Read full description of the books:
Rarely have I been so entirely unaffected by a book I actually finished. The best thing I can say about Heavy Liquid is that it was short, but I don't have anything really horrible to say about it either. Paul Pope is not a great talent. His dialogue is damningly sparse and his artwork isn't kinetic enough to convey the action it's supposed to, so the story feels plodding when it should spark and muddy during ostensible moments of clarity/revelation. The relationships and archetypes are stamped on, and nothing more: Lover, Sidekick, Bad Guy, Really Bad Guy. I kept waiting for something to surprise me, and nothing did.
If there's a good bit to Heavy Liquid, it's the chapter intros. They're designed as dramatis personae, catalogue pages, TV Guide articles. They hint at a rich, fully realized world somewhere in Pope's head that he just can't quite commit to paper. This book was Eisner nominated, and I get the feeling that's because of the pricing guide to the protagonist's "tricentennial boots." That, or it was just a thoroughly lackluster year for comics.
