“This series is showing its colors as a highly psychological story...”Â The sepia toning throughout the issue gives a sense of the decay and delirium that must certainly follow an experience like this.
Overall: 4 stars.”Â This is a pretty gutsy series…”Â There’s a lot to be drawn in by here – provided the reader has the patience to get to it and the interest in “real” characters.
I’m enjoying this title immensely. The premise is different, and the character development is outstanding. My only complaint is that I don’t have issue #3 in my hands to keep on reading.
well written and was a good addition to the series.”Â …this is a series that you should be keeping track of…
This was a good read… Well worth the effort.
“End of Chapter One brings home nearly all the ongoing plot threads in very satisfying fashion…”Â Kudos especially to Azaceta for evoking that [Hitchcockian] feeling. Looking forward to what happens next. A”
“Once more Giffen and JMD make with the bwah… it’s amusing all the way through. It also serves as a nifty satire slash homage to the classic Marvel origin story… They won’t revolutionize the industry or push comics in any one particular direction, but I’ve enjoyed every one of these Planetary Brigade outings so far, and this one keeps the streak alive.”
“It’s all done with a knowing wink to the conventions of the genre, and although Giffen and DeMatteis have mined this vein over and over, it’s still funny.”Â Look, you keep seeing Christopher Guest mockumentaries, don’t you?”Â Well, you should.”Â Even though you know that Fred Willard will be a friendly doofus and Eugene Levy will be an earnest doofus and Catherine O’Hara will be a semi-talented doofus and Parker Posey will be a shrill doofus and Michael McKean will be a gay doofus, you still see the movies!”
“My favorite story of the lot is the last one, “Rum & Inspiration.” The art by the always wonderful Fabio Moon is great as expected, and Christopher Golden turns in a solid story of pirates in a bar, with a twist at the end.
“In all, another solid outing from the team at Boom! “
“the work throughout is uniformly excellent, from the loosest pencil sketch to the tightest inked page sample.
“Edwards’ blocky rendering enlivens a multitude of subjects, from mainstream Superman to some of his own creations, which I hope we get to see more of. His section is the highlight of the book, but I’m a little biased.
“If you’re a fan of good art, then you should consider checking this out. If you’re a big fan of Edwards, then you MUST.”
