Comics & Things

A tumblr for comics-related blather (and other things).

I used to do stuff like this for a living... but then I got a real job. Then I kind of missed it a little...

Black Science #7

Northwest Press

The Legend of Bold Riley #3

Big Dog Ink

Shahrazad #9

Big Dog titles are behind in their mailings… so I probably won’t get this until the end of the year … but more Black Science, from Image, is always a good sign.


The ups and downs of Big Two books. It takes me a few issues to get the hang of the artist (only for the artist to switch with the next arc…). 

I really liked Captain Marvel #4, due in large part to the introduction of Ja Kyee (“Jackie”) Lrurt and her candid, fluid personality. In the character’s first scene, David Lopez (artist) does a fantastic job of keeping the woman in constant motion — she’s athletic, she’s bright, and she has prehensile hair. But the best part about this interaction is the small stuff, as when she takes off her right glove to shake hands with Danvers in consecutive panels. Nice, easy, and fluid.
