“Uncanny X-Men” #1

By | Nov 16, 2018 | Reviews

It has finally arrived. The much anticipated new volume of “Uncanny X-Men” was released on an extra-sized first issue that harkens back to a narrative style of old, combined with a more modern flare. And while it also brings some of the downside of past eras, it succeeds far more than it falls short. Written […]

“Life Is Strange” #1

By | Nov 15, 2018 | Reviews

When assessing the quality of a comic book adaptation, it’s important to think about the audience and the intent. Sometimes, that’s pretty hard to puzzle out.

“Electric Warriors” #1

By | Nov 15, 2018 | Reviews

DC Comics lore is rich with story potential within its vast narrative tapestry. Like any good superhero universe, it’s packed full of alternate futures, Earths, and other settings, so it seems strange that mainstream DC only focuses on a short amount of time and space. Enter “Electric Warriors” #1. Steve Orlando and Travel Foreman are […]

Wicked Intervention: The Funnies

By | Nov 14, 2018 | Columns

The cover of this “WicDiv” special really says it all- Medusa keeps objectifying people, and Kieron Gillen is addicted to bad puns. By the end of this issue, one of those things is going to become a critical piece of “WicDiv” lore. Funny, one-off issues like this were once a comic book staple, but it […]
