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 […]

God Hates Astronauts #9 Review

God Hates Astronauts #9 does what the series has always been good at – provide random, quirky comedy around a central plot thats played fast and lose. There are a few problems that become apparant with each new issue, but the crux of the series is still very easy to enjoy.   First, the official […]

BEYOND BELIEF #1 Review

Beyond Belief #1 is an odd book. As a comic, it’s easy with a simple plot. Yet it’s charms lie in the novetly of its humor. It’s not in-depth reading, but its not lacking either. The official description from Image: Based on the hit Nerdist podcast! It’s time to send the little ones to dream […]

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 […]

Thief of Thieves #27 Review

Last month teased a new direction – of sorts – for the series, so how well does Thief of Thieves #27 hold up? Honestly? Not so well. The core concept is still there, but much of the title seems to have been lost at the same time. First, the official description from Image: There’s a […]

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 […]

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: […]

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 […]

God Hates Astronauts #6 Review

The problem with titles run by a single creator is that it’s often a very unique offering. Ryan Browne’s ownership of God Hates Astronauts #6 is a prime example. On one hard, it’s quite frankly brilliant and full of a very unique sense of humor. On the other hand, if you don’t like this, there […]

Revival #28 Review

Revival #28 is, for me, a strong return to form. It brings back many of the elements unique to this series, such as it’s strong themes and central characters. Yet, at the same time, I’ve been fooled before. The official descrpition from Image: Dana’s quest for revenge leads her to a massive conspiracy. Em deals […]

Thief of Thieves #26 Review

Without spoiling too much, Thief of Thieves #26 marks a significant change in both the story and the direction of the title. Personally, I think this is something that it’s very much in need of, but this it manage to pull it off with a smooth sense of style, or just an awkward shift to […]

The Superannuated Man #6 Review

Well, here it is, the final chapter in what can only be described as a bizarre, bonkers and brilliant title. That said, with a loose story and concept, how do you add a sense of finale to something like The Superannuated Man #6? The official description from Image: MINISERIES CONCLUSION Blackwater burns as the ocean […]

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 […]

SECRET IDENTITIES #1 Review

Secret Identities #1 suffers from a lot of problems first-issues have when dealing with a large scale. They want to tell the plot and introduce the concept, but they also need to build a living, breathing world at the same time. If you stick with the slow opening, however, Secret Identities #1 looks like it […]

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 […]

Deadly Class #11 Review

For everything it’s teased, Deadly Class #11 delivers on its promises. This issue is jam-packed with the action it’s been promising and teasing. Yet, at the same time, it doesn’t forget its roots either; this is still a story about teenage killers and all the relative drama that comes with. First of all, the official […]

Revival #27 Review

Revival #27 takes a step back from the wider storyline and hones in one some strong, character-driven developments. After New York and some larger developments, it’s good to remember who the main cast are and, well, why they’re important in the first place. The official description from Image: Em and May continue their search for […]
