We Finally Really Did It! You Maniacs!

Today, for ComicMix, I reviewed two cheery and upbeat graphic novels about apocalypse and destruction: Toxic Planet by David Ratte and Ball Peen Hammer by Adam Rapp and George O'Connor.

I wasn't overly impressed, but, then again, I'm like that.

"Toxic Planet is the kind of book that can make a reader want to drive a SUV to McDonald’s for lunch and then go prospect for oil in a wilderness, just out of spite."

Ouch.

"Ball Peen Hammer wouldn’t be a bad play (for a nihilistic and depressing bit of contemporary wrist-slashing), but it’s a very dull and stagy graphic novel."

Double-ouch.

I'm re-thinking my plan to get on your good side via comments comparing you to an Aberdeen Terrier in order to exploit your goodwill for an undeservedly positive review.

bingol: Ah, but you're making the assumption that I have a good side, and there are plenty of people who would dispute that.
