What was once a dry storyline showed a spark that I hoped would turn into something brighter. From Image Comics, written by Eric Stephenson, with art by Simon Gane, They’re […]

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 […]

A Trippy Dramatic Club Scene In They’re Not Like Us #9

From Image Comics, written by Eric Stephenson, with art by Simon Gane, They’re Not Like Us #9 starts in the middle of a trippy club scene where Syd and friends are hanging out. But who is that devilish looking […]

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 […]
