Covered 365: Day 138

Spawn #138, Image Comics, September 2004 – Artist: Greg Capullo. I’ve always been a sucker for wraparound covers and Capullo’s work on Spawn #138 is fantastic. What sent me over the top was the foreground shell casings, I mean come…

Velvet #1

I love spy stories. There’s that element of mystery, intrigue, danger and sex appeal that just grabs me and won’t let go.  I’ll kick back and watch countless hours of James Bond, Mission Impossible, Burn Notice or Archer to satisfy…

DANCER is a book for sensitive types who appreciate the romance of looking at the world through a sniper scope.

Zub celebrates fantasy storytelling with ‘Skullkickers,’ ‘Pathfinder’

Comic books are not exclusively defined by the exploits of superheroes and their costumed escapades. While the industry is surely dominated by the titles published by larger, corporate-owned companies, much like any other medium, tucked away in the unlit corners of creation rest works of art by independent writers and artists whose work pushes and challenges the comic medium beyond the boundaries of its minimum safe distance.

Saga #6

If any comic book writer has the resume to be so bold as to title their comic, "Saga," it would be Brian K. Vaughan. With a bibliography including Runaways, Ex Machina, Pride of Baghdad and Y: The Last Man, and a number of Eisner awards to his credit, Vaughan has a remarkable body of work thus far, and Saga is no different.

The Walking Dead #100

When any book hits a milestone, it's routinely momentous and deserving of a measured amount of fan fare. With its 100th issueThe Walking Dead, co-created by Robert Kirkman and Tony Moore, hit such a milestone with its July 11th release, accompanied a wealth of media hype, fan hype and more covers than can possibly be necessary. Yet in a case like this, what matters is the comic itself, as regardless, in the end, a book needs to stand on its own.

Rebel Blood #4

Rebel Blood is one of many zombie based books available for the consumption of horror fans, and considering that, we must ask what differentiates them from each other. Which are good, which are less so; in the end, which are worth our money and which are not? Given the arc of Link and Rossmo's story and its ultimate conclusion, it's very clear Rebel Blood in any incarnation is worth every cent of its price tag.

Mind the Gap #1

Stories with an air of mystery injected into their plots almost always make for more interesting stories. They are sure develop slowly, offering a wealth of gradual revelations, with the payoff, ideally, being something we scarcely suspected. As with any though, it's difficult to grasp where a story can be headed after only its first issue, leaving readers to ponder the allusions throughout the issue and what they may mean in the greater context of the arc.

Rebel Blood #1

Considering the overwhelming popularity of zombies due in large part to the successes of the Walking Dead comic and television series, it's difficult to revolutionize the horror genre. Even with that in mind, that's what co-plotters Alex Link and Riley Rossmo have attempted to do with their creator-owned series, entitled Rebel Blood.

Hell Yeah #1

After 80 years it's difficult to put a new twist on the superhero genre of comics, and yet that seems to be what Keatinge and Image Comics have attempted to do with one of their latest releases in Hell Yeah.

No Place Like Home #1

There's no place like home, there's no place like home, there's no place home. That rings true for Dee, a converted resident of Emeraldsville, Kansas who had left her parents for the big life in Los Angeles. Angelo Tirotto and Richard Jordan present, in association with Image Comics, the first chapter of their tale featuring a young girl returning home, only to find not everything is as she remembered it.

The seventh issue of S. Steven Struble and Sina Grace's series about the li'l depressed boy named LDB hit store shelves last week. The story chronicles a down-on-his-luck boy who's thrown from one emotional extreme to the next, which is something I think we all know too well.
