A flamboyant rendering of one of V's favorite new characters.

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.

G3 Review: Alpha Girl #2

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.

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.

Comic Judgment: All Nighter

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 →

2010 Memorable Moment: Darla the DJ

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 →

2010 Memorable Moment: Daramount!

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 →
