REVIEW: Harley’s Little Black Book #1, Midnighter #7

V. is pleasantly reminded that some DC Comics are still pretty damn good.

I have a confession. I haven’t been reading much DC Comics… lately.

Yeah. I like Black Canary, but mostly because I am obsessed with the character and Annie Wu’s art. Bombshells is also a fine example of a superhero comic, and I do get my Secret Six on from time to time. That about sums it up.

I feel kind of blasphemous about it all. Birds of Prey. Wonder Woman. Superman: Birthright. These are the reasons I fell down the rabbit hole, and now I couldn’t give two shits. Much of the recent continuity, excluding Multiversity, rings wholly uninteresting to me. I will acknowledge that my aesthetic has certainly evolved since I began reading comics, and that is undeniably a part of my lackluster feelings towards DC. Also, who am I to judge when I am reading a whopping THREE titles?

So. Here’s me. Reading more DC. Trying to prove myself wrong.

Turns out. It worked.

Check my review of Harley’s Little Black Book #1 featuring Wonder Woman and drawn by Amanda Conner (YAY!). And I went ahead and reviewed Midnighter #7, too. Writer Steve Orlando has a particularly biting vernacular unlike any other, and Aco’s art is fanfreakingtastic. Check it.

G3 Gift Guide: 2015 Edition

In the spirit of consumption that reigns over the holiday season, we have procured a list of perfectly geeky gifts.

Ho, ho, dear readers.

This year we here at G3 have set out to make your holiday shopping a breeze. And by breeze we mean Baybreeze, because we’d all rather be somewhere warm with one of those in hand than scrolling through endless webpages in our cold houses, looking at gifts for undeserving friends and spouses.

Below you’ll find our recommendations on everything from books and games to prints and pins. We assure you, they were very carefully curated throughout the year and not at all a list of things we saw online today and wanted for ourselves.

These babies should have you covered on everyone from your mother (Lab Cocktail Kit), to your best friend’s toddler (Lab Cocktail Kit), to your boss who is almost certainly a werewolf (May we suggest… a Lab Cocktail Kit).

Happy shopping, nerds.

REVIEW: Bitch Planet #5

Vanessa reviews Bitch Planet #5

For the final issue of the first arc, the cover warns you to “steel yourselves for heartbreak,” but no amount of armor could come close to preparing you for impact.

REVIEW: DC Comics Bombshells #1

Bombshells. It’s bossy.

Falling in love with the many gorgeous statues that are made of our cherished comic book characters can be an expensive endeavor. I was personally obsessed with the second Ame-Comi Wonder Woman designed by artist Dustin Nguyen. You know, the one that is an homage to Greg Rucka’s Wondy that decapitated Medusa blind? Yeah. I eventually got my hands on one, but at great cost to a former paramour as in he paid a pretty penny for it.

DC’s Bombshells statues are just as admirable, if not more. They’re fun, creative, cosplay worthy and inspire all kinds of ideas… you know, like for a comic book! Continue reading “REVIEW: DC Comics Bombshells #1”

Comics You Should Be Reading: Back In The Saddle Edition

Hey nerds!

It’s been awhile. We know. Let’s just say we’ve been busy doing life, and all three of us are guilty of falling behind on our monthly comic book reading duties.

In an effort to get back in the saddle, we each went through our mounting stash of unread comics. We chose the two titles that we absolutely can’t wait to read and stand out among the rest. So, when your real-life responsibilities get you behind on your comics, in the very little in between time, these are the comics you should be reading.

REVIEW: Fables #150

V. reviews the Farewell of Fables.

Fables was one of the comics I cut my teeth on, and it will always hold a special place on my shelf. Today, the final (mega) issue of Fables hits comic shops, and the unconventional, intricate, addictive fairy tale is over. Bill Willingham, Mark Buckingham, Steve Leialoha and all the other wonderful artists and editors totally stuck the landing.

You can read my full review HERE.

REVIEW: Black Canary #2

V. reviews Black Canary #2

You guys! Annie Wu‘s pencils on Black Canary are SO GOOD! I’m basically obsessed, and over-the-moon that Wu is the one drawing my favorite character. I’d be remiss not to mention Lee Loughridge‘s colors. He does fantastic things for the tone of the book. The two of them combined SET the tone of the book. It’s edgy, but not trite. It’s modern and stylized. The art is basically the shit. I mean LOOK at my girl…
