In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon S Episode 17

This episode has a weird monster, because both the name and design do not match the object used to make the creature. Heck the word "Heel" would have been a more apt name than 'Hurdle" due to where most of her body is connected to the giant shoe. Speaking of monsters the one shown in flashback made me think that someone had watched too much tentacle hentai. Of course this adds more evidence to my theory that the first movie and this series/season were done by a highly perverted crew. I am glad we will not see this sort of junk in the upcoming second season of Sailor Moon Crystal!

   Questions! How many other fans think of the monster oven as something inspired by the easy bake oven and/or theKyōryū Sentai Zyuranger monster creation process? Am I the only one who wanted to gag at the lame changes made for the original English dubbing? Shouldn't Elsa Gray have been called out on her lecherousness? How many fictional celebrities have the main characters saved by…

Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior Issue 5 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

This story is sort of jarring in terms of how it cuts away from where the first story arc leaves us. For example instead of being in present day, where the first story left off, this story takes place way back in the past. Also the story is more detailed in terms of the amount of texture and depth versus the first arc's more simplistic design work. As a whole this issue's narrative is more of one long widescreen movie montage. In other words it is a quick read that is telling the possible beginning of a character's origin, but at the same time is a breather and jumping on point.

   My verdict: Recommended!

Bloodshot Reborn Annual 2016 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The summary suggests a somewhat different set of stories than what is contained within the Annual. Though this is not to say that the comic is bad just that it is not what is promised at its beginning. Despite the problematic opening I think the stories are pretty solid. Each narrative is very experimental with two being definite in-continuity stories, but all of them providing a humorous take on other media products. For example the constant reboots and overly large events by the bigger companies is handled in the Bloodsquirt centric story. Though my favorite stories feature a character called "Jacob" who steals the show in my opinion, especially with the extremely dream-like art style of his second story. In other words this is a highly recommended issue!

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Apes Fail Punisher Edition

1. Marvel Apes #1 (2008) is poor in terms of writing and art. Examples being the word count and the Gibbon pre-transformation flashback panels. Also if I remember right the lettering has problems as well, though I could be wrong about this part. Finally the concept comes across like a simple cash grab.

2. Punisher #1 from 2009 is just another example of how the Punisher would never be allowed to kill a major villain. In this case the original Norman Osborn a.k.a. the original Green Goblin. Also Sentry is in this and he is/was a terrible rip-off of Superman. Mainly due to how he (The Sentry) is inconsistently written, which is something I have stated before.

3. Infinity Inc. #25 from 1986 has two significant problems. One is having to address the changes wrought by the then recent finale to Crisis On Infinite Earths, while in the same issue they had to tell a regular story as well. Though the main problem is that Todd McFarlane's pencils are clearly visible under inks of Tony DeZun…

Usagi Yojimbo Issue 153 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The flooded village setting of the story is too similar to a recent previous issue. Also the explanation of the Kappa myth should have been provided just a little bit more in the story versus the letters page. A final problem is located on the cover with the renegade Kappa's 'bowl' looking like it has a side opening. Despite these problems the issue is overall quality work that is entertaining and informative.

  My verdict: I recommend this issue for long time readers, irregular readers, and young comic readers.

Ninjak Issue 13 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    This issue has three times it kind of fails in the text. Two times it is because Matt Kindt apparently left out a word, sentence or paragraph that is needed to keep a logical flow happening. Thus the story and summary jump ahead and this jars the reader out of the comic. The third time is the unnecessary usage of Master Darque's name and title in "The Lost Files" story. However, the stories are still entertaining enough to read.

   As for the art it is more kinetic in the first story, while the second is more textured. There are more panels having to be used for the subtle details of the first story, and this adds a little to its kinetic feel. Though the second story is more of a character study and thus slower paced due to the lack of action scenes. Finally the colors and lettering are well done.

