Comic Review: Bodies #4 – The Longharvest Is Coming!

After I finish each issue, I think that I’ve almost got Bodies, published by DC’s Vertigo, figured out.

Preacher Volume 1: Gone to Texas – I’m a Horrible Person. Or, Desensitized to Violence

Preacher Volume 1: Gone to Texas – I’m a Horrible Person. Or, Desensitized to Violence

Before I start, I’d like to say that I’m pretty new to comics so when I set out to read Preacher (recommended and lent to me from a friend who reads a lot of comics) I didn’t know anything about Garth Ennis, so I can’t comment on how Preacher fits into his career or the […]

DC Comics’ Constantine and Gotham – Details

DC Comics’ Constantine and Gotham – Details

With the success of shows like Arrow and Agents of Shield, the big comic book companies have started to realize that there is a ton of potential to serialized television dramas that either explore the universe that exists in the comic books or at the very least the expanded canon. Last September, DC announced they […]

Graphic Novel Review: American Vampire

Graphic Novel Review: American Vampire

I don’t know why it took me so long to pluck this Graphic Novel out of the big stack I have on my desk waiting for review. It was wrapped in plastic of all things, and the pedigree of people who worked on it are top notch. Maybe I’m just vampired out.

Unknown Soldier #21:  A Brief History Lesson of the AK47

If you are not reading this comic, kick yourself.  Then go get this issue, #21.  Sure, Unknown Soldier is sadly being canceled at #25  but that is no reason not to pick up this issue, even if it is this issue alone that you ever buy. Grab this issue for the blending of the history […]

 

Area 10

Area 10

You should be aware, if you were wondering like me, that the title to this book has nothing to do with Area 51 and aliens. Instead, this Vertigo Crime novel’s title, Area 10,  refers to an area of the brain often the target for trepanning.  On a sliding scale of unreality, this crime story is […]

 

Hellblazer: Pandemonium

Hellblazer:  Pandemonium

This is a really, really late review.  Part of the problem is that this hardback is $24.99.  The other is the premise of the story:  Everyone’s favorite aging bad-boy magician from England heads to war-torn Iraq to deal with…  Yeah, that is when I got turned off too.  A topical John Constatine story in Iraq?  […]
