Marvel is so close to the end of the X-Men’s multi-year Krakoan era of comic book titles.

“Spectregraph” #1

By | Apr 30, 2024 | Reviews

Tynion, Ward, and Bidikar on an old dark house comic? I cannot think of a better team to scare the living pants off of me. Things would have to go horribly awry for this to be anything but magical. That’s not foreshadowing. Just a statement of fact.

City Hunter

By | Apr 30, 2024 | Movies, Reviews

I’m not especially familiar with “City Hunter,” Tsukasa Hojo’s iconic 1985-1991 manga, that’s been finally turned into a live-action film in its homeland thanks to Netflix and director Yûichi Satô: my main experience with the series was the 1993 movie from Hong Kong, starring Jackie Chan, a cheerfully dated time capsule of HK cinema most […]

“The Dead and the Damned” #1

By | Apr 25, 2024 | Reviews

What does it mean to live forever? Is it a blessing, a curse, or something less binary? These are the questions many fantasies - particularly of the apocalyptic zombie kind - presents us with, whether knowingly or not. “The Dead and the Damned” tackles it head on, starting from the curse and then asking my favorite question: Why? Come. Let us join a world most fierce, forged in steel and magic, in a place ravaged by the scourge of the undead.

“Hobtown Mystery Stories: The Case of the Missing Men”

By | Apr 23, 2024 | Reviews

I almost hesitate to write a review of Hobtown Mystery Stories: The Case of the Missing Men, as it’s difficult to convey how immersive and intense it becomes for the reader. It’s a teen investigative story with supernatural elements but it’s far more off-kilter than Buffy the Vampire Slayer or, going back to an even earlier influence, Nancy Drew. (The last obviously inspired the cover.)

“Nightwing” #113

By | Apr 19, 2024 | Reviews

“Nightwing” reaching 300 issues – yes, this is #113 of the current run, but this is the 300th issue of a Nightwing ongoing – is significant. For a company with a plethora of iconic characters, a character whose first titular comic didn’t come out until 1995 reaching this milestone is unexpected. The only other characters […]

“My Little Pony: Set Your Sail” #1

By | Apr 12, 2024 | Reviews

The cultural significance of My Little Pony is hard to quantify, let alone explain. Of all the children shows with large portions of adult fandoms, the “bronies” were some of the most…fanatical. Not being a “brony” myself, I approached “My Little Pony: Set Your Sail” #1 with a curiosity as to why this premise of […]
