The Webcomics Weekly #114: Webcomic Sweep (11/24/2020 Edition)

By | Nov 24, 2020 | Reviews

I hope everyone is staying safe this week as it's Thanksgiving here in the States. Maybe celebrate by reading some comics by Indigenous/Native/First Nations peoples instead of the pilgrims with a bird they wouldn't have eaten this year. Anyway! Webcomics! We got the continuation of "Lavender Jack," some "Kwi Comics," a different look at a comic from last week "The First Night with the Duke" and Elias' continued project of writing way too many words about the adaptation differences of "Tower of God" and Tower of God. Enjoy y'all!

“Juggernaut” #3

By | Nov 20, 2020 | Reviews

I hear creators of classic comics (especially “X-Men” comics) talking a lot of smack about contemporary books. Some of them, like Chris Claremont, have arguably earned the right. Others, like Rob Liefeld, have definitely not. But one person who you never hear say a bad word about anyone is Fabian Nicieza. Instead, he seems to […]

“Sea of Sorrows” #1

By | Nov 19, 2020 | Reviews

“Sea of Sorrows” #1 paints a sordid world full of ink black seas, mercenary sailors, underwater horrors, and the terrors of a recently fought war. Grim fare indeed, but it makes for solid, gather-round-the-table storytelling. Grab your ale, don your raincoat, head to the port and sing your favorite sea shanty of love lost and […]

“Dracula, Motherf**ker”

By | Nov 17, 2020 | Reviews

Vampires, and Dracula in particular, go through cycles. We’re seeing a resurgence again after a long fallow period and this means that we get both derivative works and wild and fun takes on the characters (like this one.) So break out your bell bottoms, prepare for paisley, and get ready for everything to be on the verge of a bad trip in “Dracula, Motherf**ker.”

There are but a few people instrumental to the success of early Hollywood cinema to remain as discussed, or perhaps better said, to remain as ingrained in the culture of American film as the great Lon Chaney. Known the world over as “The Man of a Thousand Faces,” his versatility as a performer in the […]
