Five Thoughts on Riverdale‘s “How to Get Away with Murder”

By | Feb 27, 2020 | Television

It’s been three seasons but Riverdale is back to riding high on that good, good murder pulp. It’s been a while since the show’s fired on all cylinders like this week. It only took a half season’s worth of build up and a bit of faffing about to really lay the groundwork. Much as I loathe to admit it, this story wouldn’t have worked as well in a shorter season.

Five Thoughts on Riverdale‘s “Men of Honor”

By | Feb 6, 2020 | Television

Interview with “The Resistance”: JMS and Mike Deodato on Their New Universe

By | Jan 29, 2020 | Interviews

Living up to it’s name, the new company, Artists, Writers, and Artisans (AWA) is launching their own superhero universe, a term that’s, perhaps, a poor descriptor the genre. Keeping things simple to start, they’re beginning with one title among their four: “The Resistance,” a six-issue miniseries by J. Michael Straczynski, Mike Deodato, Frank Martin, and […]

“The Fearsome Doctor Fang”

By | Jan 28, 2020 | Reviews

TKO Studios burst onto the scene late in 2018 with a new business model: 4 titles, six issues each, released in single, trade, and digital format all at once. As such, they fell out of our usual review cycle. Let’s rectify that and see if the pulp-inspired Wave 1 title is as fearsome as its title suggests.
