Gosh dang it…I have a review of Jax Epoch and the Quicken Forbidden that I was going to post once I, well, finished writing it, and then Ringwood has to go and put up a review that about ten times better than the one I was working on. I am happy to note that he picked up the same slight connection to another cartoonist that I did (look in the comments section of that review to see what I mean), but that means I have to cook up something drastically different for my eventual review. Rats.

Well, here’s a short review until I can come up with somthing better…the book’s good. Reminds me a bit of independent comics of the early-to-mid-80s. It would fit side-by-side on the rack with The Realm, Trollords, and Zot!. The heroine, the very oddly named Jax Epoch, is smart and nuanced, the art is clear and straightforward, making the crazy events in the story easy to follow, and I don’t think I’ve seen character motivation boiled down as succinctly as this: “Can’t explain, better run!” I liked it, Ringwood liked it, and you’d better like it too, or Ringwood and I will team up and chase you down.

So there you go.
