Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3686 - Well... Here's another comic book that I found recently from our five days at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego, (aka San Diego Comic Con or SDCC).
Well... Here's 'My Take' on #3:
Front Cover - Interesting pose for the front cover. Makes me want to immediately open to the inside front cover!
Inside Front Cover - Good layout of the credits for this issue.
Splash Page - Not used... Instead it goes directly to the story, which is in black & white.
Interior Pages - There is no recap as to what when on in issues #1 & 2, so for a new reader to this series... It could be a little hard to catch up on the storyline! However, since I've already read those two issues... I'm fine with the story without a splash page and no recap.
To Be Concluded: Next issue. Okay, the story arc will soon be over. Yet, there is room for a 'Ruling Oz' page and the 'Chapter One' of 'Toto Versus the Fighting Trees' in this issue...?
'Ruling Oz' is an okay feature page, kind of like a 'From the Editor' page...
'Tot Versus the Fighting Trees'... was okay... but not for sure why that feature is in the comic book?
Inside Back Cover - Is the printer's ad page.
Back Cover - Is a nice page, like a 'pinup' page.
Overall, I've got to say that this issue was a fine one, and a good continuation of the series so far. I'm thinking that if and when this gets re-formatted into a trade paperback, that color would be very good for the interior pages...!
My rating for this comic book issue #3? A Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale. Thanks to Publisher Kirk Kushin for bringing this issue to my attention at his booth at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego!
