About Eliot Cole

When I say that you should buy something, please understand I say that in full knowledge that the prices of comics are just flat out wrong. I'm talking to the select few with enough disposable income to actually pay $3.99 for ~20 pages, often less.

Anyway, me? I'm a generally affable chap, happy to shoot it over a pint of proper beer (that's ale to some), I read basically anything, but I've found I'm now finally learning to love the small press / self-published scene a little more, even though I'm a relative newcomer to it (10y).

Squirrel Girl Is Coming To TV And Dragging The New Warriors With Her

YES! Finally Doreen Green is making it to the small screen! Ahem, so this is a totally professional, unbiased, report on the fact that Squirrel Girl will have her own live action TV show. OK, so it'll be shared with the New Warriors (whatever) but we all see where this is going. The Freeform cable […]

Phil Jimenez And His Amazing Superfriends At WonderCon 2017

Peter S. Svensson writes for Bleeding Cool. Phil Jimenez is the nicest guy in comics. It's not just that he took the time to talk to little kids in line for his panel before it began, asking them what costume they would like to wear if they had a choice. It's not that he always […]

I'm Sorry, Could You Just Go Over That One More Time? – A Review Of Sex Criminals #16

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] This is sensationally good comicsing, and if you're not yet reading, it's a perfect start. Well, a perfect "middle," perfect "near start," I dunno. Perhaps ask Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky what the plan is for Sex Criminals, because they are taking their sweet ass time getting it to us, but they don't half deliver […]

Brand New Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Poster

Director James Gunn gave us a look at the sweet new Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 poster. A closer look at my cassette collection. — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) February 6, 2017 Here it is without all of that horrid social stuff around it, like, who leaves their toys in the boxes anyways?

Motorcycle Emptiness – The Few #1 Review

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] The Few is a pretty, but sparse, introduction to Sean Lewis and Hayden Sherman's dystopia, it's not without its faults, but at $4.99 for 43 story pages is that a decent bang for your fiver? It's at this point I'd like to let you know it's going to be my first largely critical […]

Hammill Holds All The Trump Cards (Again)

You may remember that we reported on Mark Hammill reading out Donald Trump's Meryl Streep tweets in his trademarked Joker voice … well he's at it again. A Very Special Message in Honor of Martin Luther King Day #Compassion #Tolerance #Empathy #Respect — Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) January 16, 2017 This time Hammill's attentions […]
