WEB COMIC REVIEW: ASYLUM INK's ELLIUM
CREATOR:ASYLUM INK & FANGORIA GRAPHICS?
COMIC REVIEWER: ANTIONESTRIFE
UPDATES: 3 TIMES WEEK
Hi again readers. I decided to do something a little different with my comic reviews. Namely I will try to show a updated page of the comic more. It it fits that is. I've done so in the past when I couldn't paste the banner. Today's comic is something different, it's a horror comic. It's called Asylum Ink and I haven't ran across many of these comics but I the art just pulled me in. The story may be kinda slow for though but more on that later. Lets begin.
PROS: This comic is different. The coloring really hits the mark on how dark the Asylum Ink universe is. The web site was a pleasure to behold with the way the template was designed. There's a blog and the creator gives you some more gruesome art to digest as you wait for the next update. Which isn't to long, Ellium updates 3 times a week at least.
CONS: The drawn characters are a bit stiff. The fonts could be a little bigger. The web site was slow at times, perhaps due to that background template(but it could be due to the traffic to the site). This story moves a bit slow and some of the scenes look like it was compressed too much(mainly the flash backs). The speech boxes are too light to see who they are pointing to sometimes.
FINAL WORD: Well in my opinion this looks like a okay graphic novel. I just don't know if it can hold my interest long enough. What's missing for me is that if your going take awhile to build up the story-- then any action scenes need to be big, loud and leave on a high note. With a horror comic it must be hard but I would think with maybe some bigger drawn pictures showing the gore would be cool. I only really read 5 updates, but it didn't really pull me in to read more. I would suggest that new readers and my self take a deeper look before coming to a hasty decision. I suggest at least a look at this comic if you want to read something different. Lets see what the numbers say...
