A review of Sea of Sorrows #1–2

This is a quick review because there’s not a lot to say about the book. It’s one of the first random books I bought off the rack last year once I resolved to review comics again. I don’t check any preview sites because I like as few spoilers as possible. Besides, a book like this already wears it’s premise on its sleeve. I took my time with writing about the book partly because real world events kept me distracted, but also the book bothered me a little. Willing to admit the problem is me, but hear me out.

Writer Rich Doek’s premise is straightforward. There’s a shipment of gold at the bottom of the ocean in a downed German submarine from World War One. A German (proto-Nazi at best, so he can live for now ) is looking to retrieve it with a ship captain and his crew, complete with an expert diver who’s also a shell-shocked war vet. The diver finds the gold and also sees this mermaid like creature. The horror picks up from there at a nice pace all the way to and through the second issue. …

Dark Knights: Death Metal #7 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo


U.S. Agent Issues #1–2

John Walker, aka U.S. Agent, was created in the 80’s. First he was Superpatriot, a Reganesque counterpart to Marvel’s Captain America who took over for the Captain in a controversial storyline that had at least one dear friend of mine drop the series for good out of disgust. Walker didn’t perform or cope well at all, and he gave up the shield little over a year later. Without writer and co-creator Mark Guenwald guiding the character, U.S. Agent since has mostly been a whipping boy and punchline for both the writers and audience over the last three decades. That might change with the new limited series by writer Priest and artists Georges Jeanty and Karl Story. …

We‘re almost to the end of 2020, which is more than over a quarter-million of COVID-19 victims can say. The slight majority of America have hopefully realized what happens when you elect a wealthy celebrity businessman with money into an elected office. We get a person who doesn’t know what he’s doing and doesn’t care. So they do what they naturally do, which is capitalize on their position to benefit themselves and other business partners (but mostly themselves). And if unhindered enough, they can cause near-irreversible damage to everyone around them. …

A look at Garth Ennis’ The Boys: Dear Becky #1–5

It’s both a good and bad time to be Garth Ennis. His comic strip series The Boys is being adapted to a TV series on Amazon. That hopefully means money for him and co-creator Darick Robertson. On the other hand, most people who first knew it as a comic agree it’s watered down. I haven’t seen it yet, but given the content of the comic series (including the rape and cannibalization of infants), how could it not be? This recently caused people on my Twitter feed to revisit the original stories, and they weren’t being remembered fondly. On top of that, The Boys is published by Dynamite, a comic book company found that got involved with the trolls behind the Comicsgate movement. Now Ennis’ return to the property with the limited series The Boys: Dear Becky is getting panned online. …
