About 

Growing up, Nick White dreamed of a career with the Chicago Bulls. This is because he was young and stupid, and his parents were of the "you can do ANYTHING" mentality. When he was older, and probably not a whole lot smarter, Nick purchased Alan Moore's From Hell on a whim (that in itself probably says a lot). He was astounded to find that comics were as bizarre and twisted as his beloved Twin Peaks. After that he bought Batman: The Black Mirror strictly on the cover's aesthetics (Who the hell is Scott Snyder?" he said) and hasn't looked back since. Except, of course, in situations that necessitate such. When he's not "busy" playing Castlevania or harassing Zander about what he ought to be reading, Nick continues to work on his makeshift shrine to Jeff Lemire.

We’ve all encountered that guy before. Heck, some of us have been that guy. The one who rushes into the comic book shop, the bags under his eyes serving as a foolproof barometer to his...

Constantine: The Hellblazer #1

July 6, 2015 | 0 Comments

In the last decade, trench coat aficionado John Constantine and his ironclad lungs have found their way onto the big screen (2005’s Constantine), the slightly smaller screen (2014’s “Constantine” on NBC), and helmed a pair...

Bloodshot Reborn #1

May 22, 2015 | 0 Comments

March 5, 2015 | 0 Comments

Ivar Anni-Padda doesn’t traverse the space-time continuum in a 1960s police box, own a sonic screwdriver, or possess a pair of hearts, but the similarities to a television program featuring a pronoun with a PhD...

Chances are, we’ve all heard our fair share of apocryphal tales regarding American history. Arguably, the most famous of these stories is that of a young George Washington not only possessing the prepubescent balls to...
