I Bought Comics: July 29, 2009

[Thoughts, memories, musing, rants, raves, just don't call them reviews.]

glamourpuss #8

There has never been a comic book like glamourpuss and there never will be again. That's a shame, because this is such a great read. Each issue goes off in unexpected directions, providing more information than you'd think possible, and really challenging you to keep up with where Sim is going. I'm surprised to learn that the glamourpuss Book Club selection here, Influence by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen is a real book. The Olsen Twins interview people related to the fashion and art world? Really? Weird. I also learned in this issue that the author of Gone with the Wind, Margaret Mitchell was apparently a porn junkie. Weird.

Ignition City #4

The art looks worse, less complete here. At first, I thought it was a different inker (since I thought the inker was another Italian), but, nope. So no clue what happened here. I still like this book quite a bit. Ellis is one of the most optimistic and sentimental writers around -- he just disguises it under lots of bastard stuff. I don't like the trick of hiding the BIG REVEAL from us, but whatever.

New Avengers #55

Stuart Immonen is here praise the lord no more of that shitty Billy Tan spew that one poster on the CBR forums though invalidated one of my reviews as I dared to call it ugly which it was ugly uglu ugly art oh but not the work of Immonen who is fantastically wonderful oh yes yay Immonen is here

Secret Warriors #6

I really enjoyed this issue, but something about it left me cold. The last page reveal is good, but not too shocking. The action was good. I don't know. Could just be an off day on my part. Can't wait to see what Hickman has in store for us in the next arc.
