Red Circle: The Web – mini review
Red Circle: The Web #1 - Review
Writer: J Michael Straczynski Artist: Roger Robinson
Well, after two pretty slow Red Circle One-Shots, this just got good. This was actually the issue I was least looking forward to because I thought the idea of the character was pretty stupid, i.e. a superhero who can be contacted via the internet to help solve your problems. Well I was wrong and this issue was great. It sets up some personal tragedy for our main character, features him finding out what a real hero needs to be and introduces a couple of cool arch enemies for the character. Our hero is a mega rich playboy whose invested his wealth into a hi tech command station and a costume that has more gadgets than Iron Man including increased strength and flight, just a shame about the colour scheme. This was a great one in done superhero outing and I hope the great work continues for the last Red Circle one shot featuring The Shield.
Addicted to comics but also love films and music. The idea for my blog is to be the first stop for comic book fans. I will do my best to update the blog everyday with comic news and previews and links to other great comic book sites. I will also of course post my opinons about these topics and try to post my own comic book reviews every week. I would love to hear from readers of the blog (i.e. you) what you think about my articles and the content. Lastly, I am a big music lover and movie fan so these topics will occasionally be blogged about and I would love suggestions about what to listen to and what films to see and what I should be reading. Cheers
