Yes, love!
Transformers: Till All Are One Annual 2017 - Mairghread Scott,Sara Pitre-Durocher

You wil not believe what happens to Windblade.   (I'm looking at Jessica, because I managed to hook her on TF comics, but not enough to be as obsessive as I am.   But, Jessica, WINDBLADE!)

 

Starscream is allowing elections to be held for the ruler of Cybertron - although he's using a different title - and I kind of can't believe his redemption arc throughout TAAO.   Like I was left stunned at the end. 

 

I also read the letter at the end, which was a 'welp, this is done, sad to see it go, but here's what I wanted to do and here's the people I'm thanking,' and that kind of did let me know what to look for in the Windblade story arc.   I was hyper aware of certain scenes because of this, but I can also see how this story arc - of her listening - was built up.   Then again, she's a City Speaker: her whole schtick is listening.   That is literally what her main purpose in life is.   

 

And she's good at it.   She's good at it because she cares, and she focuses on what people are saying; she's good at it because of her great empathy.   

 

There's a little about Knock Out and his conjunx, but it's one panel.   Still, it was just enough to make me go 'awww!'   It's got a lot about politics, who the best people are to lead others, and what length people will go to get power.   There's a lot that's hopeful, even in horrible arcs like Starscream's where he spends most of this series screwing people over.  

 

It's heartwarming and amazing and wonderful.   I do want further stories in this vein, and I hope someone will pick up Windblade's story later on - but for now?   This is the perfect ending to this series.

Mediocre annual
Daredevil (2015-) Annual #1 - Charles Soule,Roger McKenzie,Vanesa R. Del Rey,Guillermo Sanna

I forgot to pick this up in paper format and got it for a dollar in a Comixology sale.   And meh, am I glad this wasn't something I paid more for because it's not as good as I expected. I was originally all in for this because of Echo, a deaf superhero.   She can often do things that Daredevil can't, especially if it affects his hearing.   Her deafness being a source of strength as sound is used against people and Maya (Echo's given name) is immune.   

 

I felt the ending was anti-climatic and there's more to Maya than deafness.   What she endured, how strong she became, and her ability to mimic everything she sees weren't taken advantage of to their full potential or flat out misused.   (She saw the piano player who caused the sound-virus and wasn't able to mimic his finger movements.   Fail.    She can mimic anything immediately when she sees it, and for her not to get it the first try just to ratchet up the tension without an explanation was ridiculous.   Her commenting that something was partially blocking her view - like someone jumping in front of her - would have upheld the tension without overlooking that fact.)

 

I honestly can't even remember the backstory.  I just wasn't that into it.   Oh, right, it was a Melvin Potter/Gladiator story that didn't really do it for me.   The art was really nice, though, and it wasn't as disappointing as it could have been, just not as good as I'd been hoping.  Overall, I was happier than I was disappointed so three stars felt fair.

Charity - LIFT 4 Autism 2017
2017_HeaderVersion

LIFT 4 Autism Online Auction: Monday, April 24 - Friday, April 28
 

Autism. A mystery to some. A way of life for others.

 

A cause for all since it is now the fastest growing and most common disability in the US. 1 in every 68 children are diagnosed with Autism. Many of these kids will rely on their parents to some degree, depending on severity, all their lives, with estimated costs between 5 to 7 million dollars in services and care over their lifetime. Many of the services those living with Autism require are not covered by insurance. It is an expensive and difficult lifelong diagnosis to navigate.

 

Authors Ginger Scott and Kennedy Ryan started LIFT 4 Autism a few years ago as a charitable initiative rallying the romance reading community in April, which is Autism Awareness/Acceptance month.

 

All proceeds go to this year’s charitable partner Kulture City, who is doing amazing things for Autism families. Discover more about them at kulturecity.org. Specifically, LIFT will benefit Kulture City’s lifeBOKS program, which provides families with free kits to curtail wandering, a common and potentially life threatening challenge. Proceeds will also benefit Kulture City’s tablet program, which provides iPads to improve communication for non and limited verbal children on the spectrum to families who cannot afford them.
