    Robin Rises #1

    When any DC Comics issue crawls past the $2.99 threshold, which was proudly touted as one of the signature promises of the “New 52,” I ask myself a simple question: just what is my extra...

    Doctor Who: The Tenth Doctor #2 – ‘Revolutions of Terror’

    Last month, Titan Books launched two new Doctor Who comic book series: one based on David Tennant’s 10th Doctor, and the other based on Matt Smith’s 11th incarnation. Overall, I enjoyed both of the debut...

    Moon Knight #1-6

    Moon Knight was pretty much a mystery to me until I read issue one of this new series back in March. Originally introduced to this character almost exclusively through cameos and Marvel Team-Ups, I was...

    The Multiversity #1 – ‘House of Heroes’

    Although the term ‘event comic’ usually denotes a publisher’s annual crossover series (you know, the one that will change everything!), the release of Multiversity actually feels like event. Writer Grant Morrison first teased the miniseries back in 2009,...

    The Weekly Pull List – August 20th, 2014

    CHANGING UP THE DATE FORMAT, YO. How impressed are you? It’s comics time. What’s on YOUR Pull List?...

The title of the story arc (and this article) are actually an apt description of what fans of Carol Danvers can expect from these issues of this relaunched title. In between the last volume and the current volume, writer Kelly Sue Deconnick did a little bit of retooling: she expanded the scope of the series to an interstellar...

In the Valley Below – The Belt

August 18, 2014 | 0 Comments

I first heard “Peaches”, the opening single off of In the Valley Below’s debut album, last winter.  I particularly loved the simple, but fuzzy, guitar line and the perfect harmonies in the chorus.  When we here at DTC were given the chance to review this, I jumped at it.  If “Peaches” was any indication for...

When Vertigo announced its defying new titles for its “relaunch” last year, the one that really caught my eye and stuck out was The Wake; an action-packed horror mermaid epic that spans millions of years. If that wasn’t enough to grab my attention, it has a superstar team in writer Scott Snyder (Batman, American Vampire)...

Battling Boy Vol. 1

August 13, 2014 | 0 Comments

It wouldn’t be uninformative to say that, in essence, Battling Boy is about Thor’s son who gets sent to a futuristic 1940′s movie to stand in for the Power Rangers while subtly promoting a children’s clothing line. Granted, that’s not what is written on the back cover, but even the most descriptive summary can’t truly...

The Goon – One For the Road One-Shot

August 8, 2014 | 0 Comments

We’ve all been there, Saturday night, out with the boys to hit on some women and toss back a few cold ones. Going out for drinks is a pretty standard sort of thing to do when you have a few extra green backs in your pocket and you want to live it up. Usually this...

Trees #1-3

August 7, 2014 | 0 Comments

I’ve never seen a series slow play a plot like this before. The series, written by Warren Ellis, illustrated by Jason Howard, and produced by Image got lots of hype preceding the release of the series in May of 2014. The basic premise of the series is that ten years ago a bunch of gigantic cylindrical things landed...
