Review: Rachel Rising #27

RACHEL RISING #27 Terry Moore (writer & artist)  BW • 24 pages • $3.99 Aunt Johnny & Earl discover they have a new serial killer on the loose, while Rachel spreads the word around town that she was murdered and she is looking for the man responsible! And to make it a perfect day, Zoe runs into an old classmate. REVIEW: I am a big fan of Strangers In Paradise, but I have no idea why I was so hesitant to pick up this title. I had some trouble getting into Echo, so that might have had me hesitant to pick up this title at a time when buying new comics was a luxury. Now that I can afford to buy comics, I tend to try out new things from time to time. After immediately remembering how much I liked SiP, I decided to give this, which I knew to be closer in tone to that series than Echo, a try.

Reviews of Old Comics: Starstream #3

STARSTREAM #3 1976 No Spoilers this week, as this is an anthology published by Whitman in 1976.  I seem to recall that my original copies were purchased at a discount store (think K-Mart-ish) when I was five or six in a pack of 3. That means to get all four issues of this series, I must've ended up with multiples of something. The premise of the anthology is that there are comic adaptations of science fiction short stories, with an occassional original thrown in. The caliber of artists is quite good for the most part, with only few exceptions. At another time, I may cover the other issues, but I have a reason for getting to this one first. Also, I used the synopsis for the April Fool's entry, What If #34. Again, no spoilers, since for the summary, I'm just going to copy from the contents page.
