Dynamite to Publish New Ongoing Series Featuring Chaos! Character Purgatori

Do you guys remember comic books in the ’90s? The hair! The banter! The WRIST CUFFS. Not only did the ’90s bring about the creation of many superheroes (and some super interesting crotch detail), but it also brought about the birth of company Chaos! Comics, a line so quintessentially ’90s they unfortunately only lasted until about 2003. Publisher of many horror/comic nerd’s dream, such as comics featuring bands like Megadeath and wrestlers from the WWE,…

REVIEW: “The Manhattan Projects #21” Space Dog Lives!

REVIEW: “The Manhattan Projects #21” Space Dog Lives!

Writer: Jonathan Hickman Artist: Ryan Browne Publisher: Image Comics $3.50 Over its now 21 issues, Manhattan Projects has progressed from an intriguing concept (what if the Manhattan Project was only the beginning of covert scientific exploration?) to an increasingly absurdist alternate reality (what if Oppenheimer ATE HIS OWN TWIN BROTHER!). Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra have created an absolutely bonkers comic book, where Albert Einstein is a vodka-pounding maniac, FDR is a rogue artificial intelligence,…

REVIEW: “Winterworld #1” Frostbitten

Written by: Chuck Dixon Art by: Butch Guice and Diego Rodriguez IDW Publishing $3.99 Full disclosure: I haven’t read the original Winterworld graphic novel this issue was my introduction to writer Chuck Dixon’s snowy, post-apocalyptic world. Dixon, with the help of artist Butch Guice and colour artist Diego Rodriguez, is shoveling off Winterworld to reach a new audience of readers through IDW Publishing. The result is a debut comic that comes off a bit too…

REVIEW: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time #1” Dinosaurs, Dude!

REVIEW: “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time #1” Dinosaurs, Dude!

Written by: Paul Allor Art by: Ross Campbell & Bill Crabtree IDW Publishing $3.99 You know how the saying goes, you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Well, I guess nobody told IDW Publishing that because they’ve bolstered their line-up with yet another fantastic TMNT title. While the main series is tackling more serious drama, it seems that Turtles in Time is going to be a mini-series content to be a fun romp…

REVIEW: “Alex & Ada #7” Tainted, Synthetic Love

REVIEW: “Alex & Ada #7” Tainted, Synthetic Love

Written by: Sarah Vaughn and Jonathan Luna Art by: Jonathan Luna Image Comics $2.99 Alex & Ada is a really special comic. It excels not on the strength of its over-the-top visuals, not on the number of pouches per costume, not on the incredible superhuman abilities of its protagonists, not on a diabolical villain hell-bent on world domination. It excels on a few simple truths; that you will empathize with the characters and through that…

An Interview with Lumberjanes Writer Grace Ellis in a Cabin in the Woods on Top of a California Mountain

An Interview with Lumberjanes Writer Grace Ellis in a Cabin in the Woods on Top of a California Mountain

The minute I finally stepped off my rickety shuttle bus onto solid dirt and into the freezing night air of the California mountain campground after what had been a nearly hour-long ascension up steep mountainous roads, it finally dawned on me how long it had been since I had actually been camping. Like, REALLY camping—deep in the woods, watch out for bears, did it seriously just start snowing kind of camping. Of course this wasn’t…

Microwave Review: “The Walking Dead #128” Is This Too Good To Be True?

Microwave Review: “The Walking Dead #128” Is This Too Good To Be True?

Note: SPOILERS for the issue follow. I’ve said before that my interest in post-apocalyptic stories varies according to what the characters are trying to accomplish. When there’s a set goal I have something to invest in. The simple continuing survival of characters isn’t really a particularly stimulating prospect to me since I see most post-apocalyptic worlds as not worth living in (this must sound quite strange to some, but for me – once you go…

ADVANCE REVIEW: “Sex Criminals #6” Under Arrest

ADVANCE REVIEW: “Sex Criminals #6” Under Arrest

Author: Matt Fraction Artist: Chip Zdarsky Color Flatting: Becka Kinzie Publisher: Image Comics I knew when I began reading this issue of Sex Criminals I was in for an interesting ride. It’s not your normal story. Well, it’s not what people expect, especially if they’re not immersed in the comic book culture. In fact I’ve had two people ask me about the story so far, and I found it’s not the easiest thing to explain…

ADVANCE REVIEW: “Fatale #23” Sexy Space Noir

ADVANCE REVIEW: “Fatale #23” Sexy Space Noir

Writer: Ed Brubaker Artist: Sean Phillips Color: Elizabeth Breitweiser Publisher: Image Comics Throughout Fatale’s now twenty-three issue run, Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips have pretty tastefully navigated the sexual aspects of a book ostensibly about the prettiest woman in the world. Our titular Fatale is the complete opposite of the objectified negative stereotype often associated with superhero comics gone wild. Josephine is powerful, assertive, and almost always in control of the action. In fact, through…
