Reviews: Grayson, Batgirl, Sabrina

Grayson #3 It only took three regular issues and a one-shot for Grayson to become DC’s best book, bar-none. The New 52’s stable has been getting increasingly stronger, but nothing is anywhere near the level of craftsmanship found […]


Does anything ever happen in the bayou that doesn't involve weapons and revenge?

Everybody’s Dying in ‘Red Hood and the Outlaws’ #35

According to DC, this is the issue where Jason Todd finds out he’s the only member of the Outlaws who isn’t on drugs. And sure, that sounds terrible. We can all agree, a team full of […]


Dead demonic deer derps dramatically! Film at 11.

Darkness that Appeals: ‘Wytches’ Author Scott Snyder

Who’s the best writer in comics? Of course it’s a ridiculous question to ask. Writing is one of the most purely subjective art forms there is, so anyone trying to make a case for the […]


Batman should also wear an outfit that shows his naked chest. Sales would go up. Ladies love them some Batmoobs.

Gotham Goes Wild in ‘Batman Eternal’ #27

The Batman Eternal train is halfway to its destination, and boy is it a fun ride. If you don’t believe us, take a gander at the cover below. A kickass battlesuit, some wanton property destruction, capable […]


Good Friday took an ugly turn pretty fast.

Scott Allie’s Commentary on ‘Baltimore: The Wolf and the Apostle’ #1

It’s October! And what better way to spook the bejeez out of ourselves than with a good ol’ fashioned werewolf yarn? No better way, that’s what!  As part of Dark Horse’s “13 Days of Hellboy” […]


Of course modern animal rights extremists use a pneumatic hammer to take apart the capitalist hegemony painlessly.

Review: ‘Critical Hit’ #1 is a Knockout

With Critical Hit, writer Matt Miner returns to the world he created in his Kickstarter-funded series Liberator and its sequel, Salvation of the Innocents (a two-issue collaboration with the legendary hardcore band Earth Crisis). Jeanette and […]


Five minutes after finishing that painting, Edward Hopper burned the whole place to the ground, saying "Reality could never match the perfection of art."

Find the Answers in ‘American Vampire: Second Cycle’ #5

Vampires have been done to death, and by nature, after death. Or maybe just undeath. Look, the taxonomy is beyond us. Or to put it in vampire-speak, it remains unknown, for we have not tasted the […]


If you have enemies with names like Lord Death Man and Professor Gorilla, you're living a way cooler life than anybody you know.

Batman: The Jiro Kuwata Batmanga

If there’s one thing the ’90s taught us, it’s that kids just love Batman and manga. And the ’00s. And the ’10s. Actually…it may just be that everybody, everywhere, forever, loves Batman and manga. We’d […]


This...this is gonna be a good'un.

“Star-Spangled War Stories Featuring G.I. Zombie: Future’s End” #1

…Man. Look at it up there. That is the longest title we have ever seen on a comic book. But it’s from Justin Gray & Jimmy Palmiotti, so it’s got to be aces, right? And […]


#@^& yeah, "Love & Rockets" shirt!

Hidden Influences: ‘Sex and Violence’ Writer Jimmy Palmiotti

We’re unabashed fans of comic writer Jimmy Palmiotti around these parts (and what would we have to be abashed about? Nuthin’! The man was story consultant on Injustice: Gods Among Us for crying out loud), so […]
