FEARLESS REVIEWER

Erica Friedman reads Fearless Defenders.

Okay, but, you say, what about the script? It was pretty good, wasn’t it? Fearless Defenders┬áreads just like Tantric Stripfighter Trina, only in 20 pages not 200. The fact that the issue is a mere 20 pages is part of the problem, but the writing also made me very aware of the fact that American comics are now written for a very specific audience, one that does not include me. I’ve been defending comics a long time, but if this an example of a good one, I’m done. Like a Hollywood movie, every line was trite and overplayed.

Nerdy Day Off – 30 (ECCC)
I’m going to ECCC tomorrow and thought I might like to have lunch with a cute nerdy girl who can talk comics. I’m going to be attending with an old friend, but he wouldn’t distract me from an adequately attractive girl with a brain and opinions…Hit me back if you’re going tomorrow and would like to do a quasi-lunch date and have a discussion/heated debate about the state of the comic world. Pic for pic. BTW, I’m 5’10″ 160, bearded and have some tattoos. Just looking to meet someone who loves what I love.
