“Scalped” Vol. 1

By | May 21, 2020 | Reviews

Vertigo will go down in history as one of the greatest comic book imprints of all time, and while it was sad to see it go in January of 2020 (serving as an appetizer to what would turn out to be an incredibly crappy year) it is understandable. Vertigo was originally created in 1993 to […]

“Daredevil” #170-172

If you ask any comic book fan worth their salt to give their opinion on Frank Miller you’ll probably get something along the lines of “Well, he used to be good, but he’s not anymore” and that’s a pretty fair statement. In fact, I honestly think that Holy Terror is one of the most offensive […]

“Youngblood” #1

By | Apr 23, 2020 | Reviews

I love Image Comics, mostly because I love the idea that forms the company’s values and beliefs. Ever since their foundation in 1992 their core philosophy has been that the creative types who pour their own sweat, tears, and grey matter onto the page in order to produce comics should own the stuff they create. […]

“DMZ” Vol. 1

By | Apr 16, 2020 | Reviews

Let’s take things back to the year 2006, a simpler time when all we ever had to worry about was global terrorism, two massive and illegal wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the end of personal liberty as we know it, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe was still a year away. But hey, at least Americans […]

“Chew” #1

By | Apr 9, 2020 | Reviews

You know what I hate most about this particular time of social distancing and quarantine? Not being able to eat out. Sure, food delivery is a thing, but I don’t want to add $10 plus tip to the price of my food and cooking for myself is such a chore. Also, while the governments of […]

“Hidden Society” #2

By | Mar 27, 2020 | Reviews

Folks, I’m not going to lie. The world is pretty scary right now and while it will get better, it looks like we’ve got some time before that happens. Honestly, it’s kind of surreal seeing a literal comic book plot play out in real life but if there’s one thing I know, it’s that the […]

“Judge Dredd: 100 Page Giant” #1

By | Mar 13, 2020 | Reviews

I like Judge Dredd. More specifically, I like the world that has been built around the character and the opportunities for different types of stories set in the dystopian urban hellscape that is Mega City One. You can have over the top satire mixed with heart wrenching emotional tragedy, sweeping epics paired with snapshots of […]

“Mirka Andolfo’s Mercy” #1

By | Mar 6, 2020 | Reviews

Properly critiquing a book like “Mercy” #1 is difficult because it is very clear that not only is this a book that is a labor of auteur love from the sole writer, penciler, and colorist, it’s a book that feels like a book that was meant for a more European audience with different tastes in […]
