TweetThis week’s review slate once more races backwards and forwards through time – we’ve got Skybreaker #3, which came out a short while back, along with an issue of Liberator that had bunnies on the front cover, as well as Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril #1.
As past of my San Diego Comic-Con experience, I was lucky enough to be given a Mophie Juice Pack Plus to test as a back up power source for my iPhone. I always meant to get one but never had the $$ and the time to pick one up. Of course, zillions of people already have one, so I’m not spilling any secrets when I say that the Mophie made this Comic-Con a breeze compared to past ones, where finding a power outlet every six hours or so was my main goal in life.
TweetI have seen The Wolverine! And boy was he shirtless a lot. This movie was half superhero film and half ringing endorsement for babyoil products. Hugh Jackman has returned as Logan for another round, and this time he’s surrounded by ninjas and on the prowl in Japan. Was it a good movie, though? Or was […]
Image Wrestling and Whispering: Lynda Barry’s Kaleidoscopic Modus in Girlhood Through the Looking Glass
Tweet The swing of this year’s SDCC has finally begun to wind down, and while there was inarguably no lack in the immense influx of comics/movie/merchandise-related news, there was amazingly still a capacity for SDCC to focus on and feature the burgeoning comic academic scene. Along with this year’s Comics Art Conference, the Eisner […]
TweetIt’s been a while since I had a chance to properly crack into some reviews, so you’re getting a bit of an all-star lineup of books up on the slate this week. First up will be the very talked-about Young Avengers, the not-talked-about-enough Flash, and the talkative Quantum & Woody. I’d be interested to see […]
Tweet Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake Natasha Allegri (w, a, c), Patrick Seery (c) Britt Wilson (l), Noelle Stevenson, Lucy Knisley (back-ups), Shannon Watters (e) Here’s a six-issue miniseries from Kaboom, who have spent the past few years making work-for-hire franchise comics feel like creator-owned independent comics. Adventure Time: Fionna & Cake is a spin-off […]
TweetMonkeybrain have been going for a year now, garnering a fair handful of Eisner nominations and building up a substantial library of creator-owned titles. That in mind, what are their most recent releases like? Bandette seems to have taken most attention – let’s take a look at some of their other current comics.
TweetThis week’s been a big week for comics! All kinds of goings-on were, well, going-on. I’m narrowing it down to just the two comics, though. The ones everybody’s been talking about. Lazarus #1 from Image, and Hawkeye #11 from Marvel. Both books have fantastic creative teams and all the goodwill in the world pushing them […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
