“Moon Knight” #3

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

In recent years, Moon Knight has been a recurring character at Marvel Comics, with different iterations of the character being frequent but short-lived. The most recent run of the series, by Max Bemis and Jacen Burrows, ended last October and the title has yet to be relaunched. For the next 12 weeks, in this summer […]

“Killer Groove” #2

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

The dialogue throughout “Killer Groove” #2 is funny and naturalistic, revealing great insights into the main characters and their relationships. This is a noir that feels contemporary and cool, but for some readers it might feel a bit light plot and pulp-inspired action. (Warning: may contain minor spoilers.) Written by Ollie Masters Illustrated by Eoin […]

“At the End of Your Tether” #1

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

Teen noir is a niche genre that has yielded some captivating content like the soon-to-be-revived on Hulu Veronica Mars, Rian Johnson’s Brick, and most recently, CW’s Riverdale. Dynamite recently gave the genre a whirl with its “Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys” teamup mini-series that (as the marketing folks proclaimed) redefined noir for a new […]

“Spider-Man Annual” #1

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

Going in, I was pretty excited to see Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. I was so confident it would be good, I bought my aunt and brother tickets, just so they could see it with me on opening night. Still, it managed to go above and beyond and completely blow me away. In my humble opinion, […]

“Avengers” #20

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

“Avengers” #20 may be part of a multi-tiered and sprawling saga like ‘War of the Realms,’ but at its heart it is a character study on Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk. By choosing to lean on that direction, the creative team was able to deliver a strong stand-alone issue in the midst of all that event […]

“War of the Realms” #6

By | Jun 28, 2019 | Reviews

You didn’t come to a comic book website and click on a review of a major superhero crossover event because you aren’t a fan. Being a fan of the comic book medium and the superhero genre makes you familiar with certain modes of storytelling. Good versus evil. Triumph over impossible odds. The illusion of change. […]

“Transformers/Ghostbusters” #1

By | Jun 27, 2019 | Reviews

George Orwell was a few years early when predicting at what point the world would succumb to a nightmarish Big Brother state. Instead, 1984 brought with it the dawn of two iconic sci-fi franchises: Transformers and Ghostbusters. Thirty-five years later, a different kind of nightmare was born. Written by Erik Burnham Illustrated by Dan Schoening Colored by […]

“Marilyn Manor” #1

By | Jun 27, 2019 | Reviews

Travel back in time to the 80s with me. A time of excess, a time when video killed the radio star, a time when the country pretended to be good, all the while sowing the seeds for chaos and ruin. Travel to “Marilyn Manor,” an 80s piece for which the period is a setting, rather than a nostalgic honey pot, for which I am eternally grateful.

“Canto” #1

By | Jun 27, 2019 | Reviews

Traditional fantasy is surprisingly something of a niche in the modern comics market, yet it seems to be making something of a resurgence in the public eye with titles like “Conan the Barbarian” going big at Marvel. Which is why I’m drawn to “Canto” #1. With writer David M. Booher, who brings a Tim Burton-esque […]

Pick of the Week: “Action Comics” #1012

By | Jun 27, 2019 | Pick of the Week, Reviews

After the compressed nature of “Event Leviathan” #1, has author Brian Michael Bendis already lost his focus with the event? The disappointing debut chapter recapped information and barely pushed the series forward. The most recent installments of “Action Comics” did a great job showing Loise Lane and Clark Kent investigate Leviathan. Bendis steered the title […]

“Fushigi Yûgi: Genbu Kaiden” – Volume 2

By | Jun 25, 2019 | Reviews

Fushigi Yûgi: Genbo Kaiden Volume Two continues with Takiko’s journey to find the seven celestial warriors, each one with a different power. This straightforward quest format isn’t something I see in American comics often. I don’t know if it’s common in manga, but I do remember (and loved) it in Ninja Scroll. This volume’s goal […]
