Recommended Comics List Of 4 Young Image Fairy Edition

1. I Hate Fairyland #1 (2015) has an interesting premise for a mature readers comic parodying a basic childhood fantasy. The only problem I found with it is a lack of real cursing. Which is a problem because little kids eventually pick up the bad things we adults do. Other than that I found an amusing story with great Ren & Stimpy type art.

2. Mega Man #54 (2015) is well drawn and provides a satisfying kids and up story with good character motivations.

3. Quasar #10 from 1990 is recommended for all ages with the caveat that Eon is scary to certain young readers. I mean I was scared as a kid when reading the comic which introduced Eon's child. Still this is a decent comic where all the characters act intelligently.

4. The Vision And The Scarlet Witch Volume 2 #6 from 1986 is decent in story and art. What makes it a recommended issue is the good example it gives of how Superheroes can have civilian supporting cast members. Also the coolness of realistically elevating a lame villain into an actual threat.

King Tiger Issue 3 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    There are a couple of problems in the visual part of the narrative. In the first panel the helicopter's main rotors are not moving yet it is clearly in flight due to the tail working. Some lines suggesting motion would have negated this being a problem. On the first panel of the tenth story page the reaction shots do from the crowd on the left side do not fully make sense in relation to the action. Now as for the story itself, it is not as fast paced and epic until we get to the first fight scene of the issue. After that it radically becomes epic again, especially when Milo gets to shoot things. We are also told what exactly the large demon is, and it is an awesome cliffhanger reveal.

   Overall the art and color palette are beautifully done. I also feel a College Masters level art class lesson could be given using this issue or this and the first three. Finally the characterization in both the writing and visual mannerisms are part of what make this book a treat. I very strongly recommend this issue!

Book Of Death The Fall Of X-O Manowar Issue 1 Review With Spoilers

Spoiler Warning!

    Compared to the other The Fall Of one-shots this is very weak. It is an enjoyable tale but there are certain problems. First off, there is mention of a false X-O before Aric gives up the title and armor. If Robert Venditti had written one bit explanation in the form of dialogue or a time stamp this could have been fixed. Another thing is the choice of villain takes away some of the awesomeness from the current storyline in X-O Manowar. As for the art it is too minimal when minimalism is utilized. Such as the top panel of the last page. Finally this one-shot's story wraps up a little too neatly considering the villain is a fanatic type.

    I recommend this in trade or a digital bundle, but with the caveat that it is not for the analytical sort of reader.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 39

    In both 1990s dubs Demande and Saphir give off an incest vibe when they are staring at each other. Even the art makes it look like a Yaoi. Another thing I noticed was how stupid the bad guys must be for saying that their crystal is "evil" when that is a clear indicator they are in the wrong. I also think that the English dub is stupid for how obviously edited it is. I mean the first image in the Japanese dub after the opening song is a shadowed female butt. Speaking of changes why is Wicked Lady the best substitution the English dub's crew could come up with for Chibi-Usa's evil form? Just seems tame.

   On a different note why is the time travel easier for the good guys in this episode? Also which of Chibi-Usa's fake memories had more truth versus lie? Were some of the fakes actually bits taken from real bad memories?

Rai Issue 11 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   Issue 11 is thankfully not the last we see of Rai's traveling companion/guide/friend Lemur. I personally view Lemur as the male Faith of Valiant's 41st century in terms of his loyalty. So I would have been sad to see him go, and I hope that his character gets fleshed out in future issues. Also I think the dead AX is an easter egg reference to the AX from Harbinger. My theory is 'Father' is still some version of Harada and he is creating twisted versions of past characters such as AX and Bloodshot (Rai).

   Theories and feelings aside this is a great issue in terms of the juxtaposition between certain characters. Especially with how it reveals how bad at normal socialization Spylocke is in terms of just being friends with people. As for the art it could have used more texture on the faces, which look a tad to surface in certain panels, but overall it is exceptional work. I recommend checking this issue out.

