|If it's called, "The Neverending Story,"|
isn't it kind of false advertising (due to actually ending)?
Therefore, comics that are solicited as being ongoing but which get cancelled, or a series where it is suddenly revealed it will be ending don't count. No, these puppies are clearly solicited as being an exact number of issues, and even if they grow or shrink an issue (or two), they still are basically self-contained joys. Taking that into account, two titles are easily my favorite mini-series of 2015.
James Robinson may be making himself look a bit sillier and harsher than in real-life, but there has to be some truth to his character's discussion of feeling like people only know him as the person behind the, "Starman," comic and that folk think he can't do anything else. Watching this sorta-fictionalized version of James Robinson come to terms with the fact he is a depressed, miserable human being who needs to change carries with it a twinge of autobiography that makes the surreal elements encountered by he and the comic's illustrator, Hinkle, work all the better.
In the form of the character Johnny, a Vietnam-Vet who witnessed unspeakable things, the comic's creators have given us a character who longs to return to the feeling of joy and brotherhood he had with his fellow bikers, only to find he left a piece of himself he can never get back overseas. He also finds that you really can't ever make things return to how they were--life always changes. I make this sound like a deeply sad comic, but despite this very somber topic, there is still plenty of awesome jokes, exciting fights, raunchy sex, and general wildness you would expect from a biker gang in the late 1970's.
