What an adorable way to make personal information mining seem touching, rather than insidious.

Great comic though!

I look forward to the day that our technology can do this.

Scribs’ Picks - October 30th, 2013: “The Sandman: Overture” #1

Its been a while since Neil Gaiman touched back on the well loved Sandman story, but it’s a touch he hasn’t lost in this beautifully written prequel which tells the story of events leading to Dream’s captivity from the start of the original series.

For those not familiar with the original series, this prequel is, as you might have expected, rife with spoilers.  But, even so, it’s crafted in such a way that even those wishing to jump in for the first time can do so with ease.  The brilliant art flows across the pages in ways that cannot be described adequately, and paint a picture that is perfectly in keeping with the original series.  There are tons of little things in there for hard core fans to pick up on, plus lots of new things as well.  It’s a very well crafted collaboration.

This first issue has set the bar for what we are to expect from the series, and I daresay that Gaiman has done no less than his best with Sandman: Overture.  He starts of with reintroducing us to the cast, and it would appear that this is to be a very character driven story that will deeply explore Dream himself.  I definitely look forward to seeing where this adventure takes us, and I hope you will join me as Gaiman reveals to us more about the nature of the Sandman.

'Till next I scribe!

Sincerely,

Scribs’ Picks - October 19th, 2013: “Batman” #24

Woo! Feels good to get back into the swing of things.  Hello world; long time no chat.  Coming to you from sunny Sydney, Australia now - I’m getting back into the swing.  I’m going to try and get these reviews out more regularly now, but comics come a little less frequently than they once did, so my apologies in advance for dropping off the face of the earth back before.

Let’s get right into things, shall we?

This week I wanted to take a closer look at the conclusion to the first story arc of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Batman: Zero Year” that came about in issue #24, after the long ‘Villains Month.’

The origin story of Batman has been told time and time again, but for the new iteration of the DC Universe, this is the first retelling of it.  It highlights the struggles of Bruce Wayne coping with his identity in a desire to be both hidden away from the world and yet wanting to have a greater impact upon it.  What really stood out for me in this issue were the two marvelous speeches.  First was Bruce Wayne’s speech about why people choose to stay in Gotham.  It gave the reader something to really think about, and it established a personality for the city that is frequently glossed over but seldom directly addressed.  That is to say, what motivates a person to continue living in Gotham.  And Bruce Wayne performed this speech in such a way that tied so neatly into the story that I have nothing but praise for it.

It was a seamless transition from inspiration to action, and FCO Plascencia’s brilliant colours jumped off the page in such a way that it seemed to compose music with the imagery.  Danny Miki’s inks boldly accented Greg Capullo’s dynamic penciling and it all came together in a beautiful scene through the action that unfolded after the Bruce Wayne’s first speech.

Towards the conclusion of the story, the story that Alfred tells is very exemplary of what Scott Snyder does best - allegorical storytelling.  It was moving and very thought provoking writing, complete with the wit and wisdom that has come to be expected of Alfred’s character over the years, and it tied things up in a very fitting conclusion.

Overall, I was quite impressed with everything about this issue.  While the $6.99 cover price was a bit of a pain, I found it well worth the pain for such a beautifully composed issue.  Pick up a copy today; it serves as an excellent hopping on point for Batman, both as a series, and a character.

Till next I scribe,

I can’t stop laughing at Harry running the fuck awaythe boy who lived ladies and gentlemen.

….You realize, of course, that Hermione Granger lit a teacher on fire when she was eleven, and kept a person alive in a jar for a year when she was fourteen, and studies dark and forbidden magics for kicks, and is one of the brightest and strongest witches of her era. If she came at me, even wandless, I would aparate to Neptune to get away from her.

Hermione Granger also: 

  • punched Draco Malfoy in the nose for being an idiot 
  • purposefully performed a confundus charm on whatshsface WHILE HE WAS FLYING just so Ron would win (omfg that is so fucking dangerous) 
  • literally pulled a fucking Bourne Identity on her parents and managed to set them up in fucking Australia (jesus christ she literally made it so that she NEVER EXISTED wtf that’s so fucking 007)
  • Convinced the Ministry of Magic to give her an incredibly dangerous and volatile device that allowed her to ALTER TIMELINES COMPLETELY (just because she was so smart, literally, that is the reason, her “potential”) 
  • Has enough basic survival skills and badass magic to literally disappear to the middle of nowhere and flourish AND figure out Voldemort’s plot with Harry 
  • Hermione also figures out not only what Voldemort’s plan is, but generally how to beat it, WAY BEFORE VOLDEMORT EVER DOES. Why? because she is just that much smarter and better at magic than everybody else

in conclusion: Voldemort wishes he could be as awesome as Hermione, that’s why he wants to kill her so bad. 

Can we rehave this series with hermione as the protagonist. 

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Used the Power of Research and Deductive Reasoning to Make Sure Harry Didn’t Die”

Hermione Granger and “That time I figured shit out and literally ended up petrified for the cause and it took my friends weeks to figure out that I had the research on me”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Was a Time Lord”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I Realized I was Hot and Smart and Saved Harry’s Ass with Research. Again. All the Time. Really, He Would Have Died Without Me.” 

Hermione Granger and “That time Harry was too emo to actually do shit so I did shit in his name because I am the power behind the throne clearly also PS fought evil deatheaters and won”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I told Harry about the Dangers of Copying off Somebody’s else’s work that wasn’t mine and OH LOOK I WAS RIGHT”

Hermione Granger and “That Time I let Harry Decide Where to Go and What To do and we ended up wandering the forests of dean for like 5 months before saving his ass at Hogwarts” 

Yes, I definitely think I’d read that series back to front.

Hey Ryuu, I was a bit afraid to ask around at the comics store about where you've been because I figured you might've moved on. It really bums me out. You were sort of the face of the comics shop there and much my re-entry point into MTG. Anyhow, hope you're doing alright. If you can find the time, I can get back that hardcover Last Stand of the Wreckers. If not, well I owe you anyhow for the years of good customer service. See you around. Shane Chang

Thanks Shane, I had a blast working there, and it was always nice seeing you.  I’ll still come by the shop every once in a while for Wednesday night magic - and I’ll likely be in this week to pick up the newest Witchdoctor.  I’ll have them leave the book in your sub.  I’m doing alright - if you find me on Facebook, I still keep everyone there posted on what’s been goin’ on.  You can find me at www.facebook.com/scribbledragon :3

Well… This isn’t quite goodbye.

But it sure feels like it.

About a week ago, I lost my job working at Atomic Empire.  The last three months at the new location have been extremely demanding, and I honestly just couldn’t keep up it would seem.  I’ve already found new work, and I’ll be starting my new gig at a call center in about three weeks.  I’ll still always be the comic guy, though.  I’ll keep reading.  I’ll keep informed.  And I’ll stay in the loop.  I just don’t know how long it’ll be before I can bring myself to get out and hang with people again.  To the eight of your who ever actually followed this tumblr, thank you.