Book Of Death Legends Of The Geomancer Issue 4 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    Despite this comic only being 17 pages of story it is a visual treat with a well told narrative. It is very accessible to new and long-time readers as well as those who have not read the previous 3 issues. The only problem is that for the foreseeable future this mini-series is only a retailer incentive. This means that the beautiful and textured creation/origin story within is not going to be reprinted anytime soon. However those willing to spend the money on this recommended comic will enjoy the Valiant universe's origin of civilization, The Geomancer, and the Eternal Warrior.

X-O Manowar Issue 41 Review

  The faces are good in terms of the expressions, but they are bad in terms of their texture being too smooth. However a few things make this issue great. First is the writing which has real stakes for all characters involved. Though there is one lettering mistake it is a great script with realistic dialogue. Finally the kinetic, fairly realistic feel of the art combines well with the color palette to create a visual treat. I recommend this issue for both new and long-time readers.

The Steam Man Issue 1 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

     The coloring could had a more natural color at times so readers could get used to this alternate steampunk meets science fiction based Earth. Also the narration is pointless exposition due to how unnatural it feels. It would have been better if the writing had just followed the "show, don't tell" rule of visual storytelling. Though to be fair it did speed along the set-up for the flashback scenes. Another nice touch is the lack of bigotry among the crew. However despite the cover promised War Of The Worlds aliens versus a steampunk Earth and delivered only a lame afterthought type sequence. So in conclusion I do not recommend this issue, but I do hold out hope this series could get better.

Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior Advance Review

  This first issue showcases how complex Gilad is as a character. It is very accessible for all types of readers. The set-up is very properly done without feeling like a "paint by numbers" experience. I do believe the dialogue could have been better at times in terms of certain characters' 'voices.' Finally the art is beautiful and features great design details for the story's scenes. I recommend this issue for all readers of the Teen Plus and up age range.

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Manga Volume 2 Opinion Piece

   'She's A Rainbow is interesting in terms of how it could be used in an analysis of modern media or quitting while ahead of a bad situation. However as a story it is really weak because it rushes towards a conclusion. 'Bebop Special Short' is just lame filler material. Finally 'Great Deceiver' 'Thinking Bird, Happy Song' and 'Like A Rolling Stone' are quintessential Cowboy Bebop tales that I would love to see a Live Action fan film adaptation of or if possible an official anthology movie.

Power Cubed Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoiler

    The cover promises more than the issue delivers, especially because this is a mini-series. Also I feel the reverse Stockholm syndrome reason for how the Alien turned human for love of a woman fails. Just feels too rushed in an attempt to both make a joke and explain the Father's background. Arguably the writing is barely competent compared to last issue. As for the art I noticed a few flaws but nothing truly problematic. In conclusion I do not recommend this issue.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 38

    This episode felt weird for a few reasons. Esmeraude's death scene is just odd in how it is animated. Also the computer scene resemble a lot of eighties and nineties anime in how the graphics look. Not to mention while I like the headache comment Wiseman makes in the English dub the rest of the dub just does not work with the animation. I think this is a very Japanese type episode that loses some sense when translated. It is sort of like Power Rangers Samurai in that sense. Finally did Chibi-Usa have to go so willingly with Wiseman in this version of Sailor Moon? I mean she basically pulls an Anakin Skywalker by making the decision to join evil cause she was definitely not under mind-control here.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 Issue 20 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    Megan Levens cartoon style is more realistic now. It still has a very cartoon story board feel to the style but if you look at the small details you will see I am right. For example Buffy's nose has the same non-average shape as Sarah Michelle Prinze (Gellar). Even the minimalism is good. However the story topic is one that needs a trigger warning for real people. Also it should not have been regulated to one issue seeing that surviving rape or even attempted rape is a very heavy subject. It is because of this that I only tentatively give this recommended status.

Unity Issue 23 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The art is great in terms of line work and staying on model. A competent job was also done by the colorist and letterer. However the writing while generally good is weak in two areas. One area is development and the other is character individuality. The former is a problem due to there being practically no set-up for the angry scientist at G.A.T.E.'s base. Also Armor Hunter Helix's powers and abilities are not well-defined. In terms of the lack of character individuality I feel that the guards and scientists came off too much like stock characters. Yes, they are stock characters, but an audience (readers) should not be reminded of that while enjoying a story. Despite these problems I feel this is a good issue and I recommend it.

