Cowabunga, Dudes and Dudettes! Your mega-pal, Chocochuy, reporting for some most radical and bodacious duty!

Dudes, I am so hyped up that I wanna share mein joy with y`all! As usual, I was surfing the comic book store as the über-wicked cool Ninja Commando that I am when I found the awesomest comic book from all the bodacious omniverse. It was like mixing the Sega Genesis with the Super-Nintendo but 11 times more awesome. Mine eyez sure had one helluva pimpin` ecstasy ride as I stared at the new cornerstone of awesomeness with a filling of much more awesomeness and a covering of chocolate (I mean, why not?). Now, don`t you just take my word on it and let`s bone out to enjoy the sheer badassery that is Spawn.

Here's the last issue of the ANGELA three-issue series that Neil Gaiman penned, about the character from SPAWN.

We should agree as angels do above."

Continuing the look through the sub-par stories Alan Moore produced during his mid-90s slump...
***
You've seen the rest*, now see the worst.

This.. I'm not sure how to describe this mini-series. I really wanted to like it. Moore's run on the WildCATs series proper, which I'd read before this, is genuinely good stuff, so I know he the ability to turn out good stories using these characters. However, I ended up really disappointed. This story isn't just bad by Moore standards. It's bad by anyone's standards, and mind-bogglingly so. Normally, even when a Moore story is bad, it's still original or distinct. Whatever else, he's never generic. A voice always shows through. This series, in contrast, is the very definition of generic.

There are plenty of Alan Moore work I've never read, but even so, I'd feel pretty safe betting that this is the worst thing he's ever written professionally. I mean, this is the sort of thing where, if it was written by a new writer, you'd do your hardest to avoid any future works by the guy because there is so little skill apparent here that you'd be positive the person's a lost cause. It's almost comforting in its way: The knowledge that Moore is really is just as capable as anyone else of scripting utterly uninspired schlock B-movie dialogue on an off day.

*Well, I skipped the Fire From Heaven crossover because I'd forgotten about it and didn't remember until I'd already begun composing this entry.

The 90s has a rep as a bad time for mainstream comics, and rightfully so. It was some terrible black hole of awfulness, sucking even normally decent writers into its depths. It was almost as if anything produced in the 90s (yeah, yeah, there were a couple of exceptions) would automatically suck, simply because it was 90s, and if a comic was made in the 90s, it was going to be terrible. Because it was the 90s.

Even Alan Moore managed to be complete crap in the 90s (though he recovered towards the tail end of that decade). Some of his work during this period is really appallingly bad. As evidence, I present to you the two-lane pile-up in mini-series form that is Spawn: Blood Feud.
