"Travis, I think you mean Hex Wives? That was the previous series I reviewed recently. I guess I cut High Level more slack for formula well executed than you did. I did like Hex Wives better."

"I didn't even make it as far into this as I did High Level. I found it to be just a formulaic series I bailed after one, but I was still committed though issue 3. I think because Vertigo has such high quality series, I am harsher when a new one…"

"I think this is a series that would definitely read better as a trade. Mark, you're 100% right about it being hard to follow. It was around issue 3 or 4, that I thought I had missed an issue. Still a pretty good read."

Heroes Convention 2009

Posted on June 19, 2009 at 11:26pm 2 Comments

After a late start, spent almost seven hours at the convention. I attended one panel discussion: "The New Power Generation of Comics" with Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Brandon, Ed Brubaker, Jonathan Hickman, and Matt Fraction. Matt Brady of Newsarama attempted to moderate, with limited success (at one point Fraction turned a question around and basically interviewed Brady instead of the other way around). These writers all know each other, and had a good time tossing the questions around,… Continue

Thanks, Mark. Just clearing up a question a friend made of me about the review of Don Quixote (I'm NOT that Rob Davis). This looks like a fun place, though I doubt I'll have much time to visit often.
