Issue 1 – 8/15/2012

Posted on 15 August 2012 by VinnieAve

Sadly, the column will end with nothing impressive. Issue 1 is not what I had hoped it would be and thus I will either be doing Vin’s Picks or a graphic novel/trade review each week. This week was nice and light honestly.

Before Watchmen: Rorschach – I had given up on these a while ago and this book reminded why. While these aren’t bad book, there are other books doing the same thing but better. This story is set in the dirty 1970s of New York, which is a neat setting. The problem with this book for me is the art, which is well done but I find that the realistic style isn’t the best for storytelling. Also, this is Rorschach, there could have been some really inventive art-styles going on but alas, Before Watchmen is really playing it too safe. Continue Reading

Vin’s Picks Week of 7/16/2012

Posted on 19 July 2012 by VinnieAve

This week is pretty scant but I am not sorry about that if you want more books mentioned the best bet might be to suggest me some books so I can reject them (or maybe pick them)

Concrete: Three Uneasy Pieces – I haven’t read anything else that is part of Paul Chadwick’s Concrete. This is another week when there is a collection, which means I will probably pick them up since I like the idea of these but this week it wasn’t more or less terrible. Admittedly there was only one story that I enjoyed which was the end story about Concrete using hugs to capture criminals. If this is way out of character this please tell me so I can know to hate it.

DC Universe Presents #11: Savage – This is not a strong book and the art is terrible as has been seen with the entirety of Savage but the story has been fun all along. Since this is the final part of the story you know that the action will be there. I thought the scripting of the art was something impressive though.

Saga Chapter 5 – I’ve often said that the biggest problem with A Game of Thrones Season 2 (and A Clash of Kings) is that there are too many character and it weakens the story overall. Saga is ripe to fall into this trap but it doesn’t. We’re following four different sets of characters that are pretty far apart but the story at no point. As always this book tops my list and has such great and unique character designs and wonderful story-telling that this is my favorite book getting published now. I think we’ve starting to move towards a major point.
