    While the first ten issues of Zot were great with their innocence and sense of golden age superhero nostalgia, what got me interested in the first place were the bw earth stories of the later issues Zot gets trapped in Jenny s world and interacts with her collection of misfit friends and deals with real life issues These issues of Zot helped pave the way for stuff like Strangers in Paradise and Ed Brubaker s Lowlife Great stuff Highest possible recommendation if you re into comic that While the first ten issues of Zot were great with their innocence and sense of golden age superhero nostalgia, what got me interested in the first place were the bw earth stories of the later issues Zot gets trapped in Jenny s world and interacts with her collection of misfit friends and d...

    The modern Superman comes in for quite a bit of criticism for being a bit of a metrosexual wimp, but the Superman of the 1950s was as much a product of his time, with his gratingly patriarchal attitude.Zot, on the other hand, is like a Superman out of time, free of the need to appear in twenty comic books a month or to maintain a status quo He s happy, comfortable with his powers, accepting of the things he can t change, determined to change the things he can He has no hang ups, but is underst The modern Superman comes in for quite a bit of criticism for being a bit of a metrosexual wimp, but the Superman of the 1950s was as much a product of his time, with his gratingly patriarchal attitude.Zot, on the other hand, is like a Superman out of time, free of the need to appear in twenty comic books a month or to maintain a status quo He s happy, comfortable with his powers, accepting of the things he can t change, determined to change the things he can He has no hang ups, but is understanding of the hang ups of others.This superb and substantial book contains nearly all of his adventures in black and white leaving out backup strips and a couple of issues drawn by Chuck Austen though Scott McCloud s layouts are included The stor...

    Just got it, by the author of Understanding Comics Wow, that s a lot of comics for 20 bucks Black and white though.All done It was uneven in the beginning, but I felt my interest escalate as everything improved working my way to the end The director s commentary every few chapters helped me appreciate it I wasn t a big fan of the cheesy supervillians except for Dekker, who sees the world in what looks like modern art Manga influenced, but the author doesn t go overboard on silent panels Just got it, by the author of Understanding Comics Wow, that s a lot of comics for 20 bucks Black and white though.All done It was uneven in the beginning, but I felt my interest escalate as everything improved working my way to the end The director s commentary every few chapters helped me appreciate it I wasn t a big fan of the cheesy...

    I was ready to give this book a bad review, reviling Scott McCloud for ever doing anything but smart analyses of the comics medium like in Understanding Comics. Then, I got to the last third of this graphic novel The first two thirds of Zot consist of McCloud finding himself as a writer and unfortunately that means many of the stories are nonsensical villains of the week combined with overwrought humor Zot himself is pretty boring and the characters around him are meaningless Then, two thirds I was ready to give this book a bad review, reviling Scott McCloud for ever doing anything but smart analyses of the comics medium like in Understanding Comics.

    This book offers a good object lesson in the possibilities and the limits associated with the comics boom of the 1980s 1990s On the one hand, McCloud s ambition becomes increasingly clear as the series progresses and he tries to move away from the superhero tropes that initially defined it Even early on, within those tropes, he is trying to shake things up a bit, especially in his depiction of some of the villains, who don t seem so much villains as expressions of philosophical points of view This book offers a good object lesson in the possibilities and the limits associated with the comics boom of the 1980s 1990s On the one hand, McCloud s ambition becomes increasingly clear as the series progresses and he tries to move away from the superhero tropes that initially defined it Even early on, within those tropes, he is trying to shake things up a bit, especially in his depiction of some of the villains, who don t seem so much villains as expressions of philosophical points of vi...
