One last post for 2011

I guess it's the right time to up my postcount for 2011.

I've been very busy with real life these last months. I've changed of job, bought a house and had a second daughter.

Yet, with the holiday season, I've had time to read a few comics and here are my comments about them.

JLA : another nail, Fantastic Four : The End and Avengers Prime : surely that Alan Davis guy can draw. And his writing is good, too (especially in FF : the End).
Les Chroniques de Conan, 1977 (french reprints of Savage Sword of Conan from the year 1977) : those Buscema and Alcala guys were no slouches either.
Batman and the Monster Men, Batman and the Mad Monk : Matt Wagner can draw and write ! I only wonder how many tales DC will manage to pack in Batman "first years".
The Walking Dead (book 1 and 2) : like the Zombie cocktail : potent stuff but not for me.
Chew (book 1 and 2) : more to my taste.
Criminal : the last of the innocent. Crime doesn't pay. Except when you can write good stories about it, like Brubaker and Phillips.
Scalped : the series will end in 2012 and I'll miss it (but at least, it's no cancellation but the planned ending).

And last but not least : the Daredevil relaunch. DD got back his cool, he's no more a pawn in the series and is graced with very nice art. What's to asked before his next breakdown ?

See you next year.
