Transformers: Days of Deception #37 Review

For a series with a small scale and large implications for it’s own universe, Transformers: Days of Deception has had a certain amount of difficulty when it come to scale and timing. On one hand, it wants to try story driven action yet, on the other hand, it keeps racing ahead as if its getting […]

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 […]

The Superannuated Man #5 Review

With only one more issue to go, The Superannuated Man #5 puts readers at an interesting position. Normally with a mini-seriesthis small, it’s easy to see what the general plan is and where the comic is going. But this? This is exciting, unique and much harder to solve. The official description from Image: One of […]

Elephantmen #61 Review

For a series that seems to find itself in some interesting corners, Elephantmen #61 seems to be a rather slow issue. Don’t get me wrong, it is thoroughly enjoyable, but there’s no avoiding how slow things are moving at the moment. Still, maybe that’s a good thing? The official description from Image: Sahara, the Red […]

Deadly Class #10 Review

If there’s one thing Deadly Class has proven itself good at – of which Deadly Class #10 is no expcetion – it’s making everything self contained, yet part of a wider arc or story. Case in point, we have another issue full of unique, twisted humour and frantic story telling. Sure, it’s not going to […]

God Hates Astronauts #5 Review

For a series that’s proven itself as varied, hilarious and utterly capable of delivering, God Hates Astronauts #5 has a lot to live up to. While it has a few bumps along the way, this fifth issue definately holds up to the kind of high standard we’ve seen so far. The official description from Image: […]

Bionic Woman: Season Four #4 Review

Well, the last issue ended with a pretty big reveal, leaving Bionic Woman: Season Four #4 with something to live up to. Fortunately, as far as closing the first arc goes, it manages to get a great deal of things right. First, the official description from Dynamite: It’s the final issue of Dynamite’s Bionic Woman […]

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #36 Review

Transformers: More Than Meets The Eye #36 is a great example of how to not get bogged down in details and just have fun. Or, in other words, how do stop worrying about time travel. It’s not perfect, but it’s thoroughly enjoyable. First, the official description from IDW: OUTLAWS! Before the war, Orion Pax was […]

Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #2 Review

While the first issue was good – but failed to really go anywhere – Transformers: Drift: Empire of Stone #2 kicks the mini-series into a direction it needs to go in. It might be an issue late, but this really helps uplift the series into something with potential. The official description from IDW: ONCE A […]

G.I Joe #4 Review

It might still be early days for this new season, but G.I Joe #4 seems to be getting into it’s stride. Whether that’s any good or not… well, that depends on how you like your G.I Joe. The official description from IDW: ON THE RUN! The G.I. Joe team is in pursuit of their target, […]

G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #209 Review

For a series that often struggles to flip between reality and aloof, over-the-top fun, G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #209 really knows how to tow the line. For every serious threat it tries to present with one hand, it teases some ridiculous notion with the other The official description from IDW: The secrets and […]

Angry Birds Transformers #2 Review

Angry Birds Transformers #2 has many of the same issues as the first. It’s a weird mesh of theme and characters, yet somehow I can’t help but think it’s compelling to younger audiences. At the end of the day, it is fun and this issue definately seems to keep up with that idea. The official […]

Dead Squad #3 Review

Dead Squad #3 has its share of niggling bumps, but it’s not strictly a bad wide. You can forgive a few faults if its still fun and, although it does dance on the line, it might still be doing okay. The official description from IDW: The Dead Squad has thirteen hours to live and only […]

Savage Dragon #200 Review

How do you celebrate an 200th issue? Because I bet that’s a better idea than what Savage Dragon #200 has done. Before I get into the meat and bones of this downright dissapointing issue, I should throw up a fairly big spoiler warning. Okay… First, the official description from Image: Savage Dragon is out of […]

7th Sword #6 Review

Admittedly, I went into 7th Sword #6 trying to like it, while expecting unoriginal drivel all the same. Once I read it, I was not surprised. While it dabbles with originallity, it never gets more than a corner of a toe into the water. First, the official description from IDW: When the 7th Sword finds […]

Transformers: Days of Decepticon #36 Review

Transformers: Days of Decepticon #36 really kicks the new plot into gear – even if I’m not sure we were done with the old one. Ah well, how’s this new ‘Days of Decepticon’ malarky holding up? First, the official description from IDW: DAYS OF DECEPTION! All-out war erupts on the streets of Tokyo when PROWL […]

’68 Homefront #4 Review

Well, here it is; the final chapter of the current ’68 series. ’68 Homefront #4 has a lot to round up – and hopefully tease a future title – so how does it manage to do this all in one issue? The official description from Image: Trapped in a snow bound cabin somewhere outside Black […]

God Hates Astronauts #4 Review

How many other titles have crab people and a king tiger? God Hates Astronauts #4 has all of that, but so did the last 3 issues. While it’s certainly funny and enjoyable, what can this title do to stay fresh? The official description from Image: The invasion of King Tiger Eating a Cheeseburger’s space crab […]

Shaft #1 Review

Skeptical going in to Shaft #1 but came out surprised and entertained. You will too. Official Description from DYNAMITE: Who’s the black private dick that’s a sex machine with all the chicks? Shaft! Created by author Ernest Tidyman, and made famous in a series of novels and films, iconic hero Shaft makes his comic book […]

G.I Joe #3 Review

The third issue in, G.I Joe #3 is an important issue. I want to love this series and, while I do like it, it needs to that little more to feel like a true G.I Joe title. So why do I still feel dissapointed? The official description from IDW: THE FALL OF G.I. JOE continues…and […]
