Image Comics - New Release Reviews For November 21, 2012
The business of comic books continues to be big money and Diamond Distribution tracks the monthly sales of comic books to specialty stores. It's mostly dominated by Marvel and DC but in October, three Image Comics titles made the top 100.
This included two different The Walking Dead titles and the new Grant Morrison comic book Happy. Image Comics has five new comic books and one original graphic novel available this week. Titles are scored on a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the very best possible. We take the time to read these books so your time isn't wasted.Spawn - Issue 225
This issue is baffling if you're not intimate with all the prior issues. The artwork is interesting, though the overall design makes things a bit difficult to tell what's going on. The dialogue is wildly uneven with an over-abundance of mutterings. The lettering is particularly flat.
Score: 5 out of 10
Comeback - Issue 1
This is an interesting concept, much like the successful recent film Looper. Contracted time travel to fix personal problems. The story has a lot of upside, even if there seems to be a lot of politics to navigate. The cover, and interior, are both stylish and clever in design. The coloring is a bit flat.
Score: 6.5 out of 10
Glory - Issue 30
This series is amazing. The artwork is, at points breathtaking and then ridiculous. It has such a unique style that really plays with the coloring. The coloring is one step above mono-chromatic and it isn't even noticeable. The art isn't the only thing great about this issue.
The story is awesome with the strangest fight you'll read in some time. And it ends so suddenly. And there is a new monkey-wrench revealed in the last page. Even the prologue, which dealt with Paris in the 1920s, was a perfect mixture of both wonderful and a sad.Continued on the next page