Ninjak Issue 8 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  Ninjak can still be very surprised if Neville's sudden appearance at the end of the main story is anything to go by. In fact this is a perfect example of how little we know about Neville. Despite the lack of development on Neville we do get a lot of development on Ninjak and one of the Shadow Seven. I especially like the development on the Monk and his teachings.

  As for the art I found the visuals to be smoother for the main story. While the second story is sketchy but very textured. Both have excellent coloring jobs that help with the tones of each story. Speaking of the main story I noticed a visual cue to one of the previous issues that long time readers will enjoy.

My verdict: This is a very recommended comic!

Book Of Death Issue 4 Advance Review

   Well, the things that happen in this issue somewhat redeem the whole series. Though I think this issue had the best dialogue, moments and art in the main mini-series of the event. However, it is still beaten by the auxiliary titles such as Book Of Death: The Fall Of Ninjak. I do think the art is cleaner and sharper than any of the previous three issues. Simply beautiful work here. It also definitely has some things happen that I did not expect. Finally I recommend this series in trade, because while this is a recommended issue it still needs the previous issues to fully enjoy it.

Recommended Comics List Of 4 King Of Avengers Edition

1. Avengers #0 printed in 2015 is great for tying several different openings to different titles together with one title acting as the through-line. Very impressive! Though the New Avengers story is not for everyone.

2. Avengers #333 from 1991 is not the most epic in terms of visuals, but it is a good eight and up comic. It is most successful at showing that both heroes and villains can care about other people.

3. The Prisoner Book C, also known as issue 3, was published in 1988 and is as visually revolutionary in 2015 as it was then. Though not as accessible as Book A, also known as issue 1, it still presents enough information to please fans of the original television show. Recommended for fans of said show and those who have at least read issue 1.

4. Doctor Who: The Twelfth Doctor #13 (2015) is a very accessible issue in-spite of it being the second part of a four parter. The art is simply grand in terms of the detail of line work in creating texture. As for the writing I have to say the dialogue feels like a part of an actual episode of the series. I would recommend this issue to most Sci-Fi fans ages eight and up, except those with fears involving fires.

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episode 8 Opinion Piece

  I feel that the acting is better expressed in the Japanese Dub. The English dub just felt too reliant on the music and sound effects at times. Not to mention I think the subtleness in the acting of the Japanese dub really helps the episode's subtler scenes such as the tea scene. As for questions I only have two: Why was the criminal brother not effected by the Venus Sickness? I mean were they really half siblings, or was there something else that made her differ on a genetic level?

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Film Manga Volume 1 Opinion Piece

    Waste of money! Just a money grab based on Cowboy Bebop, anime, and manga's popularity at the time of publication. Rehashes the first two episodes in a way that feels like bad storyboarding. Though the interview with Steve Blum is slightly interesting it still does not justify the making of this book. Who thought this was a good idea?

Bloodshot Reborn Issue 7 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The coloring provides a sort of mood-lighting of 'American Gothic' quality. Add in the Hunter's look at the end and you have a really creepy issue. As for the art by Butch Guice, it is very textured and consistent on the faces. However it is a little looser on the line work than I would like. The writing is best in the dialogue and characters not acting stupid portions. Though it is weakest at creating empathy for the latest victim of the Hunter character. Overall I recommend this issue for those who are searching for a good horror story featuring tech powered people.

Barb Wire Volume 2 Issue 4 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   This issue has a twist I did not see coming and this is because it is hidden in its obvious nature. Basically like a loose pipe in a plumber's nightmare of pipes. As for the dialogue it is very natural and allows the comic to have Highs (lighter moments) and Lows (darker moments). The characterization is at its best in the visual cues and expressions within the issue. If there is one flaw with this issue's story it is the way it ends in a very made for the collected edition way. This is to say that Barb Wire Volume 2 could have ended here and no one who does not track sales would be the wiser as to the reason why it happened. Thankfully this is not the last issue and I expect good things if this level of quality can be maintained.

   My verdict: Very Recommended!

