“Brooklyn Gladiator” from Dan Fogler

While I was attending Phoenix Comic Fest over Memorial Day, I picked up a copy of a new project from Dan Fogler (FanBoys, Fantasic Beasts and Where to Find Them): Brooklyn Gladiator Now, this preview issue is a bit of a marketing tool (being neither necessarily complete or 100% fixed in its story elements), as … Continue reading “Brooklyn Gladiator” from Dan Fogler

No’madd – Graphic Novel Review

A couple of weeks ago, while I was out in LA for "Stan Lee's LA Comic Con," I ran across a booth featuring a graphic novel from AK Comics titled No'madd: The City of Empty Towers    The art was intriguing enough for me to stop and inquire, and it was my luck to be … Continue reading No’madd – Graphic Novel Review

“Angelology” by Danielle Trussoni – a Review

A book I was very excited about reading, Danielle Trussoni's Angelology is, apparently, the first of a trilogy. Normally, I wouldn't have picked the book up at all, as I'm generally (but not always) opposed on principle to sequels as simple money grabs, but since I didn't know that at the time... The book starts … Continue reading “Angelology” by Danielle Trussoni – a Review

The Asylum – John Harwood, a Review

I've had The Asylum, by John Harwood, on my bookshelf for quite a while, and I finally decided I was going to read it. My first mistake was waiting so long to read it. I could barely make it 30 pages in to this book before the banality and roteness of it wore me down … Continue reading The Asylum – John Harwood, a Review

“The Yard” by Alex Grecian

Victorian London: a violent cesspool of squalid depravity. Only twelve detectives--the Murder Squad--are expected to solve the thousands of crimes committed here each moth. Formed after the Metropolitan Police's spectacular failure in capturing Jack the Ripper, the Murder Squad suffers the brunt of public contempt. But no one can anticipate the brutal murder of one … Continue reading “The Yard” by Alex Grecian

“Ready Player One” Ernest Cline

I had heard so many good things about "Ready Player One" that I finally broke down, bought it and read it. This book is ridiculously full of bits of pop-culture trivia going all the way back to the 1980s, and sometimes even further, as our hero, Parzival, attempts to win the internet, as the joke … Continue reading “Ready Player One” Ernest Cline

“Enigma”, issue 3 – Quad M Productions

I recently got my hands on issue 3 of the four-part "Genesis" story-line I mentioned in my post on issues 1 and 2, HERE. Once you've read that, you pretty much have a grasp on what I think about this title from a technical standpoint. I'm still not sold completely on the coloring aspect of … Continue reading “Enigma”, issue 3 – Quad M Productions

“Super” – Jay Crow Comics review (issues 2 and 3)

Sorry, this is going to be fairly quick, but hopefully informative. I picked up issues 2 and 3 of the Jay Crow Comics title, Super, at the Salt Lake Comic Con last month. I was previously able to review the initial issue (HERE), and was looking forward to getting my hands on the next ones, … Continue reading “Super” – Jay Crow Comics review (issues 2 and 3)

“Hank Hudson” by Clark Chamberlain

At Salt Lake Comic Con 2015, I was given a copy of Hank Hudson, written by Clark Chamberlain, in exchange for a review. Finally, after almost a month, I have cleared the decks enough to actually read the book, and now present to you, and the author, the promised review. But first, let's get the basics … Continue reading “Hank Hudson” by Clark Chamberlain

“You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost)” by Felicia Day – Review

So I spent several hours the other day starting and finishing Felicia Day's recently-released memoir, "You're Never Weird on the Internet (almost)," and now it's time for the (pretty darned good) review. So let's begin. First, it would be easy to think of a "memoir" by any 36-year old to be simply a vanity project, designed to … Continue reading “You’re Never Weird on the Internet (almost)” by Felicia Day – Review
