Beautiful Canvas #1 Review: Crimes Of Sound And Fury Signifying Nothing

Beautiful Canvas is a new crime (ish?) comic out this week from Black Mask Studios. I say “crime-ish” since it seems to have a crime story at the heart of it, buried as it is under a few layers of super powers, made-for-TV-movie characters and baffling dialog choices.

Efficiency And Progress Is Ours Once More – The Dregs #1 Review

I love Black Mask comics. It’s no secret. I dig on companies and people with ethics (which is part of the reason I idolize Chris Roberson) and more than that I dig people who use their storytelling abilities to try to get out something more than entertainment. That being said, it’s a tricky line to […]
