Melissa Joan Hart hang up your witch's hat and make some room for my new favorite Sabrina. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina #8 is here and it's a wild ride from start to finish. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been a series of page-turning issues since day one and #8 is no exception. The […]

Archie Comics Double Digest #281 Review: Meet Uncle Roy

Another day, another Archie Digest. This time we're taking a look at Archie Comics Double Digest #281. The first thing to note about this particular digest is that it includes the new story, "It's All Relative" focusing on Archie's uncle Roy. It's a fun, short little romp with Archie's extended family though the plot is […]

Dark Ark #1 Review: Monsters Come Flooding In

It's safe to say that most know the story of Noah sent to build an ark and fill it with two of each kind of animal. But what about the mythical creatures of the world? The goblins, vampries, naga, and yes, even unicorns? In Dark Ark, we meet the man who is tasked with saving all […]

Marvel Comics Digest – Avengers Review: How A Team Was Formed

Previously, I reviewed the first Marvel Digest and I wasn't impressed. The stories were a mess of inconsistencies and felt more random than a concentrated volume. What was supposed to be a highlight of Spider-Man as a character fell flat. So how does the second digest — this time focusing on the Avengers — fare? It's […]

Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27

Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27 Review: Get To Class!

School is almost back in session and we've got Archie's Funhouse Back To School Annual #27 to ease you back into another year of football games, pop quizzes, and…psychic abilities? Sure, we'll go with that. The slice-of-life comics featured in this digest are surprisingly soothing and genuinely enjoyable. They start off with the students of Riverdale […]

'Jem and The Holograms Vol. 5: Truly Outrageous' Review: A Stellar Collection

In Jem and the Holograms Vol.5: Truly Outrageous, the Holograms decide to take a working holiday in sunny Hawaii, along with new band member Raya. But tragedy strikes when it turns out their neighbors are none other than the Stingers. Things get awkward as Jem is stuck repeatedly turning down Riot, putting up with the constant […]

Wynonna Earp: Season Zero #1 Review: Delving into the Past

Wynonna Earp: Season Zero is the new five-issue tie-in to the hit Syfy show Wynonna Earp. Wynonna Earp: Season Zero isn't quite a prequel, though the main focus hinges on our titular character's shady past. Instead, it's meant as supplemental material for the show, answering some burning questions that don't quite fit in the main storyline. […]

From The NYAFF: 'Mrs. B., A North Korean Woman' Review

Often when the topic of North Korea is the focus of a documentary, it focuses mainly on the journey out. Dramatic, harrowing escapes are recounted along with the highlighted struggles of a population held hostage. Though this is the story of a woman successfully escaping from North Korea, Mrs. B., A North Korean Woman is […]

'Jane' Review From The NYAFF: A Vibrant Character Barely Used

Jane is marketed as the story of a young woman abandoned by her boyfriend who finds refuge with a transgender woman named Jane. What actually occurs is a lot more complex than that. The style of this movie is incredibly fragmented — a stylistic choice paired with a cyclical plot that just misses the mark. […]

Dragon Age: Knight Errant #3 Review: Less Action Than You'd Expect

You'd think that with wars constantly being waged and darkspawn roaming the land, Dragon Age: Knight Errant would be a lot more action-packed — but you'd be incorrect. That said, there's nothing really wrong with this book. The art, done by Fernando Heinz Furukawa, is solid, but nothing breathtaking — a little bit of a letdown […]

'Jem and The Holograms: Infinite' Review: More Than a Little Pizzazz

Those who were worried we'd seen the last of Jem with the end of Jem and the Holograms, despair ye not. The girls are back and ready for a new adventure in Jem and The Holograms: Infinite, a miniseries running in tandem with The Misfits: Infinite. Jem and the Holograms: Infinite has a gorgeous color palette, courtesy of […]

Kull Eternal #1 Review: Grab Your Sword And A Machine Gun

I think we all feel a little nostalgia towards a simpler time in comics, when men wore little more than loincloths and oversized weapons, and every woman was a witch bent on seducing and destroying each mortal she came across. What, no? Just me?   Well, you should read Kull Eternal anyway. Taking inspiration from the […]

Marvel Comics Digest Spider-Man Review: Bites Off More Than It Can Chew

Leading up to the release of Spider-Man Homecoming next month, Marvel is releasing a bunch of stuff featuring our favorite friendly neighborhood superhero. June 7th marks the release of the first of two Marvel Digests: one Spider-Man, one Avengers. These Archie-styled comic collections are meant to offer various influential and classic stories that you may have […]

Ravina The Witch Review: One Man's Trash Is Another Man's Treasure

"Once upon a time there was a woman who lived in a garbage dump…" Thus begins the strange tale of Ravina, in Ravina the Witch?, about a young girl who grows up among garbage and crows. Don't let Junko Mizuno's art fool you — despite the deceptively childlike illustrations and the fairytale introduction, there is plenty […]
