The Suicide Squad: Negative Space #1 Review

by EVAon June 15, 2015
Negative Space is a new comic written by Ryan K. Lindsay, creator of Headspace and Fatherhood (you can find our review of Headspace here), and it is not your typical comic. It follows a depressed author who wants to kill himself, but gets writers block when trying to create his suicide note. His ineptness kick-starts […]
B.P.R.D.: 1946 – 1948

B.P.R.D.: 1946 – 1948 Review

by Tim Finchon June 15, 2015
If you’re a fan of the Hellboy series but always wondered what happened immediately after the discovery of Hellboy during World War II, then you need to pick up a copy of B.P.R.D.: 1946 – 1948 from Dark Horse Comics. Personally, I only know what I know about Hellboy from his silver screen adaptations (starring […]

Plants vs Zombies: Bully for You #1 Review

by EVAon May 22, 2015
Confession time: I’ve never actually played Plants vs Zombies, the wildly popular mobile game from Popcap so I wasn’t sure what to expect from this first issue of the Plants vs Zombies: Bully for You miniseries from Dark Horse Comics. Would it be full of references to the games that I wouldn’t understand? Would this […]

Past Aways #2: Colourful Time Travelling Tale is Both Funny and Heartbreaking

by EVAon April 29, 2015
The second issue of Dark Horse Comics’ Past Aways is a terrific follow up to a strong opening issue. In issue #1, writer Matt Kindt and artist Scott Kolins introduced us to a team of time travellers, who have come back in to time learn more about our present. However, something has happened which has […]

‘Subversive and Blunt’: Meet Fight Club 2

by Jeff Fountainon April 28, 2015
In 1996, Chuck Palahniuk turned a seven page short story in his first novel called Fight Club. Three years later, director David Fincher took that story and put it up on the big screen, pushing the movie far beyond cult status, immortalizing the characters and striking a chord with audiences so that to this day, […]

Comic Review: Harrow County #1 is Horror Gold

by Jeff Fountainon April 16, 2015
Being a lifelong horror fan, one of the things I always look for is if the medium, whether it’s a novel, comics, television or movies, has been able to in some way give off the feeling of dread. It is a tricky thing to pull off and granted, not all horror is after that type […]

A Wild Dinosaur Appears! Past Aways #1 Review

by EVAon March 21, 2015
Past Aways #1 is a comic that starts strongly; any comic that features a tiny dinosaur shooting acid out of its backside in the opening pages gets a firm thumbs up for me. But of course, Past Aways is more than just acid shooting dinosaur backsides.

Dark Ages Volume 1: Medieval Mercenaries Battle Aliens

by EVAon March 21, 2015
Dark Ages is a gruesome, strange little comic, bringing together god-fearing mercenaries of the Middle Ages and invading aliens who are capable of controlling the dead. It’s an extraordinary concept and I absolutely loved it. Dark Ages is the latest project from Dan Abnett (Guardians of the Galaxy, 2000AD) and I.N.J. Culbard (Celeste, Brass Sun), who […]

Archie VS. Predator #1 is a Perfectly Strange Crossover

by Jeff Fountainon March 19, 2015
I have to admit when I saw the title of this comic I stopped what I was doing and did a double take. Archie VS. Predator? Are you serious? Then I saw that Alex De Campi was writing it and I immediately had hope. As strange and bizarre as this crossover is, she brought her […]

Powell Introduces the Goon to H.G. Wells

by EVAon March 18, 2015
If you take the time to pick up a Goon comic, it becomes very clear as to why there is a very devoted following of fans to this book. The Goon brings a fresh look with very poetic writing to the reader. I found myself going over the book twice just to ensure I was […]
