Weekly Comic Reviews - 13 April 2016





Ratings out of 5 stars. Mainstream comics available at Absolute Comics (Plaza Singapura).   Wonder Woman: Earth One Volume One Story: Grant Morrison Art: Yanick Paquette DC This is Grant Morrison-lite as compared to The Nameless and The Multiversity, which is still sitting on a pile of books to be read. This has been in the works for years, way back in 2012. It was announced that Grant Morrison was going to put the sex back in WW, and back to the bondage and submission-is-good roots of the Marsten stories. This is also the book that made Greg Rucka quit DC back then because he was supposed to write the WW Earth One story and JH Williams III drawing it, but DC gave it to Morrison instead. Reading this book now, one wonders how Rucka would have handled the story because his run of the Amazon Princess from 2003 –...

Ratings out of 5 stars. Mainstream comics available at Absolute Comics (Plaza Singapura).   Old Man Logan #4 Story: Jeff Lemire Art: Andrea Sorrentino Marvel Old Man Logan was one of the best Wolverine stories for the last 10 years and Marvel finally got round to exploit it further during the Secret Wars. Mark Millar may be too busy to write for Marvel now, but that is not going to stop them from using his original ideas for Old Man Logan – basically an aged alternative version of Wolverine who is out of place in a corrupt future and how he tries to make right his current reality. Now Marvel has taken a step further by plucking Old Man Logan out of his universe and placing him in the present Marvel universe. He is confused and started slashing first before asking the questions. In this issue, he is finally stopped...

Ratings out of 5 stars. Mainstream comics courtesy of Absolute Comics (Plaza Singapura).   Patience Story/Art: Daniel Clowes Jonathan Cape The first all-new Dan Clowes story in over half a decade. Expectations are high here and I grab it from the shelves once it hit our shores. The story – love, regrets, and… time-traveling? 20pages into the story (total 178 pages), we jump to 2029 and things get really weird. It’s not quite what we expected. But what do we expect? More Ghost World, David Boring, The Death Ray, Ice Haven, Wilson and Mister Wonderful? You realized most of these stories were originally serialized in Eightball. So it’s time for Clowes to move on and tell whatever stories he want. Patience is it. And it is worth the wait. It’s weird, wacky and really life-affirming if you want it to be. Go buy!!! (4 stars) Back to the Future #6...

Ratings out of 5 stars. Mainstream comics courtesy of Absolute Comics (Plaza Singapura). Shipment only came in on Thursday this week. Through the Habitrails: Life Before and After My Career in the Cubicles Story/Art: Jeff Nicholson Dover One of the big comic news of last year was that Dover has entered the graphic novels market. What they did was to pick up titles that have gone out of print and reissued them. This has given many lost classics a fresh breathe of life. Through the Habitrails by Jeff Nicholson is one such seminal title. Jeff Nicholson is one of the pioneers of small press comics that no one has heard about. He started self-publishing in the early 1980s, drawing a parody of the Ulraman TV series called Ultra Klutz. He had enough bad experience in the small press that he did Jeff Nicholson’s Small Press Tirade (1989). The anger is...
