“Her Infernal Descent” #1

By | Apr 19, 2018 | Reviews

It seems that Aftershock have had a habit lately of combining their titles with themes of horror or hellish tones. From “Blood Blister” to “Babyteeth,” these themes, especially tied in with an underlying theme of family, have become very prevalent. So when I saw “Her Infernal Descent” solicited, a comic about a mother travelling to […]

“Action Comics” #1000

By | Apr 18, 2018 | Reviews

Anniversaries like this don’t happen all the time. In fact, it’s never happened before. One thousand issues of “Action Comics” is something that likely never seemed possible to even the most optimistic comic fan in 1938, or 1958, or even 1988. But this has been inevitable for some time now, and DC has had plenty […]

Five Thoughts on Legion‘s “Chapter 11”

By | Apr 18, 2018 | Television

The episode may be titled “Chapter 11”, but Legion hasn’t gone creatively bankrupt yet. Sorry about that. But seriously, this week’s episode did have a couple uncharacteristic missteps, but on the whole it continues to be a fascinatingly straightforward heroes journey for David. As always, there will be spoilers, so please watch the episode before […]

Hey Comics! What’s Good? #13

1. How good Stuart Immonen is at drawing. Stuart Immonen is a really great artist (inked here, as he usually is, by Wade Von Grawbadger). One of the things that makes him great is how everything he draws reflects serious thought about the things he’s drawing. Like, sometimes you forget how impressive it is that […]

“What Will You Have After 500 Years?” A Look Back at “Invincible” and How I Got into Comics

By | Apr 10, 2018 | Longform

With the final issue of “Invincible” having come out earlier this year, and the final trade paperback being released a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to look back on the series. “Invincible” is, without hyperbole, the reason that I read comics. Like many things that people find in their early adolescence, “Invincible” shaped my […]

Fourth World Problems

By | Apr 3, 2018 | Longform

The New Gods are having a moment. Tom King and Mitch Gerads’s “Mister Miracle” 12-issue maxi series is a critical success, and perhaps not inconsequentially, DC Entertainment recently enlisted filmmaker Ava DuVernay to adapt Jack Kirby’s creations for the silver screen. In some ways, Ms. DuVernay is in an unenviable position as The Fourth World, […]

A Young Scientist Is Exposed to Hard Water Fumes, You Won’t Believe What Happens Next

Every superhero has an origin story. Murdered parents, destroyed home world, that sort of thing. Actually, come to think of it, DC’s (arguably) biggest heroes all have origins that relate to their parents.  Batman’s parents died in front of him. Superman’s parents (also dead) sent him to earth to escape their doomed planet. Wonder Woman’s […]
