Fairest: In All the Land Graphic Novel Review

Fairest: In All the LandErica Gives This Comic Four StarsFairest: In All the Land by Bill Willingham
Art: Chrissie Zullo, Karl Kerschl, Renae de Liz, Fiona Meng, Mark Buckingham, Phil Noto, Meghan Hetrick, Russ Braun, Tony Akins, Gene Ha, Tula Lotay, Marley Zarcone, Ming Doyle, Chris Sprouse, Nimit Malavia, Dean Ormston, Kurt Huggins, Adam Hughes, Al Davison, Shawn McManus, Inaki Miranda, and Kevin Maguire

This was perhaps one of the best Fables stories that I’ve read in a long time. It wasn’t interrupted by one of Willingham’s favorite characters that didn’t make sense. Cinderella had the whole narrative from beginning to end, and while she certainly had the help of others, she was the one who figured out the mystery and came up with a solution to the problem.

As much as I was excited to see that many of my favorite artists were working on this book, having the tale jump from artist to artist was a bit distracting. I really loved de Liz’s Cinderella and Hetrick’s Snow White. I was also surprised just how much I enjoyed Doyle’s art, which particularly worked with the ’60s flashback to Briar Rose’s all-girl band.

All that said, I did have a hard time getting into this book. Continue reading

Stumptown Vol 2: The Case of the Baby in the Velvet Case Graphic Novel Review

Stumptown Vol 2: The Case of the Baby in the Velvet CaseErica gives this comic five starsStumptown: The Case of the Baby in the Velvet Case by Greg Rucka
Art: Matthew Southworth

Once again, Rucka and Southworth created a tale that showed off Portland. The city itself is as much a character as Dex, David Mayes, and Mim Bracca. Southworth brings out this gritty postcard view, and I love looking at it and recognizing all the places.

Love that Dex finally got her own office, and it’s in a pretty nifty location. Though she definitely needs a car.

Jumping over the Burnside Bridge was definitely my favorite part of this book. I kind of enjoyed how generic our bad guy thugs in the car chase were. Not every single case can be super personal.

I also enjoyed how the book wasn’t entirely about Hector Marenco. Continue reading

FF #16 Comic Book Review

FF #16Erica gives this comic three starsFF #16 by Lee Allred and Matt Fraction
Art: Michael Allred

So I was pretty let down by this entire issue as the final one. It made me kind of sad considering that I’ve found this entire series to be pretty fabulous. Instead, the writing seemed to overwhelm the art…in mass. This is a case of how quantity does not make quality. Lee Allred was just too wordy. In fact, it reminded me a lot of the Stan Lee ’60s school of comic book writing. Something that I’d hoped died out by the ’90s.

I found the text so dense to get through that this double issue too me too long to read. Too long in that I noticed how long it took me to read, not that a single issue of a comic book should only be a certain length or take a certain amount of time to read.

I was happy to see that Darla, Medusa, and She-Hulk weren’t really knocked out. Instead, they were able to get back into the action, and their incapacitation served as a decoy.

The Watcher explaining the Pym Particles and how Scott discovered they are more than just size and strength was hella boring and tedious. It slowed down the book. And I didn’t care what happened to Doom. Continue reading
