“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. After the previous year’s now-classic (if too sadistic for this reviewer) “The Killing Joke” was almost immediately hailed as the definitive origin of Batman’s arch-nemesis The Joker, another writer from […]

“Only A Poor Old Man”

By | May 28, 2020 | Reviews

“Only A Poor Old Man” largely defined the most famous character invented by one of America’s most important comic book creators. That is a heavy claim to make, but anything else would be an understatement. The first comic with Scrooge McDuck as the main character is maybe not Carl Barks’ absolute best work, but one […]

“Geisha”

By | May 22, 2020 | Reviews

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 […]

“Aliens: Labyrinth”

By | May 11, 2020 | Reviews

Alien and Aliens are incredible films, but the true source of fans’ fascination with the franchise arguably remains H.R. Giger’s repulsive yet beautiful beast itself. Seemingly the deadly darkness of space come to life, it’s an amoral monster that you can only dream of studying safely, and it’s this dangerous fantasy that fueled Jim Woodring […]

“Afterlife with Archie” #1-5

By | May 7, 2020 | Reviews

Despite there being a plethora of Archie comics out there, I’ve never read any of them. Sure, that relaunch with Fiona Staples artwork was tempting, with a handful of other intriguing miniseries following that, but I’m yet to sit down and read any. I’ve read “Criminal: The Last of the Innocent,” which has its Archie […]
