The Superannuated Man #5 Review

With only one more issue to go, The Superannuated Man #5 puts readers at an interesting position.

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Transformers vs G.I Joe #4 Review

With a series like this, what else is there to say? Each issue gets more and more jam-packed and Transformers vs G.I Joe #4 is no exception. I’ve read it more than a couple of times now, just to try and take everything in. Not that that’s strictly a good thing, mind you… The official […]

ANGRY BIRDS/TRANSFORMERS #1 Review

Yes… that’s Angry Birds / Transformers #1. If there was ever a sign that IDW liked slapping it’s franchises together, this would be it. Still, let’s not judge a book just by its cover – or the absurdity of its title. Is it any good when you get into meat of it? The official description […]

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #208 Review

G.I Joe: A Real American Hero #208 is currently taking place in Dublin, but in the end it’s all robots, ninjas and guns, isn’t it? I’m not saying this is a bad thing, but a long running title like this needs to mix it up once in a little while. The official description from IDW: […]

Dead Squad #2 Review

Dead Squad #2 presents readers with an interesting concept. If done well, it could be a strong, thoughtful read that questions the matters of life and death. Or, you know, it could be about three guys with guns who want to kill people. The official description from IDW: Betrayed by their superior officer, Blake, Hooper, […]

God Hates Astronauts #3 Review

There are some titles that are just too difficult to describe, but that in no way makes them terrible. God Hates Astronauts #3 is one such example and it continues to be quirky, funny and a little awesome.