   My Verdict: The single issue format is recommended only for those who regularly buy this series. While the collected formats are recommended for all…

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon S Episode 16

This episode's original English version sucks the good out and replaces with stupid and suck! For example the unnecessary addition of humming during the group power moment during the battle. Not to mention the addition of lines such as at the end scene is a waste of money. This does not mean the Japanese dubbing is perfect, but it is more entertaining and intelligent in presentation. Especially smart and wise was the fact that silence spoke volumes during the train goodbye.

   Question time! Why did Makoto not get a new special attack to use against the monster? Also how did relaxing improve her attacking ability enough to get past the monster's defense? The baddies are just now asking about specifics regarding how to identify the talismans why exactly? Was the Pillow fight a covert perverted moment or just a normal bit of comedy? Cause we have had a lot of unnecessarily crude moments this season and I am a little worried it may have partially been one. Finally how does that…

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 10 Issue 25 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   This issue's twist ending raises a lot of interesting questions and possibilities, except it is poorly set-up. I mean the Anya ghost was established as working for the female demon of the evil trio, but now she never was working for them. Ugh! Also D'Hoffryn has not appeared enough, or even been established as to what his powers actually entail, to be given the season's Big Bad title. While hints of him wanting the magic rule book have been in the series before they have been pretty good reasons.

   There is also the problem that Buffy and the rest of the main cast continue to help a lot of the Big Bads. This problem actually goes all the way back to Season 1 of BTVS with Buffy going to face the Master. If these characters are failing to learn from their mistakes and better stories are being done in fan fictions maybe the franchise should end with the next season. Though I would prefer this franchise to continue with actual character development and…

Fair Voyage Ch: 1 An Independent Comic By Andrea Bell Review

This comic is finely paced and beautifully designed and drawn. However the fact there is a single mild expletive did take me out of the story a tiny bit, and this is because the designs look little kid friendly. Also the dialogue is very close to being realistic with just two degrees off from being completely realistic. Finally there are a few lettering mistakes that if Andrea Bell can fix for printings than this issue will greatly improve. First there is the fact "shield" is misspelt one time. Secondly there are some punctuation and word balloon size problems.

    My verdict: Recommended for those who are fans of Elfquest or fantasy tales. Also I feel that with the help of a patron of the arts Andrea Bell could take the comic book and art industries by storm. As it is I think she may have the makings of a future success story on her own. Though this opinion may change based on what Ch. 2 & 3 are like when I read and review them.

    Note: Andrea Bell's comic can…

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Doctored Doctor Eight Edition

1. Doctor Who The Eighth Doctor #5 (2016) is very accessible while using the set-up of the previous issues. Also it has two great plot twists. Finally there is the awesome art and coloring.

2. Uncanny Inhumans #6 from 2016. This issue has brilliant use of character skills to resolve multiple conflicts. It also possibly has the funniest scene featuring Black Bolt so far in his history in print!

3. When attending a comic convention where cosplayer, artist and colorist AZPowergirl is in artist alley try and see if you can hear her rant about something. Very amusing to witness! Not to mention intelligent and passionate in terms of style of ranting.

4. Allowing Steve Bryant to have some flexibility when getting a custom art commission. Mine turned out great due to this since he was able to de-clutter the original concept, and he made Bowie Merlin more action oriented. Note: While I have the original copy it will be available as a print people can buy from Steve in the near future. I just n…

Faith Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   The fantasy sequences drawn by Marguerite Sauvage are beautifully designed, especially the montage portions. There is more great character development on the supporting cast and even Torque who guest stars in this issue. Faith is realistic in her worries especially how the public might blame her for an explosion. We are even given the reason for why Faith has a day job, which shows character development and a believable thought process. Finally the coloring compliments the smart writing and amazing art.

    My verdict: Definitely a recommended issue that is also still a good jumping on point for this series and story arc.

