Comments Copra: Round One

  • Andrew

    Fiffe applies an anarchic, anything-can-happen indie comix sensibility to this tribute to 1980's Big Two comics. I've never read the Ostrander/Yale Suicide Squad run that this most closely references, but I've read enough Claremont, Miller, and Simonson (Walter and Louise) to dig the general angst-ridden vibe. Fiffe is soley responsible for every aspect of Copra's art, writing, and design. He brings a sense of endless enthusiasm and creativity to the project, and you can witness him getting bold [...]

    Do you like John Ostranders Suicide Squad? Well here's an indie version of it. My one gripe with some of the earlier issues was the panelling, Some of the action scenes just looked like a rearranged mess and it was hard to follow but it's clear he gets better with it in time. Character development is also pretty bare-bones to begin with, It's not until you're finishing up this volume that you finally begin to attach yourself to some of these characters. The reader is kind of dumped into a pretty [...]


  • Smoothw

    A super fun pastiche of the late 80s/early 90s version of Suicide Squad, which was one of those runs that people really into comics have quite a fondness for. This is not the first time a cartoonist previously known for non genre work reveals their inner geek, but that Michel Fiffe actually sat down and cranked out such a beautiful almost monthly comic book, and gained kind of cult following while distributing it basically by himself, is kind of a marvel. So yeah the story is pretty simple, but [...]


  • Joseph

    Did you ever have a f*cked up dream, and you KNEW you were having a f*cked up dream, and you wanted to wake up, because you didn't want to see what other crazy-ass sh*t your subconscious had cooked up for youbut at the same time you also TOTALLY wanted see that crazy-ass sh*t?Well, that's what turning the pages of Copra is like. Each panel looks like a portfolio piece by the guy who won "Most Artistic" as a high school senior. Pen and ink. Colored pencils.I guarantee you have never seen anything [...]


  • Charles Hatfield

    I enjoyed this for its quirkiness and nonstop graphic inventiveness. Paraphrasing the plot would tell you nothing important about the book, and the characters are simply familiar types. The buzz of reading doesn't last. But I sure enjoy looking at it. A love letter to 1980s comics?


  • Derek Royal

    Many have been raving about this title, and although it hasn't resonated with me as it has others, I did enjoy this and am intrigued enough to read on. I'm trusting Fiffe to develop this in impressive ways. Looking forward to Round a Two (since I don't get individual issues).


  • Andy

    Incredible stuff - ultra-high energy, incredible art, highly imaginative storytelling. Go buy it.


  • Ian

    Gorgeously drawn hardboiled super-powered revenge story. Definitely one of the best ongoing super-hero books on the market.


  • Laura

    Fiffe is a talented writer and artist. I get the comparisons to Suicide Squad, the ragtag bunch of kinda baddies lumped together as an under-the-radar government department to fight big baddies. However, when I was reading it, I was reminded more of Civil War comics. Starting with a big tragedy (lots of civilians killed) due to the interference of people with superpowers resulting in an upheaval of reactions (leaving the reader trying to figure out what's going on) until the story comes together [...]


  • Brian Salvatore

    About as close to a pure, auteur comic as you'll find


  • Alex

    Cool pencil art with homemade feel. It's a Suicide squad done right. Both character & story wise.


  • Luke

    Easily the best action comic going right now with some of the most interesting art in comics. Highest recommendation.


  • Ethan

    Copra is Michel Fiffe's take on Suicide Squad, specifically the John Ostrander run from the late 80's. Completely self-published. Fiffe's wrote drew, colored, inked etc the whole book and it is completely the vision of one person. The story is pretty good but the real reason to check out Copra is Fiffe's art, which is colorful, expressive, and totally unique. His character design is great, from clearly homage characters to totally original ones composed solely of geometric shapes or a brain in a [...]


  • Eric England

    Copra: Round One by Michael Fiffe is an awesome burst of creativity in graphic novel form. Michael Fiffe self-publishes this series and does everything (write, pencil, ink, color, and letter) himself. This ability to tell a complete story using every element of his artistic expertise sets this series apart from other superhero stories. Fiffe's work can stumble. The dialogue in Copra is often clunky and the art, while striking, sometimes becomes muddled and incoherent. The characters and the plot [...]


  • Nuno Gil Franco

    This has quite some interesting and redeeming qualities going for it. First of all, it's the Suicide Squad. The name on the cover might be Copra, but it's like Ostrander is back writing the book and just decided for a name change, because it's a new era and it's kewl! Second of all, the art. I had never seen Fiffe's art before but it's rough and it's GREAT! It really suits the book and the storytelling and the everything is really nicely done. Story-wise, it's pretty simple: some bad guy did som [...]


  • Anthony

    Interesting. It starts as a sort-of homage to the Suicide Squad, but not really. Fiffe has created original characters based on tropes that can be found across both of the big comic houses. The book itself reminds me a bit of Superfolks by Mayer or BratPack by Veitch. It's not that the comic is cynical or dirty, it's just realistic in its portrayal of the characters. I'm looking for Round Two.


  • D.J.

    Glorious! This book is unbridled comic book passion and joy. The fact that Fiffe does just almost everything on the book (I think he might even grows the trees to make the paper) is beyond impressive. It's just plain fun that brings me back to when I first started reading comics and wish that I could draw and letter and self-publish-- seriously, I don't know how he does it, but I'm glad he does.


  • Stephen Kelley

    This comic has absolutely gorgeous artwork. The art style might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I'd read this comic simply to see the panels TBH. The story was a tad slow-going at first, but built to an awesome third act that off-set any quibbles I might have had. Yeah, it's very Suicide Squad-esque, but honestly it's the best suicide Squad book I've ever read and it's not even from DC!


  • John

    A glittering homage to DC's original "Suicide Squad," with manques for Shade the Changing Man and Marvel's Dr. Strange and Clea thrown in for fun, Copra is a love note to everyone who grew up reading 80s comics.


  • Alex Firer

    3 stars for story and 412 stars for art. This is it. This is the best drawn superhero comic. Sorry earlier holder of that title that issue of the Big Boy hamburger comic that Steve Ditko drew!!!! Big Boy is my favorite superhero.


  • Robert Boyd

    I don't understand what people love about this. Multi-page fight scenes, and I couldn't bring myself to care who wins.


  • Chad Brock

    3.5


  • Selena Beckman-Harned

    Really pretty, really violent and I had no idea what was happening the entire time.


  • Bob Fantastic

    Amazing. Absolutely perfect in every way. The art and characters are great.


  • Jesse

    Decent minimal plot brought to greatness by fantastic art - a mix of avant garde comic art and sidewalk chalk graffiti. The shot in the arm superhero comics so desperately needs right now!


  • John

    Starts out wearing its influences on its sleeves and then quickly goes sleeveless.


  • Michael

    Suicide Sqaud done right.


  • Gary

    Intense artwork and action, weird cryptic fractured super beings, more please!


  • Fred

    One of the best books on the market.


  • James Harris

    Gorgeous, gorgeous art. The story is packed with Mad Things Happening but not much Reason to Care. Lovely art though.
