The Greatest Comic of All Time Gets Announced: Klaus

Granted, that title may be exaggerated a little bit but today, CBR announced a new comic coming from BOOM! Studios by Grant Morrison and Dan Mora called Klaus. Grant Morrison describes it as “Santa Claus: Year One” and “All-Star Santa [...]

Frank Miller Writes New Batman Book

So everybody here’s the big news coming from DC this week, which has been hinted at for a long time now, coming only as a bit of a rumor mill piece that I don’t think anybody took seriously for quite [...]

DC Comics announces Matter-Eater Lad Ongoing

This is not the kind of book you would normally see DC announce. The character in question, Matter-Eater Lad is a relative obscurity in the canon of the DC Universe, relegated to being a side character in the Legion of [...]

Signals from the Multiversity #7: In History, All Men Have Masters

This, by far, feels like the most out of place issue in the Multiversity lineup: art by Jim Lee, a story about a world of Nazis and Hitler on a toilet (in what is probably the most outrageous first page [...]

Signals from the Multiversity #6: the Guidebook Edition

It’s weird, but I don’t have much to say about this issue. And what’s even more surprising about that statement is because it’s one of the biggest issues of the Multiversity saga yet. Hell, it’s the freaking guide to the [...]

Comic Booked Best of 2014: Julien Loeper’s Picks

As I tend to do every year with the media I consume, I like to compile it in a lazy list format that actually rocks, and maybe write a few things about it. The same happened in 2014.   Black [...]

Signals from the Multiversity #4

Pax Americana is a great riff on the seminal Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons classic Watchmen, but in a far more condensed and cohesive package. It works with similar grid-like structures, offers alternative modes of storytelling, and focuses on the Charlton characters [...]

Signals from the Multiversity #3

On Multiversity: The Just The Just is unlike any of the other Multiversity books out right now, primarily because it reads more like a gossip magazine, and features semi-photorealistic art from Ben Oliver (someone you wouldn’t expect to collaborate with [...]

Edward Scissorhands Comic

Review: Edward Scissorhands #1

I have unapologetically always been a Tim Burton fan. Consider it a byproduct of growing up with his films. However, I’ve no idea who Kate Leth is. This is more primarily my fault. So when I find out one of [...]

Review: Wytches #1

Wytches scared me to death. I don’t scare easy. The only horror movie that gives me a semblance of fright anymore is the original Halloween, primarily because it relied less on visual gore and more on creating suspense. It teases [...]

Gotham Academy

Review: Gotham Academy #1

You want to know what was the dopest sh*t when I was a kid? Harry Potter and Batman. You want to know what’s even cooler? A partial mixing of the setting and premise of the prior with the world of [...]

Signals from the Multiversity #2

Golden Age comics/characters tend to occupy a weird niche in the comics market today. Even more so for the pulp characters of the 30s to early 1940s. Dynamite Entertainment has carved out a market for itself by lapping up the [...]

Review: Deadly Class #7

Being a teenager at any point in time is weird and confusing as hell. Your perspective on things starts to take shape, molding itself into something concrete. Sometimes you begin to hate yourself, and subsequently humanity. You get looked at [...]

Author Page: Julien Loeper

The central conceit of this, in a decade of ever-decreasing anonymity, is to basically sell myself to you (the reader), work out the issue of my credibility as a comic book critic, and give out more personal information than I [...]

Review: East of West #15

How does one lay down a foundation for something so structurally big, so epic in nature, that it has the proper support structure while still being able to build and build and build? Plan it in advance. Root concepts down [...]
