The Sandman Universe is a fascinating, expansive world. This week marks an important new debut for the line with “Lucifer” #1.  With so much attention to the property that requires a really unique, niche tone, it is going to be difficult to get the series right.

By | Oct 16, 2018 | Reviews

For all our advancements in society, talk of women’s bodies and women’s sexuality is still a highly politicized, highly taboo topic of discussion – – especially in the United States.  Swedish feminist cartoonist Liv Strömquist uses humor and history to pull back the curtain on these topics in a way that will make you laugh, make […]

“Secret Warriors” #24

By | Oct 16, 2018 | Reviews

Jonathan Hickman, maybe more than any other current writer, has picked up a reputation for intricate, densely plotted, structurally complex stories. A recent read-through of his first long-form work, “Secret Warriors,” showed me all of that, but one issue in particular stuck out for being the shining example of why his approach to storytelling works. […]

In the past issue featuring artist David Marquez, “Avengers” was able to achieve a staggering level of quality the series has never evoked before.

“Weatherman” #5

By | Oct 12, 2018 | Reviews

Darkly comedic dialogue, consistently well rendered character designs and Dave Stuart’s wonderful colors all tend to feel a bit squandered in a book that’s losing focus as it comes to the end of the first major story arc.

“Exiles” #9

By | Oct 12, 2018 | Reviews

I won’t bury the lede: “Exiles” is exactly the comic it should be. It’s immensely appealing to all sorts of readers. It features deep cuts that will thrill and delight comic book nerds everywhere, but it’s also an entirely self-contained story. It wastes no time concerning itself with the larger Marvel universe, and yet it […]

“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 […]

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 […]
