Everyday Hero: Machine Boy OGN

Sep 7, 2022

Strangely nostalgic and amusingly quirky, familiar themes of adolescence are explored through the eyes of a lovable alien robot in an eccentric world of domed cities and anthropomorphic animals.

Forever Forward (2022) #1

Aug 1, 2022

Zack Kaplan's and Arjuna Susini's Forever Forward #1 is a fairly standard time-travel story with a good concept that fails to live up to its potential.

Hendrix: Electric Requiem OGN

May 23, 2022

A few times, 'Hendrix: Electric Requiem' shows how a graphic novel could be the perfect medium for a Jimi Hendrix biography. Unfortunately, most of the book doesn't come close to reaching the level of originality and imagination required to adequately inspire the reader. In the end, we end up with an average biography of one of the greatest rock stars of all time.

Mindset #1

Jun 13, 2022

The central concept of the sci-fi thriller, 'Mindset,' from writer Zack Kaplan encapsulates our modern, smartphone-driven culture so well. John J. Pearson's great art and Otsmane-Elhaou's amazing lettering add layers of depth and intrigue to the thought-provoking examination of what outside factors influence our free will.

Mindset #2

Aug 4, 2022

'Mindset' #2 gives us more of what made the first issue great. Zack Kaplan, John J. Pearson and Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou continue a fascinating multi-layered exploration of free-will and control based on a mind-controlling app.

Mindset #3

Sep 14, 2022

Although 'Mindset' #3 isn't quite as strong as the outstanding first issues, it's still a great continuation to an already fantastic series. It starts slow but is saved by a tense and exciting second half.

Oz #2

Apr 18, 2022

Whether you should pick up a copy of The O.Z. #2 probably depends on how much you are willing to pay for it, because these kinds of crowdfunded comics often come with a heftier price-tag than a normal double-sized issue. Apart from that, I would definitely recommend this story and the creators are worthy of support. Let yourself get lost in this war-torn fantasy which will remind you just enough of the land of Oz you know, while taking you on an action/adventure you never would've expected.

Way of X (2021) #3

Jun 23, 2021

Way of X #3 presents a complex, thought-provoking discourse on sex and reproduction. Through characters of wonderful depth and complexity, the issue gains heart and compassion. Maybe the best of the great 'Way of X' series so far.
