This week on Teenage Wasteland…

If you know your history, then you understand that I was a hardcore Invincible fan at one point in time. So, how does the book hold up when I return to reading after a ten issue hiatus? Have my thoughts changed?! Also, some opinions on DC Entertainment, a congrats to iFanboy, comic reviews and Jeff Sandquist stops by to share his thoughts on Mesmo Delivery (which I now want to read). Enjoy!

Books Discussed
Nexus: The Origin
Invincible #70
Hate #5 and 6

Quick Review of Image United 0

I wasn’t that fond of the main story and I can’t really pinpoint a reason why. The art was fine, the story itself seemed like a prequel to an event and the colors were fine. For some reason, I didn’t come away from reading it with “joy in my heart”.

I really liked the backup story ‘Image Untied’. It was one of those “superheroes drawn in a cartoony style like they are little children” type stories, but unlike most stories of that ilk, I thought this one was funny.

I talk about some recent controversies surrounding opposing manifestos, debates about creators and critics and I admit that I was wrong about something pretty big.

Before Kirkman, there was Bakshi

With all of the hubbub that the so-called Kirkman Manifesto has started in the comic blogopodoforumso-sphere, I found this YouTube clip of Ralph Bakshi (originally found on Kyle Baker’s blog) to be even funnier than I otherwise would have thought:

Now he is talking about animation, but he might as well have been talking about creating comic books or almost any other modern creative endeavor.

Now I haven’t watched all of the original Kirkman video, but I have read the accompanying text piece. I have heard that Kirkman has backpedaled a little in some subsequent interviews, but I also haven’t heard or read them. I hope not because there was a lot of good stuff in what he said (or I should say, from what I read of what he said.)

One last thing, Bakshi rules.
