Interesting Spotlight on Kinetic

I was thinking of doing a bit on Kinetic for a Year of Cool Comics (and I might still), the 8-issue series from DC Focus co-created by Allan Heinberg (before he created Young Avengers) and Kelley Puckett and drawn by Warren Pleece (that’s a pretty top-notch creative trio right there).

But I noticed that Max Barnard had a nice spotlight on the series recently at his comic book site here, so I figured that I might as well just link you to his piece. So give it a look see!


For a second when I read the headline I thought to myself, “Why is Brian posting about that stupid new Xbox 360 motion control device?” and then I actually read the post.

Kinetic was great. That article… not so much.

Yeah, that article was pretty slap-dash and sloppy. Do it right, Brian! :)

Enjoyed Kinetic.

Made (probable) mistake of selling it after reading it. So can’t re-read it to check whether my terribly unreliably memory is misleading me…. but seem to recall last issue felt really out of sync with rest of series…. just didn’t sit that well. (But I often get peed off when series I like end early, and that may be biasing me.)

Wow… I totally forgot that Heinberg wrote Kinetic (well, more accurately I probably didn’t pay that much attention as I didn’t even know who he was back then). I did like that book a lot, though.

That was a cracking book that came in a super-cheap TPB ($10 for 8 issues IIRC).

At the time it was Kelly Puckett’s name that drew me to the book (and the price). I loved Young Avengers though so Allan Heinberg has to take some of the credit.
