Hellshock: The Definitive Edition (Hellshock Tp) ebook

by Jae Lee


Hellshock: The Definitive. has been added to your Cart. Jae Lee sure knew how to drive people crazy. He was always late in the 90's (and is frequently late this decade as well) and his HELLSHOCK was notorious for lateness.

Hellshock: The Definitive. The first series was decently written and expertly illustrated. The second series was canceled because Lee just couldn't meet a deadline. This Hardcover release sort of wraps up the second mini-series with an epilogue like finish that uses some interesting art and storytelling, but it feels rushed and somewhat tacked on. No doubt that Lee had other intentions at the time.

Dynamic Forces worked directly with Image Comics and Jae Lee to bring fans this much anticipated collection with plenty of special extras. Quoted Nick Barrucci, We apologize to the retailers and fans that this took longer to release than originally thought. Jae's Hellshock is the most personal story he has told, and it needed to be perfect before being released. This took longer than expected, especially since Jae wanted the ending to be worth the wait.

Jae Lee sure knew how to drive people crazy. He was always late in the 90's (and is frequently late this decade as well) and his HELLSHOCK was notorious for lateness. The first series was decently written and expertly illustrated. The second series was canceled because Lee just couldn't meet a deadline. He was months late.

This Hardcover release sort of wraps up the second mini-series with an epilogue like finish that uses some interesting art and storytelling, but it feels rushed and somewhat tacked on. No doubt that Lee had other intentions at the time.

The extras at the end are quite interesting, but the retail price for this release is way out of line for such a short work. Had it been oversized (allowing you to get closer to the art) I would say pay full retail. But it is not, so try and get it at a discount.

I waited more than 5 years to read the last chapter of this book, in the mean time i read
the previous hellshock, so my expectations were something of angelical proportions
and...it went through a inside-psychological -projective story, (remeber the
dissapointment of the final chapters of Evangelion? something like that...not what i expected.

But at least it ended, and i could complete the trilogy.

Not just psychological, but psychiatric - almost a reminder of those 1950s-ish comics featuring psychoanalysts. This is a well-drawn comic. The script holds together and moves with the right balance of explanation and mystery. Artwork carries the mood well, by turns claustrophobic, exultant, despairing, and grunge-noir. It has all the makings of a taut, exciting story.

The problem is that it just doesn't excite me. I know that others will differ, but the whole drama of mind-to-mind just falls flat when I read it. The "Fallen Pages" supplement at the end interests me more, even if the art isn't quite as polished, and I like the cover art (?) that follows.

If that "relationships" thing between doctor and locked-ward patient works for you, then have a blast. It's just not me.

4+ stars for the art and scripting, 1 for personal level of interest - and this is a personal review before it's anything else.
