The April Fool has come and gone and, in its absence, has left us with a five webcomics to ring in the new season, two returners and three new ones. Tiny dungeons are explored, unsettling halls are traversed, strange tales are told, lost nightmares are found and gym rats flex their way through their reps. What better way to spend the day after the internet becomes one giant joke than to read some internet native stories that show you just how serious it can be?
Welcome back all you Supergirl fans! You know, for an episode called “All About Eve,” there’s very little Eve Tessmacher in it and, instead, we focused on Jimmy, J’onn and Lena. Don’t get me wrong, this wasn’t the worst decision they could have made nor was a particularly bad one, it’s just a baffling decision considering the title. Maybe the next episode will be called All About Lex and feature exclusively footage of Superman on New Krypton. I’d watch that.
Imagine, if you will, a vortex of the worst luck imaginable. The anti-Domino. The living embodiment of Murphy’s Law. Drop them into a crime thriller, complete with cults and an insurance investigator and what do you have? A hell of a first issue is what. Oh, and there may be a few spoilers ahead. Written […]
Welcome back all you Riverdale fans! My TV says the episode is called “The Master” but everywhere else is calling it “The Raid” so SOMEONE fucked up somewhere. . .which, honestly, is the theme of this episode so I gotta say, well done.
As always, spoilers ahead.
Welcome back all you Supergirl fans! This week, just like Arrow, we’re taking a bit of a detour away from our main character to focus on Supergirl’s equivalent of the flash-forwards. . .kinda. Sorta. I wish it was more like Arrow and I’m honestly ashamed of myself for saying that. But hey, season 7’s been […]
Welcome back all you Riverdale fans! The second musical episode is upon us and it’s got some big fun for us. Now, I haven’t ever seen Heathers despite my friend’s love for the movie, nor have I seen the musical version, so I have no idea how many of these songs are covers and how […]
“Farmhand” is back and so are the crazy background signs! That’s it. That’s the whole review. 10/10. Wait, you want an actual review? With measured thought? Bah, fine. But don’t expect the score to be nearly as good. Written and Illustrated by Rob Guillory Colored by Taylor Wells Lettered by Kody Chamberlain The hit ongoing […]
Welcome back all you Supergirl fans! After four season, we’ve finally got our Lex Luthor, a character no one was asking to see nor that we needed but, well, here we are, with yet ANOTHER big villain for the season. You had a good thing going Supergirl. It wasn’t perfect, it certainly wasn’t escapist TV, […]
The quarterly may be a rare bird in today’s marketplace, oh how I miss “Vertigo Quarterly,” but Andrew Maclean has made it his schedule of choice. With issue #11, he brings us the third chapter in the ‘The Knights of Venora’ act. How does it stack up to the rest? Read on, fair adventurers, but be warned, there be spoilers ahead.
Welcome back all you Riverdale fans! Fifty episodes. That’s quite the milestone. Coming from the current comics world, that’s quite the number. Not quite as impressive in TV terms — 100 is more of a milestone — but still, for as show that was dubbed on launch by fans, and detractors, as “The Sexy Archie […]
Welcome back all you Supergirl fans! After a couple weeks of missteps and unfocused plotting, we’re finally getting back on track. While there were still moments when I checked out, mostly when Menagerie was on screen, on the whole, this felt like a return to form of the first half of the season. Plus, we […]
Hear, O Prince, of the tale of the Hyrkanian devil. Hear how she became Queen of the mud, of the dust, and the treacherous. Feel the laughter that flows through these pages, for underestimating the devil is what leads to a long stay in hell. Written by Mark Russell Illustrated by Mirko Colak Colored by […]
