Aliens: Resistance #1

Jan 24, 2019

Overall this is a mediocre issue from some extremely talented creators. The first issue in a four-part limited series should grab the reader's attention, define the story and the characters within it, and move the story forward in a way that is compelling and builds anticipation by the end of the issue for the next ones to come. Unfortunately this first installment does little to none of that.

Big Trouble In Little China: Old Man Jack #3

Nov 22, 2017

This comic is definitely a more wacky cartoonish take on Jack Burton and the world of Big Trouble in Little China. For that reason it's entertaining and very colorful both in its artwork and its characters. The stylization of it may not be for everyone but it is worth checking out.
