OK, two today since I missed a couple days. Now to get some in the queue so it doesn’t happen again.
006 - Sinnamon #11
Original Airdate: 11/30/08
Oh boy oh boy, one I can vaguely remember. And it’s the B&W indie comic with all the subtelty of Brodsky. But first, REVOLUTION OF THE MASK! AH!!! AH!!!! AH!!!!
OK, confession time, I have not read it yet. Premise sounds cool, and when I eventually get paypal or some other means of doing online transactions, I’ll probably give it a shot.
Onto the review. Ah… when was this out, the 80s? Late 70s? Clearly still Cold War, to explain the villain. As for the lecherous narrator… I’ve still seen worse. Like more blatantly lecherous. This is subtle compared to some other things I’ve seen, so I’ll let it slide.
Gah… why don’t these people just go make porn. It’s clearly what they want to do. Unless they were trying to market to the younger audience who couldn’t get real porn back then…. and that’s a whole other issue.
Boring fight… AND THEN SUDDENLY CAMEOS FROM X-FILES AND ROCKY AND BULWINKLE. I just… what. OK, moving on. And then the back story for the villian… oh god… the DEEP SOUTH COMMUNISTS. I… I’m speechless again. Nine?
Thanks for that. And who are these other two characters no one’s heard of who fight her in the backstory? That was stupid and pointless.
Because poor literacy is cool. (The KEWL variation had not yet been developed it seems)
The “THIS. ISN’T. FUNNY!” cutaway.
Sinnamon #11 was a very strange thing for me to do, especially in my early days. I didn’t really “get” it, and to a degree I still don’t. I’m not sure if it’s a comedy, a superhero book, a “bad girl art” kind of story… it’s just really bizarre and weird. I had never really encountered a comic like it before and was probably the worst thing that I reviewed back in the early days (going by what I remember, at least).
