• Batman and Robin Eternal #13

    True to its cover, Batman and Robin Eternal #13 reveals a great deal of secrets about Mother, her Children, and especially Cassandra Cain, and why she is helping Dick Grayson and the Bat-family. Scripter James Tynion and artist Marcio Takara probe deep into the mind of this silent girl,...
  • All New Wolverine #3 Review

    If there’s one thing that All New Wolverine is about, that’s family. It’s not really something that the title wears on its sleeve, but more of a quiet insistence that runs as an undercurrent throughout the story. There’s no agonizing or deliberation about how Laura sees Logan anymore. In...
  • Beauties #1 Review

    It’s not hard to build consensus around the fact that Angela Carter is the strongest and most influential voice in how we examine western fairytales, but while she is most warmly remembered for slicing them open and holding up their darkest and most patriarchal impulses up to the harsh...
  • Black Magick #3 Review

    The slow burn of Black Magick continues in its third issue although luckily no one dies or does any self-immolating like in issue one. Writer Greg Rucka and artist Nicola Scott continue to zero in on Rowan Black and her feelings as she struggles to balance her life as...
  • Black Canary #6 Review

    Truth be told, I was pretty much set on Black Canary being the best monthly title of 2015 by the third issue, but with Annie Wu’s return on interiors, there’s a very specific case to be made that no one but she, Brenden Fletcher, Lee Loughridge, and Steve Wands...
  • Jem and the Holograms #10 Review

    As the focus moves to the aftermath of Pizzazz’s accident at the climax of last issue, Rio takes center stage, giving us a wealth of insight into his identity as a journalist and the inner workings of the Misfits. This issue is an immediate jump up from the previous...
  • New Avengers #4 Review

    Teddy Altman is still King Arthur of Space, and I am still nearly beside myself in delighted and amused joy. Unfortunately, his Prince Consort Billy Kaplan (yes, really) may have been possessed by an evil Cthulhu-like space wizard from the fifth incarnation of the multiverse (we’re currently on the...
  • 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...
  • Angela: Queen of Hel #3 Review

    Marguerite Bennett continues to go wild with her signature epic-comedic style. Angela: Queen of Hel #3 overflows with classical allusions and snarky comics references and non-stop wordplay. Angela continues to battle her way through various Hel-ish trials, accompanied all the way by Sera’s non-stop wit and tongue-in-cheek narration. But all...
