Review – Fatima: The Blood Spinners #4

From start to finish, ​Fatima: The Blood Spinners from Dark Horse Comics​ has been one of those miniseries that’s so much more than what it’s premise implies.  It’s hard to say that about most comics, especially those still cashing in on [...]

The Ride: Southern Gothic #1

Review – The Ride: Southern Gothic #1

There is something undeniably cool about an anthology focused on murder, sex, and cars.  It’s a very American set of themes, particularly the last third of that equation:  the car’s the symbol of freedom in the ol’ U.S. of A., [...]
