‘Penny Dreadful #3′ Review

by Dean Fuller

Written by Chris King | Art by Jesus Hervas | Published by Titan Comics To copy a little American sports vernacular, this series has been hitting it out of the park with its first two issues. A perfect continuation from the three seasons we enjoyed on TV, this ‘season four’ has not missed a beat. […]

‘House of Cards: Season 5, Episodes 7-13′ Review

by Catherina Gioino

There comes a certain point while watching a reality TV show that you start to wonder just how real the show is. Then comes the frightening opposite of it, when watching a dramatically licensed TV show based on daily life causes you to timidly question how real it truly has become. Unfortunately, the more we delve into […]

‘Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #1′ Review (Boom Studios)

by Dan Clark

Written by Victor LaValle | Art by Dietrich Smith | Published by Boom! Studios Basing your comic off a classic literary character takes a good amount of gumption. You are taking a character everyone is well aware of and trying to put your own spin in it, but if your spin too far off you […]

‘WWE #5′ Review (Boom Studios)

by Dan Clark

Written by Dennis Hopeless, Ross Thibodeaux | Art by Serg Acuna, Rob Guillory | Published by Boom Studios At first glance, the idea of a WWE comic seems pretty absurd. It is not super surprising it exists as we live in a world where any licensed property is bound to have some version of a comic, but […]

‘Twin Peaks 3×06′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

While Agent Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is still stuck in Dougie, that doesn’t mean that Twin Peaks can’t push a few buttons for fans. This week has a definite feel of Fire Walk with Me as well as a very interesting introduction to a returning, but until now unseen character that fans have been dying to […]

by Dan Clark

Generation X #2 Written by Christina Strain | Art by Amilcar Pinna | Published by Marvel Comics When looking at recent relaunch of all the X-Men titles there is no question what the weakest link is so far and that is Generation X. So far it is a series that is severely lacking its own […]

‘Secret Empire #3′ Review

by Dan Clark

Written by Nick Spencer | Art by Andrea Sorrentino, Rod Reis | Published by Marvel Comics When Secret Empire #0 debuted I was amazed by how much was packed into the first issue. Typically zero issues are nothing more than recaps, but Secret Empire did not follow that trend and moved at a break neck spread with a […]

‘Hulk #6′ Review

by Dan Clark

‘Doctor Who 10×09: Empress of Mars’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Doctor Who has been on quite a roll this season, and there was bound to be an episode that came along that was a bit of a filler. Empress of Mars feels to be that filler episode, and what we are given is a story that is simple, okay. After seeing an unexpected message on […]
