Check Out Little Bird Before It Ends


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.

Some Thoughts on Lazarus: Risen’s “Your Last Meal on Earth”


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.
