Starts a longer story
The Punisher (2016-) #16 - Matt Horak,Declan Shalvey,Becky Cloonan

I was just getting used to the one-shots, too, which gave me the immediate gratification of having a story started and finished within twenty pages.   The benefit of longer stories is the bigger payoff, and Cloonan has proven herself adapt at both the one-shot and the longer stories. 

 

The Face comes back, and he's more sadistic and powerful than ever.   And he's calling The Punisher out to a duel to the death in public.   I'm eager to see where this goes.

The Punisher and Toothless Ruthless Ryan
The Punisher (2016-) #15 - Matt Horak,Declan Shalvey,Becky Cloonan

When people are being pushed in front of trains, The Punisher tracks the culprit - and his shrine - to where the homeless live right near the train tracks.   It's a homeless vet who shows Frank where the murderer hides out - and it's the vet who helps The Punisher stop the rash of murders. 

 

Becky Cloonan manages to make The Punisher extremely dark, incredibly violent - and yet there are heartwarming, even charming, moments.   Small moments, but she manages to balance all the darkness by leaving me with a real 'awww' moment.   

 

Love, love, love.   This may be the best run on The Punisher so far.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur no more?
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #23 - Natacha Bustos,Brandon Montclare

While figuring out Illa and Ego's issues, Lunella decides that it's best for her to leave Devil Dinosaur back on the moon: it's where he belongs, or so she decides.   Except I think they belong together.  A truly sad ending to this, and I hope Lunella figures out that she needs Devil soon.  

 

I was afraid this meant the end of this series, but there's another one coming out next month so that makes me incredibly happy!

Fun, touching, and a little sad
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #22 - Natacha Bustos,Brandon Montclare

Illa, the girl-who-is-a-moon, and daughter of Ego the Living Planet wants one thing: not to be alone.   She would, in fact, like to speak to her father, a father who doesn't seem to know what to say or do with her, other than watch her and watch over her.   

 

But she's both a moon and child.  She needs contact with somebody and in particular with her parents.   Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur try to figure out what's going on with Ego and to help them connect.

Loving this
Avengers (2016-) #672 - Jesus Saiz,Alex Ross,Mark Waid

There's a new artist, and I like him a lot more - particularly how he draws Vision.   It's also fun to see the Champions and Avengers team up, especially since with Mrs. Marvel leading the Champions and her working with her old team?   There's a lot of tension and conflict when Falcon starts handing down orders to them all. 

 

Love the conflict with Vision and Viv and how that's treated, not with delicacy but there's no time for that right now.   I have no doubt it will be dealt with in the next Champions - the one that's going to continue this storyline - or in the follow ups.   I'm looking forward to that. 

 

And yeah, seeing Vision and Viv fight together is especially fun for me.
