Thor Wolves of the North (one-shot comic)
A tale of war, and how the gods can affect the lives of men as well as how mortals can affect men. More of a tale of savagery and realistic portrayal of magic and superstition. Not your typical Thor comic, …

Thor Wolves of the North (one-shot comic)
Remember in the early days of Thor comics when “Tales of Asgard” meant an outing of fantasy based on Norse mythology and storybooks? Well, they all kept true to their target audience which …

Dustcovers: The Collected Sandmand Covers
Dave Mckean created some great artwork for these covers. The uniqueness of these covers comes from the original idea (at the time, as editor Karen Berger comments) of not featuring Sandman at every cover; …

Dustcovers: The Collected Sandmand Covers
Dustcovers is an extraordinary (albeit incomplete) collection of Dave McKean's covers for Neil Gaiman's Sandman adult comic book series.      The works presented in this collection …

Avengers Prime
Takes place after "Siege" and is closely linked to the Ragnarok storyline that happened in the final issues of Thor during "Disassembled". I've had some issues with Bendis' …

Avengers Prime
After the events of the “Siege”, which showcased the attack of the madman Norman Osborn with his force of “Dark Avengers” and H.A.M.M.E.R. upon Asgard, home of the Norse gods …

Celluloid
Dave McKean is one of my favorite modern artists and his comic book works are astonishingly beautiful and haunting. His unique visual sensibility makes this text-less graphic (very graphic) erotica completely …

Action Comics 454: Superman's Energy Crisis
Every now and then I go through my collection to see some issues that just make me dumbfounded as to why I would own such an issue. I know that I began as a DC nut when I was a kid in the 70’s until …

Caligula (2011 Comic Book)
Let’s get one thing straight; once you see the title on this new comic series by horror writer David Lapham with art by German Nobile you should know right away that “Caligula” is not …

Daredevil: Reborn
After "Shadowland" Andy Diggle takes Daredevil fans to a journey that may re-define the man without fear. This is a series about Matt Murdock and not his red-garbed alter-ego. I appreciated …

Daredevil: Reborn
Successively, Brian Michael Bendis and Ed Brubaker’s run in “Daredevil” were two of the most epic and definitely one of the best storylines I’ve read that got into the mythos of …

Batman - Knightfall, Part One: Broken Bat
While breathtaking in scope, the entire saga of KNIGHTFALL feels like one elongated retread of a work done far superior elsewhere. Many of the events occuring throughout the year-long tale are irrelevant …

Cowboys and Aliens (Graphic Novel, 2006)
A Little Too Juvenile and Uninspired for my tastes, but I have to admit it can find its audience. However, veteran comic book fans will be better off looking elsewhere. Good News is: it gives the movie …

Cowboys and Aliens (Graphic Novel, 2006)
I know there has been a lot of ‘hype’ surrounding the upcoming film “Cowboys and Aliens” so I figured perhaps it is time for me to review the actual graphic novel written by Fred …

Stardust (novel)
If you've only seen the film, Stardust the book (widely available as both a graphic novel and a novel) is quite different in tone. The story is a creatively dark fantasy adventure for adults …
posted a Quick Tip about Scarlet, Issue #5. April 06, 2011
Scarlet, Issue #5
Issue Five seems to have slowed down in regards to violence and attitude, and becomes more of a political stand-off. Bendis has crafted a tale that seems to be the calm before the storm. I cannot wait! …

Scarlet, Issue #5
After reading the first four issues of “Scarlet”, one can expect to be in for the long haul. (see my reviews for issue one, two, three and four by clicking on the links) The series’ …

The Arrival
   A wonderfully poignant and artistic graphic novel that tells its story entirely through images and without text. The plot is about a nondescript man who must leave his family behind in order …

Chew: Taster's Choice (Volume One)
One of the best comic books I have come across in years....incredibly clever and a Lot of Fun! If you only read ten comic books a year, this has to be among the top 5!!

Chew: Taster's Choice (Volume One)
Admittedly, besides movies, I have a passion for comic books and graphic novels. It has been a strong part of my childhood and I think I have comic book love written all over my DNA. It has become very …

Scarlet, Issue #4
Amazing. Bold. Inventive. Marvel has done it again with a comic book that breaks the fourth wall! Bendis and Maleev remain one of my favorite creative teams in comics!

Batman: The Killing Joke
It is no coincidence that the two best Batman movies had the Joker as Batman's main antagonist. There have been many colorful villains on the other side of the bat-punch over the years, but none is more …
