Catwoman hangs onto Batman's back as he looked away and she looks at the camera.

Batman/Catwoman Special Review

Written by: Tom King Art by: John Paul Leon, Bernard Chang, Shawn Crystal, Mitch Gerads Coloring by: Dave Stewart Lettering by: Clayton Cowles This Batman/Catwoman series has been all over the place for me, and this special kind of made it worse. Where it started out pretty good, with a premise […]

A cyber Wolverine has a glowing suit on the cover of X Deaths of Wolverine.

X Deaths of Wolverine #1 Review

Written by: Benjamin Percy Art by: Federico Vicentini Coloring by: Dijjo Lima, Frank Martin Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit So, I don’t think a second issue has made me eat my words as fast as X Deaths of Wolverine has. Where X Lives of Wolverine felt like just another Wolverine-focused event, […]

She-Hulk poses for the cover of She-Hulk #1.

She-Hulk #1 Review

Written by: Rainbow Rowell Art by: Roge Antonio Coloring by: Rico Renzi Lettering by: VC’s Joe Caramagna Do you like John Bryne’s classic run on She-Hulk? Did you not enjoy Jennifer Walters’ time as the Hulk? Well, then this series kind of feels like it’s for you, but not. This new […]

Wolverine is wrapped up in Omega Red's tendrils on the cover of X Lives of Wolverine.

X Lives of Wolverine #1 Review

Written by: Benjamin Percy Art by: Joshua Cassara Coloring by: Frank Martin Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit X Lives of Wolverine is a book that is going to suffer from the way it’s being sold more than the content itself. This book is the only X-book furthering the X-story for several […]

The Marauders cast of Kate Pryde, Bishop, Emma Frost, Iceman, Pyro, Callisto, and Tempo on the cover of Marauders #27.

Marauders #27 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Matteo Lolli, Phil Noto Coloring by: Rain Beredo, Phil Noto Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit Marauders was my favorite X-Men book at the beginning of Dawn of X. Among the original 6 titles, it still remains my favorite. Marauders #27 is an end to that […]

Daredevil: Woman Without Fear stands in the rain.

Daredevil: Woman Without Fear #1 Review

Written by: Chip Zdarsky Art by: Rafael De Latorre Coloring by: Federico Blee Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Daredevil: Woman Without Fear is interesting for a couple of reasons. Its happening during Devil’s Reign, an event series that spun out of the Daredevil comic where she was the main character. Then […]

Cyclops- *Ahem* I mean Captain Krakoa poses for the camera in X-Men #6.

X-Men #6 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Pepe Larraz Coloring by: Marte Garcia Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles I like the idea of Captain Krakoa, a lot. I think Cyclops becoming Captain Krakoa is an excellent choice. Not because he’s like Captain America in character, but because he’s like him in his […]

Mystique is partially transforming into Wolverine.

Inferno #4 Review

Written by: Jonathan Hickman Art by: Valerio Schiti, Stefano Caselli Coloring by: David Curiel Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino I absolutely love the Krakoa Era of X-Men, I’m hardpressed to say there’s a single issue I’ve hated. At the same time, I can’t say there has been anything as amazing as […]

DC vs Vampires #3 Review

Written by: James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg Art by: Otto Schmidt Coloring by: Otto Schmidt Lettering by: Tom Napolitano I just want to say that Evil Hal Jordan is the best Hal Jordon. The more important question is, is Vampire Hal better than Parallax? DC vs Vampires #3 continues to make […]

Spider-Man is being stabbed by Taskmaster while being held down by Doc Ock's arms on the Devil's Reign #2 cover..

Devil’s Reign #2 Review

Written by: Chip Zdarsky Art by: Marco Checchetto Coloring by: Marcio Menyz Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Devil’s Reign #2 continues the excellence of the last issue. The thing that immediately stands out to me is how this issue isn’t just here to build things up for later issues. This issue continues […]

The main character of A King's Vengeance sits on top of a velociraptor as he looks over an abandoned looking city.

A King’s Vengeance #1 Review

Written by: Davila Leblanc, Peter Ricq Art by: Peter Ricq Scout Comics is that indie publisher people should pay more attention to. First, it was Midnight Western Theatre that was doing something that caught my eye, and now it’s A King’s Vengeance. This new fantasy world is ripped from the minds […]

Magneto and Wanda dance together on the cover of The Trial of Magento #5.

The Trial of Magneto #5 Review

Written by: Leah Williams Art by: Lucas Werneck Coloring by: Edgar Delgado Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles It may sound a little ridiculous to say that a character needs a redemption arc. In other mediums, a character only needs to be what the creatives need them to be. But in comic […]

Captain Britain kneels with her sword before her as Saturnye stands behind her on the cover of Excalibur #26.

Excalibur #26 Review

Written by: Tini Howard Art by: Marcus To Coloring by: Erick Arciniega Lettering by: VC’s Ariana Maher This is it, Excalibur #26, the final issue of the longest running series of Dawn of X. This has been a controversial series, with many taking issue with the characterization of Betsy Braddock and […]

Cassandra Cain and Stephanie Brown leap from a building as the Batgirls.

