“Eight Billion Genies” #1

By | May 13, 2022 | Reviews

Pretty much every time you encounter the end of the world in media, there’s nothing fun about it. Sure, there might be tongue-in-cheek elements like the anachronistic music and 50’s design of the Fallout universe. Still, those are usually window dressing to the depressing shell of what society used to be. But what if the […]

“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 […]

“The Jurassic League” #1

By | May 13, 2022 | Reviews

Alternate universe and “what if?” stories can be fun. What would the Justice League look like if they all had different powers? What if Superman landed in Russia instead of America? And now, Juan Gedeon, Daniel Warren Johnson, and Mike Spicer attempt to answer the age-old question: what if the Justice League members were all […]

“Tales from Harrow County: Lost Ones” #1

By | May 12, 2022 | Reviews

For the last two arcs of “Tales from Harrow County,” the series has focused on Bernice Anderson as its protagonist. With ‘Lost Ones’ however, we return to Emmy Crawford, the protagonist from the original “Harrow County” series. While on paper this may appear to be setting up a familiar story in the vein of the […]

By | May 10, 2022 | Reviews

“Giant-Size X-Men: Thunderbird” #1

By | May 6, 2022 | Reviews

I already write thousands of words a month about “X-Men” comics, so volunteering to write some more comes as a bit of a surprise to me. The Mutantversity column is fixated on story and continuity, but it’s rare that I look at an issue with a critical eye, trying to assess it as a comic. […]

“Archer & Armstrong Forever” #1

By | May 6, 2022 | Reviews

In the lean, mean, well put together machine of Valiant’s superhero universe there are the serious superheroes and the funny superheroes. Serious heroes such as Bloodshot or the Eternal Warrior are written and drawn in a pretty straight forward fashion, using their skills and abilities to protect the universe and the people they love while […]

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

By | May 6, 2022 | Reviews

This review may contain minor spoilers. If you’re wondering though: there is an important mid-credits scene, and a post-credits scene that resembles an outtake. One of the most pretentious things a comic book fan can say about an adaptation is that “it’s not how I would’ve done it” — all adaptations are ultimately a person’s […]

“Knights of X” #1

By | Apr 28, 2022 | Reviews

In a genre that feels so beholden to science fiction, it’s always fun to see superheroes fight the magical and mystical. While the X-Men are no strangers to the world of magic, they have had some of their most memorable adventures in the Otherworld in recent years. What sets it apart? A creative team that […]

“Canceled” #1

By | Apr 22, 2022 | Reviews

Horror is an interesting genre, especially for comic books. While comics are most famous for their superhero tales, the horror genre used to be fertile ground for the medium, and companies like E.C Comics created some truly wonderful and creepy stories that have been fondly remembered throughout the ages by millions until they were crippled […]

“The Secret History of the War on Weed” #1

By | Apr 22, 2022 | Reviews

It seems that the stoner comedy might be an artifact of the past. Weed is being legalized across the United States, and the subversive style of Cheech and Chong is now decidedly mainstream. Conversely, America has done the barest minimum to correct the decade long catastrophe that is the “War on Drugs.” It’s the worst […]
