Bloodborne #11

Apr 14, 2019

Bloodborne #11 is a gorgeous piece of comic magic, equally mesmerizing as it is horrific. While it doesn't stand alone as a single issue, it serves as a cornerstone for understanding what has come before. What comes after, only the Old Blood knows.

Ghost Tree #1

Apr 24, 2019

With a single issue,Ghost Tree #1 has drawn me in more than some comics manage to do in entire volumes. Grounded in Japanese folklore and emotion honesty, it sets up a story that moves with the gentle rhythm of a summer breeze.

Gogor #1

Apr 13, 2019

Of course, this is just the first issue of Gogor. From what I can tell, Garing hopes to spin this story into a Fantasy Epic. Having a setting too complex to explain in a single issue is the sort of problem you kind of want to have with Epic stories. While much of its setting and players remain unclear by issue's end, Garing delivers more than enough to keep us reading. We're sure to learn a whole lot more about Altara, Amarno,and the eponymous Gogoras the series continues.

The Avant-Guards #1

Jan 24, 2019

We don't see a lot of the other Avant-Guards, but I get the feeling they'll have a much bigger impact in future issues. Just where this comic will go I don't know for sure. With sports, you never can. What I do know is The Avant-Guards #1 is sure to be a delightful journey into the world of friendship, art, and basketball.

The Avant-Guards #2

Mar 1, 2019

Another highlight of The Avant-Guards #2 is Noah Hayes and Rebecca Nalty's evolving style. The book has a millennial pop sensibility. It's full of bright colors, creative backgrounds and wildly expressive faces and body types. It's an inviting style that really fits nicely with the books breezy tone.

The Wrath of Fantomas #1

Feb 11, 2019

What strikes me most about The Wrath of Fantmasis just how well it works in the comic medium. For a character over a century old Bocque and Rocheleau certainly madeFantmas feel right at home on the comic page. His heinous crimes are lifted directly from the novels and woven into an original tale. The result is a cross-cultural mishmash of old school pulp and modern sensibility. In a time where superheroes and true crime dominate to pop culture landscape, Fantmas just makes sense.But for all the gold of Paris, you're not going to want to put this book down. The Wrath ofFantmasis a blast from the past that you don't want to miss.
