REVIEW: The One Hand #1

The One Hand #1 offers an opening issue that grabs you by the throat and never lets go.  A subtly written story, twisting back and forth on itself, never quite being what it seems,...

Creepshow #5

REVIEW: Creepshow #5

After the highs of Creepshow #4, the follow up issue falls back to the mean. Both stories in Creepshow #5, rather surprisingly, rely heavily on the theme of comic books – which is either...

REVIEW: Bloodrik #1 by Andrew Krahnke

A first issue of a comic has a lot of heavy lifting to do, should the writer choose.  One option some writers take is to get the backstory out of the way, leaving room...
