Confession: I picked up the WicDiv Christmas special because the previews showed the beginning of a cute romance scene and I’m here for it. I’ve only read volume one of the series and that was ages ago. I don’t even know who the characters are.
I have a huge backlist of comics and one of my goals for next year is to eliminate it (mostly because I want to reclaim the physical and digital space), so I’m trying my best not to jump into any new series unless I really, really wanna.
I finally read Airboy and wow! I’m curious how much of this debauchery is true/close to the truth, because it had such a tell-all feel. I’m an art snob. I always hone in on the visuals and Airboy has really good ones. It goes between technically tight and expressive where it needs to, the coloring was highly effective, and the style is plain fun, it made the overwhelming egregious behavior of the main characters palatable long enough for me to buy into the story.
Nightwing Rebirth was alright. All the #0s are basically summaries for the newbs like me, but I’m hesitant to continue Nightwing because I heard it was kind of dull? Apparently, even that booty just can’t save his storylines. We’ll have to see.
Gotham Academy: Second Semester I liked the drawing from season one so much more, but I still enjoy this series. I just love teen detectives. I’m excited to see where some of the early set up for this semester is going. Amy(?) is so aggressively annoying, but at least she’s probably not real?
And I’m real excited to continue Runaways. That #1 was fun. I have high hopes for the rest of Rowell & Anka’s run.
