'68: Last Rites #1

Jul 23, 2015

Image has some of the best books I’ve ever read. Lately, they’re just proving that to be even more accurate. This book is definitely one of the better books I’ve read this week. You just HAVE to check it out.

13 Coins #5

Mar 9, 2015

It took a second read to soak in all the awesomeness of this book. But what I got was: it reads at a stable pace, the artwork is appropriate for the subject matter, and it sends a good message. Brennan and Jackson write the script in such a way that it is easy to follow, and keeps your attention. You can try to read it fast, but you might miss something (as you read, there's a lot going on in this issue). It's not a skim-it-over kind of book; it's a sit-down-with-your-glasses-on kind of book.

1872 #1

Jul 9, 2015

Giving these classic characters new and different stories is something I wasn’t sure would work, but Marvel seems to have done a very fine job of it. It’s neat to see these characters without all the high tech stuff they have in the future Marvel stories. I’d say issue one is a success!

If you’re a fan of any of these Marvel characters, you have to read this series, because you’ve never seen them like this! Issue #2 includes Elektra, Bullseye, Grizzly, and Doc Ock! Duggan and Virella are a power team, who give us some really amazing work.

This is a really great addition to 1872. Duggan does an amazing job of moving the story forward, and perfectly captures the western ambience. There’s a lot of action to come, so keep reading this awesome series!

3 Floyds: Alpha King #1

May 5, 2016

Overall, this is a simple but clever nod to the brewing industry. Right now, there isn’t much tension, but I’m hoping more will come. It’s a silly look at a creative world based on beer. For any beer and comic fan, this is what you’ve been waiting for!

3 Floyds: Alpha King #2

Jul 7, 2016

Bottom line is, this series is amazing. It’s brilliant—genius, even. It’s a great way to nod to the brewing community and bring attention to the ever-growing population of drinkers and brewers. This comic is worth every second of the read.

A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong #1

Mar 17, 2016

I’d definitely say that the first issue is a success. I’m beyond stoked to read more; things can only get more intriguing from here. I’m bummed that Mary-Maria is such a jerk (it like really, really made me sad), but I’m looking forward to seeing how she’s going to use the satchel to her advantage. As for Armstrong and Archer, they’re in a bit of trouble right now, so it’ll be cool to see how they handle it together. This duo is strong, and definitely worth following.

This series has very quickly picked up the pace. We’re already seeing a lot of action, adventure, commotion, and a ton of awesomeness. I cannot wait to see more of these guys’ adventures. We’re only at issue #2, so you have time to catch up and keep reading along; you will not be disappointed.

A&A: The Adventures of Archer and Armstrong #3

May 12, 2016

Valiant is releasing some amazing books these days, and this has got to be one of—if not the—best. This series is dramatic in circumstance but lighthearted with humor. The creative team on this series is doing an amazing job of delivering talented, quality material that couldn’t bore you even on the 10th re-read. This is brilliant stuff that is well worth the read for anyone who enjoys a good story.

So, the Bacchus affair is over. Roberts and Lafuente have done a brilliant, awesome, genius job on these first four issues of the series. For anyone who likes action/fantasy/comedic comic books, I fully recommend this series. Next issue, we see Archer and a familiar character from another series, Faith! Keep reading to see what the heck that’s all about.

Archer and Armstrong are onto their next adventure, of which I have no idea what to expect—but I know it’s going to be worth reading. As for this issue, it was great to explore Archer more and see how he acts away from Armstrong. For fans of both A&A and Faith, this is the perfect issue for you!

A-Force #1

May 27, 2015

Molina’s artwork is just as telling as the dialogue, like when Sister Grimm blames She-Hulk for Ms. America’s fate. Each character shows expression more than I’ve seen in a lot of comics these days—Molina goes above and beyond the call of duty here. Basically, this is an amazing comic book, and women in leadership positions is becoming a big thing nowadays. Yay, feminism! You should definitely put this book on your “must-read” list this year.

A-Force #2

Jul 7, 2015

A-Force is quickly turning into one of my favorite comic books, not because they’re all women, and not because there’s good action in the storyline (both are true), but because the book itself is always aesthetically pleasing, and written in such a way that it pushes me to keep reading. Upon first looking at issue #1, I knew I was going to like this series, because it just makes me want to read it. If you haven’t started the series yet, get on it, man!

