Not How It Was Before | Thoughts on Outcast #5

Outcast #5 (Image)– This issue was perhaps the series’ most focused to date and contains a fair amount of action and plot development (so far this series is even less about character than The Walking Dead or Invincible). Knowing that Kirkman is going for his usual 6-issue story arc break for collected trade editions of his comics just confirms suspicion that the story is being … Continue reading Not How It Was Before | Thoughts on Outcast #5

You Never Had a Daughter | Thoughts Wytches #2

Wytches #2 (Image) – Scott Snyder should not be writing horror stories for comics, tasking an artist to translate them into compelling images. He should instead be writing short prose stories like he did before coming to comics. Despite Jock’s art and the Matt Hollingsworth’s astounding color work, this is the last issue of Wytches I purchase. – Rating: 2.0 Continue reading You Never Had a Daughter | Thoughts Wytches #2

Comic Book Fetish Favorites | October 2014

Running late. Already into the second week of November. At any rate, here’s the rundown and commentary of the 19 comics released in October that I read. There a few new number ones on here so let’s see how they stacked up against the usual suspects. 1. Sex Criminals #8 (Image) 5.0 – SexCrimz never seems to disappoint and it’s undeniably my highest rated series … Continue reading Comic Book Fetish Favorites | October 2014

The Volatile + The Profane | Thoughts on The Wicked + The Divine #5

The Wicked + The Divine #5 (Image) – This is the second comic I’ve read in recent months where I’ve witnessed the demise of a comic’s apparent lead character (the other being Southern Bastards). I may need a re-read of the earlier issues because I don’t quite buy the other main character’s reaction, as if in so short a time some super-strong deep bond was … Continue reading The Volatile + The Profane | Thoughts on The Wicked + The Divine #5

They Killed Earl Tubb? You Bastards! | Thoughts on Southern Bastards #5

Southern Bastards #5 (Image) – Well…I guess I’m out. Fuck. I’m pissed off. Just like Game of Thrones with Ned Stark, my gateway character – in the case of this series, Earl Tubb, the sympathetic protagonist of the “Here Was a Man” story arc (a telling title), the apparent star of this series’ first four issues, actually *** RARE SPOILERS *** diedin that fourth issue … Continue reading They Killed Earl Tubb? You Bastards! | Thoughts on Southern Bastards #5

Lost the Plot | Thoughts on Trees

Trees #6 (Image) – I’ve finally come to realize why I’m having so much trouble with this series. It’s perfectly plot-less – there is no obvious (or even discernable) plot that writer Warren Ellis (the comics legend) is working here. It’s not uncommon for an author to hold his cards close to his vest in a suspense story in terms of plot. However, I would … Continue reading Lost the Plot | Thoughts on Trees
