GO ASK ALEX

These are the books that I read today, and some lame capsule reviews.

WALKING DEAD 23
Tough guys beat the shit out of each other. They talk about events I forgot. I long for zombies to eat them. I flip through the pages faster and faster.

LOCAL 1
Nice little character study, with lovely art and a well executed structure. The art is Paul Pope lite with zip-a-tone, and that ain't a bad thing. I really like the main character, and this looks to be a fun road trip of a series.

DMZ 1
Scarily believable. Terrific art and a cool premise. Again, looking forward to where it goes.

ESCAPIST 8
The Escapist books are usually pretty fun, and the talent that they get to work on them is impressive, but I always finish reading them with a shrug and never really remember what happened. It's like smoking bad hash. Pretty art and stories that make me turn the page, but when it's all said and done, I can't say that I pooped myself or anything. (The last time I read a Philip Bond story it was VIMANARAMA and I DID poop myslef, so my standards are pretty high.)

INFINITE CRISIS 2
Glutton for punishment or bored on a rainy day? Both, I guess. This is a big weird aimless mess, with WAY WAY WAY too much backstory exposition for my taste. Can't we just assume that anyone reading this already knows the entire fucking history of the DCU, and stop with the boring-ass crisis re-caps? And what's up with Power Girl's saggy tits? I mean, come on!

STUFF I LOOKED AT OR FLIPPED THROUGH OR WHATEVER

DANGER GIRL: BACK IN BLACK
I'll admit it; DANGER GIRL is pretty fun, and that Campbell guy, despite the hype, still draws some good comics. This has a cheesecake cover, which I can support, and some cheesecake insides, which I can support, but the story just never grabbed me. I'll probably give it another shake. I'm sure it will be entertaining, in a THREE'S COMPANY kinda way.

ULTIMATE CASPER
Ohhhhh yeah. That's the stuff. Save that for later. Spooky? Wendy? Hell yes.

GOTHAM CENTRAL
Blah blah blah blah. That's what I saw when I flipped through. Not really a fair review, but I swear I could care less about these characters in this situation. This book runs more hot and cold than any book I've ever read. When it's good, it makes my head explode like a sniper hollow tip. When it's lame (see: any Montoya story... ever.), I black out from boredom and somehow end up in Omaha with no shoes. THAT'S bored, my friends.

My pick this week? Either DMZ or LOCAL. Or CASPER for sure. Harvey books rule with an iron fist.

I preordered that Casper book. I should get it with my next shipment. There's a Hot stuff book solicited this month.

I have to agree on walking dead. It started strong but by issue 12 it was just putting me to sleep. Page after page of uninteresting dialogue and bland talking heads and then ZOMBIEEEEE!!!!

It's like eating sugarless oatmeal that occasionally screams bloody murder.

Or something like that.
