Mage Returns, Chaykin Offends, and Fudd Gets Serious: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!

July 18, 2017 // 1 Comment

So I’m feeling a bit tuckered out tonight. Not horribly so, but enough that I just don’t have much to say in the way of catchy titles and clever introductions. Let’s just get this show on the road. Mage: The Hero Denied 0 by Matt Wagner  So wow. Matt Wagner’s finally had enough life experience to write the third volume of Mage. For anyone not familiar with the series, [...]

Independents’ Day

July 4, 2017 // 0 Comments

So in spite of the hatchet job I performed on that new Defenders comic last week, I really do think that, in terms of content, we’re living in a new funnybook Golden Age. The work-for-hire stuff trundles along, solidly average with occasional moments of greatness. But in the ranks of independent comics (which is to say, comics owned by their creators rather than a Faceless Corporate [...]

One Bad Apple Doesn’t Spoil the Bunch: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

February 21, 2017 // 0 Comments

So last week was, for the most part, a really good week for funnybooks. An old favorite returned, current favorites continued, a new series started… In fact, I think we’ll start there, if only to get it out of the way. Because not all of last week’s comics were created equal… The Wild Storm 1 by Warren Ellis and Jon Davis-Hunt  This has been a rather hotly-anticipated [...]

So here we are again, reviewing funnybooks. Been awhile. Longer than I’d intended, honestly. But I need to recharge my batteries on these things every so often, and I guess the last month or two has been my time to do that. So let’s see if we can’t hit the ground running now that we’re back… Jessica Jones 3 by Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Gaydos I’ve been [...]

Blood, Blood, and More Blood: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

October 25, 2016 // 0 Comments

So it’s been a good couple of weeks for funnybooks here lately. Lots of great books well-worth discussing. But unfortunately, I’m going on vacation this week, and don’t have time to cover it all. So I’ll have to hit the highlights, centering on the Halloween-appropriate theme of blood… The Black Monday Murders 3 by Jonathan Hickman and Tomm Coker I think I may have [...]

Vigilantes, Spies, and Batman: Highlights From a Month of Wednesdays

August 23, 2016 // 0 Comments

So I’ve been putting this off and putting this off, but now… I’ve got some catching up to do. There’s easily a full month’s worth of unreviewed funnybooks sitting on my desk (maybe more), and I’ve gotta knock that stack down. Don’t know if I’ll get to it all tonight, but we’re gonna give it a shot. So, without further ado… [...]
