A Game of Thrones #23

Dec 17, 2014

A flat and uninteresting take on a well loved story that fails to add anything new that leads readers to ask what market it is meant to appeal to.

Bob's Burgers (2015) #7

Jan 6, 2016

While the individual stories in Bob's Burgers #7 are by no means awful when collected together none of them stand out to make this issue particularly memorable

Cognetic #1

Oct 21, 2015

Cognetic #1 is a strong opening comic for this three part series which gives us another look at the end of the world

Cognetic #2

Nov 17, 2015

Cognetic #2 delivers a fast paced -almost rushed- installment of this engaging story, the writing and illustrations are great but you are left feeling you could do with a couple more pages.

Curb Stomp #1

Feb 24, 2015

Curb Stomp #1 is a well crafted story that sets up this miniseries with fast pace, easy dialogue, and an art style that complements the overall tone well.

Curb Stomp #2

Mar 26, 2015

Curb Stomp #2 continues to weave recognisable plot beats together to reasonable effect, while the art might not be to everyone's taste the colouring kicks it up a notch

Curb Stomp #3

Apr 21, 2015

Curb Stomp #3 marks a clear turning point for this miniseries, sadly with its multiple dangling plots and decreasing quality of art it is not for the better.

Fiction Squad #3

Dec 3, 2014

A fun story crammed full of puns and jokes that is for the most part complemented well with the art; as long as the characters drawn aren't young females. Avoid if you are not a fan of puns.

Fiction Squad #4

Jan 7, 2015

Fiction Squad #4 feels like a slight misstep in the overall series as the constant barrage of jokes and puns threaten to overwhelm the actual story

Hexed (2014) #5

Dec 10, 2014

Hexed #5 continues the intriguing tale of Lucifer & co as they deal with the fallout of the first arc. The story and art are on point but the dialogue isn't always to the same high caliber.

Memetic #3

Dec 24, 2014

Memetic #3 provides a strong end to this miniseries that -while bleak- is a fitting finale to this dark tale, all of which is aided hugely by great artwork.

Munchkin #1

Jan 27, 2015

A rather meagre output with little to entice new players of Munchkin while not managing to offer existing fans.

Munchkin #7

Jul 29, 2015

Munchkin #7 manages to be both unfunny and unremarkable, this should reflect much more on the core concept of the original game. Sadly it seems that Munchkin is using comics as a quick cash grab than as a medium to create backstory to a rather one dimensional boardgame

Over The Garden Wall #2

Sep 25, 2015

Over the Garden Wall #2 feels like it is driven by an underbaked idea that struggles to drive the story. With a tone that is unlike the source material this comic never really delivers.

Plunder #3

Apr 28, 2015

Plunder #3 unravels much of the close, tight-knit tension that the previous issues had cultivated; a problem compounded by occasionally confusing art.

Plunder #4
