Comic Book Wednesday: Rock Candy Mountain #2

Rock Candy Mountain #2, Kyle Starks & Chris Schweizer If you love comics and you’re not reading Rock Candy Mountain then you’re missing out on something quite wonderful. Kyle Starks and Chris Schweizer have crafted a wonderful, unhinged world, and each issue to be published

Weekend Reads: Aliens: Dead Orbit #1

Aliens: Dead Orbit #1, James Stokoe Aliens: Dead Orbit might as well have been called Aliens: Everything Horrible in Outer Space.

Comic Book Wednesday: Black Cloud #1

Black Cloud #1, Jason Latour & Ivan Brandon Out of all the Jason Latour-helmed comics that I’ve read recently (and loved), Black Cloud is by far the strangest. Don’t get me wrong — I didn’t dislike the first issue of Black Cloud. Far from it,

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

Comic Book Wednesday: Doctor Aphra #1

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
