"ABORIGINAL SCI-FI," MEANING THAT IT TAKES ON REALLY COOL ISSUES OF ETHNICITY/CULTURE, DIFFERING UNDERSTANDINGS OF THINGS LIKE JUSTICE AND SEX AND CITY VS. RURAL, ALL WITHIN A COOL SF CONTEXT. APPARENTLY LOTS OF PEOPLE WHO AREN'T ME THINK THE MAIN CHARACTER, JAEGER, IS SUPER HOT AS WELL. IT GETS WEIRDLY FURRY IN LATER VOLUMES, BUT THE FIRST TWO, "SIN-EATER" PARTS ONE AND TWO, AND A LATER BOOK CALLED "THE RESCUERS," ARE REALLY AWESOME.

IF YOU LIKE SAMUEL DELANY BUT WISH HE HAD PRETTY PICTURES AND MORE ACCESSIBILITY, THIS IS A COMIC YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT. I'M GUESSING LE GUIN FANS WOULD ALSO REALLY LIKE IT.

THE ART IS KIND OF... FLORAL, VERY FEMININE AND FLOWY AND FASHION-Y, BUT STILL WITH ENOUGH REALISM AND GRIT TO KEEP IT FROM BEING SACCHARINE.

ONE BROTHER DOES L.A. PUNK CHICANA LESBIAN NOIR. THE OTHER BROTHER DOES SOUTH AMERICAN MAGICAL REALISM WITH A TELENOVELA AND SOMETIMES HORROR EDGE. WHAT MORE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?

I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE HAD A HARD TIME GETTING INTO THE SERIES BECAUSE IT WAS ONLY AVAILABLE AS A) PAPERBACKS WHICH SHIFTED GENRE A LOT AT THE BEGINNING, AND ONLY SETTLED DOWN INTO THE PARAGRAPH ABOVE AFTER A FEW BOOKS, OR B) HUGE, GINORMOUS, WEIGHTLIFTERS' VOLUMES.

THAT PROBLEM IS SOLVED NOW! FANTAGRAPHICS IS PUTTING OUT L&R IN EASILY-ACCESSIBLE PAPERBACKS WHICH HOLD ONTO THEME AND TIMELINE AND MAKE IT EASY FOR N00BS TO JUMP IN.

NOW IS THE TIME! HOPPERS IS THE PLACE!

BOATH OF THE ABOVE RECS ARE A+.

ANYWAY, MY FAITH IN FRANKIE.

I PUT IT UP ON THE FTP WAY BACK WHEN, BUT I DOUBT IF ANYONE'S EVER DOWNLOADED IT, WHICH IS SAD, BECAUSE IT'S KINDA AWESOME.
IT'S A LOLZY, SWEET ROMANCE WITH ASSKICKINGS AND GODS AND DEMONS WRITTEN BY THE DUDE WHO WROTE LUCIFER. AND THE ART IS PRETTY NEAT.

AGE OF BRONZE

ERIC SHANOWER'S EPIC RETELLING OF EPIC STUFF, SPESIFICALLY THE TROJAN WAR. METICULOUSLY RESEARCHED AND JUST GENERALLY A WELL WRITTEN AND BEAUTIFULLY DRAWN STORY.
