What Did I Learn?

M.I.M.E.S.Today I show you the M.I.M.E.S. comic by Harold Jennet and Wayne Cordova. I don’t know about you but when I see mimes on tv, they hold my interest for about thirty seconds. Strip News 7-3-9

So many pink comic bunnies to see…

What Did I Learn?: Tiny Folks

tinyfolk 300x92 Tiny Folks

Tiny Folk by Michal Jedinak is the kind of comic that I always enjoy. It is wordless.

Bodega Genius

What Did I Learn?

Bodega GeniusBodega Genius by Ben Granoff and Dov Torbin struck me as a nice little three page minicomic. One of the first things you’ll notice is that the first page differs from the second two in the art style.

All this just from last Friday until Wednesday…my hat is off to all you comics folk. You work hard and keep yourselves busy…

Gordanian Algebra

What Did I Learn?

Getting to know Gordian Algebra by Austen Andrews is easy. The lead character has no name (easy to remember,) no neck and no memories (no backstory.) He (usually) is joined by a doctor named Singh and an unnamed nurse. There are a few others that appear from time to time, but the unnamed lead really needs their help – most of the time.

I have some other commitments on my time tonight, so I’ll just post all the news on Friday instead of breaking it up into two posts.

What Did I Learn?: Robot 13 (#1)

Today’s review is on a printed comic called Robot 13 (#1) by Thomas Hall and Daniel Bradford. Likely you’ve heard of it, read a review or maybe even own a copy, so I’ll not waste time dwelling too long on the obvious. I’ll be linking to some other sites which have more information, interviews and page samples so that you won’t miss out.

This particular issue finds the robot being dragged up from the depths by fishermen and almost immediately having to save them from a monster of the deep. He doesn’t have to save them but he is a hero and that’s what he does. The fishermen wouldn’t have stood a chance without him, really. Frozen by fear, one by one they would have simply been tasty hors d’oeuvres. One source helpfully says that Robot 13 takes place in 1939 which explains the wooden ship, guns and the odd shape of the robot. (I might suggest that Zuda hopefuls probably ought to take a gander at this to see how to sell a series within a limited number of pages.)
