I didn’t know how else to title this article. It’s basically that: Matt Fraction talks to a fan who is asking him about whether or not life is worth living. It’s unclear if the individual posting the question is truly [...]

Review: Afterlife with Archie #1

King's Watch #1

Review: Kings Watch #1

After seeing the ads for Kings Watch in a number of Dynamite books over the last few months, I didn’t know what to make of it. The publisher has been doing some great mashups of late, bringing together characters that have [...]

Episode VI: Return of the Gimmick

Over my time as a collector, I’ve seen a number of comic gimmicks come and go. Some were done quite well; others… not so much. Some enhanced the experience and others… nope. But recently this resurgence of gimmicks that were [...]

Hell's Kitty

Independent Spotlight: Hell’s Kitty

Ever heard of the web series Hell’s Kitty? If you haven’t, you’re missing out. It’s a great little series that covers both the comedy and horror genres and focuses on a guy and his cat… but it’s not your general everyday [...]

Red Sonja 1 (Nicola Scott)

Review: Red Sonja #1
