Short stories
Riverdale Vol. 1 - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,Alitha Martinez,Joe Eisma

Short stories that take place before and during the first season of Riverdale.   Mostly they focus on one character, although some are a couple or duo, and then they conclude with the first issue of the New Riverdale Archie by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. 

 

Fun, but one star lost because the stories were too short and too one-dimensional for me to truly engage with this world or these characters.

You get a lazier review
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #26 - Alitha Martinez,Natacha Bustos,Brandon Montclare

Because my dad thought it was a good idea to walk me up and down stairs and I got super dizzy, so there's that. 

 

Love this comic, love this time.   No cap, either!  Just Galactus giving a message to Lunella, who is told of a greater danger that she needs to stop.  

 

Still miss Devil but I hope he'll come back soon!

The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes #2) by Angel Martinez Review
The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes Book 2) - Angel Martinez

Relationship and communication issues plague Officer Vikash Soren, but those are nothing compared to facing stick-throwing tumbleweeds, pill bugs and…time travel?

Vikash Soren, the perfect police officer except for his odd paranormal ability, never seems to lose his temper. Always serene and competent, he’s taken on the role of mediator in a squad room full of misfits. But on the inside, he’s a mess. Unable to tell his police partner that he loves him, Vikash struggles silently, terrified of losing Kyle as a lover, partner and friend.

 

But life in the 77th Precinct doesn’t leave much room for internal reflection. A confrontation with a stick-throwing tumbleweed in Fairmount Park leads to bizarre consequences involving pill bugs, statues and…time travel? If Vikash manages to survive the week and stay in one point in time, he might be able to address normal things like relationship problems. He just needs Kyle to have a little more patience. Maybe a few centuries’ worth.

 

Review

 

This is the second book in the Off Beat Crimes series and the world and characters are great.

 

Kash and Kyle from the first book are on the case. Being closeted at work is taking a toll on their relationship and they have a case to solve.

 

I liked all the adventure elements and the emotionial struggles of Kash's character.

It was a fun read with a nice romance and HEA.

My Review of Forge: Dawn of Trials
Forge: Dawn of Trials (The Chronicles of Tov: Forge Book 1) - Chan Martinez,James C. Cobb

Forge: Dawn of Trials by C S Cobb is a coming of age story of Forge and his rite of passage ritual in the Cave of Trials.

 

This story has potential, but the execution left a lot to be desired. I felt as though the author was writing to middle grade children for several chapters, then suddenly writing to very young children, then back to middle grade kids. The tone of the writing was very inconsistent. The characters could have been better fleshed out. There were several grammatical errors, which interfered with my reading flow. There is a bit of a cliff-hanger, which wasn't too bad since the author gave clues that there would be such an ending. Overall, I feel this book is geared towards children 9-12.
