    to now and it really threw me off On the bright side Rachel and Jet are still fantastic together and play off one another really well This book more than any other I have loved the interplay between the two of them and I particularly enjoyed how familiar they are with one another They really feel like childhood friends which is a surprisingly rare dynamic to find done well for me lately The relationship between Jet and Earl is starting to kind of creep me out Earl keeps teetering between genuinely decent guy who isn t going to force himself on an unconscious woman and dude holding a woman up on a pedestal And I don t feel like I can use Jet a a barometer for whether or not I should be creeped out because she keeps being mad that she s waking up naked as a corpse with someone who deals with corpses hovering over her Right now it s just really uncomfortable I m also less big on Zoe right now Her character is in this transition period that could go either way so I m not sure if I m rooting for her or I want

    something else It ends up feeling this strange mix of very realistic and completely foreign at the same time Alex Ada is no different Alex is a guy from the future in a rut whose grandmother decides to buy him an android girl From there it turns into Alex getting used to a girl who is willing to do whatever he asks and getting bored by her lack of personality while robots who do have a personality are being victimized and legislated against I looks like it s going to be a story about where the AI turns into true sentience and deserves to be treated as a human with subtext about marginalized groups and their treatment in society All in a pretty basic story about a guy who is going to fall in love with a robot his grandmother bought for him It s one of those stories that feels like it s asking you to think about it It s not light and there s no physical danger in it anywhere It s almost all political with much of the danger being relayed as news reports and second hand stories where the only immediate elements are some prejudice

    character things in it but it s also not a flashback book I was really expecting a flashback book and I am always more than a little mixed on those when they get stretched out for a whole volume What we get instead is Antonelle saying goodbye to her family in a way that seems much more true to her character She s smiling playful and wants them all to get along We get her making Tony help out the brother he doesn t like so they can have a little fun She tells Tony it s totally okay for him to go out high out of his mind and helps in the way a sister does 1 In the end she always had a way to get the information he needed so a little fun beforehand was fine Despite it being a book where we re recovering from a character s death which is usually a slow and mournful book from a narrative perspective the book does a good job with keeping the pace going While not a lot gets resolved or moves forward amid Antonelle having her fun from beyond the grave we get a lot of callbacks to old elements The weird plant that tastes like chicken apparently makes you high enough to think pillows are ninjas Savoy is still moving underground Old faces like Chow come back just so you don t forget that they are a part of the world as well It s a good refresher of the things that you knew were going to play a role in the story In short it was fun and now I need to wait for the next one By which I mean intentionally poorly because you know it s going to be fine in the end and it will be amusing It s not intentional Of course not chew family recipes image comics john layman rob guillroy Reviews Pretty Deadly Vol 1 Review August 3 2014 Shea 1 Comment A friend of mine originally mentioned this one to me and I m really happy she did It s a fantasy western which I m now a bit more interested in as a genre after American Vampire As it turns out this one s probably better The story isn t entirely straightforward in the way it s told which I love There are a lot of characters keeping secrets about who they are and who other people are plus a few characters who don t even know their own natures in the story until much later The misdirection plus slow reveal is a thing that I really love in story telling though I know some people aren t going to be completely on board with it Not that you can t pretty easily tell what s going on yourself if you pay attention There s people who are obviously being set up you know that these characters in the stories the characters tell all correspond to characters

    to fill the hole that Bone left behind I might have something for you Amulet is a book I found a while ago but I ve only just gotten back to it and I forgot how much fun it is It s definitely for kids despite how dark is gets and it has a nice emphasis on family The most important relationship here is probably the one between the main character Emily and her brother Navin So far they act like real siblings without irrationally hating or loving one another and without the blind trust now that they re in a fantasy world Speaking of the magical fantasy world it is dark colour wise The creature and robot designs that we ve seen so far are great and the evil stuff looks legitimately sinister Miskit is the brightest thing in the book as the pink rabbit sidekick And maybe the plane Also I don t know how much I trust that rabbit He s adorable but he got over the death of his master way too quickly In short I have to get my hands on a lot more of these amulet kazu kibuishi scholastic the stonekeeper Follow me on
