Another weird 25 cent issue
Invincible #133 - Robert Kirkman,Ryan Ottley,Jean-Francois Beaulieu

I hadn't realized things like people had kids now.   Huh. 

 

So lost.   So want to catch up with this series now. 

 

So, so lost :/

 

Basically, this was excellent and would have gotten five stars if I had any &%$#ing clue what was going on right now.   So read this, just not before you read things that come before.   Especially not if you read earlier work, then skipped ahead like seventy five issues to this...

Odd issue to give away at twenty five cents....
Outcast By Kirkman & Azaceta #25 - Robert Kirkman,Paul Azaceta,Elizabeth Breitweiser

At least in some ways.  I get that Image was not only trying to celebrate 25 years of publishing, but it was also trying to reward loyal fans with inexpensive episodes that tied into the anniversary.   But it would be foolish to say they didn't want to entice new fans, especially since they advertised this so heavily on Comixology, both for the anniversary itself, and specifically for a couple of the twenty five cents issues. 

 

Which is odd since apparently they just randomly choose some popular writers/series, and went, 'okay, this issue!'  I was so lost!   I had no clue what was going on and quite frankly, I'd suspect as a marketing tactic, this issue would give, at the very least, a 'here's what happened' page. 

 

Ah, well, I won't make this series a priority.   Don't get me wrong.   Freaky things happened and I'm interested in the storyline, but this wasn't a good introductory point.   The important things - I think - weren't that important to me because I was too busy trying to keep up.   I wanted to care, but the end result was that I didn't as much as I'd hoped to.   Bizarre that they wouldn't tell the authors to at least have a bit to accommodate new readers, or choose different - perhaps even new - series to spotlight with these prices!

 

Ah, well, Image, I still have Spawn!

Continues to be a yes, please!
Spawn #268 - Todd McFarlane,Todd McFarlane
The vendetta against those pushing drugs continues!   And again, loving it.   It’s the best things - or maybe just the things I loved most - about the early Spawn, although it doesn’t forget everything the series has put Al, or his hellsuit, through. 
 
I hope this series continues on its violent rampage, to be honest.  I mean, it’s why I came to this series in the first place.

YES!
Spawn #267 - Todd McFarlane,Todd McFarlane,Szymon Kudranski,FCO Plascencia
Ah, we’re getting somewhere here!   Cyan is a drug addicted teenager and her father calls in Al Simmons for help.    Since Cyan is Wanda’s daughter, Al considers Cyan as good as family.   And things get personal.   The issues with his suit seem to be slightly less of a problem, or maybe he just doesn’t care if it’s more dangerous when it comes to Cyan’s safety.   I suspect the latter, which makes me love him more as a character.  
 
He also knows he’s not at full strength, so at least he’s not being delusional about how strong he is.  
 
This isi dark and gritty.  I described it as Punisher with a hellsuit to a friend.   And I’m loving it for that.

I continue to love this series
Spawn #265 - Todd McFarlane,Erik Larsen

There's this feeling that it's still treading water, which is why it's not a five star.  I want this storyline to finally come to a conclusion.   I mean, they've had an overarching storyline that's gone on for over two hundred and fifty issues.   That's crazy town banana pants.   

 

I want a real resolution. 

 

I'll take the mini arcs - that do come to some kind of conclusions - but...

 

It's fun, and it's got a female herione called The Ant, who I think is some kind of Ant-Man type?   I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't be surprised.   McFarlane created something new with Spawn, but he took a lot of sensibilities from Marvel.   Spawn, the costume, is very much like Venom in a lot of ways.  

 

That being said, this also feels very original.  I'm glad for the nostalgia factors, without this seeming like a rip-off or so similar that it bores me.   It's fun seeing Simmons deal with the aftermath of Wanda's death and God's revelations.   He's pretty much doing what he can, which is what I expected.   

 

I'm also a little distracted.  I lost my best - read smallest - crochet needle that I use to hook beads so I've been spending a lot of today trying to find it.   Think I'll have to bite the bullet and get a new one - although I might splurge on two since they're only a couple bucks - so that I have a spare one at hand.
