All of the adulation for this series is well deserved. And if you missed out on the first run of Bitter Root, the sixth installment is a great way to catch up on the story.

Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #1

Sep 25, 2019

All in all, it's a good, fun read from Marvel. The art is in sync with the story, except the cover which features Ka-Zar and Gorilla Man who really don't play a factor. The last page alone is worth the buy, and it leaves you anticipating the next arc in this nicely written story.

Excellence #4

Aug 21, 2019

Spencer is coming to the conclusion that his father and the Aegis are part of a massive control system. This internal struggle is now pushing him to his emotional limit. Leaving him more out of control, projecting the disdain and fraternal angst he has for Raymond Dales onto anyone he encounters. Yet his anger is just the facade of a young man that's seeking to prove his father wrong and gain his approval at the same time. "Excellence" is a magical journey into Afrofuturism. Written, colored, and drawn by people of color. But it does not have that targeted audience feel to it. The latest installment has us asking more questions about the Aegis' motive and wondering where the trajectory of Spencer's angst will land next!

Excellence #5

Sep 18, 2019

Once again there is some outstanding artistic work by Khary Randolph, especially in the characters faces and the detail in their accessories. The esthetic is hip-hop cool with superhero sharpness that adds a clean feel to every page.

Killadelphia #1

Dec 29, 2019

The way the two Sangster's stories are run parallel until the inevitable convergence is a sign that Killadelphia is going to push the boundaries of the noir genre and urban vampire tales deeper. The flashbacks have a larger purpose in explaining the predicament of the current Philadelphia landscape that the younger Sangster finds himself in by revealing causation through the eyes of his Dad as he works through his missing person cases and the one that eventually causes his demise. Killadelphia is a very strong first effort that lays the groundwork for the future and develops the main characters, assisted by some gritty artwork that glues the story together, ending with a plot twist that leaves you on the edge of your seat waiting for the next page. It is indeed a gift from the comics gods to end a great year for Independent comics.

Killadelphia #2

Jan 5, 2020

A lovely second serving of blood, with a great twist that will keep you on your toes for the third installment. What happens when the brooding Tevin crosses paths with the Sangsters investigation? Is John Adams, a benevolent vampire king sacrificing the few to save the many, or is he an agent of chaos, biding his time in Killadelphia? Definitely building excitement for the next installment.

Killadelphia #4

Mar 4, 2020

Killadelphia has been extraordinary up to this point. The added dimension of emotional attachments adds a layer of humanity to this horror story. The socio-political undertones of Tevin helping out a cop that sees him as the enemy is a relevant discussion and terrific to see play out.
