"However, this week FLIGHT VOL 2 came out. Now, I have the "TP / GN OF THE WEEK" as a category, but I thought this volume was good enough to transcend just that, and become the full fledged PICK OF THE WEEK.
What a wonderful volume! Each story is fun, and is infused with a sense of wonder and joy of storytelling. Beautiful reproduction, lush coloring, and 400 pages for twenty-five bones, man this is a deal you can't miss. Honestly, there's not a single thing that I could recommend to you this week more that FLIGHT V2, it's EXCELLENT."

To be honest, I find the negative reviews more insightful than the ones that just gush on and on about how great the book is. While I may not necessarily agree with some of his statements (especially his broad sweeping generalizations), it's still interesting to get a different perspective on what people think.

I actually agree with most of what he says (yes, including the part about me) until that bit where he goes off the deep end and starts babbling about "the true medium."

Thanks for posting all these guys and gals! There's so much stuff in Flight, it's interesting to see what each reviewers (with each their tastes in books), have to say.
Keep 'em coming! ('cause I never seem to be able to find reviews...)

That guy Alan David Doane once called my work "garbage" when reviewing the back-up story I did for Detective Comics.

I like that we are getting these reviews. It will just push us to work harder in the future.

Yeah these are great.
Either way 3.5 out of 5 surprised me. It's a lot higher than the review suggests.
It's always interesting (Good or bad) to see what people get out of your work.

Lots to take on board and strive to get better from.

From the Justin G review

http://www.wackyhijinx.com/perl/blosxom.cgi/2005/04/15#justinreviews3

When I look at Flight, I am struck by how many creator bios reveal work in animation and it definitely comes across in their work. Pieces like Blip Pop by Ryan Sias, The Flying Bride by Giuseppe Ferrario, or La Sonadora by Joana Carneiro all made me feel as if I was watching Saturday morning cartoons. This is not negative in and of itself, but it's really not what I want from a comic book anthology.


So what? Comics with an obvious animation theme arent really comics? Seems kinda harsh.
Steve.
