“Batman: Gothic”

By | Jun 11, 2020 | Reviews

1989 was a monumental year for the caped crusader. In June, Tim Burton’s cinematic interpretation of the character hit multiplexes and became a runaway blockbuster.

Androids indistinguishable from humans may not yet exist, but they are a prevalent force in science fiction.

“Afterlife with Archie” #6-10

By | May 21, 2020 | Reviews

With “Afterlife with Archie”’s first arc giving audiences Archie comics like never before, and proving a hit critically and commercially, the desire for more of its horrific version of Riverdale was huge. Shortly after the second arc started, Aguirre-Sacasa launched “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” too, leaving “Afterlife with Archie”’s second arc to be published over […]
