“Crimson Flower” #1

By | Jan 22, 2021 | Reviews

The Russian people and Russian culture tends to get a bad rap in comic books, especially in American comics. It’s not that difficult to see why, the Soviet Union was America’s greatest antagonist for a significant part of the 20th century and lots of American media, especially cheap media that was created for children such […]

Happy New Year everyone. Sure, 2020 was garbage and it’s not really looking like 2021 is going to be a whole lot easier, but thankfully we have comics to help us through the tough times and help us stay in place and ride out everything that is happening. Speaking of staying put and the dangers […]

“Kick Ass vs. Hit Girl” #1

By | Nov 12, 2020 | Reviews

I was never the biggest fan of the Kick Ass franchise, but I liked the movies and I understand why it’s popular. Mark Millar’s violent, bloody, and kind of icky take on superheroes is a definite product of its time in that it provided a deconstructionist view of the sub genre that showed audiences that […]

“Dune: House Atreides” #1

By | Oct 22, 2020 | Reviews

I was very excited for the new Dune movie that was going to be coming out this year. Everyone involved seemed to be a fan of the books, the studio had pulled out all the stops when it came to money, and the trailer looked awesome. We were going to get a massive, glorious, and […]

“Getting it Together” #1

By | Oct 9, 2020 | Reviews

Fair warning: This comic portrays and discusses sexual activity in fairly graphic fashion and as a result is for readers over the age of 18. Comic books, especially American comic books, tend to live off of spectacle and action. For most Americans, the default vision of a comic book usually involves a muscle bound hero/heroine, […]

Remember when the X-Men were a relatively simple cast of characters that were a powerful and effective stand in for discussing race relations and bigotry in 20th century America? Well, now the X-Men have their own nation on the sentient island of Krakoa and while it has proven to be a haven for mutantkind, dark […]

“Cyberpunk 2077 Trauma Team” #1

By | Sep 11, 2020 | Reviews

I don’t follow video games for reasons that we will not get into here, but even I’m aware of CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 through the considerable amount of hype that it’s generated. I’ll admit, the idea of playing through an incredibly detailed and fantastic cyberpunk world sounds like a lot of fun. However, I’m […]
