Hit-Girl # 5 - Mark Millar Romita Jr.

Hit-Girl # 5 - Mark Millar Romita Jr.

By Arion in Reviews on April 10, 2013

I cannot express how much fun I had reading the final chapter of Hit-Girl. I think anyone familiar with Millar’s works will know that violence is always an important component in the stories of this Irish writer. Well, surely, violence is putting it mildly in the case of Mindy, a sweet girl by day and an avenging executioner by night. When the mobsters are threatening the lives of Hit-Girl’s foster family, her reaction is more brutal than ever. The gang squad that visits her home is quickly dispatched, without her weapons, Mindy uses kitchen knives and even a sledgehammer to turn a guy’s head into a cesspool of blood and gray matter.  After that, she hunts down and exterminates many other mobsters, killing them in very creative and painful ways. Surely, John Romita Jr. must have enjoyed drawing all this mayhem, especially the decapitated bodies and the intestines and the huge trail of corpses that Hit-Girl leaves behind her. Meanwhile, Red Mist finally realizes that things are not as easy as they seem to be in the comics. He’s in Asia, training with the best martial artists, but he’s nowhere near to become as good as Batman. In fact, he’s getting ripped off by his masters, who charge him thousands of dollars while teaching him the same self-defense stuff he would learn in a public school. In the end, he decides to quit. It’s too hard to be as lethal as Batman, but it’s much easier to hire someone who already is a living weapon. In Kick-Ass volume 2 we already see Red Mist turned into the infamous Motherfucker. In this miniseries, we learn what happened to him and why he turned out to be such a peculiar nemesis.   In case you missed my previous reviews don’t forget to check these links: Hit-Girl # 1, Hit-Girl # 2, Hit-Girl # 3 & Hit-Girl # 4.  ______________________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________________ Es difícil expresar lo divertido que ha sido el último capítulo de Hit-Girl. Creo que cualquiera que esté familiarizado con la obra de Millar sabe que la violencia es un componente importante en las historias del escritor irlandés. Bueno, violencia es decir poco en el caso de Mindy, una dulce niña de día y una vengativa asesina de noche. Cuando los mafiosos están amenazando las vidas de la familia adoptiva de Hit-Girl, su reacción es más brutal que nunca. La pandilla de criminales que visitan su casa son despachados rápidamente, sin armas, Mindy usa cuchillos de cocina e incluso un martillo para convertir la cabeza de uno de los tipos en un charco de sangre y materia gris.  Después de eso, ella caza y extermina a muchos otros mafiosos, matándolos de las maneras más creativas y dolorosas. Seguramente, John Romita Jr. debe haber gozado dibujando todo este tumulto, en especial los cuerpos decapitados y los intestinos y el tremendo ratro de cadáveres que Hit-Girl deja a su paso. Mientras tanto, Red Mist por fin se da cuenta de que las cosas no son tan fáciles como parecen en los cómics. Él está en Asia, entrenando con los mejores maestros de artes marciales, pero no está ni cerca de ser alguien como Batman. De hecho, está siendo estafado por sus maestros, quienes le cobran miles de dólares y le enseñan la misma auto-defensa que podría aprender en una escuela pública. Al final, él decide renunciar. Es demasiado difícil ser tan letal como Batman, pero es mucho más fácil contratar a alguien que ya sea un arma viviente. En Kick-Ass volumen 2 vemos a Red Mist ya convertido en el infame Motherfucker. En esta miniserie, descubrimos qué le pasó para terminar como tan peculiar némesis.   Y no se olviden de revisar los demás links: Hit-Girl # 1, Hit-Girl # 2, Hit-Girl # 3 y Hit-Girl # 4 Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/04/hit-girl-5-mark-millar-romita-jr.html

