comics short thoughts

Ms Marvel through #12 - I feel like I missed an issue in there? #10 maybe? This is as cute as ever, although the Loki issue was the definition of filler.

The Wicked + the Divine through #8 - I feel like I missed an issue here, too. Also, am I supposed to be doing outside research? Because I am getting more and more lost among the pantheon. I have no idea what happened in this issues, basically, and I'm not sure how much longer McKelvie's pencils and Wilson's colors are going to tide me over.

Black Widow through #14 - this is fine? This is fine. We're gearing up to a confrontation with Chaos, finally, thank goodness.

Ody-C through #2 - I have broken up with this comic. Yes, at issue 2. I was so excited for "genderswapped Odyssey" and Fraction killed that enthusiasm dead in one. fell. swoop.

Saga through #25 - EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE. /o\ Except the dragon hunt; that's going pretty okay so far. (I'm side-eyeing that "swelled head" comment something fierce, though.)

My bookstore FINALLY got Black Widow vol 2 and it was so exciting to feel like I was actually reading comics again.

Saga through #25 - EVERYTHING IS TERRIBLE.
OH NO WHY BUT DON'T TELL ME WHY BUT

Oh man, I dunno quite how I managed to fall behind on it, but I AM three or four issues behind on Ms. Marvel. Argh.

IDK about TWTD. I don't not like it, but I'm also not sure I like it much? It's... weird.

Yeah, thank fuck, Black Widow's picking up the pace and the story again, so I'm glad.

I haven't started Ody-C yet. I wanted to. But it looks so text-heavy and I haven't been in the mood for it.

SAGAAAAAAA.

Yeah, I think I am finally giving up on TWTD. McKelvie's art just isn't enough anymore to get over the hump of having progressively LESS idea what's going on, rather than getting better at figuring things out as I go along.

I think that what happened this issue of WicDiv is that Dyonisus threw a party and also is some kind of bodyhopper sort of? Idk.

Yeah, I did get that much, but then, like, I didn't realize/remember Lucifer had been shot at, so that whole plot trail is mystifying me. Judging by the letters at the end of the issue, I'm also missing a lot by not knowing the represented deities very well, and that's homework I'm unwilling to do.

Lucifer being shot at is from the first issue, I think. I actually don't read the letters, because I have a very low threshold for Gillen-being-smug and those just blast through said threshold.

I know a fair amount on the represented deities, but not all/everything, but yeah, if you need outside knowledge to follow the story, it's not a very good story.

I'm still behind on Ms. Marvel and Black Widow, since I'm reading them on MU, but they've definitely picked up for me as I've gone on.

Sagaaaa. My library is taking forever to order volume four, and I'm so impatient to read it!

Ms. Marvel continues to be The Most Adorable, although I wasn't real excited about the Loki issue - definitely filler. In general, though - <3.
