Fairest #9
Review: Fairest #9
3 Comic Reviews
In "Fairest" #9 by Lauren Beukes and Inaki Miranda, Rapunzel meets old loves and new threats in The Hidden Kingdom. The imagery and Beukes' allusive world-building are lovely, but flaws in plotting, pacing and characterization mar its beaut
Animal Man #14
Review: Animal Man #14
3 Comic Reviews
Jeff Lemire, Steve Pugh and Timothy Green II jump between present day and the Rotworld future in "Animal Man" #14, but it's those left behind in the present day that present the more compelling story.
X-Men #38
Review: X-Men #38
3 Comic Reviews
Seth Peck and Paul Azaceta debut on "X-Men" #38 with a story teaming up Domino and Daredevil. It's not necessarily an "X-Men" story, but it is entertaining in its own right.
47 Ronin #1
Review: 47 Ronin #1
3 Comic Reviews
Mike Richardson and Stan Sakai's "47 Ronin" #1 looks absolutely gorgeous, but the story itself feels a little slow and stilted in this first chapter telling a legend from Japan's past.
Green Arrow #14
Review: Green Arrow #14
3 Comic Reviews
Ann Nocenti and Freddie Williams II seem to be biding their time on this title as the "Hawkman: Wanted" storyline sideswipes "Green Arrow" #14 with an unnecessary and muddy crossover.
Swamp Thing #14
Review: Swamp Thing #14
3 Comic Reviews
"Rotworld: the Green Kingdom" part two provides a deeper dive into the horrific dystopian future in the pages of "Swamp Thing" #14 courtesy of Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette.
Deadpool #1
Review: Deadpool #1
3 Comic Reviews
Gerry Duggan, Brian Posehn and Tony Moore deliver a rollicking adventure chock full of laughs in "Deadpool" #1 as the Merc With A Mouth takes on a cadre of dead presidents.
Colder #1
Review: Colder #1
3 Comic Reviews
Despite an over-the-top cover, "Colder" #1 by Paul Tobin and Juan Ferreyra is not splatter horror, but the beginning of a strange and original psychological thriller with a heart-thumping cliffhanger at issue's end.
Epic Kill #6
Review: Epic Kill #6
3 Comic Reviews
Raffaele Ienco's tale of the ultimate fighting machine returns to Image, as "Epic Kill" attempts to do the impossible: Bring its lead character back to life. It doesn't happen here, but it's a lot of fun in the process.
Storm Dogs #1
Review: Storm Dogs #1
3 Comic Reviews
David Hine and Doug Braithwaite's "Storm Dogs" #1 is a worthy addition to Image's growing library of sci-fi series, successfully merging the genre with crime fiction, and providing a solid visual experience.
