“Thor” #1

By | Jun 15, 2018 | Reviews

The Odinson has returned! After Jason Aaron’s amazing arc with Jane Foster as Thor, it’s time to return to the status quo. But the War of the Realms is still ongoing, Mjolnir is no more, and Loki is more morally ambiguous than ever. So how does the story continue? Let’s take a look and see. […]

By | Jun 15, 2018 | Reviews

With a raised profile and more attention than ever, DC is incredibly wise to launch a new Plastic Man series!

“Proxima Centauri” #1

By | Jun 15, 2018 | Reviews

Farel Dalrymple has been an artist lurking on the fringe of comics for a while now. He was introduced to the mainstream with an absurdist reinvention of Marvel’s “Omega The Unknown” and has since worked on his own titles and projects like “The Wrenchies” with his signature hyper-detailed penciling. Now, he’s releasing a mini-series that […]

Incredibles 2

By | Jun 15, 2018 | Reviews

When The Incredibles come out in 2004, superheroes in movies were still more of a novelty than the norm. While Bryan Singer and Sam Raimi had released two installments of X-Men and Spider-Man, respectively, Batman hadn’t yet begun and Nick Fury still searched for heroes to assemble. There was something fresh, something cool, something classic about The Incredibles. It […]

Exclusive Preview: “Giant Days” #40

By | Jun 15, 2018 | Previews

Next month, one of our favorite series of the past few years, “Giant Days,” release its fortieth issue. For a book like “Giant Days,” this is a huge milestone. An all-ages book at an independent publisher isn’t always the surest bet, but John Allison and Max Sarin have made sure that “Giant Days” is a […]

Back in March, Aftershock announced “Clankillers” from Sean Lews (“Coyotes,” “Betrothed”) and Antonio Fuso (“James Bond: The Body,” “G.I. Joe: Cobra”). The series, set in ancient Ireland, fits nicely into what AfterShock has been doing as of late. Final order cutoff for the first issue, which hits stands on July 18th, is Monday, so AfterShock […]

Beyond Wakanda: Marvel’s Other International Heroes

By | May 22, 2018 | Longform

Earlier this month, it was widely reported Marvel and Chinese company NetEase’s webcomics, “Warriors of Three Sovereigns” and “Cyclone,” would star the Marvel Universe’s first Chinese superheroes. While they certainly feature Marvel’s first manhua heroes, that isn’t true from an in-universe perspective: Marvel Comics have introduced plenty of Chinese and other international do-gooders over the […]

What Can You Build From Batman?

By | May 15, 2018 | Longform

As we say farewell to James Tynion IV and co.’s “Detective Comics,” the last issue of which releases next week, I’m left wondering: “Where does the idea of Batman go from here?” I’m not wondering about Batman himself. Bruce will do what Bruce does. He’ll patrol Gotham, fight crime, and do other Batman things. (Also, I […]

Marvel TV: Who Survives Infinity War?

By | May 8, 2018 | Longform

Before anything else, let me preface this with a very large SPOILER warning. If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War yet, this will be discussing the final minutes. (Of course, the Internet already spoiled that with memes about three days after the movie came out, so that might be a moot point.) At the end […]

Robots From Tomorrow Episode 103: Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s Street Angel

By | Jul 24, 2014 | Podcasts

The publisher of this week’s book, Adhouse, suggests that book, Street Angel, be filed under these categories: comedy, poverty, hero, and kung fu. Those terms both entirely describe and woefully undersell the breadth of pure comic booking contained in this 10th anniversary hardcover reprinting of Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s breakout hit. The title character […]
