Reading Resolution #4
A. comics and picture books I’ve read
B. finish drafted reviews
Finally got around to posting this after five or so months in my drafts folder.
Description: A digital zine about Portuguese super-heroes, gathering 21 young Portuguese artists.
This was fun because it gave me a glimpse into Portuguese culture and mythology. There were some super-heroes that I would read their comic book right now if they were published.
(from IDW site)
I tried going to different stories to see if my disinterest was based on one or two of the stories, nope. I simply don’t like it. There was not any romance, horror, or crazy weirdness for me to get hooked on. What I did not know at the time of picking this up was I generally like modern comics. This just was not for me.
Black Dynamite 2/4
I can see some misogyny peeping through which bothered me (of course this is Black Dynamite so yeah). It feels like something is off from the last issue. I don’t think they know where they want to go with this comic series.
The authors could really dab a little commentary on black issues. Well, they don’t if they don’t know what they are doing.
Continue and hope the next issue is better
