There is something about books that are written, drawn and coloured by the same artist. Not only are they few and far between, but they also share that sense of unity and cohesion that only the best multi-artist partnerships can show otherwise. What Derek Laufman delivered on the first full issue of “Ruinworld” is a […]

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 […]

“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.

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 […]
