REVIEW: Lady Killer #1

Consider Lady Killer added to V’s pull list.

Dark Horse Comics kicks off the year with an excellent new comic called Lady Killer by Joëlle Jones, Jamie S. Rich and Laura Allred. I’ve actually been a fan of Joëlle’s style for quite some time now, and you may have seen her selling some of her prints at a con near you. Anyway, her talent is thoroughly showcased in this book. The art is fantastic, you guys. And Laura Allred’s colors are to die for (pun intended). Continue reading “REVIEW: Lady Killer #1”

Podcast: ‘The Fifth Beatle’

Nothing brings out the fangirl in Erika like the Beatles. Then Dark Horse went and put them in a comic. Listen as E. joins Sidebar Nation for a lively discussion about “The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story.”

I am a massive Beatles fan and relished the opportunity to geek out with Sidebar Nation’s Swain Hunt about Dark Horse’s “The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story” in a Sidebar podcast. This truly exquisite and poignant graphic novel tells the story of the Beatles’ manager, Brian Epstein, the man who played a central role in making them icons and struggled greatly in his personal life as a closeted gay man. Written by Vivek J. Tiwary and gloriously illustrated by lead artist Andrew C. Robinson (with notable contributions by Kyle Baker), it’s one of the best things I’ve read this year. We loved the hell out of it, so check us out as we discuss the many highlights.

V. reviews Lazarus #1, L. reviews Akaneiro #2

Lindsey and I have full-length reviews up over at Newsarama’s Best Shots Advance column, today. She is loving the Red Riding Hood adaptation, Akaneiro. And I was super-stoked to review Greg Rucka’s Lazarus. Both comics feature female protagonists. Both comics are worth your time and money. CHECK IT.
