1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER on 10 Dec. 2009
Format: Paperback
I loved reading "2000AD" when I was a teenager - it had an amazing and potent mix of great strips: Judge Dredd, Slaine, ABC Warriors, Nikolai Dante, Rogue Trooper, Vector 13, Strontium Dog, Durham Red. Reading "MySpace Dark Horse Presents" reminded me of those days where there were so many excellent and varied shorts on display.

Joss Whedon presents a whacky strip about a wannabe rock band called "SugarShock!" that combines light comedy, music, and sci-fi Dan Dare style heroics. Peter Bagge chips in with a couple of pages about George Washington and his wife, while the mighty Mike Mignola offers up "The Christmas Spirit", a great little seasonal short in the supernatural vein of his Hellboy books. I've never read "The Goon" before but the strips here are the longest in the book and parody "The Maltese Falcon" by having the Goon and his sidekick look for their mate's pecker.

Some of the best strips here are by artists and writers I've never heard of. The intriguingly cyberpunk comic "Gear School" by Adam Gallardo was good, about teenagers with robot/motorbike style suits, while Ron Marz and Luke Ross provide a generic yet atmospheric story of "Samurai" avenging his lost love against the evil men who took her. "Tricks of the Trade" by Katie Cook and Brodie H Brockie was excellent, a very macabre tale of a runaway girl and a strange magician who recruits her to be part of his act. "Fear Agent" by Rick Remender was a frenetic and mental run through of action comics set in the future and the cracking pace and ultra imaginative scenes evoked the best of "Transmetropolitan" crossed with "Judge Dredd". Definitely a comic to look into further.

Format: Paperback
Comix - this edition features the best band in the universe - Sugarshock - who win the Universe competition with the saddest song described as sort of like Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings: "If it was written by Leonard Cohen... a narrative of loss and emptiness and vibrantly agonised love... with vowels that ring out as plaintively as the unreturned call of the last dolphin on earth." Their singer, Dandelion, wears arm length fingerless gloves, an anti-Viking T-shirt, a knee length flowered skirt and pyjama trousers. Their drummer is a buxom girl, the lead guitarist is like a Dali portrait of a long-haired blonde, with rhythm and bass provided by a robot. They have a resident male groupie, who gets splattered by a laser sword during the performance. I wasn't converted - yet.

Some of the best artwork here is provided by Luke Ross in Samurai: Heaven and Earth: The Forest and is set in China, 1704 (captions by Ron Marz), all in beautiful tones of grey and gold, and features the search of a Japanese traveller for his true love the lady Yoshiko, sold to a passing slave trader. But the most impressive artwork comes with the story of The Axeman which tells of a number of serial killers - the tones of the artwork are mostly black, grey and - you've guessed it, red.

The wittiest production is The Big Blue Note written and drawn by the Fillbach brothers (and continued by a varied cast of other writers, colourists and artists) which tells of the blues singer Poor Willy who got his leg stole by a dog last week and now has lost his pecker (not what you're thinking actually). It's all in the height of bad taste and very funny. In this case, a comic decidedly not for children.

This is a collection of webcomics originally available at Dark Horse's MySpace page.
It is, as per the title of this review, a cool mix of short stories, featuring art & writing by some of the industry's best and most innovative minds. You've got Fábio Moon and Gabriel Bá, Mike Mignola, Joss Whedon, and a whole lot more. I was not disappointed, although I will admit not every story is memorable. A nice buy if you like some light and amusing reading sessions, perhaps on those short trips to the you-know-what. I know that's how I read it. It has re-reading value, especially since the stories are short.
It features a pass-it-along story featuring The Goon, where artist and writer teams write and draw a few pages and the next team will have to figure out where to go with the story, a creative process I am quite fond of. Sugarshock is just laugh-out-loud funny. Some scary/sinister stories in there as well, so, once again, a good mix.

Ups and Downs 23 Sept. 2008
By Uthor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are some mediocre stories in this collection, but there are a few gems that knock it out of the park. The Sugarshock and the Kraken stories are great, punctuated by amazing, as usual, artwork by Ga and Moon. Mignola and Davis do what they do best. The Fear Agent is crazy and awesome and will make me check out the main series. The collection ends with a four-part Goon story written and drawn by different teams (sadly, no Eric Powell) where Frankie and The Goon look for Willie's pecker.

The good stuff is great, then bad stuff is skipable. Overall enjoyable enough to buy and I will most likely keep up with the series in the future.

good stories prevail 21 April 2010
By Evzenie Reitmayerova - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
even though The Sugarshock award winning story steals the show more of the stories are good. there are some misfires but not enough to spoil the book,
you can see a new story of Umbrella Academy, The Goon, Fear Agent - they worked like good samples of books i didnt know.
i think the book keeps pretty high standard and the stories are interesting.
The Sugarshock, The Circuit Closed are enough reason to buy this colection.
Good quality paper and print... dark horse rules.

MY GRADE: D plus. 13 Sept. 2013
By MISTER SJEM - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Boring to mediocre tales with a rare one or two that are higher in quality. Artwork was all over the place from so so to good.

MY GRADE: D plus
