Review: Comichaus #10

Anthology shows are a thing these days, as increasingly networks are considering the format, because of the flexibility. As the rigors of telling a story, but conventional means, has stifled not only creators but also audiences.  One such example of unconventional storytelling is the popular This Is Us, where the story is not only told form two timelines but also various characters, all interconnected, and each story sharing the same message of that episode. During all this, the story evokes all senses and emotions, form laughter to tears, the show reaches us every viewer.

A genre show, which does the same thing, but adds some scares, is the almost undefinable Room 104, which has just about touched every genre since it has entered popular media. The very fist episode, manipulated viewer’s understanding of multiple personalities and lets the audience know of the costs of not identifying it. In the tenth issue of Comichaus, each creator brings their “A game,” as some conclude their stories and others bring it to a climax. In the fourth part of Homeopaths, our heroes eventually defeat the evil Doctor, and though they are a bit scarred from what she did to them, they both could now finally get a good night’s sleep.

In the conclusion to “Mandy The Monster Hunter,” our heroine soon finds out that no tall monsters are bad, and peace can have attained without killing each other. In “Splendid Grins,” a man of the law finds himself at odds, as he questions his reason for being. In the conclusion to “Cold,” our heroine ends the evil that destroyed her life for the last time. In the last story, “The Lost Legionnaire,” a group of Roman soldiers gets trapped in a forest full of supernatural creatures, before meeting their fate.

Overall, a strong group of stories which not only anchor this issue but makes this one of the premiere books for all readers. The stories by the creator are strong, smart and most of all, entertaining. The art by the creators more than complement the stories. Altogether, another strong installment in what is an excellent series.

Review: Comichaus #9

Having just watched the documentary Future Shock, one epiphany I had is the indie scene in for comics is huge in England. I learned a few things about how those first creators at 2000AD changed the way we see the future, not only in comics, but largely throughout popular culture. The recent boom in dystopian fiction, can be attributed to these creators, too many to name but include in their ranks are the creators of Watchmen, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Denzel Washington’s dystopian rogue movie, Book Of Eli, has heavy influences from Judge Dredd’s Cursed Earth storyline.

Even some of the more obscure science fiction movies of the 1980s like Hardware, derives much of its story from Patty Mills stories in the storied magazine. The influence of those creators up to today can be seen in today’ s writers and artists, especially in indie comic magazines like Comichaus. In the latest issue, Homeopathos, James and Alan retrace their steps back to the mad scientist who abducted them in the first place, but unexpectedly must fight for their lives. In Mandy the Monster Hunter, Mandy has to train the children who were left as orphans due to the carnage of the monsters, as they become empowered to use their strengths to fight them.

In Cold, the survivors who are left over, try find some normalcy amongst each other, but just as they get adjusted the Colds, invade their quiet moment. In Splendid Grins, a criminal serving out his time taking out demons, finds a cult leader, whose is more than what he was told. In The Monochrome Kid, a mind melding being steals song ideas from a rival songwriter, causing chaos in his life. In Sandwiches, a demon uses people’s insecurities against them.

Overall, another strong installment for this epic series, as each issue is a fun trip. The stories contained prove that each writer are ones to watch. The art by each other artists are beautiful, especially the work done in Sandwiches. Altogether, a great issue, that proves Britain is still fertile soil for  new comics talent.

Review: Comichaus #7

I have been an avid reader of Mad Magazine ever since I can remember, as have aunts that still ask do I read as they remember I read it back when I was seven. I was also a reader of Cracked Magazine. In my humble opinion, both magazines were funny, and asking me to choose one is better is nonsense. To me, it is like comparing Star Wars to Star Trek, as there really is no comparison, as both are deserving of their fanbases.

In every issue, every creator, understood their audience and was not too high on their horse not to pick on themselves. That fearlessness only lives in some of the best creators and that I what I am seeing at Comichaus. In the new installment, of Chalk, Jacqueline finds out someone is stealing souls and almost loses her life in finding out. In this installment of, MIA, our heroines are caught up as the police are on their tail and thy are on the hook for the massacre but one knows what to do next.

In Mandy the Monster Hunter, Mandy skillfully destroys a monster and reloads for the war on the road with the tourist couple. In new story, Homeopathos, a man fighting insomnia gets some medicine which gives him a more than he expects.  In Cold, our couple gets embroiled in the middle of an outbreak, which renders some mindless flaming zombies. In new story, Gods Of a Lesser Sphere, a post-apocalyptic world, which is very familiar looking yields a new superhero which will give some readers wish fulfillment.

Overall, every story including the new stories innovate and are not scared to challenge the reader. The stories contained within, are excellent. The art makes this issue shine. Altogether, a great issue, where the reader’s imagination will reach new heights.
