    1 thought on “Scarlet, Book 1

    1. Revolution Marvel StyleAccording to the back cover, Scarlet is the story of a woman pushed to the edge by all that is wrong with the world A woman who will not back down A woman who discovers within herself the power to start a modern American revolution Wait a minute, a REVOLUTION Against ALL THAT IS WRONG with the world In a MARVEL comic book Yeah right, a politically relevant, socio critical comic book published by Disney controlled Marvel as if But wait, it s by Bendis and Maleev hmm, I kind [...]

    2. I love this for so many reasons I will count the ways.1 Scarlet is a gun toting, redheaded, vigilante What s not to love 2 She demolishes the fourth wall, talking directly to the reader and challenging you to act 3 The art is amazing and so realistic Alex Maleev appears to be working from photographs, he must be I m hooked on him now Hunting down Daredevil trades and anything else his golden hand has touched 4 The pages that show major life events in Scarlet and Gabriel s lives are some of my fa [...]

    3. A corrupt cop kills a teen boy over drugs the boy didn t have The boy s girlfriend is also hit but survives This is her story Scarlet is a very timely story of a general malaise in most peoples outlooks on life They look around and see corruption in institutions which were once sacred, and the apathy that allows this way of life to continue Recently this took the form of the Occupy movements but in this book writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev take things further with Scarlet pick [...]

    4. It seems that I m on a wild swing right now when it comes to graphic novels, moving from utterly craptastic books like DC s Bizarro and Dark Horse s Red Sonja The Black Tower to outstanding books like the recent run of Nathan Edmondson s Black Widow series Marvel, of course and the exceptional American Vampire series by Scott Snyder Scarlet, Book 1 fits firmly into the latter category, coming in at very nearly five stars.The storyline is simple and very timely a corrupt cop and his supporting sy [...]

    5. Scarlet was timely for me or anyone to have read now as it, in the light of recent horrific events about cops as killers and the killing of cops, features a cop killer the titular character, who in the first person makes a case for her acts being justified, since the cop s in question are crooked, and nasty, and many of the rest of the cops are aware of the bad cops And no, this book did not just come out last week, but was a 2010 2011 series collecting issues 1 5 It s my understanding that a se [...]

    6. As one of the most prominent writers of Marvel Comics in the last sixteen years, Brian Michael Bendis started out with crime and noir comics prior to the mainstream superhero work Although there have been a small handful of his titles which blurred the line between crime and superhero such as Alias and Daredevil, Bendis reunites with artist Alex Maleev with a creator owned crime comic under Marvel s Icon imprint.Following the sudden death of her first true love and having survived a bullet in th [...]

    7. I picked this up at the library because of the artwork The artwork was easily the coolest thing about it I was expecting an urban fantasy type story from the cover but it dealt with way reality than I was in the mood for The story deals with corrupt cops killing innocent people and the female mc s subsequent revenge This was written in 2011, but could of been taken straight from today s headlines I m new to graphic novels This is the first one I have read that wasn t The Walking Dead So maybe i [...]

    8. I have to say, I really like Bendis Bendis always catches me from page one of his graphics Now sometimes I ve followed Bendis down a path and wasn t quite sure why I continued Sometimes he s all over the place or too dark or perhaps too abstract And honestly a book about a cop killing teen shouldn t have kept me up reading But it did and I consumed it so fast that I know I will anxiously await the next binding Also it makes me want to dig up my Powers, Alias, Pulse comics and graphics out of my [...]

    9. It s like Bendis wanted to have some real political commentary and it almost gets there, but at the last second it takes a turn for the Hot Topic mall goth anarky Lots of cop killing fun going on here, but it kind of feels like dirt under my nails with the pseudo revolution talk I guess I should reserve judgment until the next volume comes out soonish, right.Series has a lot of potential, hope it doesn t fall flat.

    10. First volumes are tough Tough to gauge, tough to judge Even with series that are well on their way and have gone some length toward establishing themselves, talking about first volumes isn t always easy Some of my favourite books are marred by less than stellar, less than representative first volumes Fables initial story had me convinced the series was very much not my thing though it later turned out to be very much my thing Usagi Yojimbo, for all its storied perfections, boasts a first volume [...]

    11. What would happen if someone decided to change things Not complain, not protest, not write their congressman actually stand up and hold the people in power accountable for what they do with the only punishment they seem to understand That s the driving force behind Scarlet, the story of a girl named Scarlet whose life is shattered by the arrogant, drug fueled actions of a crooked cop When she discovers that not only was the truth covered up but he was granted a promotion, Scarlet snaps She reali [...]

    12. Este personaje va a ser el que marque este a o para m Muy acorde con los tiempos de mierda que nos est tocando vivir La revoluci n va a llegar, bitches

    13. Semi spoiler review below SCARLET was one of the first books I picked up from Comixology digital comics and what an impulse buy it was I confess I d not heard of Brian Michael Bendis prior to reading SCARLET VOL.1 but will make an effort to read of his stuff The below is a blow by blow review of each issue that comprises volume 1 Issue 1 Love the introspective narrative The opening chapter establishes Scarlet as a dark yet light and vibrant young woman, one who knows love and falls for the clic [...]

    14. Well that was a surprising read from creators I thought I knew Bendis trademark back and forth sassy dialogue is still firmly part of the storyline, but so is a engaging style and some pretty shocking and in your face confrontation of the system though not too much to be confused with an actual manifesto or call to arms.Mostly I think it s shocking because I see Bendis having attained a level of comfort and privilege in his chief architect role, frequent consultant to the movies and all around [...]

