Shadowman (2018) Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This is a top quality comic! The writing and art tell almost the same story without each other. Combined they form a narrative that stands strong both as part of an ongoing and on its own. As for the color palette it is almost award worthy in terms of the application and selected range. The text is also nicely placed in a way that helps keep a pace for readers.

  However, I think there are a few panels where minimalism and depth could be improved. An example of the former is the bald person running away directly behind Alyssa. While the latter problem of depth involves some of the opening panels having a tad too much. Though these problems are very hard to notice if one is not looking for things like that.

   Very Recommended!

X-O Manowar (2017) Issue 14 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   First off this issue's ending is somewhat predictable and heavily cliched. However, the characterization is well-rounded. As for Aric's father he seems drawn completely wrong given Aric's past as a Visigoth warrior. Though I can't remember if Aric's father was shown before I do know that he looks too much like Matt Kindt. Despite that the art is rather beautiful in most panels, with the exception of the flashbacks having very diluted coloring. Finally Aric's knowledge from race known as The Torment still seems to be forgotten about. This is problematic due to his child's death and the suit releasing radiation in an ocean.

   Not recommended unless you are a die-hard fan of Ariel Olivetti, Matt Kindt or Valiant Entertainment.

Omoikane and others please bless Good Morning Call Our Campus Days Episode 10 Opinion Piece

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This episode is as far as I know the final one, and I feel kind of cheated. Mainly cause we don't get a hint of a wedding, or even just them moving back to the place they originally lived together. Those two things would have made this a somewhat okay series or season (Whichever you want to call it). Instead we just get an endpoint that tells us they went on some trip, had sex, and made new friends out of rivals. In other words not much happened to justify this continuation of Good Morning Call.

   Questions! If this series continues should Netflix and Fuji Television just make a movie where the main characters just get married? Personally that is really all I can see them left being able to do with this series in terms of comedy and drama. Why did they never talk about the courses Nao and Uehara were taking? Does Nao's mom know about the break-up period, or the deception to win the Beef?

  My final thought is that if this is not continued in some way we…

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Cross War Stars Edition

1. Star Wars #12 (1978) has nice pacing. Also decent art from Carmine Infantino and Terry Austin. Finally Archie Goodwin provides a script that gets the character's personalities and voices right.

2. & 3. Jack Cross #'s 3 & 4, (2005, 2006) are recommended for those who want a comic styled after the television show 24, but with a less nationalistic mentality. Though they should be read after 1 and 2 to avoid ruining the ending.

4. The Kenner Chip-Away Sets advert found on and in certain comics from 1972 (Ex. Hanna-Barbera The Hair Bear Bunch). Its range of colors is delightfully bright. Also it made me actually desire this outdated product that probably wouldn't live up to the ad's hype.

Robotech (2017) Issue 6 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  While all of the covers are quality work I have to point out that Lisa Hayes's lower facial features on Cover A (by Giannis Milonogianis) are a little too minimalistic. Speaking of facial expressions Khryon shows a little too many teeth while shouting orders. The last flaw is both a script and art problem with the final few pages suggesting either past or future events. However, It is only a problem due to this being a monthly part of the story arc and not a collected version.

  Overall I think the art, pacing, colors, and writing all on point. The lettering is nicely placed but could be a little better in select areas. Finally the mysteries of Mars Base & Rick Hunter's eyes are very much reasons to buy this series.

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Night Crawling Fog Edition

1. The Incredible Hulk #126 (1970) has some realistic dialogue mixed in with mostly overly dramatic  dialogue. This ends up with an even feeling story. Also the ending feels too final for Bruce Banner/Hulk's and Doctor Strange's first meeting.

2. Star Wars #9 (1978) is extremely over-written to the point of almost crowding out the art. While the art itself is rather mediocre.

3. Morlock 2001 #2 (1975) spoils the end of this story on page one. Also the story is dated by using 2001. Finally the protagonist is not very likable even though the writing tries to make us pity him.

4. The Cougar #2 has a status quo changing ending that doesn't really work due to the origin also being in this issue. Not to mention the time of events is wonky due to characters traveling too fast from one location to another.

Quantum + Woody! Issue 5 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The amount of negative space and way some of the pages are laid-out will probably anger certain readers. However, those reading the physical copies will probably find the most enjoyment when it comes to those possible problems. In terms of other problems the summary could have used some punching up at its beginning.

  On the plus side, we get an interesting back story for Negative One's face mask. Also weird experiments and the return of Keith (still missing a tooth) provide fun and shocking moments. In other words the great bits of this issue out-weigh the bad by far.
