Ten years ago, a project began. A project to bring together heroes from a bygone age and transport them to the modern day. A project that succeeded, if only for a brief moment. Now, after languishing in obscurity, these heroes return to the fore to prevent another world ending disaster, this one more mysterious than […]

“Aquaman” #38

By | Jul 27, 2018 | Reviews

Nailing down Aquaman as a character can be tough. We’ve seen so many different versions of him: the clean-cut undersea Superman of the Super Friends, the wise-cracking surfer dude in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and the version commonly seen in the comics which feels like an underwater Thor. In the ‘King Slayer Saga,’ Dan Abnett […]

“X-Men Grand Design: Second Genesis” #1

By | Jul 27, 2018 | Reviews

Get x-cited x-fans. After thoroughly covering the Silver Age, Ed Piskor has taken his “X-Men: Grand Design” into the Claremont era. This is it. ‘Giant Sized X-Men.’ Thunderbird vs Count Nefaria. The Hellfire Club. The freaking ‘Dark Phoenix Saga.’ Piskor takes his singular style and applies it to what is arguably the greatest run of […]

“Bone Parish” #1

By | Jul 27, 2018 | Reviews

Drugs and Rock and Roll. Two (okay, three) words that have become intertwined in the collective consciousness of America. How fitting, then, that Cullen Bunn’s newest horror series opens not with rock leading to drugs but with drugs leading to rock. And maybe a little bit of bone as well. Caution, there be spoilers ahead. […]

“Mr & Mrs X” #1

By | Jul 27, 2018 | Reviews

Picking up almost exactly where their wedding on “X-Men Gold” started, the first issue of “Mr & Mrs X” delivers on highlighting the beginning of the married life of Rogue and Gambit. However, pacing issues hold the issue back from being exciting. Written by Kelly Thompson Illustrated by Oscar Bazaldua Colored by Frank D’Armata Lettered […]

“The New World” #1

By | Jul 26, 2018 | Reviews

While there are plenty of post-apocalyptic stories on the shelves right now, I don’t think any of them are nearly as colorful as “The New World” #1, Ales Kot and Tradd Moore’s new series. Check out our review as we dive into the world of New California, but be warned, there are some spoilers Written […]

By | Jul 26, 2018 | Reviews

“Teen Titans” #20 is the start of a new era of the title. However, the new direction appears similar in tone. Damian Wayne even retains his position in the starring role. Will this installment be able to stand out from previous incarnations of the title? What do the New 52 “Suicide Squad” creator Adam Glass […]

“Starcraft: Scavengers” #1

By | Jul 26, 2018 | Reviews

The Starcraft video games have always been a source of great intrigue to me. While they looked to have an interesting lore and story like their siblings Warcraft and Diablo, the gameplay always seemed too complicated and impenetrable for me to get into. Now, Dark Horse has partnered up with Blizzard to remedy this, releasing […]

Swiss graphic novel creator Zep, born Philippe Chappuis, has now seen two of his graphic novels in English publication through IDW’s EuroComics line. Last year’s English release of “A Story of Men” dwelt on the implied inferiorities of young rock artists whose failed band reunites twenty years later. A similar spirit of those lingering “what […]

“Ether: The Copper Golems” #3

By | Jul 20, 2018 | Reviews

Ether: The Copper Golems #1 is one of the first books I’ve seen in a while that captured me by the cover alone: Rubin’s beautiful spread of Boone Diaz riding some unusual creature with a backdrop of vibrant blue, red, and green in an unknown world stole my imagination. I knew this was a series […]
