Time for yet another non-Aquaman sketch. This one, however, is Aquaman related. The great Tom Peyer drew this for me in my autograph book. Enjoy!
Before you believe anything you read on the internet today, check the date. I've already been zapped once this morning, and I'm feeling particularly gullible at the moment.
I spent my free time today fixing the treadmill then using it to train for the 3-Day, so I'm a little blogless at the moment. Maybe tomorrow.
Here's another set of reviews based on the recommendations I got from this post. These are in no particular order... just the order that they arrived from the library and I started to read them.
Sorry I won't make it to your party, but I hope you have a good day anyway!
Kaja's Diary indicates that "the main Girl Genius storyline will be moving to girlgeniusonline.com — starting April 18. All new material will be available for free reading, one page at a time, updating Monday, Wednesday and Friday."
Lions Tigers & Bears #2: Joey ends up in the Kingdom, where he's recruited to fight in an ongoing war against the beasties. I like the art, although at times it gets a little over cutesy. The pacing of the story is good, but Joey is still very difficult for me to identify with. But the cliff-hanger works, and shows that Joey isn't scared for no reason. A fun book, definitely aimed at the younger crowd.
Chickasaw Adventures #1: Being an avid comic book reader, I'm very aware of the conventions of comics, and I usually recognize ones that are done well. This one isn't. The story is great, the artwork is very nice, but it reads like a book by someone who hasn't written many comics. Still, the story is one I didn't know, and the history is evident throughout the book. This is going to be a good series, even if it could use some polish.
My new goal is to finish most of my March reviews before the first April books arrive. No promises about this week's books, but I'll try to read the last three weeks' worth of stuff... yes, including the latest Aquaman.
Y: The Last Man - One Small Step: Two more men survived, and Yorick is on his way to meet them. This one includes two stories, and starts with the astronauts. It ends with a traveling theater troupe doing a play about the last man, inspired by Ampersand's appearance. I liked the first arc, but the second one mostly left me cold, despite some nice guest artwork. Still no clues as to what killed the men, but that's got to be addressed pretty soon, I'm sure. It can only be drawn out until the group reaches California, at the minimum.
In the comments to one of my reviews post, Joe Rice asks why I gave a book that I considered "completely forgetable" 3 starfish. Good question. In fact, while I've been pretty consistent with my ratings so far, they've been all but useless to folks who are trying to figure out what I like and don't like, partially because I tend to not buy books that I don't like, and partially because I'm using 3 starfish as my "neutral" point. Hopefully this will make my future ratings a little more clear, both to my readers and to myself.
