News and Reviews

Book of Shadows #1

Valiant Comics have had a run of ups and downs in recent years, with a particular uneven nature to their work that has been a bit of an issue for them lately. Having said that, they have also established a niche audience that is very devoted to their work, and the first issue of the Book of Shadows series should be a sort of reward for them in that particular regard, even though they are no longer in the prime of the Jim Shooter-led era of the early 1990s.

Starhenge, Book One: The Dragon & The Boar #1

Liam Sharp is one of the most underrated comic book artists of his generation and his work has been consistent over the years, so there is no surprise that he has decided to try his luck with some creator-owned stuff in the process.

Batman #125

Chip Zdarsky has been one of the finest comic book writers in the last couple of years, with his Daredevil run being some of the best in the business in the previous decade or so. There was therefore a lot of justifiable excitement and, of course, a lot of expectation when he was granted the opportunity to assume the Batman moniker. But how did he do in his debut appearance in the Dark Knight series? Let’s investigate.

The Variants #1

The multiverse in comic books has been a trope that has proven to be quite useful for countless writers, but it has also generated a lot of contradictions and many cases of storytelling.
