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. Unfortunately, her ideas are far from entertaining. We start off with the city in trouble from a snake-controlling villain called The Master. […]

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

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. After their antics get them kicked from their label the girls find themselves blacklisted from the industry and forced to turn to the worst of all evils: reality TV. […]

The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #8 Review: A Spellbinding Issue

Melissa Joan Hart hang up your witch's hat and make some room for my new favorite Sabrina. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #8 is here and it's a wild ride from start to finish. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been a series of page-turning issues since day one and #8 is no exception. The […]

Archie Comics Double Digest #281 Review: Meet Uncle Roy

Another day, another Archie Digest. This time we're taking a look at Archie Comics Double Digest #281. The first thing to note about this particular digest is that it includes the new story, "It's All Relative" focusing on Archie's uncle Roy. It's a fun, short little romp with Archie's extended family though the plot is […]

Dark Ark #1 Review: Monsters Come Flooding In

It's safe to say that most know the story of Noah sent to build an ark and fill it with two of each kind of animal. But what about the mythical creatures of the world? The goblins, vampries, naga, and yes, even unicorns? In Dark Ark, we meet the man who is tasked with saving all […]

Marvel Comics Digest – Avengers Review: How A Team Was Formed

Previously, I reviewed the first Marvel Digest and I wasn't impressed. The stories were a mess of inconsistencies and felt more random than a concentrated volume. What was supposed to be a highlight of Spider-Man as a character fell flat. So how does the second digest — this time focusing on the Avengers — fare? It's […]

Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27

Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27 Review: Get To Class!

School is almost back in session and we've got Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27 to ease you back into another year of football games, pop quizzes, and…psychic abilities? Sure, we'll go with that. The slice-of-life comics featured in this digest are surprisingly soothing and genuinely enjoyable. They start off with the students of Riverdale […]

Wynonna Earp: Season Zero #1 Review: Delving into the Past

Wynonna Earp: Season Zero is the new five-issue tie-in to the hit Syfy show Wynonna Earp. Wynonna Earp: Season Zero isn't quite a prequel, though the main focus hinges on our titular character's shady past. Instead, it's meant as supplemental material for the show, answering some burning questions that don't quite fit in the main storyline. […]

From The NYAFF: 'Mrs. B., A North Korean Woman' Review

Often when the topic of North Korea is the focus of a documentary, it focuses mainly on the journey out. Dramatic, harrowing escapes are recounted along with the highlighted struggles of a population held hostage. Though this is the story of a woman successfully escaping from North Korea, Mrs. B., A North Korean Woman is […]

'Jane' Review From The NYAFF: A Vibrant Character Barely Used

Jane is marketed as the story of a young woman abandoned by her boyfriend who finds refuge with a transgender woman named Jane. What actually occurs is a lot more complex than that. The style of this movie is incredibly fragmented — a stylistic choice paired with a cyclical plot that just misses the mark. […]

Dragon Age: Knight Errant #3 Review: Less Action Than You'd Expect

You'd think that with wars constantly being waged and darkspawn roaming the land, Dragon Age: Knight Errant would be a lot more action-packed — but you'd be incorrect. That said, there's nothing really wrong with this book. The art, done by Fernando Heinz Furukawa, is solid, but nothing breathtaking — a little bit of a letdown […]

'Jem and The Holograms: Infinite' Review: More Than a Little Pizzazz

Those who were worried we'd seen the last of Jem with the end of Jem and the Holograms, despair ye not. The girls are back and ready for a new adventure in Jem and The Holograms: Infinite, a miniseries running in tandem with The Misfits: Infinite. Jem and the Holograms: Infinite has a gorgeous color palette, courtesy of […]

Kull Eternal #1 Review: Grab Your Sword And A Machine Gun

I think we all feel a little nostalgia towards a simpler time in comics, when men wore little more than loincloths and oversized weapons, and every woman was a witch bent on seducing and destroying each mortal she came across. What, no? Just me?   Well, you should read Kull Eternal anyway. Taking inspiration from the […]
