Happy # 3 - Grant Morrison Darick Robertson

Happy # 3 - Grant Morrison Darick Robertson

By Arion in Reviews on January 22, 2013

Does nostalgia betray our memories, coloring our past in warmer and happier tones? Perhaps sometimes that is the case, but one thing remains true when it comes down to Nick Sax: his terrible current situation would make his past, any past, seem like paradise in comparison. In the penultimate chapter of Grant Morrison’s new creator-owned series, Nick tries to get out of the city. Happy, the blue winged horse that he initially considered a hallucination tries to convince him to save the life of a child named Hailey.  It’s interesting to observe that in the past, Nick had a good life and a loving wife. But after witnessing some of the most horrifying crimes in the city, his only way to deal with all that was by drinking. Then things got worse and worse, and finally his wife left him and he lost his badge. With nothing to lose, he starts working for a criminal group. Nick's past / el pasado de Nick Happy doesn’t accept that misery and decay is the norm, but after taking a quick look at how people act and talk during the Christmas season, he convinces himself that Nick is right: the world is a hopeless, shitty place. It seems, then, that without at least a modicum of happiness Happy can no longer manifest himself in our reality, and so he vanishes not without finally explaining to Nick what is his connection with Hailey. In the final scenes, we see the depraved Santa Claus about to ‘open his gifts’, a group of kids tied up as Christmas presents. One of them is Hailey. She’s about to be raped by a Santa Claus who plans to act like the protagonist of a very perverted pornographic movie. Let’s remember that the term pornography originates from two Greek words, porne, which means harlot, and graphein, which means to write. In a way, the viewer is inscribed -written into the sexual situation he’s seeing- into the movie. The audience imagines how it would feel to be the man who’s penetrating the woman, but what does Hailey imagine in this situation? She fantasizes, of course, about freedom, about a fictitious creature that will magically save her: Happy. Santa Claus will reduce her to something not human; merely a body part, a body opening or an orifice, and she must hold on to her fantasies in order to remain sane. The white-bearded pederast derives sexual gratification from the degradation of children. Certainly, this third issue ends with a strong cliffhanger. ______________________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________________ Nick killing again / Nick matando nuevamente ¿La nostalgia traiciona nuestras memorias, coloreando el pasado con tonos más cálidos y felices? Tal vez así sea en algunos casos, pero algo es cierto cuando se trata de Nick Sax: su terrible situación actual haría que su pasado, cualquier pasado, sea como un paraíso en comparación. En el penúltimo capítulo de la nueva miniserie de Grant Morrison, Nick intenta escapar de la ciudad. Happy, el caballo alado azul que él inicialmente consideraba como una alucinación intenta convencerlo para que le salve la vida a una niña llamada Hailey.  Es interesante observar que en el pasado, Nick había tenido una buena vida y una esposa amorosa. Pero luego de ser testigo de algunos de los crímenes más horrendos de la ciudad, su única manera de lidiar con todo ello fue a través de la bebida. Luego las cosas empeoran y finalmente su esposa lo abandona y él pierde su placa. Sin nada que perder, empieza a trabajar para un grupo criminal. A very depraved Santa Claus / Un Papa Noel muy depravado Happy no acepta que la miseria y la corrupción sean la norma, pero luego de ver cómo la gente actúa y habla durante la temporada navideña, descubre que Nick tiene razón: el mundo es un lugar de mierda, sin esperanza. Parece, entonces, que sin nada de felicidad Happy no puede manifestarse en nuestra realidad, así que se desvanece no sin antes explicarle a Nick cuál es conexión con Hailey. En las escenas finales, vemos al depravado Papa Noel a punto de 'abrir sus regalos', un grupo de niños amarrados como obsequios navideños. Entre ellos está Hailey. Ella está a punto de ser violado por un Papa Noel que planea actuar como el depravado protagonista de una película pornográfica. Recordemos que el término pornografía se origina de dos palabras griegas, porne, que significa prostíbulo, y graphein, que significa escribir. En cierto modo, el espectador se inscribe -está inscrito en la situación sexual que observa- en la película. La audiencia se imagina cómo se sentiría al ser el hombre que penetra a la mujer, pero ¿qué es lo que Hailey se imagina en esta situación? Ella fantasea, por supuesto, con la libertad, con una criatura ficticia que la salvará mágicamente: Happy. Papa Noel la reducirá a algo inhumano; apenas una parte del cuerpo, una abertura corporal o un orificio, y ella debe aferrarse a sus fantasías para poder conservar la cordura. El pederasta de barba blanca deriva su gratificación sexual de la degradación de los niños. Ciertamente, este tercer número concluye con fuerza.   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/01/happy-3-grant-morrison-darick-robertson.html

