Moon Girl and Dr. Strange
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (2015-) #39 - Brandon Montclare,Natacha Bustos

And it's super adorable.   They're fighting off Nightmare and Bad Dream and all those mystical folks who are disrupting everyone's sleep.  As always, this is an all-ages fun title - and that includes folks who are older like me, and who like both lighter and darker fare, so long as it's done well. 

 

This is light, fun, and done incredibly well, from the storytelling that finds ways to do these light, kid-friendly stories month after month without getting old, or the art that is, once again, very comic book style, but very well done.   And I keep bringing this up: there is, in American comics at least, a very standard style.   (Then again, Japan has manga.   And there are differences between artists, but even they tend to stick with a standard style.   And it's not really a bad thing.  I admit my favorite artists tend to stray from he style, or try something new, because they stick out in my mind, but I have some favorites - Michael Turner, or Chris Bachalo, or Brendan Cahill* - who do don't do it either.   What I'm trying to say is: standard style or not, I like it when the art is done well as it is in many of my favorite series.

 

*I own two Cahill originals, from Lost Light and Robots in Disguise, two Transformers series.   They are the TF pieces that resonate the most with me, and he became a favorite when I saw the art in person.   So, yeah, sometimes it's that...

quote 2019-02-02 01:17
Question,” I announce as Tuck wanders into the kitchen. “Answer,” he replies instantly. “I haven’t asked the question yet, asshole.” Grinning, he washes his hands at the sink and then ties a neon pink apron around his waist. Logan, Dean and I gave him the frilly monstrosity as a joke for his birthday, on the argument that if he was going to be our mother hen, he might as well look the part. Tucker countered by insisting he’s masculine enough to pull off any item of clothing we throw his way, and now he wears the damn thing like a badge of macho honor.

Dead Girl Walking by Chris Brookmyre (2015-07-02) - Chris Brookmyre

this is not an Espionage novel...but I may not need the Espionage novel, next, that I was planning. let’s just say this Brookmyre novel has certain aspects...

 

it’s also terrific, hypnotic. shall finish it later and see if it can climb even higher than the 4 Star rating it can expect from me up to this point.

Dead Girl Walking by Chris Brookmyre (2015-07-02) - Chris Brookmyre

things are suddenly very dangerous for Jack - bad people trying to corner him. meanwhile, scenes from the past showing Heike and Monica suggest that they are doing some investigating of a certain seedy situation...but I suspect that too might have become very dangerous.
