Hell-Fire: "A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" by James Joyce
A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man - James Joyce


(Original Review, 1981-02-16)



"April 27. Old father, old artificer, stand me now and ever in good stead."


How much I love/hate Joyce when I read about him...how could he have denied his mother on her deathbed? That act disturbed me - he did not even kneel when she died.I am not speaking of hypocrisy here just thinking of a young poseur who was thinking of himself above all - as you do at that age - especially if you are the ''favourite'. How much are the writings of Joyce autobiographical? Is the 'real 'Stephen Dedalus - AKA Joyce - a 'self-obsessed arsehole' - and did Joyce realise that about himself during his writing?

Gorgeously appropriate

I continue to love this series like you wouldn't believe. 

 

Beautiful art, heartbreaking storyline that keeps me coming back for more. 

 

No emotional energy to write more.

Another beautiful issue!
Daredevil (2015-) #610 - Charles Soule,Phil Noto

Soule and Noto nail it, while tightening the noose around Murdock.   Brilliant stuff, heartbreaking story arc as Elektra makes an appearance. 

 

Noto's Elektra is stunning.

So, so good!
Optimus Prime #18 - Kei Zama,Livio Ramondelli,John Barber

I should point out: there is a Star Trek Animated crossover with Transformers, that I couldn't even with, but cannon in this universe?   This and Unicorn, I've purchased it all, and that's all I have.   Saaaad. 

 

This day sucks, and I need comics.   Like I'm 100% convinced a divorce is looming in my family's future and I'm with my sister to make sure she doesn't hurt herself.   I need comics so, so bad. 

 

And this.   I sucked in a breath.    Shockwave is back, which WTF, he's supposed to be completely dead.   And it's shocking, surprising, and... actually all makes sense in a very Shockwave way. 

 

Love, love, love this series right now.   Maybe part of it is just really truly enjoying the thing I know I don't have much left of?

Beautiful!
Daredevil (2015-) #609 - Charles Soule,Phil Noto

I'd say this is the most lush and gorgeous art that Noto has done, but that's unfair to Noto: his art tends to be pretty uniformly gorgeous.   Breathtaking all the time.   There were certain images here, though, that vied for all time favorite: a discolored image of a library in muted, eerie greens, Daredevil's mask haloed in  red that made me stop on that particular panel. 

 

And of course, it all works in combination with Soule's art, running along at a, well, breathtaking pace as Matt barrels along with a newfound sense of morality - or newfound again, as I believe he has this crises every once in a while - and still is as reckless as ever regardless.   He has to do what he can with the time he has left, after all.

 

The fact that this is called the Death of Daredevil and the next ongoing DD series does not seem to be about Matt Murdock?   It makes this a little more: a little more tense, a little more aware that Daredevil is being not only reckless, but stupidly reckless. ÂI should feel disdain for him, and me and my sister are camped out in her room, hiding from the fighting - yay Thanksgiving :/ - making fun of how reckless Murdock is.   And yet all I am is worried about him: seems as if he’s not going to make it, Marvel isn’t hiding it, and I want him to survive.  

 

Bless Marvel, they’ll realize he’s a mainstay and bring him back eventually, but I’m not looking forward to my Inhuman-less, Matt Murdock-less years…
