Just What The â€œDOCâ€ Ordered: A Review of CLiNT Magazine #2.1!
By: Chris "DOC" Bushley
The All-New, Freshly Scrubbed -- CLiNT!
You know that feeling you get when it's your first day back to work after a nice vacation? That "everything sucks" feeling? Well, that's exactly how my day began. My shared cubicle seemed too small, encroaching on my very life essence. M.E. Byron Brewer cranked out a ton of reviews in my absence, making the "assistant" part of Assistant Managing Editor seem glaringly relevant! And my favorite vending machine button in the world -F5 - the one that holds the glorious goodness of my daily Snickers bar was empty. "Everything sucks" would have been my mantra for the entirety of the day, if not for the mail delivery! There, amongst solicits and previews, sat my advanced copy of the magazine that shattered the mediocrity of the day — CLiNT 2.1! The best damn magazine you will read all month!
You think Mark Millar can only create some of the most explosive, irreverent, in your face comics in the world? Well, that's where your wrong, son! He can also bring you an informative, explosive, irreverent and in your face magazine as well! 100 pages of comics, interviews, previews and strips, await your grubby little fingers — and you won't want to put it down!
First, you are hit with a rousing interview with Mark Millar and his ideas regarding the Supercrooks and American Jesus movies! Tons of information regarding filming locales and script direction that you will only find within the pages of CLiNT, folks! Although you won't find any of Supercrooks director Nacho Vigalondo's ideas in the magazine, you can head on over to clintmag.com for an exclusive interview with him! Yeah, it's a shameless plug but you really should check it out!
Have you been drugged, kidnapped and sold to the highest bidder in a L.A.R.P.ing tournament in Kentucky? No? Than you have no excuse to have missed the premiere issues of Supercrooks and Secret Service! But if you have - sorry and welcome back - you have the chance to catch-up on two of the best books on the shelves today. That's right, you will find the entire first issues of Supercrooks and Secret Service reprinted inside this amazing mag! Where else can you find two complete best selling comics and tons of extra goodies in one place for one low price!
Speaking of extra goodies, you will get a 4 page preview of Lenore #4: Revenge of the Creeping, the next totally insane chapter of Rex Royd, the tracking of the real-life hero Clint and tons more! But, the best part is the CliNT exclusive Death Sentence comic! This tale follows three main characters that have been infected with an STD that will grant them super powers before they die from it! Totally fresh, engaging and crazy enough to grab you and make you question your weekly pull list! This is the future of comics and you can only get it here!
This is without a doubt, THE best magazine you will pick up this month! Regardless of all the other magazines you may, "read for the articles," this one won't give you carpal tunnel! Plus, you can actually leave it out on the coffee table and not get weird looks from your friends! As a matter of fact, this single magazine will probably raise your coolness factor through the roof! So, beware hep-cats and daddios — there is a blast of awesomeness hitting the racks!
Remember, "everything sucks" without a CLiNT in your hand!
