I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Neither Steven, nor the Gems, are afraid of fighting for themselves or the good of others, or life in general, this issue proves once again that fighting isn't their first choice. Nor does it always win the day: compassion, understanding, and love save everyone. As Steven starts to understand the motivation of the 'Glass Ghost' he begins to understand how he can help not only his friends, but the Ghost itself as well.
It was so lovely and kind that I kind of teared up a little.
And to think I was wary of this show at first. I'd watched Adventure Time and found it mindless in a way that grated on my nerves. I assumed Steven Universe was like that, but my sister told me no, that it was great. I gave it a try and ended up loving it, and snapping up these comics on sale. So glad I did now!
