January comic books / cómics de enero

Written by Arion on Monday, February 04 2013 and posted in Reviews

In the past I had over 20 comics to talk about, but this time I only have a few. But what I lack in quantity I more than make up for in quality. First we have a couple of very interesting Image ongoings: Great Pacific and Clone, and also the beginning of a very promising miniseries: Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth. The fifth installments of Fashion Beast and Secret Service were quite good, but the crown’s jewel is, of course, the third trade paperback of Alan Moore’ Swamp Thing. I still haven’t finished reviewing December comics, will I have enough time to review all of this before I get my February package? I also received Tales From the Abyss # 1 and I decided to dedicate a little drawing (accompanied by my signature) for one of my best friends. 

CLONE #3

Will Dr. Luke Taylor's descent into the government's most secretive project shed light on his origins? Or is he just the next in line to fall victim to his evil 'brother?' In this country, not all clones are created equal…

En el pasado tenía más de 20 cómics de los que podía hablar; esta vez sólo hay unos pocos. Pero lo que falta en cantidad queda más que compensado en calidad. Primero tenemos un de interesantes series de Image: Great Pacific y Clone, y también el comienzo de una muy prometedora miniserie: Todd the Ugliest Kid on Earth. La quinta entrega de Fashion Beast y Secret Service estuvieron muy bien pero, la joya de la corona, por supuesto, es el tercer tomo de Swamp Thing de Alan Moore. Todavía no he terminado de reseñar los cómics de diciembre, ¿tendré tiempo de reseñar todo este antes de que llegue mi paquete de febrero? También Tales From the Abyss # 1 recibí y decidí dedicarle un dibujito (acompañado de mi firma) a uno de mis mejores amigos.


 

CLONE #3
¿El descenso del doctor Luke Taylor en el proyecto más secreto del gobierno podrá dar nuevas luces sobre sus orígenes?

About the Author - Arion


Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog -  http://artbyarion.blogspot.com – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
