Darkseid

Blue Beetle #10 Review: A Spritz Of Rain In The DC Drought

I remain surprised that very few, if anyone, used this book to challenge my “The Marvel Monsoon vs. the DC Drought” argument. Maybe it’s because this book has a rather inconsistent quality, or maybe it’s because the fact that this book remains pretty fun regardless of that inconsistent quality kind of helps prove my point. […]

Blue Beetle #9 Review- A Weird, Wild Ride And I Am OMAC

While both Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord Blue Beetles (never read anything with the actual original), Keith Giffen and Scott Kolins Blue Beetle was not a fun read initially. One major turn-off to the book was the constant damn bickering between any two characters but especially between Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord themselves. Interior conflict […]


Calling Out Kindt And Kolins On The Madness Of Past Aways #5

I have a very serious question to ask: Are Matt Kindt and Scott Kolins just feeding us a load of hooey in Past Aways? Or even perhaps bullcrap, not to stray too far into generally acceptable profanity. Sometimes the joke just gets more elaborate until someone calls the guilty party out, and they are waiting […]


A Tentacular 6 Page Preview Of PastAways #4 From Dark Horse

I am fully hooked on reading the Dark Horse series PastAways written by Matt Kindt and drawn by Scott Kolins. Issue #3 was incredibly active as the team, pulled together to face an extra-temporal threat against mankind in the form of a giant sentient and semi-organic robot (do I need to say more than that […]


Advance Review: Past Aways Is Ahead Of Its Time, Plus Preview

When Matt Kindt and Scott Kolins decided to make 2015 “the distant past” of their new comic, they flipped us all into a strange trans-temporal state where a sense of humor is a saving grace. Matt Kindt’s elaborately complex and yet strangely intuitive award-winning series Mind MGMT, also from Dark Horse, has established his strange […]

Superman Really Becomes The Man Of Steel In Action Comics #39

Superman has been called the Man of Steel for decades, but thanks to John Henry’s organic steel, Kal-El gets a little closer to that name being true in this week’s Action Comics #39. This is the final issue of the Horrorville storyline written by Greg Pak and drawn by Scott Kolins and Aaron Kuder. [Source: […]

Ch-Ch-Changes – Marvel And DC Comics In October, From Action Comics To All-New Miracleman

Another look at upcoming comics, that might differ from how they were originally solicited… Justice League #34 will be drawn by Scott Kolins, not Doug Mahnke and Keith Champagne. It also has the cover above by Jason Fabok, originally intended for his first issue #26. Superman/Batman #16 will be drawn by Marc Deering and Diogenes Neves and not Jae Lee. Though […]
