Weekend Reads: Rock Candy Mountain #1

Rock Candy Mountain #1, Kyle Starks & Chris Schweizer I think it’s safe to say that most of my friends are familiar in some capacity with the song “Big Rock Candy Mountain”, from which Kyle Starks gets the title and clearly inspiration for  his wonderful, strange

Comic Book Wednesday: Godshaper #1

Godshaper #1, Simon Spurrier & Jonas Goonface While the story takes place during 2017, Godshaper begins by explaining to readers that in 1958 the laws of physics went a bit screwy. Not only that, but time seems to have come to a standstill as well.

Weekend Reads: Rockstars

Rockstars, Joe Harris & Megan Hutchinson Ever find yourself wondering that the lovechild of Almost Famous and The Exorcist would look like? If I were to hazard a guess, I’d say the answer is Joe Harris and Megan Hutchison’s ongoing series, Rockstars. I think it’s

Doctor Aphra #1, Kieron Gillen & Salvador Larroca As a HUGE fan of everything to do with Star Wars, it’s really hard for me not to love Doctor Aphra. Aphra’s back-stabbing, unethical, a bit violent, and an archeologist who’d give Indiana Jones a run for his

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

Comic Book Wednesday: The Old Guard #1

The Old Guard #1, Greg Rucka & Leandro Fernández They say that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Working in the book industry for as long as I have now, I can attest that nine times out of ten this is true. That

Comic Book Wednesday: Ether #3

Ether #3, Matt Kindt & David Rubín One of my favorite things about Ether is Matt Kindt and David Rubín’s almost painstaking attention to detail. Take the first page of Issue 3, for example. The story picks up where Issue 2 left readers off: with
