A Christmas Carol! It’s A Wonderful Life! Frosty the Snowman! Now we can add “Happy” to the list of charming, Yule tide classics. This plot point list just makes me want to pour myself an eggnog and hang with Grandma, trimming the Christmas Tree: Hit men, hookers, mobsters, crooked cops, adultery, a...

Well that was brilliant. A fairly simple but masterly executed iteration of A Christmas Carol, except the redeemed character exists in the seediest city ever. Nick Sax is a low life former detective, now drinker, gambler, and contract killer. He’s surprised by Happy!, a tiny blue horse and imagin...

Finally someone made a holiday story just for me. Nick Sax used to be a cop with a lovely wife; now he's a bitter, lonely, overweight, alcoholic hitman with a bad case of eczema - you know, you're typical Scrooge in need of a heartwarming reminder about the true spirit of Christmas. That's where...

A unique profane Holiday/Crime/Comedy. About as straight forward as anything Morrison has ever done. Short and the ending was abrupt but not bad.

⭑⭑⭑I try to make it a tradition every holiday season to read a book that can inspire a bit of holiday cheer. And because I've really gotten into reading comics this year, to get in the Yuletide spirit, I thought I'd read Happy!, a graphic novel by Grant Morrison about a disgraced former cop turne...

Βαθμολογία: 7/10 Πριν κάτι μέρες πέτυχα σ'ένα παλαιοβιβλιοπωλείο το συγκεκριμένο κόμικ και το τσίμπησα δίχως δεύτερη σκέψη. Έκδοση της Image, Grant Morrison στο εξώφυλλο (δεν θυμάμαι να έχω διαβάσει πολλά έργα του, αλλά είναι μεγάλο όνομα στο χώρο), πολύ ωραίο σχέδιο, και συν τοις άλλοις η βάση γι...

Really enjoyed this Christmas Carol-esque, guns and unicorns tale of a world-weary cop, his imaginary (or is it?) friend, and a sadistic Santa. Morrison and Robertson knock out an entertaining mini-series. Full review here!

Alright so I would just like to point something out. A little blue, comedic, flying animal that talks a lot, it has wings even though the kind of animal it is doesn’t usually have wings and is named Happy. I’m pretty much 90% sure Morrison has seen and/or read Fairy Tail. What’s it about? Nick is a...

I like that this was an attempt to be light-hearted by Morrison and the fact it is short kept him from revisiting the usual themes, but the ending was too abrupt and didn't translate very well.
