Godzilla: The Half Century War #1 Art and Writing by James Stokoe Review By Luke Herr Godzilla: The Half Century War is a gigantic explosion of James Stokoe art and writing which for me means giant spreads of tiny details and that is pretty dang fantastic.
Jack the Bastard and Other Stories By Micah Nathan With Illustrations By Phil Noto, Michael Allred, Russ Nicholson, and Tradd Moore Review by Luke Herr Jack the Bastard and Other Stories was a tonal shift in what I’ve been reviewing over the past few months – mostly comics. To be honest it has been some time since […]
Oy gevalt. So far in Suicide Squad, Amanda Waller’s characterization has been weak and pathetic, which has amounted to a major annoyance but not much more. This issue was CHARACTERIZATION BRUTALIZATION for our Waller, and baby, does it hurt. In related news, I wish the covers would stop showcasing Harley so hard, especially since she’s […]

Amelia Cole and the Unknow World #1 Written by Adam P. Knave and D.J. Kirkbride, Illustrated by Nick Brokenshire. Lettered by Rachel Deering Review by Ziah Grace One of the most oft-repeated writing tips is “Show, don’t tell” but Amelia Cole and the Unknown World creates an impressive first issue by doing both in a […]
The October Girl #1 Written and Illustrated by Matthew Dow Smith Reviewed by Luke Herr
