Fearscape #1

Sep 3, 2018

THE FEARSCAPE is off to an amazing start. Henry Henry considers his literary authority better than everyone else, although he isn't that great. O'Sullivan perfectly illustrates who Henry Henry is, and sets us up for a hero's journey with the wrong hero. Mutti and Popov's art gives us reality, while O'Sullivan's words give us Henry's delusions. While I'd like to know more about the supporting characters, the story is set up to succeed.

Friendo #5

Mar 27, 2019

Leo and Jerry make their way to the desert to find Action Joe. Mangled and bloody, the pair don't bother to stop at the hospital to tend to Leo's wounds. Meanwhile, Zajek the Cremator learns they're still alive and his job isn't finished. Alex Paknadel gives us an ending that is humorous, horrifying, but also self-reflecting. Topped with art by Martin Simmonds and Dee Cunniffe, and Taylor Esposito's lettering, and we have a story about this day-and-age!

Halloween Man: Hallowtide #1

Oct 22, 2018

HALLOWEEN MAN: HALLOWTIDE Part 1 is the start to an awesome two part story. Drew Edwards brings us a fully rounded and involved version of Halloween that is sure to compel you to keep reading. Lucho Inzunza and April Guadiana's art compliments and furthers his story by building tension and keeping us on edge. Although I wish I knew more about other characters, this story arc is sure to give you the Halloween chills.

Jaded #1

Jul 30, 2018

The superhero trope has always been framed as good vs. evil. But JADED by Jon Santana, Jimbo Salgado, Jomar Bulda, and Bunny Pasig plays with this overdone trope. Although some parts of the story get a little confusing because time jumps around, the overall story is compelling and interesting to follow. Paired with amazing art, this is a comic you won't want to miss.

Prism Stalker #3

May 9, 2018

PRISM STALKER #3 gives us a Vep that is not willing to give up. Although sometimes the world building seems to drag on, it's absolutely necessary for the adventure Sloane Leong is going to drop us into. The world is absolutely stunning to look at, giving us colors beyond our wildest imagination. This is definitely a story and issue that you need to pick up.

These Savage Shores #3

Jan 21, 2019

The Khan is dead. War is right around the corner. But something doesn't seem right. Ram V continues to unweave his tale masterfully, giving us more about who the characters are. Sumit Kumar and Vittorio Astone do a phenomenal job with using the art to keep us on our toes. All this is topped off with lettering by Aditya Bidikar, who brings perfectly placed and lined letters.

Void Trip #1

The art of Ryan O'Sullivan and Plaid Klaus' VOID TRIP #1 is absolutely phenomenal. Although at times the characters feel a little clich, they do not feel overdone or out of place. The story is a fun and funny adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
