What I thought of Oh Killstrike #3

Thoughts about #1 and #2.

This issue of Oh, Killstrike goes for the comic fandom jugular by taking on comic conventions and the double-edged sword that is cosplay before diving back into the plot to find Jared’s long lost father while having a pop at 1990’s mainstream comics. 90 more words

Oh, Killstrike 2 (June 2015)

Issue two of Oh, Killstrike dispenses with any further hand-holding for the uninitiated to the nuances of comics industry arcanum. Writer Max Bemis introduces analogues to Todd McFarlane, Jenette Kahn and/or Karen Berger and Alan Moore, all without explaining the significance of the references – because this is already issue two and really, where would you even begin?  418 more words

Oh, Killstrike 1 (May 2015)

Oh, Killstrike is a hilarious idea that doesn’t quite hit the ground running in this first issue, but demonstrates its potential. Writer Max Bemis hedges bets on his in-joke’s commerciality early, when on just the second page, comics geek protagonist Jared explains (without naming any real corporate or creator names) to his unknowing wife the comics industry’s contribution to the 1990s “Extreme” trend – exemplified by artists like Rob Liefeld, characters like Spawn, indy upstart publishers like WildStorm and the ripple effect through DC and Marvel in the form of cyborgs, blood, mullets, smaller costumes on the women and bigger guns for the men. 297 more words
