I'm Reading Comeeks

I dedicate this blog to comics in all forms, manga, autobio, superhero, art books, etc.  And of course, since I need a challenge, I've decided that I'll read and write (short) reviews for 365 comics during 2015.


Black Market - Frank Barbiere, Victor Santos

It's like meh, only worse.


Take one arrogant medical examiner who ends up working at a funeral home.  Add a criminal brother, the existence of superheroes and a race for power and money and the cure for all diseases.  All we need is a little super DNA.


For all that I was bored by the plot.  It was predictable.  The artwork also left me yawning.  I could not have cared less about the main character, even though his wife was dying of MS.  The story was more about the scientist's megalomania rather than his attempt to save his wife by delving into morally gray areas.  She barely figured into the comic, making the whole thing less than sympathetic.


A good concept, poorly rendered.
