America isn't a perfect book by any means but it's got a lot of heart and character. The art alone is worth giving this comic a read. Read Full Review

    I thought the art had gotten an upgrade, and in some parts it did, but deteriorated quickly.

    And so... plot convience re: the cuffs... eh? boring. Also, I swear the villain is the only WHITE person in the whole university. In any case, America waits to break her cuffs for maximum audience effect -- in any case, it motivates a ragtag bunch of marysues to fight against the baddies, whoever they are -- also, the professor lives like an ewok; oh yeah and prodigy is a creep that is spying on everyone with cameras he installed himself all over the place...

    Oh yeah, did I mention part of Exterminatrix' plan is to mass produce robot versions of America? And that the fate of Sotomayor U rests in the hand of the more

    Added this one to my pull list due to getting all Marvel lenticulars from my comic shop, so I started with #8. In my opinion, the last issue was really good in terms of story and illustration, but this one fell a bit flat for me. The writing was fine, but I really didn't care for the art in this issue.

    As the Exterminatrix goes overt with her plans to weaponize America and ruin Sotomayor U, the supporting cast goes to war with her. And America? Here's a comprehensive list of what she does in issue #9 of the comic named after her:

    1. Fails to escape from the Exterminatrix.

    2. Runs away after getting freed by her witchy professor.

    3. Curls up in a fetal ball while her supporting cast (AKA the characters we *really* don't care about) starts saving the day.


    Flaviano's earnest but not wholly successful artwork and the fundamental strength of the Exterminatrix as a classic scenery-chewing baddy save this from being a total trainwreck. Wow, is it ever not a good comic, though.

    This comic just sucks. There's no other way to put it. It's atrociously written and the art is poor. I wish this wasn't the case since America Chavez is a good character, but Gabby Rivera cannot write for her... Or really any character. I can't believe this has lasted 9 issues and is getting a 10th. Or why it's a hit with the critics. This comic is the worst thing coming out from either of the big two and Marvel should be ashamed for it.
