America’s Got Powers # 5 - Jonathan Ross Bryan Hitch

America’s Got Powers # 5 - Jonathan Ross Bryan Hitch

By Arion in Reviews on April 12, 2013

After the fight between the young rebels and the superhero team sanctioned by the government, Tommy Watts is taken prisoner. Now, at the heart of the facility in which the comatose bodies of dozens of super-powered teenagers lie in perpetual slumber, he must take a decision. Will he give in to pressure and accept the orders of the authorities or will he oppose them? At the same time, the army is dealing with two gigantic teenagers. Trained to kill, the soldiers don’t believe in taking prisoners. There are a couple of double page spreads that have impressed me deeply. One of them begins with a panoramic view of the battlefield followed by a huge panel in which we see the gigantic couple wreaking havoc amongst the soldiers. This is not only a magnificent exercise of perspective but also a great example of composition. We see the two teenagers from below, as if we were normal humans admiring the impossible dimensions of these giants, and we also get to admire the aggressiveness of the boy, who kicks several cars, the flying bodies and the movement are every bit as prodigious as Bryan Hitch’s pages in The Ultimates (a book which also featured gigantic men). giant teenagers / adolescentes gigantes When the missiles hit their target, we see the boy falling down unto the bridge, effectively destroying everything around him and creating a wave shock that throws many vehicles into the water. There is such a sense of density and weight in this panel, I can’t remember the last time I saw a gigantic creature portrayed in such an expressive manner. The dead of the girl, only panels after, is also deeply evocative and equally powerful.  Another of my favorite pages is the one that shows the aftermath of Tommy’s reaction. Rebelling against his captors, he releases a vast amount of energy. The force of his attacks renders him unconscious, but the energy liberated awakens his brother and many of the other young men and women that had been imprisoned for months. Jonathan Ross and Bryan Hitch are a great creative team, and Hitch’s pencils are enhanced by the inks of Paul Neary and Jason Paz, as well as the coloring of Paul Mounts.  _______________________________________________________________ _______________________________________________________________ a great doble page spread / una gran página doble Después de la pelea entre los jóvenes rebeldes y el equipo de súper-héroes sancionado por el gobierno, Tommy Watts es tomado prisionero. Ahora, en el corazón del cuartel en el que los cuerpos comatosos de adolescentes súper poderosos yacen en perpetua hibernación, él debe tomar una decisión. ¿Cederá a la presión y aceptará las órdenes de las autoridades o se opondrá a ellas?  Tommy Watts Al mismo tiempo, el ejército debe lidiar con dos gigantescos adolescentes. Entrenados para matar, los soldados no consideran tomarlos como prisioneros. Hay un par de páginas dobles que me han impresionado profunda-mente. Una de ellas empieza con una vista panorámica del campo de batalla seguida por un inmenso panel en el que vemos a la pareja de gigantes causando conmoción entre los soldados. Este no sólo es un magnífico ejercicio de perspectiva sino también un gran ejemplo de composición. Vemos a los jovencitos desde abajo, como si fuéramos humanos ordinarios admirando las dimensiones imposibles de estos gigantes, y también notamos la agresividad del muchacho, que patea varios autos, los cuerpos que salen volando y el movimiento, casi tan prodigioso como las páginas de Bryan Hitch para “The Ultimates”(un título en donde también había gigantes).  Cuando los misiles dan en el blanco, vemos al chico cayendo sobre un puente, destruyendo todo alrededor y causando una onda expansiva que lanza muchos vehículos al agua. Hay un fuerte sentido de densidad y peso en esta viñeta, no recuerdo la última vez que vi a un gigante dibujado de manera tan expresiva. La muerte de la chica, pocas viñetas después, es muy evocadora, con igual poder.  Otra de mis páginas predilectas es la que muestra las consecuencias de la reacción de Tommy. Al rebelarse contra sus captores, libera una vasta cantidad de energía. La fuerza de su ataque lo deja inconsciente, pero la energía soltada despierta a su hermano y a muchos de los jóvenes que habían estado prisioneros por meses. Jonathan Ross y Bryan Hitch son un gran equipo creativo, y los lápices de Hitch son mejorados por las tintas de Paul Neary y Jason Paz, así como por el coloreado de Paul Mounts.   Originally Published at http://artbyarion.blogspot.com/2013/04/americas-got-powers-5-jonathan-ross.html

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
