  • Saga #32 Review

    It’s easy to forget between bounty hunters, Lying Cats, and endless cycles of death, destruction and devastation, Saga is essentially a story about one family trying to keep it together against all odds. In Saga #32, the story gets back to that core as the focus shifts back to...
  • Pretty Deadly #7 Review

    In my review of the last issue of Pretty Deadly, I mentioned that the story immediately showed itself as a race against time once Fox made the deal to Verine that Cyrus had until the moon was full again to make it home before he took Sarah. Well, the...

    Full disclosure: I haven’t read the first runs of Young Avengers where Kate Bishop first appears. Most of my knowledge of her comes from the Matt Fraction/David Aja run of Hawkeye and the Gillen/McKelvie run of Young Avengers. This is nothing against those storylines and creators. It’s just indicative...
