Last time on Starbolts: Marcus laid defeated at the hands of Apollo and Velocity! Then along came a redhead from England who chewed him out good! Britannia's not one to mess with, kids. Anyway, Iron Eagle decided it would be a good idea to steal the Guardian, the Starbolts' spaceship. He does just that and shortly thereafter the large ship rises out of the city's harbor no doubt freaking people out. Smooth.

Lila_Quintero_Weaver

Darkroom: A Memoir in Black and White is an autobiographical graphic novel written by Lila Quintero Weaver. It was published and is distributed by the University of Alabama Press.

Summary: The book serves as both an autobiography and as a brief second hand account of a tragic event that occurred in 1965 in Marion, Alabama. Lila Quintero moves from Argentina to Marion as a result of her father’s work as a religious figure and language academic. Much of the stories about her life have to do with how other races are treated and the stumbles her younger family members had while adapting to life in the United State’s bible belt. The Quinteros have a unique and privileged position for racial minorities in Marion, as most of the white locals are completely ignorant about the family’s origin and race, and thus, the family doesn’t experience much prejudice while in Marion, as they are for the most part written off as white. In 1965, Lila’s father witnesses a police-incited riot during a Southern Christian Leadership Conference march, which results in the injuries of several innocents and the death of Jimmie Lee Jackson. Much of Lila’s teen years are spent in the company of rights activists and anti-racists. Her academic aspirations escape her in her late teens and she marries young, but as an adult she returns to college and graduated from the same institution that I did for my undergrad, the University of Alabama’s New College.

I’m rather tired of these graphic novel adaptions of novels at this point. The Web was written by Jonathan Kellerman, adapted by Ande Parks, and lazily illustrated by Michael Gaydos. This shitty book is distributed by Random House.

Narrative: Some guy named Dr. Alex Delaware gets to go on a three-month island vacation by helping out an old fogey named Dr. Moreland search through a mountain of research at a leisurely pace. Alex brings along his pretty lamp of a girlfriend, who has a name, I think, but she mostly just has sex with him and bravely holds onto a tarantula despite being deathly afraid of hissing roaches. As one would expect would happen when invited to a tropical island for no reason, bad shit starts going down, people get into deadly accidents or killed, and tensions rise with a politician. Some other things happen but it’s mostly boring. Moving on.

Last time on Starbolts: While Iron Eagle, the leader of the Guardians fought his way through Agents Embassy, Velocity challenged Marcus to a race that ended with him getting zapped by the Greek God Apollo. Humiliated, we turn now to moments just after the encounter.

Looks like it finally happened, I found something so well crafted, structured and executed that I had to make a new rating category. Swallow Me Whole came pretty close, but Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Seconds is truly a masterwork of the graphic novel genre. It doesn’t add anything revolutionary to the idiom itself, but there is a stroke of genius in just how well the story is fleshed out in a format that has pretty strict limits on the complexity and length of narrative due to page space being spent on images rather than compact lines of prose. It also has a little to add to the metanarrative. O’Malley worked on the book for three years, the other people who worked on it were Jason Fischer (Drawing Assistant), Dustin Harbin (Lettering), and Nathan Fairbairn (Color). The publisher is Ballantine Books, an imprint of Random House.

If there's one thing that the New 52 and Marvel NOW! have proven, it's that far too many great comics end too soon. In a world where many series are lucky to reach thirty issues, few established comics ever seem to last beyond a couple of years, even with a big name attached and high critical praise. 


Even those who do manage to succeed and draw in a strong fandom can all too quickly be torpedoed by the will of others. This can be from a new writer actively destroying any semblance of a comic's prior incarnation to editorial mandates hamstringing the creative team at every turn. Lord knows that the likes of Dan Didio and Joe Quesada have become especially infamous for that last example. The point is that ultimately there are a thousand and one ways even the greatest of comics can meet an abrupt end even as they being to hit their stride.

Well, it didn’t take me as long as I would have thought to find one of Doug TenNapel’s numerous graphic novels that is actually unique and memorable.  Cardboard is the latest book written and illustrated by Doug TenNapel and published by GRAPHIX, as its release date was in 2012.  It was colored by Der-Shing Helmer, who is well known as a biologist and for work on the webcomic, The Meek.

Last time on Starbolts: It all started innocently enough. M'anta and Jenna went out for breakfast. Norad was on watchtower duty. Suddenly, the Guardian known as Iron Eagle broke into Agents embassy to claim "what rightfully belongs to him." Naturally, Norad sought out to stop him just as he was about to steal a shield belonging to the first Lady Liberty. Norad was damaged in a fight and M'anta and Jenna returned to see the crime already in progress.
