Airboy 1 (June 2015)

Airboy #1

Remember James Robinson? He wrote a bunch of DC comics recently–according to himself in his new series, Airboy, no one liked. Everyone liked his Golden Age or retro stuff from the nineties. It’s a shame he didn’t have the stones to talk about when he said his League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the movie) was better than League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the comic book).

Airboy is about Robinson (the comic book’s writer) and Greg Hinkle (the comic’s artist) trying to make a new version of Airboy. Is the comic true? Probably not. I can’t imagine Image soliciting creators for an Airboy relaunch and Robinson and Hinkle would probably be dead from all the drugs they do in the comic.

It’s okay. Hinkle’s got a nice style and great attention to detail (I loved when Robinson looked out his window for traffic) but, so far, it’s one note and incredibly derivative.
