Archie: 1941 #1

Sep 13, 2018

Issue #1 promises a realistic book based on history. I hope to see more than Archie handling the coming conflict since he was the only character in this issue with an arc.

Archie: 1941 #2

Oct 20, 2018

Archie: 1941 continues to be an amazing experience. Even in this sophomore issue, you can feel everything the team is going for, and it should only get better.

Border Town #1

Sep 6, 2018

Border Town #1 is everything you want from a first issue. It is topical, brutal, and fun. A must pull series that gets my highest recommendation.

Border Town #2

Oct 4, 2018

Border Town #2 introduces a big conflict and a cuddly Chupacabra for the readers to care for. The narrative moves forward and the action is all but absent, which is forgivable.

Border Town #3

Nov 9, 2018

Border Town #3 could be the best so far. It has the political edge back and the artwork is so cinematic it is begging for a TV adaptation. Look out for the great final splash page. It is getting interesting...I mean...more interesting.

Cosmic Ghost Rider #1

Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 has all but guaranteed us a great series like nothing we have seen before.

Cosmic Ghost Rider #2

Aug 1, 2018

Cosmic Ghost Rider is a breath of fresh air for Marvel right now. The book is comedic gold and the story is adorably weird. Read it!

Cosmic Ghost Rider #3

Sep 6, 2018

Superhero comics are rarely this fun and entertaining. Issue #3 is the best so far and probably just as fun or more fun than the previous issue.

Cosmic Ghost Rider #4

Oct 6, 2018

Cosmic Ghost Rider #4 takes a step back comedically and a step forward narratively. With one more issue left, this is still a must-read series.

Cosmic Ghost Rider #5

Nov 16, 2018

Cosmic Ghost Rider #5 wraps up this phenomenal miniseries with heart instead of comedy. It is a safe ending to the series.

Die #1

Dec 6, 2018

Die #1 is a surprise masterpiece that demands your attention. This is one of 2018's best comic issues.

DIE!DIE!DIE! #1

Jul 13, 2018

It might be cheesy and it might be bloody, and that might be your thing. Die!Die!Die! #1 has potential, but we just won't know until the next issue where the story actually begins.

DIE!DIE!DIE! #2

Aug 24, 2018

Kirkman and the creative staff deliver exactly what I was hoping for after Issue #1. This is a relentless action-fest and highly recommended.

DIE!DIE!DIE! #3

Die!Die!Die! #3 gives the readers more of they want while moving the story and the characters along almost perfectly. Very highly recommended.

DIE!DIE!DIE! #4

Oct 26, 2018

Die!Die!Die! #4 delivers just like the last few have. More action, more espionage, and a ridiculous thing called "The Brown Trigger."

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #1

Jul 5, 2018

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark could have been a nothing comic, but instead the team pulls it off and makes something that people can, pardon the pun, sink their teeth into.

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #2

Sep 11, 2018

Issue #2 continues the comedy with our favorite Mistress of Horror, but this time she finds herself with Edgar Allen Poe.

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #3

Nov 9, 2018

Elvira: Mistress of the Dark #3 is keeping with the series charm and toning down Elvira just a little and making for a better comic.

Gideon Falls #5

Jul 17, 2018

The creative team behind Old Man Logan is going all out on a horror comic that is proving to be quite gripping. Issue #5 is leading us into the arc's finale and is just as great an issue as we have had so far in this series.

Gideon Falls #6

Aug 14, 2018

A disappointing close to the first story arc. Sorrentino delivers on the art as always, but the contents of the Black Barn were lackluster.

Gideon Falls #7

Oct 17, 2018

Gideon Falls #7 is the first of the second story arc and it does a great job of setting up this volume with the characters running into new obstacles.

Gideon Falls #8

Nov 12, 2018

Gideon Falls #8 is fitting more pieces of the puzzle together and reeling in the reader. The final page suggests the two worlds are close to colliding

Issue #5 shows promise for this anthology series and comes closer than others have to reaching the mark set by Issue #1

Ice Cream Man #7

Sep 18, 2018

The Ice Cream Man rollercoaster takes another turn down. This time the horror element feels shoehorned in, and the story would have been better without it.

Ice Cream Man #8

Oct 31, 2018

Ice Cream Man #8 is a mess story-wise and is stretching the definition of "anthology," but at least the art is on-point as always.

Isola #4

Isola is an amazing comic book that mustn't be slept on. Issue #4 is one we have been waiting for since we first opened the premier issue.

Isola #5

The end of the first arc doesn't quite hit the mark, but the arc in its entirety is nothing short of stellar.

Jeepers Creepers #3

Jul 4, 2018

So far, the Jeepers Creepers license is being put to waste in more than one medium. Dynamite's comic series is no exception.

Jeepers Creepers #4

This series is a mess. This issue is a mess. Unless a miracle turns this around, I don't see Jeepers Creepers becoming worthy of your money or time.

Jeepers Creepers #5

Sep 20, 2018

Jeepers Creepers #5 suffers from the same tired storyline and with this being a showdown issue with our hero and villain, it carries no wait.

Jughead: The Hunger (2017) #7

Aug 21, 2018

I don't want this series to end. It's been an entertaining ride so far, and this issue shows us that one battle is over, but there are more coming. If you like Archie, and even if you don't, Jughead: The Hunger is worth your time. Issue #7 shows no drop in quality at all.

Jughead: The Hunger (2017) #8

Aug 24, 2018

All and all this is wasted issue that goes nowhere and is all background story. If you skip this issue and pick up #9, you won't be lost.

Justice League Dark (2018) #3

Issue #3 has just set the bar high for the series. If it can continue at this level, then DC will have a lot happy fans out there. This receives my highest recommendation.

Beware that you need to read Wonder Woman and Justice League Dark: The Witching Hour #1 in order to be caught up to the beginning of this issue. Otherwise, I recommend.

Oblivion Song #5

Jul 12, 2018

Robert Kirkman is doing what he does best and telling us a good story. Issue #5 is peeling back more of the story and finally giving us the "reunion" it has been leading up to.

Oblivion Song #9

Nov 22, 2018

Oblivion Song #9 is a heist, but it is hard to ignore the untapped potential of what the heist could have been. Instead, we get a very straightforward theft with little to no conflict.

The Cape: The Fallen #2

Jul 26, 2018

Issue #1 wasn't very hard to beat since it was already lackluster and didn't paint a hopeful series ahead. Luckily, this issue picks things up (literally) and sets them in motion while giving us those old-school The Cape feels.
