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,...

REVIEW: Conan the Barbarian #7 by Jim Zub (W) and Doug Braithwaite (A)

When we last left Conan, he and his surviving comrades from the Gloryhounds were celebrating their narrow escape from the temple of Bel, God of Thieves. After a night of carousing, Conan and lissome...
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...
Universal Monsters Dracula

REVIEW: Universal Monsters: Dracula #3 by James Tynion IV (W) and Martin Simmonds (A)

REVIEW: Creepshow #3

In Creepshow #3, we have two fetching stories that will linger long under your skin (that itch, as story one, Eternity, Eternity, Eternity, reveals, may be a race of long lived locusts).  The motto...

REVIEW: Conan the Barbarian #5 by Jim Zub (W) and Doug Braithwaite (A)

Conan the Barbarian #5 marks a promising start for the second story arc.

REVIEW: Deviant #1 by James Tynion (W) and Joshua Hixson(A)

Deviant #1 written by James Tynion IV, art by Joshua Hixson, is, on the surface, a perfectly delightful slasher comic (delightful in the sense it is pitch perfect horror).  All the elements (some which...
