Super-Villain Style - Blog Review
Title: Super-Villain Style
Author: Doctar AKA Doc AKA Doc Savage AKA Doc Massive AKA Stokey Ross AKA Doctar Ock AKA Doc Large AKA Ronny Von Doom AKA Ronny Octavious AKA Doctar Grace CIO-JZM, the Great.
Super-Villain Style uses a very traditional black background with white font, very easy on the eyes. The effort into the overall look of the blog is great. The banner is really attention-grabbing. The way that the pictures are consistent in placement and space is a nice touch, also. Navigating to the archives is somewhat hard, but that's blogspot's fault.
Doctar's writing is - uneven. Not necessarily in a bad way. Doc can be really insightful, for example, his top 10 supervillains countdown was incredibly interesting and insightful. It really was serious writing which impacted me (as much as blogging about comics can, anyway). The Joker one is memorable. On the other hand, Doc can be just plain silly. Chewbacca is a recent favorite. It's absurdity is just incredibly funny. Doc may be the blogging version of Kool Keith or M.F. Doom - multiple personalities, absurdity, Supervillain motifs. There is a tendancy to go for the sillier posts, which is fine by me. Octavious does have a tendancy to ramble, and some posts are slow to start. For example, Like a Pimp almost makes you lose interest before he regains it with a conclusion that made me LOL (as the kids say) right in the middle of the library. Some posts are just a buncha links - not incredibly memorable, but interesting nontheless. A great post is One Nation - Retarded; yes it is silly and it rambles, but it is interesting and raises valid points about the political climate. Another great posts is: This Message Brought to You By...; within its absurdness (?) there are pretty good points.
Extras 1 Bonus Point
Interesting links as well as alotta downloads. Deadly Weapon, AKA TNA pics, is worth mentioning.
Final Score: 10/10
Doc Savage has a superb layout, even if somewhat cluttered. His writing is insane - absurdity and seriousness are juxtaposed into a unique writing, with different personalities (the Kool Keith comparisons are inevitable). Doctar's writing is at it's best, either analitcal and thorough, silly and absurd, or both, as much as a paradox that makes. Overall, one of my favorite blogs. Let me end this carefree review with a large
