    Post Weekly Reviews - 07 November 2012 (With Previews)

    Hi.


    This week's reviews thread.
    The previews section is taken from Diamond's page, here:

    ONWARD!



    This is a thread to post some quick one paragraph
    reviews of the week's releases.


    We have the reviews section to come back some time in the
    future, this is more informal and just to get a paragraph of your
    thoughts on the week's releases, and to discuss each other's opinions
    thereafter, if one feels the need.


    Here's the format:
    Title (publisher) # - Rating Out Of 5

    One paragraph review goes here.

    Title (publisher) # - Rating Out Of 5
    One paragraph review goes here.
    Post as much or as little as you like, I'll
    create a new thread each week.

    And they've got Warren Ellis this time! It's like they were reading my mind.






    If any of you characters end up at Thought Bubble this year, save me a copy of this....

    Fysh- That would be awesome! Do you use Paypal?

    Or is there anything that I could send from the states in fair trade?

    Just let me know and we'll work something out.

    A swap would be more interesting, but we can sort it out later. I'll PM you once I've got it.

    Default Freelancers # 1 (Boom!)

    I tried this because it's only a dollar, and it was better than I thought it would be. Sharp, witty dialog tells the story of two orphaned girls raised in a dojo with other kids to be Kung Fu bad-asses. AKA Freelancers for hire. Another girls-kicking-ass tale that wants to be a movie or TV show. Nothing new, but well done. Fun for a buck, take that in the balls Marvel.

    First up, these are all digital comic reviews. Secondly, im not sure if they are from this week or last week, but you know, recent.

    Action Cats One-shot (Monkeybrain Comics) 2/5 (young kids 3.5/5)
    (23 pages, $0.99)
    Very kid friendly story about a group of superhero cats, both in costume and out. Not much for adults here but a nice little story to kid younger kids entertained.

    Amelia Cole and the Unknown World #4 (Monkeybrain Comics) 3.5/5
    (25 pages)
    One of the best comics that Monkeybrain are putting out (and the most regular as well)
    A world of magic and science, quirky charecters like Lemmy the Golum and a story that zips along nicely.
    If this was out in paper form id buy it in a instant. Well worth a look.

    The Stars Below One Shot (Monkeybrain comics) 4/5
    (21 pages, $0.99)
    A pidgeon flys into a Planetarium and sees the stars for the first time. But out on the streets of new york he cant see the stars so sets off to try and reach the citys highest point so he can once more see those stars.
    A sweet and lovely story, told in black and white without words, that shows just how expressive and fun comics really can be.

    Default Westward # 2

    Buy this book, if you can find it! Now I'm really into this series. A very well written page turner that will take longer than 5 minutes to read. Intelligent characters, dilemmas and issues told with nice B&W art. And robotics and Steampunk! This book deserves attention. I want it to survive. For only $ 2.99 an issue you won't be sorry.

    I've heard about Westward, very interesting looking b&w comic. Picked up Thought Bubble too and I realized I STILL haven't read last year's issue! Hah, I've got two Thought Bubble's to read.
