Some three months temporarily out of the comic book racket means lots of new series and mini-series came out for me to sample and review. We looked at the more mainstream fare last week. This week, we look at DC's once-great mature readers label Vertigo, and Dark Horse, the company everyone is looking at post-Star Wars license to see what will happen to it. There's a kind of theme there. A couple of series from other companies, why not? Some of these are already on their third or even fourth issues - I'm so late! So... spend a buck or save a buck? Let's see what's what.
Keep reading? I'd like to read the story cover to cover, but as a monthly, it may not move quickly enough.
Keep reading? Looks like I'm intrigued enough to keep going.
Keep reading? The violence reminds me of the new Lobo and Deathstroke series. Endless and pointless. So no.
Keep reading? I'm definitely on board.
Keep reading? Yes. The deconstructionist approach doesn't feel like the umpteenth retread of Watchmen - a feat unto itself -and I want to read more about this world and its characters.
Keep reading? No, sorry. It started off quite well, but lost me mid-stream.
Keep reading? No. Super Dinosaur may be on hiatus, but Terrible Lizard isn't a solid replacement, even temporarily.
You know who came out with tons of new titles in the past 3 months? Image Comics. Man, I may have to write 2 articles next week just to cover the ones that interest me.
