We Want Comics: Supergiant Games

By | Mar 26, 2019 | Columns

Supergiant Comics. No one is telling stories in any medium quite like Supergiant Games. Their worlds dip their toe in familiar storytelling convention, but are unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. Their characters are often funny, even whimsical, but their stories are melancholy and complex. The Supergiant video games combine engaging gameplay with virtuosic design- especially […]

The evil mastermind has corrupted and cannibalized victims in novels, films, and television, but never in comic books. Part of the fun of Hannibal stories is how they play with perspective to tell thrilling tales of […]

By | Jan 29, 2019 | Columns

With the release of Glass, M. Night Shyamalan’s trilogy surrounding the crash of Eastrail 177, encompassing that film, 2000’s Unbreakable and 2017’s Split, is finally complete (for the foreseeable future) after nineteen years.

We Want Comics: Metal Gear Solid

By | Jan 15, 2019 | Columns

Metal Gear!? That’s right, We Want Comics is taking us to the psychedelic wonderland of Hideo Kojima’s greatest creation. While there was a Metal Gear comic series in 2008 (with some gorgeous art by Ashley Wood!) it barely scratched the surface of the insane universe of Metal Gear Solid, a spy epic that spans a […]