Ranx Gets English Translation from Dark Horse Comics Press Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MILWAUKIE, OR—Dark Horse Comics is pleased to announce that it will be publishing the classic Heavy Metal series Ranx for the first time in English since its debut in the 1980s. This volume collects all of the Ranx stories by two Italian comic masters, writer Stefano Tamburini and artist Tanino Liberatore. Ranx (also known as RanXerox) is a sci-fi antihero made of photocopier parts and ultraviolence. In a futuristic dystopia, he protects his girlfriend Lubna from vicious drug dealers on a brutal path of sex, carnage, and destruction. The hardcover will be released on November 9, 2016. Preorder your copy today at your local comic book store or favorite retailer. Amazon Barnes & Noble “Tanino Liberatore. Italian. Acid-fueled son of R. Corben.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon S Episode 15

This episode's Japanese dub negatively depicts crossdressing, while the same scene in the English dub disses people cosplaying at work. For those who have not seen the original English dub it gender changed the male tea master. Speaking of bad things in this episode why do we have a boy acting like a total pervert and the monster stripping? None of these things make sense! I also don't get the Crayon Shin-Chan reference in the form of the key chain Chibi-Usa finds. Was there a creative connection? Heck, maybe it was just a bit of foreshadowing for the pervert wreaking havoc. 
   Overall I believe this episode tops the first Sailor Moon movie for unnecessary perverted elements.

Buffy Goes Back To High School Dark Horse Press Release

Mystery Girl Issue 2 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

   First off the problems: The color is a bit lighter on the main character when she is in the shower. Second the friend who is a stripper has a bit of a broken hand in one panel. Other than these two problems this is actually a fairly decent comic for those looking for a more abstract kind of art style. As for the writing it almost stumbled on the villain Linford's investigation sequence, but quickly recovered once one is given a reference to his time frame versus Trine's travel time frame. Finally letterer Marshall Dillon made the train sequence accessible and easy to understand, and thus I declare Dillon a hero of this issue.

   My verdict: Recommended!

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Houser Dog Edition

1. The Uncanny X-Men #197 from 1985 is a done-in-one story, except for the interludes with Storm, Cyclops, and Nimrod. It features some great art minus a few flaws. Also the cover is simple and action-oriented in design. The story is something that young readers can be handed without worries of explicit content. Finally it is not too dated in terms of things like fashion and settings.

2. The Uncanny X-Men #192 is an entertaining issue that sets up future plot elements while having a mostly good narrative. The only major flaw is the time jump forward near the end of the issue. Finally I will warn that there is realistic violence at the end of the issue that may be triggering for certain people.

3. The Miracleman story "Dragons" from Warrior #5 (1982) is a great example of the sidekick/hero turned villain. It is also a good representation of the work done by Alan Moore and Garry Leach.

4. The Miracleman story "The Yesterday Gambit" from Warrior #4 (1982) is a good ti…

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Dogged Houser Edition

1. Sabretooth #4 (1993) while not as bad as issue 3 is still very much an example of why a lot of comics failed to be timeless or just good in the early 1990s. Unrealistic dialogue, a character acting out of character, and tons of artistic flaws.

2. The original animated movie Justice League: Gods And Monsters (2015) is just not something I enjoyed. Thus I will not be recommending it. Even still others might like this and recommend it.

3. The UK comic book story "The Birth Of Marvelman" Marvelman #65 originally published November 13, 1954. Reprinted by Marvel in Miracleman #2 (2014). This story has the logic fail of a child/teenager going off with a random stranger and gaining powers from this bad idea. Also the dialogue is poor and at times uncertain. For example characters will say things that suggest a lapse in thought before continuing on with their dialogue. Finally the story does not always match the visuals.

A & A: The Adventures Of Archer And Armstrong Issue 1 Advance Review With Spoilers

Warning Of One Small Spoiler

   While I found no actual problems with this issueI do have two nitpicks. One is the minimalism could have been a bit less in a few instances. The second is that the summary page is probably going to be skipped over by some readers on the first go through and thus a revelation will be rendered less shocking.

