God Of Comics
Welcome to a brand spanking new thing we’re doing here on Living Myth Media. See, we’re old school comics geeks. And every week, we go and get comics (single issues mostly online, trades mostly from conventions or Big Pete’s). And every Wednesday we respect Woden, the God of Comics, and we speak of the stories that he, in his greatness, has brought us on twitter.
That’s a preview, though, and there’s time we don’t pick up the things we were looking for or end up picking up things we didn’t talk about on twitter. So, here’s what comics we got this week and what we think about ’em after we the reading.
We rate these things on a five star scale. The first two stars are for art, the second two for story, and the last is based on whether we think this is a gateway comic – is this something we would lend to friends to get them into this series? This is a tricky thing, but if we think it is, then the comic gets this star.
Stars can be broken down into quarters. Two or three stars is an average comic. Anything at four or more stars is of the highest possible quality.
Everyone with us so far? Cool. Onwards goes us.
