    1. Grist's work is totally is own vision, but somehow catches the spark of excitement from the Bronze Age of comics while being true to modern story telling techniques.

    2. Soldiers collects the first six issues of Jack Staff published through Image. It jumps straight into action, switching between the present day and twenty years ago with Grist's trade-mark expert playfulness. In the past, a military weapon called the Hurricane is accidentally unleashed on Castletown, and the only person standing in his way is Jack Staff. Today, violent attacks of uncontrollable rage are on the increase, and it won't be long before the whole town explodes.Everyone's here: Jack, Be [...]

    3. I didn't like this quite as much as the black and white stuff, but I can see his point that superhero comics should be in color. (Oddly, though, there's one character who's now black. I guess he was always black, but you just had no way of knowing this in the B&W issues? There's nothing that identifies him as black except that he's now colored in brown - I feel like this is maybe a shortcoming on the artist's part.)The jumpy storytelling gets a little easier to follow here, or maybe you just [...]

    4. Fun series, as Grist uses British pop culture to create a comic book universe and then squishes it all into one title.Laid back builder, Jon Smith would like to just do his job and enjoy a quiet life, but he is also Jack Staff, hero of Castletown!which means every five minutes there will be a rampaging robot, a vampire or two, mystics and WW2 reject super soldiers.Big colorful and lots of fun, with a silver age vibe and an innovative style of story telling.

    5. Jack Staff seems to have lost something when it switched over to color, though the coloring looks as natural on the page as the B&W did. The story in this second arc drags its feet and the weight of the massive cast drags it further down. I think I enjoy Paul Grist more in theory than in practice. His art and his spirit are to my tastes, but this just isn't.
