The spontaneous marathon is complete! Just got a good momentum, and realized I really wanted to know how everything ended. The answer is: the only way it could. After everything that's happened, all the loss and mistakes, tying off some loose ends means acknowledging things won't ever be the way they were. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality 2/? Redemption and reconciliation are very much still question marks for a number of characters but the idea that peace, getting people to the table to talk is hard thing, really resonates right now, maybe its one of those perennial truths that we keep having to learn the painful way. 2mo
Robotswithpersonality 3/3 Blue Beetle and Booster; Harley with her olive branch (tree); the moment with Bruce and Clark; Lobo's Lantern 'creations'; there were a number of memorable highlights in this final volume. But boy oh boy am I glad it's not the main continuity! I think it's time for a cheerful Superman comic. 😅 2mo

Wow, that went by really fast. Definitely has its share of dark moments, seemed to be almost entirely fight scenes and planning to fight scenes. Highlights were Hal Jordan's hallucinated 'Jiminy Cricket', and Javelin joy ride complete with alarm saga. ⚠️Animal death

You named the evil galaxy-eating space star fish STARRO? You felt it necessary to CREATE an evil galaxy-eating space star fish? I- you know what, why not?!🤷🏼‍♂️

This is a fun group of superheroes, and I‘m liking the story arc so far. Black Canary puts together a team with Starling, Katana, and Poison Ivy, and Batgirl joins too at times. Vol. 1 (first 7 issues) had them trying to find who is controlling people‘s minds and sometimes struggling to work together.

4 🌟This new look at Poison Ivy‘s origins introduces her father, her friend or her friend, and her extremely sick mom. What I liked about this book was the content warnings for incest, rape, and abuse. Now you don‘t have a lot of that in the book however the book is entirely an allegory for all of those things and there are resources for people that need it at the back.

That was good! Sad, though. Pamela has a sad history with her parents and is treated poorly by her peers. Love that she‘s so eco-friendly and how that informs her future villainous self, despite coming from innocent origins. I enjoy origin stories of villains, and this was a well-done teen version. Also love that the authors included this page at the end of the story, given that these themes are present in the graphic novel.

LGBTQ themes (F/F) in this novel made me smile. I loved the budding friendship and the complications of differing morals. Pamela/Ivy is absolutely a morally grey character, but after reading this story it‘s hard not to sympathize with her choices.

That was fun. I first heard about Harley Quinn in watching Suicide Squad and really loved the follow up movie about her alone. I subscribe to the Harley Quinn comic series now, but this was great to read some of her features in Batman comics. I was hoping for more on her origin story, but this was a good start. Didn‘t realize she and Poison Ivy were such good friends!
