CRY HAVOC #1 (Image): If you’ve ever read a comic by Simon Spurrier, you know basically what to expect: dissection of mythology and its meaning, sharp-tongued British colloqualisms, and a happy dash of absurdity. That said, CRY HAVOC is different from his usual fare; it comes off as deadly serious, for one thing, and the [...]

A while back, I had a fascinating chat with writer/director Adam Egypt Mortimer about a great comic book called BALLISTIC. Over the course of said interview, he revealed that his livelihood was in film and horror movies were his wheelhouse. So when SOME KIND OF HATE showed up at my door, I could not resist [...]

The 25-episode anime aired on Adult Swim, every new volume of [...]

The last time you were scared of a witch was probably when you first saw Margaret Hamilton cackle her way through THE WIZARD OF OZ, or when Roald Dahl’s THE WITCHES pulled off their wigs and gloves and exposed their claws (mommy!). Well, look no further, my friend: the first issue of Scott Snyder and [...]
