I'm a well read technosexual who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Illa, the girl-who-is-a-moon, and daughter of Ego the Living Planet wants one thing: not to be alone. She would, in fact, like to speak to her father, a father who doesn't seem to know what to say or do with her, other than watch her and watch over her.
But she's both a moon and child. She needs contact with somebody and in particular with her parents. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur try to figure out what's going on with Ego and to help them connect.
There's a new artist, and I like him a lot more - particularly how he draws Vision. It's also fun to see the Champions and Avengers team up, especially since with Mrs. Marvel leading the Champions and her working with her old team? There's a lot of tension and conflict when Falcon starts handing down orders to them all.
Love the conflict with Vision and Viv and how that's treated, not with delicacy but there's no time for that right now. I have no doubt it will be dealt with in the next Champions - the one that's going to continue this storyline - or in the follow ups. I'm looking forward to that.
And yeah, seeing Vision and Viv fight together is especially fun for me.
Somehow this perfect series gets better, more horrifying, and yet throughout that more heartwarming as well. Perfect ending!
I kinda not-so-secretly love it when they call Black Bolt The Midnight King. Now you all now and it's really not a secret.
Horrific storyline, with grotesque revelations, but this is hauntingly told, lushly illustrated, and just the perfect book, a book that Black Bolt deserves. Favorite character, author, illustrator, and book.
Love, love, love.
I love everything about this and wish I had time to write a longer review, but I can't. I want to read the next issue and catch up with comics since I only have one day a week that I really allow myself to read right now. I can only afford Friday's at this point, so it's going to have to be a very short review. This series is absolutely a fantastic place to start reading about the Inhumans: it explains what it needs to in story, without feeling like an info dump, and it's pretty much a stand alone story. A newbie to this fandom would do well starting with this series, in face.
The singularity storyline is almost wrapped up and I see the next issue is the finale; this makes sense. The alternate Cyborg is so bitter because of one traumatic instance, and while his turn-around seems a bit abrupt, I can see it since it's hinges on one person: a person Cyborg knows and can save with his alternate self's help.
There's enough with Blue, or the avatar of someone who looks like Blue, to make me wonder what's going to happen and want to read on, but I can also see a nice clean ending to this storyline in the works.
Fun alternate storyline that makes sense, and has enough conflict to keep this storyline interesting, enough new ideas to keep this fresh. Looking forward to the next issue.
Love what DC is doing with the mother boxes, the singularity, AI, and it's a breath of fresh air to see a doppleganger/hero gone bad without it being tied to nazis.
So much fun!
It's post SE, but mentions all of it directly and is direct aftermath so another one half star review.
And it ruined everything. So glad I didn't pay ten dollars for this. Secret Empire and everything tied into that, tied directly into that, will get one half star reviews. Forever.
I was unwilling to pay $10 for a comic - even an eighty page comic - when Marvel was running Secret Empire with Nazi!Cap. Instead, I bought this for one buck on sale at Comixology. Whoo!
Duggan's just nailing it for me. Midgard's red clown is making me laugh.
My sister made me a blanket from one of these pieces of art:
It's in acrylic, oh-so-warm and so much fun. I love it with all my heart. I use it all the time. Or I have constantly since she finished it two days ago...
I can't find it and don't have it on hand. It's friggin' hilarious, especially when Whovians who are librarians try to explain to librarians who aren't Whovians. And if they are anything like me, they live for this shit: getting to explain our fandoms in great detail without being told to stop? Oh, yes!
Anyway, it's fun, it's less than three bucks on store envy, and you'll probably only get it if you're a librarian - but it's still fun. It's all stuff that happened on AUTOCAT, though, so not original stuff. Freedman did get permission from everyone, or else made sure they were anonymous - when they didn't get back to her. It's still fun and it was required reading and worth the purchase not to have to go to the library and to read it at my own leisure. Fun, and worth the look if you're into that kinda thing. Fandom and cataloguing, it turns out, are two of my favorite things, so there ya go.
Ugh, I've read so little that's not a dry text book for school. I actually did read something amusing yesterday, but I have to look into adding a zine if I can't find it on Amazon to add here.
So I forgot about that. Anyway, I'm going to get some food after this: I'm feeling a little down and stressed today so I'm taking a mental health day and relaxing. I kinda want someone to make food for me, something nice and warm, and the place that makes rice bowls, bread bowls, and salad bowls closes soon. I'll end up going to library and eating there while I read. Which is allowed, yay!
And I need to take a picture of my blanket that I'm reading under, but I don't have my phone on me, so later. For now, this book. It's all about Scott Summers who I find boring and just groan when I find out I'm reading all about him.
Except, this book goes into why he's like that, mostly by using the Psycho Pirate to take that stick out of his ass. And he's kinda fun when he's not acting like a ninety-year-old dude. Sorry to see him go, but this was a touching, empathetic look at why he's like he is, and it means I'll cut him some slack from now on, for real. Or I'll try to remember to, at least.
It's also touching to see the rest of the group understand and stick up for him. Lovely little comic here.
