Chew is set to run for 60 issues, and issue #30 marked the half way point. Naturally, it was a big one. Chew #30 is a smorgasbord of memorable moments.
Owls, schmowls. The real horror story in Gotham arrived in Batman #13 with an eerie cackle and a face hanging off its hinges. Writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo brought the world’s scariest jester back in a big way, and the story rattled me so much that I was suspicious of every creaking floorboard … Continue reading 2012 Memorable Moment: The Joker Returns
For better or worse, comic fans knew that DC's relaunch would bring changes to beloved characters. As Brian Azzarello took on the daunting task of writing Diana of Themyscira, Princess of the Amazons, he had a devoted fan base to appeal to. At first, he was fairly successful. I was sold. In my defense, the beauty of … Continue reading 2012 Memorable Moment: Azzarello’s Amazons
As much as I love Fables, Fairest wasn't doing it for me ... until issue #7. The wonderfully drawn-but-painfully-slow first arc of Fairest was followed by an unexpectedly fantastic one-shot about Beauty and the Beast. The issue is set in 1946 Los Angeles and drawn in a cheeky noir style by Shawn McManus. We see … Continue reading 2012 Memorable Moment: Lamia
Lindsey on the day Brandon Graham's creator-owned comic hit the shelf.
Lindsey meditates on the goodness that has been Conan the Barbarian this year.
Ladies, prepare to show ID. You’ll need it to get past the self-appointed guardians of geek culture who think you’ve got some nerve showing up at cons and wearing Star Wars T-shirts when you obviously don’t know Dantooine from Dagobah. And if you’re in a “provocative” costume, they might label you a troublemaking minx who … Continue reading 2012 Memorable Moment: No Gurlz Allowed
Erika fondly recalls one of Riverdale's most memorable celebrations.
What was the last thing V. was expecting in the blood-soaked first issue of Batman Incorporated? A cuteness bomb.
E. kicks off G3's rundown of the moments that have made comics and geekdom memorable in 2012 ... with some Punk Rock Jesus.
If you have not had the pleasure of reading Brian Wood and Ryan Kelly's New York Four and New York Five, I would highly recommend them both. It is not quite a coming of age story, but more like a snapshot into the lives of four girls attending college in Manhattan. NYU is about the … Continue reading 2011 Memorable Moment: Olive Branch
V. kicks off her memorable moments of 2011 reminiscing about the final issue of Secret Six.
It’s easy to dismiss Bruce Wayne’s son as an annoying brat, but I think that’s a shallow criticism. There’s a struggle within Damian that is fascinating, and his killer instinct has always been dangerously close to the surface. (Remember last year’s memorable moment, when he bashed the Joker’s head in with a crowbar?) Illustrator Patrick … Continue reading 2011 Memorable Moment: Damian Goes Dark
When you read a lot of comics, it takes something truly special to stand out from the pile of panels and pages. As 2011 winds down, V. and I are taking our annual look back at the moments that stuck with us long after the issues went into the longbox. And we're not only covering … Continue reading 2011 Memorable Moment: Peter Parker’s Ultimate Sacrifice
After thousands of years, Frau Totenkinder comes full circle.
