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

also-also, kj faces anti-semitism and misogyny

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

without giving us much to cling to.

i will stick with it, but i'm gonna need a little more meat to go with all this silverware.


3? 3.5? imma think on this for a while. i still have no idea where this series is heading...

Paris (parisperusing) I was kind of disappointed with Vol. 2 but I still can't wait to get my hands on this one!

message 2: by Bea (new) - rated it 3 stars

Bea Excited to see your review! I just checked this out at the library

karen i'll get to it soon, i hope! so many reviews and so many other things - argh! you'll probably read it before i get a chance to think about it!

message 4: by Kate (new) - added it

Kate I recently requested the first two volumes of this at my library but volume 2 came in first so I am impatiently waiting for volume 1.

message 5: by Kate and Ben (new)

Kate and Ben is anyone on now?

Elise (LiveLoveYarn) OH Thank Goodness someone said it. I *love* Vaughan but have felt so lost the last two volumes. A little disappointed this one seems to have more questions, but I'm with you...I'm stickin' it out.

Erica I worry we're never going to know what's happening, that this is just one long acid trip.
Which I'll happily take, but still. It's frustrating.

message 8: by Georgia (new)

Georgia sounds like a good book must read for me

message 9: by Fox (new) - rated it 4 stars

Fox "Is having a baby always this much fun?"

"No, it is painful and terrifying."

Well, yet another reason I'm happy I've just got pets...

karen so. many. reasons.