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 37

  I think the whole second ice age hitting and Sailor Moon not doing anything until the 30th century plot point is stupid. I prefer the simply and less contrived explanation given in Sailor Moon Crystal. I mean at least Crystal has a less rapist version of Prince Demande. Not to mention that both the English dub and Japanese dub give no real explanation for what Esmeraude did or did not do to aid the heroes escape. The only good thing about this episode is the visuals and the progression of the plot.

  Questions! Does Diana exist in this version of events? Did the Japanese Dubs writers not understand how long evolution can take?

Imperium Issue 9 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The art for this issue is arguably best during the attack by LV-99 due to the kinetic feel of the water. Though the rest of the book has awesome line work as well. As for the writing one truly has to think like a pragmatist in order to fully enjoy this issue. This is because Harada does both good deeds and a very bad thing that could result in good. However the possessed scientist Harada is trusting is probably going to defect to the Vine army. Speaking of which I actually feel for the naive vine spy and her mother. In conclusion I highly recommend this issue due to how much real world meets fictional events this issue showcases and thus creates more development than the big two.

The Goon Theatre Bizarre Review With Spoilers

Spoiler Warning!

      Zombo does not get much meat to his character in this issue of The Goon. Though he does get a moment of creepiness that adds to his imposing look and the mythos at the beginning of the book. However what this has to do with the upcoming 'Lords Of Misery' storyline is a mystery which dents the quality of this book. Overall though this is a well drawn and amusing Halloween issue that borders the line between humor and horror. Recommended!

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Star Blast Edition

1. Starblast #1 from 1994 has problems on almost every level from editorial to lettering to just clunky  dialogue. Put simply it is a mess from the cover onwards.

2. Captain Nauticus And The Ocean Force #2 published by The National Maritime Center from 1994 has way too many problems. Badly conceived concepts and plotting render this PSA indecipherable as to why it exists. Just avoid this nightmarish attempt at comic book creation.

3. The Dark Avenger story from Phoenix #3 published by Atlas Comics in 1975. This story pales in comparison to the titular character's story in terms of the writing. Also the Dark Avenger lives with his mother and adult brother despite being an adult himself. Finally most of his story is first person narration in thought form.

4. Peter Cannon: Thunderbolt #2 circa 2012 is just all over the place narratively. For example flashbacks occur in a way that seems to be present day at first due to how they were first written. Plus there is too much telling and not enough showing.

Review Of Gun Machine By Warren Ellis

   The pacing is tight yet there are moments where a reader can stop and absorb the details. This is due to the switches in points of view between Detective Tallow and the character known as the Hunter. Speaking of the characters they are all developed to the points the story requires them to be. This does not mean we fail to get a picture of their looks and personality but that they are only developed to certain levels. As for the settings I truly believe that Warren Ellis did a good job of portraying New York and Manhattan. However he does slightly fail to give a sense of the aggressive traffic at times. Though all said I have to recommend this book for those looking for a crime story in the fiction drama with heart and humor. Also I recommend it more for the interactions of the two CSUs and Tallow versus anything else.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 36

     Again we have the Japanese version having an opening sequence that is really unnecessary. I mean we are basically just seeing Chibi-Usa's fears in fantasy form. Though speaking of her fears I think that she was actually going to let go of Usagi's hand in the time travel wind tunnel known as the ancient corridor. Which makes no sense! Another odd thing is that the English dub name changes Luax to Genie. The reason this makes no sense is that if the monster was actually a Genie why would not be able to just grant wishes with magic. Finally I thought Pluto's introduction was lackluster when compared to Sailor Moon Crystal.

     Question: Did anyone else notice that for a brief moment after the battle Luna's eyes are drawn going in the opposite direction of each other?

    Announcement! Apparently Sailor Moon Crystal is getting more episodes. Once they are available to watch I will do opinion pieces on them.

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Order Of Hulks Edition

1. The Order #1 (2002) is just a decently crafted comic. Nothing outstanding worth mentioning except for the fact that it is very accessible for a spin-off comic.

2. Black Lightning #3 (1977) has some grammar mistakes and a Clark Kent appearance that seemingly goes nowhere. However it is a comic book I feel one could hand an eight year old.

