I wanted to like this book. The artwork is so me. The cover is textured. Yet just like Donald Trump in the oval office, some things (or people) just don’t work.
They say not to judge a book by its cover, but how can you not when you see a cover like this? Especially when there are five superhero-like girls on the cover with some celestial woman figure in the background. And especially when the girl on the center of the cover looks oddly similar to Rose Quartz.
Nuttin’ but the truth in this volume.
With our current political crisis, it is no wonder why superhero movies have been performing exceptionally at the box office. We seek an escape that provides us with the feeling that justice will prevail. As that feeling only lasts approximately 1 and 1/2 hours, we wait until another film comes out to fill that void. But when a film hits so close to home that the feeling exceeds its typical shell life, you find yourself sitting in front of the computer writing about Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Mary Posa is the average millennial, she works at a job that she dislikes and barely makes enough to meet her rent payments. Her attempts to find another job constantly fail, forcing her to remain at the job that she is in: a henchgirl for the villainous Butterfly Gang. Recently, I came across an article that discussed that the average person needs a minimum wage of $20 an hour to live comfortably in New York, so I am sure that many readers, including myself, can understand Mary’s decision to turn to a life of crime.
When someone is possessed the demon will use that person’s likeliness to fool their loved ones. When Megan is possessed the demon attempts to lure her husband, and this, of course, works. Mark rushes over to Megan, believing that she is being harmed by Kyle. However, as soon as he walks over, Megan WHO IS POSSESSED lunges at him. Through the confrontation, Mark plummets through the window.
Hoping to find answers? Well, it certainly won’t happen in this volume. The revelations that Kyle experiences in this volume are not really revelations.