   As for the actual story it is a great bit of entertainment that is very fresh in how it feels. The art is cartoony in design with strong lines and a lot of depth. Both the visual and text-base gags are sure-fire hits. There are also a few "WTH!" moments in this issue that will astound even veteran comic book readers. I would say more but then I would go to spoil the entire issue. Simply put this is an extremely good first issue that I recommend be added to pull lists.

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Norton's Odyssey Edition

1. 2001: A Space Odyssey #5 published Marvel in 1977 is a fun and weird Jack Kirby creation. Simply a great read for non-hardcore fans of the original work, anti-pollution protesters and all lovers of the comics form. It has several future (now near-future) predictions about how society could adapt to a more polluted world. However there are a few tiny flaws in the storytelling, such as the main character thinking of himself in the third person at one point.

2. The cover to Rom #8 (1980) suggests action and mystery while providing few actual details. It has Rom's chest and left shoulder in the aesthetic sweet spot located in the center of the cover. Also great is the fact the villains are obscured in shadow while partially lit by the lightning. There are flaws near the title and brand logos but the eye is easily distracted by the previously mentioned elements.
3. Criminal: The Sinners #4 (2010) is not great but still good. The only real flaw it has is the expositional narration be…

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Volume 8 Manga Opinion Piece

The circus villains are kinda weird in their entrance at the beginning first chapter of the newer story arc, but not as weird as the talking kaleidoscopes. For crying out-loud that is out there even by my standards of magic! Also weird, and gross, is Chibi-Usa still apparently lusting after her father. She is even in Mamoru's bed with Usagi while this is happening. Finally this chapter really confused me regarding the regular transformation versus the super transformation requirements.

   As for the final chapters that Sailor Moon S is based off of I just hope that it is better explained in Sailor Moon Crystal's upcoming second season. Cause otherwise it will be a very short and kind of unfulfilling story arc.

   Keeping the one question I have about the creator to myself to avoid offending her and other fans of the property.

The Big Guy And Rusty The Boy Robot New Edition Hardcover Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  This is bigoted material! It insults the people of Japan by making them appear weak and prideful. Another nation it insults is Thailand with the cover material. Americans are presented as arrogant and "great white hopes" in the first story, while the second story presents them as belligerent idiots. Also a chauvinistic insult is directly said regarding the looks of Queen Elizabeth the 2nd.

   The dialogue is repetitive, jingoistic and annoying in the Frank Miller written story. While Geof Darrow's writing is just annoying. To keep this review from being an extremely long and expletive laden read I will just say that the only good thing about this hardcover is Darrow's artistic flair and the colors by Dave Stewart. Everything else makes this a piece of crap in a sequential art form.


Aw Yeah Comics! Action Cat & Adventure Bug Issue 1 Day Of Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

This issue's art is severely hurt by the photoshopped elements in the comic store setting at the beginning. Though it will probably not matter to some kids, early readers, or even those who are illiterate that just enjoy looking at the pictures. However adults who are literate or overly conscious of aesthetics will be taken out of the story. Finally the way the narrative is constructed is more anthology than what the title suggests. I think Aw Yeah Comics! Anthology Of Fun would have been a more accurate title. This being said the visual and written gags should entertain some young readers, or as I said "those who are illiterate."

   My verdict: Recommended for those mentioned in the positive sentences above.

Bloodshot Reborn Issue 11 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

Lewis LaRosa's art is not as precise during the beginning scenes, but he does give an honest and good enough explanation in the commentary that I will only deduct a half point. That being said the art is still great to admire and good enough that it tells the same story as the writing. As for the writing it borders on the fringe of Unforgiven (1992) and Old Man Logan (2008-2009) territory. Luckily this tale has a good number of different concepts and cliches to make it original enough that it barely avoids being a retread. Finally the color palette was slightly hurt by the lack of precision, but it is still a good selection.

   My verdict: recommended for completist and those already reading Bloodshot Reborn. Though I am not sure if non-Valiant fans will enjoy it.

