Interlude 2017

It’s been a while since my last blog.  A lot has happened.  Trump, for better or worse is our president, my job has been reorganized and I lost a few peers in the workplace, and sadly … my dog passed.  As a result my comic book readings stalled for a while (and piled up in a dark recess of my home), as I dealt with some difficult life changing events.   Thankfully my pull list @MidtownComics remained in place.

Nonetheless, I’ve made some changes to my comic book reading preferences between now and then.  Their is now a marked decrease in my weekly Marvel pulls (still some gems there though); but I also made some new additions across some DC and Independent titles.

I’m also going to try a different tact within this blog.  I’ll continue publishing quotes, but now will do so within a written review–seems to be the thing to do to sing the praises of your favorite current book.  The reviews will use a basic 10 scale scoring system, with a ‘BUY’ or ‘READ’ recommendation (albeit it will be more intuition than science for me).

Also, unless I say otherwise, you can safely assume I purchased any book I review.  I’m not for sale; I buy my comics with my hard earned dollars workin’ for The Man.  In addition, I plan to change the look and feel of this blog site, but that’s a work in progress–keep an eye out for that, it’s coming sooner than you think.

AND in that vein check out my first review of 2017 on 451 Media’s Red Dog #3

REVIEW: Red Dog #3 – 451 Media

What’s better than a robotic dog with a 6668 Quantum Processor brain and Nikocell S474
camera eyes … a networked pack of robotic dogs with 6668 Quantum Processor brains RedDog3_Back2 1and Nikocell S474 cameras eyes.  In Rob Cohen’s Red Dog, adapted by Andi Ewington, the wolfpack takes on a new meaning as this team of cyber hounds come together under young Kyle’s expert training.RedDog3_Hounds

This cinematic and entertaining western themed sci-fi read comprises all the good basics: an off-world mining colony on the dusky planet Kirawan; shared by its new human residents and primitive war-like indigenous bug-eyed alien population. Kyle, the only child on the planet, does his best to survive amongst the adult population, alongside his superior engineered robotic K-9 companions, and slightly dysfunctional family.

The plot is familiar, but the vivid visuals and fast-paced story telling keeps you hooked wanting for more.  After all. who can’t relate to the love of a young boy for his android dogs.

Here is the quote:


“Hang on Red … I’m coming for you …”

451 Media’s s6x #7 and #8

Running a few weeks behind, I finally managed to catch up with my stack, closing the book on the final two issues of s6x.  Written by George Pelecanos and Andi Ewington, with art by Ty Dazo and Mack Chater (and covers by Ben Oliver) this mini-series pushed McQuade’s team to its Zen ending of no ending.  Sacrifices were made, battles were won and lost, and secrets were revealed; but the war against the Cartel continues.

This is a fantastic action-packed read, especially if you are into the special operations military genre.  If you missed the print copies, check out their website for digital details; and perhaps, who knows, a TPB offering may be in the works for the future.  I’ll keep an eye out for you.

 

Here is the final quote:


“We live as One. We die as Six.”

Elana Guests on Blastr’s Who Won the Week

Graphic Policy

This week, special guest Elana Levin joins Blastr for a discussion of a couple of big changes in the sci-fi canon: Riri Williams taking over for Tony Stark as Iron Man in Brian Michael Bendis’s post-Civil War II run, and the announcement that a well-known character would be written as gay in the upcoming Star Trek Beyond. Are these good steps toward a more diverse and inclusive genre? They break it all down.

We’re Here: Black Women Working in Comics

Graphic Policy

Invincible_Iron_Man_1_by_Jeff_DekalI’ve been a writer as long as I can remember. My mother recalls me sitting quietly in the living room taking construction paper, a hole puncher, yarn, crayons and writing and illustrating my ‘first’ book at 6 years old. As I grew, the stories I wrote became more thoughtful, more complex and somehow I landed in the arena of comics. Comics became my refuge at an early age; granted I’ve always read different types of books and novels, but comics stole my heart. They combined art with the written word; I was just thunderstruck by the perfection of the blending of the two. Creating characters was an ongoing practice for me, at 10 years old I was certain that Marvel or DC would want to buy my characters. My mother even called the Marvel offices for me to see if they would be willing to. Now here I am several…

Review: Kim and Kim #1

Graphic Policy

kimandkimcoverTurn on some Sleigh Bells (Veruca Salt if you’re old school) or the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack, and get ready to be amazed by Kim and Kim #1. The new Black Mask series from writer Mags Visaggio, artist Eva Cabrera, and colorist Claudia Aguirre follows the adventures of Kim Q and Kim D, a pair of fast-talking, fashion forward, and not afraid to cave your face in with a musical instrument bounty hunters. As they travel the Omniverse in their flying van, they try to avoid any entanglements on the way to pay dirt, but of course, this doesn’t happen, and thus the comic has a plot. The story of ne’er do wells trying to stay solvent in a dangerous sci-fi setting has been told several times before in shows like Firefly and Cowboy Bebop, but Visaggio, Cabrera, and Aguirre put their own mark on the genre with a candy floss…

QUOTES #NCBD 03/30/16 Ragnarok No. 8 (@IDWPublishing)

Reading Walter Simonson’s Ragnarok is like time traveling back to the comic book years of the  80’s. It’s non-stop sword and hammer action as the Dark Elf Regn and Thor team up to take on Surtr’s Firestarter Demons. Plus, as a bonus, IDW threw in at the end an awesome eight page art gallery highlighting Simonson’s pencil and ink artwork for this issue.  Don’t miss out!

Here are the quotes:


” … with a name like “The Lord of the Dead,” just how much Immortality do you think he could bestow upon anybody?”

“Faith. You should try it. I understand it works wonders.”

Quotes #NCBD 3/30/2016 s6x (@451official)

The team has finally landed on the Cartel’s chessboard nicknamed ‘Mexico’. Andi Ewington’s slow ride is coming to a crescendo, as both sides do their due diligence of intelligence gathering. I can’t wait until the next issue where the action is sure to start, with new special forces pawns entering the fray. If you missed this issue, definitely do not forego the next–and best of luck finding the first five issues, they’re worth the search.

 

 

Here are the quotes:


“You don’t mind drinking our of a brown paper bag for once, do you …”

“If it was good enough for the Lord’s only son, it’ll be good enough for your ungrateful heathen ass.”
