Above Snakes #2

Aug 17, 2022

Above Snakes #2 is a brilliant follow-up to the action-packed first issue. Taking a step back from the action to focus on the characters, this issue keeps the story moving forward in a delightfully unexpected way.

Amazing Spider-Man (2022) #8

Aug 24, 2022

Final ThoughtsAn okay issue that serves to get Peter into place for the next arc as he upgrades his gear with some help from Norman Osborn. There's definitely no way this could go wrong, right?

Amazing Spider-Man (2022) #11

Oct 13, 2022

The Amazing Spider-Man #11 is a good issue but nothing overly special. It was great seeing the interplay of the different characters and the appearance of Kamala Khan was fantastic but other than the scene with Black Cat, it didn't feel like anything groundbreaking.

Damn Them All (2022) #1

Oct 26, 2022

Damn Them All #1 is a slow read, but worth seeing through to the end. With a thoroughly entertaining lead character and interesting look at the occult, this is a story definitely worth investing in.

Flawed (2022) #1

Sep 28, 2022

The ArtThe art of Flawed #1 is great.  Prenzy, doing both linework and colors, brings life to Brown's world.  The curved linework gives a softness to the issue that was unexpected but worked.  Some of the artwork can be slightly gory, but with a book like this, that's not an issue and helps to convey just how frustrated Dr. Ezz feels about the state of her city.

Gold Goblin (2022) #1

Nov 16, 2022

Final ThoughtsA great tie-in to the main Amazing Spider-Man series, Gold Goblin gives readers a chance to see how Norman Osborn has changed since his “cleansing” at the hands of the Sin Eater. A good first issue that promises a character-driven story ready to dive into the guilt and sins of the Green Goblin as he searches for redemption under the new moniker, Gold Goblin!

Gospel (2022) #1

Nov 9, 2022

A fun look into a period of unrest and the power of story. Set against a backdrop of the English Reformation, Gospel #1 introduces an intriguing cast of characters, led by troublemaker Matilde and Pitt the bard. And if that weren't enough, Morris introduces a mystery of how it's tied to the present.

Hollow (2022) OGN

Sep 28, 2022

Hollow is a fun graphic novel. An easy read, it hits all the right notes and only falters in that it was over too quickly.

I Hate This Place #5

Sep 28, 2022

The ArtArtyom Topilin and Lee Loughridge have been a tremendous team all throughout I Hate This Place and this issue is no exception.  The harsh lines of Topilin reinforce the tension and dangers of the farm and surrounding environs.  As always, the linework has excelled through action and this issue has many opportunities for Topilin to show off.  The colors by Loughridge pair especially well with this issue.  There are multiple panels where the colors are used to highlight the characters, lend a sense of urgency to the art, and emphasize the Starks' story.

Metal Society #5

Sep 7, 2022

Metal Society #5 is the perfect ending to an entertaining mini-series. It gives readers a satisfying conclusion and finally lets them see the hyped fight between Rosa & Wol to determine who will reign supreme, Humans or Robots.

Neverlanders (2022) OGN

Aug 31, 2022

With the consistency of the art throughout Neverlanders, readers may be surprised to realize that Sommariva is partnered with three different colorists throughout the book.  Each colorist adds tremendous talent that takes the art to the next level.  With each new setting comes a new color palette.  The cool greys and blues of a city subway station give way to a warmer, cozy feel as we see the characters junkyard home.  And all that's before being blasted off to the lush, vibrant greens of Neverland and the dark, ominous, and imposing colors of the pirates' floating city.

Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #1

Nov 23, 2022

On the final two pages, Dragotta's linework shifts away from the soft lines and edges of Tefenkgi and leans hard into sharp and angular.  Instantly, the tone and feel of the book changes, the stakes feel much higher than they did before.  Gone is the innocence present in the rest of the story.  Renzi's color choices follow this same pattern.  Where Loughridge's colors were muted, Renzi's are highly saturated, feeling as if they'll bleed right off the page.  It will be interesting to see how the coming issues will handle the artwork and which style it leans into more.

Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse (2022) #5

Aug 24, 2022

Final ThoughtsA predictable ending lends itself to an enjoyable, but lackluster finish to the series. Overall, it was a fun and interesting look into the Gwen Stacy of Earth-65 and how she views herself.

The Dead Lucky #2

Sep 7, 2022

Let's just say, this recipe is well worth the time that it took to make.  It was absolutely delicious and well worth the time that it took to make.  Though I made minor modifications to the recipe to account for availability of ingredients and personal spicy-ness preferences, I feel that it was as accurate a representation as I could manage.  I would definitely give this recipe a 5/5 and it will be making its way into my regular meal rotation.
