Planetes Omnibus 1 - 7,5/10
Great hard scifi taking place in the near future, where Earth's orbit is littered with old satellites and other trash the main characters pick up for a living. Wonderfully deep characters and the drawings are out of this world - all the machinery looks totally convincing, I can't imagine how many studies this guy must have done!

Low collections 3 & 4 - 9 & 7,5/10
I enjoy almost anything Remender wrote (his best work though is Fear Agent IMHO), and this is no exception. The psychology of the characters plays a huge role, though I could understand if you think the many many internal monologues bemoaning the hopelessness of the situation sometimes get a bit much. Book 3 is perfect in this regard (it has the most scifi pulp elements as well, including fire spiders, butterflies that shoot concentrated doses of radioactivity and super brutal wasp people!), book 4 shifts the focus, and you keep hoping that it returns to the situation at the surface and BAM the whole thing is over. Artwork is mostly great, but
- the characters all have hyper-expressive body language, which makes some scenes come across as very stilted and unrealistic
- sometimes there was a bit much going on in the panels, so it was hard to make out what exactly I was looking at
- some of the panels looked like Tocchini had finished his drawing (e.g. of a face), then found out whatever he drew didn't fill the panel the way he wanted it to or it was too big for it and simply stretched, squished or deformed it. It stands out quite badly and it looks like shit. I have no idea why he kept doing that/ nobody told him to stop doing it.

Providence collections 2 & 3 - 9/10
As great as everything else that Moore has written. Creepy as fuck and has so many layers it's mindboggling.

I was blown away by Providence. It's exceptionally good - I love Alan Moore to fucking death, but I'd gotten to the point where I didn't really ever expect him to make a comic book with that much love and craftsmanship ever again. It's like League in the level of detail-porn and exhaustive attention to source material, but the story is so much better and more meaningful.

It's new in my heart and everything's cute when it's young, but I think it might be better than Watchmen in most of the ways that made Watchmen great.

What's funny is that the blatant racism is far from the book's biggest problem. It's just complete and utter dogshit, top to bottom. Frank's stuff has always had a conservative slant - everyone just conveniently ignores it in Dark Knight Returns, but it's totally obvious. Now he just phones it in because he thinks he's Frank Miller and even when he wipes his ass on a piece of paper we're supposed to be in awe.

It was supposed to be a Batman story at one time, right? Also, I assume it was never completed because it just sort of ended... unless I got something incomplete off the internet.

I can't remember the ending or too much of anything else about the story, but yeah, it was originally supposed to be a Batman story, and yeah, it was absolutely finished and published. Post the last page if you want, I'll check my copy.

I stayed clear of reviews at that time and, looking forward to a new Frank Miller story, just ordered the hardcover like an idiot... oh man...

sorry to intrude, but i have a question and respect your opinions. I've only read one graphic thing. It was about jack the ripper and it was pretty sick. Anyways, can yall let me know some essentials?
Also, if there are any that don't have rape scenes; I'd like to go through some young readers I happen to know.

There's a bunch at the library in the kid section, so if you could let me know which series don't suck, that'd be great too.
i cut my hand at work and just let it drip on my desk during a conference call -copstache
probably some punk broth - tvbfvs
dames are lousy now mah i gotta bop peckahs -eba
it's been hard to find the focus necessary with all the racket my wife & her boyfriend have been making -necro-meter

Off the top of my head there's definitely no rape in

Mark Millar's run on The Authority
The Courtyard by Alan Moore
League of Extraordinary Gentlemen by Alan Moore
Watchmen by Alan Moore
Identity Crisis by Brad Meltzer
Preacher by Garth Ennis

I'll check back in with more later, those are just a few off the top of my head

Yeah, sorry, but that's all basically Japanese tentacle porn. Really just a particularly disgusting example of cultural appropriation by gross British men.