    15. Re read before the last issue of the second arc finally becomes available tomorrow I can t believe it, after all these years Scarlet is one of my favorite series ever It s absolutely the best thing Bendis has ever written, and most likely ever will write It s just so good Right from the very first page, the story grabs you and doesn t let go.The book with its revolutionary themes feels even relevant today for me, too, living in Russia but especially with all the recent scandals with police viol [...]

    16. Scarlet wants revenge on the cop that killed her boyfriend just to keep his secrets Rather then just settling for personal revenge, she ends up starting a revolution with her boyfriends best friend Very dark and gritty but at the same time there is lots of hope creeping around the edges Scarlett is so angry and she s just running on that anger, that is what has kept her going At the end she is preparing to step into that role that both she and the people have created for her It will be interesti [...]

    17. Bendis created another iconic heroine ripped off the pages of the headlines, a symbol against a corrupt cops and a system that nurtures them Unrelenting and incendiary.

    18. The last time I visited Chicago, I visited One Stop Comics and noticed several issues of a comic called Scarlet Each cover seemed to be reaching hard to look as alternative as possible, with its redheaded protagonist always brandishing guns and making serious faces The covers reminded me of Synthia Sin Schmidt from Captain America.Modern comics love a ginger with a gun, I guess Sin was a hyperactive snot of a villain for Marvel, rushing around with pistols and laughing at death and destruction u [...]

    19. A good cover can be all it takes to draw me in This past month, that s happened twice for me, first with A Voice in the Dark, Volume 1, and then with Scarlet, both of which feature young female pro antagonists who demand you turn the pages to learn what lies beyond the cover.Scarlet surprised me because I m usually not taken in by the violent bad girl image Still, Alex Maleev s gritty style hard lines contrasted with the muted colours and Scarlet s vibrant hair, lured me in.Her very first act wh [...]

    20. Revolution.That s the theme of Bendis s latest creator owned effort, starring the amazing art work of his long time collaborator Alex Maleev Daredevil, Spider woman, Moon Knight Scarlet is a woman pushed too far by all that s wrong with the world, and from a tragic beginning is set to inspire a modern American revolution.The main device of the book is that Scarlet talks right to us, breaking the fourth wall throughout In fact, there s fourth wall breaking than actual dialogue, which is a device [...]

    21. I recently read this along with a lot of other graphic novels and out of the stack this was one of my favorites I was looking for an awesome female character and got than I could have hoped for I loved everything about Scarlet, especially the fact that she directly addresses the reader I also liked the flaws that she had Maybe one thing that I didn t like about this volume was how desperate it made me to get my hands on another.I hadn t heard of this book before I spotted it in the library and [...]

    22. Ferris Bueler s Day Off meets V For Vendetta but wait that s a good thingScarlet is a young 20 year old girl that attracts one of those cops attention.We ve all been there the cop that wants to assert his authority by taking it out on a couple of young punks for loitering or whatever However, this time it goes a little too far and really bad things happen.Scarlet doesn t have any super powers, she doesn t wear tights, she doesn t have an utility belt, she s cute but far from the sexy conception [...]

    23. I picked this up at the local library The art attracted my attention first, and a look at the back indicated the author s connection to Alias and Daredevil I turned to my partner and asked if she had read it She said it was good so I went with it.The book is dark Very dark It opens with Scarlet Rue, killing a cop, and asking the reader to hear her out as to why she did what she did It evolves from an eye for an eye revenge tale into something rapidly escalating It harkened me back to my love of [...]

    24. Scarlet is about a highly trained badass assassin who preys on corrupt cops No wait, it s about a victimized young woman with a message of revolution and anti corruption Fight the system In the first panel, she skillfully and remorselessly kills a man And beats the shit out of a bike thief for good measure Scarlet then speaks directly to the reader while recounting her story, why she is what she is and does what she does And it turns out that view spoiler she has no training She s just a kid who [...]

    25. I m generally a big fan of Brian Bendis writing, but this book is something special It s a call to arms for the Little Guy against The Establishment a screed against police and government corruption, as well as social complacency and it s both terribly prosaic and non super heroic even while being a the stuff of myth, all blended with a variety of flash backs, forwards, Fourth Wall breaking, and generally innovative tale telling styles Alex Maleev, Bendis long time collaborator, has rarely been [...]

    26. I actually really enjoyed this, but I can see it not being for everybody I think some of the film influences behind it are also pretty obvious Kill Bill, Fight Club , but that s not necessarily a bad thing Bendis is a big consumer of good film and Tv, so it s only right that d he d bring it into some of his creator owned work I must admit, how it ended as Book One of what seems will be a series, was slightly off putting I d have liked a rounded off ending, especially since we ll probably be wai [...]

    27. OMG I loved this book Bow at Bendis my king and the art was so good I loved it even though I bated Scarlet at first Hated But, she won me over and yeah I kind of dig her now In any case, I loved this even though I didn t think I would but I did.

    28. Gritty story of a young woman who declares war on police corruption after her boyfriend is shot to death by a crooked cop on drugs I can t wait to read Book 2 Highly recommended.

    29. WHAT I LOVED I loved how uncomfortable this book made me The story is so incredibly relevant With tension between police and civilians in our country at an all time high, the murder of police officers hit home recently when two Des Moines officers were ambushed and killed Scarlet is written in such a way that you feel you should be rooting for Scarlet she s the hero of the comic, right In reality, rooting for Scarlet will leave you with a sick feeling in the pit of your stomach I honestly did no [...]
