From Eisner Award-winning writer KELLY THOMPSON (BLACK WIDOW, CAPTAIN MARVEL) and superstar artist MEREDITH MCCLAREN (HINGES, JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS), BLACK CLOAK is a delectable fantasy and sci-fi blend with a detective procedural shot straight through its heart.   Essex and Pax are two Black Cloaks investigating the murder of a beloved prince of Kiros, the last city in the known world, before it topples into chaos. Mayhem. Murder. Mermaids. What more could anyone want?   Featuring nearly 200 pages of story, this collection contains the first arc of the series that AIPT says "Combines elements of sci-fi, fantasy, and noir into something wholly original and compelling. Move over, Saga. This is my new obsession."   Collects BLACK CLOAK #1-6… (més)

Black Cloak Volume 1 (Black Cloak, 1) de Kelly Thompson

    Carnival Row: Season 1 de René Echevarria (Lucky-Loki)
    Lucky-Loki: In an urban fantasy environment plagued by interspecies xenophobia, a police detective with a secret half-breed origin investigates a murder that will take the story to the very halls of power in the city state. Since this description applies equally to both the television series "Carnival Row" and the graphic novel "Black Cloak", and they are both quite good (and otherwise fairly different), I suspect fans of either might enjoy the other.… (més)

This was...not good. And that actually surprises me, as I've absolutely loved everything else I've read from Kelly Thompson. Not just liked it. LOVED it.

So, I figured, hey, she's doing a non-proprietary character story? I'm in.

The art was far too manga-style for my liking, but that's solely a personal preference and, in fairness, there were times when expressions were absolutely spot on in delivering the right emotion. But overall though, Meredith McClaren's style left me cold.

However, it was the story that I really found lacking. Yes, while there was some character development, overall, it felt either rushed or just stuck in in a spare panel or two. The story was so convoluted and excessively complicated that I lost interest, and simply didn't care about the outcome. Honestly, when I'm reading something, and have only three or four pages to go, and I'm still fighting with myself to just put it down and move on to something else? Yeah, that's not a good sign.

I don't get all the comparisons to SAGA on this one, because it doesn't have any of the depth of characters, the engaging stories, or the sense of wonder of the other series. ( )
