Has anyone who has ever played video games not wanted to somehow jump in that game and make it your reality? I know I have. That's why I love the anime Fantasy Star Online, the show Video Game High School, and the novel Soda Pop Soldier (my review). Being able to somehow jump into the game, or make the games appear to be more of a reality, would be beyond awesome! I'm more

I’m torn with what to do. On one hand, this comic is almost a perfect example of what it entails to create a compelling plot; to have readers at the store picking up the next issue the day of its release! One the other hand, this comic is almost a perfect example of how you don’t want to tell a story; how you can make readers hesitate with wether or not to continue w more

Apparently, Switch was originally being created as a fan project on DevianArt, but was then picked up to be a series. (Impressive, right?) This series actually takes place in the Top Cow universe of Witchblade (and The Darkness, Artifacts, and Angelus). Yet, if I hadn't been told me that, I never would have known. Did not feel lost once......

I first heard about this series at the end of last year, and since then, it has been my most anticipated new series of the 2015 year! All I had to go off of was the name of the comic and its cover art: a fun, light-hearted cartoon style and coloring, but with a sinister smiling little girl, who has a bloody double-edged axe and bomb in hand, and is with a group of frigh more

And so this brings us to the end of Starve season one. While this wasn’t the most action-packed or tension-filled issued, one thing it did have was plot twists. Multiple jaw dropping plot twists!.....

Reminiscent of a classic horror story!...

This was a SOLID debut issue. I wouldn't say anything scary happens, but there are many a nervous moments, the multiple plot lines did an excellent job of building up the suspense for moments to scare me later, and I hooked on try to figure out how all this is connected...

The second issue was a mix for me. Somethings I felt were greatly improved - like Gavin's characters and the plot - while some other things I felt fell off - like other characters, panel selection, and the plot, again... What this issue does focus on and choose to advance, it does so excellently. Gavin's character is so badass, and I love how Brain Wood is using Starve to more

I think this series has the makings to be something unique and great. This debute issue wasn't as strong as I felt it could have been - not the most original with the way the plot is unraveling, but the content matter is very original, and really believe that this cyberpunk-martial art story is going to take off next issue. I will undoubtably be picking up issue #2 more
