Goldfish: historia de un crimen | Brian Michael Bendis
post image
Panpan

Brian Michael Bendis is an otherwise very gifted author. But this passion project noir tale is aggressively mediocre. It traffics in all the clichés of the genre, bad dialogue, cartoonish characters, and stale melodrama. The art is a stark black and white, but executed with a less than steady hand. When compared to the work of Frank Miller, arguably the godfather of this style comic, reveals the pale imitation this book really is. Don‘t bother.

Black Science Vol. 1 | Rick Remender

Every issue of Black Science has clear dramatic stakes. Character growth emerges from pulse-pounding action. Remender stays away from likable protagonists, but Grant is complicated and dynamic. You never know what will happen next as the Pillar jumps the team through reality.

Black Science Vol. 1 | Rick Remender

Black Science is a throwback to pulp sci-fi. It has weird creatures, a cast of space voyagers with competing interests, and a mad scientist protagonist caught between his quest for knowledge and his family.

Creepshow | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

A ghoulishly fun graphic novel adaptation of the Stephen King-penned Creepshow, this little number is bursting with prosaic and artistic style pulled straight from the pages of the '50s-era horror comics that inspired it. While these are not the most clever stories King has written, there are some standouts, including "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill", "Something to Tide You Over", and "They're Creeping Up On You". 4/5

This was an interesting read. I haven‘t really ever read any graphic novels before, but I found this to be a compelling story. I‘ve always been a fan of Batman and very much enjoyed reading this story. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Got Absolute Watchmen on a whim from my library and the larger page scale makes such a difference. Gibbons' art absolutely soars from the bigger dimensions.

KathyWheeler I have the Absolute Sandman books and love them for that reason. I‘ve never seen the Absolute Watchmen before though. 2mo

This features the return of Hicks and Newt.

Hicks has turned to alcohol due to his whole team being killed and him feeling the guilt.

Newt is getting psychological treatment, which she's not responding to.

Hicks has requested a mission back to Acheron and he's approved due to his experience, he smuggles Newt onto the ship and they embark on a mission with other soldiers and they race against the time to save the Human Race from itself.

RamsFan1963 I loved Gotham, except for the last episode. No spoilers but you might want to stop at the penultimate episode. 2mo
