V. knows things, like which comics are worthy.
"The rules are simple. The gun is always loaded. The safety is always off. The fucker always fires.”
Join L. as she recounts the sensuous HeroesCon panel of Matt Fraction and Chip Zdarsky's Sex Criminals.
V. had the pleasure of reading and reviewing Kelly Sue DeConnick and Emma Rios's new creator-owned series, Pretty Deadly.
Seasons change and so do our pull lists. G3 is keeping you up-to-date and in style with a list of comics you should probably be reading.
Hey guys! I'm reviewing stuff again. This week is two quick reviews on Gail Simone's slow-burn in The Movement #4 and the explosive final issue of The Legend of Luther Strode. When The Strange Talents of Luther Strode hit the shelves last year, that book was pure energy and wildly addicting. I actually didn't catch... Continue Reading →
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.
V. chats with writer Kurtis Wiebe about his new series, Rat Queens AND has a 5-page preview ... just for you!

In the spring of 2011, “Nonplayer #1” (Image Comics) generated the kind of excitement that independent comics creators dream of. Written and illustrated by videogame concept artist Nate Simpson, the series introduced readers to Dana Stevens, a tamale delivery girl who escapes her mundane reality through the full-immersion online game “Warriors of Jarvath.” The praise...

This dynamic duo hits some big books for the week over at Newsarama. Click here to check out our Rapid Reviews of Uncanny X-Force, Fatale, and Batman & Robin.
Mind the Gap #1 Written by Jim McCann Art by Rodin Esquejo and Sonia Oback Letters by Dave Lanphear Image Comics is on fire. Week after week, it’s churning out some of the most interesting and innovative comic books around, and Mind the Gap #1 is no exception. On one level, it’s a tantalizing mystery... Continue Reading →
Danger Club #1 (Image Comics) Written by Landry Q. Walker Art by Eric Jones and Michael “Rusty” Drake Letters by Richard Starkings and Jimmy Betancourt In comics, every teen hero reaches a point where he or she wants to prove capable of saving the world, or at least the day, without adult supervision. It’s a timeless... Continue Reading →
Imagine if Archie were a grindhouse film, The Walking Dead met Strange Girl, or Pee Wee from Porky’s rolled up an issue of Chew … and smoked it. These are the things I think of as I read Alpha Girl, but Alpha Girl #2 isn’t quite any of those things. With a zombie apocalypse on the horizon, this intentionally gratuitous tale of a 17-year-old girl tries really hard to be fun. Maybe too hard.
V. sounds off and reflects on her week in comics. This week: Detective Comics, Birds of Prey, The Infinite Vacation, Wonder Woman, Fables, and The Strange Talent of Luther Strode.
Saga #1 Written by Brian K. Vaughan Art by Fiona Staples Lettering/Design by Fonografiks Published by Image Comics An exceptional comic book leaves readers thinking not only about the story’s potential, but also the brilliance of what it has already delivered. Saga #1 is that kind of comic. From the beginning, it is obvious that... Continue Reading →
V. runs down her pull list - Wonder Woman, Birds of Prey, Fables, Morning Glories, and of course ... CHEW!
Artists To Watch I finally got around to reading Justice League Dark #2 from last week's stash. There's no doubt that Milligan knows what he's doing when it comes to stories like this, at least that's what I've heard. The plot is still a bit of a mystery. But one thing is for sure; Mikel...

Stories about jaded, adrift young adults are plentiful in the indie comics genre, but All Nighter has more to offer than generic hand-wringing. For one thing, there’s that opening line: “My name is Kit Bradley. Nine years ago, I killed my mother.” That is one hell of a teaser, but writer/artist Dave Hahn is taking... Continue Reading →
I've not been at all shy about my affinity for Miss Darla Danberry. She is, hands down, my favorite character of 2010. Naturally, one of my favorite moments would include her. Her journey from Jersey to The City to make it to the last Forgetless party ever is filled with drama and angst. Ultimately, Darla... Continue Reading →
Miss Daramount, the headmistress of Morning Glory Academy, is the sexy librarian from hell. And from the moment she appears in Morning Glories #1, you can't look away. Miss D. is the perfect 21st Century villain. Even as she sanctions (or carries out) the torture of her students, she insists that it's for their own... Continue Reading →
V. vents about the apparent similarities between Madame Xanadu #28 and Chew.
Girls Gone Geek is participating in a comic blog crossover event to tell readers about good books that are a little under the radar. V.'s pick is Nick Spencer's Forgetless.
Chew Volume 1: Taster's Choice Story: John Layman Art: Rob Guillory Image Comics With all the recent shenanigans at DC, I was mad and stuff. So I'm all, "I'm gonna read more indie books!" Chew was on my list of alternative books, and one of the guys in the GP (my Geek Posse) happened to... Continue Reading →
