Sex Criminals 2-3:
Synopsis: Collecting 6-15 these two comics continue the story about two humans who can freeze time when they orgasm.
I was able to get these for a really great price at my local used bookstore, but I found that I was sort of disappointed in the continuation of the story. The first volume was hilarious, it didn’t take itself seriously and it was just a really great read overall. I felt like these next two books didn’t have the same hilarity. Instead they took a more “realistic” turn. The second volume was a lot about depression and thus I found it very depressing. Which was not what I wanted to read about. The third volume was very meta and I honestly found it more annoying that entertaining. Overall both volumes were a 2.5 read.
Goodreads Synopsis: Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are.
My brother-in-law had a copy of this fantastic novel and lent it to me. I admit I read this in just a couple hours because it was so good. Nimona is everything you want in a fantasy adventure story for young adults. It’s fun, it’s magical and the art style is simply stunning. I don’t want to give too much away, so I’ll just say that this was a five star read for me and I highly highly recommend it.
Low Vol 2:
Goodreads Synopsis: Will Stel Caine rise from the depths to become first human in millennia to set foot on the surface of the Earth? Who is the relentless Minister of Thought on a quest to put an end to Stel’s attempt to restore the light to a dying world?
Collecting: Low 7-10
This collection was three stars compared to the first one’s four star rating by me. Though the artwork is still lovely, and the characters are pretty great as well, I felt like the plot was a little slow. It dragged in a few places, and thus the reason for the lower rating. I still think this series is still interesting though, and I plan on reading the third volume.
