Topic: Comic Books - New
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3688 - Well... Here's yet 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).
That comic is 'The Untold Origins Of Invisible Scarlet O'Neil'. Truth be told, I hadn't heard of this comic strip / comic book character before meeting Michael A Gordon at his booth at the Comic-Con!
Here's the Wikipedia entry for the history of the comic strip.
Here's what this comic book is about per the publisher's promo:
"As part of the (web site's) launch, a 32-page history entitled The Untold History of Invisible Scarlet O’Neil will be available for sale on line. This first-ever official history features previously-unpublished artwork, photos, and exclusive historical information not available anywhere else. It was compiled by Atlanta-based Atlantis Studios, a well-known sequential art studio that is also working with Russ Stamm, Jr. on a new graphic novel retelling of Invisible Scarlet O’Neil’s classic adventures.
Okay... Here's 'My Take' on this comic book:
Front Cover - Like I said above, I hadn't heard of this comic strip / comic book character before seeing Michael A Gordon at his booth... And I'm sure that most of the readers of this blog haven't either! So this is a really good intro page for those finding out about the 'Invisible Scarlet O'Neil' for the first time! With the character prominently shown on the front cover, in front of comic strips of her past.
Inside Front Cover - Which is 'A Brief Introduction from Russell A Stamm Jr., son of the creator of the invisible Scarlet O'Neil'! This is a good intro, and helps set up the issue.
Splash Page - I must tell you, that even though this is printed in comic book format and size, it truly isn't a comic book! It has a lot of text with photos / comic strips / etc. on each page. So the 'splash page' asks: 'Who Was The Invisible Scarlet O'Neil?'. A good start!
Interior Pages - More on 'Invisible Scarlet O'Neil'! Her past history and her now current day history... Because the last three interior pages are from the new graphic novel, which I have yet to read, and hopefully will be interested enough to review blog!
Inside Back Cover - 'A Word of thanks', which is an acknowledgment to those that helped put together the info that this special issue covers.
Back Cover - A picture of the then upcoming graphic novel!
So... For me, this special issue had it all! The origin, the history, and the fact that there is a graphic novel in the works at the time of the printing of this comic book.
My rating for this comic book issue? A Near Mint (NM) 9.4 out of a possible 10.0 comic book grading scale. Thanks to Michael A Gordon for bringing this issue to my attention at his booth at the 2012 Comic-Con International: San Diego!
