So, I just got done with #17. Would have read it sooner, but for some reason I thought #16 was #17, and didn't realize it till #18's teaser was released.
So yeah, onto the comic...
...okay, this is a 4 parter right? Cuz I just got done reading an entire comic that was NOTHING but setup! Fuck, it wasn't even setup! It was mostly just background information about Celestia's youthful expeditions with Starswirl. All we know right now is portal, 'Tia going somewhere too much, and lel Sombra. We don't even know why we should care, except that 'Tia got beat up! Warranted we at least know that Somra is a good guy here and that 'Tia is worried about "evil encroaching on her", but that's also not much to go on and, technically, that's issue #18.
So yeah, I give #17 a nothinghappened/10
Also, completed FF4...
...and it was pretty cute! Not really sure how you pull off a trap laden dungeon in comic book form, but I guess it worked. Certainly felt a bit strange though that they kept bein' all like "Hey, I think there's a trap here! Eeyup, there was a trap there." Not much suspense when the problem gets solved on the same page. And then there was...nothing else to talk about? Huh, yeah, this comic was...a thing. It was cute to see Shining and Twi be all "lel monster hunters", but...I guess it kinda just ends like that.
One thing that did catch my eye though is that apparently in the Crystal Empire, matters such as out of tune flugelhorns and the farmer's crops are handled by the state. Lel communist Crystal Empire?
