Learn from my mistakes
Robot Dreams - Sara Varon

Robot Dreams by Sara Varon was sold to me as being a cute little story about a dog who builds a robot so that he has a friend. I was hoping for something with The Wild Robot vibes but I actually found it to be disturbingly macabre and callous. This is a children's graphic novel and yet it explores some really dark themes (in itself not a problem but this was creepier than most). Did I mention that it was entirely wordless? I'm not certain if it's a gift or a curse that Varon possesses to entirely unnerve me without using a single, solitary word. Without giving the entire plot away (this is a very short book by the way), a dog builds himself a robot friend and the two of them are inseparable...until the robot gets rusty at the beach and the dog abandons him there. Yes, he left his very best friend behind at the beach. The next day the beach is closed for the winter and the entire area is fenced off. (That's one strict town!) So now the robot is left on the beach to rust while the dog tries to make a new friend. There are mishaps on both sides of this relationship as the robot is beset by weather, a group of boaters who partially disassemble him, and eventually a junk collector. The dog keeps making friends with those who either can't or won't stick around and he's back at square one without any friends at all. Like I said this is not sweet bedtime reading. If you're looking for a creepy existential crisis well you've hit the jackpot. If you wanted a cutesy little graphic novel you've made a horrible, horrible mistake. 1/10

I don't know what just happened...
Optimus Prime #17 - Kei Zama,John Barber

But I absolutely love it, and I'm eager to find out what's going to happen next.   It's all scheming, betrayal, and something super weird going on between Devastator, Metrotitan and Starscream. 

 

And of course the surprise guest at the end.   Like that's the WTF just happened moment, and I am so, so eager to find out.  I want to scream out what happened, but I have hopes that Jessica will eventually finish this up... so I won't spoil this, or letting her know what we find out about Primus.

I really, really need good comics right now
Optimus Prime #16 - Kei Zama,John Barber

Things feel like they're falling apart around me, and while my immediate go to comfort read would be new Lost Lights, I want to catch up on my comics - I have so many piled up! - and Lost Light?   Well, Lost Light is over.  

 

This is an excellent second go to, though, especially as this issue was a breathtaking character piece on Soundwave.   (It also furthered the plot, including many other characters, but it was mostly a piece on Soundwave, who is one of my favorite characters in this series.)

 

A beautiful, breathtaking issue.   Love, love, love this series.   It's become just a highlight for me.   Barber gets better and better with time, and I love seeing his evolution as a writer come to this.   I'm hoping, trusting, that the rest of this series is just as good.

I spoiled myself for the big reveal
Transformers: Lost Light #22 - Brendan Cahill,James Lamar Roberts

I didn't mean to, but someone was talking about it on Twitter.   Oops.   Regardless, it took my breath away, because it's huge, and it makes sense to me on multiple levels, none of which I can talk about without spoiling a couple people I got started on this - and that I'm still hoping will finish this. 

 

  I laughed so hard a couple times during a break in my class.  Everyone ignored me because I was hoping up a Transformers comic, but they don't know what they're missing out on here!

 

Love, love, love this so damn much.  I can't believe I only have three more issues and then no more James Roberts writing Transformers!   It just can't be true, and it is at the same time.
