I have finished season 1 of Sabrina. It was pretty good and a decent ending as well. The aunties are both great as are all the Spellmans. If they keep the firm horror theme going forwards then i'll be very pleased. It was far more horror than I expected it to be.

4.3/5

I caught Slaughterhouse Rulez last night, it was ok but not great. Entertaining enough with some great moments, but too much generic stuff as well. Skip it at the cinema and wait for Netflix or whatever. 3/5

Also finished reading Daryl Falrymple's "It Will All Hurt", which was great, like a dark surreal fairytale. I really like his art style so the whole thing was great for me, even if it has a bit of a confusing in medias res opening. A similar, but darker, tone to Pop Gun War. I'm really happy to see that Dalrymple has more stuff coming out these days, his storytelling is distinctive and his art is glorious.

Sort of wish I'd read this post earlier. I caught a 1.30pm showing of slaughterhouse and had the same reaction. It's not shit, but it was something I could easily have watched whilst doing something constructive at home.

They definitely improved it over the comic version since it had an ending :lol:

It was good, but after watching it for a few episodes I realized that it didn't have any nudity or shit I would have expected from a Netflix show. I don't have any complaints about that, more of that I didn't realize I had internalized so much of such content in watching mostly Netlix an premium channel shows that the lack of nudity and a lot of cursing is more surprising than the inclusion of such. Looking forward to season 2 and hope we get some witch hunters which I suspect the bookstore guy is

This week I read:

Image
Immortal Hulk #8, 4/5
Not quite as good as previous issues, but still a very enjoyable issue. Consistently entertaining and working the horror vibe very well.

Image
Justice League #11 4.4/5
This is the most fun I've had reading the Justice League since Morrison & Porter in the late 90s. Snyder gives Aquaman and his ancestors a great backstory.

Image
Deathstroke #37 4.4/5
This arc feels as if Priest is finally bringing his A-game. Interesting ideas, while still leaving the reader unsure of what is going on. Good stuff.

Image
The Green Lantern #1 4.5/5
This is best single issue of Morrison DC book since he finished Batman and Robin. I was unimpressed with nu52 Superman, Batman Inc and Multiversity, but this is return to form. I don't even like Hal Jordan, but I'm fully on for the ride. Liam Sharpe's art is really good, much better than the preview art shows. There is slight Judge Dredd vibe going on here as well.

Image
The Dreaming #3 4.6/5
This is currently the best book DC are putting out. Spurrier perfectly captures the essence of the Sandman universe. Judge Gallows is pretty cool, but so is everyone else.

Image
Transformers Lost Light #25, 5/5
The perfect end to one of the greatest comic runs of all time. You can all be relieved I'll stop going on about it now :wink:

A very strong week from DC, but James Roberts had planned the ending to his Transformers run many years in advance, and it was brilliant.

As you all know, I'm the first to defend Image against complaints of lateness and cancellations etc..
but even I can't find anything to say in defence of Stephenson himself leaving several books unfinished, even after they had been solicited up to the final issue and even the collections.

He's the one guy who shouldn't allow himself to do this.

Man, that GL cover art is fugly, and the person who drew it has the square root of fuck all understanding of human musculature and anatomy (which is compounded, as usual, by the idea of a skintight uniform which shows off every crease and fold of muscle, yet remains mysteriously Ken-doll-smooth in the crotch area).

Yeah, the art in that book is getting some good mentions, but just based on the cover I'm not seeing it. Maybe the interiors are better.

So that cover leaves quite a lot to be desired. Also the preview art looked less than stellar as well. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by the interior art. I was expecting some sort of DC house style based on 90s Image comics. Instead you've got this very interesting modern take on the silver age.

Also if we are talking about covers then Jae Lee's covers for The Dreaming are absolutely gorgeous.
