Comic Review: Babyteeth #2!

COMIC REVIEWS!!

book_BABYTEETH_02Babyteeth #2 (Aftershock Comics)

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

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.

After months away from the Dark Knight, superstar writer Scott Snyder has returned with All-Star Batman. Teaming Snyder with a rotating superstar artist, this series has all of the makings for something truly special. I’m a huge fan of Snyder’s run on Batman, but that run really only scratched the surface of the Dark Knight’s rogues gallery. With All-Star, Snyder’s putting the focus on Two-Face, the man who was once Harvey Dent, and with John Romita Jr. on the art for this arc, All-Star is a great return for the writer that goes into some pretty interesting places you wouldn’t expect.

 Moon Knight has been a tough character to nail lately. It seems like no matter who gets placed on the book, be they Charlie Huston, Brian Michael Bendis, or even Warren Ellis, eventually they run out of steam. In fact, some might say that the different runs on the character are just as schizophrenic as Moon Knight himself. But that hasn’t stopped Marvel from trying, and this week brings us a brand new Moon Knight series from Jeff Lemire and Greg Smallwood. And unsurprisingly, Moon Knight #1 finds Lemire and Smallwood putting their own stamp on the life and times of Marc Spector. Read the rest of this entry
