Afterlife With Archie #8

May 6, 2015

Overall, this issue is a real treat for horror fans. It certainly takes Archie in a director quite different from what I saw in grocery store checkout lines back in the day. I also think this is an easy issue for anyone to pick up. There's enough backstory mentioned for anyone to get the gist of it while not being repetitive to established fans. Definitely recommend!

Fathom: Kiani Vol. 4 #3

Apr 25, 2015

As for Vince Hernandez's story, I find myself enjoying it. There is tension between Kiani, clearly the older and slightly jaded sister, and Anika, the younger and hot-headed one. I think theirs is a relationship many can relate to. The idea of humanity balking at a more powerful humanoid presence certainly isn't a new one. However, I like the global scale this story takes place on. Oftentimes, stories take place in one central location. In this case, we jump several thousand miles and back. It keeps things fresh, but does not jump around so much as to confuse the reader.

Lola XOXO: Wasteland Madam #2

May 29, 2015

Overall, I'm sad to say that I would not recommend this series. The art team is excellent, but the story offers nothing new and I truly think readers deserve much better. The subject of women in comics is a very heated one right now and I wish this story showed more concern for that.

Lumberjanes #14

May 20, 2015

Overall, a really great issue. I cannot recommend this series highly enough. There's something for everyone and I really hope all will give this series a chance. If you haven't hopped on the Lumberjanes train yet, a new arc is the perfect time to check it out. It will not disappoint!

Mayday #1

May 6, 2015

In today's market where comics are pushing themselves to reach a wider audience, I think any reader will find a better option on the shelf than this. The issue circles back on itself in an attempt to reach some sort of conclusion while also leading into the rest of the series, but I found it entirely too forced. In short, thumbs down.
