I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Unbelievable. I mean I do not believe this. The freakout Meg is having is so contrived, especially since it's about moving the CDs. So no one has ever moved anything that's been a constant in her life since she's moved into Lakeside? Even though Simon comes over to her apartment all the time?
Yeah, I don't buy it. I literally find it unbelievable.
I understand why it's happening, but that only makes this book seem super obvious instead of as nuanced as the last book.
Sighs. I kinda knew getting eager about Vision was going to prove to be a bad idea...
I am, sadly, excited because this has Vision in the title...
Let's hope that bodes better for this book than the last in this series.
I finally took this out of the library again and finished it. And I I still really, really hate Simon and even all the rest of the Others. Look, commit to being vicious or don't, but this 'we kinda are, kinda aren't' bullshit is bothering me.
And yes, I'm going to compare to Rocket again. When Yondu asks him if he's a professional asshole or what, Rocket's like, yeah, pretty much a pro. He's a d-hole, knows it, and owns it. And so while he is completely an asshole, he's pretty much a consistent asshole, funny, and I love him. Simon's so wishy washy and wishy washy to such a degree, I just wanted someone to slap some consistency into his character.
Which is a shame: the actual storyline moves along at a nice pace, it goes into the truly dark territory that I think is a hallmark of Bishop's work, and I think her storytelling just gets better and better. She does have a tendency to write vicious characters with hearts of gold, but they didn't feel as inconsistent in the Black Jewel world as in this one.
I got into the world and storyline, but the characters were, for the most part, so confusing due to their being written so inconsistently that I had a hard time connecting with any of them or finishing them.
Please, please let the next book be better since I took out the next two...
And it is fabulous. It's pretty much everything you'd expect, but just hilarious. Violent, angry, potty-mouthed... and he tries to ruin Christmas for everyone.
Love this author, this illustrator and this series!
Got this in a grab bag. Wasn't horrible. It just wasn't great. In fact, it pretty much made me feel like I was right to decide not to jump on the Marvel events.
Turns out Aspen can't do all that and keep her identity a secret. What happens to her now that the world knows who she is, what she is, and what she can do?
I'm hoping to find out, but I bought the first two issues on sale and apparently nothing past that...
Aspen Matthews is one of the Blue, a race of humans who live under the water. Except, she's been raised on the surface world, and continues to live in our world, acting as a liaison between the two worlds when possible.
When she finds a member of the Blue, deep under water, and seemingly trapped, she lets him out before she can find out any more about him.
Turns out he wants to burn everything in his path, and hey, they're on the surface. Can Aspen fight off the evil, stay off Twitter, and keep her identity a secret?
I basically bought this to heal my heart because the TF universe has been imploded. But at least you'll have this, I told myself, but I'm not sure it's worth it. Oh, I'm invested, and I'll finish up this five issue mini-series, but I'm not sure that it was worth it. It's animated in the ST animated style, but has Windblade. My guess is IDW TF, mashed up with ST Animated TOS.
It's an okay story, but nothing that's super impressing me yet. I hope this steps up its game in the next couple of issues!
It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a Christmas story, but that's alright: I choose to buy and read this, because I love these characters.
I love how much Lunella cares so much for her friends in this issue. It was just really nice to see how much she'll sacrifice for them, because they mean that much to her.
Again, continues to be warm and funny, and I can see why Scholastic does so well with the graphic novels. (Which is the saving grace for this series for those asking why this was still going. It doesn't sell well enough month by month but does sell well in graphic novel format.)
And I love, love, love it. So much fun. Moon Girl continues to be a charming mixture of exasperated by a world who doesn't understand her, and determined to do good for everyone around her anyway.
It had a foil cover, and I loved it.
But I figured what's the point if I don't read it, and I'd forgotten how good this series was. It's as charming and funny as the main character, and the other Hawkeye isn't too shabby either. I think I like the female Hawkeye a little more at this point, but she's got an unfair advantage: this series is amazing.
And more twisted than ever! Love, love, love this series so much I can't even tell you, especially as McGuire re-invents Mary Jane, the Green Goblin, and punches you in the gut while she she does it.
Seanan McGuire writes Spider-Gwen. And it only gets better from there: alternate universes, Spider-Ham, and just general messed-up plot lines and so much humor. Warm series despite it potentially not sounding that way, and I think this will be a favorite!
