Bloodshot Reborn Issue 0 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Massive Spoilers!


Spoilers begin below! You have been warned!

  This final issue of Bloodshot Reborn provides potential set-up for at least three or four obvious series. Possible titles could be "The Bloodshot Squad," "Deathmate & Festival" or "Deathmate Festival," "The Odd Adventures Of Bloodhound," and finally "Bloodshot Baby." That said there is also closure in a lot of ways. The set-up, cliffhangers for the next series, and closure are weaved together nicely by the writing.

  As for the art it is nicely detailed but could have used more work on the texture of fleshy joints, I.E. Magic's knees. On the other hand we do get a lot of detail on the backside and underside of Bloodhound. (Though nothing gross just enough to suggest Bloodhound is a male dog.) Finally the color palette is a little inconsistent with some panels being lighter or darker than the previous.

  Overall this is a great finale to this onion layer …

Divinity III: Escape From Gulag 396 Issue 1 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    There is seemingly a problem with the main story title having the word "Escape" mirrored for seemingly no reason. However, I believe this is not actually a problem, but a clue about the ending and characters. Though readers of this review will have to read this recommended comic to learn more on that front.

    What I can say for sure is that both stories having small and barely noticeable flaws in characters' heights. In the case of the main story Archer is almost as tall as Armstrong. Thus Francis Portela seemingly forgets that in current continuity Archer is towered over by Armstrong. While Juan JoséRyp has inadvertently positioned The Pioneer in consecutive panels without fully considering panel depth. In other words the positioning sometimes negates some height equaling a slight lack of depth.

    Lastly while the colors and lettering are good overall the writing for the second story is lacking. Specifically because it is just one person tal…

Faith (Ongoing) Issue 9 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The line work is somewhat cubist in style for the majority of the story. To be more precise the lines are strong, thick and slightly angular. Kate Niemcyzk's difference in style really helps bring back the distinctness of Jody Houser and Marguerite Sauvage's creative talents. Speaking of which we get to see some supporting cast fantasies. All this and more combines with the smart dialogue, plot, and thoughts to make this a can't miss issue.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon Super S Episode 26

  This episode is mainly an alternate version of the same short story found in the first volume of short stories from Kodansha Comics. Arguably this is not a terrible thing, but it does suggest that they were sort of lazy with the writing of this episode. Though I will admit the dialogue is a bit different in the Japanese dub and a lot in the original English. Also the dentist seems more evil in both dubs of the anime. Assuming Usagi and Chibi-Usa aren't imagining the final scene. Finally what is up with Chibi-Usa & Usagi savoring sugar by means of not brushing their teeth?

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Goals Of McDuck Edition

1. The PSA comic book The Hidden Killer features Wonder Woman & Superman helping teach kids about land mines. It is honestly the best PSA comic I have ever read. Though Superman's invulnerable presence hurts the story a little.

2. Infinity Inc. #41 (1987) is just good enough in the art and writing to make my ongoing list of recommendations.

3. Sex Criminals #16 (2017) is a good jumping point for this mature/adult rated comic.

4. Walt Disney The Beagle Boys Versus Uncle Scrooge #5 (1979) is a bit dated yet is a good get for those who love Disney, time travel, Uncle Scrooge McDuck, or just a decent kids comic book.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9 Library Edition Volume 3 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This volume is fine for die-hard and regular fans of the franchise, but it contains several flaws. The flaws range from a simple grammar problem to odd sound effect noises to artistic shortcuts. By shortcuts I mean the artist(s) apparently rushed or got lazy. Take for example how during the big final battle there is a panel where Buffy's face is literally just a smily face. That said this is very well-written, colored and paced.

Harbinger Renegade Issue 4 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The coloring is overall nice and smartly selected, but they could have used more of range for the prologue flashback. As for the lettering there is a typo in the flashback. The art also has one possible flaw in the "prediction" scene featuring Harada fighting with a broken wrist and back against an alien. I say possible due to the power level Harada has shown in the past and how it could be he was using his powers like Torque. (In other words I am pointing it out, but not considering it for my final verdict on this comic.) Also I think the art is some of the best the series has had so far in terms of execution, emoting, and consistency.

   While the writing is mainly talking Rafer remembers to have the script make the characters have actions. For example Solomon walking around the table Kris is initially sitting at. Lastly the issue actually correctly uses cliffhanger type ending line of "The Beginning" correctly.
