After a dramatic time jump, the three-time Eisner Award winner for Best Continuing Series continues to evolve, as Hazel begins the most exciting adventure of her life: kindergarten. Meanwhile, her starcrossed family learns hard lessons of their own.
I thought the time jump would affect my enjoyment of this series by confusing me.
But it’s not at all confusing, and I honestly prefer having narrator Hazel actually play a role in the story, instead of being a cute little baby everyone has to care for.
It feels like she’s becoming powerful in a certain way and I’m sure one day she’ll be as strong and courageous as her mama.
Oh but what parents she has. Although they’ve both wronged each other, they are determined to stick together in order to find their daughter. They will always be stronger together.
We are introduced to new interesting characters that are, as expected, three dimensional and memorable. I don’t think the author COULD make a character look meaningless and unimportant even if he tried (unless it’s intentional of course).
Even past villains or characters we loved to hate are becoming… endearing. Or it’s become so easy to understand their predicament that we can’t help but try to see their point of view. I especially loved Robot (and his son) in this volume.
A spectacular continuation.
