My take on "24" from IDW

For all you duh-huh people out there just like me, this is a glorified comic book. I wanted to note this first. In the discription I first read it was noted as 3 short stories. Yes, they are short stories. In comic book format! When it arrived I wasn't sure I like it. After reading it carefully, oh say 10-12 times, I decided it was very informative and interesting. The first comic is, "One Shot". It helped to place Jack in the beginning of his career at CTU. The artwork wasn't that impressive to me. The second story is, "Midnight Sun" and here you get to know more about the Jack we all love. I found more personal details as to how he handels himself & what he has had to do to, sacrfice, to successfully stop terrorists. The artwork is definately coming along here. Characters are more defined and accurately drawn. The last of the three is entitled, "Stories". This is the BEST of the three! It takes you inside & expalins the Ramone Salazar story line. The artist Manny Clark should get some award for his renderings of Jack, Tony, Chloe, Michelle, & everyone else! It's just like watching the show frame by frame. I learned alot from this one & it helped plug up all the little holes in the Salazar story line for me. Over all I totally enjoyed this book, even though I was a bit leary of the format.

At least for a fan, these Comics help with the wait!

Now that Day V of 24 is in Action, getting these many "Inbetweenquels" (Sequels & Prequels and everything in between) may not be so crucial. But once the show ends this season, it may be the time to check out these comics out! In 24: One Shot, It's Jack's first day at CTU, where he meets Tony, Nina, Jamey . . . the main gang of Day I. Oh yeah, he must also save a witness' life with one bullet left in the gun. In 24: Stories, It's between Days II & III, and Jack is currently undercover with the Salazar Cartel. Think that's hard enough to begin with? Check out what Jack has to do keep his cover and save the hostages of a 24-storied hotel when it's taken over by Chechen Rebels!! Finally, in 24: Midnight Sun, The Story is between Days II & III, and even more so, between 24: The Game (PS2) & 24 Stories. Jack has to battle some eco-terrorists from messing with the Oil-Preserves near Fairbanks, Alaska. It's mid-summer on this day . . . which means there's 24 hours of constant sun! Overall, each pull their own weight, and I recommend each of them, though I must say 24: Stories was the best of the three. I should also remind you that I bought all three separately, and this is the three in a set. Get them all in one swoop, I guess . . . For a fan, these are worthwhile reads, definitely breaking up that unbearable SEVEN Month Hiatus 24 usually takes between June to December. For a non-fan . . . I wouldn't know for sure: My advise would be to watch the series and THEN see if you're a big enough fan to read these pretty impressive "Inbetweenquels!"
