Love love, love
Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1 : New Rules (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10) - Rebekah Isaacs,Christos Gage,Joss Whedon

I didn't read all of last season, I think, but I figured since I had this, I'd give it a go.  Or maybe I just don't remember all of season nine?   Either way, this filled in what I needed to know, and I never felt completely thrown for a loop.   

 

I enjoyed the humor and warmth of Buffy's extended family and I love seeing Spike grow as a character.

Liked this better than volume one and less than volume two
Steed and Mrs. Peel Vol. 3 (Steed and Mrs. Peel: Ongoing) - Yasmin Liang,Caleb Monroe

The banter is still lacking, but the storyline engaged me more, especially the Cartneys and how the son and daughter fit into the Hellfire club.

 

I'd read more of this, but it looks like  I got the whole run in Humble Bundle.   There was a new author for each volume, either by plan, or because the series had trouble keeping authors.   If the latter, I can see that playing into why this didn't last longer, that and sales.  (I'm guessing that not that many people bought this, because you need to find Avengers fans who buy comics, and I'm not sure how much overlap there is, especially given that a lot of people still look down on comics in general.  So you're looking at an older generation that hasn't really come to terms with comics as being literary, or even of that possibility existing.)

Lovely
Steed and Mrs. Peel Vol. 2 (Steed and Mrs. Peel: Ongoing) - Yasmin Liang,Caleb Monroe

Not quite as good as the first volume: the banter didn't do it for me as much, and the plots didn't feel quite as odd as the plots in the original series did, but overall a pleasant read, and a decent follow up to volume one.

There's a flogging monster
Saban's Go Go Power Rangers #4 - Ryan Parrott,Dan Mora

It turns into a ginormous flogging monster. 

 

It's pretty messed up.

Just like the Avengers
Steed and Mrs. Peel Vol. 1: A Very Civil Armageddon - Caleb Monroe,Steve Bryant,Mark Waid

The banter, the clever plots, the even more clever way Steed and Peel discover what's going on and how to counter it, the utter Britishness of it all, and the Hellfire club.   Martial arts and a bespoke, bulletproof umbrella.   All just too much fun.   Tigus and I ended up having a discussion about why they didn't use Avengers, and the Hellfire Club may be yet another reason. 

 

It's all too Marvel Avengers, between Waid - who's currently writing Marvel's Avengers and Champions, which has a huge Avengers feel with the Avengers characters, and ties to Avengers characters - so they may have just focused on Steed and Peel.  

 

Either way, it's so much fun, I'm immediately moving onto volume two.   The cover gallery in this is gorgeous, too, and I'm so glad I invested in this Humble Bundle for this alone: I probably wouldn't have picked it up as I haven't watched the old-school Peel and Steed Avengers in a while.  I have an urge to rewatch it now.