A-Force #4

Sep 11, 2015

This series has been absolutely EPIC over the past four issues. There has been so much emotion and so many feelings across the board of A-Force members, and it’s awesome to see that despite it all, they are still able to work together to protect their home. Keep reading to see how these women take on a horde of flesh-eating zombies.

A-Force (2016) #1

Jan 12, 2016

This issue is kind of just a way to introduce new readers to the A-Force and its members. Because of that, Wilson doesn’t have the ability to do anything “out there” just yet. However, I have no doubt at all that she will. This is a solid issue that is a great start to what I’m hoping will lead to a really awesome reunion.

Abe Sapien #32

Apr 20, 2016

This issue doesn’t have too much exchange of dialogue, but it says way more than words could. We get to see Abe in new territory (even though it’s a familiar place). The creative team has done an absolutely fantastic job with this issue. In a word, it’s beautiful. Every Hellboy/Abe Sapien fan needs to read this.

Overall, this is a great issue to add to the series. We’re learning a lot about Abe just as Abe is learning a lot about himself. This story arc has become really revealing, entertaining, and enthralling. For anyone who is a fan of Mignola’s work, there is no way you can miss this series.

Adventure Time #41

Jun 22, 2015

This story is just as fun and upbeat as the issue itself. Jacobson’s writing very much so resembles the tone of Adventure Time, as well as his artwork. This issue is overall filled with laughs and suspense. I might be biased, seeing as I’m a long-term Adventure Time fan, but this issue is definitely worth checking out, and the series itself, too. If you get the chance, pick it up and let us know what you think!

Adventure Time #43

Aug 24, 2015

Issue #43 proves to be a really great addition to the series, moving the plot forward quite a bit. We get to see Finn and Jake in positions where they usually aren’t, and it’s pretty interesting to watch them take on the town as fugitives. They both turn into one strange cupcake looking character. Adventure Time never lets me down, and I promise this issue won’t let you down, either.

Jake is on quite the adventure right now. I’m not sure how he’s going to face the governess, but I’m looking forward to finding out. Things are picking up the pace, so we should see some action pretty soon (we saw a little this issue, but not too much). This issue is easy to follow, understandable, fun, energetic, and entertaining. It’s definitely a necessity for any Adventure Time fan.

This is an incredible addition to the Adventure Time label. Marceline has always been my favorite character, and it’s awesome to see her in such a vulnerable position, gaining power as she deals with it. Hanna K has done a great job with this one-shot, making it a truly awesome read—crucial for any and all Adventure Time fans!

I have no idea where Gunter is, but hopefully these wizards can help Ice King out. I always liked Gunter. He can be a pushover, sure, but he’s adorable. Maybe the Ice King can stop thinking about himself long enough now to find him. As of now, he’s too into his new style and fitting in with his new friends. I have no doubt, though, that he is on the right track and will find Gunter soon enough. This is a great issue to add to an already amazing series in a very successful franchise. Definitely worth the read for any and all Adventure Time fans.

Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift #1

When you think of Adventure Time, you usually think of “Jake the Dog and Finn the Human,” rather than “Marceline the Vampire Queen.” This story is interesting for all Adventure Time fans, but if you love Marceline as much as I do, Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift is definitely for you.

Adventure Time: Marceline Gone Adrift #2

Feb 12, 2015

The writing in this issue is consistent with that of the last, in that it reflects the typical slang-imbued dialogue of the Adventure Time series. The artwork is the same, being the colorful and cartoony style that it is. This storyline is one of the more interesting ones, I mean, how many times do you see people shot into space? It’s all part of Adventure Time’s fantastical world of magical beings and candy people. It’s a lighthearted concept with some intense themes, and always fun.

Afterlife With Archie #8

May 4, 2015

Overall, I think it was a great idea to bring back a classic comic book and reboot it as a horror genre book. This is something we don’t see too often but, when done right, can be a raging success. I think that’s what we have here, with Afterlife with Archie. Needless to say, I recommend this book for anyone who used to read Archie, or anyone that wants to get into Archie.

Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #1

Jun 5, 2015

This comic book, though silent, is one of the best, most suspenseful, beautiful and majestic books I have laid my eyes upon. However, in order to appreciate and understand the cinematic feel to it, you need to set aside time to look very carefully at each panel, so as to fully comprehend what is going on. This isn’t a book to go through quickly, just because there are no words. And if you have the time to really enjoy it, I recommend it for every single one of you, no matter what your “style” of book is.

Age of Reptiles: Ancient Egyptians #4

This is a beautiful conclusion to a very beautiful miniseries. All ends are tied up with suspense and action. With Delgado’s illustrations and Hill’s colors, this issue is visually stunning. It isn’t easy to provide a complete narrative without any words, but Delgado does it, and does it well. If you haven’t read this series, you’re missing out.

Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies #1

Jun 25, 2015

I’d say the first issue was a success, but it lacks one focal point or a center of struggle for both the Marvel Zombies and the robots. Nonetheless, it takes us into new regions of Battleworld to explore the conflict that’s happening there, and artistically speaking, it is done extremely well. This is definitely one to keep your eye on.

This miniseries has been a joy to keep up with. It’s a really intense and unique storyline that creates a whole new type of enemy. How cool is that?! Freaking zombies and robots; I can’t get over it. But once again, the heroes triumph. Well, it’s up for debate. Ultron and his army took a hit, but the heroes took an even bigger one, I think. Either way, this is one really awesome issue, and a great way to close out the series.

Airboy #1

Jun 10, 2015

This book is intensely honest and beautifully disgusting, but you still won’t be able to stop reading, no matter how much your eyes squint and body cringes. Instead of taking a Golden Age character and bringing his old self back to life in a boring reboot of adventures we’ve already seen, Robinson and Hinkle create a new work of art worth all the praise that it gets, and much more.

Airboy #3

Aug 7, 2015

I think I was right in predicting this to be an incredible series. We now have characters that are getting closer with each other (James and Airboy’s in-depth conversation), and new levels of characters that we haven’t yet seen. Airboy is exhibiting not only anger, but revenge. James even cries in this issue because he thinks he is bipolar, but he’s too scared to be medicated. From a medicated bipolar person’s standpoint, the tears are understandable. The characters are no longer dorks doing drugs; they’re turning into real human beings with emotions, who make mistakes and learn from them. It can only get better from here, so tag along for the awesomeness that is Airboy!

Airboy #4

Nov 12, 2015

I have been a fan of the new Airboy series from issue #1. Greg and James create this series so perfectly, while in direct coordination with one another. The series brings back the old story of Airboy, while the creative team puts a modern and semi-autobiographical spin on it. This is definitely worth a read (for anyone over 18). I don’t care what genre you’re into or what you’ve heard about Airboy; I recommend it to each and every one of you, with the highest of regards.

As we all know, I'm big on nostalgia, and I'm a big '90s kid. That means I grew up with Peter and Mary Jane's relationship. This book hits home, in the best way possible. It's a heartfelt progression of a beloved character, over the span of what his life would have been like if the '90s Spider-Man stories carried out. This is a beautiful representation on one aspect of Peter Parker's life, and I can't wait to see where it goes from here. If you support Peter and Mary Jane's relationship, this book is definitely for you.

It’s a difficult task, taking such an old and cherished character, and turning him (and his friends) into something completely different. Be that as it may, Waid and Staples are definitely the right duo to take on the challenge. So far, I’d say the all new Archie series is doing pretty well, and is giving us a brand new character, with the same old goofy-but-cute characteristics.

Archie is a classic series that Waid has taken to revamping for us.

Archie Vs Sharknado #1

Jul 23, 2015

I was, in all honesty, expecting this book to be kind of stupid, because it's mixing old (Archie) with [fairly] new (Sharknado). Ferrante and Parent, though, are able to make it work just enough to be entertaining. I found myself gape-mouthed and scrunch-faced at some of the images. If a book can get me to do that, it's a good one to me.

Armor Wars doesn’t directly tie-in with Secret Wars, and I’m very thankful for that.

Some stuff is the same, but not a lot. This series is meant to be the future of the evolution, progression from the last series. I have no idea where this is going from issue #1, and I'm glad I don't, because for once, the suspense feels kind of nice. Athena herself is a badass, going from ordering an execution to grabbing a weapon herself to dying and coming back to life, and crushing someone else's head with her bare hands"all in the first issue. Needless to say, I'm already addicted.

