Wraps up this storyline
Champions (2016-) #21 - Sean Izaakse,Jim Zub,Stefano Caselli

And has the same problem the previous issue did: far, far too heavy handed.  I still love how optimistic and cheerful and helpful this group is, without losing sight of the fact that they have to question what's good and bad and who's good and bad and be willing to change along with their understanding of the world. 

 

Very left leaning, very liberal, but my thing.   So long as they don't shit on Israel like so-called progressives like to do, I'm good with left leaning liberalism.

Marred by overly heavy Message
Champions (2016-) #20 - Stefano Caselli,Jim Zub,Sean Izaakse

And I'm not sure I really buy any of this.   And yet, I love the character interaction and I continue to love Viv. 

 

In Canada, the Master of the World may be trying to save the world.   Y'know, so he can rule it in the future.   How good is he?  How bad?  And is working with him wroth fixing climate change?  Can the Champions pass off the responsibility to the future - like a couple hundred years in the future?   

 

Also, his defense systems injured Nova and then he saved Nova.   And yet he might be hiding another girl in his factory.   Furthermore, the locals don't want him building there.  Do they have a right to land and to decide what to do with it - or does the Master of the World's good intentions cancel out anyone's rights?

 

The Champions are struggling with all these questions - and maybe they'll continue after they finish fighting Captain Marvel and Alpha Flight who just showed up.   (Alpha Flight is a Canadian super hero team although from what I remember from some Captain Marvel, Alpha Flight has been in space for a while/)

Hilarious
Despicable Deadpool (2017-2018) #300 - Scott Koblish,Mike Hawthorne,Gerry Duggan,Matteo Lolli

They went all out, setting up the next series perfectly.    This Deadpool - and those before - ended up getting bogged down by a lot of baggage.   It was harder to balance the emotional aspect with the off-the-walls manic humor and social statements, and so they found a way out.   

 

I'm sure this will come back later, but for now...

 

I say perfect.   But I'd think that there would be a way to Google things, but I suspect someone will take care of that, or it will be explained later on?   

 

So much vomit.   Content warning for y'all.   Usually I stop reading at vomit, but it got funnier and funnier, and just yes.   

 

ETA: Cap played a huge part in this and I'm still one-half starring everything with Cap in it until Marvel apologizes for the gas lighting about Hydra never being nazis and reverses the decision on that.

Compromising situation leads to three couples finding happiness.
The Vision of a Viscountess - Linda Rae Sande

This story had an interesting mix of love stories. It was one story that brought Marianne and Jasper together because of a compromising situation. Their time on Sicily, where most of the story takes place, introduced us to many other characters. There was an opportunity for a second chance at love for an older couple, as well as a new relationship for another couple. I liked Marianne as she learned to enjoy the world around her and the "Roman Arts", though her dislike of glasses went a bit too far. Jasper was a romantic at heart and was a sweetheart. His honesty with Marianne made me fall in love with him as well.

I received a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

The Vision of a Viscountess (The Widowers of the Aristocracy) by Linda Rae Sande

Reviewed for Candid Book Reviews

The Vision of a Viscountess proves that real beauty can't be seen by the naked eye. True beauty is felt within the heart. Marianne and Jasper are a combination of life's imperfections, but it's their flaws they make them perfect for each other. Sande is a constant on my book shelf. She roots for the underdog with her tales of people courageous enough to be themselves. No matter what. A little wisdom, with an abundance of heart.
