Beau Smith/IDW 24 Cold Warriors

March 12, 2008

On saturday I picked up the 24: Cold warrior One shot. This one shot was paced exactly right, if it was the series I’d say it would have taken three nights to get through. Beau’s writing made you feel that Jack was actually there and poor Chloe hopelessly over her head. The only criticism I had with the Book was and it is a frequent criticism of IDW, The art didn’t live up to the script. That is not to say that the artist was poor, but there are better efforts that would have made Jack and Chloe leap from the pages.

In summary It was a good one shot and if you enjoy 24 or Beaus work please pick this up

Marvel- My two cents worth

February 28, 2008

The Following item is only my opinion:

As a comic collector who started with Captain America it was inevitable that when I was older (and had more disposable income) that I would return to the scene of so many good memory’s. But like any drug the first few hits while good slowly become less rush and more hassle. I looked at my titles and slowly through lazy writing or bad editorial decisions pulled title after title. First there was the Civil War/Ultimates lazy writing from Mark Millar (if you check the endings for both titles they are very similar) then there was the disaster that was the editorial decision to allow Steve Rodgers to get killed (yes we know he’s gonna be back, but come on Punisher in a gimp suit and then Bucky as Captain) and then one of Marvels best titles Ultimates gets destroyed through poor art and poor writing.

I have the privilege of corresponding with a few people that I truly class as Genius. Beau Smith a legend in comic books, who would rather walk from a job than take a lame story. Jimmy Palmotti who is a truly talented artist and a genuine nice guy. Geoff Johns another amazing writer and last but by no means least Barry Kitsons who’s artwork is simply sublime.

 I also read one heck of a lot and when I wince when I am reading a comic then I know that’s a bad sign. I have very few marvel titles left and I hope to god that for whatever reason Marvel doesn’t ruin those also.

But as i said this is only my opinion and I am sure there are fans out there who love everything that Mark Millar comes out with, That can not see anything wrong with Mr Loeb’s run on Ultimates. And for the record this is not artist/writer bashing. There are still titles I will be picking up that Mr Millar is involved on, And I still say that Hush is one of Mr Loebs best works.
