Skyward: Free Comic Book Day 2014 ()
May 14, 2014 -

For a straight forward but not too clumsy fantasy story Skyward looks like a good book, however, the Saturday Morning cartoon characters on the back page lead me to believe I don’t have the full story here

RoboCop Beta could have captured more Boom! Studios readers with a full one-shot book offered for free, but it wasn’t the best vehicle to try and capture that audience

EHMM Theory: Free Comic Book Day 2014 ()
May 14, 2014 -

Hopefully McKinney can find an illustrator that can strengthen the book next year, because the first impression from this Free Comic Book issue is that it was barely worth the price paid for it.

If you have a young reader, and actually wanted a good book to read for Free Comic book day, grab The Lumber Janes from Boom! Box. You won’t be disappointed.

May 7, 2014 -

Free Comic Book day is all about first impressions, and unfortunately Midnight Tiger felt like a student project, so the free price tag felt like the price of admission.

A Voice in the Dark remains one of the most fun and surprising ongoing series in graphic storytelling currently on the market, and it deserves every bit of attention afforded to it.

Archer & Armstrong is a riotously fun book, and this issue – entitled “American Wasteland Part One” – is a perfect jump-on point.

This issue marks yet another turning point for the titular character of Aphrodite IX, and it’s definitely worth picking up and spreading the word about.
