Action Comics (2016) #1021

Mar 25, 2020

ACTION COMICS #1021 is a well-written and well-paced skirmish between the super teams. The coloring takes top marks, but you may be lost if you haven't read the prior issue(s). This is a take or leave it recommendation.

Game of Thrones: Clash of Kings: Vol. 2 #3

Mar 18, 2020

CLASH OF KINGS, VOL. 2, #3 stays true to the source material and is a must-read for any Game of Thrones fans. However, don't pick this up if you haven't read the previous issues first or don't know the source material.

Giant-Size X-Men (2020): Nightcrawler #1

Apr 3, 2020

GIANT-SIZE X-MEN NIGHTCRAWLER takes the reader on Hickman's version of a mutant ghost story. The art is strong, but the story is bland. This book is best for hardcore X-Men fans that don't mind the "Giant-Size" price tag.

James Bond (2019) #4

Mar 11, 2020

JAMES BOND #4 is a solid story about our favorite super spy tracking down terrorists who use the art world as a cover operation.. The story is enjoyable enough but hindered but several minor and a couple of major structural stumbles.

Mar 21, 2020

JUDGE DREDD FALSE WITNESS #1 takes a current year issue and brings into the 22nd century without being too heavy-handed.

Killing Red Sonja #1

Mar 18, 2020

KILLING RED SONJA #1 tricks you into thinking you're going to read a Red Sonja adventure before convincing you to stay for a bizarre (and bloody) fairy tale. It's unique and interesting. We recommend picking it up.

Marvels Snapshot (2020): Fantastic Four #1

Mar 29, 2020

MARVELS SNAPSHOTS FANTASTIC FOUR is a novel story with an interesting, surprise twist at the end. Unfortunately, the story is almost 10 pages too long, and the artwork is sub par. Definitely not worth the $5 price, and should be given out for free as a digital strip on Marvel's website or as a supplement on Free Comic Book Day.

Nancy Drew & The Hardy Boys: The Death of Nancy Drew #1

Mar 25, 2020

DEATH OF NANCY DREW #1 gives the reader a taste of classic detective mystery in a modern setting. The story is well written, and both the coloring and lettering compliment the story well. With a few tweaks to the shadows in the artwork, this is set to be a top-notch detective story.

Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica #10

Mar 18, 2020

RED SONJA & VAMPIRELLA MEET BETTY & VERONICA #10 is a fun and "out there" issue. It lays the groundwork and motivation for a potential battle between Earth and Drakulon with high stakes (no pun intended).

RED SONJA #14 cleverly sets up Queen Sonja to face the problems of ruling a kingdom that can't be fixed with a sword.

Red Sonja (2019) #15

May 20, 2020

RED SONJA #15, available from Dynamite on May 20, keeps the reader interested in the crimson-haired warrior as she struggles with problems that can't be solved with a sword. The story is engaging, the art team turned out top-notch work, and I'm on board to see what happens next in this volume.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #1

Mar 14, 2020

STAR WARS: Bounty Hunters #1 is a perfect tie-in to The Empire Strikes Back that pairs well with The Mandalorian. I highly recommended this book for any Star Wars fan.

Star Wars: Bounty Hunters #2

Mar 29, 2020

STAR WARS BOUNTY HUNTERS #2 is a solid entry in this story arc. The pages are action-packed and each bounty hunter gets to show off their skillsets.

Starship Down #1

Mar 18, 2020

STARSHIP DOWN #1 uses a classic SciFi setup to begin its story. There's potential if Giampaoli can introduce something fresh in the next issue, but not much to get excited about so far.

The Lost Carnival: A Dick Grayson Graphic Novel OGN

Apr 19, 2020

THE LOST CARNIVAL is an almost perfect example of the type of YA novels the comics publishers should be putting out.

Vengeance of Vampirella #6

Mar 5, 2020

VENGEANCE OF VAMPIRELLA #6 has a fun story and a superb cover, but the clunky writing and inconsistent art put a damper on the fun. Recommend picking up only if you're a Vampirella completest.

Vengeance of Vampirella #7

May 20, 2020

VENGEANCE OF VAMPIRELLA #7, available from Dynamite on May 27, is a strong continuation of the resurrection story. The writing is solid and the art is significantly better than the previous issue. Vampirella fans should pick this up.

Mar 2, 2020
