Kim and Kim writer does Transformers versus magic
Transformers vs. The Visionaries #2 - Magdalene Visaggio,Fico Ossio

And I love it.   It's a lot of internal politics, and a lot of distrust.   But it makes it dramatic, especially with last month's ending.   (Which I won't spoil for Jessica, but you should totally catch up on this.)

 

It's Transformers.   Versus Visionaries.   Which apparently is a thing that existed?   I don't know.   I bought this for Transformers, with a major bonus of Kim and Kim writer.   (Yeah, guess what, I liked Kim and Kim enough to keep saying it, because I would recommend that series very, very much.)   But pretty much I was going to buy and read a TF comic by IDW (that isn't Bayverse) no matter who wrote it.   

 

And IDW doesn't let me down.  It never does.   It's a great series, and it adds a lot to the post-Revolution Transformers mythology.   Love!

VBT, GUEST POST & #GIVEAWAY - To Entice an Earl (Entangled Nobility #3) by Naomi Boom
To Entice an Earl - Naomi Boom
Miss Alexandra Farris lost her heart to her older brother's friend, Lord Maxon Collins, long, long ago. Despite her girlhood attempts to win him, he never noticed her. Now that her first season is underway, she understands why. He prefers willowy blondes, not curvaceous maidens with darker coloring like herself. Rather than wallow in self-pity, she forgets love and focuses on something more attainable—an advantageous match.
 
Lord Collins is plagued by an uncomfortable feeling whenever he goes near Miss Farris. One of annoyance. And yet, he can’t seem to stop thinking of her, touching her, kissing her...He must act in her brother’s stead, which means he has to approve her suitor and ensure her safety. Unfortunately, he can’t seem to find a worthy gentleman.
 
Wedding her off should be a simple task, but not if he can’t let her go.

Girl gang
Curb Stomp - Ryan Ferrier,Devaki Neogi Kiran

A girl gang is caught between two competing gangs and the government who wants to gentrify.   While the other two gangs peddle drugs, and weapons, the girls simply life in an incredibly poor neighborhood, and act as a more violent version of the neighborhood watch, as anything less wouldn't deter the crime and violence against the people living in their neighborhood. 

 

And while this feels like an important story, I had a hard time getting through this.   I didn't feel all that compelled by the way the storyline played out, or that into any of the characters, so this fell flat for me.

Liked this better than volume one and less than volume two
Steed and Mrs. Peel Vol. 3 (Steed and Mrs. Peel: Ongoing) - Yasmin Liang,Caleb Monroe

The banter is still lacking, but the storyline engaged me more, especially the Cartneys and how the son and daughter fit into the Hellfire club.

 

I'd read more of this, but it looks like  I got the whole run in Humble Bundle.   There was a new author for each volume, either by plan, or because the series had trouble keeping authors.   If the latter, I can see that playing into why this didn't last longer, that and sales.  (I'm guessing that not that many people bought this, because you need to find Avengers fans who buy comics, and I'm not sure how much overlap there is, especially given that a lot of people still look down on comics in general.  So you're looking at an older generation that hasn't really come to terms with comics as being literary, or even of that possibility existing.)

Lovely
Steed and Mrs. Peel Vol. 2 (Steed and Mrs. Peel: Ongoing) - Yasmin Liang,Caleb Monroe

Not quite as good as the first volume: the banter didn't do it for me as much, and the plots didn't feel quite as odd as the plots in the original series did, but overall a pleasant read, and a decent follow up to volume one.
