“Barbarella” #1

By | Dec 8, 2017 | Reviews

Barbarella is one of the more interesting cult comics of a bygone era. On one hand, it’s bat-shit crazy science fiction envisioned by French creative Jean Claude-Forest and, on the other, it’s got a lot of erotica overtones and potentially dated themes. So when a couple of firmly English-speaking folks come along to this property […]

“Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville” #1

By | Dec 8, 2017 | Reviews

Grant Morrison is a creator known for psychedelic insanity. That can be fun when taken to extremes, but when he’s given a more narrow focus, he does some of his best work. “We3,” “All-Star Superman,” “Animal Man,” and his legendary run on “Batman” are some of his best works, whereas stories like “Final Crisis” are […]

By | Dec 7, 2017 | Reviews

After three stellar issues, things slow down considerably as the secondary characters dig deeper into their individual backstories in the unremarkable underground city of Sogbottom.

“Justice League” #34

By | Dec 7, 2017 | Reviews

After what is generally seen as a middling run on “Justice League” by Bryan Hitch and various artists, a rare misfire in the Rebirth era, the top tier team in the DCU is getting a creative relaunch from writer Christopher Priest and artist Pete Woods. There isn’t a renumber to mark this creative shift, but […]

“Witchblade” #1

By | Dec 7, 2017 | Reviews

Caitlin Kittredge returns to comics with the soft-reboot, sort-of-sequel to the long running series, “Witchblade.” This feels like right in her wheel house and, having read “Coffin Hill,” I was hopeful for her take on this series. I just wish she had learned a bit more from her previous foray into comics before structuring this […]
