5 Responses to “ Arriving 4/19/17 ”

  1. “MOCKINGBIRD TP VOL 02 MY FEMINIST AGENDA”

    Don’t get triggered, comic bros!

  2. ALL STAR BATMAN #9–Last issue’s Mad Hatter story was VERY GOOD, maybe this arc is picking up after slogging a bit.

    BATMAN #21 (THE BUTTON)–Oh, I doubt it. Sigh. But I’ll at least give it a thumb-through.

    BLACK #5
    BLACK HAMMER #8
    BLACK HOOD SEASON 2 #4
    BLACK PANTHER WORLD OF WAKANDA #6
    BLACK SCIENCE #29–I’m going to start a new comic series titled BLACK BLACKNESS BLACKER THAN BLACK FEAR OF A BLACK BLACKY BLACK BLACK

    CURSE WORDS #4–Picked up the first three and it was GOOD, but I just don’t think I’m going to follow this one.

    DAREDEVIL #19–Not on board for the long-term but I’m picking up the current highly creepy story arc about the Purple Man and the Purple Kids.

    DOCTOR STRANGE #19–I think this is the last issue of the arc? I’ve definitely liked Jason Aaron’s VERY GOOD run. The action, plotting, etc., is great and I’ve discussed before my problems with his characterization of Stephen Strange. I’ll wrap this up by saying I appreciate him bringing back Dr. S. as able to carry a solo book but I think this will go down as a good but not one of the character’s top runs (in my book, those are Englehart-Brunner/Colan and Lee-Ditko, maybe Stern’s run also.).

    SECRET EMPIRE #0 (OF 9)–Slightly likelier to follow this than THE BUTTON but still leaning away. I’ll get the first issue and see….

    WORLD READER #1–This premise sounds cool. Flip-through

  3. Frankly, the money grab taint hovers over DC’s mixing of the mainline and Watchmen universe. So I’m not touching “The Button.”

    What I will touch though are:

    Astro City #43–Is this the superhero detective cat issue?

    Batwoman #2–I’ve confidence in Marguerite Bennett’s ability to do right by the character.

    Ms. Marvel #17–If you can’t adore the exploits of Ms. Kamala Khan, I don’t want to know you.

    Sex Criminals #18–For educational purposes, really, “honestly.”

    The Wild Storm #3–Warren Ellis letting his imagination run wild in re-inventing the Wildstorm universe is six versions of joy.

  4. I normally pick up my comics on Saturdays, as my weekdays are just too busy. But since I’ll be out of town this weekend, I made it a point to visit my LCS yesterday and pick up my new comics.

    One of the ones I picked up was WORLD READER #1, which has the coolest premise for a title I’ve read in a long time. It’s about “Sarah, an astronaut traveling from dead planet to dead planet, talking to the ghosts of dead worlds.” So it’s basically TNG’s “Inner Light” episode over and over. Awesome idea for a comic, right?

    Alas, the execution fell far short. Plot-wise, writer Jeff Loveness picked the most cliched entre into the story possible, with the issue essentially consisting of a group of astronauts walking around a planet and encountering something mysterious. Towards the end, we got a little hint of the alien race that once lived on the planet, but nothing showing why they were different or interesting in any way. Mainly what I got is that these long-dead aliens once had “stories” (no hint what those might be) and they were humanoid, except with things growing on their faces.

    Now, there’s nothing necessarily wrong with the direct approach, but imagine how many weird ways one could approach this idea, and instead we get something we’ve seen a million times before.

    That was pretty much emblematic of the whole issue. There are three characters we learn a little more about–Sarah, who has some sort of psychic ability to “read” a planet’s history, and will be the main character, plus a sympathetic black friend and a hard-bitten mission commander. We’re told this commander hates Sarah, although we’re not shown either that this is actually true or that there’s any reason for it. So, two-dimensional characters with just the traits that the plot calls for and no others.

    The dialogue too was merely functional and occasionally clunky. No way to tell any of the characters apart from what they say, except that the mission commander says “I’m in charge” types of things, black friend says “I’m sympathetic” types of things, and Sarah says “I’m in touch with mysterious forces I can’t explain” types of things.

    There were specific problems with the choices made in the art as well. For one, and this is a big one, all the humans are in spacesuits, and it’s really hard to tell them apart. I think their suits are different, but it didn’t seem consistent from panel to panel. If, for realism’s sake, we’re going to have these guys suited up all the time, artist Juan Doe (is that his real name?) is going to have to figure out a way to differentiate the characters better.

    For another, there were a number of splash pages and large panels. I suppose that would be fine, and the art was sufficiently pretty–but we’re not seeing anything we haven’t seen before. Why blow it up big for generic “space scenes?” If you’re going big, either make it really super pretty a la Emma Rios, or hyper-detailed like, I don’t know, Moebius or Brendan Graham or somebody. (Or both, like Wally Wood.)

    Instead what we get is more of an impressionist approach to the art. This might still have worked if paired with more specific plot and characterization choices, giving everything a dreamlike sheen. But the overall effect of this comic is too generalized, nothing specific, and no reason to go on.

    It’s such a killer premise I’ll likely pick up issue #2 just to see if Loveness and Doe do anything with it. First issues are hard! I can definitely see that they might have some more interesting stuff in their pocket, and simply made some bad choices here at the beginning. But it’d better be an awfully good second issue to make up for this EH! first one.

  5. BERLIN 20?! Oh my…
