Long Lost #2

Long Lost #2 Review: Tension Abound

Out December 27th is Long Lost #2, the creepy indie horror comic published by Scout Comics. With spot on pacing and a clean aesthetic, Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle have yet another fantastic issue in store.

Powerpuff girls: the bureau of bad

Review: Powerpuff Girls: The Bureau of Bad Is Not Too Bad at All

A lot has been said about the Powerpuff Girls reboot. There’s been plenty of criticism and confusion about some of the choices made, both aesthetically and in the girls’ personalities. Given the hit-and-miss television show (heavy on the miss), I was reluctant to dive into Powerpuff Girls: The Bureau of Bad. But what I found […]

The Shadow Vol. 3 #4

The Shadow Vol. 3 #4 Review: The More the Merrier

Issue #4 of The Shadow Vol. 3 finds our mysterious burn victim back on the streets, bedecked in the iconic red and black of The Shadow. It looks as if we’ve finally got confirmation on his identity — not just with costuming, but classic black speech bubbles as well. Maria is certainly convinced; though the […]

Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini Review

Almost every child at one point or another wants to be a magician when they grow up. And there’s arguably no more well-known magician than Harry Houdini. His life and death are full of mysteries and embellishments — something that various media has latched onto and run with throughout the years. Despite that, I find myself […]

‘High Moon: Bullet Holes And Bitemarks’ Review: Great-Looking, But Narratively Jarring

It’s Hiiiiigh Moon. No, that’s not some strange Overwatch reference. Today we’re talking High Moon: Bullet Holes and Bite Marks — and beware of some spoilers. The first volume in the three-volume series currently being published by Papercutz’s Super Genius imprint collects the first three issues of the original High Moon. At first a webcomic created […]

Motor Crush

Motor Crush #7 Review: Dom Is Back In Town, And Nothing Is The Same

Motor Crush is back, and we finally get to find out where Domino has been. Motor Crush #6 gave us plenty of backstory and a healthy dose of appreciation for Sully, but now it’s time for our girl to get back in the mix — and #7 does not disappoint. Dom has been gone for two […]

Shadow batman

The Shadow/Batman #1 Review: What Evil Lurks In The Hearts Of Bats

Batman and the Shadow are back with another fabulous team-up, this time with Steve Orlando in complete control of the script. A semi-sequel to the run we had earlier this year, in this six issue run we see the Dark Knight start on unequal footing. Out of Gotham — and seemingly out of luck when […]

champions

Champions #13 Review: Broken Buildings And Bad Dads

Not too long ago, Marvel announced that we’d be getting yet another crossover — this time featuring the Avengers and the Champions. It was billed as a “cataclysmic clash” between the older generation, the new, and a world shaking super villain. The covers seemed to bleed contention, spelling trouble for our young cast. Well, we […]

The Unbelievable Gwenpool #21 Review: Believable And Bland

Gwenpool is back and looking to join the Avengers. In The Unbelievable Gwenpool #21, our titular hero is set on the task of brainstorming just how to join the illustrious and well-paying team.

Slick art, a chilling story, and a palatable sense of dread; welcome to Long Lost. With their attention to detail and allowance of their story to expand and move on its own unburdened by unnecessary dialogue, Matthew Erman and Lisa Sterle have created an incredibly effective horror comic.

World Of Archie Jumbo Comics Digest #71 Review: Trapped In The Past

I’ve written a bit about the Archie Digests in the past. Some I’ve been pretty fond of, while others fell squarely into “okay” territory. But the main constant throughout all of them has been the small town, welcoming feeling you get from reading Archie comics. Under usual circumstances, Riverdale is a pleasant place with a […]

Jem And The Misfits TPB Review: Everyone Loves A Good Villain

Is this the end for The Misfits? That is the big question in Jem and the Misfits trade paperback, a book collecting #1-5 of the titular comic.
