    One-Punch Man Vol. 4 – Another knockout success

    I don’t like manga. When friends told me I should check out One-Punch Man, I didn’t because – and I can’t overstate this – I don’t like manga. This isn’t to say I haven’t tried...

    Faith #1 – Faith Begins – And Hope in the Comic Book Industry Is Renewed

    Comic book publisher Valiant had exactly one new release this week, and for me, it’s one of the most important releases of the year: Faith. Why do I feel so strongly about this release? Because women...

    Secret Wars #9 – The Finale

    Secret Wars ended very recently with the kind of bang I was hoping for. No Hulks and Deadpools bashing and smashing and shooting. Sure, there was a great punch up, but Secret Wars #9 ended, much...

    Polar Volume 1 – Came from the Cold

    Location, location, location. The maxim holds a surprising amount of truth; for property as much as for fiction. And for good reason. So much of creative literature depends so veritably on setting that it might...

    Dark Corridor #1-6 – Season One

    Usually I don’t just buy comics on a whim, but there was something about the cover of the first issue of Dark Corridor that grabbed my attention: a lone figure on a motorcycle riding away from...

Rat Queens #3

December 13, 2013 | 0 Comments

After two issues full of action, this issue slows the pace tremendously and we begin to learn more about the characters. In fact, I would say that we learn something of significance about every character except Dee Dee. Kurtis J. Wiebe (W) begins to build out these characters so they are more to us than...

Being a superhero comic artist/writer is a lot like being president. You’re always compared to the person who did it before you, the good ones last about eight years, and after your time is up life goes on without you. Effectively both presidents and comic book creators are just cogs (albeit important ones) in a...

So let’s talk about the story. Jonathan Luna (W&A) and Sarah Vaughn (W) imagine a world where artificial intelligence is a much bigger part of daily life than in our current world. So big, in fact, that people can opt to have a chip installed in their brain that seems to operate similar to bluetooth....

Invincible Universe #8

December 11, 2013 | 0 Comments

Another issue of Phil Hester’s Invincible Universe and I’m even more in love with the series than I was after finishing the previous issue. Not to mention, Todd Nauck’s and Gabe Eltaeb’s art is just as spot on as ever. I first decided to start picking up Invincible Universe because the Invincible comics (that is to...

I’m a bit at a loss for words for this second issue of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios’ Pretty Deadly. Let me begin by saying I am still impressed with this title. With that said, perhaps I should explain the less than 100 score I gave this months issue. First, take the “mature” rating of...

Hinterkind #3

This was a series that I was initially wary about, what with indie titles being as hit and miss as titles from the big two, if not more so. But, the genre and the artwork had my attention from my first look, and my worries were for naught when the story of the hinterkind was...
