Spaceman #2 (I have a dick-hole Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Dec 03, 2011 10:50 am

I’m really enjoying this book, and now that I’m used to the future argot Azzarello is using, I’m really getting drawn in. This issue continued to develop the story, but backwards rather than forwards, we see more of the Flashback to Orson on Mars, and also to the controversial discussion about his creation as a genetic monster. It’s fascinating stuff and Azz is reflecting current fears about genetic experimentation. The stuff in the present is mostly action stuff, but it was very well done, Eduardo Risso really is a fantastic artist, and the violence in this issue was brilliant to look at.

I'm curious about where this series is going to go from here. Orson has rescued Tara, but there's still seven issues left, so it can't be that simple. Just what the complication is going to be should prove to be interesting to find out.

The way they talk annoys me and I'm not really sure I know what the hell is going on. I like the art a lot, but that's not enough to keep me reading. Also, I don't know what I was expecting from this book, but this sure wasn't it.

Fair enough.

I kind of like the way they talk myself, vocabulary shifts over time, and to me, it adds to the sense that this is taking place in the future. I can understand how that wouldn't be the same for others though.

I get that, but future-speak always seems to annoy me. It's why I don't care much for books like Hulk: Future Imperfect, the 2099 line and stuff like that.
