Alienated #1

The kind of comic where you come for the story, but end up staying for the art.

Belle (2020): Ghosts & Goblins #1

Sep 5, 2020

Belle: Ghosts and Goblins is a very fun read. There's a lot of action and the whole thing centers on a strong and independent female protagonist. This one-shot is a great introduction to Belle for those who've never read any comics featuring her character. On the other side of the coin, this issue is an awesome next chapter for those who have been following Belle's adventures for some time.

Harley Quinn (2016) #70

If you're one of those people who's tired of Harley Quinn, I suggest you pick up her solo title.

Killing Red Sonja #1

Mar 22, 2020

We've all heard the proverb, "If a man starts a journey of revenge, he should first dig two graves." When the target of your revenge is Red Sonja, you probably just need to dig a grave for yourself. Though who knows? Maybe young Prince Cyril will surprise us all? He's young and it will be interesting to see his journey from crown prince to emperor to potential avenger. With Killing Red Sonja #1, Russell and Ingman begin a new chapter in the Red Sonja mythos. This strong first issue has a lot of potential to be a thrilling sword and sorcery tale.

Leap M #1

Aug 26, 2020

Leap M has everything I want out of a crime story. Action that gets your adrenaline pumping, high stakes that deliver palpable tension, and a conclusion that produces an emotional response. I must confess that I'm not usually the biggest fan of the comics Action Lab puts out. However, Leap M has truly converted me. From the writing to the page layouts to the art, this one-shot is a prime example of quality comic book storytelling.

Napoleon Dynamite (2019): Valentine's Day Special #1

Feb 11, 2020

It's fun to see the characters from the movie appear in a comic book, but both the story and the artwork leave a lot to be desired.

Offworld Sci-Fi Double Feature #1

Jul 9, 2020

Offworld #1 is a really great first issue. It sets up two unique Sci-Fi mini-series, each with its own merits. Interstellar Dust is quirky and features a diverse group of both human and alien characters. Hazel is a thrilling action story starring a squad of tough women on a futuristic S.W.A.T. team. Each first chapter came to an abrupt end, but each left me excited to see where the story goes from here. For some out of the world science-fiction fun, check out Offworld #1.

Slaughterhouse-Five OGN

Sep 19, 2020

This graphic novel presentation of Slaughterhouse-Five is a great adaptation, but not necessarily a one-hundred percent faithful one. The story and most of the dialogue and text are purely Vonnegut. Unfortunately, North's artistic liberties and literary additions don't add to the quality of the story.
