Hachigan, Jennifer – Lore #7


Lore #7

Upon further review (i.e. I’ve read one more issue), it looks like this series is a lot of fun. Put out a graphic novel, that’s what I say. The reviews at the start of the book of past issues are nice, but this is definitely the kind of thing that would be much better if it was read in chunks. I’ve read it small bits and it’s still a lot of fun. This one is mostly about a mysterious man who’s hunting vampires (I think) and Lore, the telekinetic werewolf finally meeting. Actually, that happens at the end, but the rest of it is about them going about their business. Great dialogue, a lot more of the story is making sense to me now, which brings me back to my whole “graphic novel” point. If you’re going to check this out you should get a few in a row just to get a feel for what’s going on, but I definitely think (after reading a couple) that it’s worth checking out. In a world where comics were published regularly I think this would be picked up in a heartbeat. Contact info is up there, check it out…

Hachigan, Jennifer – Lore #6


Lore #6

The problem with continuing series is that I have real basis to review except on its own, and often it doesn’t make much sense on its own. Let’s see here, there’s a robot, a telekinetic werewolf (maybe), a woman who’s also a cat… and most of them spend the day chatting around a lunch table. The dialogue seemed natural and funny at times, which is starting to become rare in some of these random SPACE comics I’ve been reading. The art is good, if simple and a bit lazy (hardly any backgrounds anywhere, for one thing). I didn’t see much happen but this seems like it would be a nice, fun little comic about everyday things with extraordinary people and creatures wandering around. Maybe the big story is stupid, but if it isn’t this would at the very least be a fun thing to check out. Go to her website to see what she has available (ten issues of this as of 5/1/02) or just send her an e-mail and chat with her. Here, look at this and see what you think.
