Whether they exist or not, or whether they will have an effect or not, well that's all up to Pretty Deadly. There's so much to love about Secret but I want to highlight the intentionally restricted palette, curling like smoke around the pencils, both merging and separating elements within, guiding and surprising the eye… Revival finds[...]

They're glorified shepherds. Okay, I probably wouldn't say that a lot in Pretty Deadly, but there are a distinct lack of cows,m just horses and.,. foxes. Deadly Class asks an interesting question, to which I would answer "A crap boy band from the noughties I think, who will all end up in end-of-the-pier reality TV shows before[...]

There's even more sex in the new Saga, and one of the climactic scenes may well be one of those comics that causes Apple to go all funny. Pretty Deadly gives us a Wild West equivalent of the toddler holding their breath until you do what they want. I'm sure once upon a time, I had a[...]

What happens next? Well, hopefully something like Pretty Deadly. Another example of the institutionalised misandry on the comics industry there Notice that the victims in Pretty Deadly are men, naked, prone and bleeding, with the use of the word "whore" a diversion tactic from an all female team trying to appeal to male sensibilities for a[...]
