Plastic Man. The man, the myth, the legend. A true hero, one who lives on in the hearts of millions, one who wasn’t missing for close to 6 years during the New 52 and Rebirth. Yes, that’s right.

“Infidel” #2

By | Apr 20, 2018 | Reviews

The haunting story of Aisha and her extended family continues with issue 2 of “Infidel,” as reality and the supernatural seemingly converge. Beyond the excellent script and art, what makes this sophomore issue (and series) so harrowing is how the real-world aspects of its horror are even stronger than any monster and ghoul that the […]

“Amazing Spider-Man” #799

By | Apr 20, 2018 | Reviews

One hundred issues ago, Dan Slott killed Peter Parker. A hundred issues before that, he presided over Peter’s Aunt May marrying the father of J. Jonah Jameson. My point is twofold. First: holy crap, Dan Slott really and truly has been writing “Spider-Man” for a good long time. The second is that this isn’t the […]

“Her Infernal Descent” #1

By | Apr 19, 2018 | Reviews

It seems that Aftershock have had a habit lately of combining their titles with themes of horror or hellish tones. From “Blood Blister” to “Babyteeth,” these themes, especially tied in with an underlying theme of family, have become very prevalent. So when I saw “Her Infernal Descent” solicited, a comic about a mother travelling to […]

“Action Comics” #1000

By | Apr 18, 2018 | Reviews

Anniversaries like this don’t happen all the time. In fact, it’s never happened before. One thousand issues of “Action Comics” is something that likely never seemed possible to even the most optimistic comic fan in 1938, or 1958, or even 1988. But this has been inevitable for some time now, and DC has had plenty […]

Rob Liefeld. Upon hearing that name, many comic fans will be split down the middle. Many will cringe at his absurd anatomical work, his love of cross hatching or his disregard for the human foot. Others will grin at the fond memories they have with his work, how it exploded with energy and felt like […]

“Magpie”

By | Apr 16, 2018 | Reviews

“Magpie” is a book that has more in common with poetry anthologies than it does with graphic novels. There’s a flightiness to the collection that makes it hard to put in on the same shelf as other pieces of graphic fiction. Which is not to say the art isn’t good (it is), or the short, […]
