Oct 15, 2009"Eagle is BACK!!!" A great book for new and old fans alike! I've been a fan of Neil's work ever since I picked up my issue of Eagle #1. It had suspense, martial arts, cool art and Ninjas of coarse! Everything that I wanted in a B&W series. Unfortunately, the series only went to twenty-three. So when Neil announced he was re-issuing the series as a trade and continuing the series with "Eagle: the New Adventures"...I jumped on the bandwagon! The money you spend on this book is totally worth it. Not only do you get great art and story, but you also get insight as to the creation and development of Richard Eagle. So buy this book...you won't be disappointed!!! -H
May 1, 2009"EAGLE:THE ORIGINAL ADVENTURES-review by David Zuzelo" After many moons of waiting I was rewarded with the arrival of the first volume of EAGLE: THE ORIGINAL ADVENTURES by Neil Vokes, Rich Rankin and Jack Herman! I have a long history with Eagle really, it came out during the big Black and White comics boom and instantly caught my eye because it had so many elements I enjoyed. The initial 12 issues stand as one of the best indies of the 80s when read as a stand alone unit. Also, I have some bittersweet memories of reading this book when a particularly close relative was sick and in the hospital. You know you really ENJOY something when you find yourself digging for something to read while you sit up all night at a bedside. Eagle was that book. Some years later I met Neil via the Eurotrash Paradise and I remember just typing "Neil "EAGLE" Vokes? Holy CRAP!! Of course, he has done lots of other stuff, but he'll always be Eagle's proud papa to me. We... More > became good friends...but hey, I can say this without bias and be honest. I was a fan of this guy long before I knew him as the cherub faced man with the devilish dervish hands. So...what is in this book and why do you NEED it? Well, you need it because if you are a comic fan and remember the book at all, revisiting the early issues will bring you back to not just the story, but the very best of that period of collecting comics. You get the first 3 issues, which introduce Richard Eagle and the rest of the crew in fine fashion. Fans of Neil's work will find these books very interesting if they have not seen them-while they look different in some ways, there is a raw energy in every panel that he has harnessed and refined over the years. But they also feel just right-with tons of the trademarked Vokes fight choreography (the man sure does love his kung fu flicks) and a weird sense of ANYTHING can happen in the next panel that you don't often see. Oh, and there are ninja. I love ninja. Anything ninja is good. But the package doesn't stop at the three issues-no, it features a lot of bonus material. This is the Criterion DVD release of Eagle! First up is The History of Eagle-a fascinating montage of editorials from the original books that were written by Rich Rankin and annotated by Neil Vokes. I love it because not only do you get a hands on history, but one that progressed with the rise and fall of the book and the independent comics market as well. From early success to cancellation notice, it really is a compelling read beyond the subject matter. After the main presentation is a selection of artwork that includes the first 3 E-Book covers, an amazing Eagle's Girls piece by Neil and Michael Oeming from 1995, a great 1986 Christmas card (Eisner would love that chimney!) and some concept art for one of the "next phase" Eagle tales. The New Adventures is an essay on how the original series was created and the things that have happened in between the now and then of Eagle's next appearance. Most excitingly is a print version of the first pages of Eagle:Legacy...and this is a FANTASTIC knock down drag out battle that makes me happy with every little image. Hey, I'm excited...and I hope that those that haven't read the book will try it. Or if you enjoyed The Black Forest, The Wicked West, Parliament of Justice or even Neil's Spidey/Dr. Strange book and want to have some fun reading a book that just doesn't slow down for a second-check it out.
