ABC Warriors: The Third Element (2000 Ad)

4.0 out of 5 stars Still going (fairly) strong, 28 Dec. 2008
First of all: the artists. Personally, I think Kev Walker's fully painted work on the earlier 'Khronicles of Khaos' was far too garish and fussy and just detracted from the plot, so I'm glad that this showcases his black and white work. Still a bit fussy, but allows for the story to flow a lot better. Liam Sharp and Boo Cook didn't impress me, and Mike Mcmahon is one of my alltime favourite 2000AD artists - but he drew his best stuff years ago. The true star here is Henry Flint, he's more than a match for Walker or even Bisley.
Now, the writing: I've always enjoyed Pat Mills anti-authoritarian stories, and the return to Mars plotline was a good idea. I love the warriors but their outings have never been as satisfying as the best Nemesis the Warlock strips. They've never really outgrown their status as supporting characters for me.
To sum up - if you're a fan, definitely worth a look, if only for Flint's excellent artwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars monumental, 10 Dec. 2008
This review is from: This Will Destroy You (Audio CD)
Having bought and enjoyed the 'Young Mountain' mini album, I feel obliged to leave this review, just in case any post rock fans out there are considering taking a risk and buying this album. In short, DO IT. There is a marked progression in both songwriting quality and emotional impact. 'Tracks of neverending light' is absolutely phenomenal... may seem simple at first, but the changes that build won me over very quickly. It's a track that often brings tears to my eyes, on a par with Helicon One or First Breath After Coma. If either of those tracks do it for you, I advise you to invest.

4.0 out of 5 stars the final solution... the end of an era, 10 Dec. 2008
I understand the post left by J. Birch, and Simon Harrison is one of those artists who is synonymous with that late eighties/early nineties phase of 2000 Ad's history where it all started to go wrong. I agree that Harrison's work is not as consistent or as easily digestible as Ezquerra's solid work, but it's certainly unique, without owing a huge debt to anyone really. Macneill will always occupy a special place in my heart because of his work on the Dredd classic 'America', but somehow his colourful style didn't really suit Strontium Dog. At the end of the day, this graphic novel has to be commended for its allegorical content, bringing the message of the holocaust to a young audience before they'll (arguably) ever come across it in history books.

5.0 out of 5 stars McMahon's the star!!!, 3 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Slaine: Warrior's Dawn (Paperback)
Five stars for reproducing the GLORIOUS scratchy line work of Mike McMahon. He really puts the other artists to shame. His Slaine is big and ugly - you can practically smell him. And the cover image - I could stare at it for days.
