Geek Goggle Reviews: Walking Dead #131

Walking Dead #131Walking Dead #131

Walking Dead continues to world build (or is it New World build?) as this issue is mostly conversations and setup. The bulk of the issue showcases Maggie and Carl. Two of the main cast that hasn't seen much panel time since the leap forward of two years. The book has a nice pace to it and is definitely taking its time in allowing the readers to get to know the characters again. On the flip side the read is boring by Walking Dead standards. You can't go wrong picking this comic book up but this is not one of the more memorable issues in the series.

Wayward is the latest Image launch, but this one with Jim Zub's name attached to it. The comic is a fun read but doesn't quite stand out from a very busy crowd of creator-owned comics that sport the fun mixed real-life type super powered type genre. This is worth checking out, but may not resonate with every reader.

Geek Goggle Reviews: The Fade Out #1

Brubaker & Phillips

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips wrap up Fatale last month and kick off their next noir story, The Fade Out, this month. The interesting component of this opening issue is how the comic feels like a genuine period piece, in the vain of Mad Men, where as so many of their other books seemed to have the ability to transcend a specific time period. If you have a read a Brubaker and Phillips book before then you know what you are getting into. However, if you are new to their work then this series looks to have a cast of hard characters in a seedy underworld that wears the happy face of Hollywood. This first issue is about as strong as it gets. I highly recommend this comic book.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Outcast By Kirkman And Azaceta #3

Kirkman & Azaceta

The art of telling a self-contained and individual story in a single issue sometimes gives way to using single issues as a necessary evil to getting to the collected edition. When this happens the single issue read is simply awkward. The third issue of Outcast is exactly that. Kirkman jumps from scene to scene and doesn't stop to introduce characters or set up basic things like if the scene is a flashback or not. The read is a tough one to make sense of despite that the pace is quick and the artwork is nice to look at. I hope this comic gets back to what it presented in issue one and I hope it happens quickly.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Spread #2

The second issue of Spread is quite different from the first one. This issue introduces the head of the bad guy group and puts out some slavers in the path of the lead character, "No" and the baby, Hope. As a result, this comic is starting to settle too much in familiar apocalyptic circles. The narration helps the comic along nicely and the book is backed up by stellar artwork. I'm not sure what to make of this series yet but with a strong first issue and a decent second issue I think the potential is still there. I recommend checking this out.

Imperial is a comic book about a regular guy that seems to have destiny call upon him to be a super hero. The book is something that there seems to be a lot of lately: a creator owned vision of super heroes set in a more real life setting. However, this comic has a small cast and provides a good glimpse into the characters and their lives, which helps to make the comic book more engaging and charming. I found a lot to like in this opening issue and I recommend checking this out.

Geek Goggle Reviews: Low #1

Low #1Low #1

Remender & Tocchini

Low is comic book that is as science-fiction as they come. The obvious comparison within this first issue is to the Fantastic Four. However, this comic is much more mature in its primary topic and in its execution. I found the first issue to be rather ordinary but the setup for a classic seems to be there. We’ll have to see how this comic progresses over the next few issues.

Kirkman & Azaceta

The second issue of Outcast is a much different comic book from the first issue. This issue is much more world-building and a slow-burn type of story. It’s an okay comic but it doesn’t have any of the extra power that the first issue had. This slower kind of pace could be a dip in the arc or it could be the real direction of the series where the first issue was the outlier. While an entertaining read this is a large step down from the first issue. We will have to wait and see where this is going.
