This title is satire?


Have you read any of Chaykin's stuff?

Indeed. Well put, Jeff of J.

Aaaaand Jeff wins the Internet today.

I tried the first issue of this series, and it was alright. The second issue I didn't even get through. It isn't the material, for me that is whatever. It was just a wall of text followed by a wall of text. To me, that is when you need an editor to come in there and do something with it. I swear sometimes these creators forget comics are a visual medium. It reminded me of some of the Marvel comics from the 70s (see Warlock).

So I'll follow Chaykin's advice and not buy the series, but for the execution of the comic, and not for the material.

Some, but I can't really afford comics right now and given the current state of things I don't really want to read this anyway.  If this is a satire in the mode of Bomb Queen then I don't think it's being received well.

It is satire, but I don't think it's in the same vein as Bomb Queen. I haven't read Bomb Queen, but I remember it coming out, and I feel like that was pretty lighthearted. This isn't.
