Definitely it’s for the art moreso than for the characters as a reason to follow this series, and with time travel, setting becomes so important, so that’s a win. :) I love the double page splash at the end, and hope that it means the settings will be diverse and showing us locations we don’t often get to explore in fiction.

Comment on Chrononauts #1 by Jorge Carranzahttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/03/22/chrononauts-1/#comment-38266 Thu, 26 Mar 2015 13:49:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=45720#comment-38266 So it’s basically Cadillacs and Dinasours. Nice. To be honest, I really enjoyed this first issue, though I have to admit the two main characters are laughable and shallow. If I had to sum it al up, in terms of when I was sold, It has to be the face of the kid from the civil war looking up to the camera. Briliant cinematography.

Comment on So Long, and Thanks for All the Ish (As in Issues) by Arvindhttp://weeklycomicbookreview.com/2015/03/10/long-thanks-ish-issues/#comment-38256 Sun, 15 Mar 2015 19:30:00 +0000 http://weeklycomicbookreview.com/?p=45614#comment-38256 Some people think I take comics much too seriously, and while they aren’t far from the truth, it’s good to know that there are reviewers and readers like you who take the same approach, leaving us all the better for it. I appreciated your writing skills just as much as your analysis, agreeing or disagreeing. Best of luck in your endeavours!

It feels very good to know the work was read and appreciated.

And you’re absolutely right that there are other reviewers here worth keeping the faith with. I know I will.

I agree that Geoff Johns is massively overrated nowadays, but he didn’t used to be. I also think he remains popular and respected for good reason. I still like him, but my expectations are lower for him now.

I don’t have to go, but I feel like it’s time. I have a pretty rigorous work ethic, even when it comes to something as voluntary as this, and trying to maintain that high standard for both this site, my work, and my other activities was starting to feel like too much. I could’ve cut down my output, but I know that I wouldn’t be able to resist picking up new comics and offering my thoughts and then committing to every issue afterward. Even though I’m definitely going to miss, even regret, leaving, ultimately I think it’s for the best.

Fortunately, the other reviewers here are just as astute and eloquent as me, so by all means, keep reading

Mostly to validate my own opinions because we have very similar tastes in comics. More so than any other reviewer on the whole internet when I come to think about it. You aren’t easily impressed and are one of the only reviewers critical of Geoff Johns, who I think is massively overrated. I am actually super bummed about this. Do you have to go?

I’ve been (mostly quietly) reading you and Dean for many years now. With no ill will at all for your other contributors, whom I will continue to read faithfully, I must acknowledge that you (and Dean) have the thinking AND the grammar. I’ve deeply appreciated reading a body of critical work so deliberately thought out, intelligently written and skillfully edited. Bonne chance with the real life stuff.
