Snotgirl #1 Review It's safe to say there's been some hype behind Image Comics Snotgirl #1. Bryan Lee O'Malley and Leslie Hung have created stylized book for the new ages. I only say that because I'm quickly becoming old, to millennials, probably. My great intro already introduced you to Snotgirl #1 and my skills in word play gave you a few clues as to just what Snotgirl is … [Read more...]
Scooby Apocalypse #1. Rorld Rone Rong.
Scooby Apocalypse #1 review Well DC Comics has done it, they've made Scooby-Doo somewhat applicable to the newest generation of horror, sci-fi loving ne'er-do-wells, Scooby Apocalypse #1 is here.

Penny Dreadful #1. New Medium.
Penny Dreadful #1 review As many of you may know Penny Dreadful is a series that just started its third season on Showtime, even this I knew.

We're talking popular pop icons like … [Read more...]
Swamp Thing #1. The Classic Touch.
Swamp Thing #1 review DC Comics did it, I don't know how they did, but they did it, they got Len Wein, the creator of Swamp Thing himself to come back to the marsh and write Swamp Thing again.

Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! #1. Life in Retail
Patsy Walker, A.K.A Hellcat! #1 review Yes, yes, believe it, Hellcat has her own comic book again! But instead of just calling it Hellcat they decided to go all bonkers and give it the enormous title of: Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat! #1 (don't forget the exclamation point). Crazy right, well Marvel knows what they're doing because the title matches the tone of the book … [Read more...]
