REVIEW: Lot 13, #1
Steve Niles and Glenn Fabry bring an unlikely horror mini-series with lots of potential to DC with "Lot 13" #1.
Full review here.
Could not disagree with the reviewer more when he talks about the static nature of the art in the Lot 13 story. By definition, Fabry's art is all about movement and expression. He is up there with the very best in the industry and his art here flows the narrative on in very cinematic style. I have seen much of the later work to come and I think fans will be pleasantly surprised at the standard the art sets. The story also does not falter.
Uh, my bad. This was meant for another review that suggested Glenn's art was static, something that made me question this person's ability to appreciate good art when it's thrust in their face. So sorry 'bout that!

The first was when the wife said she was 36 and it was revealed their eldest daughter was 17, sure people have kids young but they don't usually have their own place when they do. I mean I guess she could be lieing about her age, but really I shouldn't have to think about that. Then there's the we've been waiting 30 years for this house" line, that makes zero sense no matter how you slice it. But the big wtf moment is hitting a kid in the road, seeing his guts all over the truck and then being totally cool when it suddenly vanishes and an apartment building shows up out of no where.
I might give it another issue, but if its more of the same I won't be finishing the story.
