Reviews archive and statement


I will post reviews on the main page on a more or less weekly basis.  More if there are enough interesting things to read.

When I get around to it and they are getting a little farther into the pile, and finding them is a chore, they will be archived at the bottom of this page.  Starting with the newest and going back from there.

I will try to keep the mix as varied as my budget will allow.  I hope to be able to provide any pertinent purchase info without putting in links (amazon does not need my help) and it is always better to support you local shops if you can.

The goal will not be to spoil the book, in fact I will stick to a strict NO SPOILERS policy unless they are vital to a review, and then I will give an ample warning.  No, the goal is to tell you what the book is about and who is likely to enjoy it most.  Warning of content will be provided as needed, but my assumption will always be that you are an adult capable of making your own choices.  I will just provide information to assist in that choice.

Another goal here will be to not be the “worst kind of fan”.  You know the one.  He is the guy that went to see the latest Star Trek film 7 times so he could complain about it to every person he took.  He is the one that says George Lucas is evil or whatever, while complaining that everything since Episode VI was crap.  The person that clearly does not love the medium, just being a fan so he can gripe about how is was so much better when…!  I like comics.  There will be, and very often is, stuff I don’t like.  There is much more out there I would rather not bother with than stuff I would recommend.  But you will not see that kind of mindless complaining here.  If someone posts that kind of thing here, I will likely delete it or edit it down.  I encourage opinions and actively seek feedback.  But if you are just negative because you are that kind of person, go to the Bendis boards or one of the many thousands of places that cater to you.  This is not one of those.  If I or anyone who might post a comment here has something negative to say, great, but it better be backed up by something other than “because it sucks” type arguments.  OK, end of rant.

I encourage anyone to leave feedback and even reviews of their own.

If there is something you would like reviewed, please feel free to let me know.

And now the back archive…
