I'm really uncertain how I feel about this book. On one hand the art is phenomenal - Dave McKean has created a beautiful book. Every page is full of color, emotion, and a softness which blankets even the grimmest details. Even the layout of the panels is excellent. It truly is stunning. On the other...

I figure it's about time to crawl out of my hole and do a little posting. As I mentioned last time, I am behind in my reviewing responsibilities (heh, "responsibilities"), so here is an update on what I've read recently. There's actually more, but the other things I've been reading are non-fiction h...

It took me a while to warm up to the story. The trouble I have with a lot of comic arcs is where to begin- there's SO much backstory and revamps and canon-pasting and such that happens over those decade-long SuperBatGreenSilverSwampSpiderWonderManWomanBoyGirlLanternSurferThing etc stories. I like ...

Do NOT read the introduction before the story, it contains spoilers! Stupid introduction writers, why do they keep doing that?