Review: Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 3

Review: Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 3

By Rui Esteves in Reviews on January 22, 2013

Cover The Marvel Summer event of 2012 comes to Wolverine and the X-Men. The mutants at the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning have to choose what side they want to fight for. Wolverine tries to keep the normality of the School and the neutrality of his students, but something are just impossible to control. Students strand up against teachers and friends will fight friends. Will the school ever be the same?! How is it? Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 3 is a very disappointing book. If you read any of my previous Wolverine and the X-Men reviews you know I've loved the book from the start and have praised it a lot. If you haven't read them, this a good opportunity, check them in these links: Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 1 Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 2 Wolverine and the X-Men Alpha & Omega Sadly when judge this book by its own merits this book fails miserably. However Jason Aaron, Chris Bachalo and Nick Bradshaw aren't to blame. They do their respective jobs as well as its possible. The problem is with Marvel editorial. This book was dragged into the crossover event du jour and as a consequence it lost even the slightest shred of story telling ability  Its a disjointed mess of chapters, where stuff happens off pages (probably in other books) that radically change the dynamic between the characters and, unless you read the main event in order or you're Sherlock Holmes, you're going to be dazed and confused (in the bad way). In order to be fair to the authors lets break this down in more manageable chunks. The Good Chris Bachalo's and Nick Bradshaw's art is amazing as it was in the previous volumes. Everything is vibrant and dynamic. The fights are really cool to watch. There are 3 characters they draw in a spectacular way: Ice Man, The Beast and Rachel Summers. It is ON! The latter is one of my favorite X-characters that as a bit of a spotlight in this volume. Rachel has to confront her past as a hunter of mutants when she is asked to do just the same. Jason Aaron does a good job fleshing out her inner conflict about using her mutant hunting ability to track down Hope. Orders are orders The last chapter is really good. Its about Warbird's origin. Ava'dara Naganandini, soldier of the Shi'ar Imperium, Royal Warbird, Deathbringer class is a much more complex character than she's had the chance to show. Once again Jason Aaron creates a very interesting background for a lesser character that not only fleshes her out as it opens a few door to future plots. I loved her sins, her depravity (its not what you're thinking) and her punishment  Saying more would spoil the best story in this collection. The Bad: Wolverine and the X-Men Volume 3 is, for the lack of a better word, a clusterfuck. Basically from chapter to chapter you get lost and confused. Lots of stuff happens in between chapters that you have no way to know, unless you're reading all the AVX books. Even if you were reading all the books that compose the AVX event, you'd have to read a chapter at a time from everyone of them. And it was up to you to figure out the correct reading order. The Ugly: Either Marvel had an enormous lack of vision or a disturbing lack of consideration for their readership. Publishing such a disjointed and disconnected book is a huge mistake. I want to think this was a lack of vision and a bit of incompetence but it feels more like they did it this way to "force" the reader to buy other books he doesn't want to in order to understand whats going on. Next time, please look how Dark Horse did it with Vector or how DC Comics did with Blackest Night. In Vector Dark Horse collect all the issues, in the proper reading order, in two easy to read volumes. DC opted for a different route. The involved tie in books had coherent narratives that contributed to the main event. When DC collected them, it read like a regular story arc that was readable and understandable on their own. Hi, I'm here to hijack  the story. Verdict? Unless you're following the Avengers Vs X-men event, don't bother with this one. In fact stay away! This is a mess.
