Legion was praised for being not just another in a long line of comics adaptations, but something unique and unexpected. Peter Milligan seems like a great fit to be writing […]

The Clayface story in “Detective Comics” has been one of the best, and most underrated, stories since ‘Rebirth’ begin. Basil’s story, told masterfully by James Tynion IV and a slew of artists, hasn’t felt forced at all, and has unfolded so interestingly over the past 30+ issues. It seems tragic that he is resorting back […]

“Gumballs” is an autobiographical comic by Erin Nations, which features lots of short stories of various styles in each installment.
