Sandman Overture #2

by Greg DeVrieson March 29, 2014
Some years ago, Neil Gaiman had a Dream. A Dream of what comics could be. Something different, something a bit more mature and a bit more fantastical. An so he penned Sandman. And it was all that it could be and more. A magnificent saga about Dream of the Endless. A splendid tale that spanned seventy-five […]

by Greg DeVrieson February 15, 2014
As a follow up to my earlier post about comics and the gender gap, I’ve compiled a list of my favorite female characters. This is not intended to be the end all/be all list, but rather a good starting point for some characters to check out. Also please note, this is my list and only […]

Legendary X-Men Writer Chris Claremont Returns with Nightcrawler

by Greg DeVrieson January 16, 2014
This April, legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont returns with the blue elf in his own series. Nightcrawler  will focus on Kurt’s return to life and all of the changes that have occurred since his demise in Second Coming. And I for one couldn’t be more excited. Nightcrawler has long been my favorite X-Man. He’s got an awesome […]

Ghost #1 Review

by Greg DeVrieson December 10, 2013
Ghost is a story of Elisa Cameron, a girl stuck between worlds. Banished to hell for discovering something she shouldn’t have, and subsequently brought back, she occupies the limbo between life and death, hunting demons. Combine this premise with some fantastic art, and you have a story worth checking out. I was drawn to this book […]

Comics and the Gender Gap

by Greg DeVrieson December 10, 2013
So recently, it was announced that actress Gal Gadot (Fast and Furious) will play Wonder Woman in the upcoming Superman VS Batman. Looks to be a solid casting, but more importantly it means we finally get an appearance of Wonder Woman on the big screen. Admittedly, it’s not a full movie, but baby steps. We’ll get […]

Avengers Arena Series Review | It’s a Mad, Mad World

by Greg DeVrieson November 30, 2013
This week, Avengers Arena finished after eighteen issues and thirty danger filled days of Murderworld. There were new characters, fights, deaths, triumphs of the human spirit, and a whole lot of angry fans. Were their fears justified? Let’s take a look at the series as whole. NOTE: Given the nature of series, it is impossible to […]

The-Fifth-Beatle

The Fifth Beatle Review

by Greg DeVrieson November 12, 2013
The Fifth Beatle is the story of Brian Epstein, the manager behind The Beatles. Without him, it’s likely they would never have gotten much further than Hamburg. And yet, his is the story that gets lost most often in the mythology that has surrounded The Beatles. Luckily, we have this superb graphic novel to present the […]

New York Park #1 Review

by Greg DeVrieson November 10, 2013
I have a confession to make: I really enjoy reading dramas about teenagers. It’s really strange and I didn’t realize until it was pointed out to me, but several of my favorite comic runs (Runaways, Avengers Academy, New X-Men Academy) are teen drama. Which is weird, because I dislike actual teenagers. But it’s because of this […]

Dust Bunny Review

by Greg DeVrieson October 18, 2013
Dust Bunny is a graphic novel from Brett Brooks that features an anthropomorphic rabbit detective named Dust Bunny, a matchstick named Aiden Flint and copious amounts of style and genius. I’m going to cut to the chase on this one. You need to read it. You really do. Dust Bunny is a noir detective story. Don’t let […]

Fireside Chat | Ben Affleck is… Batman?

by Darrin Wrighton August 24, 2013
Ben Affleck is Batman in the next Man of Steel movie. Don’t panic! At least, not until you’ve read my chat with Jeff about this whole #Batfleck thing. Darrin: So… Bat Affleck. What was your initial reaction? Because mine was panic. Jeff: It kind of shocked me, but I didn’t panic. Affleck was certainly a […]

Sacrifice Review (Dark Horse)

by Greg DeVrieson July 28, 2013
*cue ‘Cortez the Killer’ by Neil Young* Sacrifice is a story of a boy, Aztecs and human sacrifice. Fun mix, right? Written by Sam Humphries (Uncanny X-Force, The Ultimate, Avengers AI) and illustrated by Dalton Rose with colors by Pete Toms. It was originally self published earlier this year, and Dark Horse is releasing a collected volume next […]

Doc Unknown #1 Review – Comixology

by Greg DeVrieson May 22, 2013
Gonna say it from the get go, Doc Unknown #1 is a fun issue to read. Really fun. Part Batman and Part Indiana Jones, Doc Unknown watches over Gate City, ready to save the day from whatever mayhem may occurs. In this first issue, he attempts to foil a museum heist by Boss Snake, who really looks […]

Secundus: Part 1 Review – Comixology

by Greg DeVrieson May 22, 2013
Who doesn’t love gladiator stories? Often the highlight of any Roman story. Visceral, violent and exciting. Men fighting each other for freedom, or just to satisfy their bloodlust. However, it is one area sadly lacking in comics. You’ve got vikings with Northlanders, but no real good gladiator stories. Enter Secundus, a gladiator named thus because he always fights two. […]

Valiant Hearts: The Great War Review | Dog of War

by Sam Robinsonon July 20, 2014
Valiant Hearts: The Great War is not your average video game. It’s a historical story that wants you to experience the horrific nature of war without you ever picking up a gun. Ubisoft Montpellier has a unique perspective for Valiant Hearts: The Great War. They were more interested in telling a story with “a game about war,” and not a “war game.” […]
