Pick of the Week


My Little Pony: Friends Forever #32

The shiest pony who’s ever shied, Fluttershy, meets the most adventurous adventurer ever: Daring Do! When the two embark on a perilous journey together it may be up to Fluttershy to teach Daring Do the meaning of bravery!

This was a little late because I had a hard time making a decision this week.  I only picked up the two, and while neither one was necessarily bad, neither one wowed me either.  Ultimately, I went with My Little Pony because I’m a sucker for Daring Do and particularly the villains that come along with her.  I also feel a strong affinity with Fluttershy.

Reasons to pick this one up:   Daring Do stories generally don’t disappoint, even though this one is a little heavy handed with the meaning of bravery.

Reasons to avoid: It’s heavy handed with its morals, which is unsurprising given that subtlety was never the strong suit of the franchise.

Runner Up:


Harley Quinn (2016-) #4

“108 MILLION WAYS TO DIE!” Even though she hates to leave Coney Island as it rebuilds after the zombie apocalypse, Harley must set out on a journey that will take her around the world-and into the clutches of a bizarre robotic enemy! Too bad her Mecha-Harley suit didn’t fit in the overhead bin…

Harley Quinn rarely disappoints, and her quest to shut down call centers struck close to him.  Especially since I have been getting that same IRS call at least four or five times a week for the past several months.  Shut them down, Harley.  Shut them down.

Reasons to pick up:  It’s Harley Quinn.  Also, the alternate cover with her and Poison Ivy is gorgeous.  I managed to snag alternate covers for both my picks this week.

Reasons to avoid: Eh, it’s not the best volume that’s come out of this particular series so far, but at least it’s not boring.
