Acts of Evil: Venom Annual #1

Aug 5, 2019

The "Venom Annual" #1 Double Feature doubles down its bets that you want more Lady Hellbender! If more Lady Hellbender isn't what you're looking for in an Annnnnnnnual Venommmmm, then the art, by masters Di Meo and Ibez, is worth the price of admission alone.

Batman (2016) Annual #4

Nov 4, 2019

For some, "Batman Annual" #4 will be another great Batromp. For others, "Batman Annual" #4 will be the summer fireworks atop Batman's legacy. For DC Comics and Batman, "Batman Annual" #4 is just another day in the book. Maybe after his prolonged suffering, Bruce can catch a break, but given his nature as a constant, Batman's work never ends.

Batman: Curse of the White Knight #4

Oct 28, 2019

Light on heart-stringing, heavy on exposition, "Batman: Curse of the White Knight" #4 suffers a fatal crack along its narrative spinal column, but the pain, which is yearned to be felt, ends up numbing. This is the mini-series's halfway point, so maybe this is its creative and figurative low point.

Clue: Candlestick #3

Jul 29, 2019

An act of pop art exhibitionism nostalgia huffing. I flipped the board when I saw Uncle Pennybags.

Criminal (2019) #8

Sep 30, 2019

Visually representing security, danger, and death with coloring choices is one of the many ways "Criminal" #8 keeps pace with the series at-large in a seemingly wheel-spinning issue, but this is "Criminal" where nothing is so simple.

Ghost Rider (2019) #1

Oct 7, 2019

To be fair, aiming for an October release really amps up favor for the Spirit of Vengeance" what with all the spooky happenings and adoration for EC-Comics-like horror titles" but little much else lands for "Ghost Rider" #1, which is a shame, because being a) King of Hell and b) a flaming dullahan should be RAD.

Go Go Power Rangers: Forever Rangers #1

Jun 24, 2019

Hope you didn't like Alpha-1. Much more cleaning of the house than a coda, making room for the next crossover event in a one-shot rather than a 22-pager.

Hit-Girl (2018): Season Two #6

Jul 22, 2019

Hit-Girl is the Battle Angel Alita movie. Brutal, imaginative, dumb action fun with an easy-to-be-entertained-by female lead.

Killer Groove #5

Oct 21, 2019

"Killer Groove" #5 is a Masters-class in getting you to read it even if it failed at getting you to care for its characters. The flawed edges of its nicotine-stained recording will remind you what the crime genre, at large, has to offer, even if you forget it" that crime comics as we know them are obsolete but continue to evolve.

Marvel Monsters (2019) #1

Sep 2, 2019

If you're buying "Marvel Monsters" #1, you're buying it for Superlog and Gaigan-Yamazaki's Showa-era Kirby-adjacent cutaways. Boldly inked monsters set atop intentional palette shifted red-oranges with subtitles in English AND furigana" the only quality distancing these pages apart from literal lost treasures is the glossy paper they're printed on.

Outer Darkness #8

Jul 15, 2019

In space, only ghost nazis, insect gods, devil crewmen, and your phobias can hear you scream. TL;DR: pls read this comic.

Space Bandits #1

Jul 8, 2019

It's immediately female-hatey, which is par for the course on female revenge stories, but this book doesn't exist in a vacuum even if it's in space.
