The Door Into Fire (The Tale of the Five #1) by Diane Duane
The Door Into Fire - Diane Duane

Sex. Drugs. And Rock... Color Purple. Very 70-ies.


What. A. Drag. 

Never a straight (no pun) line in this book. I don't mind when a story gets from A to D via B, C and while at it detours through E and K. I do mind however, when the author goes through entire alphabet to connect A to B. Now imagine that alphabet being intense purple. It frigging haunts me in my sleep now.

One star.

And no, DD was not the one and only writing and publishing queer literature prior to 2001. No credit for that. Sorry, not sorry.

 

PS And what's with the cover? O.o

Yes!
Giant-Size Little Marvel: AvX (2015) #4 (Giant-Size Little Marvel- AvX (2015)) - Skottie Young,Skottie Young

The Guardians of the Galaxy and the Inhumans get involved as the fight over the twins spills over to everyone. 

 

Funny, charming, just gorgeous art - pencils, inks, colors, everything - this is a perfect mini-series.  I need to remember I own this on Comixology whenever I need to cheer myself up.   Love, love, love!

Cute, funny, and that combined with the bright colors - think the cover, but for a whole comic - make me smile and forget all my anxiety.

Post series one-shot
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #6 - Matthew K. Manning,Jon Sommariva

And it's a lot of fun, especially as Robin has changed: it's a new Robin to the Turtles, and they can't seem to get over that fact!   I laughed out loud a couple times, but overall, this is the same as the rest of the series: the art isn't good enough to warren the last of the five stars, and it's fun, but not a favorite of mine.  

 

It was nice catching up with the Gotham crew later and seeing how they evolved, and how the newbie reacted to the giant turtle-men.   So I'd give it a reread, but probably not in the next couple of years.

End to this mini-series
Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Adventures #5 - Matthew Manning,Jon Sommariva

Issue six is an epilogue: it takes place after, it takes place in Gotham rather than the in the Turtles' universe, and it takes place a good deal while after from what I can tell.   Still, this issue, five, ends up wrapping up the portal storyline with a twist.  

 

It's fun, it used a character I didn't expect to be the brains behind this operation, and I liked it enough to reread in the future even if it's not a complete favorite mini-series, or crossover.
