Review: Caged Birds #1

Caged Birds #1

One thing my mother told me is that you can tell by how food tastes whether the cook loves their work. This is a lesson I took with me throughout life, as I have used this analogy for different situations. One of the earliest analogies I used it against were teachers. Like any adolescent, my early years were not only shaped by my family but also my teachers.

I had certain teachers who you can tell from the outset that it was only a job. Then there were those teachers who loved teaching and they were interested in the well being of their students. They formed personal bonds along the way. Those were the teachers who long after you left school, you always remember. In the first issue of Ken Mora’s Caged Birds, we find one teacher and a student whose life is about to change.

We meet two young friends, Anna where one is practicing how to play her flute, while Anna dances. Soon, Anna lets her feelings out, leaving her vulnerable, which shakes her father to the core, as his core beliefs don’t allow him to be enlightened in a way of thinking. She eventually asks her piano teacher, Mr. George to intervene. She would eventually fall in love with him and marry, embarking on a life-changing journey where her love for music and his eventual love for her intertwine.  As time passes, so does her love for him, as her career takes off, soon George’s attention finds another muse, in Marie.

Overall, a rather exquisite slice of life story that has hints of Lolita and Last Tango In Paris. The story by Mora definitely feels like a guilty pleasure. The art by the creative team is beautiful. Altogether, a story that is inscrutable and hypnotic.

Review: The Wild Warriors #2

The Wild Warriors #2

In times of distress, the fight or flight syndrome usually kicks in for most people. Adversity affects people differently. When I was in the military, before we go on deployments, we usually conducted training exercises. In those exercises, you sometimes saw how people you worked with would act in a heated situation.

It was eye-opening. Certain individuals would lose their heads and forget that they were in the military. Then there are those,where the training just kicked in and they went along with what they were trained for.  Eventually, your true nature comes out and if you can be trusted in a firefight becomes suddenly apparent. In Camilo Ruiz’s second issue of The Wild Warriors, we find Kumbo’s tribe fighting for their lives.

As Kumbo finds himself entangled with Big Pap of the Crocodile clan, Trumbo, intervenes, leaving the rest of his family vulnerable to Big Papa’s clan. This misstep by Trumbo, cost’s his wife, Kumbo’s mother, her life, which forces Trumbo, to lose his cool, and fall to the Crocodile clan, the same, leaving enough time for Kumbo and what was left of his family to flee. Kumbo would reach the monastery and study for the next three years, as the memory of that tragic day was seared into his mind. By the issue’s end, he embarks on a journey to find answers who gave away their location to the Crocodile clan.

Overall, an absorbing issue, which delivers the lesson that sometimes losing is part of life and what you do next is what matters. The story by Ruiz is action-packed and contemplative. The art by Ruiz is magnificent. Altogether, this issue opens the door to more possibilities.

Review: Rhyme Travelers #1

Rhyme Travelers #1

Anybody who was alive during the 1990s can remember the travesty known as the WB Network. This what eventually became UPN and what turned into its present form, the CW Network. The network has more mainstream fare than it has in previous years but definitely invests in genre programming. When the network initially started in 1995 it had some very problematic shows that they decided to air.

The shows tried to cater to the African American community, where they showed programming like The Game and Girlfriends. They also showed funny yet forgettable shows like The Jamie Foxx Show and The Wayan Bros.  They also presented shows, which makes me still cringe like Homeboys In Outer Space. In the debut issue of Rhyme Travelers, we meet some protagonists which remind me of the latter, with a few exceptions.

Meet the Rhyme Travelers as they look for their next gig. They’re running out of gas traveling the universe where they find a job working a mall known as The Floating Gardens Of Baubelon. As they start working their new job, they soon find themselves embroiled in the same trap, the customers of the mall do, debt. As they look to find out who is behind all of this, they run into the mall’s security, the S.H.A.R.C.S., which they destroy and find the why the cards were issued in the first place. By issue’s end, the Rhyme Travelers uncover a mind control scheme and save the day.

Overall, the book seems to a bit stereotypical and dated despite its publication date. The story by Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca is funny but contains a ton of overused story tropes. The art by Kenny Keil is the best part of the book. Altogether, I would tell readers to borrow it, as the issue isn’t worth the price of admission.

Story: Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca Art: Kenny Keil
Story: 5.0 Art: 8.0 Overall: 6.4 Recommendation: Read
