    One thought on “Drones”

    1. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes Initial reaction: WTF did I just read, and perhaps more importantly, why did I read this?I believe it pretends to be a satirical take on terrorism, drones, and the entertainment industry, but it was an utterly confusing, uninteresting story that didn't make sense at all. At first I believed I was the only one who didn't understand what was going on, but reading some other reviews, I found out I was not alone, which was in this case a relieve since it' [...]

    2. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.I'm sad to report that I really disliked this graphic novel which is supposed to be a satire about terrorism and drones in Afghanistan. Instead all I took from the story was a mass of confusion. I struggled to follow what was going on for most of the time and as a result I found it impossible to enjoy. I found some of the art pleasing to the eye, however it didn't really help with the confusion as so m [...]

    3. Based on the description, I requested it on netgalley thinking that it would be a critique of society. It may be. I never made it that far. Nothing made sense, and I didn't care enough to keep reading to wait and see if it would come together. Also, I was intrigued by the gorgeous girl on the cover. I can't lie. Queer me was all about her and her hair. For a book with a cover featuring a fully clothed woman, it doesn't do women any justice. Maybe other people will like it, but based on the other [...]

    4. Drones. Drones. Drones? Made no sense whatsoever and Lewis must have been on drugs (or drunk) when he made this and I surely have hard time believing that this was a hit series. The plot is supposedly that we have pilots Stinger and Angel Eyes, who sleep together, but don't date. They end up in a terrorism-themed hotel and then everything goes bat shit crazy. None of the characters are introduced and the most you know about some of them are their names and that applies to like the main pair and [...]

    5. I did not really care for this title.I found the artwork fantastic, but distracting. To be fair, I read it on a tablet, and they don't always work well with graphic novels. I would be willing to give it a try in a physical format, but I'm not really holding my breath.The story is broken and confusing, and to be honest, doesn't make much sense. It is all over the place with not much continuity or plot. There is very little world building or character introduction, which is a huge drawback when mo [...]

    6. This book is trying to be a satirical look at terrorism in the Middle East and the drone technology used to target it, through the spectrum of western society's penchant for turning anything into gross entertainment. An interesting, thought-provoking, and challenging approach to a serious topic, but the execution is an utterly confusing failure. I spent a good chunk of my time trying to tell the characters apart, and ultimately failed to find the humour in the terrorist-themed hotel and the vari [...]

    7. This is the complete review as it appears at my blog dedicated to reading, writing (no 'rithmatic!), movies, & TV. Blog reviews often contain links which are not reproduced here, nor will updates or modifications to the blog review be replicated here. Graphic and children's reviews on the blog typically feature two or three images from the book's interior, which are not reproduced here.Note that I don't really do stars. To me a book is either worth reading or it isn't. I can't rate it three- [...]

    8. 'Drones' is just a mess of a graphic novel. The characters in the story run around and are confused, and I, as the reader, fully understand their confusion.For some reason, in the near future, Las Vegas has decided to create a terrorism-themed hotel. A couple of drone pilots find themselves at this resort and can't tell who are the real terrorists and who are the actors. The confusion really starts at the beginning of the book where the soldiers conduct a real drone strike half a world away, the [...]

    9. What on earth did I just read? I have no clue and am so confused. The graphic novel is a satire about terrorists, media, and the 'show must go on' mentality of the media and people in the world today - or at least that is what it seems to be. I have to say that I stopped reading this about half way through and though about just not finishing it, I was confused about the plot and what was happening and even about who the characters were. There was a lot of action and not enough explanation, and e [...]

    10. I thought the art in Drones was pretty decent, and I'd be interested to see the artist work on a decent story.It *could* just be that I'm not a fan of crude satires, but I honestly think that this was just bad. Unlike something like Borat or The Interview, which were at least intelligible, and somewhat intelligent, Drones is neither. It was confusing and didn't make sense, not aided by the fact that it was difficult to discern between the characters, due not only to how they're drawn, but becaus [...]

    11. This was not a good comic book (which is why I'm reviewing it here, instead of the blog).There are many ways where a comic book can fail and this one managed to hit every single one: the art is so terrible you can't tell which character is which, except those with very obvious clothes or accessories -- the gorgeous cover is a massive tease and a misdirection; the plot is so convoluted and complicated you can't even tell what story is being told or what is happening; the characters seem to shift [...]

    12. The story is good and interesting, but the art style was something of a turn off. Drones is about drones, sort of, but really it's about the people behind the drones except it's not. It's a fantasy world where there's a terrorist themed hotel run by actors where you can buy acts of fake terrorism to be performed on you, your loved ones and/or your friends. But there are also real terrorists and some pretty bad ass ladies. Except they're drawn in a very sexually explicit way that it took away fr [...]

    13. I received a free copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really just don't know what happened. First the main characters were in the middle of orchestrating a drone attack on a Taliban operative in Afghanistan. Then they went to Las Vegas where Lani was kidnapped and Stinger spend the rest of the comic trying to rescue her. In a twist of events, she was actually kidnapped by a hotel act where people pay to go through a terrorist experience. The man they killed at the beginning wa [...]

    14. Thank you, . I turned here some way into this dross to see if it was defined as a comedy or was actually some kind of real drama regarding terrorists escaping drone strikes to retaliate in the USA, only to find nobody had a good word to say for it, beyond some grudging words regarding the artwork. This is a book to pick up if you want to watch every. single. character. go about their business not knowing what they're doing. Which is pretty much what the 'author' was doing. Possibly racist, defin [...]

    15. Comic collection about using drones in AfghanisatanThis collection deals with the issue of assassination with drones in Afghanistan alongside a terrorism-themed hotel in Las Vegas. Various groups vie for control but the whole thing is quite confusing and I do not recommend this in its present form.The artwork adds to the confusion as most of the scantily-clad women are similar-looking. I prefer clearer artwork to make the story more evident. Disappointing.

    16. In Drones, the War on Terror goes surrealistic. Two drone operators in Nevada think they are taking out a target in Afghanistan, but during the course of an adventure at a local casino/hotel that offers terrorism as a lure, they find out that their technology is not as omniscient as they thought. Plenty of whacked-out craziness with British drones saving the day as theater wins out in the end.

    17. I couldn't finish this. I have a hard time reading graphic novels in general because I really hate the drawing style, but seriously, this was bad. I can draw better with my eyes poked out and using my right hand (I'm a southpaw). Drawings aside, as I'm (wo)man enough to weather that storm if the story is good, I just didn't like the writing style. This was a waste.

    18. Borrowed from Publisher/NetGalley for an honest review.This was both boring and confusing. Despite this being satire, it wasn't funny and the story didn't make any sense. I didn't finish reading this.

    19. I have no idea what the hell happened while reading this. The plot seems like it's got a big steam of consciousness bent to it, but man, I have no idea where it was going.

    20. I enjoyed the art and the dialogue. However the story was VERY confusing. It has potential, the twists and turns just need to be a little more clear.

    21. This book comes off as a satire on current world events and attitudes, but it comes off as too esoteric and "inside the game" for most readers.
