The Basics:

Nearly a year ago, my best friend since high school, Dom, moved into a new house. This is relevant, because thanks to this move, I came into possession of several spindles of DVDs containing hundreds of DVDs. I was so excited to get these DVDs that they sat collecting dust. Continue reading

So I Bought an Archie Comic…..again

The initial title for this article was going to be “So I Bought an Archie Comic”, because when I first thought about it, I didn’t think I’ve bought any Archie comics since I was a kid, if even then. After doing a minute or two of thinking, I realized 2 years ago I bought the first issue of Afterlife with Archie. I actually thought it was pretty good, but for some reason I didn’t get into it and didn’t purchase or read anymore of it. I’m not an Archie fan, never felt any draw to the story or the characters. I vaguely remember watching “The New Archies” when I was 6 or 7, but I’m so unfamiliar with Archie that I didn’t realize that Sabrina the Teenage Witch was from that universe until I read Afterlife with Archie. Color me clueless.

I read an article on Bleeding Cool a couple months ago that Archie Comics briefly had a Kickstarter campaign trying to raise $350,000.00 to fund a few comics in their new Archie universe after the launch of a new Archie #1, which would bring Archie and Riverdale more into the 21st century. The Kickstarter lasted only a few days before they cancelled it due to internet outrage that a company was using a crowd funding site to raise capital. I didn’t give the book another thought until Monday when I was looking over the list of books coming out this week, I figured I would flip through the book at my local comic shop and if it looked decent I’d give it a shot.

When I go to the comic book store yesterday to pick up my normal stack of books, I found out that Mark Waid (Daredevil) was writing the book and Fiona Staples (Saga) was doing the art. Since I have been really enjoying Mark Waid’s Daredevil run and Fiona Staples art has helped make Saga one of my favorite books, I didn’t even flip through the book, I committed to it site unseen. The only thing I had to figure out was which one of the 22 cover options I was going to get (I decided on the J Scott Campbell Cover).

Archie #1 cover B by J Scott Campbell
Archie #1 cover B by J Scott Campbell

Other than knowing I was a fan of Mark Waid and Fiona Staples’ other work, I went into this book with very little expectations except for it to maybe be a little hokie. That’s always been Archie’s MO right?

As soon as I opened the book, I was happy to see that the art style is Saga-like. Unlike some artists ::cough:: John Romita Jr ::cough::, the similar art style isn’t distracting. Every panel is vibrant & rich, making the story absolutely fun to look at. Mark Waid’s writing is very very good. The book is a different style than Daredevil, with 75%+ of Archie’s dialog is with the reader instead of with other characters. I’ll try not to spoil too much (because this book is worth picking up) but this issue focuses on the recent break of Archie and Betty and how that turns Riverdale High on it’s ear. I definitely enjoyed it, and the hinting of Veronica’s arrival have made me want to pick up issue 2 to see where everything heads. One issue is a little early to commit, but it was enjoyable and if the coming issues continue that trend, they may just have convinced me to become a regular Archie reader.

Rating: 7.5/10

The Naive Project/OSSM Comics: The Adventures of Solestar- Book 1: Give More Than You Take

revisedSolestarCoverOut of everything I’ve written forthis site so far, this review is by far the most daunting. Siike Donnelly, the brains behind Solestar, is a friend. I’m honored that he included me as a member of the “press” with the ability t??????????????o review this. Granted, my plan was to write this review prior to the book being released, but since it was released 11 days earlier, I’m a little behind the eight ball. The point of that little ramble is that I’ve been trying to ramp myself up to write this review, because it’s difficult reviewing a friends work, especially if it isn’t very good. Luckily, that’s not the case with this book, and I don’t have to worry about padding any blows. What I am worried about is it sounding like I’m not be impartial in my review. The book has been released, and the luxury of ramp up time has come and gone.

The Adventures of Solestar started it’s life as a Kickstarter project, and was initially released in 2012. In the interest of transparency, when the book was first released, I skimmed through a copy of the book that a friend had purchased. Skimming it was as far as I got. I d  idn’t know Siike at the time, and I knew virtually nothing about the book or what its goal was. My reason for not r??????????????eading it wasn’t because I thought it was bad. It was because I couldn’t wrap my head around the idea that there was a different artist on each page. At the time, it was a distraction for me, but after finally reading it, it is one of the things I enjoyed the most.

Since the book’s initial release, Siike has become an amazing friend. It started off with him simply being a guest on Mad Scientist Party Hour, and through interacting regularly, he’s become someone I talk to regularly and someone I admire tremendously. The reason this is important to the review is because it’s important that ??????????????you get an idea of the man behind the book. Siike is one of the most warm-hearted, sweetest, most genuine human beings that I’ve ever met. All of those traits come through in this story. Through getting to know Siike, I learned how much work it took for him as an aneurysm survivor to make this story happen. If there’s any one deserving of your admiration, it’s him. He’s overcome so much, he’s doing everything he can to bring awareness to brain aneurysms. He didn’t write this book for fame, glory, or profit. He wrote this book to raise money for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.??????????????

Every page of this book, whether it’s the actual story, or his explanation at the end, is filled with his everything that makes him who he is. In an effort not to spoil too much of the book, the story focuses on the main character, Solestar, spending his last days trying to make sure he’s leaving the world a better place. He manages to find the good in those many consider “Super Villains”. While that sounds like a plot device that’s been used again and again, it’s delivered in a unique way with 150+ artists lending their talents to this book. I’ll admit not all pages were my thing, and I have no problem with admitting that. My dislike for some pages paled in comparison to the pages I loved. I keep trying to find intelligent words to accurately describe T??????????????he Adventures of Solestar, but I keep coming back to the same thing: Solestar has more heart in its pages than anything I’ve ever read, and that is truly and honestly a reflection of its writer.

Image Comics: Red One #1

Red One
Red One #1 by Xavier Dorison with art by Terry & Rachel Dodson

9 time out of 10, when you have no idea what the hell is going on in the first few pages of a comic, it doesn’t turn out well. Pretty much anything with the name “Grant Morrison” attached to it immediately comes to mind. Luckily, this book is written by Xavier Dorison and not Grant Morrison. Even though the first 6 pages of this book initially made little sense to me and their last names rhyme, that’s where the similarities end.

I was excited by the premise of this book: Cold War Russia sends a secret agent to the U.S. to become a super hero and steer the American public in the direction the Kremlin wants.
