Queen and Country: The Last Run (2010)
language
English
4.04 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: The story begins with Tara Chace flat on her back and wondering if she can get up. And she realizes the moment has come. It's time to turn in her sniper's rifle and ride a desk. She has a five-year old daughter who needs her to come home at night, not be halfway around the world,...

review 1: By this book, I didn't want this series to end. Chace is still amazing and still grips your heart, but the other characters really shined in this book too. Like everything else by Rucka, the honest respect he writes every character on the page is apparent, even if that character ...

review 1: I really enjoy Greg Rucka's spy adventure series Queen & Country, first in comics from Oni Press with some wonderful artist collaborators, then in novels like this one, the third to appear featuring Tara Chace. Rucka excels in portraying tough female protagonists. In this install...

review 1: Maybe 3.5, maybe. Kate Kane, former military cadet (she refused to lie about being gay so she was discharged—though they'll probably have to retcon that eventually) turned crimefighter is a tough, intelligent interesting super-hero. However her adversaries, the Cult of Crime and ...

review 1: It took me until about midway through the first chapter to realize that "Forever" is the main character's name and not just a strangely non-grammatical interjection people talking to her used; the problem being that she is also called "Eve" which is more obviously a name. I don't...
Walking Dead (2009)

English

review 1: First exposure to this author - blind pick off the library shelf for a road trip. I took it because I thought it was a mystery set in Georgia (country not state), which would be new to me. Turns out to start in Georgia, and has a Georgian main character, but it is mostly a chase ...
Gotham Central, Book Three: On the Freak Beat (2010)

review 1: I can't believe I put off reading this simply because I don't dig Batman that much. It's not about Batman at all. Or Catwoman. Mostly (for me) it's about Renee Montoya, a cop with a bad attitude and anger management issues who also happens to be queer. The queer elements play a p...

review 1: I am really, really excited to see where this series goes. I liked this a lot better than the first volume. There's a lot of great expansion on the world (I cannot wait to see what apocalyptically-tinged event is responsible for the whole Family/serf/waste division), a well-round...

review 1: In this rendition of Batwoman by Greg Rucka and JH Williams III, fans of Kate Kane receive the full origin story for this Gotham heroine. A former soldier, Kane is forced to leave the Military Academy after her sexuality is revealed. Haunted by the death of her mother and twin si...
Alpha (2012)

review 1: Highly predictable but entertaining thriller set in an amusement park amalgam of Disney, Universal, and 6 Flags. No mystery here. All the bad guys are easily identifiable, as revealed early-on by Rucka or to anyone who reads lots of these types of books. Even the protagonist's gu...
Stumptown, Vol. 1 (2011)

review 1: Fantastic detective graphic novel from a man who writes them better than just about anyone. Rucka told a perfectly paced story that not only introduced the character but hinted at a diverse backstory to both her and the people in and out of her life while not giving too much awa...

English

review 1: A noir Marvels? A superhero NYPD Blue? A Batman book without Batman? GCPD takes a concept so brilliantly simple that you'll kick yourself for not thinking of it first and spins a delightfully rich series of whodunnits and vignettes on the human condition.If that sounds pretentiou...

review 1: I'd have been monumentally pissed off if I was buying this series rather than borrowing it from the library. The previous volume I read was number four (you can just about get away with reading them out of sequence) and it contained *every single one* of the stories presented in ...
Gotham Central, Book Four: Corrigan (2011)
language
English
4.41 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: Tramo final para los cuentos policiales de Gotham, donde se reafirma su intención de validar un título con guiones sólidos que no dependan excesivamente del popular Hombre Murciélago. Sea con la aparente muerte de cierto enmascarado o en las violentas consecuencias de la corrupci...

review 1: The book did not make it clear this was the beginning of a new series not a supposedly self-contained mini-series. Had I known that going in or at the end, I probably would have not been so disappointed by the end. It's not an end - it just stops. None of the characters have a...

review 1: In volume two, there's no longer a missing person to worry about, but a missing guitar. But not just any guitar, and that's what leads Dex into another complicated, but realistic case. As with volume one, this series has a strong narrative push, and interesting characters that ...

review 1: I'm a sucker for a good mystery. When I saw that Greg Rucka, whose work I've enjoyed over the years, was getting such good press for Stumptown I couldn't help but pick it up. In recent years comics series like Criminal or Scalped have kept me up at night turning pages to see ho...

review 1: There's gotta be a book five, right? There is no way Gotham Central can just end the way that "Corrigan" ended. Nope. Not allowed.The last installment of Gotham Central was riveting to say the least. Great story lines, the addition of other superheroes (i.e. Captain Marvel, Teen ...

review 1: "Tell me you did not just shoot Batman?!"That was probably the best line of the whole series, a series that I enjoyed immensely, but that ended with a bit of a whimper. Yeah, I know, some of the plots get resolved in other comics, but for someone who doesn't read any of the DCU c...

review 1: Garth Ennis had two very different takes on The Punisher; his anarchic, superhero-featuring and frequently hilarious Marvel Knights series and his stripped down, hardcore, gritty and realistic Marvel Max series. This reboot sits somewhere in between the two, and works pretty well...

review 1: Definitely an improvement on Volume 1 - yay, more Rachel and biffy that actually makes sense - with the story beginning to spark. I do like the collaboration. Artwork still up and down, although my ambivalence about that probably has a bit to do with the gussying-up of Frank (h...