The Day the Saucers Came - Neil Gaiman Paul Chadwick

The Day the Saucers Came - Neil Gaiman Paul Chadwick

By Arion in Reviews on April 9, 2013

amazing cover by Greg Ruth / asombrosa portada de Greg Ruth Can a good story be told in only 7 pages? Of course, and Neil Gaiman proves that in “The Day the Saucers Came”, a very poetic tale that plays with the reader’s expectations since the first page. What would happen if one day, suddenly, we were invaded by flying saucers? And what would happen if, on the same day, “the graves gave up their dead and the zombies pushed up through soft earth or erupted, shambling and dull eyed, un-stoppable”?  Gaiman plays with the archetypical fears of our postmodern mind… with the notions of the end of the world that we have seen in films or TV shows, but at the same time he embroils them with ancient legends and myths that are centuries old. Because on the same day that the saucers landed and the dead came back to life, the time for Ragnarok comes, the snake Jormungand, the wolf Fenrir, Odin and Thor, and all of the Nordic pantheon, have arrived. the classic alien invasion? / ¿la clásica invasión alienígena? And on that same day, the magical creatures that inhabit Elvenhome return to our reality. This surely has been a recurring theme for Gaiman, the idea of Faerie coexisting with our world, forever in our reach and yet always a few steps beyond our mortal ken. From “The Books of Magic”, to “Sandman” or “Stardust”, Gaiman has brilliantly explored fantasy as a realm and as a literary genre.  Every page shows the delightful art of Paul Chadwick, one of the best American authors of the past decades, who certainly does a wonderful job illustrating Gaiman’s script. Chadwick contributes to the story with sentiment, powerful imagery and a lot of impressive scenes.   At the end, we see the concept of the deinos, a term used by the Greeks to describe the human nature. Deinos is either the most terrible thing you can imagine or the most majestic and impressive thing you can conceive. Because that is the human nature, to be the worst and the best, the most despicable and the most admirable, and on the last page, Gaiman ties it all up and makes us realize, that no matter how many aliens, zombies, gods or faries are out there, the thing we fear and love the most is still the other, the human that may or may not fear / love us back. another kind of living dead / otra clase de muertos vivientes “The Day the Saucers Came” was printed on the pages of Dark Horse Presents, and surely after reading something from such a fantastic creative team –Gaiman and Chadwick– I must say I felt that the other stories in this anthology were a bit di-sappointing. I’d like to point out, however, that I really enjoyed “Arcade Boy” (by Denis Medri), because of its un-complicated approach to the world of computer games and, most especially, to the intimate sphere of a teenaged boy. Other stories that showed potential were “Beneath the Ice” (by Simon Roy & Jason Wordie) and “Finder” (by Carla Speed McNeil). However, my second favorite after “The Day the Saucers Came” is “Villain House: the Squid and Pachyderm” by Shannon Wheeler, this is an example of narrative economy and great storytelling; in just a handful of pages the reader is transported to another world. Fantastic stuff!    _________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________ The Nordic pantheon / el panteón nórdico ¿Puede una buena historia contarse en sólo 7 páginas? Claro que sí, y Neil Gaiman lo demuestra en "El día que llegaron los platillos voladores", un relato muy poético que juega con las expectativas del lector desde la primera página. ¿Qué pasaría si, repenti-namente, fuéramos invadidos por platillos voladores? ¿Qué sucedería si, en el mismo día, "las tumbas arrojaron a sus muertos y los zombis empujaron la suave tierra, como en una erupción, temblando y con ojos vacíos, imparables"? Gaiman juega con los miedos arquetípicos de nuestra mente postmoderna... con las nociones del fin del mundo que hemos visto en películas o series de televisión, pero al mismo tiempo los enmaraña con leyendas y mitos antiguos, de hace siglos. Porque en el mismo día en que los platillos aterrizan y los muertos regresan a la vida, llega la hora del Ragnarok, aparecen la serpiente Jormungand, el lobo Fenrir, Odín y Thor, y todo el panteón nórdico.  Y en el mismo día, los seres mágicos que habitan Elvenhome retornan a la realidad. Este sin duda ha sido un tema recurrente para Gaiman, la idea del mundo de las hadas coexistiendo con el nuestro, eternamente a nuestro alcance y aún así siempre un poco más allá de nuestra mirada. Desde "Los libros de la magia" hasta “Sandman” o “Stardust”, Gaiman ha explorado de modo brillante la fantasía como un reino y como un género literario. Cada página muestra el delicioso arte de Paul Chadwick, uno de los mejores autores de Estados Unidos en las últimas décadas, que ciertamente hace un maravilloso trabajo ilustrando el guión de Gaiman. Chadwick contribuye a la historia con sentimiento, imágenes poderosas y escenas impresionantes.   the extraordinary art of Paul Chadwick /el extraordinario arte de Paul Chadwick Al final, vemos el concepto de deinos, un término usado por los griegos para describir la naturaleza humana. Deinos es lo más terrible que puedan imaginar o lo más majestuoso que puedan concebir. Porque esa es la naturaleza humana, ser lo peor y lo mejor, lo más despreciable y lo más admirable, y en la última página, Gaiman ata los cabos sueltos y hace que nos demos cuenta de que no importa cuántos aliens, zombis, dioses o hadas hay allí afuera, lo que más tememos y amamos es el otro, el humano que puede o no temernos / amarnos.  "El día que llegaron los platillos voladores" se imprimió en las páginas de Dark Horse Presents, y sin duda después de leer algo de tan fantástico equipo creativo –Gaiman y Chadwick– debo decir que las otras historias de esta antología me parecieron decepcionantes. Me gustaría señalar, sin embargo, que realmente disfruté “Arcade Boy” (de Denis Medri), gracias a su enfoque sencillo del mundo de los juegos de computadora y, sobre todo, de la esfera íntima de un adolescente. Otras historias que mostraron potencial fueron  “Bajo el hielo” (de Simon Roy y Jason Wordie) y “Finder” (de Carla Speed McNeil). Sin embargo, mi segunda favorita después de "El día que llegaron los platillos voladores" es "Casa de villanos: el calamar y el paquidermo" de Shannon Wheeler, es un ejemplo de economía narrativa y gran secuencialidad; en sólo un puñado de páginas el lector es transportado a otro mundo. ¡Fantástico!   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/04/the-day-saucers-came-neil-gaiman-paul.html
