Atomic Moo Graphic Novel Review of Death

9781401247164_p0_v2_s260x420

Recently released through Vertigo Comics is the definitive collection of Death stories straight from the pages of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman. This collection includes an introduction from long time Sandman fan, Tori Amos,Death_Samp5 then kicks off with Death stories The sound of her Wings, A Winters Tail, and facade. The novel also includes Death: The High Cost of Living, Death: The Time of Your Life, as well as the story Death and Venice and Endless Nights. There are also the short stories The Wheel and Death Talks About Life and the graphic novel finishes with a gallery of Death portraits from the artistic talents of Brian Bolland, Jeff Smith (Bone), Chris Bachalo, and many more.

Up until reading this collection I couldn’t claim to be a fan of Sandman or any of the comic’s associated characters. It’s not that I don’t like Neil Gaiman stories (hell, American Gods has to be somewhere in my top 10 of “all time favorite reads” if I had such a top 10…), because I do.Death It’s just Sandman is something I never picked up as a teenager. Which really fills me with a lot of regret because these stories are wonderful. Yeah, on the surface, I wouldn’t think I’d enjoy any story where Death is a sort of upbeat goth chick/hipster from the ’90′s… but I did. These stories are thoughtful and, while still being comics, deal with strong emotions of loss, pain, or regret. Yet at the same time they are humorous, insightful, and even adventurous. They’re beautifully illustrated tales that have a unique “Gaiman” quirkiness that lets you enjoy people dying. Sometimes painfully. I think one of my favorite sets of stories is Death: The High Cost of Living, where Death has taken human form for a day and adventures around New York with a suicidal teenage companion. Very much not the type of comic I go looking for (what with the lack of scantly clad women, explosions, and a Star Destroyer or two), but I thought it was fun in it’s own weird magic sort of way. Death is almost sort of vulnerable in this one as she, along with Sexton Furnival (great name), try and escape a mad man hell bent of capturing her. The story also includes the character Mad Hettie who I enjoyed very much. Overall, I had a lot of fun with this collection of comics and I encourage other Death/Sandman newbies to give it a try.

Death by Neil Gaiman can be found in bookstores now or online at Vertigo Comics. I’ve posted a small sample of images below, but the graphic novel is so much more than this. Go get a copy and enjoy the hell out of it! Now, excuse me while I go put on a flannel shirt, and my Doc Martin boots, and go listen to my Nevermind cassette.

Atomic Moo Book Review of The Adjacent!

Priest-Adjacent

There is a duel nature to adjacency. According to award winning author Christopher Priest’s new novel, The Adjacent, adjacency is a sort of “misdirection” used by stage magicians to make the secret actions of the performer invisible to the audience. 23419Two elements, that may appear similar, are used simultaneously, but one is a decoy deployed to enthrall the audience while the unnoticed performer can make the trick work. This duplicitous nature exists not only inside the narrative of The Adjacent, but also describes the actual tone of the book as well. The Adjacent is both astoundingly good and also amazingly frustrating! It is rich, engaging storytelling, but at the same time unfulfilling. In a story where theoretical (quantum) physics has had a devastating effect on a future world, Priest leaps readers back and forth through time via a series of short, somewhat related, tales, with the expectation of a grand denouement, that never quiet pays off.

Atomic Moo Shows You Where To Stick It… With Cool Promo Buttons!

Atomic_Moo_Boxes_032014

Okay, so most other sites don’t make any big deal about the SWAG they produce to give away, but this is our SWAG! Actually, it’s our first attempt at making Atomic Moo promotional stuff, and I (and my totally biased opinion) think they turned out great! The 1 and 1/4 inch buttons were designed by Atomic Moo’s resident graphic artist, Chudd. You can see more of Chudd’s nerdtastic work on his Deviant Art page. Anyways, check out more images of the promo buttons below and let us know what you think!
