Killing Girl Volume 1: A Sisters Love Reviews
Yep, she's wearing machine gun panties. This one's another shallow comic read recommended by my pal Gavin. Killing Girl Vol. 1 A Sister’s Love is nothing terribly original. It echoes of a few movies (Kill Bill and La Femme Nikita) and some other books (Lady Snowblood, Polar Vol. 2 Eye For An Eye, or Black Widow Vol. 1 The Finely Woven Thread) I’ve read before. But it didn’t stop me from enjoying it. I like tough chicks. So much I married one. And Sara’s one tough chick. Rescued from prostitution and trained as a killer from childhood, Sara is lethal. Of course, she eventually runs afoul of her handlers and ends up on the run. Only, she can’t remember huge parts of her former life. So she sets herself on digging into her past to find out what’s what. You can pretty much guess the rest.The artwork was different. Tough to follow in spots, but I ultimately appreciated it for being a little more unique. Frank Espinosa (whom I preferred) drew issues 1 and 2 and Toby Cypress finished up on 3, 4, and 5. Neat little gallery at the end of this one.Overall I liked it and would say that if you enjoy bad girls that kick ass it’s worth checking out.Get this review and more at:
***I only read Iss #1, so the review is based entirely on that...***Now THIS is what I'm talking about. Amnesiac kidnapped ex-prostitute becomes lethal assassin for the Mafia.I honestly think I could leave the description there, and most of you would be interested.The art won me over more than anything. I think it's gorgeous, using a limited palette of colours, mostly primary with black and white. This is not a hyper-real style at all, nor comic, nor Manga, it's sorta kinetic dynamic streaks of colours, but yes there are still shapes, but mostly the only focus is on the characters, background only suggested. I hope that doesn't turn you off, as I might not be properly describing it...but it really works here. I REALLY love it.The writing is solid enough, and Sara, the main character, is likable for the Mafia Assassin kidnapped amnesiac ex-prostitute she is. There's enough reveal of her backstory to open the way to there being more, and we know where this might be heading, but that's OK, I'm willing to play along.Not too wordy, it doesn't need to be. I really like this one.Lono for sure, this is up your alley buddy, and Mike, I see you own this but haven't read...PICK IT UP AND MAIL IT TO ME WHEN YOU'RE DONE!Well worth investigating. Thank you Comixology for free Issue #1!
Plot and dialogue are nothing new and very basic. This book scores points with me for being illustrated by a couple of my favorite modern comics illustrators: Toby Cypress and Frank Espinosa. Espinosa, who fell off the face of the earth a couple of years ago, does some beautiful work, but his stuff is a bit too abstract for action sequences. If I could complain about Cypress, it's that some of his characters look too similar and can become confused in a sequence. Aside from these gripes, some beautiful work.
I was really excited to read this, because Toby Cypress is awesome. However, Frank Espinosa is not, and he did the first 40% of the book. Also, whoever the hell wrote it is not awesome at all, and he did the entire thing. So this is another "looks nice but not interesting," only the "looks nice" really only applies to the last 60% of the book.
So the only reason I got this was because I loved Rocketo! Espinosa does some great things and this is still one of them. The story however was not as exciting. Also, he is only the artist for the first half. You will find generic hitman, super spy action here. If you love the art, its a worthwhile read, otherwise, look to Ed Brubaker for awesome spy stories!
I picked this up for the cover art and Espinoza rocks one whole chapter. Fabulous. Story is pretty okay, artwork is kinetic and carries the narrative along breakneck. NICE!!! I've seen some of Toby Cypress' artwork in POPUGUN...he's doing some pretty great stuff too.
Interessante tekenstijlen, verhaal is een beetje dunnetjes, maar goed genoeg en doet een beetje denken aan Alias en dergelijke.
Bleh, bad "Le Femme Nikita" ripoff, right down to the pencil through the hand scene. Go back to Comics 101. Quit stealing movie plots, asshats.
Los tópicos de la asesina perfecta y su choque con el pasado en una miniserie dinámica y brutal donde el arte supera por mucho la premisa argumental.
