I love Capullo's art.

I don't get the contradiction:

“Fantasy is completely new to me and I only wanted to do it if I could find a good human angle on it,”
It’s not Heaven or Hell or anything we’ve seen before. The idea simply is that when we’re done here, we show up somewhere else...

If you’ve lived a good life you appear in one territory, if you haven’t, you appear on the other, and both sides are in conflict with one another. This is where all our dead friends and relatives are waiting for us

So it's not Heaven and Hell, but it's Heaven and Hell.

Maybe he means that it's an ongoing eternal war? Seems like splitting hairs to me.

Two sides, one if you're good, one if you're bad, both at war... just not named Heaven and Hell.

Maybe it will make more sense once we're able to read it, but yeah... seems bluntly contradictory.

Some of it makes me think of Kirby and the magic crystal... the pristine country landscape and the monsters fighting humans... some of the tech weapons...

Huh. Even more excited now.

yeah, i'm not going to try to draw conclusions before i get my hands on it.

i'll just go in open minded and enjoy the ride. :D

It's not Star Wars, but it happened a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.

well since it's Mark Millar, if there's not tons of gratuitous violence, gore, sex, or all of the above i'll be shocked!!! :lol:

and i found that series just by chance.

someone was selling an ebay lot of Millar comics for next to nothing.

it had a Hitgirl variant cover i was looking for as well as the first few issues of Nemesis, Super Crooks, and Superior.

after reading the first two issues of each i was hooked!! :D

Nemesis was some SICK S%#@ though wasn't it???

"you have a train to catch" :lol:

It was a unique tale, captivating and well done. So good.

Kick-Ass actually kinda bored me a bit... I made it through the first volume, but didn't make it through the second. It's been awhile, so I should probably try again.

even though it was released after Kick-Ass 2, try reading the Hit Girl series before KA2.
it'll make a LOT more sense and you'll get more out of the story. :)

i added this title to my pull-list when i bought issue #1 yesterday.

a very ambiguous story, but told with enough heart to make you feel for the main character.

some reviewers are throwing perfect 'TENS' at this issue. not that it wasn't good, i don't think it was amazing enough to slap a ten on it.
a 'NINE' . . . . . . . MAYBE??? but definitely not a ten!

now that that's out of the way, the art was really REALLY beautiful!!!

if you are a fan of Greg Capullo's art at all definitely check this issue out!
some of the same type of faces we've seen him draw in 'Haunt' or in the art he did in 'Batman'.
but it still is really really nice!

i did like the writing Mark Millar did for this issue much better than some of his other recent stories that i've read.
i hope we get to see a comic as action packed and bloody as the 'Kick-Ass' series or 'Hit-Girl'. but that's just my own personal preference.

I'm ashamed to admit I forgot about this until you posted this morning, Myc. :teek:

Just read it...

There is no better artist than Capullo, I love the man's art to death. Beautifully drawn issue, and the story's hook is fascinating.

What the hell. I give it a 10/10, but with the knowledge that a lot of my hype is because I simply don't know where the story is going...

no prob! i should have posted this YESTERDAY!!! :lol:

but i guess better late than never right? :D

yeah, this really was a great issue!!! i just wish we could have gotten a little more of what was going on.
but i'll definitely say 10/10 as far as the art is concerned!!! :tthumbsu:

I'd love to see Capullo's take on the TMNT universe. Although Casey would probably look too much like Dick Grayson... my one critique on Capullo is all black-haired Caucasians either look like Bruce Wayne or Dick Grayson, the only difference being the age.

i totally adore his art as well, but even the women have those same facial features as well (minus the squared jaw).

but he's been drawing a similar set of characters for years since the Spawn days.

look at Sam and Twitch vs his Gordon and Bullock.
different, but verrrrrry similar! :D

i don't really mind though!
EVERY comic artist has a set face they draw on everyone.
Neal Adams does it . . .
Jim Lee . . .
David Finch . . .

and you can't really blame them. it's hard learning to draw a face from every single angle.
SO . . . . just use similar features. :)

not a whole lot happened in this issue.

Capullo's art is beautiful.

just not feeling the concept Millar is giving us.

Maybe the cat is a sleeper agent for the protagonist?

And did the dog seriously get to keep his orbs but the cat didn't?

PET GRUDGE MATCH. EUNUCH CAT VERSUS FREE-AND-SWINGING DOG. :flaming:

i think the dog probably got chopped too?

but if you recall Morrison's depiction between the temperament of a dog and cat in WE3,

Millar might be taking a similar approach? :lol:

i'm still getting this comic because i really love Greg Capullo's art.
the story is pretty 'BLAH'. it's not something i'd recommend to anyone.

Have to agree with you; the story is just... whatever. Cliche, boring, uninteresting.

But Greg Capullo!

it's such a shame too. i've been really enjoying the sneak previews Greg has been posting on his social media.
but this story .... very boring and uninteresting!
i really feel like Mark Millar peaked with Kick-Ass/Hit Girl. he should go back to his winning formula of gratuitous sex and violence.

i can't even begin to say just how disappointed i am with the writing of this series.

Capullo is finally starting to get to show off his dynamics with the action. (what little there actually is)
but still, what a wasted opportunity.

i think Todd McFarlane (and even Robert Kirkman) were the only one's to write scenarios that would really show off Capullo's true artistic potential.
