    Coin Operated 183: The Few

    Coin Operated 183: The Few

    This weeks episode is brought by the word The Few.

    We talk about how much hell it was for people to try and obtain the Pre-Order for the Super NES Classic. The Few of them that were available were made difficult to obtain because of the Bots and the random release time. Best Buy and Amazon did it in the wee hours of the morning and the other around 1pm EST. ToysRUs did no pre orders and is doing first come first serve.

    The next thing that was limited in our neck of the woods were eclipse glasses. These are needed to see the once in a lifetime event of a total eclipse. We tried to secure one and sadly had to bum some off of people to get the this eclipse. Orlando only got a partial eclipse. So at least we got that going for us.

    We talk about one of the Few new characters that were announced for Injustice 2 and Brian loves their intro video. Its a Dark Horse Character with the hand of Hell.

    Review time!

    Brian reviews The Few from Image comics(https://imagecomics.com/comics/series/the-few):

    The Few opens up with a woman running through the woods bleeding while holding a baby in her arms wearing a gas mask. This opening spread sets the overall tone of the book and shows that nothing is going to be normal.

    Beyond the concept image of Eden Hall holding a baby, The Few is another dystonia future we have seen before from multiple different comics that goes in a circle with no clear focus or idea and is a bland story from the art to the words. It kept jumping around with the theme and didn’t help set overall tone of development for the characters.

    Sadly this comic failed to find a voice and have the great characters potential fall because of lack of execution on their development and style.

    Score for The Few:

    4 out of 10

          We Be Geeks Review: The Zone Continuum

          We Be Geeks Review: The Zone Continuum

          It is my honor and pleasure to bring you this review. It has been a while and I have been so busy with life away from the site and show that this review is long overdue. This review marks the return of The Zone Continuum series from multi talented artist Bruce Zick. The original Zone Continuum published by Caliber Comics in 1992. Zick rebooted the series in 2006 as a web comic for Komikwerks. The series has now returned in the form of an all-new graphic novel expanding on Zick’s previous work.

          Before delving into this comic, I would recommend highly checking out the forward and the glossary at the end of the book. This will make understanding all the unusual names easier and give you a general idea of what is going on, and therefore reading the comic more enjoyable.

          Set in a world high above the surface, The Zone Continuum takes to the rooftops above New York City. Hidden from human eyes by ancient technology, the Dar struggle to live in a world separated by extra-dimensional Zones. This and the ravaging by the humans with the pollution they created. The Dar once walked among the humans but with advancements in human technology, their very survival has been threatened. Radiation from satellites and other human tech have made the planet toxic, causing the Zones to collapse and give rise to monstrous entities. These Zones exist only in the sky and are the only safe haven for the Dar.

          The Zone Continuum highlights not just  the damage being done to the environment but also deals with the ravages of isolation and the effects each of our actions and decisions can have, whether we know it or not, on others. As humans wage their wars and continue to pollute the Earth, their harm causes not only ill effects on  the planet but also puts the very existence of the Dar in peril. The shrinking zones have put the relationship between Talon and Paris is a peril. The pain of their separation is two-fold – not only felt by them being apart but also by the physical pain they must endure when they try to reach each other by breaching the Zones they inhabit.

          The Zone Continuum is great a read as a showcase of Bruce Zick’s highly impressive art style developed from his years of experience in both the animation and comic industry, and a great sci-fi comic to boot.

          From the art deco look and the frail love story, I highly recommend picking up this book at places like amazon.com or from the Dark Horse shop.

This man from San Diego is thrown back in time 700 years in a psychedelic journey to heart of of the Aztec Empire.
