Weekly OCD 7.28.14
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under Peter BaggeOCDLucy KnisleyLane MilburnGraham IngelsAl Feldstein 29 Jul 2014 10:15 AM

This week's of Online Commentaries and Diversions:

An Age of License by Lucy KnisleyReview: An Age of License by Lucy Knisley

"…the in-process method of writing and drawing her adventures as they happen gives a vibrant immediacy to situations and sensations. Belying her relatively simple but charming cartooning style, Knisley pages are a cornucopia of information and detail: oversized seagulls, bilingual schoolchildren, and lying sat-navs populate her travels." – Publishers Weekly

 

Twelve Gems by Lane MilburnReview: Twelve Gems by Lane Milburn

"In Twelve Gems, Milburn has created a playful homage to the genre that also incorporates some of the “Marvel-isms” that were injected into the form in the '60s and '70s by Jack Kirby (primarily in The Fantastic Four and Thor) and Jim Starlin (during his stints on Captain Marvel and Warlock). The result is a work that can be enjoyed by a diverse body of comics readers, ranging from old school fans of the form all the way through to newbies who just saw the Guardians of the Galaxy movie." – Bill Boichel, Comics Workbook

 

Sucker Bait and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library)Review: Sucker Bait and Other Stories (The EC Comics Library) by Graham Ingels, Al Feldstein, et al.

"Graham Ingels is the poet laureate of the EC horror comics. His stories are some of the most iconic of the entire line, full of newly revived corpses, horrific villains and some of the scariest moments that have ever been put down on the comics page." – Jason Sacks, Comics Bulletin

 

Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter BaggeReview: Buddy Buys a Dump by Peter Bagge

"Buddy’s life paralleled my own in some sense (crap jobs, weirdo roommates), but essentially I am not, nor will I ever be like Buddy Bradley. I certainly know the type, however, and therein lies the appeal of Buddy as a main character. The revolving cast of nut jobs that Buddy attracts to himself, and is attracted by, doesn’t hurt the appeal or comic potential either, nor does the sharp wit, great dialogue and Bagge’s unique style of rubbery, quavering limbs, popping eyes and massive pie holes shouting and swearing off the pages." – Chris Auman, Sound on Sight
