Alterna Comics is a new discovery for me, but they’ve got a slick looking lineup of books that I’m excited to explore in the near future. Chief among the books to pique my curiosity is Mr. Crypt, a promising little piece crafted by Troy Vevasis and Aleksandar Jovic.

‘Ultimate Spider-Man #1’ Review

My faith in Marvel Comics has been plummeting for years. Just the same, the publisher plays host to one of my favorite superheroes in existence: Spider-Man. Amazing always had me hooked, and both Spectacular and Web of were also mighty fine books. But I’ve been away from the character for a long time, and returning, I noticed that there are a number of new and different books out there, so I ended up with a few issues of Ultimate Spider-Man.

The View from the Trailer Park – Those Lips, Those Eyes. ‘Wonder Woman’

Written by: Daniel McDonald

In 1980, a little known, little seen film about a Summer Stock Theater Company in 1951, starring Frank Langella, (DRACULA) Thomas Hulce ,(ANIMAL HOUSE, AMADEUS) and Glynis O’Conner (ODE TO BILLY JOE- what the hell happened to her?) with an interesting title that has stuck with me as clear as a bell for 37 years THOSE LIPS, THOSE EYES opened to better than average press. I saw the little romantic comedy, enjoyed it for what it was, and pretty much forgot about the film, but for some odd reason, not that damn title.

‘Black Road Volume 1: The Holy North’ Review

I’ve never been huge on vintage tales riddled with warriors and religious types, but Image Comics, and more specifically, writer Brian Wood and artist Garry Brown have got me questioning my previous opinion. Black Road Volume 1 is nothing short of amazing.

Silent Hill: Dead Alive #01 Review

I’ve always been a little bewildered when it comes to the Silent Hill franchise. Sometimes the stories are smooth operating machines with clear characters, conflicts and conclusions. And then again sometimes you come across a book like Dead Alive, and don’t have the slightest clue what the hell is going on. Oh, how I wished this one hadn’t been so abstract, but hey – we’ll get through it!

‘Harrow County #10’ Review

Things are relatively quiet in Harrow County. But the serenity that can be found here is on the cusp of falling apart, and we see the signals coming the moment we see a menacing black water moccasin turn its attention on old Uncle Early. That fateful encounter alone sets a new conflict in motion. It’s a conflict that will lead us directly into the clutches of the mysterious and intimidating old coot, Lady Lovey.

Hack/Slash vs. Chucky is Bloody Insane (Review)

I don’t think I’ve ever read a Hack/Slash book I’ve been disappointed in. The same can be said of the Chucky books I’ve managed to get my hands on. They make for great reads, and the potential for insanity is all the greater in this wonderful medium. What’s not to love, really?
