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 [...]

The Talking Dead: Jonathan Hickman Gets Verbose

April 7, 2015 // 0 Comments

This week, kind of a rarity for the Dork Forty: a negative review. As I’ve said before, I prefer to talk about things I like, rather than hate on things I don’t. Plus… I don’t buy too many comics that I don’t enjoy anymore. I’ve been reading these things a long time, and have learned what to avoid. Sometimes, though, something slips through. I’ll try [...]

Villainy, Horror, and a Many-Boobed Cyclops: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!

March 10, 2015 // 0 Comments

Alright. Last week’s bad-mood diatribe has left us with two weeks’ worth of funnybooks to discuss. There’s no way I’ll get to them all, but let’s try and plow through the highlights… Darth Vader 2, by Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca May I just say again… Sassiest. Vader. Ever. The comic’s pretty good, too. This second issue is a fun, tight [...]

Dork Awards 2014, Part Three: Best Funnybook

January 25, 2015 // 0 Comments

And here we are, back for the final installment of the 2014 Dork Awards. I have to admit, much as I wanted to avoid this thing getting repetitious, it still got away from me. Between the previous categories, and all the reviews of these books I’ve written over the course of the year, I couldn’t escape the feeling that I’ve said all this stuff before. Ah, well. Such is the way of [...]

Dork Awards 2014: Writer and Artist of the Year

January 13, 2015 // 0 Comments

Aaaand, we’re back! Real life got in the way a bit last week, and so I didn’t get to the second round of the Dork Awards. But now I’ve chopped out a hollow spot in my schedule, so let’s get crackin’! This week, we’re shifting gears a bit, to discuss specific creators rather than specific books. Honestly, this whole thing was a lot easier last year, when we [...]

The Week of the Bitch: FUNNYBOOKSINREVIEWAREGO!!!

December 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

After that headline, I suppose we should just launch right on into this thing, shouldn’t we…? Bitch Planet 1, by Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro This is some bad ass shit here, folks. A feminist polemic disguised as an exploitation comic. A darkly funny near-future satire. A sci-fi “women in cages” book complete with violence, nudity, sleaze, and my new favorite line [...]

Roses and Trees: Warren Ellis Returns to Form

October 21, 2014 // 5 Comments

So have I mentioned how much I’m enjoying Warren Ellis’ recent work? Holy crap, that guy’s on a roll. His recently-completed run on Moon Knight was fun, but it’s his other two current projects that have really impressed me. I hesitate to say this is the best work of his career, but it might just be. It’s something new and interesting from him, at the very least, and [...]
