“Amazing Spider-Man: The Daily Bugle” #1

By | Jan 31, 2020 | Reviews

When shaping the Marvel universe, Stan Lee created and co-created plenty of fascinating super-humans. Emphasis on ‘human’. He had a talent for making the most astonishing characters relatable. Take the Fantastic Four for example. Yes, they’re explorers on a cosmic scale but at the end of the day, they’re a family. Better yet, take Spider-Man […]

“The Fearsome Doctor Fang”

By | Jan 28, 2020 | Reviews

TKO Studios burst onto the scene late in 2018 with a new business model: 4 titles, six issues each, released in single, trade, and digital format all at once.
