Stack Rundown, 03/27/2016

Happy Easter, and now I'm going to talk about the commercialized entity that has kicked Jesus out of Christmas, lesbian werewolves, and Cthulhu pants, good wholesome family fun for everyone!

Cry Havoc #3

Still really enjoying the hell out of this book, though I'm starting to find myself liking more parts of it than others thanks to the whole three colorists on three separate stories thing the book has got going. I definitely like the middle section best, followed by the beginning then end. It really is interesting to see what different colorists can do to the same artists work, a lot like inkers. I remember a while ago there was some piece of Jim Lee art where twenty or so inkers went to work at it and they all looked pretty radically different. Now I don't think any one colorist makes Ryan Kelly's work look as radically different from another, but I definitely think some are more... I don't know, "complimentary(?)" than others. Just a cool thing to observe in a book that's already really interestingly weird as shit in some spots.

Klaus #4

Grant Morrison and Dan Mora still doing their Santa thing. I've said it before, but this is so strangely straightforward for Grant Morrison, to the point where this week I even started to question if he was even writing this book. I guess it makes sense though. When all is said and done, theoretically Boom could collect this as a more mainstream thing to sell around Christmas. Who knows. Anyways, I'm really liking Dan Mora's art. I was completely unfamiliar with him prior to this series, but he has definitely gained my attention. He does everything from really great expressions to super trippy weirdness. Just a very pretty book, probably the one thing that stood out to me most this issue, which was pretty light on action.

Invader Zim #8

So if you were never familiar with Invader Zim, it's pretty fucking weird. Here we got some crazy Cthulhu space pants that make everyone zombies... somehow Dib teams up with them, and then he fights Zim, who has robot pants. Pants, right? Usually when you've got characters going "I don't know what's going on" in an incomprehensible story, it makes me mad, but this... this is alright, because just look at those pants. Those are some crazy ass pants, for lack of a better word. This was a comic about space pants, and I paid money for it, and I don't regret it at all. Space pants.
