Review: "Sheltered Volume One"

Review: "Sheltered Volume One" | i Is for Image | Scoop.it
"You have to die so that we can live." So says Lucas, a teenager from a survivalist compound that goes by the name of Safe Haven, before he coldly shoots his father execution-style in the head. "Sh...
Image Comics's insight:

Brisson has written a suspenseful thriller within a cautionary tale within a Shakespearean tale. Some of the kids have doubts about their leader, Lucas. There are double crossings, lies fabricated, and obfuscation throughout the proceedings committed by all characters involved. Brisson’s story may be a slow burn, but this only aids in the suspense and mystery that Brisson and Christmas are delicately building. The reader, within these first five issues, comes to care about (as well as loathe) characters whose pasts haven’t been fleshed out just yet. Minimalism of story is something that can be done exceptionally well in the comic book medium, but only if the artistic collaborators are up to the task of expressing the writer’s vision. Both Christmas and colorist Shari Chankhamma are outstanding and are able to convey emotion through small moments as well as violent ones, and realistic (and sometimes clever) dialogue that is supplied to them by Brisson.

Is It Good? Noah Review

Is It Good? Noah Review | i Is for Image | Scoop.it
See all reviews of Noah (1)Like animals trying to get into the ark, a procession of couples will be turning up at cinemas to watch the first big blockbuster of the year 2014 on March 28th. Noah, directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Russell Crowe, hits theaters next week in all its animal loving, doomsday […]
Image Comics's insight:

Clocking in at 256 pages this is an epic graphic novel. The book is masterful in its pacing and clarity, always giving itself time to showcase atmosphere and content over cheap action or exposition. In a sense this is the ideal version of Noah, at least if it were shot from this script, as there’s no time constraints or physical aspects like weather or grumbling actors to muck things up.

Rat Queens Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery Review » Comic Book Blog | Talking Comics

Rat Queens Vol. 1: Sass & Sorcery Review » Comic Book Blog | Talking Comics | i Is for Image | Scoop.it
Stephanie reviews the first volume of Kurtis Wiebe and Roc Upchurch's series, Rat Queens.
Image Comics's insight:

"Rat Queens could easily have come across as a series that’s trying to capitalize on a market largely ignored by the big two, but it’s so incredibly far from that. Rat Queens is a well-written and beautifully drawn book about a badass elf, goblin, dwarf and a druid that make up a team of drunk, dysfunctional mercenaries. The characters have a distinct personalities and a unique looks to them, each coming in different sizes and shapes. It isn’t a book about kick-ass female mercenaries but instead it’s a book about kick-ass mercenaries that happen to be female."

Review: Jupiter's Legacy #4 - Comic Book Resources

Review: Jupiter's Legacy #4 - Comic Book Resources | i Is for Image | Scoop.it
Comic Book Resources - REVIEW: Jupiter's Legacy #4 - Mark Millar and Frank Quitely's Jupiter's Legacy #4 jumps ahead several years after last issue's events, juxtaposing this darker future with a much brighter origin flashback, while intriguingly analyzing superheroes in the moder
Image Comics's insight:

"Jupiter's Legacy" #4 finds something plenty worthwhile to wring out of the traditional superhero idea, and does so by dealing with the very questions brought forth by the notion of conventional superheroics in the modern day. Using the fundamentals of the genre, Millar rearranges them to make something truly fresh.

Pretty Deadly #3 Review - IGN

Pretty Deadly #3 Review - IGN | i Is for Image | Scoop.it
Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios dig deeper into the origins of their characters.
Image Comics's insight:

The cycles of life, death, loss, and discovery are played out through this spectral assortment of damaged souls, and the book’s visuals capture that sense of ephemeral doom. Rios’ art conjures a delicate sort of beauty from darkness both literal and metaphorical, while Jordie Bellaire’s colors bestow even the bloodiest of events with a vicious, violent elegance. It’s rare to see the type of ambition behind a book such as this so artfully executed, but the creators behind Pretty Deadly have concocted an epic that demands to be read.

Millar is at his best when he embraces a lighter, fun-loving quality in his work, and that sense of whimsy makes Starlight #1 (Image) the writer’s strongest debut in years.
