Good news, everyone! The Gamer Girl & Vixen graphic novel is here! Almost! my partner, the great and glorious Kristi McDowell, picked up the comics at the shipping depot on Friday, and she said they look amazing! I’ll be heading down to her place soon to start packaging them and shipping them out to our Kickstarter backers. If you’d like to order your own copy, stay tuned to this blog for details!
Meanwhile, regular comic book companies keep putting out books. Unfortunately, I’m kinda busy at my day job his week, so I had to trim some of my usual reviews, like Hulk. Fortunately, there were still some goodies! The final issue of Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat is Comic Book of the Week because it went out like we all hoped it would: adorably.
If only that were true for the rest of us
Double meanwhile, after only two issues, I’ve already decided to drop both Weapon X and X-Men Gold. The former is fine, I just don’t care about it. But I am finding X-Men Gold to be actively bad. There’s no cohesion in the comic. Events and scenes aren’t held together by any real foundation, and seem to exist solely to make for ‘kewl’ moments. Plot points are nonsensical and lacking in logic. And the art, of course, is terrible.
These are probably similar reasons to why I’ve stopped watching all of Marc Guggenheim’s DC Comics TV shows on The CW. Yes, even Flash…
Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #955, The Flash #21, Infamous Iron Man #7, Patsy Walker a.k.a. Hellcat #17 and X-Men Blue #2.
