Review time! with Crystallized

Crystallized1 (2)

I received a nice .pdf of this comic from its creator, and now he’s posting a page a day to his Tumblr, so I feel bad I didn’t get to it sooner. But at least I can write some nice things about it before the entire comic goes up!

That cloud of falling golden hair, that vivacious green, those trembling shadows, that shy, delighted, self-surprised face … if her God was watching, He must have wished Himself the Fallen One that night. (John Fowles, from The French Lieutenant’s Woman)

“I wish life was like banking,” I said. “I don’t mean it’s straightforward. Some of it’s incredibly complicated. But you can understand it in the end, if you try hard enough. Or there’s someone, somewhere, who understands it, even if only afterward, after it’s too late. The trouble with life, it seems to me, is that it can turn out to be too late and you still haven’t understood it.” (Julian Barnes, from Talking It Over)

Review time! with some small-press comics!

02-11-2014 01;25;29PM (2)

Yeah, I get comics sent to me occasionally. We all do, and it’s always fun. I review everything that is sent to me as a physical copy, but occasionally I forget to review stuff that is sent to me electronically. If it’s not right in front of me, my oldness kicks in and it slips my mind! So today I’d like to review a few things that two Facebook friends sent me recently (meaning in December and January). Plus, on the 26th of January I went over to the Amazing Arizona Comic Convention, and I bought a few comics there that I’d like to review as well. Finally, I just got another comic via email, so I’ll check that out, too. So let’s get going, shall we?

“Well, I don’t really know how it feels, because I was so upset over it, but basically it feels like you’ve just tried to kill yourself. Until you almost kill a person you don’t really understand what it’s like to be a human being, how quickly and easily you can die yourself. Up to that point, I pictured life as something that gradually leads to death. And death was a process, something that happened over a period of time, eventually. Now I know that death is a halt. It just happens, suddenly. Life ends. Life just stops, and even if you’re ninety, it still happens right in the middle of your life.” (Jeremy Leven, from Creator)

Gentle winced. “That’s not religion, it’s masochism.”

“And masochism isn’t a religion?” the other replied. “You surprise me.” (Clive Barker, from Imajica)

There comes a time in the life cycle of a nation when no decision that can be made is the right one and no action that can be taken is intelligent. (Joseph Heller, from Picture This)
