 Phoenix v4: Karma Review - manga reviews, manga news, manga information, manga comics, manga webcomics, manga artists, ...
Karma is, far and away, the most beautifully illustrated of all the Phoenix volumes.
Don’t misunderstand, Karma is on a whole other level from other entertainment of the same score, but it still disappointed when compared to the general level of excellence of the series.
Karma is still a thoroughly satisfying and uplifting story, not nearly a stumbling block for the series, but it just lacks the perfection of the past couple volumes.

Karma Incorporated is different, because after writing issue 1, I knew it was getting published.
Without independent comics, a lot of the most iconic figures in the industry would never have gotten the chance to be seen.
Within indie comics, you have a large artistic community creating stories completely unfettered by all the fears that come with a large audience and a large publisher.

 comicreaders.com - Karma Incorporated #1 (of 3)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Karma Incorporated is not the most solid, well-planned comic I’ve read.
The main problem with this is that we don’t know anything about Karma Inc. We aren’t given much time to admire the mischief Karma Inc. manufactures, and the inherent humor behind this angle of the concept.
We’re asked much too quickly to judge Karma Inc. for what they do, or empathize with them for hating it, when we haven’t really watched them in action, or seen any of the risks of the job.

“Karma Incorporated is the story of five people who start a business, dedicated to wrecking havoc on ordinary people's lives,” he explains when asked about the premise of his book.  “I like to think of it as a non-lethal hitman service.  They won't kill you, but you'll sure wish you were dead after they're done.
Hopkins surely had some fun himself while coming up with the story and the world of Karma Inc., though the end result is quite different from the initial premise he concocted when starting work on the script.
Yet, Karma Inc. ultimately found a home at Viper, which, appears to be the place where the writer/creator wanted his project to end up all along.

 Question 31 from "The Soul-Winner's Handy Guide"
Some Eastern religions and philosophies hold on to the belief that life is a process of birth, death and rebirth in which one's station in life depends on one's karma or the works he had done in his past life.
Thirdly, life's suffering is not the result of bad past karma but rather in accordance to the foreknowledge and purpose of God.
Some people are born blind, deaf or retarded, not because of some bad, past karma but because God may want to restrain them from their destructive potential or He may use such handicaps to help these people come to know Him.

 Comic Book Resources - CBR News - The Comic Wire
Coming this summer, "Karma Incorporated" is a new mini-series about a team of people who balance the scales, from the minds of writer David Hopkins and artist Tom Kurzanski.
The premise of "Karma Incorporated" in some ways seems to advocate the idea of "an eye for an eye" and that isn't accidental, explains Hopkins.
The first issue of "Karma Incorporated" teases at a lot of long-term plot lines and it almost seems too much to finish in three issues, though Hopkins says it wraps up neatly.

Seriously, some of these ongoing-story comics move so slow since they only get 3 panels a day, and on the one day that they do get more (Sunday) they waste it on some alternate 1-day crap.
Not like I care; I read the comics, but just so I can be entertained while I'm eating breakfast, not because I care about the stories, which is another reason manga shouldn't be in newspapers.
However, since ADV is currently making a nice chunk of change from the manga, I think they would rightfully be reluctant to give it away for free in the newspaprs.
