TRANSFORMERS: Windblade #5 Review

While Robots In Disguise has gone through various changes, including plot and name, issues like Transformers: Windblade #5 make me wonder why things aren’t the other way around. Why can’t Windblade be a more permanent character? The official description from IDW: RACE AGAINST THE LIGHT! On VELOCITRON, racing isn’t a sport—it’s a matter of life […]

Revival #30 Review

30 issues in and Revival #30 looks to be going strong. That said, there are a few changes in tone and general presentation here that may be a cause of concern. Not least of all because the title seems to be prolonging itself a little too much… The official description from Image: After the devastating […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #214 Review

This is a tough one. G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #214 is the hardest issue to review. It’s definately for the fans, or anyone following the recent storylines at least, but new readers are going to find this the most bizarre issue they’ve read. On one hand, it’s good fan service but, on the […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 Review

Well, it’s been a fun little mini series and G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #5 marks the end of it all. So, was this series good over all? Is the ending effective and does it actually promise anything for G.I Joe’s future? Especially with the current end of the main title’s current ‘season’. […]

G.I Joe #8 Review

8 issues in and the new ‘series 4’ is already over. G.I Joe #8 marks the last of the current storyline and title so, while it is abrupt, how does the end result look? First, the official description from IDW: The war of intel and secrets reaches dangerous new heights as Scarlet’s G.I. Joe team […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 Review

Despite the stupidity and sillyness of G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #213 and its current plot, it’s hard not to feel impressed in some way. As far as all out action, suspense and drama goes, this issue definately pays off and – for that – it’s hard not to like it. The official description […]

Drones #1 Review

With a title such as Drone #1‘s, it can be very easy to think of it as a purely military, patriotic spy-fest. However, Drone #1 adds just enough surprises into the mix to give it a whole different angle. The official description from IDW: Two former predator drone operators face insurgency and insanity on the […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 Review

Well, it’s only a 5-part series, so G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #4 is the penultimate issue, rife with plot set-ups and final confrontations. Still, based on its charm and atsmophere, it might just be the best issue so far. The official description from IDW: SNAKE EYES’ mission for COBRA has been severely […]

Dead Squad #5 Review

Dead Squad #5 is the end of the opening ‘origins’ arc, although it instantly teases the next comic so it’s certainly confident in itself, but is that justified? And more importantly, is it earned from the readers? The official description from IDW: It’s a battle on the high seas as Blake, Hooper, and Vargas confront […]

Elephantmen #63 Review

A quick one-shot of sorts, Elephantmen #63 teases plenty about the future, while offering a quick, easily-wrapped up story in its own right. The official description from Image: Miki and Farrell meet perhaps the strangest Elephantman of all. The main story itself isn’t the most interesting here; indeed, it’s more about exploring some of the […]

THE LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE #1 Reveiw

Legacy of Luther Strode #1 offers the final chapter for the titular character. That’s a lot of potential to promise, but with a 40 page opening issue, it’s certainly off to a good start. The official description from Image: Luther Strode returns. For five years, Luther Strode and Petra have been on the run. Now […]

Rai #8 Review

RAI #8 ends it’s second arc on the downest of all notes but is no-less a great issue of this undervalued title. The official description from Valiant: The Battle for New Japan’ erupts into all-out war! Rai has raised an army of former enemies and reluctant allies all in the name of one thing – […]

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes Agent of Cobra #3 Review

G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #3 marks the middle point in the mini series and, well, so far it’s good. That said, this issue raises a lot of issues about the G.I Joe storyline itself. If there’s this kind of potential there, why was it simply dropped to begin with? The official description […]

Skullkickers #31 Review

If there’s one thing obvious with Skullkickers #31, it’s that its been away for too long. The series has never had the most reliable releases and it whimsically changed its names more than once but still, it says a lot that its so easy to get back into the swing of things.  The official description […]

Angry Birds/Transformers #4 Review

Well, here it is, the final to what can likely be called one of the oddest mashups currently available in comics. Angry Birds / Transformers #4 marks the end of a unique series, one that that has definately been fun, so does the final issue manage to go out with a bang? First, the official […]

Secret Identities #2 Review

For a series that’s only just launched, Secret Identities #2 still likes to keep things big. If you’re looking for a title that’s in-depth with plenty of world building, this offers all that with a nice twist at its core. Still, this large scope also comes with a few drawbacks along the way… The official […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #211 Review

You know, for a series that’s had its share of ninjas, gadgets and robot super soliders, its hard to imagine something like G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #211 being any more silly/bold (delete as appropriate) with its sense of scale. Well, that might be changing… The official description from IDW: THE RETURN OF SERPENTOR! […]

Ragnarok #4 Review

Ragnarok #4 marks the fourth installment in a series that has only recently received my attention. That said, there’s a few hidden charms in this title that might not seem obvious from outside, with Ragnarok #4 being a prime example of just what it has to offer. The official description from IDW: Beyond the Forest […]

Aric of Dacia just can’t seem to get a break. X-O Manowar #34 could be his toughest battle yet and that’s saying a lot! The official description from Valiant: He survived ENTER: NINJAK.
