Turf #2

Turf #2

When Image sent me this Turf #2, I thought:  Cool!  Prohibition mob stuff with good art (Tommy Lee Edwards, my favorite part of Marvel 1985, does all the work, including the colors).  As it was the second issue, I went to my local comic book dealer and picked up #1.II figured I had to know […]

 

Velocity #1

Velocity #1

I’ll be honest:  I did not know that Velocity was not a new character.  Knowing that this book is a winner of Image’s Pilot Season made me think she was new.  However, she was part of Cyberforce–that team’s answer to the Flash. Opening up this book, I was stunned at the visuals.  That is reason […]

 

Invincible #73

Invincible #73

The Viltrumite War continues!  (Yes, it is required that every reviewer of this books says that.) You might have thought that after the last issue this one would also show some crazy battle as the war escalates.  I know I did.  I was wrong (again!), pleasantly surprised though.  This is a plot-driven issue of Invincible, […]

Invincible #72

Invincible #72

Brutal. That about sums up the comic book Invincible. If you aren’t familiar with Invincible, here’s a quick breakdown: Mark Grayson’s dad is a a superman-type called Omni-Man. Mark has inherited his old man’s powers and takes on the mantle of Invincible. Father and son begin to fight crime together–yea! Uh-oh, as it turns out […]

Whorin’ the Comics – 12th August 2009

It’s a great week for fans Robert Kirkman or anybody who’s a fan of Image comics, so this week I’ve decided to just focus on the great work those are doing.  I’m a big fan of the Image universe and regular readers of the column will probably notice that at least one of their comics […]
