“Britannia: We Who Are About to Die” #3

By | Jun 23, 2017 | Reviews

So much happens in this issue of “Britannia.” Most of it was awesome, but by the end I was sort of exhausted. Part of my thinks that the story could have been paced differently, but in the age of decompressed comics, “Britannia: We Who Are About to Die” #3 is refreshingly dense. Written by Peter […]

“Swordquest” burned through a ton of plot in the series’ prequel(ish) #0 chapter.

“Aquaman” #25

By | Jun 22, 2017 | Reviews

Dan Abnett’s Aquaman run has been serviceable for its run, treating the character with respect and giving him interesting conflicts. But it takes more than that to conflict with the public image this character has dragged around for so long. Stjepan Sejic, in that regard, is the missing element.
