Unscripted: Joe The Barbarian #3
I'm really, really, REALLY liking the series. Once you understand that Grant Morrison has to be taken "as a whole" (that is, not issue by issue, but seeing the big picture and taking into account all the possible intertexts, like a sort of T.S. Eliot), he's a great read. Things are starting to... make sense? Sorta, kinda. "Some" things are more or less explained, especially the hallucinations. The plot twist at the end is really exciting. What will happen in #4? I think NOW is when the "real" story begins.
The art, as you guys said, is a-ma-zing. It really goes with the story Grant is telling. I completely agree with Babs, a solid 5/5. Although G-Man has a good point: this story will be better read in a trade, or at least, once we reach #8. As a whole.
PS: Babs the Barbarian? :P
I like the book but I seriously have no idea what is going on in most of the issues. I'm still going to keep reading it though I'm interested to see how it ends. Curse you Vertigo with your initial one dollar price that draws me in lol. Honestly though I read it when it comes out but it usually isn't on the top of my pile, and I don't think it is as good as Daytripper if you are looking at the new Vertigo books.
I have to say, out of all the comics I' reading at this point, Joe the Barbarian is favorite! When this issue came out I re-read them all together and I was just so emerged in this story. The dialogue just roles off your tongue, I found it easy to apply different voices to each character; and the art, OH THE ART! 5 out of 5!
P.S- Babs you are lookin TOO GOOD! OOOHHHWEEE!
