I’ve started doing some comic reviews for the Australian Comics Journal, a blog dedicated – as you might expect from the title – to news and reviews about Australian comics. It’s nice to be among such esteemed company, and also nice to have a venue within which to wax lyrical about ozcomics, so thanks to Gary Chaloner, ACJ’s founder and manager, for the opportunity.
My first cab – or perhaps submarine is a better mixed metaphor – off the rank is a review of 2011’s The Deep: Here Be Dragons, a comic about a family of underwater scientists, which was released back in 2011. The Deep’s been in the ozcomics news of late thanks to the recent announcement of its being licenced as an animated television series, so the review is kind of timely, although the good timing is just a coincidence, I have to admit.
Short version: I didn’t like it very much. You can read why over at ACJ.