B.P.R.D.: Hell On Earth #132

Jun 24, 2015

This book is just one issue in a series of consistency and brilliance. Mignola, being Mignola, writes of the B.P.R.D. with ease and flow, letting us calmly but excitedly move from page to page with a hungering want for more. Instead of shoving a bunch of action at us, Mignola and Arcudi take their time to write out a story arc for us to be drawn into, and emotionally invested in—as much as Kraus is emotionally invested in finding himself and coming to terms with what he has done, as well as what he is yet to do. If you’re a Hellboy fan, you can’t afford to pass this book up.

This is a really simple issue that really doesn’t contribute all too much to the overall story arc. The only thing that might move things forward is when Ashley says she might go back to the B.P.R.D. This comic has a really eerie tone to it, which is typical of the Hellboy franchise’s books. It truly does depict Hell on Earth, but it’s contained. Nothing too chaotic happened, so I’m kind of bummed about that. The creative team, however, did a fantastic job with this issue’s execution, so I’m pretty happy. For any and all fans of Hellboy and the B.P.R.D., this is a must-read.

This issue isn’t much more than exploration of the characters. There isn’t a lot of action and, when there is, it is only in a flashback. It’s a quiet issue with a lot of information to take in.

Until issue #3, there is much to think about after reading this one.

Big Con-Job #1

Mar 9, 2015

Although all four main characters are kind-hearted and realistic people, I personally think they’re going to go for it. You can only go so far without money, and these old actors (and one actress) sound desperate. Despite the fact that robbing San Diego Comic Con is a not-so-bright idea, they seem like smart people, and will go about it in a tactical way. Honestly though, I have no idea if they will get away with it. There are two outcomes, and I’m 50/50. But, I’ll tell you this much: I can’t wait for issue #2 so I can see what happens!

That’s why we cry while watching movies or reading novels—not because it’s a sad story, but because we are picturing ourselves in that exact same situation (i.e. The Notebook). In a science fiction yet realistic story, both Barbiere and Peterson are able to evoke emotions out of the reader that just make them want to read more (honestly, I was upset when I got to the last page). This isn’t the easiest thing to do, so I recommend you read this book to see just how it’ll tug on your heart strings, and boggle your mind.

Broken World #2

Jun 30, 2015

This book is one that I love to keep up with. The series is home to a unique and interesting plot that we ourselves can put our lives in to think of what choices we would make if put in Elena’s situation(s). There was some foreshadowing to the use of weaponry against Elena and her two friends, so we’ll have to read issue #3 to find out what happens!

Needless to say, this is worth the read. Despite the fact that we’ve read it and seen it in films before, it’s still a concept that we find interesting, and one that we won’t lose interest in any time soon. So, read this book as soon as you can, and with an open mind, too.

Overall, Ewing brings a lot of social issues  to his writing. More than the issues at hand, this book focuses on the individual characters.

These are some seriously righteous stories that are unfortunately justified to be true in the world today. It’s really upsetting, but honestly, I’m not sad after reading this issue. I’m pretty happy to see that I’m not the only one who thinks a lot of the world is unreasonable. Not only that, but these stories aren’t random tales told for the Hell of it. They have purpose and meaning; they make you think. It has been a long time coming, but the CBLDF has done a damn fine job of letting this industry finally get a hand at telling the truth.

This is a great tie-in to Marvel’s summer event that is Civil War II. I’m stoked to see how everything fits together. I actually hope we see more of Damage Control. The only thing that throws me off about this issue is the cover. We have Iron Man, Captain Marvel, the Hulk, Deadpool, Captain America, She-Hulk, the Vision, and all the big heroes that you all know about—but they are nowhere in the issue. The few times they appear, it’s only for a panel or two at a time. That’s a bit deceptive, but the issue is worth a read.

Dept. H #1

Apr 22, 2016

This is an insanely interesting story with artwork that just further proves the urgency and danger of Mia’s situation. I mean, the design of the suit that she wears is beautiful! We’re going to see things like this throughout the series, I’m sure. Matt Kindt has said that the inspirations for this series include “the 1970s GI Joes, the Fisher-Price Adventure People toy line, Tintin, Agatha Christie, Raymond Chandler, Moby Dick, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Sherlock Holmes, Jacques Cousteau, and a healthy fear of drowning.” If you’re into mysteries and enjoy any of the aforementioned influences, join Mia on her underwater adventure!

