And though the cyberpunk sub-genre originated in the ’80s, much of what it has to say about corporations, politicians, and revolutionaries still bears a lot of weight today. This is none more obvious than in Wren McDonald’s first full-length comic novel, “SP4RX”, […]

Richard Corben’s “Shadows on the Grave” #1 blends ’50s horror movies, Tales of the Crypt, EC Comics, and old school science fiction cartooning into one odd collection of short stories.

By | Dec 8, 2016 | Reviews
