I feel trapped as a comic reader. I feel confused by Morrisons out there ideas, and find his stories and dialogue poor. But i'm not trapped in the past like Chappy who likes his stories and art only done in a certain way.

I need to find a group to belong to :(

And even though I hate you with an uncontrollable passion, that offer goes for you too, Chap.


Bah if I need to read the script along with the comic to figure it out then it must be CRAP!

truer words were never spoke. comics provide you a verbal AND a visual means of obtaining any information you need. if there's something the art can't show, the dialogue should be able to convey it. if there's something the writer wants you to see but doesn't want to waste exposition on it, the art should be able to convey it. if there's something in there that neither can convey properly without having to be further explained in liner notes, etc., then that's piss-poor storytelling in both aspects.


fooey, i say.

I like the Vampire stories, Broken City, Long Halloween\Dark Victory Arkham Asylum, City of Crime and I actually quite enjoyed Under the Hood until I found out the decidedly un-Gotham-y reason Jason was back.

Yeah, the trilogy. They put it out all as one thinger during Countdown, cos VampBatman appeared in Arena. The art's the main sell, but the story's pretty entertaining if you like it gothic.

Well, do you understand Tarot cards and the meanings behind them? If so, then you don't need the script. If you didn't (like me), then the script would probably help you.
