Comic Book Wednesday: The Witch Boy

The Witch Boy, Molly Ostertag Molly Ostertag’s The Witch Boy is a gorgeously illustrated graphic novel that, in a way accessible to readers of all ages, tackles the fear of ostracism so many people suffer from because they are different from what our contemporary society

5 Spooky Comics to Tide You Over Until Halloween

The month of October is almost halfway through and you know what that means… Stranger Things Season 2 is two weeks away! Wait, that’s not right. I mean, Halloween is two weeks away! And speaking of Stranger Things, we know you’re looking to take in

Comic Book Wednesday: Angelic #1

Angelic #1, Simon Spurrier & Caspar Wijngaard To be perfectly honest with you, I’ve never been one for monkeys. With the exception of orangutans, I’ve never seen the appeal (they have fangs and walk on their hands, so no thanks.) Needless to say, I was

Comic Book Wednesday: Misfit City #1

Misfit City #1, Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith, Kurt Lustgarten, & Naomi Franquiz It’s very obvious from the get-go that Misfit City takes its inspiration (like many comics, TV shows, and movies these days) from the 1980s. Above all else it’s a love letter to one of

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

Jem and the Holograms review

Comic Book Wednesday: Jem and the Holograms

Jem and the Holograms by Kelly Thompson, Sophie Campbell, & M. Victoria Robado  April has been a rough month for diversity in the comic book industry.

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
