Sick Comics

As I was sick last week, I read some of my old comics I have laying around:

  1. Origin: Pretty bad.  I don’t remember it being that bad the first time I read the whole thing, but I found it to be almost unreadable this time.
  2. Harbinger: pretty good.  I don’t remember it being that good the first time I read the first storyline, but Lapham is damn good (especially for a kid).  I think it’s a fairly good predictor of how super-heroes would actually be discovered in real life.  It was also a good start-up book for Valiant.
  3. Batman: Year One: I’ve said this before, Frank Miller should stick to comics.  Year One is spectacular.  The only part I don’t like is where Gordon is a bad-ass.  He beats up some dude just to show some dude that he can.
  4. Preludes & Nocturnes: I’m not a big Neil Gaiman fan – too high fantasy for me (I read American Gods, and although I thought the ideas were good, I just don’t find Gaiman’s prose interesting enough to keep me reading), but this first Sandman volume is pretty cool.  I think it’s neat to see how fast Gaiman’s and Keith’s art progress in just a few short issues
