Iron Man (2020)

BIG IRON!
Tony Stark is looking to restart his engine. He decides he's going back to basics, putting away his high-tech toys and high-profile image so he can get his hands dirty again. It's time to dig into the guts of real machines, put on some old-fashioned metal and fly.
But can he really lay that Stark-sized ego down? Life isn't that s...

Grendel Kentucky

For two generations, the rural hill town of Grendel, Kentucky has honored its Faustian bargain with the monster living in its abandoned coal mine: a human sacrifice every season in return for agrarian prosperity the likes of which this rocky region had never before seen (including its greatest cash crop: the dankest weed in the land). When one town...

I'm a cat person, can't lie. Cats don't listen, they do whatever they want, and they don't care. So, what if there was a cat that possessed all kinds of magic powers, and still didn't care? Also, the cat accentuates various forms of "mow" to express how it feels!

That's basically what this first issue seems to be setting us up for; multiple realities or universes or something, and the c more

This title is my introduction to AWA, a publisher I've been HEARING a lot about but have never actually read anything from, it's also one of about half a dozen #1s I've read this week, so I've been inundated with plenty of new worlds and mythologies.

Basically, biker gangs and white trash have a pact with something that lives in a cave and it has to be fed or else they can't make a bunc more

I can't for the life of me, try to find reasons thought I might, give this anything higher than a 6.

There's glimpses and flickers of promise, but at this point I feel like the idea of buying a piece of AI that eventually becomes sentient and decides "this sucks, peace out" and the aftermath that follows (Her or Ex-Machina come to mind) is a bit tired and lacking any ability to hit on a more

The only other Al Ewing I've read is Immortal Hulk (recommendations, anyone?), but I can safely say the man knows how to leave you hanging at the end of an issue.

The world building within this issue was just enough to wet my taste buds and keep me coming back for more; I feel like Malik has the ability to become one of the more interesting Ahab-esque characters in modern comics.

SCAD is screwing over their students by not allowing them to get partial reimbursement for their tuition costs after the school went to online-only courses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The reason students would seek reimbursement is because with SCAD being an art and design school, part of getting an effective education is using the physical resources that the school provides. There's a class-action lawsuit filed, I'm not sure what its status is now.

jokerman, I've been getting numerous complaints about your conduct on the site. It's created a level of antagonism that goes against the spirit of what I want the site to be and is affecting others' enjoyment of the site. I have no way of knowing if you read all the issues you review, but please only review issues you've read. And for the issues you have read and would like to review, there's a 20 point scale you can use to give a more evolved rating rather than reducing issues to either Masterpiece or Trash. That kind of reductive rating style is not only insulting to others who’ve enjoyed the issues you’ve labeled as Trash, but can either boost or bomb an issue's rating unfairly, which in turn causes our aggregate community ratings for each issue to mean less. This site is built on the contributions of all of us, so please consider the effects your contributions have on the site and the community that enjoys being here. If not, I have no problem with removing your account.