This issue is a great follow-up to the first of the series. Now, there is an even bigger problem than murder for this team and it'll be fun to see how they handle it. Hopefully Mia and Raj can put aside their differences to save the entire staff. I'm really looking forward to seeing the whole of this Colossus Squid, so I really hope Kindt shows it off next issue. We'll have to wait and see!

This issue is definitely a success. We get a lot of character development and a lot of mystery. Even though this is a story about robots, we still get a decent amount of emotion thrown in. This is a brilliant end to the first story arc of the series. This is one of the best new series that Image has released lately, and I’m already itching for more.

Deus Ex: Children's Crusade #1

Feb 16, 2016

This series is a good way to keep fans busy until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided comes out. As of now, I'm not feeling too much of a connection with the characters, but I'm hoping that'll change. I want to feel emotionally invested in them, but it's just not happening. That issue aside, this issue is an amazing start to a filler series. It has a lot of action, a lot of violence, and an interesting storyline. For any fan of the video games, you've got to check this out. For anyone else, it's worth a read to get into the story.

We get to see a lot of serious subject matter here, which I absolutely love. We see war, familial tension, an unjust society, and the difference between two generations. The creative team avoids the usual romanticism of war and glorification of violence; instead, this series, thus far, seems like it is going to be more realistic—and I’m so thankful for that. It forces us to think, to learn, and to debate. This is an interesting and very promising premiere issue to the series, and I can’t wait for more.

If you don’t already, I strongly suggest you keep up with this series to find out just what the Hell Dr. Wells has up her sleeve, and if there is some hero coming to save Milly, Megs, and Edward (personally, I think Aidan will have somewhat of a big role next issue).

Grimm Fairy Tales Presents: Coven #1

Jul 2, 2015

This whole issue is interesting. The story flows with a very consistent fluidity, and keeps us enthralled for most of the time. The issue did, however, go by at a really fast pace. With minimal speech bubbles, and small ones when they appeared, I was able to look at a picture, soak it in, and turn the page, all within about six seconds, give or take. If you don't mind a book that goes by quickly, pick it up!

Groot #1

Jun 8, 2015

The only down point to this book is that it doesn’t measure up to the Rocket Raccoon series for more traditional and action-loving comic book fans. This book is so obviously all-ages, with the lighthearted script and adorable artwork. Even though I’m 21 and love gory horror comic books, this is one of the best books I’ve read this week, and that says something. For a story that’s not too intense, but will still hold your interest, Groot is definitely the way to go.

This whole series feels like some sophisticated horror writing to me. Bunn doesn’t stick to slashers and poltergeists, because we’ve seen all that before. Instead, we get a multi-pronged, sub-texted story with a lot of elements within it: the concept of the “outsider,” the acceptance of one’s family, constant judgment, community service, respect for our elders, etc. The list goes on and on! This is truly what sophisticated horror is all about, and I come to love it more and more with every issue.

The mansion’s detail, from brick foundation to decorative wallpaper, looks creepily fantastic. The characters look detailed and emotive, the storyline just took a big twist that I didn’t see coming, Jean-Francois Beaulieu’s colors make this issue so vibrant and inviting, and I cannot recommend this series enough.

Haunted Mansion #5

I’m a huge fan of the motion picture, The Haunted Mansion. This series has absolutely nothing to do with that and, in my review of issue #1, I was kind of bummed about that because I wanted to stick to the roots of the original story. Now that I’ve read through the entire miniseries, I’m actually really glad that the story wasn’t anything like the film. This is a fresh take on an old story that some of us grew up with. The creative team has done an amazing job and, if possible, I would love to see this become an ongoing series. I’m not, by any means, saying that there will be one (I don’t know and haven’t heard anything), but hey, I can dream. For now, read this series if you want to be thoroughly entertained by a scary-but-fun story about a kid who has one Hell of an adventure with some seriously awesome ghosts.

This proves to be a great horror series.

