Review: Big Trouble in Little China/Escape from New York #1

First, let me say Big Trouble in Little China/Escape from New York #1 is one the most scrumish member-berry dishes thaw crossed my palette. Jack Burton. Snake Plissken. Together. C’mon.

Advanced Review: THE CLOUD

The Cloud is absolutely beautiful. This may seem like an odd thing to say about a story set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, but it’s true. The fist image we encounter is the titular Cloud, a winged wolf the size of a horse, and his master and it’s stunning. The combination of vague strokes and hard lines creates an image which …
