Gun Machine (2013)

English

review 1: Okay, this is a good book. Not a great book but a good book, better than average. This book has a plot as straight as a West Texas highway, lovely dark humor, and well, a few plot holes. This is a police procedural with the spice being in the crime scene unit techs - they are ref...

review 1: "Tome," is the word. At slightly over 800 pages, this book is massive enough to warp gravity. Drop it, and seismographs around the globe will spike. Collects not just the original comics, but also the various crossovers with The Authority and so on that were published as one s...

review 1: Highly stylized, supernatural, vigilante justice from a street-level anti-hero. It's like Batman mixed with Spawn but much, much better than that comparison suggests. I like the pencils. I like the coloring even more. Each issue is a one off story told economically and often uniq...

review 1: Excellent and original idea concerning an alternate history arms race to create superhuman beings - This does not end well! If I have an issue with this I'd say that it moves so fast that it's over almost as soon as it begins and I'd have enjoyed reading a much longer and more in...

review 1: I'm not sure how this hasn't got past the development stage of a TV series. The first 12 episodes have already been written even. They could be lifted as is from the graphic novel. That's how good this series is. This is Warren Ellis at his best.The premise of the series is s...

review 1: Ich denke, allein der Umstand, dass ich in den letzten 12 Stunden kaum etwas anderes getan habe, als an diesem Comic zu lesen, zeigt meine Begeisterung für die Reihe. Ich habe mich relativ schnell in sie verliebt und obwohl ich heute andere Pläne hatte, konnte und konnte ich einf...
Aetheric Mechanics (2004)

English

review 1: Re-read. Major plot spoilers occur...Aetheric Mechanics is a short black and white comic (called a graphic novella) with nicely detailed art and I'd consider it to be a modern day steam-punk Sherlock Holmes concept used with derivatives of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original cast. ...

review 1: Think back to all those pulp WWII paintings of smiling girls on the sides of airplanes. Now create an alternate timeline where we went into space, fought worlds on other planets, and met new alien races. Now make those smiling girls into just one badass space chick who has flow...

review 1: Hmmmm...on a frame-by-frame basis, this instalment of the Marvelverse was awesome. I loved the artwork in most of the short stories (the facial expressions during several of the fight scenes really pulled me in), and the interactions between characters had all the snark and bant...

review 1: Apesar de ter esquecido a cronologia e lido este volume antes do que deveria (consequentemente me dando alguns spoilers...) eu o curti bastante. Gosto muito do Ellis, e ele não decepciona. E impressiona a consolidação da evolução no desenvolvimento de Scott. Que personagem, que p...

review 1: Fun book. More light hearted than my typical tastes, but enjoyable. Might be a little low brow for some. I enjoy a good poop or dick joke so I was amused. Warren seemed to be having a good time writing it. Ellis uses parodies of existing characters and familiar backdrops to ...

review 1: It's been a few years since I read Planetary and haven't read it all since it finished. I was trying to collect the out of print Absolutes, so I was excited when DC announced this collection. Not only is all 27 issues in the book, but all 3 crossover issues (one of which is the B...

review 1: A lot of s#!t just got real in this one. I can finally say that I really like where things are going. As in, I'm sure they're going somewhere for more reasons than just, "Oh, but it's Warren Ellis!"I can also say that thanks to Duffield's incredible panels, I think I love Luke. I...

review 1: Woah, was für eine miese Stelle, um den Band zu beenden! Das war am Ende nun wirklich spannend, ich hatte eigentlich gar nicht damit gerechnet, dass Luke es noch schaffen würde, sich zu befreien. Wahnsinn, und wer ist das hinter Kait? Doch nicht etwa Mark? Ich wäre ja unheimlich ...

review 1: There's a bit more going on in this volume of FreakAngels than in the previous, expositiony volume. This doesn't affect my enjoyment of it, much. I really liked the first volume for the setting, the characters, and dialog, and also for the beautiful, haunting panels of a flooded ...

review 1: An absolutely standout achievement. This is some of Ellis' very best work, and between him and Shalvey's gob-slapping artwork, a volume I can't recommend enough. Simplicity is the game this collection plays. Whereas most books are itching to start establishing some huge overarchi...

review 1: Excellent surprise. I hadn't even heard of this, and having recently read all of Planetary, I've been eager for more of Ellis at his best. Though Ellis and Garth Ennis often get lumped in with the more dubious Mark Millar, much of their work has for more resonance and in between ...

review 1: I loved the heck out of this one. Essentially, the X-men figure out that a mysterious figure has been gathering resources over the past several decades, and is intent on wiping the remaining 198 mutants off the face of the earth. The build-up is a pretty typical superhero story,...

review 1: Birthday TPB #1- Another one of Warren Ellis' great genre deconstructions. This time it's Golden Age serials like Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon. After great adventure in the cosmos, Earth's space heroes bring intergalactic war into World War II. The world suffers greatly and then ...

review 1: Enjoyable and ridiculous cross-dimensional secret war crime case for the X-Men. For me, the best bit is all the alternative endings, where in multiple other universes the X-Men fail to save the day and everyone ends up dead. It gets to have its cake and eat it. Also, I like anyth...

review 1: A friend who works in a comic book store gave me this series to read back in 2006, I think. I loved them. It might have been some of my first exposure to Warren Ellis. Back before I was a fan of his who specifically hunts down anything new he writes.I read the first book, and the...
