This issue has a lot of narrative potential, but it suffers from a feeling of inadequate execution. Though the artwork also has some cons, the mostly beautiful visuals prop up an otherwise indistinct story.

Diablo House #1

Mar 13, 2017

Diablo House #1 is a strong start for the title. The host character and the concept behind the series show great promise, with the potential for a large variety of horror tales yet to come. The writing, line art, and colors all work in tandem with one another to fully realize ideas into well-executed realities. If you're a horror fan, or even just a fan of character-driven dramas, this book is well worth your time.

The Pervert #1

Apr 24, 2018

'The Pervert' is great. It tackles hardships sincerely and emotively without ever fetishizing sadness, and its unique art style helps set it apart from the pack.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015) #18

Mar 7, 2017

Overall, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #18 is a good time. It's just not as good of a time as the issue before it. Knowing North and Henderson though, it won't be long before this series reaches its usual heights again.

While this issue isn't one of the series' best, it is still a good time. North and Henderson deliver campy fun as always.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl (2015) #24

Sep 13, 2017

This issue has plenty of good moments, but they're counteracted by inconsistent artwork and a plot that barely moves. Overall, it's one of the series' lower points.

Underwinter: Queen of Spirits #1

Nov 27, 2018

Great artwork and lettering elevate an underdeveloped story with forgettable characters. This is an intriguing read, but also a frustrating one.

Underwinter #1

Mar 21, 2017

This is likely to be among the best debut issues of the year. One need not get any further than the first page to realize that this series is going to be something special.

Underwinter #4

Jun 26, 2017

Underwinter #4 is a turning-point where the series' slow build-up pays off with a beautifully illustrated dive into horror.

Underwinter #5

Jul 24, 2017

From beautifully textured art to succinct explorations of each character's inner demons, Underwinter #5 is a penultimate issue that perfectly sets the stage for the upcoming finale.

Underwinter #6

Aug 21, 2017

Underwinter #6 is a disappointing ending that neither ties up loose ends nor makes an emotional impact. The amazing artwork isn't enough to make up for the overwritten yet underdeveloped plot.

Underwinter: A Field of Feathers #1

Oct 24, 2017

Stellar art and a sense of mysterious dread make this issue one to check out, as long as you don't mind slow-buildups.

Underwinter: A Field of Feathers #3

Dec 26, 2017

This issue shows signs of the greatness that endured over most of Underwinter's first volume. Unfortunately, those signs are bogged down by severe clarity issues and a recap page that provides information that would have been much more effective if presented in the actual story. As is, it feels like a cop-out that cheapens the whole narrative.

Though fun, this issue fails to live up to its full potential. With that said, the ambitious narrative structure are deep cut jokes continue to impress.

You Are Deadpool #3

May 16, 2018

This issue is chock full of obscure references and fun twists that'll keep you engaged regardless of whether or not you're a Deadpool fan. This is Wade Wilson at his wittiest.

Bland art, a rushed ending, and few available story choices make this an adventure you'd be better off choosing not to buy.
