  • EleaticVisitor
    This brilliant issue has taken No One's Rose to a whole new level. Fractures are exposed and exacerbated both within the ruling party and within the revolutionary party. Socio-economic tensions split both and we get...

    After first seeing the solicit for this series I was hoping for something along the lines of the excellent Obliv18n, also published by Scout. But this is nowhere near the same quality. The art is...not at all to my taste...
  • EleaticVisitor
    The latest issue in this complicated series confuses my feelings towards it even more. Perhaps that in itself is a good sign of its above-average sophistication and emotional weight. But I still cannot tell just how sophisticated...
  • It is so good to have a new Gutter Magic book. For those who aren't familiar, it isn't a particularly sophisticated piece of storytelling and won't blow you away with it's art or push the bounds of creativity....
  • EleaticVisitor
    So far this book is another great example of the art-ness (not to be confused with the pejorative "artsiness") of the comic book medium. The size and shape of the panels, the smooth flat surfaces of the drawings,...

    After a disappointing first issue and--to me--an unattractive cover I've been sitting on number 2 for a few weeks but this issue improves significantly in a number of ways. Most importantly, the science, technology,...

    While I stand by my negative review of issue 1 of this series I would be remiss If I didn't add to the record that by this issue 4 my opinion of the series as a whole has completely changed. What began as a cliche and...

    To begin with, this book is printed on higher quality glossy paper than even most indy titles and the cover is thicker than some I've seen on TPBs. And the cover art is so well done I would have picked this up no questions...
  • EleaticVisitor
    The first two issues were intriguing but perhaps a little too cryptic. This brilliant #3 shores up those minimal deficiencies while only adding to the mystery. For those who haven't picked up this series yet it is well...

      I need to read this. Sounds very intriguing. 

  • EleaticVisitor
    This brilliant issue alternates between total silence, calm first-person narrative interpretation, and moments of frenzied panic all interspersed with visions of an otherrealm. The drawing, colors, and panel layout closely...

    In this first issue Simon Spurrier introduces the reader to four high school students who are each alienated from their peers for diverse reasons. Three of the four end up being brought together and, in some very powerful...

    While I won't give up on this book after 1 issue this debut was underwhelming at best and a good example of Scout's unevennes as a publisher. The art is subpar and the characters are so far looking far more like...

      Agree to disagree.  It really worked for me.  If you do a google search for reviews there are a lot of  good ones out there.

    While this review is coming out after the release of issue 4 I thought I'd put it up anyway since the TPB is coming soon. If you're thinking about investing in this series or the TPB you should definitely do so....
  • After an underwhelming issue 5 that seemed to be all fighting and no nuance, Sera and the Royal Stars is back to form. With Sera and the Stars split up, this issue follows two separate (or are they?) storylines and without...

    Scout's releases have been hit-or-miss recently for me but Canopus #1 counts as a hit. I have to admit that the story and art were not quite what I expected, but in a good and interesting way. I would not say at all...
  • EleaticVisitor
    I know and appreciate what the creators are trying to do but it's been done before and much better. This opening issue was trying desperately to get me hooked emotionally but there was no depth, no sophistication, no...
  • EleaticVisitor
    After a strong but formulaic issue 1 I wasn't sure what to expect here. Depending on how adept you are at predicting plots there may or may not some twists this time around but what the book does it does well. And that...
  • EleaticVisitor
    Pretty much more of the same with issue 2. The story is still promising even if there isn't much development here from the first issue. A little bit more action and--strangely--some aloof contemplation by the protagonist...
  • EleaticVisitor
    Well, the lettering and the art haven't improved from issues 1-2 but the story has just gotten much more interesting. Without giving anything away, this issue delves somewhat into the backstory of some of our characters...
  • EleaticVisitor
    After issue 1 I had hopes that there would be significant improvement and that an interesting story could be salvaged. After issue #2 I'll give Rise another shot but only one more. The lettering is so bad again that...
