What I’m Reading : Graphic Novel TPB Recap

PROPHET -collects 6 issues. First three ‘sci-fi meets search for the holy grail’ issues by Simon Ray are great, rest is forgettable
KING CITY- not in the mood
CRACKLE OF FROST, THE- Excellent painterly tale of one man’s anxiety over love and his search for it
XOMBI-Excellent, however so weighed down in backstory that you feel like you have entered in the middle of a movie rather than in the beginning, which is what this should have been. But sumptuous art and great writing still makes this a very enjoyable read
REVIVAL – Excellent
MANHATTAN PROJECTS VOL 2 – As a rule books by Hickman leave me uninterested, and uninvolved. He tends to lack the ability to make his characters have any emotional resonance. Vol 2 of this series is a marked improvement over Vol 1. Good.
