I found the book quite boring in the beginning, but the story got better when the narrative was moved from San Francisco to Chile
I feel that Ghost World has a lot of lost potential, but never builds on it. Some of the panels are very well done but that doesn’t help
I really enjoyed the overall premise to he series, but in this last book I’m not sure what the author wanted to convey, or if he had a trilogy planned out at all. It seemed like a bunch of story-lines thrown together for good measure, crossing fingers they would somehow work and make sense.
Killing Patton: The Strange Death of World War II’s Most Audacious General takes every gossip, rumor, and, historically discredited banality about WWII as facts
The Unknowns are a strange team up, which frankly I enjoyed. Clayface was my new favorite, and The Demon Etrigan is always fun to read. I don’t believe that Batwoman needed a team though, I enjoyed it much more when she was played off as being on the fringes of the Bat family, working alongside them but not with them.
The author’s narrative is dry at times, but it was tight and well written. The issue I have with this book is that I felt cheated after starting to read.
I am happy that the author brought the attention to the women journalists of World War II, an important subject indeed. I’m going to pick up a few biographies to learn more about them.
I laughed here and there, but I found the book to be more thought provoking than funny. I’m glad the philosophical discussions in the book weren’t much longer, even though they were fascinating.
The story is more of a romance and very predictable, I found myself skimming through the last half of the book.
