I wanted to love this
Buffy: The High School Years--Freaks & Geeks - Joss Whedon,Faith Erin Hicks,Yishan Li

I'd heard great things about the author, and I went into this knowing I'd hate the art, because I'd seen this in paper.   But it was on sale for one dollar, and I figured why not?  


Unfortunately the art killed a lot of this for me.  It's not the manga style, even with characters I know.   Manga art can be amazing.   This particular art just didn't do it for me, and was quite frankly not the best, even with understanding how manga art differs from Western art. 


This would play better if it didn't feel a little like some episodes; the question of whether or not teen outsiders, and those who had been done wrong, have been dealt with in the series, in a more nuanced way in my opinion.   The friends flipping on each other felt like that episode where Buffy's once-upon-a-time bestie male friend came from out of town, too.   


So, yeah, not as impressed as I thought I'd be.  I was hoping for more, but glad to finally read this series and get a sense of what it was.

Yes, please!
Transformers: Lost Light #15 - James Roberts,Brendan Cahill

Oh, man, as much as I was shocked by the last issue, this one?   This one had me just in shock throughout.   


And I was pleased.   This series keeps getting better and better, although, dammit, why can't Grimlock be part of a story for more than, like, two issues at a time?   Bummer.   I look forward to meeting up with the Lost Light crew at the same time that I regret leaving Grimlock behind, so mixed feelings about that. 


And if Python hadn't melted my brain, I would be giving you a longer, better review.   So there you go.

Heavy on Vision and family
Champions (2016-) #17 - Humberto Ramos,Mark Waid

And yet, it's bittersweet.  I didn't realize Marvel was rebooting until recently, but they are losing a LOT of money for me.   No Inhumans, and no Vision, no Viv, no Vivian.   So I am cutting out all Avengers titles, not picking up anything to make up for the loss of Inhumans - because I was in it for Black Bolt and the rest of the royal family - and unless they announce titles for DD, Wolvie, and maybe Jessica Jones - depending on the author - I will be dropping a ton of titles.  


Not happy, not happy at all, which ties into this series: I will be incredibly sad to see this go.   It was fun, it was thoughtful, and it had Vision.   I'm also scared about how it's ending soon - and given what's happening with Vivian's computer virus, how they plan on ending this so soon.

Why, Marvel, why
Champions (2016-) #16 - Humberto Ramos,Mark Waid

I'm loving this series, I'm loving what Marvel is doing with Vision and Viv, and Vivian, but... ugh... they're killing all the things I love.   Yeah, that's right, I saw the IDBM for the Avengers movie after Infinity War.  


Yeah, I see that Inhumans, and Vision are being phased out of Fresh Start.  I see it all, Marvel. 


This is heartbreaking, and heartwarming, and I forget what else happened: I was all about Vision, Viv, and Vivian bonding as a family.

Love, love, love!
Lockjaw (2018-) #1 - Carlos Villas,Daniel Kibblesmith,Ed McGuinness

This is... amazing.   Like you'd think, oh, Lockjaw, lol, he's getting his whole series?   But you'd be wrong.   Lockjaw is amazing.   



And it's not just that he's adorable.  



He teleports.   He TELEPORTS, YES!


And while this is all amazing, there's more.   Lockjaw is looking for his siblings, and he ends up taking D-Man along in the most hilarious way possible. 



D-Man happens to have just split from his boyfriend, no one remembers him, and he's feeling down in general.  


Y'know, until he touches Lockjaw when he's teleporting, gets taken along for the ride - and meets Ka-Zar, a half naked, ripped dude who pals around with his sabertooth tiger.   And D-Man's reaction is pretty much, 'thank you, best day ever!'   We spend a lot of time with D-Man, building up how sucky his life is, only to leave him here. 


This is a limited series, but amazing. 


Also, I was sure the fact that the writer's last name is 'Kibblesmith' was a joke, but apparently not.   That makes this better.
