Flash Gordon 5 (August 2014)

Odd issue. Parker splits it in two–with Sandy Jarrell and Richard Case on art for the first part and Shanier on the second. The first part, which is just Flash, Dale and Zarkov… Continue reading

Deadenders 8 (October 2000)

This issue might be the most Love and Rockets influenced issue of Deadenders yet. It might even just be homage. Brubaker follows a relatively unfamiliar member of the supporting cast–she’s so unfamiliar I… Continue reading

Deadenders 7 (September 2000)

Reading Deadenders is watching Brubaker’s development as a writer. At least one hopes he’s developing and learning from the mistakes. For example, if you’re going to write an ongoing comic book, it’s not… Continue reading

Deadenders 6 (August 2000)

Brubaker runs into a big problem this issue; I’m a little surprised, because it’s an obvious one. His backup episode, about one of the characters crushing on a guy, is far more effective… Continue reading

Deadenders 5 (July 2000)

Brubaker does a nice move starting out this new arc. He sets the action ahead about a month from the last issue. The reader hears, from the characters, about the time between, but… Continue reading

Deadenders 4 (June 2000)

I think this issue finishes Deadenders‘s first arc. Brubaker sends it off on a high point, but only because he finishes the issue with a short Archie-style story. The rest of the issue… Continue reading

Deadenders 3 (May 2000)

Brubaker outdoes himself this issue. He achieves a startling moments of emotion, which isn’t easy to do in a comic book, but he does it here. Obviously, Pleece and Case have a lot… Continue reading

Deadenders 2 (April 2000)

Brubaker works three points of view into this issue. He opens with Beezer’s girlfriend, Sophie, who’s writing in her journal about the issue’s events so she’s supposedly the primary. But Beezer runs off… Continue reading

Deadenders 1 (March 2000)

Ed Brubaker opens the first Deadenders issue rather predictably. Sure, the details about the future world are a different (a little) from other dystopian future worlds, but there’s nothing glaringly original. Two rich… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 6 (September 1995)

Ok, I missed the part about the cataclysmic world altering events only taking place in the West and not effecting anything else in America. Apparently, Delano doesn’t like the Huron. Though there was… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 5 (August 1995)

Well, the issue I’ve been dreading, the one where Delano explains all the backstory, here it is. And is it as bad as I’d anticipated? Oh, yeah. As the American people flock–nude–to the… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 4 (July 1995)

See, a cliffhanger. The bad guy is getting ready to do something bad and “to be continued.” It’s an awkward issue, a bridging one, setting up the big conclusion. The comic takes place… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 3 (June 1995)

For the first time, Delano just writes an issue–meaning there’s no crazy illuminati explanations this time around. Instead, it’s just an issue. And it’s a good comic book. The potential finally starts to… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 2 (April 1995)

The second issue has a whole bunch of problems. Some relate to the first issue, some don’t. The biggest one–Big Brother is real and has been fighting the Native American culture for five… Continue reading

Ghostdancing 1 (March 1995)

So far–and one issue of six isn’t far enough to judge, I know–Ghostdancing isn’t impressing me. It takes the entire issue to get to the hook–the animal gods (or something like animal gods)… Continue reading
