Bill & Ted Save the Universe #2

Jul 16, 2017

This is a great second issue, that still feels like a Bill and Ted story. I am interested to see where this story goes and hope the art and colors continue this marriage of perfection. Brian is taking the characters in new directions and I hope he explores Rufus more in future issues.

Black Magick #6

Jun 26, 2017

Black Magick is back and it came back strong. Greg continues to deliver a procedural drama that offers a believable sense of everyday life. Nicola continues with her career defining art with the beautiful assisted coloring of Chiara. Black Magick is a series you'd want to board again.

Demonic (2016) #1

Aug 22, 2016

This is a very chilling first issue that creates a mystery that's begging to be solved. These characters have an amazing depth and history waiting to be explored. Sebel writing and Niko's art are the perfect combination in bring this unsettling tale to life. Demonic may be about demons but it delves deeper into the the feeling of surrendering your free will and living with the consequences. A chilling and unsettling ride.

Dishonored #1

Jul 30, 2016

Dishonored succeeds at creating a tie in that is engaging to read, regardless of knowledge to the franchise. The artwork with Andrea and Marcelo on colors are the perfect team up. This is a must read for fans of the game and people who love adventures and steampunk. This issue had a lot to deliver and I think it did and the coming issues will create a tie in the fans can be proud of.

Dollface #1

Jan 21, 2017

Overall, this is a comic Zombie Tramp fans will love, fans of a more perverted humour too. However, readers who enjoy extensive plots will be disappointed. DollFace is off to a slow start, but that may change once the arc fully kicks off. This is a character that will be cosplayed at the next comic convention though, and Dan should be proud of that.

Eleanor and the Egret #1

Eleanor and the Egret is an interesting read that tries to bring a lot of originality to it. Some of this works fantastically while other parts need some development before it works.

Ghost Rider (2016) #1

Dec 8, 2016

Overall this is a good first issue that just has not quite found its footing, in a universe that hasn't found its footing. There is great potential in this book and hopefully with the issues to come it will feel like the ghost rider that burst into our lives in 2014.

Ghost Rider (2016) #2

Dec 29, 2016

OverallGhost rider issue 2 finds it footing and feels like a Ghost rider comic. There is some great art and colors. The narrative is coming together perfectly. Where this arch goes is intriguing and what Felipe does will be great to see.

Ghost Rider (2016) #5

Mar 30, 2017

Issue 5 is the best issue of the series and a great end to a series with a rocky start. It's a shame this is the end but if the last line of the comic is correct this isn't the last we've seen of Robbie Reyes. As for now it ends on a high and there's not much more you could ask for.

Josie and the Pussycats #1

Sep 7, 2016

Josie and the pussy doesn't knock it out of the park the same as the other Archie books. However it does get a home run. Mok's art and Andre's colors adds enough energy to leave you wanting more. Archie comics is the company to beat and Josie and the Pussycats are further proof of this. It doesn't matter if you're an Archie fan or not, this is a book to jump on. This issue may have been predictable you know with Marguerite at the helm we'll get something familiar yet original.

Jughead: The Hunger (One Shot) #1

Mar 11, 2017

Jughead the hunger reminds readers why Archie comics has a horror line and why it's so good. Frank, Michael and Dee do an amazing Job and it's a shame this is a one-shot as I'd love to see more from this team on this title.

KISS (2016) #1

Oct 14, 2016

Overall this is a great read. Although nothing spectacular happened and Kiss only made brief cameo like appearances, it however was a fun read that sets the wheels of this series in motion. Amy and Kewber are great in this issue and I hope that continues. This issue is accessible by everyone, Kiss fan or not, that's the beauty of Amy's writing.

OverallThis is another great issue that is written by KISS fans for KISS fans. This is an issue anyone can enjoy as it's fun and entertaining, that's what you want in a comic like this. The best way to read this issue is to have KISS playing in the background.

KISS (2016) #9

KISS (2016) #10

Jul 24, 2017

Overall issue 10 is a brilliant read and fitting conclusion to a great series. Amy has written a KISS title that will be remembered as one of the best KISS titles. Kewber's art is a great fit for the series. I would have liked this series to have continued as it would have been interesting to see the next chapter of their adventures. However, this is a heartwarming conclusion that doesn't disappoint.

KISS Forever Special #1

May 21, 2017

This is a fine special and a good change of pace from the current series. This does suffer from some unanswered questions that does affect the development of the story. The writing is however, brilliant along with the art. This special has you wanting more and hopefully we'll see that.

KISS/Vampirella #1

KISS/Vampirella #2

Issue 2 is an improvement on issue 1 in terms of the writing as there is a better sense of development and direction. The art is another great addition to Annapaola and Valentina's portfolios. The story has picked up interest in this issue and looks to continue in the next.

KISS/Vampirella #3

Jul 31, 2017

KISS/Vampriella's third outing is the best yet. Sebela captures the essence of KISS & Vampirella in this fun issue. Martello does a great job on the art as each pose is dynamic, however more motion is needed in order the keep the scenes from becoming static. The colors are great as they don't over power the art or the page. With only two issues left of the series it's shaping up to be a enjoyable ride.

Planet of Daemons issue three is the best issue in the series, even if it repeats itself a bit. The art and colors continue to improve. It will be interesting to see how this series ends as so far it has been predictable but maybe that's Kevin's end game to seem predictable to leave room for the twist ending.

Saban's Power Rangers: Aftershock (OGN) #1

Apr 10, 2017

Power Rangers Aftershock is a solid read for anyone who loved the film. The book doesn't offer anything standout apart from a new character that if introduced in the sequel could take the film in an interesting direction. The team produced a nice follow-up to the film but don't strike a perfect partnership.

This issue is a great read, however it's the art that makes this issue. Porter produces some great art that's accompanied with Hi-Fi's colors to create some beautiful pages.J.M. DeMatteis and Keith Giffen do a fine job with the writing however the conflict with Velma and Daphne is getting repetitive. However with the apparent closure of this conflict could bring something new next issue.

Skin & Earth #2

Aug 5, 2017

Issue 2 is a beautifully drawn and written issue that has philosophy that can be used in everyday life. Lights also doesn't include this ideology of thinking to sound pretentious and superior but to develop a character and explore their thinking. The story is shaping up well and I can't wait for new music & issue 3.

Tales from the Darkside #4

This is a great read that has the same vibe the TV series did. However this issue came too soon as there is so much to play with. This is a series with so much untapped potential, that the ending as great as it was felt a little cold. Tales from the Darkside is a great read with plenty of potential.

The Mummy #2

Dec 23, 2016

Milligan and Freire prove once again that they are the team to convert this classic film to the world of comics. The slow build-ups pay off and the realism art walks in perfect balance with the colors. The conclusion of this series is so uncertain it makes every issue a joy to read.

The writing and art make this comic feel like a modernized noir crime tale, as a result making this an intelligent and enjoyable tale that adds to the Lovecraftian mythos. How this tale ends is anyone's guest but what I do know is that I will be glad I was there for the ride.
