Lucky Lucy 1…..Time to RANT Again!!!!!!

by Jerrie Lee


This time I rant(or review…whatever you wanna call it…I prefer to say RANT!)

about a fun new new release by Molly Whipple….Lucky Lucy (issue one)

Molly Whipple describes Luck Lucy as follows…

”After a pampered early life Lucy’s father died. Orphan Lucy ran off to join the circus where she learned a lot about the school of hard knocks as well a lot of special skills, both good and bad. “Lucky” Lucy Tilton isn’t just an acrobat and escape artiste extraordinaire, she’s secretly the thief better known as “Mouse.”

Nice thing…she’s an escape artist…BAD thing…Baby girl is ALSO a thief! A thief who doesnt know when to quit, it seems.

Ms. Whipple is a writer of many fun comics series, all of her books are cool…what happens in ONE…leads to the next title…such as the case with her latest release….Lucky Lucy ! The action for Lucy continues from Dark Domme issue two, where good ol Lucy here was caught pick pocketing guests at the Dark Domme’s party. (Molly’s number one bad girl…now…this chick is world re known for being some one NOT to mess with…why the hell would you go to her party…of ALL people…and start picking pockets? Only Lucy would think she could do that crap, and get away with it…)her little butt was caught ,and  made into a friggin slave! At the end of that book…Looked liked Lucy’s goose was friggin COOKED!!!!

HOLD ON DUDE!   Enter…Lucky Lucy one! That picks up where Domme two left off…Good ol Possum(another of Molly’s nefarious characters…Molly refers to him as the ultimate bastard…after following him in Molly’s various books…I agree with that…the Bastid!) Dumps  Lucky Lucy into a swamp(LUCKY? being dumped in a swamp…is lucky? ummm…well…depends on your point of view I guess…) How did she get into that predicament, you ask? HEY! I cant tell you EVERYTHING!!!! You have to get Dark Domme one ,and two to see for your selves! Trust me…its fun reading.

WELL!!!!  I’ll be a  biscuit on a plate with gravy…she IS Lucky after girl survives that near death experience…and she’s  more mad than a hive of bees with a bear’s paw sticking in it!  Lucy decides…”ok…OK! I WANT PAY BACK!!!!!!!! ”And Lucy goes on the ultimate pay back mission..Baby girl made a list…and shes getting them back! If your name is on her list…well…um…sucks to be YOU

Molly delivers with this new offering what she ALWAYS delivers in her various series…

Great, fun, story telling…

Loaded with both action and humor

oh! and some nice NSFW content(BOOBS dude! you were warned!)

not to mention some AWESOME art work from Piotr Czaplarski. fantastic art all the way through this fun

action fest.

I have been a fan of Molly Whipple’s work for a long time. and I have all of her various books. This latest offering is one of her BEST in my humble opinion. If you like fun, action stories, you need to check this one out. Lucky Lucy is a fun character, and its great watching her get into trouble, and wondering if she can get out of the mess she made for herself.

If you want the WHOLE story…also get Dark Domme 1&2….you dont NEED them to enjoy Lucky Lucy 1…but you see what little mouse did to get into the mess that led to Lucky Lucy 1….

either way…Lucky Lucy 1 is a book you need to read!!!! get it…GET IT!!!!!

Molly Whipple’s  Books are available at drivethru comics

If you have a Deviant Art account…check out her page at deviant art! keep up to date of her next project(shes got a LOT of fun stuff coming! STAY Informed!) her page is loaded with her characters, humor, all kinds of fun stuff!

her awesome artist for Lucky Lucy1…Piotr Czaplarski, has a Deviant art page as well…if you have an account there  you can see more of his work

Dragon Trio.

The Jay is BACK! YES!!!! with a rant about another series that you (Yes…YOU!) should be reading…….by Winston Jordon (Ink Pot Comics).
An evil organization called the Black Dragon  is reigning terror and trying to control everything…In their way? Three vigilantes called The Dragon Trio.
This is another of those series that grabbed me right from the beginning, when its creator, Winston Jordon (um…you DO know who Winston Jordon IS…don’t you? He’s been a main stay at the ICC Facebook page for years…posting his fantastic art!!! he’s also one of this website’s editors!). Why did this series grab me? Intelligent writing. well defined characters. Martial arts intrigue and action!!!
This series has it all. I am an Old Schooler…I always followed Martial arts movies that not only had action…but were well written. Like Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon… Dragon Trio is right up there as far as I am concerned. you got characters you care about, and want to follow…can the Trio brothers put an end to The Black Dragon crime empire? heh…let me tell you…I been here since issue one, folks…It isn’t going to be easy. get the books…you’ll see what I mean…one MAIN reason it wont be easy? The Black Dragon captain…Midora.
Midora is a mysterious assassin of Chinese descent…who the other Japanese crime captains don’t like…heh…well…I wont tell you HOW…but they respect her pretty damned quick…Midora is a bad ass lady…ok?  I fell in love with her right from the beginning…Winston’s action pack art has her kicking ass and taking names. and she isn’t nice about it (OMG I love this chick…she’s who she is…and she isn’t apologizing for it!!!!)

