Transformers: Days of Decepticon #38 Review

Transformers: Days of Decepticon #38 delivers a somewhat satisfying conclusion to the current arc. Yet, at the same time, it does feel a little cheaty as it steers itself to wards the next big arc. The question, of course, is whether there’s still enough to enjoy here? The official description from IDW: THE ONYX INTERFACE! […]

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 […]

Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #4 Review

As the last issue of the mini series, Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #4 has to offer resolution to everything it set out to question. Now, while it hasn’t been a perfect ride, it’s been greatly enjoyable, so how does it choose to end things? The official description from IDW: FINAL FATE! This is it—DRIFT […]

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 […]

Dark Horse Presents #7 Review

With a title like Dark Horse Presents #7 – also it’s 200th issue – it’s difficult to summarise. After all, this issue has 80 pages of comics spread across various titles, writers and artists. You’re definately getting your money’s worth, but it also depends on how much of what’s inside is to your tastes. The […]

Elephantmen #62 Review

Elephantmen #62 marks a crucial point for the title; after finding it’s stride in the last year or so, each new issue has to continue to be as gripping without dropping the ball. We’ve had a few risks lately, so how does this issue follow up from last month’s cliffhanger? The official description from Image: […]

Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 Review

For a series that dances with issues of clarity and simplicty, Transformers vs G.I Joe #5 pushes the envelope a little too far. Nobody can say these issues don’t pack plenty of action, but the coherency of said action often seems to be the collateral damage in the process. First, the official description from IDW: […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #37 Review

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #37 might just be everything there is to love about this series. While the plot is far from simple, the title does a fantastic job thrilling, entertaining and intertwining around itself, all while offering enough laughs and action to keep things moving along. The series has been going from […]

G.I Joe #5 Review

G.I Joe #5 marks a strong problem with the current set-up. I’m enjoying every issue, but it seems to be going nowhere fast. Much is spoken about, but little seems to happen. Still, there’s something in it that seems to keep me reading for the mean time. The official description from IDW: FALL OF G.I. […]

Angry Birds/Transformers #3 Review

As far as mash ups go, this has certainly been interesting. Angry Birds / Transformers #3 is the penultimate issue in what can arguably be seen as IDW’s most unique cross over. So far the focus has been very much on fun, with a humorous look at both franchises. As for this issue? Well it’s […]

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 […]

Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #3 Review

As the penultimate chapter, Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #3 does suffer from the typical condition of most penultimate issues – it serves to build up to the final chapter. Still, there are more than a few handful surprises inside and, all in all, it’s entirely justified as an issue in it’s own right. The […]

CASANOVA: ACEDIA #1 Review

Some titles don’t really say much and Casanova: Acedia #1 is the perfect example of vague. However, despite a few difficult problems, it’s opening issue suggests a potential title ripe with narrative flare. The official description from Image: Marooned in Los Angeles with no memory of his past, Casanova Quinn takes on the mystery of […]

G.I JOE: SNAKE EYES: AGENT OF COBRA #1 Review

IDW’s G.I Joe universe has been a bit slow of late, but G.I Joe: Snake Eyes: Agent of Cobra #1 is the kick start it needs. This mini-series could be a title that focuses on the espionage, stealth and political aspects of the series without overdoing it. For a first issue, there’s plenty of potential […]

Transformers: Punishment Review

Transformers: Punishment is an interesting title, as far as one-shots go. It’s been hinted at, yet the entire product still feels very much out of the blue. Similarly, it’s style and design is a little different to the more recent comics, suggesting an approach similar to Monstrosity and Primacy but without the grander, epic setting. […]
