Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #1 (review)

By  •  Comics

Green Lantern Corps: Edge of Oblivion #1 is an enjoyable, if by-the-numbers, story about the Green Lantern Corps trying to save a dying universe. If the art side of the creative team had shown up, it might’ve had a fighting chance.

This attempt at a Swamp Thing relaunch contains beautiful art and horrible sentences.

Jupiter’s Circle v2 #2, or, Mark Millar Really Screws Up

The American consciousness, the American Dream, and the differences between American and European thought have been topics of Mark Millar’s comics for a long time. In the Jupiter’s Circle series, he has been exploring this a little more deeply. In this week’s Jupiter’s Circle v2 #2, he goes full speed into a reflection of the current American landscape, as seen through the mistakes of the past. It’s bad. It’s very bad.

The Goddamned by Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera takes a pre-Biblical Flood world and shows us something we’ve never seen the likes of in comics.

Huck #1 by Mark Millar and Rafael Albuquerque (Review)

By  •  Comics

A Mark Millar story is almost always going to have minor gripes. Speedbumps aside, Huck has everything going for it, for the most part: incredible art by Rafael Albuquerque, Millar at his most open and optimistic, and a lead character and supporting cast that you want to see more of. This is a great debut. As for the rest? Time will tell.

Casanova: Acedia vol. 1 by Matt Fraction, Fabio Moon, et al. (Review)

By  •  Comics

Casanova: Acedia Volume 1 is sold as a jumping-on point: Casanova Quinn remembers nothing of the previous three volumes, he remembers nothing of who he is, and he’s doing mysterious work for a mysterious man. Foreboding cult things are happening. People start coming after him. What’s a man to do? What are you to do as a reader? Why is life like this?

Tokyo Ghost had a lot of potential. It might be Sean Murphy’s best performance as a cartoonist. Unfortunately, Rick Remender fails his concept by falling into laziness.

Review – This Damned Band #1

By  •  Comics

This Damned Band #1 is about a band called Motherfather that is, uh, damned. Or something like it. In the first page, the narrative tells us that the band are “…devotees of the occult,” and that they take their beliefs “…very seriously.” From there, Paul Cornell and Tony Parker go out of their way to make fun of this conceit, and the results are interesting.

Dark Corridor #1 by Rich Tommaso

By  •  Comics

Dark Corridor #1 gets an absolute endorsement if you’re already stepped outside of the Marvel / DC / Image / Dark Horse comfort zone. Rich Tommaso is doing something here that’s neat and unfamiliar enough to excuse its flaws. If you like crime stories with ambition, and you’re tired of the same-old / same-old with Brubaker and Phillips, give this a whirl.
