Re: Comics and Graphic Novels Vol. 2
I read Grimm Fairy Tales vol 12 and Bloodshot: The Rise and the Fall.
Bloodshot was pretty damn good. Yeah the whole government making superhuman assassins is old hat, but even good writing can make an old concept good and this book does that. The agency that controls the superhumans makes the ones in DC and Marvel look almost tame in comparison. Hell some of the people operating the place range from scary to body horror. We learn a little more about Bloodshot and his past. I like this mystery. Next is a tie in to Harbringer Wars. Umm, is it a good idea to do a crossover event this soon?
GFT was dark this time. While this is nothing new, this issue boarder on Wonderland dark. Sela is now in prison after the end of vol 11, a prison known as The Shoe and after what has happened, doesn't want to leave, despite the efforts of a well meaning, yet naive case worker. Of course, there is a tough chick that wants to take her out, but this time there is a twist. The most surreal part is when Sela is put into the Abyss (The Shoes version of the hole) and well, its pretty horrifying. This vol was pretty refreshing though after the long and my opinion drawn out Myst arc.
