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. That is why Starhenge, Book One: The Dragon & The Boar #1 is such an intriguing concept: it shows Sharp trying without limitations and what comes out of this approach is quite interesting. Think of Terminator meets King Arthur.


There’s Something Wrong with Patrick Todd #1

As we’ve previously noted, AfterShock Comics consistently produces intriguing material, making them one of the most exciting comic book publishers in the market today. In a comic book business perceived as too homogeneous, these people always manage to come up with new, exciting concepts or, at the very least, provide a new spin on old, established cliches. A bit of the latter is what we find in the first issue of Ed Brisson’s There’s Something Wrong with Patrick Todd.


Prodigy: The Icarus Society #1

Mark Millar is perhaps one of the most influential creator-owned comic book writers, and despite years of illustrious success with Marvel and DC Comics, he has demonstrated that you can break away from the Big Two and build a tremendous career on your own. The man has an abundance of incredibly successful projects, now he is coming back to one of his creations with the first issue of Prodigy: The Icarus Society.


Mind MGMT: Bootleg #1

Dark Horse Comics is one of those comic book companies that have managed to expand a lot over the years, as a result, has managed to give us a lot of great, fascinating products that have had a lasting impression on the comic book world. So, whenever they come up with a new premise, it is always interesting to see what they have in store for us. And the first issue of Mind MGMT: Bootleg is certainly a good read in that particular regard.


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. It’s a bit of a double-edged sword. Regardless, when done well, it can have an impact on the reader and even change the characters involved in a very notorious manner. The first issue of The Variants, with Jessica Jones as the leading character, is an important example of the latter.
