Fangirl Happy Hour, Episode #3 – “Too Perfect For Words”

This week on Fangirl Happy Hour, Ana and Renay read The Duchess War by Courtney Milan and do some light excavation of their romance reading pasts. Then, they look at book marketing, publicity, and how one person’s good marketing is another person’s wish for certain books to just go away already. Lastly, they read Captain Marvel Volume 1: Higher Further Faster More by Kelly Sue DeConnick and discuss their thoughts about Carol and cry over Marvel comics in general.
