Is There A Glimmer Of Hope To Be Found In They’re Not Like Us #11?

In my last review of They’re Not Like Us I voiced the deflated feelings I was having about the series. Something was missing. The explosive content that had gripped me in the first story ARC was gone, and I wasn’t sure if it was coming back. I wish I was here to report that They’re Not Like Us […]

Deflated By Issue #10 Of They’re Not Like Us

I can’t believe we’ve already arrived at the tenth issue of They’re Not Like Us, from Image Comics, written by Eric Stephenson, with art by Simon Gane. Normally, I’m quite satisfied after reading a new issue of They’re Not Like Us, but something is falling flat for me. I described issues #8 and #9 as build […]

The Return Of The Nowhere Men In 2016

  That’s a first look at the Nowhere Men #8 cover. In an interview with Image Comics publisher Eric Stephenson recently, we asked about the status of his comic book. He told us, Nowhere Men will be back in January. The plan was to have it out in November or December, but I’m treating it more […]

But who is that devilish looking […]


They’re Not Like Us #8: A Lot More Than A Cup Of Tea

After a dramatic seventh issue, They’re Not Like Us returns this month with an interesting set of events.

You Can’t Not Read They’re Not Like Us #4

I think we all have a list of comics that we read for fun, and then a list for comics that we read because we can’t NOT read them. The content that lies within is so powerful, that it’s impossible to resist reading no matter how it makes us feel. That’s how I feel about […]

Image’s They’re Not Like Us #3 Is Influential And Memorable

As a frequent reader of all types of comics, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle of things. You’ll often encounter storylines that are just trotting along without any real meaning behind the words.
