    Comics: The Gathering - Jason Laframboise Jul 26, 2017

    I'm impressed with this one overall. I wasn't sure what to expect with this revival but I loved it and that makes me really happy. The worst thing is when a golden age character is revived and we get a crappy effort that is only trying to live off a name, but that is not the case here. It's an updating that brings the character into the 21st century and is actually a fun and engaging read. Very well done, and highly recommended. Read Full Review

    The Pop Break - Rachel Freeman Jul 27, 2017

    Ok, I had to dock a little bit because there is one thing in the comic that bothers me"What's with the little boy's photo on the bridge? I mean, it's clearly a place where this child died, but we see it several times so it's obviously relevant. But why? There's no overheard radio or tv news story about it, no one mentions it. It's just this picture of this little boy. On a bridge. With flowers and candles. Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Jessica Brake Aug 6, 2017

    I read this with a completely blank open mind but so many parts of it called to me. My love for the paranormal and living in a Spanish speaking area, caused me to think of La Llorona. If that's the inspo behind this, I love it because it's about time that the weeping woman was given a story where she is a hero rather than a victim or a villian. The second theme in this that spoke to me was Paz's love and care for her sisters. In my personal life, my mother has Multiple Sclerosis so I have spent several years helping raise my 17 year old sister. Paz's panic and ruthless disregard for her safety when accusing gang members of taking her sister is something I absolutey identify with. The art itself is breathtakingly beautiful and compliments the story so well. This is definitely one book you can judge by it's cover. I'm rooting for Paz. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Arpad Okay Jul 27, 2017

    Fantomah in 2017 is no superhero comic. Nor is it a straight horror title. What awaits you in this read is the origin story of a dark avenger, a mystery that begs to be explored. Read Full Review
