Why do I even bother?
Royals (2017-) #6 - Kevin Libranda,Al Ewing,Sanford Greene

Ewing is okay sometimes, but of course he's going to bring Black Bolt's wives back in because that wasn't weird enough the first time around. 

 

Black Bolt?   So much better than this series.   But I expect they'll converge at some point and I'm too into the Inhumans in Spaaaaace concept to give up on this yet.   Also, I have at least a couple issues I already bought that are unreturnable.   

 

Also, this would be way better with pig-muppets in my opinion.

Brutal tale about fascism
The Punisher (2016-) #219 - Guiu Villanova,Matt Rosenberg,Clayton Crain

This feels timely, and also like old-school Punisher.   When baby Nick Fury needs someone to clean up  a mess he made in Chernaya, he turns to Frank Castle, luring him with the promise of killing soldiers who take - and follow - orders to murder children.   In fact, Fury gives him the opportunity to go after the man giving the orders. 

 

And the War Machine armor.    

 

It gets as brutal as you'd expect.   Hyperviolent, and yet the people doing these things are such bastards that when Frank declares that he wants to let them burn, I couldn't help but cheer him on.   

 

And when they kill an old farmer that Frank had been protecting?    Well, his plan is to go after their 'glorious leader' and kill him - and good for him!  I was really worried about the new team, and now?   Now I'm just beyond thrilled.

So, this new team...
The Punisher (2016-) #218 - Guiu Vilanova,Matthew T. Rosenberg,Clayton Crain

Me before reading: I wonder if the stories lines will be just as messed up and fun in their own way. 

 

Me after reading:  Punisher.  In a War Machine suit.   The best thing to happen to me today, by far.   

 

Stopping writing, starting reading the next one.   Right now.   Because so much yes.

Astounding ending
Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #5 - Alex Milne,Christos Gage,John Barber

This is an ending.   In fact, it says so at the end: many times comics have a 'the end' panel, and this one does.   When they want to tease a possible sequel it's 'the end?'   This one is just 'the end'.   (That doesn't mean that there never will be a sequel, just that one isn't planned, even in a hinting, teasing phase, right now.  As far as I understand things anyway!)

 

Stardrive is disillusioned with both the Cybertronians and the Space Knights.   She's starting to discover who she really is, and that includes scraps with the Space Knights and realizing that Rom could have done more to stand up for her in the first place. 

 

I think the ending is perfect: Stardrive needs time alone, and the Autobots and Space Knights need to really think about what they do, how, and who they trust.   The Decepticons and the Dire Wraiths, though?  Those two are made for each other, if only they wouldn't beat each other into a bloody or oily puddle vying for power...

 

Love, love, love.   But I'm enjoying reading more than writing reviews now, so...

Yes!
Rom vs. Transformers: Shining Armor #4 - Alex Milne,Christos Gage,John Barber

I thought this was going to be a four part mini-series, and then I got part five.  Um, yes!   This gets back to down-and-dirty, furthering the Space Knights and the Autobots, and then bringing them close together. 

 

Will Ultra Magnus sacrifice himself?   And if so, will the Space Knights honor that sacrifice, or will they destroy half a planet?   

 

All to be revealed in issue five.
