An anticlimactic end 0

I haven't followed the news surrounding this book, so I don't know if this was the planned end or if it ended early because of some other factor. Either way, from a story perspective, the ending is not great. The story started off with a lot of promise, but maybe it spent too long getting to the end, so the climax just felt unsatisfactory. I don't want to be negative about this book, but the final chapter was dull and predictable. Travis and David had a confrontation with all other plot threa...

The Psychedelic Onslaught Returns 0

Chapter one, Chaos in the Cosmos, starts off full throttle and just keeps going with incredible intensity.The crew of the Santa Muerte are down one but their mission to safe guard the galaxy remains the same. Battling Vikers and overcoming the insane elements of Space, this first issue definitely harken back to the introductory issue. Alexis Ziritt's glorious art is an amazing thing to behold, and this issue exemplifies exactly what got readers excited about the Space Riders to begin with. I've ...

You can't go wrong for 50 cents 0

This issue can be downloaded at http://panelsyndicate.com/ where you can pay as much as you want for it (a minimum of 50 cents). The first issue starts off dealing with illegal immigration and follows the contrasting paths of two characters who start off on opposite sides of the Mexican/American border. Oscar, begins the story in Honduras and makes his way to Pharr, Texas where he encounters Liddy, a ranch owner who is dealing with the crime surrounding border jumping. Then aliens abduct them.....

The tagline is a lot wittier than the 1st issue. 0

This really wasn’t what I was hoping for. I’m a huge fan of We Can Never Go Home, so I was really excited to hear about some of the creative team collaborating on this new project. The preview video on youtube also really helped sell the series. The problem is, the book is about 11 year olds. They do a really good job capturing how kids that age interact, but that’s not really a good thing. 11 year old kids are annoying. Sitting down and reading this book is not exactly fun; i...

What did Warrior just do to Santa Claus? 0

Or I guess you could ask "What did Santa Claus just do to Warrior?" depending on which picture you are looking at. The Christmas issue of the briefly lived Warrior series was by far the most baffling part of the series. A collection of Christmas themed pin-ups, the comic had no connecting narrative and featured some very unusual pictures. In most cases, the pin-ups showcase the work of artists who are the epitome of the early 90's style as they illustrate the incredibly jacked Warrior in holida...

King Mystery (Rey Mysterio) 0

Professional Wrestling has always been a guilty pleasure of mine and I've recently discovered El Rey network's Lucha Underground, a unique blend of Lucha Libre (Mexican Wrestling) and Grindhouse Cinema. This comic, the first issue in a four part mini series, is filling in some of the gaps between season one and two of Lucha Underground. It is by no means phenomenal, and realistically does not tell much of a story. It's still by far the best wrestling comic book I've ever read, but when the compe...

Ending with a whimper. 0

As much as I've been championing this series, the final issue did not live up to my expectations. We Can Never Go Home still has my vote for best comic book series of 2015, but this last issue felt like the unnatural conclusion to what had up until this point been an incredible story. The violence of the gladiatorial combat was unsettling, but that wasn't really the problem with the story. The reveals and character progression felt off. There seemed to be a lot of retreading as we again were sho...

You say you want a revolution. 0

Picture it, Tairona 1973. It's like a flash back to my Latin American history course as the story lays out the military coup in a fictitious South American nation. Splicing a narrative together about the past and present of a revolution against the new dictator, Amancay uses newspaper articles and propaganda posters to give a deep explanation as to the world the characters are living in. It's good that they're there to break up the story, because the fast paced adventure in this book is really ...

Outta nowhere 0

And it's over. Well that was kind of disappointing. I've been really enjoying this series but couldn't put my finger on why it got it's hooks into me. I guess I'm a sucker for super hero teams and secrets. The characters in this book really had me intrigued and was looking forward to discovering their back stories as the series went on. Unfortunately this was the end. I don't know if #7 was solicited as the final issue, but I had no idea until I got to page 30. I should have clued in after the ...

Sabrina the teenage bride of Cthulhu 0

Stepping away from the Riverdale survivors, issue 6 focuses on the fate of Sabrina Spellman. After setting in motion the chain of events that would bring about the Zombie Apocalypse, Sabrina's aunts decided to banish the young witch to the nether-realm for a year of solitude and silent contemplation, however writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa decided to give Sabrina a much more petrifying fate.This issue is not exactly subtle about adopting the themes of Lovecraftian Horror but the creative team doe...
