Still one of my favorite titles. Always love the Gora stuff. Had no idea there was a TV series, just downloaded both seasons.
I watched the two seasons. The show means well, but the budget and the acting are both pathetic. Best part is there was a mildly attractive girl in the first season who got a lot hotter in the second and there's isn't a single scene where she isn't showing off her midriff.


Marvel needs a complete enema. Maybe the writers are uninspired to write tales for the Diversity Squad Disney/Marvel swapped out their icons for, but these new characters are lame as fuck. As are the stories. And why are there like 4 Spider-Men? And 4 Ironmen? And 2 Gwen Stacey's one of which is Deadpool? And why does it take only one issue of a comic for America to fall in line with Hydra who are specifically a sect of the German Nazi Party.

Is that the one Ron Lim did most of the art work for? With the Infinity Gauntlet and all that? Yeah, that was good. I hate new Silver Surfer. It's so precious and wants to be new age Doctor Who so bad, but Dan Slott blew his load with Superior Spiderman and pretty much sucks now.

best character artist.

and the writing. Englehart/Starlin/Marz...

I like the newish Surfer series. I dont know anything about Dr. Who, but seeing Mike Allred pencil one of my all time favorite funnybook characters...its fun, its light hearted, and it keeps me away from the rest of whatever Marvel has going on.

Supergod #1-5 - 8/10

Felt a little derivative of (or if you prefer, influenced by) Alan Moore, but that's really the only criticism I had of it, besides feeling too short and unfinished. I really like stories like this.

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.
