Cyblade/Shi: The Battle for Independents

Continues in Shi/Cyblade: The Battle for Independents

(From the Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Steamin’ babe-on-babe action from comics’ hottest heroines. Nah, only kidding. It’s actually a pompous allegory about creative little guys fighting against a huge evil out to destroy their individuality and, with it, the land of wonder. The creators’ hearts were in the right place, but the whole thing’s a terrible mish-mash, written by William Tucci and Gary Cohn and drawn by Tucci, Nelson Asencio and Jimmy Palmiotti. Shi and Cyblade don’t even do much. Along the way Cerebus, Fone Bone, Beanworld’s Mr. Spook and a host of other characters from better independent comics turn up. ~FJ
