TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3294:

Early last month my wife, Tina LoSasso, immediately guest blogged her review on 8-9-3 the Graphic Novel (GN) after finding it at the 2010 Long Beach Comic Con, as seen in this link!

That's because she found it to read "like a John Woo film, plenty of action, deceit, choreographed violence, beautiful women, and a surprising twist at the end. This entertaining tale has everything but the booming sound track!"

Which is why I'm adding my thoughts here today!

I finally read it over the Thankgiving / Black Friday holiday weekend.

I must say that Tina didn't overstate the quality of the production value of this GN!

Instead of my usual 'breakdowns' of what the GN consists of, I'll just say this... This GN is definitely worthy of being converted into either a live action film or an animated one!  And Tina has already left her copy with a film producer!

Also... I'll match Tina's rating of the GN plus add it a few points higher in my own rating.

Rating: a NEAR MINT (NM) 9.4 out of a 10.0 comic book grading scale.

I'm also going to recommend this as  'Holiday Gift' for those of you looking for a 'mature' graphic novel, that is NOT 'over the top' in presentation!

For those of you that would like to get your friends reading graphic novels, this could be a good choice, taking into account the violence and some sexual content.  It's NOT for kids, just like John Woo movies aren't!

Here is the link to where you can find more on this graphic novel.  Plus this is where you can purchase it online, at WayOutComics.com.


Note from Michael:  My thanks to Jack Hsu for bringing this graphic novel to Tina's attention at the 2010 Long Beach Comic Con!  This was the one that she wanted to read first and possibly review blog.

Also, my thanks to Tina for reminding me this past week that I had not yet read this GN she so highly praised!  Since she had already blogged about it, I thought I should read other publications that we also received first, but darn she was right, (again!). LOL!
