Weekend Reads: Loose Ends #2

Loose Ends #2, Jason Latour & Chris Brunner Issue 1 of Loose Ends is all about introducing the key players in Jason Latour’s four-part southern mystery. Issue 2, in a wonderful turn of pace, is mostly dedicated to telling their backstory. It becomes clear that

Comic Book Wednesday: Extremity #1

Extremity #1, Darren Warren Johnson & Mike Spicer Like its title and cover less-than-subtly hint at, Extremity is pretty extreme. And by extreme I mean that it’s super violent. Which is something coming from me when you consider two of my favorite comic book runs

Weekend Reads: Loose Ends #1
