Ant-Man and the Wasp

By | Jul 6, 2018 | Reviews

Are two insects better the one? Read this spoiler-free review to find out. I was not particularly expecting Ant-Man and the Wasp. The first film, from which this one inherits not only the cast (likable, but underutilized) but journeyman comedy director Peyton Reed as well, showed a lot potential but suffered from a particularly saggy […]

“Cosmic Ghost Rider” #1

By | Jul 6, 2018 | Reviews

Frank Castle, under the pen of Donny Cates, has become the Cosmic Ghost Rider in the pages of “Thanos.” The character soon became a sensation with his maniacal personality and over-the-top powers. But can this supporting character sustain his own mini-series? Signs point to yes. Written by Donny Cates Illustrated by Dylan Burnett Colored by […]

“The Highest House” #5

By | Jul 5, 2018 | Reviews

Mike Carey and Peter Gross’ grand fantasy miniseries continues towards its dramatic conclusion with issue five. A lot of the comic up until this point still felt like table setting, with a relatively slow pace for a six-issue mini. Will “The Highest House” finally start hurtling towards its end with the penultimate issue? Written by […]

“Assassinistas” #6

By | Jul 5, 2018 | Reviews

The craziest college internship in the history of college internships comes to an end for Dominic, but he’s not the only one who’s learned something along the way. One of our Multiversity fan favorites wraps up with a dose of sentimentality, but not the sticky-sweet kind you’re used to in an Afterschool Special. Please note […]

“Batman” readers have eagerly anticipated this comic book event for over a year, and once again, Tom King (with the help of an all-star roster of artists) mines Batman and Catwoman’s shared history to craft a narrative that celebrates what brought the two Gotham City icons together and what has kept them apart. Written by […]

Pick of the Week: “Catwoman” #1

By | Jul 5, 2018 | Pick of the Week, Reviews

Catwoman is an old lady. Not the character in the comic, I mean in real life. Selina Kyle first appeared in the first issue of “Batman” in 1940. She’s endured for decades, in multiple series across media. That’s because there’s an ineffable quality, a versatility, that allows her to exist in trippy fantasy and grounded […]

“Charley’s War”

By | Jul 3, 2018 | Reviews

How do you take as subject as grim as the trenches of World war I and translate it into the format of the weekly four-page adventure story without boring your readers to tears or making a mockery of the whole affair? You don’t, obviously. Unless you are Pat Mills and Joe Colquhoun, in which case […]

“Multiple Man” #1

Multiple Man has thrived in acclaimed team books for a few decades now. Breaking out in the original 80’s “X-Factor” series, before leading the team in the mid-2000’s, Jamie Madrox has been charming, dangerous, and everlasting. Now, in the hands of indie-breakout writer Matt Rosenberg, artist Andy MacDonald, colorist Tamra Bonvillain and letterer Travis Lanham, […]

“Sex Criminals” #25

By | Jun 28, 2018 | Reviews

“Sex Criminals” is funny. “Sex Criminals” is sad. But one thing “Sex Criminals” rarely is, is romantic. That’s never really been in its playbook. This is a story less interested in looking at the wonderful power of love than it is in the hard work. Relationships are defined by patience and hard won communication. That’s […]
