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.”

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.”

Quotes #NCBD 2/3/2016 (@451official)

Picked up Bad Moon Rising #5.  It’s really a shame that this is only a six issue limited series. This one was filling that gaping show hole left over by the season finale of Sons of Anarchy.

You can read my review at graphicpolicy.com for more details:

Review: Bad Moon Rising No. 5

“Nembutal, you’re my only friend.”

Quotes #NCBD 1/27/2016 (@451official)

Picked up one new title this week (s6x #3), plus two from last week: Sunflower #3 and ExMortis #3 (I still see a few issues left on the rack so buy ’em if you missed ’em, before they are gone).

In the latest installment from Pelecanos’ and Ewington’s s6x, McQuade recruits more former squad members to Sarah’s cause. The team is slowly coming together for the battle against Señor Martinez’s Cartel. Kind of like a Guns N’ Roses reunion tour, except with real Guns and Roses.

Here are the quotes:


“Nothing like a bit of hillwalking to blow the years of saturated civilian life out of the arteries.”

Quotes #NCBD 1/13/2016 (@451official)

Only two issues left in this mini series as the violence and sex is amped up. Stock up on Silver …

QUOTES FOR #NCBD 12/02/2015 (451 Media)

Sunflower 2, written by Mark Mallouk and Andi Ewington, with eye-popping dazzling Art by Lee Carter (check out that tattoo below) continues CJ’s search to reclaim her daughter Sunflower, who she believes is alive rather than dead, after ten years of believing Rush Bridge had murdered the little girl and her father.

Here’s the quote:


“Shhhhh. Just know we’re going in the correct direction.”

QUOTES FOR #NCBD 11/18/15 (451 Media)

I’m not sure if this is a comic book, a story board, or George & Andi’s subtle pitch to Michael Bay for a new movie. All I know is that the story and art flowed across my visual periphery like an action-packed silent film. This one is gearing up to have it all: elite special ops warfare, cartel machinations, and romance. Can’t wait for issue two.

The only downside: I wasn’t able to pick up the alt cover, so I had to settle for two copies of the original cover.

S6x No. 1

 

Here are the quotes:


“The way I see it religion as a whole is one big gamble. Be like asking a croupier if you should hit or stand.”

“Thank you for calling Hash’s Premium Rent-O-Kill. One of our representatives will be with you shortly. In the meantime we recommend you vacate to a safe distance away from the hostile infestation … and ensure all assholes are securely covered.”
