Why did Marvel do this?
Old Man Logan (2016-) #19 - Jeff Lemire,Filipe Andrade,Andrea Sorrentino

Usually they're good about filling in the holes if you haven't read the series, which seems like a good marketing strategy since they give these away for free with the digital uploads of your regular comic purchases.   This time, I had no idea what happened: Wolverine specifically mentions an incident with Jean Grey going into his head that kicks all this off, and I have no fragging idea what happened. 


Overall, it didn't impact the heavily emotional and emotive story about Wolverine wanting to go back to the future he came from, to save the baby he didn't mean to abandon, but did when he left.   The whole 'we won't help you to preserve the timeline' by all the magicians is both understandable and heartbreaking, especially since many of these are friends, many of whom he's worked with before.   

 

Not sure I'll continue with this storyline, but it was a fun, free read.   The problem is Marvel does enough stuff that I like that I have to weed out some excellent stories for the ones that strike me more, that fill an emotional or mental need I have.

Love, love, love this AU!
Spider-Gwen (2015-) #24 - Jason Latour,Robbi Rodriguez

Spider-Gwen may just be my favorite of the Spider-Verse characters.  I love the dark take on Murdock and Wolverine, and even Kitty Pryde.   Still loving all the twisted stuff going on with Gwen's family, etc.

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.
