Seven Secrets #2 Review: Both Unique and Oddly Familiar

Seven Secrets #1 introduced a world of warriors and the secrets that they protect with their lives. Writer Tom Taylor kicked off the first issue with a script that over-explained its concept while delivering the story through narration that felt oddly familiar. Does the second issue pick up steam? Seven Secrets #2 has a very unique […]

We Only Find Them When They're Dead #1 Review: Original & Beautiful

It looks like Al Ewing has been cooking up something on the creator-owned side while also running Marvel's major summer event, Empyre, which saw the Cotati wage war on Earth with pretty much every major Marvel character tasked with defending it. We Only Find Them When They're Dead #1, Ewing's first-ever creator-owned series, boasts a concept that's almost […]

We Only Find Them When Theyre Eight Bells Dead

We Only Find Them When They're Eight Bells Dead

Unlike normal chiming clocks, the strikes of a ship's bell do not match the number of the hour. Instead, there are eight bells, one for each half-hour of a four-hour watch. In the age of sailing, watches were timed with a 30-minute hourglass. Bells would be struck every time the glass was turned, and in […]

Boom Studios Really Wants Mega Man to be the New Power Rangers

Boom Studios Really Wants Mega Man to be the New Power Rangers

In 2015, Boom Studios announced they'd picked up the license for Power Rangers. Expectations were understandably… low.  I remember meeting up with Eric Stephenson at San Diego Comic Con and mutually shaking out heads as we passed by some promotion for it. And this is from a man who used to write Youngblood spin-offs – […]
