  • DeCarlo Rules: Presumably with an ongoing B&V series, they'd want to keep it nominally in continuity with the ongoing ARCHIE title.
    September 22, 2018, 07:03:48 am
  • DeCarlo Rules: Oh, I hadn't noticed that the story is "Senior Year", so that explains it. It's a one-off story arc, just like "Freshman Year". They're not going to keep them as seniors permanently, or have them graduate and go on to college in an ongoing series.

CRUSHER JOE #1-6 (Studio Ironcat 1998)

PLANETES Vol. 1-4.2 - For reasons that completely escape me, what should have been volumes 4 and 5 were instead marked as volumes 4.1 and 4.2 ... ? I don't know why; it's not like thematically they comprised a particular story arc together. Maybe in the original Japanese publication order Volume 4 was a single volume that (for whatever reason) had twice as many pages as the previous three volumes, and ToykoPop just split it in half for the English translation? It's a bit of a disappointment for the series to end as soon as it does, because it really doesn't feel like there's any sense of resolution, and many characters' plotlines are simply left dangling. I was also surprised to learn that there was a anime series adapted from the manga, since I'd never heard of it. There were a lot of side characters whose stories didn't really reach any satisfying ending. This could have been better-focused and a little less rambling off on tangents, but in general, it's a good kind of near-future hard-science based type of sci-fi that I enjoy a lot. ASTRA: LOST IN SPACE is another such similar series. Wish I could find more manga like this. It's SO near-future that much of the underlying backstory historical context has probably already been invalidated since the books were published by TokyoPop in 2004.


I enjoyed Crusher Joe.  I wonder if any company will license and publish the new Crusher Joe: Rebirth series.   


Planetes is a series that I love.  The fourth volume was double sized in Japan so it was understandable that it was split in two for English release, though it came across a bit strange.  I wish the series had been longer.  I also enjoyed Astra and finished reading it recently.


Have you tried Space Brothers and Twin Spica?  I have really enjoyed each of these.  Space Brothers is only available digitally, unfortunately, and certain volumes of Twin Spica can be a little more difficult to find/expensive these days.

CUTIE HONEY '90 Vol. 1 Part 1-6; Vol. 2 Part 1-6 (Studio Ironcat 1998) by Go Nagai - A sequel manga set 30 years after Go Nagai's original (1973) Cutie Honey series. It has nothing to do with the 8-part anime OAV series (usually called New Cutie Honey to distinguish it from the original anime series); that was set 100 years after the original series, so I guess neither the manga nor the anime invalidates the other. Unfortunately, just as the story was beginning to take on some coherence, it's quickly wrapped up in the space of just a few pages and brought to a hurried conclusion.

I read:

Bill and Ted Save the Universe #1-5 - another entertaining entry in the Bill and Ted universe.

Lucy Dreaming #1-5 - a girl finds that she has the power to enter other worlds when she is dreaming due to her parents scientific experiments.  It was fun.

Mech Cadet Yu #1-12 - Every four years, three giant mecha come down to Earth to bond with cadets at the academy so that they can aid in the fight against the alien Sharg.  Something unexpected happens with the latest bonding ceremony.  I enjoyed the series.

Misfit City #1-8 - Not much happens in the coastal town of Cannon Cove, except for the occasional fan of the 1980s kids movie The Gloomies which was filmed there shows up (guess which movie this is based on).   Then a pirate map turns up with bad guys trying to steal it from a group of kids who are trying to figure the map out.  A decent if somewhat predictable series.

Skybourne #1-5 - A Frank Cho series about the children of Lazarus who are immortals with great strength and other abilities.  Bloody but good.The Woods #33-36 - The end of a series about a group of high school students and their teachers who were kidnapped to an alien moon along with their school building and then had to survive for a few years. 


I'm all caught up with Boom now.  On to Titan Books.

I've started getting caught up on the new comics from the past year or so that I fell behind on - probably around 1800 comics total.  My goal is to be caught up before Christmas so we'll see how that goes.

Today I read Motor Girl #1-10 by  Terry Moore.  It is about an Iraq war veteran who survived two bombings and torture during a year of captivity and new runs a junkyard in the desert.  Very well done.

I also read around a dozen comics from Joe Books.   Their output is nonexistent now so I am wondering if they have financial problems.
Bongo Comics is next and then I will move on to other publishers.

I put my two checks from work in the bank. I am meeting up with my fiancé when he leaves work at 3:30pm to hangout for a bit. Then I go to work at 5pm myself. I work till 10:15pm-10:30pm depending when we get the store cleaned up to the closing managers liking.
