Lazarus Volume 1 TP by Greg Rucka
Lazarus Volume 1 TP by Greg Rucka
Greg Rucka is so talented, and I think his best work is when he's writing his own characters. He is especially great at writing political potboilers and strong female characters...Lazarus has both. It has a great premise and features a really strong female character lead (Forever "Eve" Carlyle) and it is up there with his best stuff (check out Rucka's Queen and Country, Whiteout, his Atticus Kodiak books).

What I liked:
-Rucka and Lark, together again, and better than ever
-Great,… Read more

Berserk: The Golden Age Arc II - The Battle for Do&hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Orion Acaba
I reviewed and gave the first release 5 stars, but didn't like this one as much.

The action is bloody and great, and there is a huge body count in this episode. The bad guys getting wasted by Guts is really why I watch Berserk and the famous 100 man battle didn't disappoint. However... there is a graphic sex scene that I thought was unnecessarily drawn out and made me feel a tad uncomfortable and a ballroom scene that was also a bit long. These two scenes, especially the sex scene, detracted from the show overall, in my opinion and I feel they could have shortened these and instead added some additional scene from the original series and manga that were left out (e.g. Griffith… Read more
