Benito Mambo ()
May 28, 2014 -

Although it falls short of its inspiration’s greatness, Benito Mambo is a terrific book in its own right, juxtaposing humor with tragedy, love with the absurd and the grand with the ordinary. It’s also highly unpredictable, and although it may not necessarily conclude the way readers might like it to, defying such stale expectations is an act of bravery in and of itself.

Star Wars: Rebel Heist was akin to tagging along with a celebrity of the Star Wars universe and being part of what they do best.

Star Wars Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir #1 ()
May 28, 2014 -

Since the crew that created the show had half the episodes to wrap up the multitude of story lines they had created, this comic, Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir was made to help give us some closure.

The Boy Who Went To War isn’t a comic I would recommend, because it is only a fraction of what it really could be

May 28, 2014 -

This book more or less walks readers through the motion in how Zoey managed to pull off this (obviously, in real life, totally not cool-to-do) crime.

Tales from the Con #1 ()
May 21, 2014 -

The cartooning by Chris Giarrusso feels like it belongs as a feature in MAD magazine and Brad Guigar’s commentary on the insane behaviors echoes what geeks drunkenly talk about in their hotel rooms.

Nailbiter #1 ()
May 21, 2014 -

Visually, Nailbiter does its job of intriguing the reader, but the writing is painting by numbers. Hopefully issue two serves up some unique story elements, or this book will languish as a rerun.
