So what have you been reading this week?

The original Youngblood, as seen from the far future of Prophet, Rob Liefeld redrawn by Simon Roy. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will make jokes about future anatomy looking no more ridiculous, but rather, enjoy its subtlety… I always suspected teachers meetings went something like this, from today's Wolverine And The X-Men.

Countdown to the Eisners – Best Continuing Series

Cameron Hatheway writes; I've always found the following category to be a little tricky; a continuing series means one that has been around for more than a year, right? Because if it's still relatively new, what's keeping a great series from sweeping both Best Continuing Series and Best New Series? This year's crop of contenders […]

Cammy's Covers – Fatale To Wonder Woman

Cameron Hatheway writes; Fatale #14 by Sean Phillips Why did it have to be toothy Cthulu faces? I hate toothy Cthulu faces!

Cammy's Covers – Fatale To Rocketeer

Cameron Hatheway looks at the covers of comics. So you don't have to. Fatale #9 by Sean Phillips Fifty Shades of Green…and Tentacles (Now a New York Times Best-Seller!). Sean Phillips does a marvelous job setting-up a creepy tone with this cover. The color choices alone are spectacular, for the red jacket really pops on […]

Review: Fatale #7 – A Fleshed Out Tour

Louie Falcetti writes for Bleeding Cool Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips don't have to prove anything to anybody. They've produced the best crime comics of the last decade with Criminal, they've done their own unique brand of pulp aged super-villainy with Incognito and now they're spinning a horror tale that's quickly making a name for itself […]
