You may know that I’ve been reading quite a lot of comics lately, and today I wanted to talk to you guys about another favourite that deserves more love (obviously all my favourites deserve more love but ssh), namely: Goldie Vance
Goldie Vance is about a teenage detective solving, well, mysteries obviously. It takes place during the sixties and is just a lot of fun. So why should you read it?
💛 First of all, because it’s about a black queer female teenage detective!!
💛 Goldie is such a fun character
💛 All characters are so colourful and unique
💛 Goldie has a cute girlfriend!!!
💛 It’s a fun read
💛 It takes place during the 60’s yet has a diverse cast
💛 Girls who race!!!
💛 Girls who work on cars!!!
💛 Girls who love cars!!!
💛 Lot’s of girl power and girls supporting girls
💛 There’s more to the mean girl than meets the eye (which honestly is one of my favourite tropes I can’t help it I’m such a sucker for it – maybe because ‘the mean girl’ is a far more used trope??)
💛 It’s funny and just delightful???
💛 THE ART. LOOK AT IT. IT’S SO CUTE AND COLOURFUL
💛 And the clothes omg I love the clothes
💛 Positive parental figures and positive relationships with their children
💛 Good mysteries!
💛 Basically: read it??
I hope my fangirling was useful to you and convinced you to read it haha. Do you know any similar comics or books (besides Nancy Drew) that you’d recommend? Have you read Goldie Vance? Let me know in the comments!
