Get A Big Bang Out Of Thunder Girl and Knight Watchman Comics

By Christopher Helton One of the things that brings together the readers, and writers, of this site is the fact that we love comics.

If Wayward Isnt The Next Saga It Will Be A Damn Criminal Shame

If Wayward Isn't The Next Saga, It Will Be A Damn Criminal Shame

By Christopher Helton I want to get the hyperbole out of the way at the beginning of this: If Wayward, the new Image comic from Jim Zub and Steve Cummings isn't the next Saga, it will be a damn criminal shame. This is one of the most engaging comics that I have read in a […]

A Fast Paced Demonic Thriller In The First Issue Of The Devilers

A Fast Paced Demonic Thriller In The First Issue Of The Devilers

By Christopher Helton When your first complaint about a new comics is "man, that was too short" that bodes well for the issue, right?

Homage And Evolution In Infinity Man And The Forever People

By Christopher Helton Dan Didio gets a lot of grief over the management side of his work at DC Comics, but I have enjoyed his comic writing work at the company, particularly the OMAC reboot that he did with artist and collaborator Keith Giffen.

When Jack The Ripper Flashed Northstar In Hell

When Jack The Ripper Flashed Northstar In Hell

Thanks to today's Amazing X-Men #2, we all got a lovely image of the demonic hellion form of Jack The Ripper flashing Northstar in hell. And, from what it appears to be, firing hot knives at Northstar from… his urethra? Whatever is going on there, I'd rather that Ed McGuinness shielded it from view… Comics […]

Bringing Back The Zombies To Walking Dead #116

There's a common trick in popular entertainment. Taking the popular thing off the table. Relegating it. Putting the focus on something else for a while. The fans start to notice, get annoyed and start demanding its return. And demanding. And demanding. And then, after a perfectly judged amount of time you bring it back and […]

Talking To Ales Kot About Zero – Look! It Moves! by Adi Tantimedh

Adi Tantmedh writes; This week sees the first issue of ZERO from Image Comics, the new spy series by enfant terrible Ales Kot.

Another Adrian Tomine New Yorker Cover

Another Adrian Tomine New Yorker Cover

By Victoria Marsden I know it sounds strange, but ever since I saw this cover a couple of days ago it's been knocking around in the back of my head. It's a feat to be able to convey a short story with nothing more than a panel, and Tomine accomplishes just that. The plight of […]
