The Mother of Night is here
Avengers: No Road Home (2019) #2 (of 10) - Yasmine Putri,Jim Zub,Al Ewing,Paco Medina,Mark Waid

She's brought eternal night to all the Earth - all the worlds, in fact.   And Voyager, from the previous comic-a-week event, must gather together Avengers - and at least one Guardian of the Galaxy - to stop her. 

 

Except now they seem to be scattered - or maybe in hell? - and apparently living out their most horrible scenarios.   Mother of Night is shattered, her soul scattered across the universe and she assures them she is at her weakest.   She still wipes them out with barely any effort, not to mention her children, all with the fraction of her power but still formidable opponents.   

 

I peeked at the next issue, and it seems to be, yay, Rocket centered.   The first issue was set up, and this issue was narrated by Hawkeye, Clint Barton version.  The next one seems to go over what happens to Rocket.   Still, it's a Vision and Rocket maxi-series, so I'm pleased to be reading this.   In fact, a new one will come out my birthday week, so yay!

Not usually a fan of this
Avengers: No Road Home (2019) #1 (of 10) - Yasmine Putri,Jim Zub,Al Ewing,Paco Medina,Mark Waid

But it's another weekly comic, and it stars Rocket and Vision.   Yay!  My two favorite Marvel boys are... playing together. 

 

And I mean, because I'm super adult: 

 

 

For a second, Rocket was inside Vision.   Marvel sure is weird about sexual innuendo, and actual sex.  

 

And yet, still like 1/100th as weird as Savage Dragon, so I needed a break from the weirder porn-y stuff.

Going along fairly well
Star Trek vs. Transformers #3 (of 5) - John Barber,Mike Johnson

It's clever enough to keep me engaged, even if I feel it lets down both of these fandoms that I love a little.   Just a tad. 

 

Still, I'm amused by Fort Tiberius, and I own all the next two issues - up to the end of the series - so I'll certainly keep on, y'know, trucking until then.   It's funny because Kirk's crew didn't know what a truck was when they met Optimus. 

 

No, scratch that, I just think it's funny because so tired and burnt out.

Warming to this series
Star Trek vs. Transformers #2 (of 5) - John Barber,Mike Johnson

It's cute.  It's... not what I'd hope from from this crossover.   Still bothered by the Star Trek animated illustrations, but a Spock/Prime mind meld is kinda delicious.   It's also nice to have more of the continuity I remembered in IDW's TF universe, even if this smacks of AU.

So I missed Generation 2 on the cover...
Transformers Generation 2 #1 - Simon Furman

I should also point out how amazing the cover is: it folds open in the middle to reveal a scene, like, inside Prime's head.  I kept opening and closing it and was like 'this is brilliant!!!'

 

So I was distracted by shiny hijinks.   And then I started reading and was like 'whaaat?'   I finally opened it back up and went 'oh, Generation 2 makes sense!'   Anyway, loads of Grimlock and the Dinobots makes me so happy!  I'm so sorry, but I'm too burnt out to remember who gifted this to me, although I remember the box it came in.   Thank you!  I love it, and my only issue is that it seems hard to get the rest of this series.  I suspect I could find it online, but I'm not sure I want to do that, since not legal.   Then again, if only Hasbro would allow this to be licensed, although I suspect it's harder now that Marvel has been sold to Disney and they might have artistic rights that they're not releasing?

 

A fun story, one of the Furman stories I enjoyed the most so there was that pleasantness.  I may order a couple more issues online, although, ugh the shipping and handling charges on that... I may just wait until I get too burnt out and depressed and order issue two.   We shall see.   

 

Also, way too burnt out to do librarian-things all nicely.   Sorry, y'all, I found a site I trusted and added in as much information as  I could glean from them, and from my own eyes - like the language was clearly English and this was, well, a paperback?   I mean no hardcover and they don't have a comic book option.
