Hello beautiful Brandy!

February 25, 2009

There are a few comics i’ve really enjoyed. Most of them are violent, funny, superheroic…but none of them are romantic. Well there is the one comicbook which is funny and romantic and truly awesome!

Liberty Meadows is an animal shelter. Frank Cho owns it and woah! It’s one of the finest comic book / strips I’ve read. Agreed, Frank Cho is one of the masters of his time. Also agreed, that Brandy is by far the most beautiful comic character I’ve come across. Agreed, Dean is a male chauvanist and a pig. Also agreed, Liberty Meadows is one of the finest reads in comic books. I don’t own a copy yet.

When I will, I’ll head to a comic con and I’ll get it signed. Yes I will. And I’m hoping it will be Brandy who does the signing. 😀

And maybe Mr. Cho will be there too and he’ll also sign it. 🙂frank_cho_liberty_meadows

Hello Noble World!

July 28, 2008

This is a warm story. It soothes.

This is the magic of Kurt Busiek’s Astro City. A comic book unlike any other I’ve read so far. And I’ve certainly read lots. From the mainstream to the underground to the mediocre. But Astro City is way up there, in the highest reaches of the comicbookfandom.

This is one of the truly rare and few comic books than brings alive the whole spandex superhero genre to a new level.

To read a comic book about a solid superhero team effort and explorations and adventure – read the JLA.

To read about a group of beings whose attitude kicks ass and they kick harder than ever before – read the Authority.

To read simply the best stories – the characters that bring nobility and stories that make you want to read more comics and believe in the goodness that shines through pretty much everything – read Kurt Busiek’s Astro City.

It got me hook, line, sinker and right down to the depths of blue and warm fuzzy sunshine – a joy of being in this world where men tell tales which are worth listening to and reading over and over again.

for justice

Astro City is an Eisner Award Winner (a fitting award too!) – and that makes it a definite winner in my list of comicbooks and collectibles! Written by Kurt Busiek, the series is co-created and illustrated by Brent Anderson with character designs and painted covers by Alex Ross.

Hello City People!

May 13, 2008

What happens when a genius decides to chart down your everyday life…all the humdrm bits and turn it into a comicbook? The answer is easy. Pure Magic!

That’s what happens when Will Eisner puts his brain and inks to work. Whether its Aamchi Mumbai or New York, New York…Eisner has the keen eye, the inquisitive mind, the superlative hand and the guts to make a comic book that reflects the realities of everyday living!

Here is a man who has one of the most prestigious awards of the comic book industry – the Eisner Awards, named after him. Here is the man who inspired the likes of Warren Ellis and me. 🙂

And that’s just one little aspect of the giant of a man!

Ladies and gents, I humbly present to you the genius of Will Eisner.
