“Sex Death Revolution” #1

By | Nov 1, 2018 | Reviews

Despite the book’s punk rock title, “Sex Death Revolution” #1 is ultimately pretty tame, but don’t let that scare you away. This double-sized debut issue is a decidedly different take on the art of black magic and the human toll it exacts on those who practice it. (Warning: contains minorspoilers.) Written by Magdalene Visaggio Illustrated by Becca […]

It can also be convoluted and unnecessarily contrived. “Olivia Twist” #2 buries its good ideas in a pile of well worn tropes. (Warning: contains minor spoilers.)

“Weatherman” #5

By | Oct 12, 2018 | Reviews

Darkly comedic dialogue, consistently well rendered character designs and Dave Stuart’s wonderful colors all tend to feel a bit squandered in a book that’s losing focus as it comes to the end of the first major story arc. (Warning: contains minorspoilers.) Written by Jody LeHeup Illustrated by Nathan Fox Colored by Dave Stewart Lettered by Steve Wands Nathan Bright […]
