Warren Ellis's Iron Man is in the current Previews in the format.


And they stopped doing 616 Spidey.

not that it really matters, I guess, cause Chris made his choice, but I just got an email from Radical saying that The Last Days of American Crime will ship next week.

this was some of the most fun I have had reading a comic in a while

the art was spot on for a what I expected a Disney book to be. Story wise, this book would not only be fun for a 6 year old, but also a parent of a 6 year old to read. Some nice homages to the X-men and Booster Gold. Of course the humor was simple and juvenile, its a kids book, and it read just like I think a cartoon of this would have been written if this had aired during the after-school years of Duck Tales and Darkwing Duck.

The amount of comic I got for 2.99 was outstanding, and I look forward to giving this book to my neighbor's kid and helping ot get him into reading, and comic books.

A book like this, with an easy to understand plot that continues to the next issue but is not dependent on a previous one is exactly what can "hook" children on to comics. For me it was Rocky And Bullwinke, and for my brother it was Ren & Stimpy

story - 8
art - 8
value - 9 (not weighed equally)

overall 8.2 (ish)

inspired choice 4thy

okay 4.99, still three times as much new content as GSWOML and it is square bound as well, making it a sturdier product and probably a better product, it may be prettier and with OML that is actually saying something.

Square binding can't make up for boring as fuck Rick Remender writing. I'm getting sleepy just thinking about reading it.

Not that anyone here would ever admit to caring in the first place. :lol:

But if you feel like writing the Hex review, do so.

Because obviously, the artwork is totally capable and dare I say, well paced and with a smooth flow. Writer gets 7/10. Translator 6/10.

The artwork is fantastically cartoony. People poohpooh on cartoony artwork in comics, but in a talking animal comic, this guy is like a Joe Madueria. They still look Disney, but it's nicely modernized without too much deviation. I will post some panels later to show the strengths. However, some details are lacking and we're left with quite a few of panels without a background. I also had to a double take since the lettering and the art didn't mesh too well.


Yeah, translations are a problem when they are literal translations. Best to literally translate, then slightly re-write for a smoother story.

And don't forget that along with the translation, the lettering has to be re-done, too. That's probably why it doesn't mesh.
