“World’s Finest”

By | Feb 5, 2019 | Reviews

Published as three 48-page prestige-format issues in 1990, “World’s Finest,” wears its love for the Golden Age of superheroes on its sleeve thanks to a collaboration that unabashedly celebrated the off-the-wall splendor of costumed superheroes while softening the prickly relationship between fellow orphans Batman and Superman only a few years after Frank Miller’s precedent-setting “Dark […]

“Orion”

By | Jan 15, 2019 | Reviews

Walt Simonson is probably best known for his work on “Thor.” He is a dynamic artist and writer, and his “Thor” run is not only for that character, but in super hero comics in general. This review, though, is not about that run on “Thor.” Instead, we’re looking at a different pantheon, a different publisher, […]

“The Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titans”

By | Jan 1, 2019 | Reviews

This is a perfect superhero comic. I’ll grant you the distinct probability other single-issue superhero comics, either before this one’s release in August 1982 or afterwards, are as good. But nothing beats “Marvel and DC Present The Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titans” as a perfect optic blast (or starbolt) of story, character, creators, […]

“Royal City”

By | Dec 19, 2018 | Reviews

In this week’s evergreen review, we’re taking a look at the vastly underrated and overlooked Jeff Lemire written and drawn series “Royal City.” This a comic that’s pure Lemire and deserves a second glance for its raw emotion and gripping character drama.

“Adventure Comics” #4 & #5

By | Dec 4, 2018 | Reviews

It’s hard to believe that we’re coming up on the 10th anniversary of “Blackest Night.” In retrospect, that event arguably marks the zenith of the “Geoff Johns era” of DC Comics. So, it’s especially appropriate that Johns used that event to cap of what I consider the definitive ending to the character I most associate […]

“Secret Warriors” #24

By | Oct 16, 2018 | Reviews

Jonathan Hickman, maybe more than any other current writer, has picked up a reputation for intricate, densely plotted, structurally complex stories. A recent read-through of his first long-form work, “Secret Warriors,” showed me all of that, but one issue in particular stuck out for being the shining example of why his approach to storytelling works. […]