Invincible #118

Mar 27, 2015

I have to admit, I'm not too into superhero comics, and I never have been. Invincible is one of the few that can actually keep my interest, especially now that we're on another planet. Earth isn't boring or anything, but other planets are just more entertaining. That being said, this story is appropriate for new Invincible readers as well as the diehard fans that have every issue. It'll give you a mix of emotions and an overall good read. Now is the perfect time to start following Mark Grayson on this new chapter of his life.

This series can be looked at in so many different ways, and that’s one of the things I love most about it. It’s a piece of art that leaves a lot up to the reader to figure out.

This fantasy genre is a really interesting one, with new and unique concepts in terms of design and plot. I can’t wait to see more of the place that Abbie came back from!

This is definitely the type of book for all you fantasy fans out there. It has a bit of sci-fi thrown in, as well. Ha is probably one of the best storytellers I know and whose work I have the pleasure of reading while here at ComicWow! I most definitely recommend this issue, and series as a whole, to anyone looking for a good, interesting, entertaining read.

This is a great story for any fantasy genre fans out there. The creation of new worlds has always interested us, whether it’s in Star Wars, Avatar, Battleworld, or something else. It’s a difficult thing to master, but Ha has done a fine job of making this adventure purposeful, interesting, and fun. Keep reading to see if Mae and Abbie can save their father!

Marvel Universe: Avengers - Ultron Revolution #1

Jul 13, 2016

This is a great issue for any Avengers fan. It is more towards the cartoonish side (I mean, it was taken from a cartoon show), so it doesn't have as much dramatic/aesthetic appeal as other Avengers books I've seen. Nonetheless, it's a wonderful story that has the Avengers learning what it means to be a team again.

This book is the most perceptive I’ve read in a long while. Kot forces us to think about what is happening in the book, and how it relates to our modern world—and trust me, it does. I’m not going to get into the politics of it all, because my fingers might bleed from all the typing I would do, but I will say that this book sheds an immense amount of light on recent events and situations that we all have either seen, heard of, or been a part of. This book will make you THINK. With that, I pay my respects to the people whose names are mentioned in this book, and I trust that you all know a good comic book when you see one; pick this up, and get Google open to do some research as you read this phenomenal, socially accurate, heartbreaking, brutally honest series.

Jul 2, 2015

Fingerman’s writing is, I’ll say it again, extremely real. He shows us situations that we ourselves have been through, are going through, or will go through, and gives very plausible outcomes from those situations. The language is natural and fluid, as is the artwork. Fingerman isn’t afraid to show the ugly side of his characters, and that, the normalness of this book, is why I love it so much—and so will you.

Guy’s caption boxes let us know exactly what he is thinking, and a lot of it reigns true for anyone who has experienced depression. We look back a lot, instead of to the future. We dwell.

It gets a lot worse than what we have seen, but I’m glad it’s at least being shown. It doesn’t make us “crazy,” but simply a little different (in a bad way, unfortunately).

This book is not only one of stereotypes and kids brought together so we can have fun watching them try to survive, but it brings issues and observations from our own lives, to the forefronts of our thoughts. We tend to let topics that need discussing slide by, while we talk about things that do not need as much attention, like materialism, or how many likes a photo of ours got on Instagram. These kids are being thrown into the basics of life: the wild. No cell phone service. No internet access. Just them, and a will to survive. No Mercy is both entertaining and eye-opening, teaching us a lesson I think we all need to learn. There are bigger and more important things than friend counts and reblogs and inbox numbers… This book is a must read, so go pick it up. Seriously, right now. Go. And tell me what you think of it.

Jul 28, 2015

This issue is one that takes advantage of Battleworld and the Secret Wars label. It’s really great to see a series set in Battleworld and exploring Battleworld. Logan is a classic character whom we’ve seen a lot of, but never like this. I was drawn to this series by issue #1. It truly is a good read, and I hope you’ll give it the time it deserves.

Old Man Logan #4

Sep 1, 2015

This is, overall, a wonderful issue. The plot still isn’t going anywhere that I can see, but it’s a good issue in terms of writing style and definitely artistically. The series will be concluded next issue, and I am beyond curious to see how the creative team wraps things up. I’m hoping for something great!

