In Comic Books, Image, REVIEW by Regan Lorie3 Comments

References to and versions of the old classic folk tune “Big Rock Candy Mountain” have surfaced in many forms over the decades.

You have to be at least a little weird to be a fan of Ryan Browne’s work, I’m convinced. I speak from experience. So naturally I was geeked to hear of a new post-God Hates Astronauts Browne-Charles Soule collab. Fresh from his stint as narrator of Browne’s absurdist, surreal-as-fuck superhero epic, writer Soule rejoins forces with the artist for a …

Normally fantasy/superhero stories tend to approach themes of mental and …
