so, i’m enjoying this series, inasmuch as i am still intrigued by what the heck is happening, but this issue is just more questions with no resolution to previous questions and no real indication that the story is heading in a direction where we can gather our breaths and start making progress towards anything resembling a cohesive storyline.

this issue is a mix of past, present, and “other”

where harsh truths are spoke, albeit in bewildering terms

the magic of womanhood descends

dissatisfaction with women’s representation in comic strips is expressed

and subtext swells

woe betide the sexist astronaut…

it’s another volume with many 80’s references (i will miss you forever, mcdlt!!) , but for the most part, it just brings new dangers to the girls

this feels gauche, but when i announced i was starting a blog, everyone assured me this is a thing that is done. i’m not on facebook, i’ve never had a cellphone or listened to a podcast; so many common experiences of modern life are foreign to me, but i’m certainly struggling financially, so if this is how the world works now, i’d be foolish to pass it up. any support will be received with equal parts gratitude and bewilderment.
