    Superman #41 – Before Truth

October 8, 2013 | 0 Comments

The premise at the core of Kodoja’s story is… simple? Confusing? It’s hard to say, really. The twisting braided plotlines of Kodoja: Terror Mountain Showdown make it hard to follow at times, and the… unique art style adds another level of complexity on top of that....

October 7, 2013 | 0 Comments

Raccoon Fighter is a blues-rock band out of Brooklyn, NY.  On October 1st they released their debut ZIL.  I’ll cut to the chase on this.  It’s a hard hitting, fuzzy guitar bombshell of an album that packs a lot into just under 25 minutes.  Full of bravado and swagger, this is the kind of album...
