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.

Deviations and Destinations

Deviations - Kelly Thompson, Paul Allor, Tom Waltz, Brandon Easton, Amy Chu Abe Sapien Volume 7: The Secret Fire - Mike Mignola, Scott Allie

Deviations - Kelly Thompson:


Have you ever wondered what would have happened if Fox had better protected his little sister and been abducted in her place?  What about if the Ghostbusters hadn't crossed the streams allowing Gozer (in Stay-puft form) to rule the world?  What about if the Teenaged Mutant Turtles all got brainwashed to work for Shredder?


Read those stories and more in Deviations!  I found the Ghostbusters deviation the most amusing, especially since I'm not as familiar with some of the others, like TMNT, GI Joe and Transformers, but it's worth a look for fans!


Abe Sapien Vol. 7 The Secret Fire - Michael Mignola:


Oh Abe.  You've been told by various people, over and over, again to go back to your team and yet you doggedly kept pursuing the truth further and further from it.  Finally in this volume a girl, speaking in an ancient language, convinces him to return.  


It's not that I haven't enjoyed Abe's adventures and the various characters he has met through his wanderings, and the creatures he's fought along the way...but I felt like the story was in stasis, neither Abe nor us readers was moving forward in the plot.


Here's hoping that we'll all be getting some answers in the next volume.
