Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, Jughead Jones swears veng...

It's always a gamble to read a book that reboots or re-imagines a classic character but in this case it works!

Sabrina makes her debut in the New Riverdale and things are about to get insane! Pop Tate's has a new mascot: it's a lady in a burger costume with a giant burger for a head!  And she never takes off that giant burger head!  And she and Jughead really hit it off, probably for that very reason!

For those Edgar Rice Burroughs fans, this book is a beautiful mash up of John Carter and, well, big foot. I wish the emphasis had been more on Bigfoot, but it is still a very enjoyable read!

Bigfoot: Sword of the Earthman #1

By: Josh S. Henaman, Andy Taylor
Released: Dec 2, 2015

The epic saga begins! High adventure on a distant planet of dinosaurs, warlords, kingdoms and sorcery, where Earth's legendary Bigfoot finds himself in a battle to defeat the ruthless emperor of a barbarian planet! The dying planet needed a hero... what they got was a sasquatch!

Boom has a long and glorious history of, ahem, "paying homage" to other people's works. When "The Martian" came out, Boom has a series about stranded astronauts on Venus. At least they changed the planet... Now here's a book that gets to ride the coattails of the old TV show Brimstone and any other period show they can think of (in this issue it's Deadwood). It's not worth your time and if you'r more

Lucas Stand #3

By: Kurt Sutter, Jesus Hervas

How in the world did they make a slow paced, unfunny Rick and Morty book?!?!? Issue 1 had promise but issue 2 does not deliver. The jokes, if you can call them that, appear to benothing more than drawing people with starry eyes. This book is not anywhere near as funny as the show and given how devoid of humor it is, I can only guess that trying to be funny was not even one of their goals.

Rick and Morty: Lil' Poopy Superstar #2

Mr. Poopybutthole lets Summer Smith in on an industry secret: that being a huge TV and movie star isn't what it's cracked up to be!

Frank Cho should stick to what he does well- and that isn't writing. The art is pretty standard Cho fare but the writing is so sub par that you'd think a grade school student wrote it after reading "James Bond for Dummies". Skip this unless you have to have all of Frank Cho's work. Even then, you might want to reconsider.

Skybourne #1

By: Frank Cho
Released: Sep 7, 2016

* A new, original series from celebrated creator Frank Cho (Totally Awesome Hulk, Savage Wolverine)!
* Full of fast-paced action, Skybourne is James Bond with fantasy elements thrown in and is unlike anything Frank Cho has ever done before.
* The legend of King Arthur is alive and well in modern day. Only one man, Skybourne, can stop the ...

I really couldn't get into this series. The premise is strong but the execution is kind of weak. Kind of a shame when you see who's involved.

Superzero #1

By: Amanda Conner, Rafael de Latorre
Released: Dec 16, 2015

With great power comes a bit of insanity, anxiety, and a dash of social alienation! Have you ever fantasized about being a super hero? Well Dru Dragowski does; that's all this nineteen-year-old, comic book obsessed, high school senior thinks about. She needs to escape the normalcy of suburban life! Her plan? To become a real-life superhero by recre...

This is a pretty ham-fisted attempt at being topical. The subject (transgender issues) deserves a better story. Unlike the way that Zootopia addresses racial profiling and racism, Alters doesn't make you think or care for otherwise completely sympathetic characters.

Alters #1

By: Paul Jenkins, Leila Leiz
Released: Sep 7, 2016

From a diverse team of creators composed of differing genders, gender identities, ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations comes a groundbreaking new series featuring the world's first transgender superhero!

This issue really gave the spotlight to the supporting characters and it was fun to see them doing their thing. Tammy is surprisingly brutal and Juergen steps up his game all in pursuit of the process server industry's version of the Academy Awards. This is the best issue of the series so far.

Serving Supes #4

By: Steve Stern, John Yuan
Released: Jun 1, 2016

It's Awards season, and Cheech and Clive and the gang have set their sights on winning at The Aspies! But can they serve the likes of Dr. Xxrtl without becoming highlights in the In Memoriam segment? With a retailer incentive cover by Tone Rodriguez (The Simpsons).

I picked this one up in Vegas at the Amazing Vegas convention. I've been a fan of the 1First Comics line for a while and this is action packed take on Little Red Riding Hood is right up my alley. This issue has a great fight scene in it and even though the art seems rushed in spots, it is well worth a read.

We finish off this story arc with a good ol'-fashioned race riot, as Dan makes a horrible speech to fix the last horrible speech he made; King diplomatically solves a 25-year-old problem with lies, trickery, and sickening amounts of bloodshed; and Violet reasons that, if you can't walk off into the sunset, then blow something up, and walk off into ...

Serving Supes is a fun book that reads kind of like a sitcom. The situation in this issue is a sitcom staple - the blind date - but it is executed in a pretty hilarious way. The jokes are very funny and the characters are likable despite their quirks. I highly recommend this book.

Love and bullets are in the air!  Clive goes on a blind date, leaving Cheech and Liz to serve papers to the notorious vigilante Man-Hunter. All goes well until Liz and Cheech run into Man-Hunter's murderous butler Jock, and Clive finds out the girl of his dreams hates process servers!
