A new arc takes shape in Steven Universe #5 as it explores the dangers of having a yard sale while the Crystal Gems are around. A giant slug (and Pearl to a certain extent) recently destroyed the Beach City Library, so Steven and Connie decide to raise some money and build a new one. Steven and Connie have the noblest of intentions when they gather up junk to sell, and their altruistic nature is in no way linked to Connie’s desire to read the next volume of the Unfamiliar Familiar.
As always, normalcy doesn’t last long when Steven’s around. Among the rubbish Steven finds one of Connie’s old books. Immediately after touching it weird vibes fill the page. Oblivious to any magical mayhem, Steven leaves the book behind and goes into town to post yard sale flyers with Connie.
