Buzzscope Reviews: 9/14/05

Remember when I used to post 3-5 of these every week? Between school cutting into my leisure reading time - what, you thought I got paid for this stuff? - and not wanting to review anything I've previously covered (with purely subjective exceptions), it's been pretty tough to write up the longer reviews recently. Add to that the likelihood that I'm going the "wait for the trade" route with a lot of Marvel/DC stuff, I'm guessing 1-2 Buzzscope reviews will become the norm for the time being. Speaking of...

Ronin Hood of the 47 Samurai GN
If Ronin Hood of the 47 Samurai represents the future of independent publishing – quality stories told in long form via a reasonably priced trade format – then that’s a future I can wholeheartedly get behind.

In other news, check out Buzzscope's newest contributor, Ronée Garcia Bourgeois, and her inflammatory "What A Girl Wants" column that already has the forums buzzing, and all she did was introduce herself! Not only is she an outspoken, comics-loving female, she's also the National Vice President and Public Relations Contact for the Friends of Lulu and a regular Industry Buzz contributor. Be sure to sign up for the Forums and get in on the fun!

Tomorrow...CBC Quickees, featuring Frank Miller flipping YOU the bird!

Yay Ronée!!

Did you have anything to do with that btw?

Nope. Not directly at least. Though when she turned out to be the FoL connection for Industry Buzz, I did have my fingers crossed that it'd lead to more involvement. Didn't expect her to get canne, um, boote, um, fir, ah, dismissed (?) from CX for it, but their loss is our gain!
