Zilla and the Comics Junkies

4.30 Panel

April is just about in the books my friends, and though i meant to share this at the beginning (on April 1), i hadn't read it yet ;)

Arkham Asylum was a little short on story IMO (though not unenjoyable Morrison) but Dave McKeon's artwork is something else. Reminds me a lot of the art in Sandman (this gets at what i was talking about in my post the other day, imagine if this team reworked Sandman Vol. 1?? Wow).

I got the 15th anniversary edition and i seriously must have flipped through it 10 times since my first read... The original script at the back w/ Morrison's notes helps TREMENDOUSLY deciphering the "what?"'s throughout.

Yeah, the story didn't do all the much for me either. I was hoping for a little more but the artwork was more than enough to warrant me reading it twice. Eerie stuff.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
