08/01/2004 Archived Entry: "Comics review: Specwar"


Not exactly reviewed by Ginger Mayerson

Sometimes, rarely, but sometimes I come across something that simply defies Mayersonization and this time, it's SpecWar. Although I did like #8 (Pirates!), I just couldn't connect enough with this comic to say, well, anything about it.

I originally thought it would be like the website and be about, y'know, speculative warfare, but it's not. I find the DARPA website rather scary; I'm a secretary for a medical researcher so some of the concepts at DARPA are familiar, but designed to kill, not heal. However, our lab is applying for a DoD grant in medicine (the healing kind) and the online submission site is possibly even more scary than the DARPA site. Leave it to the DoD... oh never mind.

Anyway, these comics (#2-8) are very well drawn and produced and even though I didn't get it, I'm sending them to another J LHLS reviewer who might get it. I do have a thought on the next comic convention Mr. Lauria (who was very charming to me) attends, I think he might spruce up his booth or table with camouflage or bunting or something; I recall it being rather plain. He might also see if the military will lend him some guys and gals in uniform to talk to the potential customers. I mean, if he's at CCSD next year, there's more military around there than you can shake a stick at.
