Comic Review: Gideon Falls #6

Gideon Falls has been a complex story already. But, the conclusion of the first chapter brings up the intensity and breaks the mold of artistic choices.

Comic Review: The Terrifics #6

The Background- DC is lucky enough to squeeze out one more issue of The Terrifics before Marvel brings home their own super-powered foursome. It was a blatant move when DC decided to make their own version of the Fantastic Four, and they weren’t trying to hide it. Even the competition knew that the world was…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #5

The Background- This is a major week for Gideon Falls. It was just recently announced that the rights have been sold to adapt the new series into a television show. Considering that reports say there was a massive bidding war, this tells us that the series is about to get better than we already expect….

Comic Review: Terrifics #5

The Background- I have been eating the Terrifics series up. DC’s very own resident version of the Fantastic Four offers all the fun and adventure of its inspiring series, plus Plastic Man – who is one of the most humorous characters in all of comic books. There is a lot of good things on the…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #4

The Background- Gideon Falls is one of the best new books on the comic shelves. More and more readers are starting to pay attention to this strange little series and it is quickly gaining mass popularity. I guarantee this is a comic like none you have ever read before. If you are not on the…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #4

The Background- DC’s attempt at swooping in and gaining the dedicated fan base of Fantastic Four seems to be working.  The Terrifics got off to a slower start than I am sure the publisher had hoped for, but it is gaining some ground.  After a three-part intro to settle us in- reviews can be found…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #3

The Background- I have just recently released my review for the second issue of The Terrifics (also, here is the first one for reference) and at the time I mentioned that there was a three-part run to establish the team. Well, with number three down I can safely say I feel established. Though nothing and…

Comic Review: The Terrifics #2

The Background- I have been completely onboard with DC blatantly ripping off the Fantastic Four and creating their own like team.  The Terrifics was a great idea from the get-go and adding the writing talents of Jeff Lemire put me over the edge.  I love that guy.  Unfortunately, The Terrifics do not have the decades…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #3

The Background- Finally, the wait for the third issue of Gideon Falls has been released.  As a comic reader, the month-long delay for issues has become a part of life. However, waiting for a new Gideon Falls is a form of torture.  The mysterious story from the brilliant mind of Jeff Lemire has been eating away…

Comic Review: Gideon Falls #2

The Background- Today marks the release of the second issue of Gideon Falls, and I couldn’t be any more excited.  I ate up that first issue like it was a tiny little cupcake- like one of those adorable micro-cupcakes from those miniature cooking videos.  I went on and on in my review, which I slapped…

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…

Comic Review: I Hate Image (Special Edition)

There is no comic series more fun than I Hate Fairyland by Skottie Young right now. The misadventures of Gertrude as she kills every cute and cuddly thing in sight is a quality break from everything else I read. So, when Young announced he was doing an issue for Free Comic Book Day, I knew…
