Variables: November 2002
Written and Illustrated by Brock Beauchamp with Rachel Bendtsen
Review by Ziah Grace
While it is not an offensively bad book like Suicide Squad, Variables is still a very bad book.
The problem is that it feels unfinished, in almost all stages of the presentation – the story feels choppy where most of the pertinent information is delivered through stony faced exposition and (sigh) news reports. The art, despite a couple of nice looking panels, feels wooden and rushed while the coloring switches to weird neon colors contrary to any change in mood, and even the lettering, normally the most unobtrusive part of a comic’s production, misses easy moments to enhance the story.
