Red Rooster is a new Family Friendly Comic about a 1930's Super Hero... But how does it stand up?
In reading Unsolicited Justice, you get that 90's vibe. The hero of the story, the "Port City Protector" known as Alderman, is a self appointed judge, jury, and executioner to criminals who evade punishment. He brings these criminals to the justice they think they have escaped.
For this week's Extra Tuesday, Captain Nostalgia returns with a devilish Captain's Comic Log. This month he's taking a look at Marvel's 1984, "The Blue Devil." You may be familiar with this character from his appearance in DC Universe' Swamp Thing, but was his comic worth reading?
Even if you removed the dialogue from the pages, you could still "feel" what was happening in the story. Crott's use of color in storytelling is a long lost art that I wish modern-day comic artists would take the time to remember.
Several stories have been announced to launch DC Black Label, but one that caught our attention was Superman Year One by Frank Miller. Frank is no stranger to controversial, dark stories, that draw readers in and challenge the way they see a character. He did a great job with Batman year one which essentially redefined how people see the origins of the Dark Knight. However, the question becomes, does he do justice to the Man of Steel?
