I don’t even know how I ended up with some of these. Ah well, onward!
I think this is my favourite issue so far. I’m not sure it’s because all the pieces of the story are starting to come together or just because the death at the end was so much fun, but something about this issue was wonderful. Maybe it was the feeling of having enough of the story that the death at the end felt like it meant something at last. I don’t know, but it was a great issue.
Hawks of Outremer #1
It seems sort of like if the Punisher were set in a fantasy. That might be because he has a skull on his chest on the cover, but it’s certainly one of those bloody fantasy titles. I don’t think I’m quite ready to dive back into the hard fantasy stuff yet, though, if that didn’t catch me. Or maybe it’s just the wrong title.
Tom Strong and the Robots of Doom #1
So much of this just bothered me. Like his mother looking like his wife. And how she just strips at the end of it. And how the golden man disappears and I’m supposed to feel something despite not knowing who he is. It’s like I’m missing a lot of continuity. Though the cover feels so nice…
Young Allies #1
Rikki AND Gravity! Two characters I thought I’d never see again! And, you know, a bunch of other characters I’ve read in passing or never at all. I enjoyed it, though it might just be the thrill of seeing the first two in a series again.
