Conan, Vol. 13: Queen of the Black Coast (2013)
language
English
4.05 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: For me, this volume is a few steps up in comparison with the previous volumes. Wood delivers a slightly softer, more human Conan. Although it's a typical Conan-story, near the last pages this story had me sitting on the edge of my seat, wondering how it would end. I'm not a b...
The Massive, Vol. 1: Black Pacific (2013)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Very smart and thought-provoking. Also one of the best post-apocalyptic futures I've ever seen. No single disaster, but rather a host of small ones all happening in close proximity have pushed civilization to the brink in some parts of the world. The crew of the Kapital are se...
Mara (2013)
language
English
3.35 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: The pacing was a little weird and it seemed like something that would've fit an ongoing series more than a miniseries, but it was still very much enjoyable. It's sort of a postmodern look at the super-human, and a thought experiment on how society processes and reacts to superhum...
DMZ, Vol. 12: The Five Nations of New York (2012)
language
English
series
4.18 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I look at other series and how they ended, and in the big scheme of things, this was middle of the road. The best is "Y: The Last Man," and there are others that beat it solidly as well (just can't think of them right now), but overall you are rewarded for your patience. It's a...
Local (2008)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I had read and loved this book dearly in high school, and it mostly holds up upon re-reading. A couple of the stories are a bit overwritten and Brian Wood too often substitutes musical taste for characterization, but Megan McKeenan is one of his finest characters and she holds do...
Northlanders, Vol. 5: Metal and Other Stories (2011)
language
English
series

review 1: Yet another strong entry in the Series by Brian Wood, who's obviously immensely talented. 3 stories in the 5th Volume, Girl in the Ice - about just that, a girl in the ice, and the old man who finds her; The Sea Road - about a ship captain who decides to strike out Westward into ...
Northlanders, Vol. 7: The Icelandic Trilogy (2013)
language
English
series
4.11 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: On the whole I have enjoyed The Northlanders series, but I found The Icelandic Trilogy lacking and failing to keep my interest. The art was good and evocative of the time and place. However, the characters just were not engaging and seemed only placeholders for telling the stor...
X-Men, Vol. 1: Primer (2013)
language
English
3.87 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This was fairly enjoyable. A lot of people really like that this is an all-female team, though there are almost always strong female characters in X-Men books, so that's not terribly important to me. I am glad that it just sort of happens that way, and other characters are involv...
The Massive Volume 1: Black Pacific (2013)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Brian Wood ROCKS at the top of his game and this series is deeply, thoroughly original. It looks like a straight-up disaster thriller except for /every single disaster/ you can get your head around has happened in it, AND he refers to contemporary disasters like the Deepwater Hor...

English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The crew of the Kapital are continuing their search for their sister ship The Massive, elusively sitting at the edge of their radar - if indeed it’s there at all - and encountering the new world order following the environmental, social and economic collapse that has so altered t...
DMZ, Vol. 11: Free States Rising (2012)
language
English
series
4.08 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The penultimate volume of the excellent DMZ-series "Free States Rising" offers a major climax for the saga. The series has depicted a decade in the life of free reporter Matty Roth who has been reporting from Manhattan which has turned into a demitilarized zone in a future Americ...
Northlanders, Vol. 3: Blood in the Snow (2010)
language
English
series
3.93 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Volume 3 of Northlanders is composed of a few short stories as opposed to one big narrative. Each of them is quite god with the standout for me being the "Shield Maidens". It's a story of 3 Danish women who escape their village that is being ransacked by vikings. They then nee...
Northlanders, Vol. 4: The Plague Widow (2010)
language
English
series
4.09 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Set in Viking Russia in A.D.1020, "The Plague Widow" examines a year in the life of a remote settlement under siege by a contagious outbreak. The residents of this village are so focused on shutting the outside world out, they don't think about who they're shutting themselves in ...

English
series
4.01 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is well done - hopefully Wood can carry through with the premise of "free elections" and the types of leaders they throw up and how they even get a look-in in the subsequesnt volumes.Again like Volume 4, Wood is able to bring home the genuine horrors of war and rebuilding so...

review 1: Volume 9, MIA, picks up with a series of short pieces about various people in the DMZ (Wilson, Zee, Kelly, Business Investors, Soames, the leader of the FSA, etc.). There's some very good stuff there, which does a great job of further expanding our knowledge of these people and t...
Northlanders, Vol. 6: Thor's Daughter (2012)
language
English
series
3.84 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Of the three stories that make up this collection, I am surprised that they chose the final story to draw the title (and therefore collection tone) from. "Thor's Daughter" tells the story of a chieftan's daughter who must step into his shoes after his death - a potentially very i...
The New York Five (2011)
language
English
series
3.4 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Having gotten this only because our monthly comic book club opted for it to be our February read, I didn't initially realize FIVE was a sequel to anything (I gather the recommending member didn't, either). Maybe if I'd read FOUR ahead of time I'd have enjoyed this one more; as i...

DMZ, Vol. 7: War Powers (2009)
language
English
series
4.04 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: I think the story is most compelling now that we have an over-arching plot, with Delgado now taking over as Mayor of the DMZ. The aside on Staten Island was okay. The last section from Zee was great, so good that it alone probably brought this up from 3 to 4 stars. I'm just findi...

review 1: The story is winding down as NYC is destined to become part of the US again. Seen from the viewpoint of several characters, the last week as the bombs drop is a beautiful story. Those that stick around, those that leave, those that just survive.Has Matty learned anything, is he...

review 1: Nice intro by Morgan Spurlock (they do get some good intros written for these collected volumes). There are 2 stories here: No Future is a self-contained 3-part story about an NYPD vet named Tony, who finds himself part of a death-cult of former emergency services/law forces work...

review 1: Vols 1 & 2 were both following 1 character entirely, however, this volume shifts, and we get a number of smaller (2 issue) stories. I kind of like the change of pace here. First, in "Lindisfarne", we read about a young Saxon boy and his cruel 'Christian' father, and a Viking inva...

review 1: I was hesitant about reading this one since I didn't much care for volume 2, but I liked the first one a lot, so I figured I should at least give it a chance. And I think this one falls right in between the two for me. This one consists of four different short stories, including ...

review 1: I really enjoyed the first arc of Brian Wood's Star Wars or as I would like to say, "The Badassification of Princess Leia". In the first chapter of this six-part story, Wood justifies why Leia is a leader of the Rebellion and not just a figurehead like her mentor Mon Motha. She t...

review 1: Have been reading a lot of Brian Wood recently (Demo Vol 1, Northlanders,DMZ etc) and this is what I have to say to anyone else who wants to dabble in this guy's works. Remember the neighbor hood book store / library before the computer archive search was invented ? Where the sto...

language
English
3.86 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Eerie and intrigueing, The Massive had me from the start. The dialog is spot on--limited in scope but deep in meaning, it feels real and nearly cinematic. The drawing is oddly pretty for an edge-of-your-seat adventure story in a decaying world, and I enjoyed the backgrounds and p...

review 1: A fresh and very tightly written series by Dark Horse; Wood is excellent! I hadn't read any Star Wars graphic novels before the 2013 Star Wars series and I am certainly glad I found this one! The twist at the end of issue #12 really took me for a ride too :)I was saddened to hea...
