The Surface #2 Review

The Surface #2, like its first issue, isn’t all that easy to define. The first could, at best, be described as an artistic mind-f**k that was, quite frankly, compelling. And now? Well it’s still very much the same, perhaps even more so. The official description from Image: There’s a traitor on the team, and a […]

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 […]

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 […]

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! […]

Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars #2 Review

As the second issue, Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars #2 has a lot of work to do. While the first issue was enjoyable, the second issue has to build on this and demonstarte an ongoing tone for the series. So, with that in mind, how does this issue hold up? The official description from Image: […]

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 […]

THE SURFACE #1 Review

Few titles manage to grab and captivate as much as The Surface #1. While it is very slow to get going, there are titles out there that instantly define and capture their immediate audience. That said, it’s questionable just how wide a title such as The Surface will reach, if this first opening issue is […]

SPARKS NEVADA: MARSHAL ON MARS #1 Review

Some titles instantly tell you what the titles about, but some can be a little misleading. I’m still not sure what to make of Sparks Nevada: Marshal on Mars #1 as… well, there seems to be a few things going on here… The official description from Image: BASED ON THE HIT NERDIST PODCAST! Shine your […]

Savage Dragon #202 Review

For a series that’s had some serious ups and downs lately, Savage Dragon #202 # is a dissapointing drop back to the standards of excitement seen in the 200th special. I see what it’s trying to do at points, but there are also a few major thinks that simply don’t fit right. In fact, it […]

Savage Dragon #201 Review

Following a questionable 200th issue, Savage Dragon #201 seems to split itself into two different directions. On one hand, we still have the action and excitement the fast-paced series is known for yet, on the other, we still have a large amount of unnessary teenage drama and fantasty. The official description from Image: Following the […]
