Archie Sets Halloween Launch for JUGHEAD: THE HUNGER Ongoing

Things are going to get more than a little hairy for Jughead. The Jughead: The Hunger one-shot was a great success for Archie. The publisher announced today that they’re going back to the well and launching a new ongoing series under the same name. The horror-skewed series looks to recapture the same flair and flavor under writer Frank Tieri, who returns for a second run. Tieri also penned the one-shot series, and has said that…

REVIEW: Bloodshot’s Day Off #1 – The Last Full Measure of Devotion

REVIEW: Bloodshot’s Day Off #1 – The Last Full Measure of Devotion

Independence Day has just passed as this review is published, and amongst all the cookouts and festivals and fireworks the 4th of July is also a time (as so many American holidays are) to reflect upon the importance of duty to one’s country. The great American experiment has often been kept alive by the sacrifice of those who answer a call to serve. They do so for many reasons, and not always are they nobly…

REVIEW: Batman #26 – Taking Sides, Crossing Lines

REVIEW: Batman #26 – Taking Sides, Crossing Lines

Writer Tom King certainly can’t be accused of being unambitious in his aims for the Dark Knight. After ending issue #24 with the massive twist of Batman proposing marriage to Catwoman, he followed that up with kicking off a massive ongoing storyline called “The War of Jokes & Riddles.” If you liked issue #25’s opening chapter, then you’re going to enjoy Batman #26, which does it job in raising the stakes of the conflict and…

REVIEW: The Wild Storm #5 – Daemons, Cosmonauts and Redemption

REVIEW: The Wild Storm #5 – Daemons, Cosmonauts and Redemption

With The Wild Storm #5, writer Warren Ellis continues the engrossing slow burn that has defined this series so far, and that continues to be no bad thing at all, given how rich the world he’s creating is. If you’re looking for a series that takes seriously the concept of creating a super-hero universe for a realistic modern world (as opposed to thinking that just means being grim and bleak) then you should look no…

ADVANCE REVIEW – The Death of Stalin: The Comedy of Tyranny

ADVANCE REVIEW – The Death of Stalin: The Comedy of Tyranny

Totalitarian regimes have, oddly enough, provided the best fodder for political comedy and satire. There’s something about the absurdity of living under brutality couched and protected by beauracracy that requires only the slightest nudge to tip into full on comedy. And through the years, we’ve seen satire used as a powerful weapon against the power of the state. From political cartoons, to films that took aim at fascism like Ernst Lubitch’s “To Be or Not…
