Nope
Hunt For Wolverine #1 - Charles Soule,David Marquez,Steve McNiven

Another miss for me in Marvel-land.   I used to lap everything up, and now not so much.   This is another huge event, and events are burning me out.   Not to mention, I lost my appetite for everything Wolverine when they killed him off, and I'm not into his supposedly huge return. 

 

I did like some of this, like how they protected Wolverine's remains, which they knew would be a prize for many a super villain or mad scientist who could do so many awful things with them.   But, still meh on this all.

Not enough Rocket and Vision
Avengers: No Road Home (2019) #4 (of 10) - Al Ewing,Mark Waid,Jim Zub,Yasmine Putri

And it looks like there'll be less of them. I'm giving up on this series, at least for now, and maybe I'll finish it up eventually if I'm persuaded it gets better.

So I'm gonna share a person story on why I'm not crazy about this...
Miles Morales: Spider-Man (2018-) #1 - Saladin Ahmed,Javier Garron,Brian Stelfreeze

Before Black Bolt, the author, worried by something political that got an artists fired, said his comics wouldn't be political.   Sweet!   Especially since Christians and Jews were targeted by an artist, particularly Jews. 

 

The author is also palestinian.   Which makes me nervous because the standard lefty views - and yes, the immigration politics in this are lefty - is that Jews should not be allowed to raise their hands in self-defense, especially against palestinians.   Ignore everything, especially the open calls to murder all Jews, from the palestinian leaders, ignore the many murders commited by palestinian terrorists, don't defend yourself. And so I have no safe place: lefty politics in my comics may mean this subtle antisemitism creeping in, and so I refuse to continue with this series if it insists on being political.   I refuse to give money to someone who complains when Jews defend themselves, ignoring the violence against them by his own people. 

 

I found the storyline decent other than the anxiety provoking aspect of worrying about lefty palestinian politics creeping into Spider-Man, and the art was meh for me, so thus the low rating.  I got this for free as a Marvel Insider - you get points for things, and can get free digital comics with your points - otherwise I wouldn't have read this at all.

Not crazy about the storyline, but not a deal breaker
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #40 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

Not even worth knocking off half a star, because this is still fun.   I'm just more confused as to what's happening with Nightmare and the whole bad dream thing, which is just slightly frustrating.  The characters are nailed, the art is wonderful and seeing Doctor Strange, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur all together is wonderful.

I'm all in for everything
West Coast Avengers (2018-) #8 - Kelly Thompson,Eduard Petrovich

At first it was 'meh'.   Then I wanted more humor.   Then I wanted more Gwenpool/Quire.   Now I just have it all: it's fun, it's funny, and the way it uses old villains in a new way?   Add it the mystery surrounding Kate Bishop's murder, and how much fun this has turned out to be and I'm not in it for one aspect; I'm 100% all in this series for everything. 

 

Great writing, great art, great everything.
