“Barbarian Lord”

By | Sep 23, 2019 | Reviews

Matt Smith’s “Barbarian Lord” began as a series of one-page gag comics, then some short stories, before it took root as the 180-page book which was published by Clarion Books in 2014. The result is a character and world that feels larger than life, worthy of epic songs, and yet he never shook off the […]

“Nailbiter Volume 5: Bound by Blood”

By | Sep 13, 2019 | Reviews

Despite encompassing the penultimate trade paperback, the fifth arc of “Nailbiter,” ‘Bound by Blood,’ tells a very effective story that is enough of a standalone tale to be good for newcomers if taken alone. Written by Joshua Williamson Illustrated by Mike Henderson Colored by Adam Guzowski Lettered by John J. Hill Buckaroo, Oregon, has given […]

“Superman & Batman: Generations”

By | Aug 30, 2019 | Reviews

In 1999, DC Comics published the first four issues of an Elseworlds story that spawned two more limited series and a total of 20 individual issues. “Superman & Batman: Generations” eschews comic-book time and tells the story of two of DC’s most popular heroes and the dynasties that they create. This review contains mild spoilers. […]

“The Surrogates”

By | Jul 30, 2019 | Reviews

“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 […]

Dead Drop #1 Cropped Reviews
“Dead Drop”

By | Jul 24, 2019 | Reviews

One of the most overlooked books of the modern Valiant era is “Dead Drop”, it came out at a high point for the company; this (mainly) action-driven mini-series came out at the same time than “Book of Death”, which got all the reflectors. I remember some critics even regarding the first issue as inconsequential, something […]

“Planetes Omnibus: Volume 1”

By | Jul 2, 2019 | Reviews

In space, no can hear those annoying sounds a dump truck produces when it backs up. Makoto Yukimura’s garbage-bound science fiction tale is as fun as it is brilliant, cleverly balancing character work, world building, and political intrigue. Written and illustrated by Makoto Yukimura, lettered by Susan Daigle-Leach, translated by Yuki Johnson It’s the 2070s, […]

Luke Skywalker is dead! He has been for eighty years. So is pretty much everyone you’ve ever known and cared about in the Star Wars galaxy. What’s Star Wars after Star Wars?

“Strangers in Paradise” Vol. 1

By | Jun 18, 2019 | Reviews

“Strangers in Paradise” is one of those few Black and White indie comics to have survived the boom and bust of the nineties, bringing with it a complex story and gorgeous artwork. It recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and is getting a shiny new re-release of the hardcover omnibi. What better way to celebrate than by looking back at the volume that started it all and seeing just how much one series can change over the course of two decades and a little more than a 100 issues.

I will never understand “The Boys,” but I do understand why now is its moment. Written by Garth Ennis Illustrated by Darick Robertson and Tony Aviña Lettered by Greg Thompson This is going to hurt! In a world where costumed heroes soar through the sky and masked vigilantes prowl the night, someone’s got to make […]

I am terrible at reviews for many many many reasons. Ask our editors. My spelling is the worst. Grammar is almost a foreign concept to me. My anxiety riddled brain pumps out sentences which make perfect sense to me but any semi-sane person can not comprehend. I have also always struggled with the idea that […]

“Hitman” #43

By | May 15, 2019 | Reviews

One of the most satisfying parts of reading a long creator-driven comic run is seeing certain themes grow and develop. My personal favorite tool for this is the one-off issue: a breather, a respite between larger arcs, designed to settle subplots and expand on the book’s major themes. In my recent read-through of Garth Ennis […]
