This issue featured the longest Robot and Monster Girl Flaxan section yet, and it was very interesting indeed. I really enjoyed the way Kirkman played with the differences between aging and time in different dimensions, and the huge amount of change the characters went through in such a short space of time (to them) was amazing, we got to see a rise and fall and rise and all of that stuff in double-quick time. I did find the idea that Monster Girl being a bi-sexual and being the father of a Flaxan a bit odd though, it seemed like Kirkman did it just to titillate, why couldn’t she just have slept with a male Flaxan? But then I guess if she was the one who got pregnant, then she couldn’t have not know about the kid. It’s a puzzler, I also got annoyed at the scene where Monster Girl was amazed by her big boobs. I know I normally find people complaining about sexism and stuff like that in comics to be dumb, but stuff like this, and the scene where Atom Eve admitted she made her boobs bigger with her powers, are just childish and boorish. Kirkman is better than that basically, but it’s only a minor thing, I’m not going to write a long Tumblr rant about it or anything, because the big ideas in this arc over-power the goofiness of that by a long way.

I'm just waiting for this story to end.

I've been bored to tears reading it.

I'm digging this story arc, but I'd can't wait to get back to the title character and see what Mark is up to.

Exactly.

Monster Girl and Robot are good in short bursts. Not 3 or 4 full issues. :smt011
