TweetIt’s not often that a superhero comic gives me chills, particularly when we’re talking villains, but then it’s not often you that see a superhero comic from someone like Kate Brown.
TweetA few years back, Greg Rucka and Michael Lark (along with Ed Brubaker) won a lot of critical acclaim for their work on DC’s Gotham Central. Rucka and Lark have reunited for Lazarus at Image. (Brubaker’s already been Fatale at Image for over a year, so the primary creators for Gotham Central seem to have relocated.)
Tweet Let me start by saying that THE HIC & HOC ILLUSTRATED JOURNAL OF HUMOR isn’t the most illustrious-looking small press anthology to recently come out. In terms of its sizing and format, this freshman compilation endeavor from Hic & Hoc is quite modest and free from glitzy eye-catching add ons like silk-screened dust jackets […]
Tweet Noah Van Sciver possesses one of the most original voices in indie comics. There’s little doubt about that. But he’s been on a strange road of personal exploration that has led to some big successes and currently he’s taking stock of what he wants to draw and how, while also continuing to work on […]
Tweet The Suitcase by Dan Berry Blank Slate Books It begins with an ordinary, yet unfortunate, circumstance. After agreeing to feed her neighbour’s cat and dog while they’re on a weekend break, Helen, on a visit to feed the pets, finds the dog dead. Nothing untoward; Cruncher had had, by all accounts, a long and […]
TweetThe collected edition of FASHION BEAST, including issues #1-10, is due to arrive from Avatar Press in both hardcover and trade paperback in August, and since plenty of comic reading compatriots have expressed to me that they will be waiting to read the series as a collection, this review will be divided into spoiler-free and […]
TweetPeople who love She-Hulk really love She-Hulk. A lot of these people are women. Lawyer when human, party-girl superhero when green, always funny, always feminist, occasionally cheesecake. Maybe not the worst fit for a funny chick-lit novel. So Disney has apparently noticed that women like superheroines. Rock on, I say. And they decided to test the commercial […]
Tweet I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I purchased this digital comic, but I’m a sucker for dogs and Monkey Brain comics haven’t let me down yet. Gabriel Hardman’s Kinski is simple, yet elegant, with a twist of mystery and so much potential. The story is centered around Joe who works for a […]
TweetTiny Pencil Edited by Amber Hsu and Katriona Chapman Tiny Pencil is a brand new, all-graphite, comic and art anthology edited, produced and bought to life by artists and creators, Amber Hsu and Katriona Chapman. It is also, quite simply, one of the most exquisite publications you will see this year.
TweetOn the back of their monumentally successful Kickstarter campaign, the team behind Aw Yeah Comics have made the first issue of their new series available. If you backed the Kickstarter – and evidence suggests that somewhere close to 85% of the country did – then you’ll already have the issue in your inbox. Otherwise, you […]
Tweet Deep in the Woods by Noah van Sciver, Nic Breutzman You might remember Deep in the Woods from it’s modest Kickstarter campaign late last year, of which I’m glad I was a backer. One of the things I’m really interested in seeing in comics is experimentation with format, so when 2D Cloud put out […]
TweetThere are comics that I can’t wait to read every month, and I become a moppy-pathetic mess when one of those books gets cancelled for whatever reason. May’s book was: Dan the Unharmable. I should have wrote this review a year ago, but here goes nothing. This is a complete semi-spoiler free review of the entire 12 […]
