    One thought on “Xombi”

    1. It seems that this short run of Xombi is a continuation of a series first published in the 90s. And I think that somebody who had read the original Xombi would have gotten more out of this than I did. It was definitely written for an audience of returning fans, with references that I just couldn't understand. What I was able to follow was gloriously weird and inventive. A lot of comparisons to Morrison's Doom Patrol have been thrown around, and they're apt. There's a similar level of weirdness a [...]

    2. An impressive bit of crazy weirdness that's like Doom Patrol at its best. The sheer imaginative power of this comic is stunning, but even better, it manages to create a cohesive and believable weird world. I'll admit being a bit off-put at the start, when it really felt like I was thrown into the middle of things, but by the end I was loving this imaginative excursion and wanting to see more.The art is also tremendously good and moody.Overall, this could have been a brilliant series if it hadn't [...]

    3. There's something about the way this was written that kept making me think it wasn't the first collection of stories for this character/world. The characters kept mentioning past situations and people in a familiar way. And I'm still not sure if there were previous issues or not. But, I was sold on the story when I found out that there were pun-named fighting nuns (Nun the Less, Nun of the Above, Nun the Wiser).

    4. The story of one man rendered indestructible by nanotechnology, and the weirdness he encounters - at its best, Xombi feels like it could be a spin-off from Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol, in particular the Willoughby Kipling issues. Elsewhere, the plot and message can get a little conventional, especially in the more overt 'But what does it really mean to be.n?' wibbles. But, even then Frazer Irving enlivens it all with his usual ghoulish verve.

    5. This book is ace, i f you love the down right bizarre of Grant Morrison proportion then read this. The ideas in the book are fantastic and make a mundane world exciting, the art is awesome and its a shame it lasted only 6 issues. The expansion of the world of xombi is a must, hopefully it will make a return

    6. I loved this mini-series and wish it had sold well enough to continue or at least see a collection of the original Xombi series from the 90s.Wonderfully strange and inventive, full of fantastic ideas that may or may not be explained, this is one of my favorite comics from a mainstream publisher.

    7. When the New 52 was first announced, I was extremely excited--because I thought this was essentially 52 chances to experiment. Instead, the vast majority of the books were stale, date and unambitious, imo. The few things they got right were Batman, Animal Man, Swamp Thing and Wonder Woman (Kind of). Grant Morrison's Action Comics was kind of a flub. And then the rest of the titles? The only things memorable were Grayson, Midnighter, Prez and.Xombi. The blast of weirdness I was expecting was not [...]

    8. In this book, David Kim is a Xombi, a person “infected” with nanomachines that repair his body very quickly when it is injured. They are so fast and efficient, he can survive even horrific traumas, such as loosing an arm. In the normal course of David’s life, they repair the consequences of normal aging, so he is in essence close to immortal.In this story involving a major battle between good and evil, David is allied with several others with extraordinary powers. Nun the Less is capable o [...]

    9. John Rozum - writerFrazier Irving - artistInfected with powerful nano-machines that constantly keep his body in peak physical condition, David Kim is an artificial, un-dead entity - a Xombi. Now he travels the world with Catholic-themed superheroes to combat various evils in the world.This is a really terriffic collection that totally caught me off guard. Rozum's writing is excellent and surprising while Irving's art is dark, refreshing and cool. This book is highly recommended for all fans of g [...]

    10. This has been in my "to read" queue for some time, and it's not exactly what I expected. It's a weird, strange, science fiction tale that involves (as far as I can tell) nanotechnology, immortality, and a futuristic society handling all those issues. In that it can't really decide fully what story it's trying to tell, I confess to not enjoying it as much as I wanted. With that said, it is a pretty cool story of ideas and such combined with some good artwork to push it along.Not great, not bad at [...]

    11. The Startling Parade! Nun of the Above! Floating strongholds! Sisterhood of Blood Mummies! Lost Horizon! Highly recommended if you want something away from the usual superhero milieu. A somewhat continuation of the original milestone series by the original series, it's easy enough to pick up what has happened beforehand to David Kim Frazier Irving knocks it out of the park as always. Visually a treat and an engrossing story. Also recommended if you enjoyed the new Dr Mirage series

    12. A wonderful book that lies in the nether region between the (old) DC Universe and Vertigo and is on a par with Azzarello and Chang's great Doctor Thirteen: Architecture and Mortality of a few years ago, Spenser's Jimmy Olsen backup, or some of Morrison's more accessible stuff like Batman and Robin (which artist Fraser Irving worked on) or All-Star Superman. Nice to see the old Milestone properties given a workout.

    13. Extraordinary flights of imagination (the husk monsters made of the ghosts of wasps trapped inside windows alone, wow), but sometimes stiff narration and prose. A clunky tendency to explain David Kim's emotions instead of finding actions that will express them. Promising enough that I'll keep an eye out for Rozum's work.Frazer Irving does amazing things with color.

    14. More creative and fun than most any other comic out there put out by the big two. This probably won't make sense to anyone else, but there's a lot here that reminds me of the Shonen Manga One Piece. Yes, this is more horror based and more overtly meant for adults. But they both take a crazy concept and not only make it crazier, but put it together in a way that works. Lots and lots of fun.

    15. The art was decent, but didn't move me. Xombi was not that interesting of a character. I did enjoy the nuns and the glowing flying Catholic girl. Oooo and the main who trapped souls in coins that talked to him. The strongholds and the bad guy wasn't that entertaining to me.

    16. There is more creativity in the dot of the I in the logo of XOMBI than there is in 99% of comics and graphic novels on the market today. Rozum and Irving are perfectly teamed here for an engaging, amazing, new-reader friendly book.

    17. This was fresh and interesting adventure, probably better suited for DC's Vertigo line. I liked the characters, but it felt a little clunky trying to push all the backstory into this volume rather than organic. Art is kind of gorgeous.

    18. It took several attempts to get into this, but when the right mood struck me, it was a great story. It had a nice balance of seriousness and tongue in cheek humor, a world full of possibilities, and a fun cast of characters. More, please!

    19. Despite a few stunning images, this was unfathomably unbelievable. People's facial expressions were outlandish. The story was pointless. The storytelling was exposition hell. I forced myself to finish because I had a sudden bout of stubbornness. Some dig it, that's great, not me.

    20. Really neat and weird stuff. The art is fantastic and consistent. The story is loaded with bizarre ideas and characters.

    21. A wild and imaginative story with absolutely gorgeous artwork from Frazier Irving!More! Please give us More!

    22. Morrison-like but with characters instead of archetypes and plots instead of excuses to babble bullet points at you. Great art as well. Kind of upsetting we didn't get more from this series.

    23. This book is fantastic. Great moody art by Frasier Irving. Fantastic weird stories reminiscent of early Grant Morrison.

    24. Deep, rich, dramatic story-telling. Good characterization. The universe of this world, I wish was larger, but I seemed to "key" in immediately. This book is "fawseome."
