I look at the late, great manga writer's non-terrible and actually good collaborations with Ryoichi Ikegami. Anyone looking to make a drinking game out of this episode is advised to take a shot each time I mention "female wish fulfillment" when talking about "Crying Freeman." It really wasn't...
Strap in as Myron and I take an in-depth look at this epic milestone anthology celebration of Batman.
This series about the beginning of Darth Vader's infamy is inextricably linked in my mind to its predecessor. For worse, and for better.
Follows on from this. Myron's back to help figure out if this latest Spider-event is any good or if you should just watch "Into the Spider-Verse" again.
In which I find lots of ways to say, "It's good, but not as good as 'The Ancient Magus' Bride'" about Kore Yamazaki's latest series.
Will I say something problematic or insightful about this pair of graphic novels featuring an African-American reporter going undercover as a white man in the 1920's?
A fancy way of saying that, along with the live-action movie, I'll be talking about the "Holy Night and Other Stories" and "Ashen Victor" collections.
I look at several recent releases, and one old one, to determine what makes a comic scary.
Featuring criminals, lovers, madmen, graphic violence, clever plans, and laugh-out-loud moments throughout the list, and all together in the year's best read.
John and I talk about the winter's BEST superhero movie while I go on about the comics that inspired it.
The stories that inspired the movie aren't bad, even if their defensiveness does them no favors. (And if anyone's wondering what I thought about the movie, I'll just say that it was fine.)
Does Kodansha's second manga-based anthology from international creators fare any better than its first?
Should I hold out hope that "Gideon Falls" will turn out well after the endings of "Descender" and "Royal City?"
John and I tackle a "Batman" story that does a lot of interesting things, but doesn't really take any of them far enough.
It has its faults, but this series is still a captivating, magical take on the "Beauty and the Beast" setup.
The latest series from Brubaker and Phillips is (unsurprisingly) really good!
The true stories of Andre the Giant, Andy Kaufman, and Tetris make for excellent reading in this graphic novelist's hands.
My thoughts on Matt Kindt's so-so follow up to "Mind MGMT."
It's "The War of the Worlds" by way of "The Wind in the Willows" and exactly as fun as that sounds.
Why do a major "Doctor Strange" story in the pages of his ongoing title when you can spin it out into a mini-event instead!
