Weblog Commenting and Trackback by

Friday, January 07, 2005


Added to the side-bar:

The well-written and engaging Clea's Cave.

The quite amusing Giant Fighting Robot Report.

New blog Trade Whore is off to an impressive start, and is already having a contest. All you have to do to win a copy of the excellent Gotham Central trade is send in your nomination for worst comic of 2004 by Jan. 16.

Speaking of contests, you've all entered Laura's contest for a copy of the very entertaining Jeff Nicholson fantasy series Colonia, right? Deadline is Jan. 20, and all she asks of you is a 50 word or less essay about using comics as an educational tool.

Lastly, I'm really happy to discover the new blog Bear in the City. Not only is he another gay comics blogger, but he's a bear blogger as well, and he's got several very nice links to gay art and comics up already.

JSA #68: I'll be polite and say that the Alex Ross cover does nothing for me. There was a lot of talk about the appropriateness of the violence in this story, and it does seem to largely serve no other purpose than to impress upon the reader that Per Degaton is now "hardcore", but since the story involves time-travel and has the cosmic reset button written all over it, I have a hard time taking it too seriously.

Wild Girl #2: Man, I have put off reviews for a while, #3 just came out. People seem to be bothered a bit by the lack of exposistion in this title, but I don't mind it at all. The main character doesn't have any clue what's going on, why should the reader? In any case, I find the story pretty compelling, and the art is wonderful.

Angeltown #2: The cast is still being gathered and assembled, and the relationships, and more importantly the double-crosses, between the characters is fleshed out a little more. Vertigo has had pretty good luck impressing me with their mystery titles, and this modern noir set in LA is worth a look, especially for Shawn Martinbrough's art.

She-Hulk #10: The origin of Titania and her feud with She-Hulk is explored, and I never thought I'd see the specter of the Secret War used to good effect in a Marvel comic. Good, fun stuff.

Fables #32: A visit from an unexpected relative and a mysterious figure stalking the fables complicates matters for our casts at the Farm and in Fabletown. About the only thing that would have improved this issue is more Reynard.

ps238 #9: Tyler, the boy with no super powers, receives his first week-end of training with the super-hero mentor assigned to him. It's an excellent, grin-inducing comic, and the back-up story is a reminder as to why you should never fully trust Zodon.

Full Frontal Nerdity Annual #1: Another Aaron William's book, this one venturing into Knights of the Dinner Table and Dork Tower territory to give us jokes about gamers themselves. It's got plenty of the funny, but it's very gamer-centric, and maybe not for everyone as a result.

Dangerous #3: Gay porn comics from Sin Factory. The stories illustrated by Thundertori and Pluto have some very nice manga-style art, and the cover is very attractive.

Demo #12: The conclusion to Wood and Cloonan's marvelous series of stand-alone tales. It's tempting to read the book as a summation of all that has gone before, especially with that slightly ambiguous ending, but I think that does a disservice to the romanticism of this story. It's an excellent conclusion to one of the best comics to be published last year. And that back-up, where Wood and Cloonan swap out the writer/artist roles: very nice.

Girl Genius #13: Agatha gets to know her new traveling companions as danger strikes and new mysteries are revealed. Phil and Kaja Foglio's fantasy series is one of my favorite regular comics, and it's hard to resist a cute girl with glasses tinkering around with things Man Was Not Meant To Know.
