Well, our first issue of Batman: The Brave and the Bold has been on shelves for a few days, and we now have some reviews. It's a bit of an exercise in anxiety, waiting to see if people like or hate your work. I mean, I wrote this book back in April. Eric finished drawing it in... May? I don't know. I don't really pay attention to what Eric does.
Anyway... this issue seems like a relic of the distant past to me. I'm currently working on my issue for next April and May concurrently. This thing? Ancient. That said, I think it may be one of our more fun issues of Batman. And by fun, it probably has our most bizarre moment. A moment that almost everybody who reads it comments on.
I'm talking specifically about this:
People seem to like the Penguin getting hit in the face with a seal. Anyway, here's the reviews:
Too Dangerous For A Girl
"it's a fast, fun ride by Eric Jones and Landry Q Walker"
Every Day Is Like Wednesday
"Landry Walker’s set-up is pretty clever and I greatly enjoyed seeing Jones’ takes on so many of these characters..."
"Not bad for a comic based on a cartoon, actually."
But Before I kill You
"It built up to an ending which I'm admitting being moved by, and it sold it for me."
"I predict awesomeness every month."
Exile In Geeksville
"It’s all about bringing in the new readers. – Grade A-"
There's also a nice conversation on the DC message boards here.
So there we go. Next Wednesday I think my (real) first issue of the Incredibles will be released, and we'll have a new issue of Batman: The Brave and the Bold out near the end of October.
