I don't even know how to write this review
God Hates Astronauts Vol. 1 - Ryan Browne,Ryan Browne

This is batshit.   Crazytown bananpants.   

 

Like I have no clue what to say except that this is hilarious and just what I needed; I'm still unsure of what to read now because nothing is working for me, but this?   This did.  

 

It's hilarious and brilliant, and I didn't have to think too hard, I just had to sit back, read, and have fun.

CatStronauts: Mission Moon (graphic novel) by Drew Brockington
CatStronauts: Mission Moon - Drew Brockington

Energy consumption is too high, and in only 60 more days the world is due to run too low on  power to keep everything going. The World’s Best Scientist’s coolest plan is to build a solar power plant on the surface of the moon, because it will always be exposed to the sun. Major Meowser (the leader), Waffles (the pilot), Blanket (the technician), and Pom Pom (the scientist) are called together and tasked with training for and completing the mission.

I bought this as a birthday present for my niece, along with the sequel, CatStronauts: Race to Mars. It was cute, although I had some problems with it, mostly due to my being unable to make my brain shut up about the internal logic issues. For some reason I could accept that the cats' spaceship came out of a giant box and included instructions, and yet it bugged me that a power blackout during the day could cause complete darkness, and that Waffles was able to eat a sandwich through his spacesuit helmet.

Blanket was probably my favorite CatStronaut - I particularly enjoyed Blanket’s love for his little robot friend. Waffles was probably my second favorite. It made me smile to see that Waffles and Blanket had such similar levels of affection for completely different things.

My few issues with it aside, this was a nice little volume, and my niece enjoyed looking at the cats. I haven’t heard from her yet about whether she liked the story.

Science fiction b&w comic collection - not bad but not brilliant
Astronauts in Trouble - Matt Smith,Larry Young,Charles Adlard

Containing all 3 story arcs, this black-and-white collection is simply illustrated. The first story deals with a TV news team treading where they shouldn't as they explore a story about space travel in the late 1950s with dramatic consequences. The second arc is set in a more modern era, present day, and deals with an entrepreneur's quest to go to the Moon and the news crew from the first arc end up accompanying him. The third arc set further into the future in a bar on the Moon has locals telling tales about events connected to the two previous arcs.

 

The language is full of slang so, if English isn't your first language (particularly US English), this may prove to be challenging. The black-and-white illustrations didn't work for me as they were not detailed enough: I'm too old-fashioned and like colour and detail!
