phoning it in now.
to touch on the more sordid stories of Tom Baker last week,
this week it's a more famous one, made popular by gossip mailing
while doing a bit of work at a drama college takes a liking
to a certain student, as does she to he. Finding a window
of opportunity, they get up to a spot of naughtiness. As the
filthery is about to commence, he exclaims in a booming voice,
putting it in now."
go and rewatch Genesis Of The Daleks with that on your mind
There have been some seriously good comic books published
over the last week. And one seriously bad one. Still let's
leave that to the end and concentrate on the good.
Monster in my pancreas?
Tech, a new graphic novel by Earthworm Jim creator Doug Nepal
and published by Top Shelf. It's a high concept kind of story,
set around a scientific research lab into the weird and unexplained,
all stacked in handy crates, ready and numbered. The scientist's
dad used to run the place but found religion, while his son
lost it. It involves demons, ghosts, aliens, symbiotes and
the Shroud of Turin. Artistically reminiscent of Kyle Baker
this is a storming action/adventure, dazzlingly told and addictively
Fingers by Rich Kolowski also from Top Shelf gains major negative
points by misusing the medium. Comics does not suit the way
this story is told and this makes for a frustrating read.
But then Kolowski injects it with some dazzlingly good ideas,
the one that forms the title of the book is mind-bendingly
good. And you wait and see what happens to Daffy Duck…
Cheers of a clown
Clown 4 by Roger Langridge from Hotel Fred Press contains
more goodness than a hardback graphic novel 12 times its size,
A change of pace leads Roger to tell a haunting, poignant
tale that eschews straight gags for comic timing and unnerving
storytelling. It works too. And then, for all those long time
Fred fans, he puts more gags into the last few strips at the
end than you usually find in a whole issue. Funny, non-continuity
and worth every penny.
