AFTERSHOCK ComicsWriter: Garth Ennis, Goran Sudzuka (co-creator) Artist: Goran SudzukaREVIEWED by: MICKEY This is a big no-brainer, right? Garth Ennis has spun so many yarns, even if you aren’t a fan, you definitely are aware of him. His stories always push the boundaries of how we perceive narrative, plot, and character development. This fact really […]

The New World

IMAGE COMICSWriter: Ales KotArtists: Tradd Moore (artist) Heather Moore (colorist)REVIEWED by: MICKEY It would seem every other week the trope of dystopian futures plays out in obtuse and generic ways.

ONI PRESSWriters: Dylan Meconis & Ben ColemanArtists: Ea Denich (art) M. Victoria Robado (colors)REVIEWED by: MICKEY The concept here at first feels all too familiar, as it appears that you are getting into a beat to death trope post apocalypse North America.

BOOM! STUDIOSWriter: Cullen BunnArtists: Jonas Scharf (art) Alex Guimaraes (colors) REVIEWED by: MICKEY Cullen Bunn is definitely one of the best writers out there.

VaughnArtist: Marcos MartinREVIEWED by: MICKEY This title by the creator of SAGA, among a multitude of other masterworks, might have slipped under the radar of many this month as so many great titles are out and vying for your attention.

Delta 13 #1

I.D.W.Writer: Steve NilesArtist: Nat JonesREVIEWED by: MICKEY DELTA 13 feels at first like a well-worn sci-fi genre trope, that is until you start to feel this dark and ominous, almost claustrophobic interiors. On top of making the void of space feel that way too, there is also this subtle way of detaching yourself from the […]

D.C. UNIVERSEWriter: Scott Snyder & Aaron GillespieArtist: Andy Kubert (pencils) Klaus Janson (inks) REVIEWED by: MICKEY The NEW CHALLENGERS pedigree is nowhere near in question.
