The Night of the Comic Book Catch-Up: Finally Read The Island No. 1-3 Part One

Good freaking lord it took me long enough to read The Island huh? I’ve had issues 1-3 chilling in my pile for awhile and today I finally got to reading them all. I’ll say this for it that the concept is so fun and I can easily say I was never bored at any point in the issue. When Brandon Graham and Emma Rios are the ones heading this with other talents doing work in the issue, yeah you’re going to get a good time. Out of the first two issues I would say Brandon Graham, Emma Rios, and Simon Roy had my favorite stories. I really liked Kelly Sue DeConnick’s text piece in #1, so sweet and powerful. They were all so crazy different but interesting and captivated me the entire time. There really wasn’t a bad story in the lot though so I like that about The Island that overall it has a lot of variety. I say Issue 3 had my favorite mix of stories, so many cool creators I got introduced to here, I loved it to death!

While LUDROE’s piece wasn’t my favorite of the three issues, there is so much energy that I can’t hate it. Like I said there is nothing in the three issues of The Island. Though #3 as I said in the last paragraph fired on all cylinders story wise. I’m going to end up having to detail further my thoughts on The Island later as I think I’m finding I have more to say on it than even I imagined even for the Comic Book Catch-Up pieces here. Keep an eye out as there could be a more detailed look at more of this series to come. As I really am digging this series, likely it’ll end up on my pull list at my comic store officially when I get there this week. I want to support a series like this so by golly that’s what I aim to do with The Island from here on out.

Pretty much expect a much more detailed thought process on The Island later as I really do want to talk this up more. So hey consider this part one of a larger adventure into The Island. It is my blog and I make the rules! I am a wild and crazy kind of guy like that. Look forward to more about The Island to come, probably in the next blog. Till then! Thanks for reading.
