Hwei Lim is an artist from Malaysia. You can find her on deviantArt, tumblr, and there is also a website. Her Boris and Lalage comics are adorable and gorgeous reads – the last installment, Drops in The Ocean, is absolutely worth checking out. She also works on the apparently never-ending webcomic Hero, which is also worth a look. Also, there be art, check it out! Read More
This week, we’ve got yet another event starting, but I’m actually getting it. One miniseries ends, while another hits the midpoint. More awesomeness from Mike Carey, and is that Peter Parker?! Meanwhile, Marvel has some more new titles for your consideration, except these might not be so new. Conventions are everywhere, and now it’s quantified. Plus more!
Inhumanity #1 - One event is over, long live the next event! This one is a bit more focused, minus the occasional crossover issue. It really serves to launch Fraction’s relaunch of the Inhumans, titled simply Inhuman. It also serves to create another X-Men-like franchise for Marvel that has nothing to do with the X-Men – so there’s that. Either way, Fraction has proven capable of interesting new takes on established franchises, and we’re also getting art from Olivier Coipel, which is always a treat. This is absolutely worth checking out, even if you’re completely burned out on universe changing events. Read More
Pretty Deadly #1 was more or less universally lauded for being a good looking comic, but less lauded was the actual plot. Some seemed to think it was confusing and tangled, perhaps even unfocused. After all, there are three narratives, and Kelly Sue DeConnick has as much as admitted that the title from conception to its current form took on a life of its own – so there’s perhaps a bit of chaos in that. Nonetheless, the end result was excellent, and I’ve written at length about it. Having now read the second issue as well, I think it’s fair to say that Pretty Deadly is a difficult story. One that does not lend itself to easy interpretation. Rather than giving the reader all of the answers, or guiding them to it, it hides them behind mythology, poetry, and stories within stories – and this is a good thing! Read More
It seems like every month, even every week, sees the launch of a new title from Image. This time it’s Black Science by Rick Remender and the incredibly talented artistic team of Matteo Scalera and Dean White. And it’s actually a mixed bag. Admittedly, it’s an astonishing visual trip, but the plot behind it all seems more content with spectacle than actual substance. The end result is good, but this could have been so much more.
