“Hawkman” #5

By | Oct 11, 2018 | Reviews

Some series and characters require a certain passion from their respective creative teams. That is sometimes caused by characters that have been overused, or who have been away from the spotlight for too long, or even those, like Hawkman, that are perceived by readers as “too complex” or whose backstories are too “impenetrable.” This is […]

“Moth & Whisper” #2

By | Oct 11, 2018 | Reviews

After a first issue that was pretty mythic and did a fair amount of table setting, the second issue of “Moth & Whisper” does a good job of focusing on who Niki is as they search for information on Mr. Wolfe. While there are some storytelling choices that don’t quite land, the fusion of plot […]

“Last Pick” Volume 1

By | Oct 9, 2018 | Reviews

When alien visitors are depicted in popular culture they typically fall into one of two categories. They are either benevolent explorers or merciless invaders. In the case of the latter, the cruelty is usually an extension of an emotionless pragmatism. In other words, our planet is simply being pillaged for resources for the benefit of […]

“Amazing Spider-Man” #617 & #625

By | Oct 9, 2018 | Reviews

With the web-slinger making bigger waves on our screens, both larger and small, than he has ever done since 2002, I thought it was about high time I jumped back into where I left off when I last read “Amazing Spider-Man.” Little did I know I’d find one of the most powerful, heart wrenching Spider-Man […]

“Sparrowhawk” #1

By | Oct 5, 2018 | Reviews

Wish fulfillment is a heck of a thing. One minute you’re looking into the mirror and dreaming of a better life. The next, you’re making Faustian bargains with a wolpertinger (think “fanged Jackalope”) on the other side of the mirror. This is the world Delilah S. Dawson brings to us in her return to comics.

“Tony Stark: Iron Man” #4

By | Oct 5, 2018 | Reviews

Most of the time, a superhero is only as good as their villain. But the superhero genre is wide-encompassing, and a good ongoing series can get into all sorts of genre territory. Case in point- “Tony Stark: Iron Man” #4. Sure, there’s a “bad guy” in this story, but the issue mostly concerns itself with […]

Venom

By | Oct 5, 2018 | Reviews

It’s a mostly spoiler-free review for a movie whose best qualities you could not spoil and whose worse you would rather forget. Right out of the gate: Venom is a bad movie. It is, also, a pretty fun viewing experience, assuming one arrives in the right mood. Like its protagonist the movie suffers from a […]

“X-Men Black: Magneto” #1

By | Oct 5, 2018 | Reviews

There is an inherent rhythm and pace around issues focused on character studies. They are less about plot, action or overall development, but rather on what makes its lead tick, their core values and challenges. So when Magneto gets such an issue through “X-Men Black: Magneto,” certain styles are to be expected. Compounded to that, […]

“Batman/The Maxx: Arkham Dreams” #1

By | Oct 4, 2018 | Reviews

Sam Kieth’s “The Maxx” was one of the more layered and interesting series to come out of 90s Image Comics. It was a great look at mental illness, psychological and existential issues, whilst maintaining a playful tone with Kieth’s art. Now, Kieth comes back for a crossover story with the reasonably straightly-played Batman. Question is, […]
