THE LIFE AFTER #2 (Oni): The first issue of Josh Fialkov and Gabo’s THE LIFE AFTER was one of the best first issues I’d read in a while—a twist on purgatory guest-starring Ernest Hemingway and some mysterious figures. But this one? Whole different ballgame. Hemingway’s still around for comic relief, but there are also tentacle [...]

(Five-second comics history lesson: Valiant first appeared in 1989, and within five [...]

I can’t stop gushing about Image Comics. Rick Remender and Wes Craig’s DEADLY CLASS is my favorite series on the stands at the moment.

Here [...]

Their frequent publisher, Dark Horse Comics, just sent the first preview of its upcoming PROMETHEUS series boasting the same Tobin-Ferreyra [...]

Comics, comics, comics. I love comics. Just one look at what’s on the upcoming rack from a single publisher and I find more stories I’d be into than if I combed a whole video store. (And yes, I just aged myself by using a VHS metaphor. Ace!) First up, the beauty that is Dark Horse, [...]

There are, however, pockets of reality that don’t work, disappearing bubble universes, and an intriguing character named Rosa Reyes who grew up in another dimension. It’s scientific, but it’s scary, and it [...]

I am not, in general, a television enthusiast. I watch movies and the occasional series on DVD, but I never watch cable or TiVo live events or sit down during dinner in front of a network TV show. It’s just not on my radar. I am, however, a HELLBLAZER enthusiast, as well as a Neil [...]
