Amoebas's review last week.was awesome. What's your problem Punchy? We need Fourthly back here to put you in your place with dozens of obnoxious drama threads.
I was happy to see my shop got this book in nice and early. I drank some brandy and enjoyed a brisk read full of bronze slave girls, Mint the Merciless, and some cheesy but entertaining pulp action. For the most part I've gone out of my way to avoid Alex Ross and his strange golden age obsession, and this book doesn't make me regret that, but I'm also not.sorry I gave it a try. In small doses, it can be fun. As I said, it was a short read, but action packed, taking full advantage of the comics medium's ability to tell a story without walking the reader through every detail. The art was well done but annoyed me. It displayed skill and craft but was ugly. The coloring played a large part in that. This comic shoild be bright, and the pallette isn't necessarily muted, but the whole thing felt muddy. Or maybe that was the brandy. I'd like to donate this review to Ameobas so Punchy will stop persecuting him.
7/10 a solid effort
