American McGee's Grimm #1

Feb 22, 2009

It also has a perfect place within the artistic zeitgeist as metafiction, cultural adaptation, and fictional revisionism have made a huge impact both critically and commercially (as it looks now, the favorite to win the Best Picture Oscar tonight is an Indian take on Charles Dickens). The hunger for it is only going to grow as increasingly globalized and sophisticated readers become more comfortable with the idea that the old tropes and narratives are no longer sufficient and need to be revised because they work better when they are more attuned to issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, culture, religion, and whatever other categories of identity will doubtlessly be added to this list.

R.E.B.E.L.S. #1

Feb 16, 2009

The writing is not good enough and the excellent art is wasted on a project that prioritizes a completely different set of things. While there are great comics in the future for Andy Clarke, the next issue of this book will not be one of them. Don't buy it.