3. Phoenix #3 (1975) is recommended for those looking for an out of the box 1970s science fiction superhero tale.

4. The Prisoner: A is also known as book one. Published in 1988 as a continuation of the original television show starring Patrick McGoohan. Presents a good set-up for any reader, but I recommend this only for fans of the show.

The Ghost Fleet Volume 2: Over The Top Review

  My brain is in shock due to the awesomeness of the collected edition. Beyond amazing combination of art, story and colors. No problems on the lettering front. Creative concepts and great dialogue. Also Alex De Campi, who wrote the foreword, needs to start writing his comics with the same style cause his introduction rocked! Expletive level recommended collected edition.

Saturday, October 10, 2015

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Manga Volume 1 Opinion Piece

   I don't fully get the third story's ending with the stash of money and acquiring a "new ship" joke. Just seemed odd. As for the first, I feel that it would have been funnier either as an actual episode or by being longer in length. Although I did enjoy all the stories this volume contained I think the strongest are the first and last ones. However the story titled 'We Will Rock You' Seemed a tad homophobic at times. Even though it has a great ending.

    Questions! How many partners did Jet have in the ISSP? Is Faye really 77 on a cellular level? Cause suspended animation. How much cooperation did Shinchiro Watanabe, the creator of the franchise, give towards this volume's creation?

Girl Meets World Tackles Aspergers

I agreed with the creator of this video so much I asked for their permission to post this, in my opinion, important video. It concerns Girl Meets World's attempt to tackle Aspergers Syndrome and how they failed. If you like this video then check out more of her videos.

Conan Red Sonja Issue 4 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   This is better drawn on the interiors versus the interiors of the past three issues. However the giant monster does not look horrifying, except in a stock way, due to the design and the color choice. Though honestly it is not as bad as the second-rate wizard look the villain has going on. I mean he looks like someone dressed for Halloween or larping. As for the cover it has Red Sonja apparently having broken her skeleton before landing, the villain doing I don't know what, and Conan apparently staring at the text in fear. Finally the writing makes it seem as if this was the final adventure of their lives, or at least the most epic, when they both survive to have more adventures.

   I don't recommend this issue.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 35

   I am surprised they did not save Chiral and Achiral for the episodes set in the future. Also surprised by the fact that Esmeraude did not have a third point in place in order to complete her plan. The final surprise I found was that the Japanese Dub did not require the opening Memory/Dream. Though the original dub presented in the USA was still horribly stupid in scripting it at least cut that unnecessary scene. I would say people could skip this episode when watching the original English dub, but there are great moments that are key towards the end. Such as Chibi-Usa fighting back in order to save her friend.

   Questions! Did Chiral's summoning of dark energy look like animation from Yu Yu Hakusho in terms of the hand motions and drawing style? Why does Chibi-Usa not know what fighting looks like? I mean she was bullied and not everyone was probably 100 percent peaceful in the future of Sailor Moon. Why did Chiral and Achiral not try and pull at least one of the Sailor Scouts into the pavement?

This Damned Band Issue 3 Day Of Mini-Review

   There is not much I can say except that there is a vast improvement on the art in that it does not look rushed. Although the writing was okay it still had problems. Mainly that the series finally starts feeling slightly horrific with this issue, but then it ends in such a way that it feels like a penultimate issue instead of a middle of a mini-series. Also it is not really that scary because I still have yet to be given a reason to care about these characters. In conclusion I do not recommend this issue, unless you   are a fanatic of a member of the creative team.

Captain Midnight Issue 22 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The cover is arguably the best in terms of the art for this issue. It has action, and despite a lack of background, depth of frame. Whereas the interiors look smudged in places, such as the first story page. Also in some panels characters sometimes look like they have twisted their necks to the point of breaking. As for the dialogue, it is okay except for the description of The Mark's past. Which I think may be a fiction in some way due to several inconsistencies Mark stumbled through in telling his origin. However this is done in such a way that his "origin" should have been questioned by Captain Midnight. Finally the crossover with X just does not amount to anything of substance.

   I do not recommend this issue, unless you are a completist.

