We're past the halfway point of August, and already some tantalizing new comics series have come out. Let's take a look at a few of them. As always, I hope to suggest things you might like, and steer you off things I didn't.
Keep reading? I read Legends of the Dark Knight until I got bored with it. I read Adventures of Superman until I got bored with it. So I'll read this until I do the same. I just find it unfortunate the first story isn't one I particularly appreciated (it's a two-parter, so it's hard to judge). It'll be followed by a story drawn by Cat Staggs whose art I don't like at all, so it may take me a while to declare the new Sensation a winner. For those who insist on print editions, the first three issues are supposedly out in stores today under the same cover.
Keep reading? Internet pal Michel Fiffe is doing art for the second issue, so just on that basis, I'd say yes, but my interest in Kirby concepts is well served by this series, which can only get more coherent and interesting through its first few months.
Keep reading? I hate to pan this series - I think it'll work for other readers, and even more myself in trade format - but as a serial, it has failed to get me to read a second issue.
Keep reading? No, sorry. I had hopes, but they were dashed.
Keep reading? Yes, and I'm also going to go and find myself a Hexed vol.1 collection somewhere.
So not my most positive of capsule reviews, but maybe we can find more winners in a couple weeks when August has run its course.
