“Lovecraft Unknown Kadath” #1

By | Sep 16, 2022 | Reviews

Picking up a dusty tome of HP Lovecraft fiction from the used bookstore, or flipping through the pages of some impenetrable compendium of his at the local library is a veritable rite of passage into weird geekdom. Since his prolific career began about a century ago, Lovecraft has ushered hundreds, thousands, and millions into the […]

“Sacrament” #1

By | Aug 5, 2022 | Reviews

The devil works hard, but Peter Milligan and Marcelo Frusin work harder in “Sacrament” #1. Bold genre mashups are often flashy with an intriguing premise, but with little substance beyond the conceit that two things that don’t go together are now…together! “Sacrament” #1, however, delivers. The first issue has a lot going for it, and […]

“Dark Spaces: Wildfire” #1

By | Jul 22, 2022 | Reviews

Earlier this spring we caught wind of IDW’s plans to drop nine new, all original stories over the course the summer and coming year. This is a big move, and it looks like IDW is trying to build a lot of hype around these new slate of stories. Today we’re reviewing the first of these […]

“Absolution” #1

By | Jul 8, 2022 | Reviews

If I may confess: sometimes we don’t get the chance to scour upcoming comics listings to find the perfect thing to review. Sometimes, we choose what to review because the name sounds cool. In the case of “Absolution” #1, I did just that. I’m a sucker for one word comic titles and absolution is a […]

“Where Starships Go To Die” #1

By | Jun 10, 2022 | Reviews

“Where Starships Go to Die” #1 definitely goes for glory in this story, pulling from climate apocalypse, deep space, deep sea, and alien invasion themes to put together a plotline that has the makings of an epic tale. While the story has its high points and is nothing if not ambitious, at times “Where Starships […]

“Spectro”

By | May 27, 2022 | Reviews

“Spectro” from AfterShock is unlike most other comics we review here, but it’s a welcome change of pace and a buffet platter of sci-fi, speculative space horror. “Spectro” is anthology collection of four stories, all penned, painted and generally processed by Juan Doe. This is a passion project, and the outpouring of a singular mind […]

“Grim” #1

By | May 13, 2022 | Reviews

Spring is upon us (at least in the northern hemisphere), meaning that summer is just around the corner. Popsicles, sunshine, bliss, jean shorts, fun and flirtations — that’s the promise of spring and summer. “Grim” #1 is a far cry from any of that, and instead opens in the biting cold on an icy road […]

“Vanity” #1

By | Apr 15, 2022 | Reviews

Bring on the blood! “Vanity” #1 promises a dark, aesthetically driven history of the Countess of Bathory, a somewhat obscure regent from the Kingdom of Hungary during the late 16th and early 17th centuries. This was a time of upheaval, political subterfuge, enlightenment, and religious turmoil. Elizabeth of Bathory would probably have faded into the […]

“Cities of Magick” #1

By | Mar 31, 2022 | Reviews

Co-creators Will Tempest and Jakob Free are certainly living up to their last names, because “Cities of Magick” #1 feels like an expressionist storm of a story, drawing from steam-punk, sci-fi, fantasy, throw-everything-at-the-wall influences. It’s unclear exactly what kind of comic this is so far — sweeping epic, satire, character study, world-building aesthetic eye candy. […]
