icarusflies's Xombi #1 - The Ninth Stronghold, Part One: Industry review


Wow did I love this issue. And I have to REALLY like something to write a review…that or be bored, but I'm not bored. 
Anyway, here we go: 

The Good!

This read like an issue of Grant Morrison's run on Doom Patrol. Masterfully crafted story, unlike many of the fairly slow first issues. And Nun-puns! You can't go wrong with puns about nuns! This introduced all the necessary elements for the series, absolutely amazing. 
The Bad. 
I didn't love the art, but it definetely suits the series. I think my main issue is Xombi's hair. It has no texture. 
GET THE SERIES! NOW! ICARUSFLIES COMMANDS YOU! And at only $2.99 you can probably afford to pick up ONE ISSUE, see if you like it or not.

Well if Lord Iccarus commands us too..  im surprised its a sort of Vertigo-ish series in the actual DC unvierse its like my world has been flipped.

Good review - it wasn't signed, so I assume Clementine wrote it. 
I've been interested in this - may trade-wait on it now that successive issues are already out...

    Xombi without the Z 0

    I was truly excited about this comic once I got wind of it. I am a fan of the Artist Frasier Irving from Batman and Robin and The Return of Bruce Wayne, but that was the only thing that would be familiar about this comic for me. I dove into it head first and I didn't come up for air. If you are a fan of this artist you will not be disappointed. The color scheme is great throughout and the thick dark lines with very subtle shading is very appealing to the eyes.  The story does not waste any time ...
