“Excalibur: Air Apparent”

By | May 29, 2020 | Reviews

There have been a lot of X-teams over the years, and while it can be easy to confuse your X-Force with your X-Factor, it’s hard to mistake Excalibur for anything else (perhaps in part because they don’t call themselves X-Calibur). The team first launched in 1987 and has had several iterations over the years, including […]

“Only A Poor Old Man”

By | May 28, 2020 | Reviews

“Only A Poor Old Man” largely defined the most famous character invented by one of America’s most important comic book creators. That is a heavy claim to make, but anything else would be an understatement. The first comic with Scrooge McDuck as the main character is maybe not Carl Barks’ absolute best work, but one […]

“Nemesis”

By | May 28, 2020 | Reviews

In 2011 Mark Millar and Steve McNiven set out to ask a very interesting question. What if you took a character with nearly limitless wealth, intelligence, and resources, like a Bruce Wayne or Tony Stark; but rather than using these things to help those in need of saving, they became the ultimate super villain just […]

Two of the biggest names in the manga industry are undoubtedly Osamu Tezuka and Naoki Urasawa. Both have a body of work that, whilst a generation apart, are nearly completely critically acclaimed.

“Geisha”

By | May 22, 2020 | Reviews

Androids indistinguishable from humans may not yet exist, but they are a prevalent force in science fiction. There are many tales of one robot’s struggle to fit in with human society, but few are handled as elegantly and humanely as Andi Watson’s “Geisha”. In four chapters and less than 100 pages, Watson explores themes of […]

“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 […]

“Afterlife with Archie” #6-10

By | May 21, 2020 | Reviews

With “Afterlife with Archie”’s first arc giving audiences Archie comics like never before, and proving a hit critically and commercially, the desire for more of its horrific version of Riverdale was huge. Shortly after the second arc started, Aguirre-Sacasa launched “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” too, leaving “Afterlife with Archie”’s second arc to be published over […]

The Webcomics Weekly #87: Nine Realms to Rule Them All (5/19/2020 Edition)

By | May 19, 2020 | Reviews

My typing fingers are slowly seizing up from all this work from home but I push on, for you all, and for the good of the column. I find myself wondering what "A Better Place" might be like. Would I find it in "Realm Nine" or while "Trekker"-ing to the "Order of the Stick" to cure my "Bloodclot?" Would I find out that "My Black's Don't Match?" I certainly hope not. I take pride in my ability to match black with black.

If this pandemic has done anything, it has made us all think about the effects our actions, and the actions of others, have. Increased hand washing, face masks, and social distancing have made us consider the domino effect of simple actions like going to the supermarket or getting the mail. It has also, if you’re […]

“Adamtine”

By | May 15, 2020 | Reviews

Many comics, particularly superhero ones, rely on bright, engaging visuals to catch the reader’s eye on the shelf. “Adamtine” distinctly does not, harnessing the power of dark tones to give the thriller comic an almost crushing tension. What begins as a seemingly innocuous train ride quickly descends into a glimpse into the void for all […]

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 […]
