Red Rocket 7 Reviews

  • Joni

    Extra a combinaci n de documental y ciencia ficci n con seres inmortales que escapando de una raza alien gena a trav s del tiempo se va contando el inicio, florecimiento, desarrollo y apogeo del pop rock A pesar de su originalidad algo no cierra en el trasfondo fant stico y el dibujo de los m s flojos que le conozco a Mike Allred, parece hecho a las apuradas, sin buenas terminaciones No deja de ser un c mic interesante que aporta mucha data de m sica.

  • Javier Muñoz

    Este c mic destila amor a la m sica por los cuatro costados, se nota que Mike Allred es un apasionado del rock y que tiene una cultura musical bastante s lida este es un c mic que apreciar n mucho m s aquellos que se toman la m sica y en concreto la m sica popular de la segunda mitad del siglo XX realmente en serio, porque el n mero de referencias y detalles de inter s es abrumador, aquel que no le siga el juego del qui n es qui n musical a Mike Allred tiene muchas menos posibilidades de di Este [...]

    I read it when it was first published in the late 90s, returning to it 20 years later was both nostalgic and a reminder of the vast generational shift in which many of the artists featured in the series are now very much the classic rock of grandparents It s also great to look at a period of artistic difference from Mike Mignola with the fat, sharpie like lines he used for the series, and the colors from Laura Allred popped per usual.

    Me encantar a conseguir este libro disco en edici n espa ola, pero por lo que veo est m s que dif cil De todos modos, dejo como to read esta edici n hasta nuevo aviso Cuando pueda me pongo a jugar a reconocer a los conos musicales que aparecen en la portada.

    Another one that I don t really think is specifically YA.

    I was introduced to this graphic novel by my Book Club, and I m really glad I read it I believe this is the first Mike Allred piece, I ve read or written about, and for the most part I enjoyed it Unfortunately, the music survey of all of Mike Allred s favorites from the 1950s until the early mid 90s was distracting and indulgent at best, and annoying and elitist at worst Like the guy at the shop who just has to keep throwing trivia at you until he finds the one thing you didn t know and can I wa [...]

  • Vittorio Rainone

    Bellissimi e coloratissimi i disegni degli Allred Fregano sempre non si pu non comprare un prodotto con una confezione cos attraente Salvo poi ricredersi leggendo la storia, che piuttosto insulsa Non proprio illeggibile, ma neanche degna di nota.

    Desde hace unos meses ten a ganas de adentrarme en el mundo de los comics, pero no llegaba a encontrar el adecuado para dar el paso la mayor a que encontraba eran relacionados con los superh roes, como los de Marvel, y debo confesar que ese universo no me interesa mucho.Hasta que un d a en la secci n de comics de la biblioteca de mi pueblo me top con este comic, el cual me llam la atenci n por su portada, y al leer la sinopsis decid que era el adecuado para comenzar con ellos Red Rocket 7 [...]

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I m a fan of Mike Allred from back in the Grafik Graphique Muzak Musique days I ve been a pop rock afficianado for about that long, as well However, there s always been something about this best of both worlds book and indeed the entire multimedia project of which it was part that s been off the mark for me The art is, typical of Allred, stunning and the colours are, typical of the other Allred, gorgeous It would be [...]

    This book was given to me years ago, but I d never really been interested in reading it I picked it up now because it was relatively short and I needed some distraction one night It was a lot interesting than I d expected, though nothing spectacular My favorite part was kind of a sub point of the story Red Rocket 7 was extremely interested in music, and it details his interactions with many musicians throughout the years It was fun to see the artist s interpretation of the musicians a This book [...]

  • Trashy Dreams

    THE BEATLES, THE STONES, ELVIS, LITTLE RICHARD, T REX, BOWIEthe history of rock n roll told thru sci fi pop comic art can t describe it any better than thatjeez mike allred genius i still like MADMAN better, but you can tell this is just done out of pure love fer music and comics and stuff BONUS this new collection not the one pictured above is now the size of a 7 but one complaint the dandy warhols show up too much i used to like them, but they re douchebags this book, and THE BEATLES, THE STON [...]

  • Dominick

    Originally serialized in the 1990s, this odd series brings together SF, comics, and rock and roll in a quasi religious narrative about clones, immortality, and the great lost chord Lovely Kirbyesque gonzo art, rather pedestrian writing, and a meandering plot interested in likening the protagonist to major 1950s and 1960s rock icons than in telling a sensible story And since it s reproduced at a smaller size than originally intended, it looks cramped.

  • Bryson Kopf

    Not sure this is going to really mean anything to a reader who isn t up on their rock history but this is a fun trip through the first 20ish years of rock Featuring a nicely retro sci fi background, we follow the adventures of Red Rocket 7, a rock n roll loving clone of an alien fugitive Rock is very obviously near and dear to Allred s heart, and it really shows on every page of this book Mike s art and design is beautiful, and Laura s colors are stunning as usual A ton of fun

  • Smofers

    Did not like the history lesson and the I so hung out with beatles feeling The story was what I like and it was disregarded so that I could learn the history of David Bowe Which would be cool if red rocket did not hang out with every musician in the last decade All I want to know is, did he smoke pot with any no names

  • Raina

    Lushly colored holla Laura Allred sci fi comic in which an alien is inserted into 20th century popular music history.Yeah, kinda nuff said Saw the Allreds at the last Oly Comics Fest 2012 but somehow had never read this.

  • Lucas

    I loved the art, the trip through rock and roll history, everything Er, except the story, which didn t totally engage me like Madman always did That Beatles cover, um, cover was fantastic, though Great rendition of Black Francis.

  • Northern K Sunderland

    Absolutely amazing.A detailed chronicle of the history of Rock Roll, with space aliens and robots A really great read

  • Eric Orchard

    Beautifully drawn and really fun Allred at his best.

  • Paul Meloon

    Not Allred s best work Basically a science fiction version of Forest Gump with rock stars.

  • Patrick

    A fun visual pop art look at the history of rock and roll thru sci fi glasses, but completely falls apart with a disaster of an ending.

  • Richard Gombert

    Interesting, but way too preachy

  • Spoon

    flawed, but super geeky fun.

  • Reyel2107

  • Emily

    I really, really, really wanted to like this since it seemed like as if Ziggy Stardust were Doctor Who, but it just didn t work out for me.