Midora has become a very popular character on the ICC Facebook site… tons of folks have posted fan art about her on the FB page…what does that tell you? That this series is a must read….that the characters and writing PULL you right in!!!! I sit on the edge of my seat…waiting for the next Dragon Trio series news…so I can go grab the newest issue soon as it’s available!!!!

Midora has branched out…into two action packed spin off books….The Wind and the Wolf…where she meets and battles another  badass ICC woman…NightWolf. (YES…I have that one too. that book is a LESSON in drawing fight scenes, ok? not to mention yet another compelling story)

You probably want want me to spill on the details of each issue…well…I think I did…

Great compelling crime drama…

Well defined characters….

Fantastic action….

Great art all the way through (courtesy of Winston Jordon)

If I tell you TOO much…you wont buy it! I got my copies…YOU GO GET YOURS!!!!!!!!

I am a big fan. I even have dolls of the Three Dragon Trio Brothers, and Midora.

Seriously…if you’re not following this…you are missing out on a fantastic series. Get it.

The Character Midora ALONE is enough reason to follow this…and NOT just because she’s sexy…this woman…is just dope. So dope she even branched out into a spin off book.

Dragon Trio is available at Ink Pot Comics  (Ink Pot’s FaceBook pg)    (Ink Pot’s website)

Go there! Get those Books…it’s one of the best series…you’re not reading…

If you do read it…I  bow before you…um…I call dibs on Midora….I was her fan first.

Hi! Jays Corner is HERE!!!!

by Jerrie Lee

Hi…Jerrie here…Jay to my friends. Welcome to my new review spot…I like blogging about comics I am absolutely STOKED about!!!!! Ya hear me…STOKED! (Um…that picture isn’t me, by the way, but that’s what I’m using to represent me. it was made by Pam Harrison of one of my comic characters. Pretend it’s me. I AM a big black guy that smokes an occasional stogie…so the picture isn’t that far off to the real Jay.)

I will be going through my collection of independent comics…and I got a lot…talking about the series, why I love them. Hopefully I can get an interview with the creator on his /her thoughts about their work…hopefully, you’ll go out there and cop a copy of their comic for yourself (You can’t have my copy…GET YOUR OWN!!!!).

I meant to do this years ago.  My wife got sick,  and things went crazy. I just didn’t have the time, or the desire, really, with all that was  going on in my life at that time.

But…BUT!!!! Now…Things are better, and I’ve been given a new chance to blog here about great independent series…that you guys NEED to be reading!!!!! So…get ready… JAY IS HERE!!!!!


A few things….

1…My reviews are totally biased…if I like it…I write about it. I don’t talk about work I don’t like. I HATE it when reviewers trash folks’ work. What’s the point? I don’t read stuff I don’t like…and not only that…whether I like it or not…that artist worked HARD on their book. Hours. Days. Just because I don’t like it…doesn’t mean it isn’t good work. I am a guy with an opinion. That’s it. Others may love what I hate…and hate what I love. I’d rather spend my time ranting on stuff I love and want others to check out!

2…If you submit a comic to me…and I don’t talk about it…please don’t be offended…I have three years back log on ICC books  I wanna rant about. If I like yours…I WILL get to yours. I promise it will make its way into my numerous rants.

3…I like doughnuts. It has nothing to do with comic reviews…um…just thought I’d throw that out there…

The Talent is out there, we all have it. Let’s share it and also you can visit us on the web at Be sure to also visit our YouTube channel. Same rules apply as in the Independent Creators Connection Facebook group: If it’s a bad review, keep it constructive and polite. No bashing, no hate speech either in the review or the comments sections.
Why Review? To InformTo draw attention to good books — especially if they’re not as well-known as they should be — and to warn people away from bad ones. Although writing a bad review is easier than writing a good one, the best reviewers spend more time talking about good books than bad. It’s more productive in the long run, too.To Educate – To analyze the craft of creating a comic. To dissect how a good comic works or explain why a bad one doesn’t. To teach readers what lettering adds to a comic, or how panel layouts help or hinder the story, or any of a myriad other skills necessary to build a good comic book.To CommunicateTo start discussion or provide an alternative point of view. Beware, though, this may work against writing a good review, if the reviewer winds up discussing plot and characters too fannishly just to get responses. Also, reviewers shouldn’t cop an attitude just to get noticed. Attitude is cheap; content is rare.

