Triseult reviewed Void Trip #1 Nov 25, 2017
5.0

The story of "Void Trip" is basically of two outlaw junkies on the run from the law, except that it's in SPAAAACE so you can enjoy some original art. Besides the gorgeous art, though, there's nothing very original or likable about this issue.

Void Trip #1

"Wile E. Coyote hires Lobo to take out Road Runner." Sounds hilarious, right? Well, whatever story you just thought of in your head is better than this sad excuse for a comic book. The conceit by which the Looney Tunes characters are brought into the DC Universe is stupid and unnecessary, and the ensuing events are just... Meh.



So no, Lobo does NOT travel through a portal to the more

Big meh. Sure, the previous series was a hard act to follow, but this is definitely NOT on par with Kieron Gillen's stuff. While Gillen's Darth Vader felt like the real deal, this one here just feels like a fanfic copy. What Gillen did brilliantly was constantly let us guess at Vader's mindset before defying moments of redemption by showing Vader's acceptance of his darker nature. This issue did n more

Continues the excellence of the first issue. The world gets fleshed out a little bit more, but it's the details in the prose sections that really hook me in, including all the stuff about thieves operating out of the dark web. Can't wait to see where this is all headed in the final issue.

Fantastic first issue. The comic alternates between sketchy, dreamy serial art and drawn-out prose that may seem meandering at first, but eventually coalesces into something poignant and powerful. Not a lot of the world is established there, but the mood is palpable, and the flawed protagonist is instantly interesting.

Yeah no. I'm all for biting political satire, but this issue just felt like exploitative pulp. Lots of violence I didn't care about, and a rambling style that just didn't connect. Then again, I should have known from the title and cover.

I'm really digging this series. It's such a cool what-if, but it's happening in an actual series, which means it goes much, much more in depth into the motivations and character of Doom. Not being a fan of the Fantastic Four I never gave a second thought about Doctor Doom, but man is he a cool, complex character. I love the fact he's both a Stark-level scientific genius AND nearly as powerful as D more

Triseult reviewed Old Man Logan #24 Jun 5, 2017
6.5

This storyline has been receiving a lot of praise, but I dunno. The concept was great on paper, but in the end it wasn't much more than the comic equivalent of a clip show. And although the last issue offered something fresh, it was mostly the good old trope of Logan shedding his cynicism to start believing again, only to have it pulled away from him in a cruel twist of fate.

As earth-shattering as the premise of this event is, there's not that much going on. All of it just feels like an alternate reality (Elseworlds?), which is not helped by talk of cosmic cubes that will invariably play a role in solving the event by hitting the big-reset button -- assuredly minus one earth-shattering thing that'll get retconned one year down the line or so when the editors can no lo more
