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. Dammit Riverdale!
"Finger Guns" is a new series from Vault Comics that promises to take the titular, innocuous hand gesture and make you think twice about its possible power. But the story is about far more than just going pew pew and having something actually happen.
100 episodes of Supergirl. If you had asked me when I took over this column from Alice back at the start of season 3, I would have told you this show wouldn’t last past season three. The writing never knew what it wanted to be, the villains always half-baked, and the pacing all over the place.
I’ve never been as simultaneously full of theories, vindicated, and utterly pissed at half the characters as I am this week. WOW. I’d never call Riverdale a high caliber show but this week hit all the right buttons. I’m excited for the back half and you all should be too.
Katy Keene begins tonight -- tomorrow as I’m writing this -- having forgone the usual backdoor pilot stage that other CW shows have gotten in the past, The Flash anybody? We’re treated to a small taste of the character rather than the show and, while I do not have the time for one more CW show to watch (8 might just be my limit. . .and 75% of their slate,) I’ve got high hopes.
The webcomic creator is never far from their audience. Be it through social media, public email addresses, Discord servers, or simply the comments section beneath a page, there is a rapport and a conversation that is developed that is unique to the medium. We’re continuing those conversations here, albeit a little more formally, by interviewing […]
The bells have rung, the room is silent, and all await the speaker with baited breath. School is back in session after a bit of a break at “Blackwood” with “The Mourning After” and nothing will be the same again. . .unless you’re Dean Ogden. Then things are probably the same. If you slept on […]
As a former Quizbowl player, seeing this competition made my day. Sure, it’s nothing like that game, built more for television and modeled after those shows, but seeing a competition between schools come down not to a physical challenge but a mental one was great. . .if only there wasn’t the constant threat of cheating hanging over the competition.
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 […]
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.
You’d think, with a title like “Back from the Future: Part 1,” we’d have had an episode that felt like the start of a two hour special instead of a run of the mill episode. You’d think, but no. I’m disappointed in you Supergirl. I was expecting more.
A little over a month ago, we learned some major reveals about Betty. Now we’re learning just how far the rot goes and it is DEEP and entrenched. Can Betty prove it before Jug supposedly bites the big one?
