HASH(0x95f14c6c) von 5 Sternen Keeps getting better with every issue 4. August 2014
Von Lewis Woolston - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have been a fan of this series since I randomly bought the second volume in a comic book store because the cover looked interesting. Since then I've gone back to the first volume and gotten the thread of the story better. Now this third book has come out and I love it! This series is improving with every volume.
This volume continues on from Aphrodite IX Rebirth so read that book first to get the gist of what's happening. The art is amazing. The very first Aphrodite IX was only so-so on the art. Very much eye candy to appeal to teenage boys whereas this is a lot more sophisticated. There are some big SF concepts in the story including transhumanism and extinction level events on Earth.
I would easily rate this as the best comic I have read in years. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x95c1e6cc) von 5 Sternen "For lack of a better way to say it, I have a personality now." 8. November 2014

This trade contains Aphrodite IX (vol. 2) issues 6-11 and Aphrodite IX: Hidden Files.

Volume 1 of Aphrodite IX: Rebirth took the core concepts and characters of a semi-decent, fan service heavy, action-fluff series from the late 90s and turned into a compelling, layered story of identity and survival amidst warfare in a fascinating post-aocalyptic world.

This second collections builds well off that strong start and escalates both the stakes and Aphrodite's understanding of the world and her intended purpose in it. The war between the Gen and the Speros continues, but forces outside of both dominant cities have plans of their own. There's a ridiculous amount happening in these six issues but it all unfolds logically and with enough framework to follow, while still managing several organic twists and surprises. There is also good effort made to tie this incarnation back to the original Aphrodite IX mini-series (providing just enough context and explanation that anyone who hasn't read it won't be lost).

Sejic has tweaked his painted art style a bit in these issues but it is just as impressive, detailed, and atmospheric.

Hidden Files is a collection of supplementary material with more about Aphrodite IX and her world. There's a timeline and character biographies that both provide a lot of detail that helps flesh out and solidify the background of Hawkins' tale. There's also a fantastic section entitled "Science Class" where Hawkins shares research related to the comic and the scientific background used/adapted, and a cover gallery (including variants) to close the trade.

This appears to be the end of the Aphrodite IX solo for now, with the next advertised trade/series to be Aphrodite IX/Cyberforce. While I'd prefer a little more time spent on Aphrodite's personal story (in fact a couple more issues wouldn't have hurt this trade), connecting the larger Top Cow Universe also has potential and I'm interested to see where Hawkins takes things from here.

Overall more incredible work from Hawkins and Sejic. Highly recommended.

This second arc of Aphrodite IX Rebirth I found a lot more enjoyable than the first and it works as a jumping on point as well.

Whereas the first arc was about how two warring factions manipulated an unstoppable assassin, this time around the titular character is front and center, determined to get answers. Finding herself with free will and plenty of personality, she is much more proactive in finding out who she is, when she is, how, and why. The search for her identity leads to much bigger revelations that are both grander in scope and hold more personal stake than the previously focused-on rivalry between the Gen and the Speros, which also heads in interesting directions in this arc.

Aphrodite is a much more likeable character in this volume than before. Her inner musings previously were lamentation over the situation she finds herself in without her actually doing anything to change it. Those same musings are now the drive behind her actions and I'm more inclined to cheer for a character who is trying.
Returning characters undergo significant development and they don't overstep their role in the story. Plenty of new and quirky characters are introduced who are tied to the greater narrative and they're all very fun and interesting to read.

There is so much happening but it never feels overwhelming. There are a lot of distinct characters with their own goals and motivations and a lot of world building happens in the background that have big payoffs. This arc also finds time to slip some in there. Ninjas apparently exist in the future, characters pose dramatically when introduced and during tense moments, and there's more banter between many of the colorful characters.

The artist is the same (:D) and the art is still amazing. This time around the book looks less "photo-realistic" and more comicbook-y, which I personally prefer and I think it works much better with the more outlandish characters introduced. You'll see outfits and hair colors of all manner in this one.

Biggest negative in my book is that I felt the conclusion was rushed. Great read. I recommend.