Batgirls #1 Review

Written by: Becky Cloonan, Michael W. Conrad Art by: Jorge Corona Coloring by: Sarah Stern Lettering by: Becca Carey The Batgirls finally get their own book! They’ve been in the corners of other Bat-books since the start of Infinite Frontier, and it’s about time that changed. As a first issue, it’s […]

Batman #118 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Jorge Molina, Mikel Janin Coloring by: Tomeu Morey Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Batman #118 is emblematic of both the successes and failings of Batman as a character these last few years. Many people, in the DC Universe and the fanbase wants him to grow as […]

Spider-Man and both Daredevil's take out Thunderbolt soldiers with the book's title, "Devil's Reign" in the corner.

Devil’s Reign #1 Review

Written by: Chip Zdarsky Art by: Marco Checchetto Coloring by: Marcio Menyz Lettering by: Clayton Cowles It would be easy and misleading to say that Devil’s Reign is a continuation of the fantastic Daredevil series that just finished. You can jump into this book without having read a single issue of […]

The roster of Justice League Incarnate run away from the blast. The roster includes, Aquawoman, Flashpoint Batman, Thunderer, Avery Flash, Mary Marvel, Captain Carrot, and President Superman.

Justice League Incarnate #1 Review

Written by: Joshua Williamsom, Dennis Culver Art by: Brandon Peterson, Andrei Bressan, Tom Derenick Coloring by: Hi-fi Lettering by: Tom Napolitano This book is just fun. The cast is fun, the artwork is fun, the stakes are fun, the setting is fun, everything about Justice League Incarnate is fun. This book […]

Wolverine is trapped in the background as hand with a scalpel looms in the foreground.

X-Men #5 Review

Written by: Gerry Duggan Art by: Javier Pina & Ze Carlos Coloring by: Erick Arciniega Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles Now at X-Men #5, I think it’s easy to say that this series isn’t going to focus on Krakoa. In fact, this series feels like it’s trying to avoid Krakoa as […]

The Incredible Hulk smashes into the ground to make a gigantic explosion.

The Incredible Hulk #1 Review

Written by: Donny Cates Art by: Ryan Ottley Coloring by: Frank Martin Lettering by: VC’s Cory Petit I’ve always been a more casual fan of the Hulk. I like his movies more than most people, I enjoyed his cartoon, and I enjoy his appearances in Marvel events and on Marvel team-books. […]

Ranch is in the foreground over a Dragon Ball background.

Dragon Ball: The Merits of Fanfiction

This is typically a comic book site, and Dragon Ball isn’t technically a comic book, I know. But I wanted to talk about a topic that’s been an important part of my life for the past few weeks. Fanfiction is almost a dirty word in some circles. It’s when fans take […]

Superman kisses Jay in Superman: Son of Kal-El #5.

Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor Art by: John Timms Coloring by: Hi-fi Lettering by: Dave Sharpe Tom Taylor is two-for-two this week, between Superman: Son of Kal-El #5 and Dark Ages #3. Where in Dark Ages he twisted the world against our heroes, here he brings a newish hero into his own […]

Apocalypse tears Iron Man in half on the cover of Dark Ages #3.

Dark Ages #3 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor Art by: Iban Coello Coloring by: Brian Reber Lettering by: VC’s Joe Sabino While the first two issues felt a bit slow, it was necessary for what we get here in Dark Ages #3. Here, we have the heartwarming characters moments (the ultimate red herrings) just before […]

Wiz Kid takes center stage before Cable and Storm on the cover of S.W.O.R.D. #10.

S.W.O.R.D. #10 Review

Written by: Al Ewing Art by: Jacopo Camagni Coloring by: Fernando Sifuentes of Protobunker Studios Lettering by: VC’s Ariana Maher What I love about this era of X-Men is how it takes the time to give lesser-known characters their due. This also–thankfully–has given lesser represented groups time with characters like them. […]

Venom throws around a lot of soldiers.

Venom #1 Review

Written by: Al Ewing, Ram V Penciling by: Bryan Hitch Inking by: Andrew Currie Coloring by: Alex Sinclair Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles I love Al Ewing’s work on both S.W.O.R.D. and Guardians of the Galaxy. With GOTG now over, it was only a matter of time before he had another […]

Superman lands on Warworld with Midnighter, Omac, Apollo, Steel, and Lightray behind him on the cover of Action Comics #1036.

Action Comics #1036 Review

Written by: Phillip Kennedy Johnson Art by: Daniel Sampere Coloring by: Adriano Lucas Lettering by: Dave Sharpe What’s more important for making a good villain? The way he talks, the way he walks, or what he talks and walks for? Mongul is a classic Superman villain, famous for one good story. […]

The feet of the Great Gatsby #1 at the end of his pier, looking out at the green light.

