Sex Criminals #2: Two Worlds One Cop
Sex Criminals Volume 2: Two Worlds, One Cop - Chip Zdarsky,Matt Fraction

Hmm. I absolutely adored the first volume, but this one was a bit flat for me. I still liked it, but I didn't love it. Perhaps part of what felt lacking is the contrast. The first volume is more fun and lively as our two heroes get to know one another and explore their powers. In this volume they've hit a slump, and I'm right there in the slump with them. If the first book is about giddy early relationship fire this one is about depression and stagnation, which...not super funny. I still love the art, really like the ideas, and dig how the characters break the fourth wall constantly. I'll absolutely be reading the next volume, especially given where this one leaves off, but going forward I'm hoping for a bit more comedy and a little less drama.

Reading progress update: I've read 85 out of 176 pages.
Jughead Vol. 1 - Chip Zdarsky,Erica Henderson

Pros: Juggie is asexual. I find that refreshing. I love seeing characters of all the rainbow.

 

Cons: the dream sequence things. That's really not doing it for me. 

 

But this is making me really wish my library would hurry up on my Archie request.

Peer Pressured into Heroism
Kaptara Volume 1 - Kagan McLeod,Chip Zdarsky

Kaptara is a broad satire in the Flash Gordon, human stranded on an alien world tries to become a hero, vein. Kaptara focuses it satire on old cartoons, with He-Man as its primary target. There are some funny bits, but the campiness of He-Man has been parodied many times, so nothing wildly original here. The main character is a decidedly unheroic gay scientist who drifts dangerously close to stereotype. Worth a quick read for the funny parts.

Loved this!
Star-Lord (2016-2017) #6 - Chip Zdarsky,Kris Anka

I especially loved Star-Lord's interaction with Rocket, and his questioning of why no one ever took the guns away from the murderous space raccoon.   In fact, I've love to see Chip Zdarsky write a Rocket series.   (I'm also looking forward to Zdarsky's Spider-Man in the FCBD issue; I'm going to download the Secret Empire issue just for that, to be honest.)

 

Zdarsky takes everything from his short run, ties it up nicely, and makes it, somehow, funny despite the dark circumstances.   He also starts to set up Duggan's All-New Guardians of the Galaxy, a series I'm already loving. 

 

The art is crisp, the colors perfect, and it all adds up to the perfect end to a run that is perfection with one exception: it was far too short.   I also am really into the whole 'in space' thing: like with the Royals, and Black Bolt, it's unlikely that the Guardians will have to deal with Secret Empire, at least immediately.  

 

Be glad that you're being encouraged to leave Earth, Quill.   Trust me, it's for the best.   You want no part of Earth right now  At least not Marvel-Earth :/

Yesssss!
Star-Lord (2016-) #5 - Chip Zdarsky,Kris Anka

Everything is going wrong: the bar, and the villains there, have been betrayed, Peter's old dude is an ex-robber who Daredevil's watching over just in case, and old dude's son has been kidnapped so that Black Cat can blackmail Star-Lord.   

 

Oh, yeah, Star-Lord is going to need help.  While old dude is completely on board with saving his son, that's the not kind of help I'm talking about.   Like superhero help, although most of them aren't even talking to Star-Lord. 

 

So he calls up everyone who's still talking to him, and willing to help him - two - and has to take down the person who runs crime in the city.   That's right.  It's Star-Lord against a city - and I'm loving every minute of this series.
