Creator-Owned Heroes #2 Review
This issue is not a boring read. I still believe that having all the non-comics features placed after both comics will not get many readers interested. I have my thoughts on the artwork in the review for the first issue.
“Triggergirl 6, Part 2″
Written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray. Drawn by Phil Noto.
In part 2, there’s the first extraordinary revelation about Triggergirl. Readers got plenty of what Triggergirl is, but now we get the “why” when she confronts the President. At this point calling Triggergirl a “hero” is charitable. Civilians don’t cozy up to this alluring assassin.
“American Muscle, Part 2″
Written by Steve Niles. Drawn by Kevin Mellon.
Desperately looking for a new destination, the group re-evaluates themselves from fleeing from those undead people. There are also some refreshingly poignant moments between two characters.
- Jimmy shares his tools of the trade and his tips on Kickstarter. His interview with Paul Pope is a journey into Pope’s creative brain.
- Steve Bunche’s editorial about the dreaded censors. I agree with the general point, but the issues of censorship and appropriateness of comics is not that simple.
- Interview/profile with personal trainer Victoria Pal. That should’ve been between “Triggergirl” and “American Muscle.”
- Steve plugs Monica Richards’ new album and shares ideas for helping the struggling comics industry.
- Justin Gray’s thoughts on breaking into the comics industry and creators’ need for marketing. I really agree with his points on embracing digital and considering younger readers.
- Bill Tortolini’s fascinating spotlight on the forgotten letterers making our comics great. Love that shoutout to Richard Starkings.
- Finally, an interview with Revival‘s Mike Norton.
Both issues of COH are on Comixology. If you haven’t a clue how creators function in the grinding comics-making machine, you should pick up a copy and read through the features.
