Review: Batgirl #13 – Bats and Cats…Living Together…Mass Hysteria!

Batgirl #13 acts as a bit of a breather before a new arc kicks in next issue, but it also serves as a nice jumping-on point for any readers out there curious about giving writer Hope Larson‘s celebrated take on the character a try. It’s a done-in-one issue, and these kinds of issues typically tend to be either disposable basic adventures or sharply introspective character studies. While I’m not sure Batgirl #13 is going to…

REVIEW: Faith and the Future Force #1 – Fans to the Future!

Valiant’s popular super-hero Faith is an infectious character for anyone who considers themselves a nerd for comics or science fiction or really any kind of genre, as the character shares the same fannish glee as the readers.  This is one of the reasons why, aside from the the way the character rejects the typical body norm for super-heroes, Faith has resonated so strongly with fans. So, an issue like Faith and the Future Force #1,…

ADVANCE REVIEW: Turok #1 – Engaging Characters, Familiar Action

ADVANCE REVIEW: Turok #1 – Engaging Characters, Familiar Action

When Dynamite Entertainment launched its “Sovereign” line of titles recently, featuring characters licensed from the old Gold Key comics, they opted for a bold and risky strategy. “The Sovereigns” title would debut first, and it and subsequent titles would feature back-up stories that would introduce readers to the assorted characters soon to be heading up their own titles. It was bold move, and Turok #1 shows both the benefit and the drawbacks of that strategy….

REVIEW: Justice League of America #10 – Careful What You Wish For

REVIEW: Justice League of America #10 – Careful What You Wish For

Justice League of America so far has set itself apart from the main League title by revolving around Batman’s attempt to form an effective team from his hand-selected team of outsiders, rookies and, in the case of Lobo, outlaws. So far, the concept has yet to really effectively gel, despite some considerable flashes of brilliance. Justice League of America #10, the opening instalment of the “Curse of the KingButcher” arc, isn’t any less uneven an…

REVIEW: Bug! – The Adventures of Forager #3: Atlas Bugged

REVIEW: Bug! – The Adventures of Forager #3: Atlas Bugged

You know what people rarely try for anymore? Zaniness. Back in the Silver and Bronze Age of comics, stories could actually be zany from time to time. Creators often totally eschewed realism or even believability in favor of over-the-top bombast, insane concepts and goofy comedy at a breakneck pace. And like the issues that preceded it, Bug! – The Adventures of Forager #3 totally embraces zany, and we’re all the better for it, as we’re…

ADVANCE REVIEW: Normandy Gold #2 – Sex and Aggression

If there are two classic eras in all of American film, they’d be the 1930s studio system and the first half of the 1970s. Normandy Gold #2 sure as hell doesn’t have much in common with the first era, but it’s a child of the second, the era that gave us “The Godfather,” “Chinatown,” “Mean Streets,” “Shaft,” “Deep Throat,” and “Taxi Driver.” The era that gave us the grittiest of crime films and dramas that…
