Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Vol. 4 Review

    Lunella or Moon Girl may be the smartest person in the world, but she is not the emotionally smartest person in the world. She is rather normal in that department.I didn't care for the alternate universe or time travel here, but I understand it is part of the universe. I did find Ego and his daughter interesting for a bit.I enjoy Moon Girl and this wasn't my favorite of the series. It was still fun though.

    I have mixed feelings about this volume because I really love these characters, but I wasn't a fan of this story arc. Her decision at the end of the volume (the last two issues) came out of nowhere, and it didn't make sense to me. The main story line for this volume also felt like it took too long to wrap-up, it definitely could have been told in fewer issues. I have higher hopes for the next story arc because I think it's pretty likely there will be a happy reunion.

    The smartest person on Marvel Earth heads off it and meets Girl-Moon (daughter of Ego the Living Planet, obviously), not to mention alternate world counterparts Devil Girl and Moon Dinosaur. Meanwhile, back home, a Doombot head gets into progressively sillier spots while attempting to cover up her absence. But then she also seems to say goodbye to her big red sidekick, and audition for a replacement - a change I really hope won't last long, because I'll miss that lunk.

    3 1/2 Stars Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur are back for another volume, this one oddly enough is named Girl-Moon. You can probably make a guess or two what that is about, but we’ll talk about that more in a bit. I have to say that even while I don’t always love the plots for Moon Girl, I’m always happy to read her series. Sometimes a character is interesting enough to make up for a subpar plot, and thankfully Moon Girl is one of those characters (it helps that Devil Dinosaur is adorable).(view 3 1/2 Stars Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur are back for another volume, this one oddly enough is named Girl-Moon.

Sometimes a character is interesting enough to make up for a subpar plot, and thankfully Moon Girl is one of those characters (it helps that Devil Dinosaur is adorable).(view spoiler)[ Girl-Moon is six issues long, with five of the issues focusing on the same plot. The last one is more like a series of (silly) short stories. It was nice to get a longer plot for Moon Girl, even if it wasn’t the best I’ve read from her. There were plenty of funny and quippy moments to make up for a lot of what the plot was lacking. To be honest, I’m not sure how I feel about Girl-Moon (the character, not the volume title). It’s kind of a funny idea? It’s also a bit…lame? Basically Girl-Moon is the daughter of none other than Ego the planet (because who else could be her father, really?). She’s desperately lonely and completely lacking in any social skills – mostly because she’s spent the majority of her life alone. Now, I don’t know what the lifespan of a moon/planet is, but it kind of seems like Girl-Moon is stuck as a perpetual child (we never hear about Ego as a child, so I’ve always kind of assumed he was always this way). I could be wrong, but I really can’t picture her any other way. Thanks to Lunella running off to save a girl she’s never met she finds herself in an odd sort of situation. Specifically she finds herself in another dimension at one point. So Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur get to meet Devil Girl and the Moon Dinosaur. Yeah…it’s funny and cute, but Devil Girl doesn’t have any of the charm that Moon Girl has. It’s an odd thing to say, but it’s true. It’s like they took the best parts of Lunella and hid them away. I’m sure it was an odd experience for both of them, but it was odd. Admittedly I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to the whole interdimensional interactions thing. I have no problem with it occurring; all I ask is that it be well done. I don’t feel like that was the case here. More like it was thrown in for a quick gag, moving on quickly once they made their point. Throughout all of these somewhat silly and absurd (I meant that in the unlikely sort of way) moments are some truly funny moments. The Doom bot being left in control of Moon Girl’s cover while she’s gone is pretty insane…genius, but insane. It ends up with a lot of interesting and funny moments, to put it lightly. It also feels like this may actually be going somewhere, but it’s hard to be certain if it’ll be anything more than a gag in the long run. I will say that the conclusion to this plotline was wholly unexpected and incredibly heartbreaking. It actually scared me into thinking it was the end of the series for a moment, though since I know there’s another volume coming out that it isn’t the case. I do hope they change it back…otherwise they’re going to have to find a new title for the series. The last issue is a series of short stories. Maybe it’s because of what happened in the issue before, but I just couldn’t get into this one. They were silly or jarring to me, and I just wasn’t feeling it. I’m still curious about what the next major plot will end up being, so that’s good. (hide spoiler)]For more reviews, check out Quirky Cat's Fat Stacks

    It might be a 3.5.This wasn't my favorite Moongirl and Devil Dino... I feel like they don't know what to do with her. I love Lunella and very much enjoy the whimsy that her stories create. I just felt... meandering?Not giving up, will never give up! But hope they can focus her hero's story a bit more.

Lunella heading off-planet to save someone isn't too out of this world, but the trip to Ego and then to the parallel dimension don't really seem that related to each other. They do expose Lunella to some good parallels that help her grow as a person, but it seems like a stretch to get to these positions.And then there's the ultimate decision that Lunella makes at the end of the story, which didn't sit right with me at all. I thought it'd be a quick reverse, but from interviews and such it doesn't seem like it, which makes me sad. I'm hoping there's a larger plan in place here. Please.Series artist Natacha Bustos draws the majority of this arc, with a few fill-in pages later in the story from an array of close copies. I do feel like there were a few issues here that were much shorter, as if they were missing a few pages. Issue 24 especially felt like it should have been longer.I'm conflicted about this one. On the one hand, it's more Moon Girl being Moon Girl. But on the other, it doesn't look like things are going to be happy again any time soon.

    It finally happened. My four-year-old daughter noticed that there was a DINOSAUR on the cover of these graphic novels and they are now HERS. She doesn't care about the story, is moderately interested in Lunella because of her relationship to Devil Dinosaur, and is not interested in sharing these with her brother who actually wants to read them.

    Volume 4 doesn't quite reach the same level of the rest of this series. The story goes in some less-effective directions, and just didn't appeal to me as much as previous story arcs. However, I'm curious to see what the next volume brings. And I still love these characters, so no regrets about spending more time with them.