Bounce! By Chuck DragonBlack Collins

To Develop Craft – To learn discipline and improve one’s writing and thinking.

To Get Free Stuff – If you’re good, and consistent, and build an audience, people may want to give you material in the hopes you will talk about it. However, it’s a mixed blessing: it’s great to get a chance to check out something you wouldn’t have bought for yourself, but review copies are a large responsibility, and the best material isn’t generally given away, so you’ll find a big range of quality in what you get (particularly if you’re starting out). For more on this topic, see How to Get Review Copies.

To Be Discovered – Please note that this is a bad idea, but some reviewers have this as a goal. Building a name for oneself cuts both ways; for everyone impressed by the comments (or opinions), there will be someone who takes it personally and holds a grudge. Plus, writing for comics is a different skill from writing about comics, so an aspiring creator had better be working on developing both abilities.
Comics journalism isn’t taken seriously in part because of this reason. It’s seen as a stepping stone instead of a craft in itself. Some professionals accuse critics of being jealous… and some critics are, but there are many more who aren’t. Many things are easier for competent writers to do instead of reviewing, and with most of them they’ll be better respected and maybe even paid. The medium needs intelligent criticism to continue growing and be taken more seriously.

Writing a Good Review: What to Cover

Ideally, reviews should be written of complete stories, chunks that provide a satisfying experience to a reader. Possibilities include graphic novels, trade paperbacks, complete miniseries, single-issue stories, and complete story arcs within a continuing series.

Reviewers covering monthly comics piecemeal should avoid assuming everyone read the previous issue. Coming up with something new to say about chapter 3 of 6 after reviewing parts 1 and 2 is challenging, but it can be done. Also, a reviewer might be criticized for not waiting until the end of the story to criticize it (especially if the comments are negative). It’s perfectly valid to review anything that’s offered for sale to the public, but it’s hard to evaluate the overall story without an ending.

Reviews should express an opinion about a work and say something interesting and unique. Online reviews should not go on longer than the reader wants to scroll. Also, short paragraphs are better; densely packed text can look daunting and unreadable on a computer screen.
What to Write

Pick a format and style and use them consistently. Include all the relevant pieces of information (creators, dates, titles) to identify the work being reviewed. Here’s one example:

COMIC TITLE: Subtitle (or #Issue Number(s))
Creator Credits, as printed in the work, one per line
US release date, if known, or cover date, or year of publication
Publisher, format (page count, binding, color or black-and-white, whether digital), price

[And don’t forget the website link to show people where to buy the comic. –Editor]

Tell readers something of what the comic is about, but keep it brief, and use spoilers as sparingly as possible. The plot of many standard-length comics can be summed up in a sentence or two. It may on occasion be impossible to discuss a story without revealing elements of it, but that should be a rare occurrence. Recommendations for or against a work should be based on the reviewer’s opinions and criteria, not the events of the story. A reader should be given enough information to determine whether or not she would find the comic interesting without her reading experience being ruined.

In the main body of the review, a reviewer should discuss what she liked and what she didn’t in regards to writing, art, plot, character representation, storytelling, and entertainment value. Comments should be balanced; there is always at least one thing in any comic that was well-done, and one thing that could be improved. Give examples. The reader should understand the basis for the reviewer’s opinions. I shouldn’t need to say this, but avoid personal remarks. Discuss the work, not the creator.

All comic reviews should contain art criticism; one doesn’t have to be an artist to describe what one sees and give opinions on it. Do items and characters look like what they’re supposed to be? Do the panels flow smoothly, supporting the story? Is the reader’s eye led in the right direction by the layout? Do the word balloons fit into the composition? Think about how the words and pictures work together to create the story. A reviewer who doesn’t cover both art and text is reviewing a plot, not a comic.

