Walking Dead Volume 30: Things Get Interesting
The Walking Dead, Vol. 30: New World Order - 'Robert Kirkman',Stefano Gaudiano,Cliff Rathburn,Charlie Adlard

 

In Volume 30, Eugene and a small contingent from his (and Rick's) community reach a contingent from the community of Stephanie--the person on the other end of the radio communications Eugene has been engaged in for a while.  Understandably, both groups are wary, and long-time readers can appreciate the risks inherent whenever the the characters encounter new groups.

 

I don't want to give away any surprises, but there is a doozy of a surprise awaiting one of the core characters, at the community Stephanie belongs to.  There is a big "Wow" moment.  It soon becomes clear that this large, complex community operates under a fundamental philosophy that is quite different from that of Rick and and his neighbors.  

 

Will those differences lead to more conflict, or is mutual benefit in the characters' not-too-distant future?  We will have to look to volume 31 and beyond to find out.

Got this for the Dinosaur
Invincible #91 - Ryan Ottley,Cliff Rathburn,Robert Kirkman

It was actually a dude who turns into a dinosaur, but I got it on sale.   And it's all in the middle of a story and suddenly there are brothers and new teammates and stuff I have no idea about so why did I do this?

 

Because dinosaur.   

 

It was a good story, although a little more serious than I'm used to from this series.   It also felt very comfortable this way, so I can only assume there was a slow shift somewhere.  Or maybe it just got more serious for a while and that's okay, too. 

 

I just really liked this because it was light - and I was hoping for something light after The Maxx.   It didn't quite hit that sweet spot for me - although, y'know, I'm eyeing The Invisibles and Hellblazer, so where exactly did the light go? - and I'm really confused about some things. 

 

It was, however, on sale.   And I liked it well enough, just not enough for it to be a five star favorite.   This was a little too convoluted, real life serious and that's not what was so charming about the beginning: yes, it was real life.  In that superheroes had jobs.   It didn't go into great detail about cheating and the angst that causes.   It was light and goofy fun.   I'm not sure this series is that anymore, but I also like that it's evolved.   I'd probably like it a lot better if I filled in the in between type knowledge, though.
