"The fun for me is seeing these characters, who are very grounded and very realistic kids, and then have these insane things starting to happen, and then having them be able to react to it the way maybe a normal teenager would, as opposed to a teenager who's grown up in 50 years of superheroes flying around them." - Jeff Lemire

The best way to describe Red One is "a sexy mess".

I tried to do a little summary for the premise, where the Cold War era Russians (but not the Cold War era Russians that we would recognise) send an agent to America (characterised by a schism between "family values", of homophobia and prudishness, and a free love agenda) to win a cultural war by becoming a superhero and cultural icon while also fighting with a hammer (which she throws at a bullet, stopping it) and sickle, and there was a porn film involved, and a "moral crusader" who was styled as an unkillable Amish called The Carpenter and, it takes place with SALT in the background and... it's nonsense.

But nonsense doesn't have to mean the same as bad.

But, it's secured the art team of the Dodsons, and that means that everybody looks lovely.

I've picked out a four page sequence from #4 where Red One decides to go out and be superheroic, like her handlers wanted (sort of. even that bit flip flops around).

tw for the beginning of a rape scene )

So, that's Red One being a bit too extreme and direct, and that's even before her very brief stint as a fluffer.

There are two distinct stories in this arc. The first has Leia, accompanied by smuggler Sana Starros, dropping vader's sidekick, the recently captured Dr Aphra, off at Sunspot Prison, the Rebellion's most secret pentientiary, where she can be kept until trial. And then there's a rather unusual prison break.... kinda

The second has Luke and Han going on what SHOULD have been a simple supplies run, but Han gambles and loses the money they were going to use to buy everything, leaving them flat broke in a dodgy neighbourhood.


An interesting ethical dilemma )

And we discover that a certain insult in 'Empire' might have a grain of truth to it )

Star Wars: Princess Leia by Mark Waid and the Dodsons is pretty good. It has the same sort of tone and fits in with the world of the books while Leia remains Leia.

When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire, she never betrayed her convictions - even after the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, Leia grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire - the destruction of the Death Star! But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains... what is a princess without a world? As Leia comes to grips with her loss, a new mission leads her to the underground world of Sullust.

The series starts straight after the medal ceremony at the end of A New Hope

In 2004 Marvel released a Spider-Man title under the 'Marvel Knights' imprint. The basic idea was to make a more "hard PG-13" Spider-Man title with Mark Millar and Terry Dodson delivering a 12 issue arc in three parts. There's no official title for the whole thing but it's been called "Shush" by the fans given the obvious similarities to 'Hush' that was running around the same time; an "epic" about a mystery villain causing havoc that happens to involve the majority of the hero's rogue gallery.

FWIW, while both are a lot of 'style over substance', I enjoyed "Shush" a lot more. You may think differently.

For those on the fence, the Daredevil Comixology Sale ends tonight at 11 pm EST.

Also as you probably know the new Netflix show stars tomorrow. I would like to ask that people refrain from discussing spoilers in the comments for these posts just for the benefit of those trying to catch up.
