In Memoriam: Carlos Ezquerra; 1947-2018

By | Dec 27, 2018 | Longform

The thing about Carlos Ezquerra’s designs is that they shouldn’t work. Just look at Judge Dredd, with the dozens of little details that compose his uniform, all the bits and pieces of armor, the ornate eagle on shoulder, the badge and the chain, the little X on the visor…. And even more counterintuitively is that […]

“Star Wars: Age of Republic Special”

By | Jan 18, 2019 | Reviews

The Disney/Marvel/Star Wars love connection has mainly focused on a narrow set of years in the grand Star Wars universe. That would be the years 13 BBY to 2 ABY, a time period that could be loosely called the Rise of the Empire Era. But Star Wars is bigger than that and the new “Age […]

Robots From Tomorrow – Episode 226: X-Force by Milligan and Allred

By and | Sep 10, 2015 | Podcasts

Black Ops Sports Team. That was the pitch for “X-Force” as part of the spring 2001 relaunch of the X-Men line, stuck somewhere between Claremont’s “X-Treme” and Casey’s “Uncanny.” A Vertigo mainstay and an indie cartoonist doing an X-Book?
