Friday Recommendation – Brit

By | Jun 4, 2010 | Columns

My love of all things that include the words “creator” “owned” “Robert” and “Kirkman” should come as a surprise to no one (except for Haunt…for the life of me I can’t get into it.) While being FAR from his most absurd creator owned character (that award goes to Battle Pope which, rest assured, will get […]

By | Jun 3, 2010 | Columns

It has now been exactly one year since the post-Battle for the Cowl relaunch of the Batman titles under the Batman: Reborn banner. Books were cancelled, new books were launched, and previously existing books were dramatically changed in the aftermath of Batman R.I.P. Follow the jump for my personal opinions on the best and worst […]

A Crisis of Chronology: New Krypton

By | May 31, 2010 | Columns

If you caught this past week’s reviews at Multiversity, you should know that the massive New Krypton saga had finally ended and that I was a big fan of it. However, despite DC’s best efforts with their Free Comic Book Day offering, War of the Supermen #0, the final stand for the New Kryptonians was […]

Gilbert’s Got You Covered!

By | May 30, 2010 | Columns

Welcome to another edition of Burpee’s Got You Covered, this time featuring everyone’s favorite me….ME! Burpee couldn’t make it due to a family emergency, and this being one of my favorite columns, I volunteered to step up! So do I like? Will Adi Granov continue his dominance? Will we even SEE an X-Men cover? Well, […]

Small Press Spotlight: Night Fisher

By | May 25, 2010 | Columns

Article originally written by Steve Ponzo R. Kikuo Johnson’s debut graphic novel, Night Fisher, is a compelling yet unsentimental coming of age story. It’s a portrait of awkward adolescence on the cusp of adulthood illustrated with the darker, more realistic tones of teenage life. Night Fisher is filled with bold artwork, psychological intricacies, and mature […]

Friday Recommendation: The Flash

By | May 21, 2010 | Columns

This week’s Friday recommendation is something a little different. As opposed to an old graphic novel or an arc that you don’t remember, I’m going to the roots of the article and recommending a new ongoing title that has quickly become one of my favorites. The Flash is an interesting character. Well loved by the […]

Small Press Spotlight: Daniel Clowes’ Wilson

By | May 18, 2010 | Columns

In this week’s Small Press Spotlight, I take a look at a recent release from Drawn and Quarterly by legendary creator Daniel Clowes (Ghost World, Art School Confidential). His book Wilson was just released on April 27th, but it’s already earning him praise for everything from the diverse artwork to the misanthropic and incredibly memorable lead […]

The Short Report: Dissecting a Perfect Score

By | May 18, 2010 | Columns

This past week, I did something I thought I’d never do. I gave a book (The Luna Brothers’ final issue to The Sword) a perfect score. What followed was a little criticism (of my critique!), with some pointing out that the book didn’t deserve a perfect score, but instead should have gotten a score much […]

By | May 16, 2010 | Columns

You get a double-dose of Walter today as I step in for Burpee and give you my opinions on the best covers of the past week. Will we be seeing the standard chart-toppers of Finch and Granov, or will I be bringing you something completely different? Well the only way to find out is to […]

The Rulk Stands Revealed – Now What?

By | May 15, 2010 | Columns

Remember this guy? The Rulk is one of the only characters alive who is almost entirely mutually loathed, if only for his complete lack of any kind of redeeming qualities. Created a little over two years ago in Hulk #1 by Jeph Loeb and Ed McGuinness, the Rulk has been a boon for Marvel’s sales […]

Soundtrack to Your Geekout – Volume #1, Track #2

By | May 15, 2010 | Columns

Alright, full disclosure admittance/clarification of something not clarified last week: the comics and tracks I pick for this column do not follow any kind of specified “if this, then…” formula. In other words, from week to week either the comic will come first in my thought process and have a piece of music paired with […]