Old Man Logan (2016) #3

Mar 4, 2016

Old Man Logan is a great way to give Wolverine some new objectives. We’ve always known Logan was sort of an angry man, but he is bitter and out for blood in this issue. Surprisingly, there is force just as strong that’s willing to stop him. For anyone who is even slightly interested in Marvel’s more mainstream titles, you’ve got to get your hands on a copy of this issue. Enjoy!

Onyx #1

Jun 29, 2015

This issue is a great introduction to an epic series about the possible end of the world. I like that Ryall and Rodriguez, instead of overusing technology, portray the future of the Earth as still having some nature, though most of it is gone, and being overpopulated. This could very well be what awaits us! It’s a scary thought, but a damn good comic book.

Over The Garden Wall Special #1

Aug 24, 2015

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a talking house, or a kid on an adventure, at that. However, this is still a very unique and entertaining book. It’s appropriate for every age, and enjoyable to just the same. I definitely recommend picking this up. It’s a fun, lighthearted way to get yourself out of reality and into a cute, amusing story.

Past Aways #9

Apr 5, 2016

This is the best spoil-free review I can give you, because I really want everyone to check this series out. This is an incredible sci fi series for anyone who loves some dramatic and character-driven storylines. The creative team of Kindt and Kolins is one that I’d like to take a moment to commend. The series is this brilliant because of their creativity, hard work, and genius! Here’s hoping we see more of this story at some point! For now, we say goodbye to Past Aways. It’s been [un]real.

Peanuts Friends: Forever 2016 Special #1

Jul 11, 2016

The one-page strips help break up the issue. There is a lot of humor, irony, nostalgia, and fun in this issue. It’s definitely suitable for all ages, but has themes that are a bit advanced. For anyone who read Peanuts as a kid, this is a must-read. You’ll get an overwhelmingly warm sense of your childhood that will make even the crappiest day a good one.

Penny Dreadful #2

Jun 24, 2016

Penny Dreadful started out as a TV show, airing for the first time in 2014. It has since gained a huge following with its unique storytelling and references from popular characters like Abraham Van Helsing, Count Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Frankenstein, etc. Now that it is a comic book series, the franchise will only grow bigger. This series is definitely suitable for any horror fan looking for a book that will cause a little uneasiness. It’s a really well-written series that isn’t too text-heavy, and with a plot that is equally reliant on its script and artwork. There is some true talent in this series, and we’ve only just begun to see it.

Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #1

Aug 13, 2015

I’m a new reader when it comes to Phonogram, so I was a little afraid that I might have missed out on something in the last decade or so. However, it was pretty easy to jump right in to. If you find yourself getting confused, Gillen has been kind enough to give us a glossary of key terms to know while reading, in the back of the issue. I’m liking this series, especially since it has rather cryptic undertones to it. I would definitely recommend this to a friend—and I’ll be keeping up with the series, too!

Phonogram: The Immaterial Girl #2

Sep 11, 2015

This series is amazing. It combines two of my favorite things in life: comics and music. The second issue is a really great addition to a series that was already amazing to begin with. I cannot wait to see if Emily can escape the screen and save what little of the Coven will be left by the time Claire is done with it. This is definitely a series to keep up with.

Pink Panther #1

Jun 15, 2016

This is a great issue to start off the series. American Mythology Productions is really bringing about nostalgia for a lot of us with this and The Three Stooges. This series is, for that matter, going to appeal to a lot of adults. Our childhoods are coming back to life! The great thing about these kinds of stories (that don't rely on previous installments for reader comprehension) is that anyone can read them. So, while we adults will have a blast reliving our youth, children today can just as easily enjoy these stories with us. This is most definitely worth the read.

Plunder #1

Mar 9, 2015

I think being trapped in the open would be terrifying"especially if the open is saltwater with all kinds of monsters and sharks and strong waves. Granted, I'm terrified of drowning, but it would still be disturbing, at the least. Lang and McKinley take an old concept and put an exciting twist on it in Plunder, making a thriller of a comic book that you should pick up as soon as possible (even if you do need the bucket).

I am definitely glad I read this issue, and I'm looking forward to more of Plutona already. The people at Image don't seem to ever rest, putting out comic after comic.

Alan freaking Moore writes this series. I don’t think I have to tell you to read this issue/series, but I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway. This is the most interesting series I’ve been keeping up with lately, and your life needs it, even if you don’t know it yet.
