Like Deadwood, but comics That’s how everyone describesBrian Azzarello and Marcelo Frusin’s Loveless, because both are foul-mouthed, grisly, and well-written.The second volume starts off with flashbacks for Wes Cutter, his wife Ruth, and former slave Atticus Mann (all drawn by Daniel Zezelj). Then, things get back into gear with the story of a couple killed in their house, and a bounty hunter coming to Blackwater to kill Wes, now the sherrif in town.The series has only been around for 12 iss [...]
Gave this series one more chance, and it's just more of the same. Occasionally a cool showdown type scene, but overall not worth it.
Brian Azzarello, Loveless: Thicker than Blackwater (Vertigo, 2007)After the nastiness that plagued the first volume of Loveless, did you really expect things to get better? This is the world of Brian Azzarello, folks, and in this world, things do not end well. The carpetbaggers decided to kill two (or, in fact, many more) birds with one stone by appointing Wes Cutter the Sheriff of Blackwater; no one had any idea he'd actually take the job seriously, least of all Wes Cutter himself. But when a s [...]
I still didn't like this any better than the first volume. It's very bleak and depressing and there's no character that's even remotely sympathetic. I know people can be horrible, but this paints the kind of picture I don't want to look at. I think what bothers me is that there seems to be no hope at all - no hope and no point. I have the third volume here, so I'm going to read that as well, but I have to say I prefer Jonah Hex. What I dislike most, I think, is the crudeness. Again, I've watched [...]
Y acá se va todo al carajo, para bien. ¿Cómo seguir una serie hasta un tercer tomo cuando a fines del segundo no queda casi nadie vivo de los personajes recurrentes? Lea Loveless y tendrá la respuesta. Con el correr de los capítulos la serie gana en impredecible y en impresionante. Guion y dibujo se unen con armonía y sinergia y todos salen ganando. Particularmente interesante me pareció el recurso de usar "fantasmas" para los flashbacks. Creo que en el #1 ya lo usaban, pero es acá donde [...]
The first volume of Loveless "A Kin of Homecoming" left me eagerly waiting for more. The book offered top-grade storytelling and tackled heavy themes directly and fearlessly, offering a modern, analytical viewpoint into the years following the American Civil War."Thicker than Blackwater" follows organically from "A Kin of Homecoming," but Brian Azzarello doesn't quite manage to keep his storylines and characters in a cohesive formation. The volume feels fractured and unfocused compared with the [...]
I think I have a problem with Brian Azzarello's writing. You can always tell that there's some kind of "big picture" thing going on with his series, but you can never really get at it by reading an issue or two at a time. If it lowers you in my eyes for me to tell you that I still don't know what he's trying to say with Loveless, so fucking be it. And, on top of his minimalist dialogue, there's always this vague-looking art to go along with it. I might check this out when the series ends, but I [...]
En este libro empiezan los problemas. La historia se mantiene interesante, pero el cambio de artista (de Frusin a Žeželj) es un duro golpe. El arte de Žeželj hace que a veces cueste identificar qué está pasando.Y Azzarello, por alguna razón, deja cabos sueltos en la historia, líneas de trama que empiezan y no van a ningún lado. Otro defecto es que muchos personajes se parecen entre sí, entonces cuesta identificar quién es quién.Es interesante, pero just by a little.
Wowis is a pretty brutal book, but I imagine the Civil War was in many ways brutal off the battlefields as well as on. A man once thought dead, captured up north, returns to Blackwater and is made sheriff of the town. Blackwater attracts death, crime, sex, and plenty of hot lead exchanges. There are no "good guys" in this book.
Beautiful art by Danijel Žeželj in this. I wish he could have done all of it. I'm not entirely sure I understood what was going on during most of this, but I enjoyed reading it, and it left me wanting more.
I don't know what this vol. was about. I read it in a couple of hours but, I don't have a clue about what was this about The art is ok, and the book itself is funny and have a good rhythm, but the story, I haven't a clue what this was about
Un traspaso e historias más íntimas que dan el contexto a la idea central. Buen puente al descenlace.
I need to complete this series no matter what :s *arrgh*
I'm just not into this series
Not that compelling. Crude and violent, with not any likeable characters.
A good second volume. The flashbacks at the beginning are standouts, and the subtlety the characters gain is great.
Capita a volte che dialoghi troppo secchi, tagliati con l'accetta, e una sceneggiatura sincopata, con rapidi cambi di scena, non facciano una storia cruda e dinamica, ma una mezza storia.
Last read November 4, 2007.
Even more fun.
A kind of dull book until its shocking ending.
