Over the next few weeks I’ll be journaling my way through the first 100 chapters, making up the East Blue Saga. This week we’re at our halfway […]

“Surrogates,” a detective story disguised as science fiction, is crammed with subtexts that will keep you thinking about the way society interacts with technology long after you’ve reached the last page. Thirteen years after it debuted, it still holds up to a careful examination. Written by Robert Venditti Illustrated by Brett Weldele The year is […]

“Countdown” #45-39

By | Jul 29, 2019 | Reviews

Well, it didn’t take too long for “Countdown” to get bad. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m trying to avoid an issue-by-issue breakdown of the series, because I don’t want “He wrote a million words about Countdown” on my tombstone, but issue #44 of “Countdown” deserves a special mention. It certainly isn’t the first bad issue […]

“New Warriors”: Teenage Rebellion

By | Jul 28, 2019 | Reviews

Fabian Nicieza has been memorialized as one of the better X-Architects of the troublesome 1990s period of Marvel’s X-Men. His eye for snappy dialogue and high stakes soap opera led to some super fun comics, and he’s continued to work in the industry to this day to reasonable acclaim. Before all that, however, he kicked […]

“Action Comics” #1013

By | Jul 26, 2019 | Reviews

While there are some truly interesting ideas on this issue and its connections to both ‘Event: Leviathan’ and ‘Year of the Villain,’ the atmospheric art and sharp dialogue can’t shake the feeling that not much is actually going on. Written by Brian Michael Bendis Illustrated by Szymon Kudranski Colored by Brad Anderson Lettered by Dave […]

“At the End of Your Tether” #2

By | Jul 26, 2019 | Reviews

“At the End of Your Tether” #2 doesn’t necessarily answer most the questions posed in the debut issue, but that’s what makes it work. The real story exists at the margins and in the gaps between multiple realities laden with intriguing possibilities and the longing for what might have been. (Warning: may contain minor spoilers.)

“Psi-Lords” #2

By | Jul 26, 2019 | Reviews

While reading “Psi-Lords” #2, I found myself drawing parallels to other characters and comics, such as DC’s Lantern books and Wolverine. It’s difficult to read “Psi-Lords” #2 and not see similarities to DC Comics’ Lantern Corps; even down to the choice of color hues. And of course, waking up one day with powers and no […]

“Batman: Curse of the White Knight” #1

By | Jul 26, 2019 | Reviews

With “Batman: White Knight,” Sean Murphy captured a Batman aesthetic that felt both futuristic and vintage, timeless even. The book’s muted sepia and cool gray color palette provided by Matt Hollingsworth coupled with Murphy’s trademark hatching and a script that borrowed liberally from Batman’s comic, film, and animated television history combined to create a freestanding […]
