I am not okay
Saga Volume 9 - Fiona Staples,Brian K. Vaughan

I am grieving. Comics shouldn't make you grieve.

 

 

And I can't even find out what's going to happen because Saga is on hiatus!

Halloween Bingo 2018 - Cryptozoologist
Oblivion Song - Robert Kirkman,Lorenzo De Felici

'Oblivion Song, Chapter 1' by Robert Kirkman and Lorenzo De Felici

 

I don't know why I chose the shortest possible book for my Bingo pre-read, but there you go.

 

'Oblivion Song' is a new comic series by Robert Kirkman ('Walking Dead') that puts us in Philadelphia ten years after an unexplained phenomena wiped out a huge portion of the city, replacing it with horrific monsters and alien vegetation. 300,000 people vanished with the land. The monsters were defeated and the plants died, leaving a barren wasteland that the government built a wall around as a precaution.

 

It was soon discovered that the 300,000 were not dead, they were somewhere else. A scientist, driven by the loss of his brother, figured out the frequency to go to that other place and endeavored to bring back as many people as he could find. The government supported him and his team, but after many years, have shut down the program. Nathan Cole refuses to give up on his brother, making solo expeditions to Oblivion, avoiding the deadly creatures and rescuing those he finds.

 

The art is vivid, and the story hooked me right in. This is a promising start to a great series.

 

Oblivion Song

 

Next: ?

 

 

While 'Oblivion Song' hasn't gotten into the biology of the creatures of the zone, Nathan Cole expresses compassion for them, even objecting to their being killed out of hand. The alien landscape and its native inhabitants is an essential part of the series.

Nancy Drew, Girl Detective #1: The Demon of River Heights by Sho Murase and Stefan Petrucha
Nancy Drew #1: The Demon of River Heights (Nancy Drew Graphic Novels: Girl Detective) - Sho Murase,Stefan Petrucha

 

My library had a bunch of Nancy Drew graphic novels and since I had already planned on reading a ND mystery for this square I decided to make it easier on myself and read the GN. 

 

I wished I had just read one of Carolyn Keene's originals instead.

 

The artwork was okay, although at times it was too dark to make out the characters or scenery. The storyline was less Nancy Drew (from what I remember reading ND in my younger years) and more Scooby-Doo gang. Also Nancy in this is a complete scatterbrain - how could she be a better detective than the police chief when she couldn't remember to put gas in her car SEVERAL times? None of the female characters come across with any good traits (George is an oversexed bimbo, Bess is nosy bitch, and Nancy's nemesis is a gold digging slut - OF COURSE). 

 

A crappy attempt at updating Nancy Drew for a new generation.

Power of the Dark Crystal v3
Jim Henson's The Power of the Dark Crystal Volume 3 - Phillip Kennedy Johnson,Nichole Matthews,Kelly Matthews,Simon Spurrier

What a great way to finish the series! I hate that it's over. The art was fantastic, and the plot was so perfect. I am so happy this script was finally put out into the world in some form.
