This is a not-so-review/bullet reviews of the indies we acquired from the past two Kons. May contain spoilers.
Shinkei Hanketsu #1-2
I like the printing quality of this title...it's really sharp.
Shinkei Hanketsu has a really interesting premise. You have a gangster type of guy who will pay for his past sins via an
interesting punishment. It has a lot of potential.
As for the pace, it's a little too fast for me. It was so fast, that the part where Yakusubi took over the old man's body didn't quite work for me. I know he will be empathic during the "possession phase", BUT I think he needed to know the old man a little longer before he "feels" remorse. It could have been one whole chapter.
Slow down a little next time maybe? Let your readers sink in...
Salmon Komiks #2
Salmon has this signature story flavor that I like. Feels much like Short Program series by Adachi. Yung bitin niya, bitin talaga na walang kasunod...halos lahat open ended, and I like that a lot. The humor is also very subtle... :9
Salmon Komiks #4
THe group finally decided to start a series...and I find it intruiging. ^3^ The flipperman was trippy.
Darwin's Association of Delicious Evilness #2-4
As usual, Carlo's art is impressive. THe story got intersting when they started recruiting members for the group. I'm not sure what Carlo used for the original art, but I love the sketchiness.
I still have a problem with the changing font sizes, but meh... I still like the story and execution a lot. :9
More than anything, this comic is a social commentary. Although I think the comic is not for everybody. It's worth checking out since you get to see Marius' opinion on the topic...no matter how surreal the interpretation is. It's raw and I like it. ^w^
Nino Balita - Espiritista #2
Nino is getting better at storytelling. The script is still really good, and I enjoyed it a lot. ;3
Okay, still not done reading everything...it's just a few more titles. But please bear with me on my updates since my baby's finally here and taking over my universe... ^_^;
Stay tuned for more...
