Review: WILL EISNER’S THE SPIRIT: THE CORPSE-MAKERS #1

When I see the name Francesco Francavilla attached to title, I expect a lot from it. I expect the best the medium as to offer. Will Eisner’s The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers #1, is beyond my expectations. Francavilla, just might, be Eisner reincarnated. Seriously, he might have summoned dark forces to suck Eisner’s soul from the afterlife and have it take …

Review: Battlestar Galactica #1

Dynamite’s Battlestar Galactica #1 is one of those first issues which expects the reader to come in to the property with a certain amount of previous knowledge. This might work well if it was an adaptation based on the more recent SyFy series, but this comic is s spin-off of the older series from the late 70s. Granted, it was …

Review: Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues

You either enjoy motion comics or you don’t. Simple as that. Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues is the latest pen and ink heroine to grace the medium. While I’m a fan of the sometimes jerky form of animation, I know many have a deep annoyance for it. I don’t get it. It’s bringing the art you love to life, in …

Review: The Six Million Dollar Man: Fall of Man #1

Let me preface this review by letting you know that I am not a fan of the recent trend of updating, rebooting, or just generally screwing around with TV shows I used to watch as a kid. I avoided Starsky and Hutch, Charlie’s Angels, Inspector Gadget, The A-Team, and their ilk. That being said, I was pretty excited when I …

Comic Book Review: Army of Darkness-Furious Road

What do you get when you cross writer Nancy A Collins with artist Kewber Baal? A badass mamajama is what. Army of Darkness-Furious Road is an action packed funny bone. Everything from a trigger happy Nun to a flying, well, I don’t even know what that was. Set in a city (that makes sense when you see it) lol.  AoD FR …

Comic Review: The Twilight Zone: 1959

So, “The Twilight Zone: 1959,” eh? I’m not even going to start with any flowery language to try to dress up how I feel about this book—no nostalgic personal story, no frills. I’m just gonna say it: As a huge fan of The Twilight Zone, this book totally pissed me off. These three words—The Twilight Zone—have a very specific set …

Comic Book Review: Shaft: Imitation of Life

He’s a complicated man, that no one understands but……well, you know the rest.  Wait! You don’t know the rest?  WTF? Shaft my damies. Everyone should know who he is.  It was a TV show and a movie for fuck’s sake. The late great Isaac Hayes made a song. Anyway, Dynamite Comics has authorized this amazing first issue of the one …

Comic Book Review: Cage Hero #4

Holy crap!  So much going on in this new issue of Cage Hero by Ian Parker. I’m afraid to say too much, because most anything I say, will give the plot away. I will just say this. Wow!  I’m so excited to see the Heroes in action and for an amazing cause and what the hell is a LHC doing …
