This one won’t be on the list of favorites of the year. Hopefully we’ll get a good comic next week. I put my focus this week on the review of the Quick Change Animal Robots over at The Clutter Reports. They’re a combiner team so I had to fit them all in.
Chapter By Chapter will be a day late this week since I’ll be posting a Memorial Day tribute (I just have to find one), so look for that on Tuesday. But now that I’m caught up with Phantom comics (there are some prose stories yet to be reviewed so the Ghost Who Walks isn’t going away for good) I need a new Friday comic review series. And I’ve decided on…Robotech! While I just couldn’t get into the current Titan run with all of the changes comics that came before were set in the original cartoon universe mashed together by Carl Macek and many of those I could get into. I’ll be doing this in mostly chronological order (I think a few one-shots are out-of-order), which means while the first comic came from Comico (who adapted the cartoon) we’ll be starting with their solo original tale of what happened when the space fortress first crashed on Earth. From there we’ll go into Academy Comics’ series of what took place between then and the first episode (I don’t have any of the Eternity run outside of a couple of Sentinels comics) before finally hitting Comico and the adapted episodes. I also have a number of the Antarctic Press run and I think WildStorm. The next long series to end should be Transformers since DC and Marvel still have a long path ahead. We’ll also have part four of BW’s Best Friday Night Fights.
And that’s what I know is happening this week. I’ll only have two free days this week and I hope I can do something good. Stick around for more.
