Graphic Novel Review – The Runaways

November 14, 2008 Leave a comment

At first I was not too attracted toward this story. It had too much of a manga feel to it, and I don’t care for that particular style. The only thing that kept my interest was the writer, whom I have reviewed a few times. Bryan K. Vaughan, together with Adrian Alphona, got this story of Runaways going for Marvel Comics. Read more…

Graphic Novel Review – The Watchmen

October 3, 2008 Leave a comment

The graphic novel world has a variety of subjects for one to read.  Most of them are easy reads that combine a quick story with some nice graphics.  Sometimes what you get to read is so complex yet well structured that it hits you like a ton of bricks.  That was my experience with The Watchmen.  Yes, I know I’m twenty years late, and there are probably a ton of reviews about how marvelous it is.  Still, as a new person entering the graphic novel world, I feel compelled to share what I’ve absorbed from this work.

Graphic Novel Review – The Hood

September 12, 2008 Leave a comment

After having read a few dozen graphic novels this past year, I’ve started to track previous works of the writers I’ve liked so far.  That’s how I came across The Hood.  Written by the creator of Y: The Last Man, Bryan K. Vaughan, this story brings us the perspective of a villain and his inner demons and who he really is; yet that might be more rethorical than anything else. Read more…

Graphic Novel Review – Pride Of Baghdad

As I’ve explained before, I don’t consider myself a conoceur of graphic novels, being that I’ve only been reading them on a regular basis for less than a year.  Yet, I have been lucky enough to get a good vibe from briefs and summaries of the stories and so far, most of my selections have been good ones.  The latest one I’ve read, was one created by Bryan K Vaughan, the guy that made Y: The Last Man.  That was good enough for me to give it a try.  So I bought Pride of Baghdad, without having a clue what it was about.  Read more…

Graphic Novel Review – Various Zombie Stories

As you probably have noticed, most of my reviews for graphic novels are for stories that involved zombies.  I will admit its a guilty pleasure of mine.  Among the stories I’ve reviewed are Dead Eyes Open, The Damned and most importantly my all time favorite, The Walking Dead.  Aside from those stories, there are many others that I’ve read during the past few weeks that although interesting, I did not feel I should dedicates a whole review for each one.

Graphic Novel Review – The Damned: Vol.1 Three Days Dead

I guess I just keep finding twist to the typical zombie story.  This book has a few twists of its own.  The Damned takes us thru the life death of Eddie, a tough guy, working for the mafia during the Prohibition Era.  Back when double crossing somebody or just looking like you might pull a double cross on someone with power meant only one thing…you sleep with the fishes, or the cement or the worms, ya follow?

What started out as a purchase for another zombie book, turned out to be something quite different from my expectations.  Dead Eyes Open, is a complex book that brings the reader an opportunity to see society thru the eyes of the most unusual of its members…the dead. Read more…
