Every once in a while, I like to check in on ongoing series that I initially missed out on. Which is how I wound up reading and loving the latest issue of Kelly Thompson, Carmen Carnero, Tamra Bonvillain, and Clayton Cowles’s Captain Marvel.
Over at Multiversity Comics (my comics home away from home), I wrote a quick treatise on why Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, and Tony Aviña’s The Boys is maybe good, maybe bad, but decidedly not for me. If you’re in for complicated takes on complex comics, click here to read my review of The Boys: Vol. 1.
If you’re a regular reader, don’t worry! I’ll be back with the usual full post in a couple weeks.
I’m a bit late to the party, but I’m here to tell you that Chapter One of Darcy Van Poelgeest, Ian Bertram, Matt Hollingsworth and co.’s Little Bird is dramatic and bonkers in all the right ways.
One of the best comics going returned in March, when Lazarus: Risen 1 hit store shelves. Clocking in at a hefty 67 pages, Risen debuted Lazarus‘s new, quarterly magazine format – a shift the creative team made in an attempt to stay on schedule and offer readers some bonus worldbuilding material.
I had no doubt that Lazarus: Risen would be entirely worth the wait and the slightly-increased price. But I did not know that Lilah Sturges’s short fiction piece, “Your Last Meal on Earth,” would stick with me for so long.
I’m STILL catching up on comics I missed from 2018, which is how I happened to find myself reading BOOM! Studios’s Abbott a few weekends ago. And while writer Saladin Ahmed and illustrator Sami Kivelä delivered a heck of a supernatural crime thriller, it was colorist Jason Wordie’s work that blew me away.
