Comic Review: Gideon Falls #1

I think that I have made it pretty evident that I am a huge fan of Jeff Lemire.  The Canadian creator is easily my favourite modern comic book writer, and he has a way of telling stories that resonates with me.  So, since I heard about the new project, Gideon Falls I counted down the…

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.

Deconstructed: What If… Vol. 2 #23

Which supplied the obvious answer that they would be the Fantastic Five… Growing up during the 90’s the What If… books were…

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…
