“Bloodshot: Reborn” #0

By | Mar 24, 2017 | Reviews

“Bloodshot: Reborn” #0 exists in an odd space. Do not be fooled by the numerical designation, this is not the beginning but the end…again. Like I said, an odd space. For all intents and purposes, Jeff Lemire’s overall run of his “Bloodshot: Reborn” arc ended with the final issue of miniseries, “Bloodshot: USA.” But it […]

“Anno Dracula: 1895 – Seven Days in Mayhem” #1

By | Mar 24, 2017 | Reviews

I don’t know why I haven’t read Kim Newman’s Anno Dracula. I’ve always wanted to; it combines my love of alternate history with my love of a good old fashioned Victorian monster mash. Then it turns into a long-form vampire epic, following bloodsucking immortals through the centuries of history. That all sounds like my jam! […]

Five Thoughts on Arrow‘s “Kapiushon”

By | Mar 23, 2017 | Television

Arrow is trying very hard to make Prometheus/Adrian Chase feel like the character-defining villain that we’ve seen the other big bads be over the past few seasons. This episode goes a long way to developing that idea – but how successfully? Keep reading to find out, and I guess, spoiler-warning? 1. The ‘confession’ Prometheus’s whole […]

“Iron Fist” #1

By | Mar 14, 2017 | Longform

The relationship between hip-hop and comics is unfortunately one-sided. Hip-hop loves comics, adores it even. Cannibal Ox constantly reference Caped Crusaders and Web Slingers in their lyrics, MF DOOM’s entire aesthetic is owed to Marvel, Ghostface Killah’s debut solo album is called Ironman and uses Tony Starks as alias. There are rappers named after characters […]
