Review: Godzilla Cataclysm #3

Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Dave Wachter have been doing a wonderful job of crafting an epic, sprawling storyline with Godzilla Cataclysm thus far. The idea of exploring the classic Godzilla monsters as religious deities is a fascinating one that gives great weight and grandiosity to the plot. Additionally, the visuals have established an incredibly compelling ominous and dreary tone. The newest issue, #3, is the weakest yet, thanks to a more slow, plodding pace and some repetition, but it is still another enjoyable chapter of this awesome series.

cata3

Much of this issue is filled with dialogue that adds to the overall beat of the religious angle to the monsters. The characters of this comic get more frantic and scared, all of which is interesting despite feeling a little overly reminiscent of past issues. The past of the old-wise-man archetype is teased a bit more, smartly creating an exciting sense of mystery. While there isn’t really any tense build-up, action eventually shows up towards the latter half and excites just like in past issues.

The intimidating, giant monsters still pop off the page and still seem to move thanks to how dynamic the art looks. The colors of the monsters pose big contrast to the typically mute color scheme of the rest of the comic, creating the same neat effect of past issues. Most of the new action is fresh and interesting, this issue focusing on “Megaguirus,” a massive, winged bug with a ton of limbs and an army of smaller buddies backing him up. The flying menaces fill up the pages, and whenever Megaguirus clashes with Mothra, huge, explosive collisions ensue. It’s excellent stuff, even though a few panels look just like work from past issues.

Not enough new ground is touched upon in the latest issue of Godzilla: Cataclysm, but all of the essentials for this series are definitely present.

IDW Publishing to Bring Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently to Comics

Dirk GentlyIn partnership with Ideate Media, IDW Publishing has announced that Dirk Gently will be appearing in his first-ever comic-book series in 2015, helping to prove the interconnectedness of all things, the precept by which Dirk Gently, Douglas Adams’ beloved fictional “holistic detective” lives.

Following the recent announcement that Gently will be developed for television by IDW Entertainment and Ideate Media with Circle of Confusion as Executive Producers and Max Landis as showrunner, IDW will also launch an ongoing series of all-new Dirk Gently adventures as comic books.

The series launching in spring 2015, will be written by Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief and creator/writer of series such as Zombies vs Robots, Groom Lake, and The Hollows. The series artist will be Tony Akins, and Chew co-creator Rob Guillory has contributed a first cover image, too. Full story details and release information will follow soon.

Adams’ Dirk Gently, who appeared in Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Dirk Gently’s Long, Dark Tea-time of the Soul, and the unfinished Dirk Gently fragment that Douglas was writing at the time of his death The Salmon of Doubt, is a charismatic, mysterious, troubled, brilliant, figure—cursed with a relentless intellect, psychic powers he doesn’t fully understand or want, a gift for self-mythologizing, and a supernatural ability to detect disturbances in the fabric of reality. Dirk has found a strange calling as a private detective for impossible crimes, the likes of which will take many forms in the comics.

Review: Skylanders #1

Skylanders 1 coverThe smash-hit videogame and toy sensation, Skylanders, makes its comic book debut this fall! This all-new series will focus on fan-favorite characters and features stories tying directly into the videogames that cannot be found anywhere else!

I know very little about the Skylanders video game. I know that it’s some toy figures you put on a base and then you can play games with them based on the figures. That’s about where my knowledge ends, as I’ve never played it myself, and don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone play it either. As far as the characters, my knowledge is also lacking, and I chalked it all up to being the latest craze of games featuring small creatures you collect, continuing a long tradition.

Overall, I went into the first issue with an open mind, but generally expecting a cash-in to the video game. In reality, I found a comic that felt more like a worthy successor to the Saturday morning cartoons of my youth, that are currently awol for today’s kids. The comic features two stories, one a comedic trip through the skies as the latest Skylanders class heads to their destination, and the other an origin of sorts for the character Trigger Happy. Neither you needed to know anything about the characters or world, and both were very enjoyable, even as an adult. Yes, the comic is generally geared towards kids, but the humor peppered throughout has enough winks and nods that also makes them enjoyable for adults as well.

The art is pretty solid with a consistent look between both stories. Each artist captures the kinetic energy of each story well, giving it a flow that helps out and adds to the humor, especially the physical comedy of a lot of it.

IDW’s Skylanders comic is a worthy addition to the growing line of comics geared towards kids. And more impressively, even though it’s an off-shoot of a very successful toy/game line, it doesn’t feel as such. If you’re a long time fan of Skylanders, or totally new to it all, Skylanders is simply fun. This is an absolute buy for fans of the serious, or those looking for a fun comic to give their kids.

New York Comic Con 2014: Spider-Man Swings Into the Library of American Comics & IDW Publishing

The Amazing Spider-ManAdding to IDW Publishing’s ever-growing partnership with Marvel, the publishers announced at New York Comic Con they will be teaming up to bring the world’s most popular Super-Hero, The Amazing Spider-Man, to IDW’s Library of American Comics (LOAC) imprint.

The wondrous wall-crawler’s long-running newspaper strip by Stan Lee, John Romita, and others will be collected in a series of deluxe new hardcover editions that are sure to leave Super Hero fans and comic-strip collectors equally delighted. Consistent with the other newspaper strip reprints in the Library of American Comics line, each volume in the Spider-Man series will include full-color Sunday pages.

Launched in 1977, the Spider-Man newspaper strip begins with Peter Parker’s arachnid alter-ego facing off against the deadly menace of Doctor Doom! Classic Spidey villains, including Kraven the Hunter, Doctor Octopus, Mysterio, and the Kingpin,  make appearances in pulse-pounding tales drawn by master Spider-artist John Romita Sr. and written by none other than Spider-Man co-creator Stan “The Man” Lee! As the series unfolds, the artistic torch was passed to Larry Lieber (Stan’s younger brother), Paul Ryan, Alex Saviuk, and legendary inker “Joltin’” Joe Sinnott. No matter the artistic interpretation on display, The Amazing Spider-Man comic strip features the kind of fast-paced action and genuine human emotion that has made Peter Parker a star in movies, theatre, TV, video games, and the comic books that started it all back in 1962 with Amazing Fantasy #15.

LOAC’s Spider-Man series is designed by Dean Mullaney and edited by Bruce Canwell, both winners of multiple 2014 Eisner Awards for Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth.

The Amazing Spider-Man, Volume 1 goes on sale in early 2015, so plan a visit to your favorite comics shop or bookseller so you can enjoy the special Lee/Romita storytelling magic and learn with Peter Parker once again that, “With great power comes great responsibility”.
