Generation Hope #9 Review

Generation Hope #9 is “the one where we’re using the X-metaphor to talk about teenage gay suicide.” It's not a story where they "deal with" teenage gay suicide, of course; that would imply some sort of satisfactory resolution, if not an outright happy ending.

Hellboy: The Fury #1 Review

With two movies, a long running spin off and countless one-shots, Hellboy is the gold standard for what creator-owned comics can be when there is that perfect combination of epic storytelling and emotionally rich characters involved. Yet like many other comic fans who know of the title, I don’t read it on a regular basis. If you are like me in this respect, you need to immediately pick up Hellboy: The Fury #1.

Snaps Review

Snaps's inspiration was a box of old photos that author and artist Rebecca Kraatz found at a flea market, apparently taken during the 1940s. "I studied the unknown people in the pictures," she explains in her introduction, "often with a magnifying glass, trying to decipher their relationships with one another."

Fly #1 Review

Fly, Zenescope’s latest title, is the sleeper hit of the summer. The story unfolds through a series of flashbacks, leading the reader backwards in time, from a brutal present-day confrontation to the precise moment that is clearly at the heart of the character’s woes.

50 Girls 50 #1 Review

50 Girls 50 doesn’t try to be something it’s not. The title pretty well prepares you for what lies inside, and if this isn’t enough of a clue to what awaits the reader, then keep in mind this is Frank Cho’s new comic. Having taken on writing duties with Doug Murray, Cho turns over illustrating to his new protégée Axel Medellin.

The Tooth Review

Written by Cullen Ben and Shawn Lee, with illustrations by Matt Kindt, The Tooth stands as a perfect example of why we NEED small publishers like Oni and Red 5 Comics. It is a wonderful story, but one which defies easy categorization and clearly flies in the face of what the Big Two/Three traditionally publish.

Dungeons & Dragons #7 Review

Focusing on licenses, and “re-developing” stagnating properties, IDW has had some major success with GI Joe, Transformers, and less-mainstream-but-even-hotter Suicide Girls comic. None of these series come close to matching the fun and excitement that IDW has returned to... Dungeons & Dragons.

Rocketeer Adventures #1 Review

The Rocketeer, and its creator Dave Stevens, never really broke big in the mainstream comic culture, settling instead into its "classic indie" status. IDW hopes to change all that with Rocketeer Adventures #1.
