Review for Chuck 1-A
Comic Book by WildStorm, Aug 2008
A nice "inbetween"
First off, let me tell you where I'm coming from with my reviews. This way you have something to base your reading of my reviews on.
I collect a gambit of comic genres; Marvel and DC mainstream stuff, Marvel's Icon, DC's Vertigo (my favorite overall), DC's Wildstorm, Image including Top Cow, IDW, Devil's Due, Zenescope, Dark Horse and several other Indys.
Here are examples of what I enjoy and think are really well done comics and would give high appraise: 'Y the Last Man, Walking Dead, 30 days of Night (first mini), Scalped, DMZ, Conan, Red Sonja, Mice Templar, Fell, Vinyl Underground, Captain America, Iron Fist, Ultimate Spider-Man, Amazing Spider-Man, Proof, Grimm Fairy Tales, Star Wars: Legacy, Witchblade, The Magdalena (my favorite character of all time), Pax Romana, Sojourn, Batman. There are more, but this should give you some idea of what I'm looking for in my comics.
One reviewer's opinion will not be the same as the next, thus I've provided you with the types of reading I like and enjoy. That is what I base my reviews on. If you read the above information and do not enjoy the same things as I, then my reviews will be garbage to you. So reviews, in my opinion are all relative to the reviewer's and the reader's taste.
Second, my reviews will be the culmination of stars between 1 and 5 (5 being the best) averaged over the subjects listed below.
Now, here we go...
Title: Chuck #1 (of 6)
A bit plain imo. Nothing outstanding, or special. Maybe that's perfect... in a way. Sorta like Chuck himself prior to becoming the intersect. ***
Interior Art: Pretty good actually. Very well done renditions of the actual Television actors. I really felt like I was watching them again. ****
Story dialogue: Perfect for any fan of the television series. Of which I am... big time! I loved this show and felt seriously saddened when the writer's strike hit. Anyway, this issue fills a much needed/wanted gap between the last episode and the new season. All the gang is here. All the Buy More gang. Sarah (smoke'n hot imo), Agent Casey, Ellie and who could not mention Awesome? The little add at the end of the issue for Awesome's "tips" was a pretty nice add to boot. *****
Letters and page Layout: *****
Emotions invoked: Satisfaction, relief and happiness. Most of the comic quips are present you come to expect from the television series. Relief that all the characters act, in the comic, just like you expect them to. They were all written really well imo. *****
