STAR WARS ANNUAL #1 Review

The following review contains mild spoilers for Star Wars Annual #1. Most comic book annuals strive to deliver big stories, often crossing over several characters from other franchises. You might see Spider-Man and Dr. Strange on the pages of Astonishing X-Men, and it isn’t surprising to see the Green Lantern make an appearance in a […]

DC Comics co-publishers, Dan DiDio and Jim Lee, announced today via e-mail a new creator plan that overhauls many of the outdated practices and policies used by the company.

America’s Got Powers #5 Review

America’s Got Powers generally releases every other month. I’m not sure why, although I assume Bryan Hitch‘s beautiful art takes a bit more time to complete that that of most comic books. If that is the reason, I don’t mind in the least, because it’s well worth the wait. (If you don’t believe me, just check out the […]

Creator Owned Heroes #8 Review

With this, the eighth issue, Creator Owned Heroes comes to an end. Still, just because it’s the last issue doesn’t mean Jimmy Palmiotti, Justin Gray, Steve Niles, and company are cutting short the amount of content. Here’s the official descript of from Image: “KILL SWITCH,” Conclusion The game of death continues in it’s final chapter as Kill Switch, surrounded […]

Creator Owned Heroes #7 Review

The day will come when I read an issue of Creator Owned Heroes and realize the series is no longer getting better. (It has to stop sooner or later, right?) But it is not this day. Issue 7 once again feels groundbreaking, and it’s extra-sized to boot. Here’s the official description from Image: A brand new story by STEVE […]

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #4 Review

One of two Before Watchmen books released this week, Silk Spectre has been among the strongest of the BW series and is the first to reach its conclusion. Darwyn Cooke and Amanda Conner have done a brilliant job of filling in Laurie’s background, making her perhaps the most down-to-earth of all Watchmen‘s characters. Thanks to Conner’s pencils, the series is as much a teen […]

Creator Owned Heroes #6 Review

In my review of Creator Owned Heroes #5, I said it was the series’ most important issue up to that point. While that was true then, I think issue six will be more important still. Here’s the official description from Image: STARTING: a monthly feature featuring graphic strips and material by DARWYN COOKE. “KILLSWITCH,” Part Two Locked in […]

Creator Owned Heroes #5 Review

Creator Owned Heroes #5 is the most important issue of the series thus far, as two all-new stories begin. From a sales standpoint it should tests the book’s viability. Will readers be back for more COH when there’s less connection to the previous issue? It’s a problem all anthology series face, and for Heroes that time is […]

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #3 Review

I’ve been loving Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre from the very beginning. What started out as an Archie story set against the backdrop of the Watchmen universe is slowly aligning itself more and more with tone of its parent series, and the transition is fascinating. Here’s the official description of Silk Spectre #3 from DC: “San Francisco, baby. The […]

Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #2 Review

At first, Laurie thinks life is “hakuna matata” in Before Watchmen: Silk Spectre #2. But unlike the last issue, superheroics do come into play. Here’s DC‘s official description: “I’ve just come to a horrible realization…My mom would be really proud of me right now.” Plus, a new CRIMSON CORSAIR backup feature from writer LEN WEIN and artist […]
