    Default Eclipse by Zack Kaplan

    I just picked up all four trades at a great price. I wasnít too impressed with Kaplanís Port of Earth, but decided to give him another shot. This story has a good premise and the art looks top notch. Have you read it? What are your thoughts?

    The other way around. I really like Port of Earth, and stopped reading Eclipse.

    Thought Port of Earth was decent. But I really liked Eclipse. Especially the first story arc.

    By the way, is Port of Earth finished? Or is it taking a break?

    I’ll probably give POE a shot once again. Sometimes a second read is warranted.

    When did you stop reading?

    I’m pretty sure I read the first trade which is what, 4 issues?

    I don't know, I read them in singles. Try it again, if you still owe it. If it doesn't do anything for you after the second read, you know that it never will.

    Yeah, I do own it still and I usually give books a second go around before I sell them, give them away, or stick em on the shelf for god knows what... thanks.

    Sometimes when you read a book the first time it doesn't click. Maybe you had a bad time or were impatient, or your mind wandered around? When I notice that I give it a reread another time.

    I had that with Invincible...glad I gave it another shot.

    But, this is a thread about Eclipse

    Yes! You are absolutely correct. Now, I actually was taking about Eclipse. I have not yet given POE that second go. But, I did pick up the 2nd trade in anticipation that I will be in a better state when I do read book one again and love it.

    Ah ok...

    I read the first issue of Eclipse. It was ok, but didn't hook me, so I forgot about it. So, I don't have much to say about that book. Sorry.

    Finished Eclipse today...

    I really enjoyed this series. It’s a great concept, well written with great visuals. I do wish some of the characters were a bit more fleshed out, but I may find a reread fills in some of the gaps I felt while reading. I also wished it was a bit longer. Overall, Eclipse is a solid series and I’m quite impressed that it was Kaplan’s first comic. Extra credit for the behind the scenes features in every trade.
