Suspended Animation Review: Anthem

April 14th, 2006 7:56am by ComicList Email

Anthem, published by Heroic Publishing, Inc., 32 pages, $3.25.

A few weeks ago, I was thrilled to see something on the spinner rack at a
bookstore I hadn't expected to see; a comic written by Roy Thomas. For
those who don't know, Roy is a highly-respected figure within
the comics industry, having been writing and/or editing since the'60's. Not
having penned a story in a number of years, however, Anthem #1 is fairly
solid proof that there's no rust on that guy.

Suspended Animation Review: The Surrogates #1

April 7th, 2006 6:29pm by ComicList Email

The Surrogates #1 (of 5)/24 pgs. & $2.95 from Top Shelf/words by Robert
Wenditti; art by Brett Weldele/sold at and comics

In the future, almost everyone owns a surrogate, an android who does
everything one doesn't want to do, and some things one doesn't want to get
caught doing.

An android is a robot that looks like a human. Regrettably, in this exciting
new mini-series, they act like humans as well. As proof, two androids whom
are about to have sex in an alley are
murdered…if one can murder something that isn't really alive.

Well written, and drawn in an effective, abstract style, one of the
strengths of this new SF series is its willingness to tackle tough political
and moral questions without preaching to a reader.
In addition, and worthy of praise, is the restraint used by the creative
team when handling sexual issues and violence. Less is always more; nothing
in literature is more powerful than the human

Surrogates is highly recommended for mature readers. MV

Tales of the Terminal Diner/96 pgs. & $9.95 from Sonic Comics/various
writers and artists/sold at comics shops and

Terminal Diner is an anthology of tales told over coffee at a restaurant
located at the corner of Unreal and Real. You are as likely to buy a donut
as an order of barbequed dragon wings.

These pithy stories cover the gamut of literary genres and styles of art,
and more than one is likely to be your cup of tea. None will offend anyone
but the weakest of hearts.The only disappointment is that the diner doesn't
feature an All You Can Read buffet.

Terminal Diner features the work of professionals including Michael T.
Gilbert, Don Lomax, Steve Skeates, Fred Hembeck, and the last story written
and drawn by Oklahoma Cartoonists Museum associate, Richard "Grass" Green.
