Every week I do a column full of comic book reviews as I've done since March 2003 and currently published at Comic Book Resources. Then, after the reviews post, I try to come over to Komplicated and expand on the thoughts and ideas listed there. Why talk about stuff at some other site? Oh, like you've never done any private projects when you're at work! Sometimes things get profound, sometimes it's gibberish, but it's always about comics … let's see what we get this week!
What? This week's reviews …
FAT COBRAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!! Fat Cobra. Ken Hale the Gorilla Man. Teamed up with Wolverine, looking non-plussed and actually being kind of funny. That's wonderful. Such a good application of elements from Agents of Atlas.
TEN POINTS FOR SLITHERING: Speaking of a different kind of "Cobra," I am again stricken by the fact that IDW's iteration of the G.I. Joe team is simply not very good at their jobs. They're the CTU of comics right now, and it's wonderful, because it gives Cobra a chance to be somebody and not just a team of losers like Raptor and … okay, he was really the most ridiculous Cobra of all, even that hypnotist dude became cool. I really think the artistic choices made by the company do a real disservice to this property, and after seeing Duane Swieczynski do so much with a prose story, I wonder if the future of the property is a lot less visual.
RELISH WHAT'S ABOUT TO HAPPEN: I really would have liked to have been more positive about this series … if I could remember it. I remember a vague sense that it was very interesting to start, and that I liked it … but the issues are buried in my closet, and I don't remember why I liked it so much. Despite the overwhelming cost and challenges, I really think mini series should be completed before soliciting them to Diamond.
THAT'S THE NEWS, AND I AM OUTTA HERE: Right. Off to do stuff. Also: I don't like the cold. Hasta!