The tone should be informed and intelligent, but not superior. Readers may be ignorant of the work, but they aren’t stupid. Keep it friendly and entertaining. Readers are interested in the reviewer’s reactions and opinions, and some personal information may be necessary to understand the reviewer’s perspective (if she’s never read a comic in that genre before, for example, or if she previously worked with the writer), but reviews are not about name-dropping or unrelated life anecdotes.

Ratings are not mandatory. Some critics sum up their reviews with one, but other people find them unnecessarily simplistic. Regardless, they should match the comments given. The reader shouldn’t be left wondering why the rating is higher or lower than the rest of the review suggests. The scale should also be obvious and understandable, and the rankings should be consistent across reviews.

Try hard to get an overview of the entire medium. While it’s economically understandable that hobby reviewers can’t afford to spend that much money, reviewers who stick only with what they’ve already decided to buy are doing their readers (and themselves) a disservice. Be creative in finding ways to expand coverage. Many reviewers cut deals with their local shops to borrow comics in order to read more widely, for instance. Reviewers also owe it to their readers to be familiar with the best-known and -respected works of the medium (not just the superhero genre).

Given the bizarre nature of the comics industry, be sure to include information on how to obtain the book at the end of the review. If it’s a small press title, include the publisher contact address and/or website. If someone wants to read the reviewed book, let her know how. Also, be sure to state whether you received the comic for free for review.

Risks of Reviewing

Just because someone’s working in comics as a professional doesn’t mean they’ll have a professional attitude regarding criticism. People who should know better sometimes take comments purely about their work personally and respond on a personal level. No one’s handing out maturity with comic book work; sometimes a reviewer has to laugh and move on. In return, the critic’s behavior must be mature enough that people aren’t laughing at her, either.

There are also many people out there who identify too closely with the published work. With creators, at least it’s understandable; the fans, though, can be scary, especially the ones who take a negative comment on the latest superhero book as a personal attack. If fans become too pushy or threatening, take necessary precautions, such as using a post office box instead of a home address for review copy submissions.

Critics have to put up with being evaluated and reviewed themselves. No matter how bulletproof a review (in terms of pointing out flaws with copious examples; keeping the discussion about the work, not the creative team; and clarifying with terms like “in my opinion”), there will be immature people who will take a differing opinion as an excuse to question the critic’s intelligence, sex life, and general worth as a human being. Be prepared to ignore immature responses, no matter who they’re from.

On the other hand, don’t be one of those people who rank being right over being a decent human being. Keep the work in perspective. A bitter reviewer can be fun to read once or twice, but not long-term. People can be entertained by or find useful information from criticism even if they disagree.

Benefits of Reviewing

Everyone has their own list, but mine includes the intellectual joy of figuring out why I liked or disliked something, and the pleasure of expressing it well. I’ve met a lot of interesting people through comic fandom, and this is my way of giving something back.

Even if you disagree with me, please think about the issues I’ve raised. You may come to different conclusions, but you ought to be able to answer these questions:

  • What approach should reviewers take?
  • What’s their perspective?
  • What are their criteria for “good” and “bad”?
  • Are they able to distinguish “good” from “what I like”?

Reviewing is an art, like any other form of writing. Support the good, avoid the bad, and keep encouraging improvement.

Jay’s Reviews A Deviant Mind issue 19

by Jerrie Lee

2014-06-25-Page_11Ok…Hi. I’m Jerrie. I am here to give reviews of comics that you just have to read. At first…i was was going to do this particular review in comic form….But then…i got this advance copy of A Deviant Mind 19 from Pam Harrison. Can’t make a comic full of jokes about this issue. It’s too good for that…so I decided to write this review blog instead. Look folks, if you enjoy reading  good comics, with fantastic characterization….A Deviant Mind issue 19 is the comic for you.  The series itself is about a Lady named Tara…Tara is a woman trying to regain her lost memory….but this issue…issue 19…focuses on one of the series supporting characters…Najimi.

Najimi started off in this series basically as a brat, and pain in Tara’s (the main series’s protagonist) butt.  But as the series progressed..Najimi has come into her own….in issue 19…this girl REALLY comes into her own… Folks, this issue has some of the best writing this series has produced so far. I love this series. It’s great sci-fi…great characters….great writing…but this issue…issue 19….folks…if there is only ONE issue of A Deviant Mind you buy…get this one. If you like reading awesome stories…get this one….you like great 3D art to go with your awesome story reading…get this one. And after you do it…go to the A Deviant Mind Website…catch up on the best Sci-Fi series you’re not reading…and if you’re one of the series fans like I am (I own EVERY issue of this series) You already know what I’m blogging about…ok?
