Recreating my reviews list which could no longer be reordered once I had more than 99 titles in it. Tits.

    East of West may stand alone in the novelty of both its art and its writing. Both are tempered with enough realism to keep the medium plausible while continuously stoking the imagination in new and creative ways. Following the four horsemen through a post-apocalyptic world that is remarkably realized in its grandeur and destitution, this book is a legitimate gem.

    A groundbreakingly gorgeous series. Putting some new spin on a tried and true premise gives this book permission to really push the boundaries of Remender's imagination. Scalera's art is apt and extraordinary, making Black Science one of the most surprising and fun titles in publication.

    A very well-thought-out story with a dedicated science fiction bent. Letter 44 examines the ramifications of contact with a seemingly militant extra-terrestrial species upon our political discourse and throws in a dash of next generation weapons technology.

    Crain's artwork here is stunning, with every panel rendered a digital painting with exceptional detial. Naturally, Kindt's narrative is expansive and original while seamlessly interweaving with other facets of the Valiant universe. Rai may well be our best ambassador for the future of the comic book genre.

    What can be said about Kick Ass that hasn't been already? One of the most creative ideas and freshest perspectives for a comic that we're likely to come across. I am pacing myself through this series because every issue is sheer delight and I want to soak up every second.

    Anything Kindt writes is worth reading. Here, the author manages to to stretch the parameters of the comic book as art form. Unique in many ways, Mind MGMT treats the reader to several different storylines, often at once. Kindt's art transcends the status quo of the genre and invites us into something more personal and secret. Mind MGMT evades typical description and is truly in a league of its own.

    Fantastic writing; gritty. First comic I've seen in a while whose art demands you spend time with it as it tells as much of the story as the dialogue. Outstanding work.

  • Last issue read: #3

    Wow. Remender proves himself again and we see his continued maturity as a writer moving from the somewhat scattered (though always entertaining) Fear Agent to Black Science and now this title. Set in an underwater society with a looming apocalypse, Remender really stretches the parameters of the storyline expertly as he details the world he creates while maintaining very tangible character development and arc. With art that, quite literally, stokes the imagination in equal measure to the story, this is one book you do not want to miss.

    Very much digging this. Along for the ride.

    Unbelievably good.

    THIS is a great comic. Unique storyline and art that leaves you on the edge of the seat. Read it.

    Starting to take shape as the Valiant Universe prepares itself for crossover. First couple issues left me unimpressed, but this book is beginning to pick up steam and dimension with the introduction of new characters such as The Bleeding Monk.

    Wow. Fantastic background for a storyline, and I've eaten the first few issues of this title right up. I have to admit that I am a bit concerned that it may be going stale with the main character's return to earth and the alien plot to eviscerate the planet. I'm hoping the writers behind this so far well-thought-out tale will decline to lean on industry standbys in favor of more creative fare. This one has kept me turning the pages thus far.

    Hoooooooly shit, if the rest of these issues are as good as #1, this is going to be a fantastic title.

  • Last issue read: #13

    As excellent as everyone says; totally deserving of the awards it's won and the accolades it receives. Difficult to put my finger on what I like about the book, it's just new and satisfying.

    Still trying to decide if this is a YA title. Several issues in, it's definitely starting to take shape in interesting ways. While borrowing from the Lord of the Flies trope, the writers manage some novel and creative scenarios, as well. Enjoyable.

    Holy. Shit.

    Very, very good.

    I traced Remender backwards here (how appropriate) from Black Science and am enjoying this book almost as much. Scalera's artwork in Science is the difference-maker.

    Almost as enjoyable as Kick Ass. Almost.

    A truly great story with depth and mystery not often realized in a comic. Can't wait to start Head Games.

  • Last issue read: #3

    I found the first issue relatively shallow and relatively unimaginative but three issues in, I am becoming interested. The storyline can be a bit dense and challenging to follow but that may be part of the hook.

    Not incredibly impressed with the first arc, although the series does have several redeeming qualities. It's growing on me.

  • Last issue read: #5

    I am generally turned off by black-and-white comics, but this book compensates with a well fleshed-out story, characters, and background. I didn't expect to be hooked.

    I simply love this comic - it covers all the bases that I look for and then some. Outstanding and graphic art by Upchurch with a fantastic and intelligently humorous storyline. Might just have it all.

    Update: Not entirely pleased with the abrupt dismissal of Upchurch and the subsequent delays to issue #9. The new artist is talented, but not on Upchurch's level, who was responsible for more than his share of this comic's appeal.

    Fun little yarn about apocalyptic matriarchy. Picks up speed as you go along.

    I'm enjoying it.

    Can't wait to sink into this one.

  • Last issue read: #7

    Always a good read but I'm not a fan of the non-serial aspect of the writing. Continuity of the community that the writers have built would suit this comic tremendously well.

    Potential but unrealized. Waiting to see here.

    Picked this one up because Clayton Crain deserves awards. Let see if I can fall back in love with the X-universe.

    I am not the biggest Marvel fan in the first place, but I get the impression I'm not as impressed with this series as I'm supposed to be after seeing it on so many "Greatest of" lists. Jury's still out until I digest the next few issues.

    Good premise, but something about this book rubs me the wrong way. It's taking shape after a few issues but I am usually left wanting more from it.

  • Last issue read: #2

    Kind of a trope review. I wasn't wowed. We'll see what the next few issues bring.

    Update: Plugging this in, I see there are several other Tech Jacket series. Maybe one of those what what I heard good things about.

  • Last issue read: #1

    Another title that pushes the envelope of imagination seemingly without regard for plausible conception. I'm never quick to grab a second issue of a title that leaves me with that what-the-fuck taste in my mouth. I may get around to it.

    Some day.

    Completely off the deep end; the re-op of this series is what happens when you allow a writer to explore without bound. The problem it creates is relatively implausible contexts for the reader, who is kindly paying $3 an issue to be entertained. Buyer beware.
