‘I Hate Fairyland’ a Comedically Violent Romp

Artist/Writer Scottie Young (Human Torch, New X-Men) has created something uniquely appealing with his new series I Hate Fairyland. This time, other than the book’s cover, Young steps back from artistic duties and works primarily as the series’ writer. With a title like that, you’re probably asking what this series is about, especially if you […]

Created and written by H.S. Tak, author of the novel Red Shift, the writer describes Hitomi, Image’s latest release, “In feudal era Japan, a drifter with no prospects begins training in secret under Yasuke, a disgraced, once-feared warrior, as she struggles to find her place in a society entrenched in discrimination and violence.” With this […]

‘Vanish’ Not Disappearing Anytime Soon

Image just released their newest series from writer Donny Cates titled Vanish.  Having no prior knowledge of this series’ debut issue, I went purely on the recommendation of the fine folks at my local comic book store.  First off, let me say those guys know what they’re talking about.  Secondly, Donny Cates (God Country, Hulk) is […]

Rogues’ Gallery is an Unsuspecting Roundhouse

After releasing in late July, Image’s latest mini-series titled Rogues’ Gallery has received quite the buzz since. One of the unique footnotes about the four-issue title is that it is actually not written by a seasoned vet in the comic book industry. Rather, it is penned by actress Hannah Rose May who is best known […]

‘HAHA’ is No Joke

A six-part mini-series from Image Comics that began in mid-January, HAHA focuses each separate issue on one clown’s story. The approach is not conducted in the vain of something like the Joker or killer clowns, rather, HAHA brings forth what are very grounded, real world tales but still fiction. As the series is currently two […]

‘Exorsisters’ Debuts from Image

About a decade ago, I remember first seeing a new title from Image Comics called The Astounding Wolf-Man. Taking the concept of a super hero and combining it with a werewolf was definitely unique, though some may dispute the title character’s super hero-ness. Nevertheless, I flipped through a few pages and felt the artwork was […]

SDCC 2016: Montress Volume One

Released today, Monstress Volume One is the latest and greatest from Image. Featuring blistering artwork from renowned artist Sana Takeda(X-23, Ms. Marvel) and a dense and richly packed story from the brilliant mind of Marjorie Liu(X-23, Black Widow). Monstress is one book you’ll want to get your hands on. I found myself blown away by the awe-inspiring […]

The Fix #2 (Comic Book Review)

Nick Spencer (Morning Glories, Astonishing Ant Man) and Steve Lieber (Whiteout, Quantum and Woody Must Die) first teamed up back in 2013 with the sleeper hit The Superior Foes of Spider-Man, a book that had a good run but was sadly cancelled after 17 great issues. Superior Foes focused on some of the Z-list villains […]

‘Haunt’ on Film?

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman must be at least a little bit of a good salesman, as he was a founding father in getting the black and white zombie comic to a major cable network (AMC). I say “at least a little” because The Walking Dead is so good, it can practically sell itself. […]

From Walking Dead to Big Lizard

Robert Kirkman is a busy man.  That, my friends, is the understatement of 2011.  That’s like saying Michael Jordan was good at basketball.  The Image Comics executive and force behind the Image-imprint known as SkyBound Comics, has churned out idea after idea and has worked alongside many an artist on his creative journeys thus far, this time […]

The Walking Dead Rises to the Occasion

I am not normally one to review television, but this is a special case, so I will give it a shot. The acclaimed graphic novel series, The Walking Dead, which also happens to be one of my favorites, has been adapted into a television series, airing Sunday nights on AMC. I was stoked to learn […]
