I wanted to give the DC relaunch a chance. I really did. But between the silly costumes, the gratuitous violence, the demeaning character portrayals, and (in my opinion) some pretty mediocre storytelling choices, I think I have to give it a pass.
(Marvel isn't much better, but that's a rant for another day).
I'm not giving up on comics, however. There are three titles out there that I follow religiously:
The first is GOLD DIGGER
. One man writing and drawing the book, without any fill-ins for 20 years.
And while it may look like a cheesecake book at first glance, consider that the three major protagonists are all female, and have been since the beginning.
The second? ATOMIC ROBO
. Because they get it. Comics are supposed to be fun
. And Robo is fun, without being childish or "wacky".
And the last is a book I discovered only recently, and have posted about before:WITCH DOCTOR
. And, amusingly enough, these two panels from the latest issue pretty much sum up my feelings about "mainstream" comics.( Cut for size... )
