Comic Review: Nailbiter #2 Well, Hello Clarice….

If there was a list of things to turn you off your steak, Nailbiter Issue 2 is definitely on that list and fairly high up. Even if it’s not “Silence of the Lambs” because Warren doesn’t even LIKE Chianti! Nailbiter Issue 2: Not ‘The Silence Of The Lambs’ In the first issue of Nailbiter, another brilliant offering…

Comic Review: Shutter #3- Animals Are People Too

With every issue of Shutter comes the overwhelming feeling that confusion is not only part of the deal, but an integral piece of the puzzle. That should be a negative, but with this team behind it, it really shouldn’t be any other way. Am I talking in riddles? Probably. But then, everything in the Shutter…

Comic Review: Shutter #2- Confusion And Animals In Suits

Shutter Issue 2 is as beautiful as it is confusing and it’s really, really beautiful.

Comic Review: Ghosted #9- Lions and Tigers And Bears, OH MY!

There are no bears in Issue 9 of Ghosted. But plenty of other angry beasts ready to tear Winters apart and that’s my kind of forest! We delve into the memory that made Winters such a cold customer, see a comic book artist really shine and some people get possessed. This is Ghosted, not a…

Comic review: ghosted #8

Comic Review: Ghosted #8

Whoa….Whoa, just….whoa…. In the words of Ron Burgundy “That escalated quickly.” If there’s one thing I love to see more than Jackson Winters being punched in the face, it’s seeing him say something witty to someone who will punch him in the face. Issue 8 has enough of both. (Okay, technically no ‘punching’, but he…

Comic review: ghosted #7

Comic Review: Ghosted #7

Ahahahahaaaaa….This issue of Ghosted is by far the most hilarious. I mean, not in the funny ha-ha way of Louis CK. But at the same time, I chuckled a few times because Jackson Winters is a jerk and I like that the debt he owes the Universe is being paid back in installments.  Ghosted #7:…

Comic review: shutter #1

Comic Review: Shutter #1

The first issue in a comic book series is the most important. Yes, character development. Yes, intricate storylines. Yes, artwork that continues to amaze. Those are all important things that don’t happen in the first issue because you need time to develop, to grow and to continue. The first issue has nothing to build on,…
