ADVANCE REVIEW: Nailbiter #6 – Killer Filler

ADVANCE REVIEW: Nailbiter #6 – Killer Filler

Written by: Joshua Williamson Art by: Mike Henderson Published by: Image Comics $2.99 As far as filler issues go – and make no mistake, this is a filler issue – this was one that was thankfully easy to tolerate. “Tolerate” is kind of a loaded word and I only mean some of the negative connotation that comes with it. As a rule I’m not a huge fan of these types of issues; the kind that…

ADVANCE REVIEW: “C.O.W.L. #5”

ADVANCE REVIEW: “C.O.W.L. #5”

Writters: Kyle Higgins and Alec Siegel Artist: Rod Reis Publisher: Image Comics $3.50 With every passing issue C.O.W.L. feels more and more like a comic that is the child of the dark ‘80s comics whose grim and gritty stories have influenced many titles of today. From the nihilistic tone of Watchmen to the uncertain, and somewhat begrudging saviour that is Batman in The Dark Knight Returns, these comics expressed a darker, angst-ridden outlook that the…

After the widely panned appearance of the Merc With a Mouth in 2009’s Wolverine: Origins, fan outcry for a standalone Deadpool movie reached a new low.

ADVANCE REVIEW: “The Life After #3” Derivative Derivatives

Written by: Joshua Hale Fialkov Art by: Gabo Publisher: Oni Press $3.99 With “The Life After #3” writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Gabo have solidified their book in more ways than one. The much needed exposition we get in this chapter is brief but wonderfully helpful in showing us more of the series’s bizarre world.

ADVANCE REVIEW: “Artifacts #39: The First Darkness” Great First Effort

Last year, Top Cow Productions made industry headlines when they announced their first ever open submission talent hunt.

The first offering comes in this week’s “Artifacts #39” and…
