Talk About it Tuesday / Veneration Z

I really got into this comic serial for a few reasons. #1, it reminds me of Shonen Jump comics to some extent. It kind of parallels shows like Naruto, for example. #2, it has a multilayered plot, exposing the tensions between the clans in the country and the burden of unpleasant pasts as the underlying thread tugging at the characters' actions. #3 It reads pretty well for teens but is interesting enough for adults as well. 

It's a pity it's on hiatus right now, but when I talked to the company, they said it would return after Slum Rebel finishes. However, there are 22 issues of this series to dig into. And while it may drag with the power leveling and backstory at times, it does make for an exciting read.  

Head to head, it wouldn't beat Is'nana the Were-spider or Sword of the Free. But it would beat Blue Beetle (probably not in the art department). Of course if they had DC money, Chon Chon could probably put out something that can beat Blue Beetle.  

Brian dubbed today's episode since my throat was a bit sore from this never-ending cold. I should get him to do the Screen Junkies "honest trailers" voice again.
