X-POSITION: Phoenix, Upstarts & More Tear Up Bowers & Sims' "X-Men '92"
It’s very easy to be down on comics.Â There are so many crappy ones.Â There are crappy ones made, at least in part, by people whose work you normally really admire.Â Like that DC 0 thing, Jesus, what a piece of crap!Â And, yeah, it’s easy to throw a dart at a shop and have it land on something lame.Â But throwing darts is stupid.Â If you threw a dart on the female populace of NYC you’d probably land on something less than happifying.Â That doesn’t mean there isn’t anyone out there that can’t make you feel all silly.
And there’s good comics out there.Â Really good comics.Â You can read the painfully-funny Achewood almost any day.Â Roast Beef pretty much makes up for all the other web comics nastocity by himself.Â I hadn’t been to the shop in a while so I had a big stack today.Â But as I was eating dinner and having some drinks, I got to read ‘Beto Hernandez, a ridiculously-fun Mighty Avengers drawn by Alex Maleev (I’m a sucker for “get the gang together” bits), Brian Wood’s Viking beauty, and an Abe Sapien book.
Listen, if, at this point, you’re down on “comics today” it’s your own fault.Â Stop reading such crap.Â The good stuff isn’t hard to find.
