Reading progress update: I've read 30%.
Star Wars: Poe Dameron Vol. 2: The Gathering Storm (Star Wars (Marvel)) - Charles Soule,Phil Noto

Oh, so much better than the first volume! If still... Sighs. Star Wars has a problem, and it sort of always has, but I've never noticed it the way I have with recent books and other media. And that's the fascination with the "true believer" Imperial. And I'm just not interested in how cool a fucking fascist they are. There's a difference between a good villain, and one I'm supposed to drool over. But the story's moving better, and I like Threepio's involvement, even if he seems a bit out of character.

Book Theme Song

(this link will take you to my tumblr post with video)

Everywhere by Fleetwood Mac  --I found this by searching the word everywhere…seriously though this video is crazy and Idk…it reminded me of the book, with the tricorns it looked liked some kind of tropical port for pirate ships to dock.  Kind of crazy, kind of confusing…kind of something♫

 

 

 

⇝OVERALL RATING⇜

2/5 STARS

My Thoughts

 

The concept of time-travel in this story is genius, but to pull it off, you need to do more than just say "it happened."  I feel like it was never explained well enough for me to believe.  The characters were mostly unlikable and Nyxia, despite loving her name, was just a fickle girl who didn't know what she wanted from one minute to the next.  The only character I found remotely interesting is Kash. 

 

 

As for the narration, I'm beginning to think I don't really care for Kim Mai Guest as a narrator, her voice is too bland sounding to hold my attention.  She's fine in an ensemble cast of characters (like One Of Us Is Lying), but on her own, not so much…as least for me.  I couldn't keep my mind in the story, and I almost DNF'd this more than once.

 

 

Ratings Breakdown

 

Plot:  2/5

Main Characters:  2.8/5

Secondary Characters:  2/5

The Feels:  1/5

Addictiveness:  1/5

Theme or Tone:  2/5

Flow (Writing Style):  2.5/5

Backdrop (World Building):  1/5

Book Cover:  5/5  This cover rocks...if only...

Narration:  3/5

Ending:  3/5  Cliffhanger:  to be continued...

 

Will I continue this series?  Not likely.

Community Service
Star-Lord (2016-) #2 - Chip Zdarsky,Kris Anka

After getting shitfaced with Old Man Logan, Star-Lord finds himself in a bar fight - and then legal trouble.   Matt Murdock prosecutes and Agent Brand intervenes, proclaiming Star-Lord a hero.   He loses his elemental gun, and is sentenced to community service as well as given a fine.   He ends up with a program that helps the elderly get out, and is stuck with an old, black man who just wants to stay in his damn apartment, thank you very much.  

 

Also, getting a job at the bar where the old man's son works, and trying to stop a robbery while Ms. Marvel yells at him. 

 

Also, is completely obvious to the smitten women who stare at his ass, or the ass shots, while he pines over Kitty. 

 

This is charming, and while not particularly dirty, it does tend to get Star-Lord out of his shirts - a lot.   It completely sexually objectives him, and yet the storylines go about, unimpeded, and as oblivious as Peter Quill is to the way he's eye-fucked.   All the time.   The storylines are somewhat innocent, especially in this issue as Peter tries to charm an old dude into enjoying outside time.   It's about him trying to make a connection and persevering even when it seems impossible, because he needs those hundred hours of community service!

 

Basically, there's this dirty aspect and innocent aspect, and they definitely work together: it's simply part of the charm of this whole series.   Ah, if only it were longer than six issues!
