“Chew” #1

By | Apr 9, 2020 | Reviews

You know what I hate most about this particular time of social distancing and quarantine? Not being able to eat out. Sure, food delivery is a thing, but I don’t want to add $10 plus tip to the price of my food and cooking for myself is such a chore. Also, while the governments of […]

“Blue is the Warmest Color”

By | Apr 7, 2020 | Reviews

Ten years after its publication, Julie Maroh’s “Blue is the Warmest Color” (“Le bleu est une couleur chaude,” lit. “Blue is a warm color”) remains a poignant and moving love story that’s been overshadowed by a controversial film adaptation. Be aware that there will be spoilers, even if you have seen the film version. Written […]

“New X-Men” #114-116: ‘E is for Extinction’

By | Apr 3, 2020 | Reviews

In 2019, I decided to really start paying attention to “X-Men.” Now I had read the occasional run here or there, Jason Aaron’s “Wolverine and the X-Men” holding a particularly special place in my heart, but there was always something about the X-books that intimidated me. The mutant world features an incredibly large number of […]

“Marvel Comics Presents” #102

By | Apr 3, 2020 | Reviews

Sometimes you find a random issue in a garage sale, slightly worn and only a dollar. Sometimes that issue starts you on a journey into a series you never would have found or tried otherwise. It’s a revelation, a wonder, a true hidden gem. This is not one of those comics.

“Witchblade” (1995) #1

By | Apr 3, 2020 | Reviews

If you’re a fan of our Summer TV Binge, you’ll recall that this year, my boyfriend and I took a look at the first season of TNT’s Witchblade.  We decided not too long ago to pick up with the second season, which then had me thinking to go back and look at the source comic – – […]

“American Vampire: Second Cycle” #5

By | Apr 2, 2020 | Reviews

As implied in The Red Book, “American Vampire” is not a typical story of vampires and the act of hunting them across the ages. With ‘The Miner’s Journal,’ the tale of monsters proves as much, using a book purported to have been once owned by Howard Phillips “H.P.” Lovecraft to delve deep into the author’s […]

“Batman: The Adventures Continue” Chapter 1

By | Apr 2, 2020 | Reviews

There are few bits of comics-related culture that are as widely beloved as Batman: The Animated Series. This isn’t the first comic sequel/companion to the series, but it is the first since the show really solidified its classic status, so it is a little tricky to attempt to continue those stories many years later.However, assembling […]

“Batman/Huntress: Cry for Blood”

By | Mar 30, 2020 | Reviews

Following Huntress’s big screen debut in Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), I was keen to revisit Greg Rucka and Rick Burchett’s 2000 miniseries “Batman/Huntress: Cry for Blood,” as I felt it could’ve been the basis for a great sequel if Ben Affleck hadn’t hung up the cape and cowl.

“Super Duck” #1

By | Mar 27, 2020 | Reviews

In a flock of cartoon ducks that already features Donald, Daffy, Howard, and Darkwing – not to mention Scrooge McDuck and his nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie – “Super Duck” #1 doesn’t do a whole lot to distinguish itself from the rest. (Warning: may contain minor spoilers.) Written by Frank Tieri and Ian Flynn Illustrated […]

“Fantastic Four: Marvels Snapshot” #1

By | Mar 27, 2020 | Reviews

Comics are filled with epic battles, heroes fighting world-threatening foes, and cosmic threats beyond the scope of imagination. With such an epic scope, it’s sometimes nice to look at the rest of the world – the people who live their day-to-day lives, and how they see these heroic characters. That’s where “Marvels Snapshot” comes in, […]

“Hidden Society” #2

By | Mar 27, 2020 | Reviews

Folks, I’m not going to lie. The world is pretty scary right now and while it will get better, it looks like we’ve got some time before that happens. Honestly, it’s kind of surreal seeing a literal comic book plot play out in real life but if there’s one thing I know, it’s that the […]

The string of strong Giant Size issues under the X-Men line continue, as Nightcrawler leads a team deep into the old X-Mansion. However, despite being a compelling read, it might be a misnomer.

It’s that time, people. Can’t you feel it? Growing closer and closer. Lurking right around the corner. Dread it, run from…it still arrives. Oh my goodness, there it is! It’s another big crossover event! Dun Dun Dun! I’m not even looking at a solicit right now but ten bucks says that it uses a word […]
