Green Arrow #1 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Sean Izaakse Coloring by: Romulo Fajardo Jr. Lettering by: Troy Peteri Editing by: Ben Abernathy Now, I would never say I’m a huge Green Arrow guy. I am a huge Black Canary guy because she’s the bees-knees and needs her own book. But Green Arrow is cool too, and […]

The Forged #1 Review

Written by: Greg Rucka, Eric Trautmann Art by: Mike Henderson Coloring by: Nolan Woodard Lettering by: Ariana Maher Editing by: Alejandro Arbona Have you ever wanted a Warhammer comic that was less aggressively grimdark and more aggressively sexual? That’s the vibe the Forged #1 has. It’s far more colorful and upbeat, for sure. But it’s […]

Bloodline: Daughter of Blade #1 Review

Written by: Danny Lore Art by: Karen S. Darboe Coloring by: Cris Peter Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino Editing by: Martin Biro, Annalise Bissa I’m not a Blade guy, but I have nothing against Blade either.

While there wasn’t anything not from the Big-two last year, you may be surprised by this year’s best spots.  I expanded my horizons this […]

Batman / Spawn #1 Review

Written by: Todd McFarlane Art by: Greg Capullo Inking by: Todd McFarlane Coloring by: Dave McCaig Lettering by: Tom Napolitano Editing by: Ben Abernathy, Marie Javins Batman / Spawn is a rare book where I think it would have been better with no narration. Maybe even no dialogue. I say this because Greg Capullo reminds […]

Dark Web #1 Review

Written by: Zeb Wells Art by: Adam Kubert Coloring by: Frank Martin Lettering by: VC’s Joe Carmagna Editing by: Kaeden McGahey, Albert Banaszak Alright, I am a known X-Men fan, so it’s not shocking that I would read anything with the merry mutants in the title. But Spider-Man? With the way people complain about the […]

Behold, Behemoth #1 Review

Written by: Tate Brombal Illustrated by: Nick Robles Lettering by: Andworld Design Editing by: Ramiro Portnoy, Eric Harburn Maybe you’ve heard, I really like Boom! Studios and the books they put out. They do some franchise adaptations, but they’re better known and celebrated for the original comics they put out. Think Something is Killing the […]