Tuesday, October 6, 2015

The Goon Once Upon A Hard Time Issue 4 Advance Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    This comic is rich in visual texture. There are no problems with the lettering. In fact there is only one problem which is that this is a pretty close to standard comic for Eric Powell. The saving grace is that it has three standout moments. Goon apparently breaking the fourth wall while actually talking to another character out of frame is the first. Secondly the way the big battle concludes. Finally the years prior/later segments provide a depth for the issue and the Eric Powell's lore.

   I recommend this issue.

The Witcher Fox Children Issue 1 Review

   The texture has either been muddied by the colorist or the artist simply failed to add enough of it. Either way there is not much variation in texture for each part of every panel. However what is clearly an art mistake is when the 180 degree camera rule is broken in the issue. As for the writing it feels more like it should be spoken by a video game actor versus read for pleasure. In other words it is very stilted. Finally the story fails to start immediately due to what seems to be section breaks of story versus a full one issue. Thus I do not recommend this issue of The Witcher Fox Children.

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episode 7 Opinion Piece

   I love the Heavy Metal music featured in this episode! Also I prefer the English dub over the Japanese dub for this episode of Bebop. Though I do think both voice actresses of VT sound somewhat similar in their vocals and delivery. I also think the Toy Story/Disney parody with the kid restaurant was amusing. As was Decker looking like Woody Allen. Finally I think the waitress's personality was funny in terms of what they did, but bad in that it was stereotyping.

   Questions! How many people have posted speculations about how VT's husband died? Does the creator of Cowboy Bebop have something against Woody Allen? Why wasn't there more Heavy Metal playing in this episode? Why was the eel tattoo guy made into someone with a sexual fetish for eels in the English dub, while in the original he seems to be just a cartoon fan?

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Marvel Storm Conditions Edition

1. Hellstorm: Prince Of Lies #1 from 1993 is a relatively decent issue that shows the potential for two of Marvel's supernatural characters. The art could be less scratchy looking in certain panels but is decent overall. There is a little bit of a problem with the word count, but not enough to cause the issue to fail. In the end this is an intriguing example of a comic straddling the line between good and bad taste.

2. Spider-Gwen #1 (2015) is very accessible for new readers. Also it has strong characterization in the dialogue and art.

3. Princess Leia #1 circa 2015 is a good take on the Star Wars character. Perfect for teens, though I am not sure if the following issues are suitable for tweens.

4. Silk #1 from 2015 is not entirely accessible to oncoming readers. However the first issue is decent and can be picked up in a one dollar price range thanks to Marvel's 'True Believers' initiative. This is another good read for teens.

Zodiac Starforce Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    The cover is more Scooby-Doo horror versus magical girl in what it suggests about the interior story. This being said I think this issue is much better paced and written than the first one. I especially like how there is room to breathe and take in the characters personalities. Also where issue one felt like an info dump this feels like a book worth collecting. Another reason I liked this issue is the Sailor Moon reference hidden in the beautiful interior art. Finally the fact that it has strong and diverse looking females leads.

    My verdict: recommended, though not for bigots!

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 What The Grodd Rogue Edition

1. The Flash #155 (1965) is hindered from being a good story by the gorilla segments. Also the fact Flash suddenly has the ability to see radiation when that has nothing to do with super-speed or control of his molecules.

2. Bucky Barnes: The Winter Soldier #11 (2015) This issue solidifies that this whole series is a waste of money. It doesn't even have a story that makes sense. Also it leaves too many questions in the air. Finally one would need to have read all the previous issues in order to understand any of the events in this issue.

3. Sonic The Hedgehog #276 (2015) just feels like a filler issue. Not to mention that both stories end very abruptly.

4. Faster Than Light #1 (2015) is slowly paced and has too much filler mixed with the set-up of the main plot. The art, while realistic, is too similar to a storyboard and thus it lacks the illusion of kinetic motion.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon R Episode 34

   After I get done with this post I will never talk about the original English dub of this episode again. It's just so stupid! I mean the Japanese dub at least made sense, even with the lousy droid/monster and the barely there plot. The original English dub on the other hand is edited to garbage level and the script is just...Insert screaming and cursing while crying. Finally I only have one question: if Usagi is such a bad student does that mean Ami and Mamoru actually run the future Crystal Tokyo?


  The supplemental section is a relatively decent mix of materials. While the overall creative quality ranged from good to somewhat okay in ...
