Yay!
Optimus Prime #12 - John Barber,Kei Zama

I've been so stressed I haven't done much homework the past couple days.  I got my small assignment - a site visit proposal - done and it's due February 4th.   I got my open book quiz that's due on the 30th done today.  I still have one small assignment due on the 30th, but it's pretty much 'run these programs, and write down what you still don't understand, and send that to me.'  

 

It's going to take me two hours tops, isn't due until Tuesday and is literally the only work I have due this week.   Yay!  

 

I'm going to read comics for the rest of the night, and do my assignment tomorrow.  I'll read in the morning, due the assignment after work, then read more for me.   But I'm a nervous wreck and need to read. 

 

That being said, YES, Optimus Prime was just what I needed.  Barber's work continues to get more and more nuanced, and I'm loving how everyone is questioning what Prime is, and if he's really just a normal bot who's extraordinary - or if being a Prime actually means they should all deify him.   

 

Meanwhile, guns are being sold - Cybertronian tech.   And Jazz is missing.   His response to Prime not being there is just astounding; his finding out that the colonists were looking for him and not the guns, and that Prime hadn't sent them, just shocked me.   And yet, it all makes sense. I can't say I'd react any differently if I were him, in fact.  

 

Just a beautiful story.   I wasn't that into the art at the beginning, but I'm coming to really love the muted color tones, and how it matches up with the story perfectly. 

 

I might be up for a reread of this, if anyone else wants?

Cap is in this
Avengers (2016-) #675 - Mark Waid,Al Ewing,Jim Zub,Pepe Larraz,Mark Brooks

So is Vision and Viv.   Fascinating new story, not sure how I feel about the weekly comics, although I'll choose whether or not to continue when this storyline ends in March. 

 

Still one-half starring everything with Cap.

Love love, love
Buffy: Season Ten Volume 1 : New Rules (Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 10) - Rebekah Isaacs,Christos Gage,Joss Whedon

I didn't read all of last season, I think, but I figured since I had this, I'd give it a go.  Or maybe I just don't remember all of season nine?   Either way, this filled in what I needed to know, and I never felt completely thrown for a loop.   

 

I enjoyed the humor and warmth of Buffy's extended family and I love seeing Spike grow as a character.

Nope
First Strike #1 - Mairghread Scott,David Rodriguez,Max Dunbar

Mairghread Scott, who wrote Till All Are One, co-writes this crossover.   She is an amazing writer, but I tend to not like crossovers: many of them push an agenda which can detract from the storytelling.   Furthermore, this is considered the big, yearly event, and the last event was Revolution - which I hated. 

 

I was very, very skeptical going into this, and I wasn't bowled over.  I'd be willing to give it another shot, but this is an 'everyone fights Cybertronians' storyline, and it looks like the GI Joe aspect of being betrayed by their own is going to play heavily.   Add into this the fact that it looks like there's some Action Man coming in next issue, and I'm just not thrilled with this so far.

So sad this is going away!
Transformers: Till All Are One #11 - Mairghread Scott,Sara Pitre-Durocher

This title has been cancelled.   And while this is one of my favorite authors, and she's said she hoped we'll follow no matter what other comics she writes - and if they have giant robots in them or not - I may or may not.   I'm partly in it for the giant robots.  Like a lot, actually. 

 

And what's a real shame is that while this series has been excellent from the start, I feel like it keeps getting better.   Starscream and his machinations are becoming just truly outrageous, in a way that's completely in character: cruel, malicious, and for his own good - as well as Cybertron's.   Or at least he believes they're for the good of Cybertron.   He's scheming, he's manipulating, and it's kinda... hot.   

 

Sighs.   Starscream is one of my unhealthy crushes, aka the way I process that type of person in a way that doesn't feel unsafe to me.   I've come to accept that I have these, and that it's not because I want to romanticize such unhealthy relationships, but rather that it's part of my process.   Of processing. 

 

Just a beautiful book and an all around gorgeous series.   The art, the writing, everything.   Just absolutely lovely.