The Great Gatsby Comic #1 Review

Written by: F. Scott Fitzgerald Adapted by: Ted Adams Art by: Jorge Coelho Coloring by: Ines Amaro Lettering by: Robbie Robins This may seem surprising or not at all but the original The Great Gatsby is one of my favorite books. It’s strange because, on a surface level, it doesn’t fit […]

The classic Justice League International line-up is altogether to be investigated in The Human Target.

The Human Target #1 Review

Written by: Tom King Art by: Greg Smallwood Lettering by: Clayton Cowles Tom King is one of my favorite writers, but every time he starts a new series, I go back and forth on whether I should read it month to month, or in trade. That’s how I came to love […]

A medieval Batman, Superman, Harley Quinn, and Alfred stand on the cover of Dark Knights of Steel together.

Dark Knights of Steel #1 Review

Written by: Tom Taylor Art & Coloring by: Yasmine Putri Lettering by: Wes Abbot There are so many cool ideas in Dark Knights of Steel. Whether it’s DC or Marvel, Tom Taylor really does know how to make an elseworld story interesting and twist the fiction as we know it. Because […]

Batman and Green Arrow fight side-by-side, surrounded by a sea of vampires on the cover of DC vs Vampires.

DC Vs Vampires #1 Review

Written by: James Tynion IV, Matthew Rosenberg Art by: Otto Schmidt Coloring by: Otto Schmidt Lettering by: Tom Napolitano When it came to comic books this week, everything really did come up Millhouse. Between Red Hood getting a much-needed upgrade, and more Inferno, you miht think a vampire book wouldn’t hit […]

The Red Hood is surround by Zombies in Task Force Z.

Task Force Z #1 Review

Written by: Matthew Rosenberg Penciling by: Eddy Barrows Inking by: Eber Ferriera Coloring by: Adriano Lucas Lettering by: Rob Leigh Since Red Hood & the Outlaws ended, DC has been experimenting with the teams they put the Red Hood on. Task Force Z is no different in that regard. First, it […]

Batman and the Foundation fight in front of the Batman Who Laughs on the cover of Batman/Fornite: Foundation.

Batman/Fornite: Foundation #1

Written by: Scott Snyder, Christos Gage, Donald Mustard Art by: Joshua Hixson Coloring by: Roman Stevens Lettering by: Andworld Design I resent that the original Batman/Fortnite book is one of the best books for new readers to get into comics. I resent that Batman/Fornite: Foundation is written by one of the […]

Nubia stares at the reader for the cover of Nubia and the Amazons.

Nubia and the Amazons #1 Review

Written by: Stephanie Williams & Vita Ayala Penciling by: Alitha Martinez Inking by: Mark Morales Coloring by: Emilio Lopez Lettering by: Becca Carey For a book titled Nubia and the Amazons, I expected it to be more about Nubia. I’m not complaining, but don’t be surprised when you’ve picked this book […]

Bigby Wolf walks out of fire, half-transformed, carrying an empty Bat-cowl in his hand on the cover of Batman vs Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham #2.

Batman Vs Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham #2

Written by: Bill Willingham Penciling by: Brian Level Inking by: Jay Leisten Coloring by: Lee Loughridge Lettering by: Steve Wands Firstly, wow… wow, wow… wow. I thought I had my problems with the first issue of Batman Vs Bigby! A Wolf in Gotham. That had more to do with the creator […]

Wanda is surrounded by red feathers as she floats through empty space.

The Trial of Magneto #3 Review

Written by: Leah Williams Art by: Lucas Werneck & David Messina Coloring by: Edgar Delgado Lettering by: VC’s Clayton Cowles The first two issues of the Trial of Magneto have been two of the best issues I’ve read all year. The way they’ve furthered Wanda’s state of self-healing but also Magneto’s […]

There are two silhouettes of the two main characters of The Saturn Effect: Alpha as they sit inside some metal construction.

The Saturn Effect: Alpha Review

Forewarning, I purchased this comic after a trip to New York Comic-Con 2021 and was able to get the first three issues signed by the author himself. That’s not to say I have any personal connection to him or The Saturn Effect: Alpha Kickstarter. I only mention this because I may […]

The cover of Coddlesworth's Clockwork Circus, with the two main characters, Drum and Imari walking through gears covered in vines.

Coddlesworth’s Clockwork Circus Short Review

Written by: Danny Oliver  Art by: Slobodan Jovanovich  Coloring by: Kurt Michael Russell  Lettering by: Matt Krotzer  Editing by: Janelle Asselin I do have to preface that I did financially back Coddlesworth’s Clockwork Circus on Kickstarter. To say that this didn’t motivate me to do a little review of it on […]

Elsa Bloodstone stands with the stars to her back, as one of my recommendations to be added into Midnight Suns.

Five Characters Marvel Midnight Suns Should Add

So with Marvel Midnight Suns, we have another great-looking Marvel game. It’s made by Firaxis, the developers behind XCom, the popular tactical sci-fi role-playing series. They’re known not only for their deep turn-based strategy combat but also for their punishing permadeath and RPG mechanics. While we shouldn’t expect to see permadeath […]