Captain Midnight Issue 24 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The finale issue wastes the build-up that the last few issues, and certain stories from X and Skyman, created. To be specific there is no sudden alien invasion and no defeat of The Archon. While the former was expected not to be resolved in this issue the latter was something that needed to happen. Without The Archon being either killed or incapacitated and imprisoned the story built to nothing.

  Another problem is that the opening pages waste space on a flashback that serves no point. Said wasted space could have been better used to give an explanation of how in the world Captain Midnight survived certain death. I mean he is a human character with the limitations of a human, and yet he survives being in the center of an explosion. There is no explanation as to how he is alive on the last page. Heck, The Archon actually suspects Captain Midnight of sabotage via an explosion yet has no reason to believe Midnight is alive. In other words this issue is severely il…

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episodes 25 & 26 Opinion Piece

In a way I think this is actually a three part finale with the 24th episode "Hard Luck Woman" being the unofficial beginning. Mainly because of the bar scene at the beginning of Episode 25. However, it is also because the characters really lose their innocence in various ways, such as Ed and Ein leaving for good, in episode 24. Though Spike really loses his innocence after the deaths of Annie and Julia in Episode 26.

   Speaking of Julia she is not really a female character designed simply to die because of how much weight she gives to the story, Not to mention how she affects the main cast every time she is brought up in the series. She feels like a well-developed character to me because of the reasons I listed above this sentence.

   As for Episode 26 I think it has to be watched with Episode 25 in one's native language in order to get the full impact. Especially for all the subtle details like the Bruce Lee poster (25) and Bull's playstation (26). Though any vi…

Angel & Faith Season 10 Issue 16 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The writing is great and very accessible for this issue. However, the regular cover has two people with broken backs playing a sport and the interiors also have instances of broken back syndrome. Another art problem is the way certain visuals are angled in the panels. For instance the first panel has a weird angle that may be the reason Faith's right nostril looks misshapen. Not to mention the lack of background in the picture spotlighted in the two panels that follow the first one. Finally there is the issue of hair texture such as when Faith is ordering coffee. It looks too obvious that it is line work.

  If there was one less artistic problem in this issue I would have recommended it, but while it is enjoyable it is not recommended.

Not Recommended Comics List Of 4 Sexism Sucks Edition

1. Supergirl #9 from 1973/1974 is chockful of racist and sexist material.

2. Rise #1 published 2015 by Double Take, LLC. This issue is not as bad as most of the first issues from this company, but it has three problems. First is the interlude in Washington D.C. has no time stamp or mention of location so there is no way to know certain information. The next problem is that the zombies are called ghouls and this is contrary to the other titles set in this universe. Finally the opening page with the credits has a pointless comparison between 1966 stats and 2015 stats. These statistics have nothing to do with the story.

3. Sabretooth #3 (1993) is a great example of a bad comic in almost every way. There are only two bits of character development that actually keep this from being a total disaster. I suggest it be avoided unless one needs it for reference material of some kind.

4. "Introducing Kid Marvelman" was published July 30, 1955 in Marvelman #102. It is a horribly rushed …

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episode 24 Opinion Piece

Questions and Wonderings! Was this episode supposed to be a way to possibly continue the Cowboy Bebop brand with Ed and Ein as the leads? Cause it does suggest that at the end right before the credits. Another thing I am wondering about is if the movie Cool Hand Luke had anything to do with the egg scenes. I mean the egg eating competition in said movie was sort of like the scene featuring Jet and Spike. Finally how does such an absent-minded, crazy man still remember he ever fathered a kid?

    The English dub had better voice acting in terms of emotions in the vocals. Also the small changes in dialogue vastly improve things. For example the "fickle heart" saying Jet mentions after Faye's second departure. Though the constant shifting on which character is being focused on is annoying.

    Note: Next update will be up tomorrow night, and it will feature the last two episodes.

