Comic Reviews: Wasted Space and Her Infernal Descent!

COMIC REVIEWS!

STL076373Wasted Space #1 (Vault Comics)

Sci-fi comics are a dime a dozen these days, so it’s hard for one to hit the stands these days and really stand out. Luckily though, Vault Comics’ Wasted Space is just one of those comics, as it takes the futuristic setting of Blade Runner (and a little bit of Alien), but focuses on something that’s often overlooked in science fiction: religion. That difference makes the Michael Moreci and Hayden Sherman debut issue really stand out. Read the rest of this entry

Comic Reviews: Brothers Dracul and Crude!

I’m naturally interested in anything that has to do with the legend of Dracula, so Aftershock Comics’ new series Brothers Dracul piqued my interest. While many comics about the infamous Son of the Dragon focus on his vampiric mythology, the Cullen Bunn and Mirko Colak series instead focuses on the actual historical figure Vlad Dracul, and his life as a young boy with his brother and father.

Comic Reviews: Nightwing and Backways!

With writer Tim Seely moving over to Green Lanterns, it’s only fitting that the writer behind that series, Sam Humphries, moves over to Nightwing. While I’ve enjoyed the DC Rebirth run when it first started, recent issues of Dick Grayson’s adventures have become a little stale, so I was happy to see that the title would be getting some fresh blood, and man, this is great new beginning for the character.

Comic Reviews: Rumble and Monstro Mechanica!

After a pretty lengthy hiatus, Rumble is back. And while I’d like to say that the John Arcudi and James Harren series returns with a vengeance, that’s not exactly the case. For starters, Harren has been replaced by David Rubin, and Rumble #1 serves as more of a catch up than new starting point. But at the same time, it’s good to have Rathraq back on the comic shelves.

Comic Reviews: Dark Ark and Gasolina!

We all know the story of Noah’s Ark, but what if there was another ark that carried the worst kinds of monsters into the new world? That’s the gist of Dark Ark, the latest comic series from Cullen Bunn and Juan Doe. A concept so good that you can’t believe you haven’t seen it before, Dark Ark has to set up a lot of story, but the potential for another great comic is definitely here in this opening issue.

Comic Review: Babyteeth #2!

The opening issue of Babyteeh sure had a lot of potential. Despite the usual “girl gives birth to the Antichrist” trope, Donny Cates and Garry Brown’s series had an interesting narrative system and compelling lead character to help set up the story. But one thing that was missing was the fleshing out of the world around Sadie. While we got to meet her, her child, and her immediate family, there wasn’t enough of the larger story to really make an impact. Luckily for us, Cates and Brown address that in issue two, and bring in some truly fantastic world building to the Babyteeth story. Read the rest of this entry

Babyteeth-01-cvr-1-600x910Babyteeth #1 (Aftershock Comics)

Aftershock Comics has been making quite the name for themselves lately. While they don’t have the volume of titles like Image or Dark Horse, they’ve been acquiring the kind of talent that definitely makes you stop and take notice. Their latest series, Babyteeth, is no exception. Co-created by God Country and Redneck writer Donny Cates, Babyteeth is a surprisingly sweet take on the old “girl gives birth to the Antichrist” story that we’ve seen plenty of times before in horror movies.
