Billionaire Island #2

Jul 1, 2020

Billionaire Island #2 succeeds not just as an amazing humor comic by an all-star team but as a wonderful continuation of everything the first issue sets up. Spend whatever you need to to pick up your copy and then regret having to live in a society with money after you read it. But hey, at least you have a copy of this outstanding comic.

Billionaire Island #6

Sep 15, 2020

Billionaire Island #6 is a gut punch of an ending. It is equal parts hilarious and tragic. This is the late-stage capitalism satire we need right now, even if it isnt the one we want.

Jun 10, 2020

Decorum #2 is a comic made by a group of brilliant creative minds all at the top of their game. To not read this is to miss out on one of the best comics out right now. Abandon whatever you are doing while reading this so you can go out and buy it.

Faithless: II #1

Jun 9, 2020

Faithless II #1, while still a good comic, is a bit of let down. The first volume was so strong that even this solid output feels like a real missed opportunity. While I will still keep following this series, I cant shake the feeling this couldve been better.

Finger Guns #4

Aug 5, 2020

Finger Guns #4 is an occasionally great comic that tries just a little too hard to fit in with what the indie market looks like today. It truly sings it when it stands out, though, and I hope it leans more into it as the story progresses.

Power Pack (2020) #1

Nov 30, 2020

If you've been following 'Outlawed,' this is a must read. If you haven't been following, this is a must read. Regardless of if you are a child or an adult or one of those man-children that exists only in Judd Apatow movies, this is still a must read. It's cute and cuddly while still packing one hell of a right hook.
