New Comics Wednesday

Just two new comics yesterday:

52 Week Forty-One -- Nothing climaxes this week, but both Montoya's story and the space story make major leaps forward, and that's satisifying.  And Ralph picks on a cripple!
Heavy Metal Genesis Special Spring 2006  -- Bought on a whim, it's got 122 pages so I haven't finished it yet.  The main attraction is two long stories, "Petra's Tale" and "The Keepers of the Maser 7: The Young Queen".  I bought it because I was intregued by "Petra's Tale", which turned out to be crap.  Here's hoping "The Keepers of the Maser" is better...

Another week, some more 50¢ Archie digests:

Archie's Pals 'n' Gals Double Digest Magazine #42 (August 1999)
Archie's Pals 'n' Gals Double Digest Magazine #70 (December 2002)

petra's tale
Dang.. I Google the story I illustrated and worked really hard on and got published in an internationally renowned publication and the one comment I see is that it "turned out to be crap". It's cool. I realize that it's a pretty silly story, and it was written that way on purpose, I just wish wish there were more people commenting on it, although I didn't really expect a lot of feedback. But out of curiosity, what was intriguing? And how was "The Keepers of Maser"?

Re: petra's tale
I was intrigued by the art. That's why I bought it. I had to see how one story could contain so many bare breasts! And if the story had only been silly, I could have enjoyed that. But it was also very disjointed, and read like the writer didn't care much for the story the artist illustrated and tried to cram lots of little jokes into the dialog that were at odds with what was being shown* -- and none of the jokes were any good. If it had been funny, I would have forgiven the other story flaws...

I haven't read "The Keepers of the Maser" yet. I have to be in a certain mood to enjoy European science-fiction...

*I'm not saying that's what happened, just that's what it reads like.
