Friday Comics Chat Open Thread

Well, here we go again! This is the part of the week where YOU speak up and tell us how it is!

What did you read this week? Was it good? Was it like sucking lemons? What was the best comic you read? What was the worst? Which did you read first and which did you save for last? Speak up! Batman wants to know!

The Bat-cycle has definitely seen better days!

Anyway, I was away since i got my books this week and I have only managed to read one title - Batman.

Let me just say that when I read that Jason Todd was coming back, I hated the idea, and I made sure that anyone who would listen to me complain knew it.

However, it really has been a pretty fantastic story! Winnick has really surprised me - his scripts have been interesting, exciting, and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny!

This new issue was no exception. As we get closer and closer to the release of Batman Annual #25 and the tale's conclusion, I find myself wishing it didn't have to be over.

I just finished the recent issue of Birds of Prey...Does Gordon have any clue that Batman is Bruce Wayne?

And as far as Jason Todd coming back is such a bad idea...if he does, I want my .95 cent back from DC Comics...I voted him "DEAD",,,"DEAD! I SAID..."

Ummmm... I read NOTHING YET this week, as I am still working on the JANUARY orders...

OK, so it's Monday now, but I'm curious about a book that's out there and I've been wondering if anyone has read it. Wired Magazine had a big article about Paup Pope and his upcoming Batman 100. But, I'm also interested in 100% that he apparently wrote and illustrated.

Anybody read it? Like it?

I figured this was a good posting to ask in.

Paul Pope's 100% was pretty darn cool if I remember correctly. But that's just it... I'm not sure anymore because it took a while for all the issues to come out. I also find Pope's artwork hard to follow some times, and I'm a trained professional. He definitely has talent, but maybe his stuff just doesn't grab me. Again, I'm not sure because his appearances are so sporadic. I'm very curious about his Batman, and so apparently is our subscription base, as quite a few of you have signed up for it. We shall see.

The art they featured in Wired reminded me of brush work like Muzzichelli (sp??) combined with a sort of surrealist approach to the figures. They almost resemble characters from Aeon Flux.

Just seemed like a cool style.

Yeah, his stuff is a bit like Mazzuchelli(sp?)... his shapes and porportions get all wonky sometime and I find it hard to make out characters' expressions... again, an interesting style all his own, but it doesn't grab me like som of the other "avant-garde"-type artists...

Oh, and we can get you the 100% trade paperback, if you need it, stymieresh... I was flipping through it at the store tonight, and I realized I may have never finished reading the story!
