Snotgirl by Bryan Lee O’Malley and Leslie Hung

When I had first heard that Bryan Lee O’Malley was working on a new project, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to read it. O’Malley has earned a lifetime of appreciation from me for his brilliant debut comic, Scott Pilgrim. Then, when I heard that the new main character was a…

Deconstructed: Inferior Five #8

I am fortunate to have found today’s issue for the Deconstructed. I had no idea who, or what the Inferior Five were before I Deconstructed Justice League of America #62 back in September. The Inferior Five title consisted of only 12 issues through 1967 and 1968, making it a difficult book to find. By chance,…

Deconstructed: Silver Surfer #14

It is the cosmic entity Silver Surfer vs. the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man in today’s Deconstructed! A battle of epic heroes. Two of Marvels biggest headliners going toe to toe. In all honesty, Spider-Man doesn’t stand a chance against the powers cosmic. But, for the sake of putting these two heavy hitters together in one book,…

Deconstructed: Sweet Tooth #2

It is about time that I Deconstructed a Jeff Lemire comic. I mean, I do mention him enough on the G.O.B., find some reviews here, here, here, here, here, just for a few. Sweet Tooth in particular is a series that I love. It was the first major ongoing series from Lemire, and his work…

Deconstructed: Alpha Flight #2

This week I held a poll to decide on this weeks issue for Deconstructed. From my end it was an exciting turn of events. Starting off the poll it looked like it would be a unanimous vote for Tales of the Teen Titans. Not surprising, as the Titans are one of the most popular teams…

Deconstructed: What If… Vol. 2 #23

The appeal of Marvel’s What If… series has never worn off on me. The parallel world books launched in the 70’s when the big question was: What If… Spider-Man joined the Fantastic Four? Which supplied the obvious answer that they would be the Fantastic Five… Growing up during the 90’s the What If… books were…

Deconstructed: Flash Vol. 2 #23

New York Comic Con is in full swing this weekend, and I couldn’t be more jealous of 200,000 people. The largest comic convention in North America is expected to drop some big announcements this year. More importantly may be the big trailers expected like Thor, and Star Wars. But, probably already dropped by the time…

Deconstructed: NFL SuperPro #1

I have a special treat in store for todays Deconstructed. A book that has been referred to as the worst comic ever created. I recently wrote about a panel at Edmonton Expo that featured legendary creator Bob Budiansky. During a recap of his all-star career, he brought up SuperPro as one of his most silly…
