IMAGEWriter/Designer: Christopher SebelaArtist/Colorist: Joshua HixonREVIEWED by: MICKEY Shanghai Red has allot going on! While having an obligatory comic equivalence of a montage in an inaugural issue, there is a whole lot of things happening in the present tense that checks all the boxes.

The Magic Order

IMAGEWriter: Mark MillarArtists: Olivier Coipel (pencils and inks)REVIEWED by: MICKEY Ambiguous title aside, Mark Millar (Kick-Ass, Hit-girl, REBORN etc.) has really started something different with The MAGIC ORDER. Sure, there are magic wands and incantations galore as one might expect, but here the magic isn’t just some mystical thing only controlling the plot lines. These […]

IMAGEWriter: Joseph KeatingeArtist: Bret BlevinsREVIEWED by: MICKEY Strictly speaking, the level of artistry on display here from Bret Blevins is probably the coolest stuff that has come around this year! He has a fine-line style that doesn’t have an equal out there except for the master, Geof Darrow. Interior set pieces and exterior environs, whether […]

AMIGO ComicsWriter: Colleen DouglasArtists: Andre Stahlschmidt (art) Wesllei Manoel (colors)REVIEWED by: MICKEY The world on display here is complicated.

IMAGEWriter: Landry Q. WalkerArtists: Justin Greenwood (artwork) Eric Jones (colors)REVIEWED by: MICKEY The Last SIEGE drips with atmosphere, stark and rainy western European Anglo-Saxon vistas set a stark mood. The color palate is appropriately muted, and still Justin Greenwood manages to pack as much detail into each panel or splash-page as possible.   Wasting no […]

MARVEL comicsWriter: Mariko TamakiArtists: Butch Guice (pencils) Cam Smith (inks) Dan Brown (colors)REVIEWED by: MICKEY So far, this new approach to tackling a MARVEL event has been pulled off very well. Think D.C. Metal original titles and tie ins. They’ve definitely taken the blunders of the past few universes altering story lines (secret empire, anyone?) […]

IMAGEWriters: Brian Haberlin; Brian HolguinArtists: Brian Haberlin (artwork) Geirrod VanDyke (colours)REVIEWED by: MICKEY Spawn is an ominous character to assume the mantle of. Todd McFarlane laid the groundwork for probably one of the most recognizable antiheroes ever created. Here the Brian’s have crafted a worthy tale, both in storytelling and beautifully rendered interiors. One of […]
