By | Jul 21, 2020 | Reviews

Originally supposed to be a bonus, three-day before OGN for the new “Fire Power” series, “Fire Power” Vol. 1 now stands as the true opener to the series a month out. Does it work? Come on, even if the story were bad, it’s more Chris Samnee art. Of course it works.

The impetus for one’s choosing of a particular book to read, much less purchase, is always uniquely interesting. Whether it is a comic book, graphic novel or traditional novel, all literature must draw you into its grasp and spark some sort of intrigue.

Just in time for Halloween, this September IDW is set to release “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” by Mike Mignola and Roy Thomas.

By | Aug 14, 2018 | Reviews

It feels like at least half of my graphic novel choices this year have been based on how wacky the title strikes me. Since I had such wonderful luck with “Get Naked” and “Kabul Disco”, how could I possibly pass up “Memoirs of A Very Stable Genius?” There was zero chance I’d let this slip […]

“Green Lantern: Earth One” Volume 1

By | Apr 24, 2018 | Reviews

If “Green Lantern: Earth One” Volume 1 looks like a sequential version of a cinematic space opera, it’s because the man behind the visuals has storyboarded over 30 feature films, including the box office hits Logan, Interstellar, and The Dark Knight Rises. Lucky for us, Gabriel Hardman and his wife, Corinna Bechko, know that space operas […]
