Sideways #1 cover by Kenneth Rocafort

Sideways #1 Review: Livestream for Your Life

Sideways is the tale of Derek James, a high-schooler who ended up with the ability to leap through dimensions after an ill-fated trip to Gotham. But instead of donning a slick costume and taking to the streets to fight bad guys, Derek is more concerned with his follower count. Derek is definitely a product of […]

Bonehead #2 Review: A Story Still Finding Its Place

Previously, I was far from impressed with Bonehead #1. While I felt that the series had potential, it was weighted down with clumsy dialogue and the tendency to over explain. But the gorgeous artwork and colors — supplied by Rhoald Marcellius and Sakti Yuwono — pushed me into giving it a second chance. With the second issue […]

Godshaper SC

Godshaper SC Review: A Tightly Woven, Emotional Journey

Diving into Godshaper, I already had high hopes. I’d read Eliot’s review of the first issue, and it’d seemed right up my alley. Godshaper is set in a universe where the laws of physics began to mutate in the late ’50s. Taking their place are gods — one for every person. Now the world is […]

Long Lost #3 Review: Growing Some Teeth

Another month brings another review of Long Lost. I’ve talked at length about how much I enjoy this series: so how does issue #3 stack up? Horror is the most prevalent piece of this issue. The way Francis and Piper play off of each other is set on the back burner in favor of spooky happenings. […]

The Limbo Lounge Review: A Delightfully Strange Romp Between Life and Death

Purgatory is a popular subject in books, movies, and TV. In Limbo Lounge, author and artist Dave Calver brings his take on the topic to comics. Our story follows Lou, a man who wakes up morphed into a giant flower in an unknown world. If that description seems odd to you, then buckle up — Limbo […]

Shadow/Batman #4

The Shadow/Batman #4 Review: Snowballing Despair

It’s not often that a comic book offers up what seems like true, impossible hopelessness — at least, not at the scale that The Shadow/Batman #4 brings to the table. Continuing the reveal of the Silent Seven’s reach, #4 is bathed in frustration and stress in a totally fantastic way. Writer Steve Orlando doesn’t let […]

Secret Weapons #0 Review: Not Just for the Birds

It’s hard to get tired of superheroes, even when most of their powers boil down to the same thing. Flight, healing factors, super strength — all classic and useful abilities. No one can argue that there are certain things you’d want to do — such as mind-reading and, like, accidentally summoning soda — that you […]

Pestilence

Pestilence Vol. 1 Review: Someone Call the Plague Doctor

Often a comic doesn’t quite manage to catch your interest in issue #1. That was the problem I originally had with Pestilence. Written by Frank Tieri, the premise is an interesting take on the zombie genre. It poses the question: What if the Black Death was really just the world’s first zombie infestation? Set in […]
