Mr Wombat reviews

Silent Hill: Dying inside & Silent Hill: Three Bloody Tales. (Comics)

This review will take the form of the stream of consciousness that meandered through my brain when I finished them both:

"Jesus fucking Christ, why do I even fucking bother taking a chance on these things any more? Fucking X Men is better than this tedious bullshit attempt at being intelligent. Comic publishers are worried that illegal downloads are hurting sales? Well they can stop producing bollocks like this, clone Warren Ellis and Mike Mignola, shoot Mark Millar in the nuts and break his fingers, and kill the next ten indie cunts who thinks 'edgy' means 'I don't have to make an ounce of fucking sense' and hang their corpses up as a warning to those pseudo intelligent artsy fucks. If they could put Alan Moore's bullshit machine [1] on mute while they're at it I'd be grateful too. I'm going to start going to comic conventions so I can meet Scott Ciencin in the fucking throat"

Video game adaptations make you violent.

One disjointed mess out of ten disjointed messes.

[1] Don't get me wrong - great writer but so far up his own arse he's created a bollocks singularity.

These are... comics?

Using a loose definition of the word, yes. See, I define "Comic" as something that entertains in some sense. These are a series of pictures with word balloons so.. yes, in a sense they are comics but not in any sense I understand.

Your point stands, I should mention that before going off on one. I changed the first line.

So I shouldn't buy them, then?

Not unless you thrive on pain and disappointment.

I read them again last night to make sure I wasn't being dense when I read it first (sometimes the bus isn't the best place to concentrate on something) and I still think that this is the worst thing ever. Then I read "Nextwave - Agents of H.A.T.E" and I was happy again. The sad irony here is that I paid money for Silent Hill but downloaded Nextwave, I'm going to sell those Silent Hill comics so I can buy Nextwave.

sadness, i loved the first game. the movie was mostly boring but had a LOT of really cool over the top gore. squish.

i may have to find the comics so i can gauge their eye-gougingness for my own self.
