THE DREAMING / CEMETERY BEACH [Comic Reviews]: Tall, Dark and…

Happy Wednesday, geeks and geekettes! Not that we've overlooked these two titles, but they deserved a whole look all on their own. We've got two esteemed writers taking fresh looks at some of the freshest, weirdest (in a good way) books coming out from two of the best writers in the genre. So sneak a …

SANDMAN UNIVERSE / HAL JORDAN & THE GLC / FANTASTIC FOUR [Reviews]: First Family Homecoming!

Vertigo has a special place in the hearts of a lot of people who grew up reading comics in the Nineties. Karen Berger and Shelly Bond curated a ridiculous run of titles for mature readers based on the sensibilities of Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, Grant Morrison’s DOOM PATROL, and Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN that yielded a …

SDCC 2017 [Panel/Comic Review]: Young Animal / Doom Patrol #7!

DC’S YOUNG ANIMAL (Friday - 5AB) - Okay, I’ll admit.. my main reason for attending this panel wasn’t to learn more about the new DC comics imprint Young Animal and what they have in-store for its thirsty comic audience in the not-too-distant future.

LUCIFER / THE VIOLENT / SNOW BLIND / SCARLET WITCH [Reviews]: The Blind Side.

And the Shortest Review of 2015 Award goes to... There is no need to make this review overly long, because it is simple. Does a neo noir thriller set in modern day Los Angeles about a turf war between Gabriel and Satan sound awesome? Good. Cuz it is, as evidenced by Lucifer #1. Holly Beck (The …

THE DARK KNIGHT III / MS. MARVEL / VADER DOWN / MIGHTY THOR [Reviews]: Happy Batsgiving.

The Dark Knight Returns is a masterpiece. Frank Miller could do no wrong. Daredevil, Batman: Year One, and Sin City; the man was untouchable. In 2001 he followed up TDKR with a sequel. It was trash. Next came his film adaptation of The Spirit. It too, was trash. The one-time mastermind was quickly becoming a …

THE GODDAMNED / ALL-NEW, ALL-DIFFERENT AVENGERS / ILLUMINATI / LAST SONS of AMERICA [Reviews]: Hell Hath No Fury.

Every now and again a publisher will announce a series that falls so far into a creator's wheelhouse that the level of anticipation for that series rises to heights that are difficult to live up to. Saga and Sex Criminals, both published by Image, are the two most recent examples that come to mind. The …
