Ruinworld #1

By | Jul 12, 2018 | Reviews

There is something about books that are written, drawn and coloured by the same artist. Not only are they few and far between, but they also share that sense of unity and cohesion that only the best multi-artist partnerships can show otherwise. What Derek Laufman delivered on the first full issue of “Ruinworld” is a […]

“Man of Steel” #4

By | Jun 21, 2018 | Reviews

As the weekly series by Bendis and some of comics best artists reaches its second half, it becomes absolutely clear that the writer has an unique and true voice for Superman and that the artist choice for each issue is more than a “who’s who” on DC’s roster. Written by Brian Michael Bendis Illustrated by […]

“The Unexpected” #1, the last new series launching under the ‘New Age of Heroes’ banner by DC introduces new characters, settings and concepts, some of them based on the constructs first introduced during the ‘Metal’ event.

“The Last Siege”, the most recent series to be launched by Image, offers a blend of narrative styles on its first issue as it introduces a new world and characters.

“The Flash” #47

By | May 24, 2018 | Reviews

There have been many “heroes versus heroes” storylines from publishers over the last couple of years. While it is surely entertaining to see fan-favorite heroes going at it, those events can come up short if the motivations behind these differences are too contrived or not meaningful enough. With that in mind, it is certainly a […]

“A Walk through Hell” #1

By | May 17, 2018 | Reviews

“A Walk through Hell” #1, the new book by Garth Ennis in collaboration with Goran Sudzuka, is another prime example of what the famous writer can do to surprise its audience. With an issue that is mostly setup and focus on lead characters, this is a ride that grabs readers early on and doesn’t let […]

“Justice League No Justice” #1

By | May 10, 2018 | Reviews

A new event from DC, so closely released to the end of “Metal,” could easily earn the tag of more-of-the-same. However, what Snyder, Williamson, and Tynion with artist Francis Manapul have done, is anything but. This is how you keep the excitement after a successful storyline alive, feeding into a broader publishing line and beyond. […]

By | May 3, 2018 | Reviews

Tom King, Tony Daniel, and team continue to narrate the convoluted story of how and why Booster Gold wants to give Batman a wedding gift. Unfortunately, not only is Booster’s plan extremely confusing, but the issue also fails to come together as a believable whole. Written by Tom King Pencilled by Tony S. Daniel Inked […]

“Infidel” #2

By | Apr 20, 2018 | Reviews

The haunting story of Aisha and her extended family continues with issue 2 of “Infidel,” as reality and the supernatural seemingly converge. Beyond the excellent script and art, what makes this sophomore issue (and series) so harrowing is how the real-world aspects of its horror are even stronger than any monster and ghoul that the […]
