Moon Girl and Dr. Strange
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #39 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

And it's super adorable.   They're fighting off Nightmare and Bad Dream and all those mystical folks who are disrupting everyone's sleep.  As always, this is an all-ages fun title - and that includes folks who are older like me, and who like both lighter and darker fare, so long as it's done well. 

 

This is light, fun, and done incredibly well, from the storytelling that finds ways to do these light, kid-friendly stories month after month without getting old, or the art that is, once again, very comic book style, but very well done.   And I keep bringing this up: there is, in American comics at least, a very standard style.   (Then again, Japan has manga.   And there are differences between artists, but even they tend to stick with a standard style.   And it's not really a bad thing.  I admit my favorite artists tend to stray from he style, or try something new, because they stick out in my mind, but I have some favorites - Michael Turner, or Chris Bachalo, or Brendan Cahill* - who do don't do it either.   What I'm trying to say is: standard style or not, I like it when the art is done well as it is in many of my favorite series.

 

*I own two Cahill originals, from Lost Light and Robots in Disguise, two Transformers series.   They are the TF pieces that resonate the most with me, and he became a favorite when I saw the art in person.   So, yeah, sometimes it's that...

Start of a new storyline
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #38 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

Something is going wrong with everyone; they're not able to sleep and Moon Girl is suspicious.   Everyone is miserable, with very little energy, around her.   

 

It's still the same charming series it's always been, and the storylines are always quirky and original, although this series always remains appropriate for children and engaging enough for adults. 

 

Still a favorite series.

Charming Christmas story
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #37 - Brandon Montclare,Gustavo Duarte,Natacha Bustos

It doesn't pretend to be anything other than a Christmas story, but that's alright: I choose to buy and read this, because I love these characters. 

 

I love how much Lunella cares so much for her friends in this issue.   It was just really nice to see how much she'll sacrifice for them, because they mean that much to her.

Fun!
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #36 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

Again, continues to be warm and funny, and I can see why Scholastic does so well with the graphic novels.   (Which is the saving grace for this series for those asking why this was still going.   It doesn't sell well enough month by month but does sell well in graphic novel format.)

This continues to be charming, heartwarming, and fantastic
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #35 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

And I love, love, love it.   So much fun.  Moon Girl continues to be a charming mixture of exasperated by a world who doesn't understand her, and determined to do good for everyone around her anyway.
