FEARLESS REVIEWER

Erica Friedman reads Fearless Defenders.

Okay, but, you say, what about the script? It was pretty good, wasn’t it? Fearless Defenders reads just like Tantric Stripfighter Trina, only in 20 pages not 200. The fact that the issue is a mere 20 pages is part of the problem, but the writing also made me very aware of the fact that American comics are now written for a very specific audience, one that does not include me. I’ve been defending comics a long time, but if this an example of a good one, I’m done. Like a Hollywood movie, every line was trite and overplayed.

Nerdy Day Off – 30 (ECCC)
I’m going to ECCC tomorrow and thought I might like to have lunch with a cute nerdy girl who can talk comics. I’m going to be attending with an old friend, but he wouldn’t distract me from an adequately attractive girl with a brain and opinions…Hit me back if you’re going tomorrow and would like to do a quasi-lunch date and have a discussion/heated debate about the state of the comic world. Pic for pic. BTW, I’m 5’10” 160, bearded and have some tattoos. Just looking to meet someone who loves what I love.