Bloodshot Reborn: The Analog Man Director's Cut Issue 1 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

Original Edition Review With Spoilers

   This edition has a mostly appealing visual experience for those wanting a look at the "bare bones" of Bloodshot Reborn #10. Though the red sound effects in edition somewhat jar the reader out of the narrative. However as I said this issue is more for those wanting a deeper look into the process of comic book art. There are also script pages that are more for those looking for differences between the perspectives of the writer and artist. In conclusion this is still a good issue, but is mainly recommended for completists and those interested in a deeper look at Bloodshot Reborn #10.

In The Name Of The Moon It Will Be Blogged Sailor Moon S Episode 14

The three kids' "Old Lady" insult (Japanese dub) thrown at Minako is better than the threat about telling their parents on her (English dub) during the fair. Speaking of that moment one kid sounds way too manly in the original English version. Another difference I liked was the main cast's meeting at the table in the Japanese version not being as obvious with the reuse of the straw. Though both versions were okay in terms of dialogue the Japanese version is better for its voice acting and script. Speaking of the script both versions should have given allowed Chibi-Usa to have more screen time after Luna-P's cameo.

   Questions! Does Usagi actually have to spin or have her hands free to use her current main attack? Where was Luna-P in the rest of this episode? What was Chibi-Usa doing during the early fair scenes?

Zodiac Starforce Issue 4 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

    This issue has the main problem of a rushed narrative conclusion to what could be the end of this brand. An example of the rushed storytelling is the montage of Cimmeria's head trying to both tempt and threaten Emma. Said montage causes something that could be epic to be idiotic instead, due to the temptation element being undermined by the threats. As for the art it looks okay, except the fight scenes keep having characters move super fast towards others and then stop right in front them. This makes the fighting look hesitant on the baddies' part when that shouldn't be the case. Finally the cliffhanger ending is pointless unless this brand is continued on in some manner.

   I do not recommend this final issue unless a person has read the previous three issues.

Imperium Issue 13 Review With Spoilers

Warning Of Spoilers!

  The first computer we see is just the opening bit in a salvo of anachronistic elements in this issue. I mean Livewire is not young enough to have been a kid at the point that obviously photoshopped computer was prominent. Another example is the smartphone model shown in the school setting flashback. While the phone example could have gone unnoticed by certain readers the computer problem makes it, and all the other artistic flaws, pointedly obvious. These flaws vary from the layout design reminding readers this is a sequential fictional narrative to the bolded "I" in the creative credits.

  As for the writing it is not at the level of Dysart's previous scripts. For example a teen in the school flashback suggests he and Livewire watch adult content while addressing the back of her head. This happens for no reason. Finally there are time jumps in the present day section and it negates a nature story flow.

  My verdict: Not recommended because I know …

Recommended Comics List Of 4 Comet and The Hangman Edition

1. The Comet #2 from 1983 has decent art and writing while dealing with the subject of child abuse. Though the real reason I am recommending it is the essay by Bill DuBay concerning child abuse and comics history.

2. The Official Audio Adaptation of Archer & Armstrong: The Michelangelo Code by Pendant Productions and Valiant Entertainment's production journal episodes are an interesting lead-in to the series. Recommended for Valiant and Audio Drama fans. Also recommend that audio engineering students check it out. It can currently be found at and iTunes podcast section.

3. Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat #3 (2016) is a great issue that moves the story forward while being an accessible jumping on point. It is also not a standard Marvel superhero story especially with how LBGTQA positive it is. There are a bunch of other great reasons to check this book out, but I will leave them be and just say this is extremely recommended.

4. Doing c…

Blue Asteroids Cowboy Bebop Episode 23 Opinion Piece

This episode is kind of confusing. I mean it seems to be an existential rant about existence, but there are a lot of inconsistencies in the story. Such as the senile old scientist knowing anything about the fictional Londes. How Ein was able to hack the virtual reality game. (For crying out loud how much data was implanted in Ein by that illegal lab?) How did Faye send the S.O.S. message to the Bebop when she was affected by the program? Why was Faye affected before the monitors even turned on? Finally how does a coma patient hack anything? I just don't get it!
