First Look At The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance #2

On Netflix, one of the best bits of original programming is The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance. Fan service wouldn't be complete without a comic series tie-in. It's always better when they give a little extra story, enriching the TV series. BOOM! Studios has Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance.  I could go on, but let's just give you the press release and preview pages from BOOM! Studios. The book hits shops this week, October 30, 2019.

BOOM! Studios Gives A First Look At Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O

Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O from BOOM! Studios looks so sweet. I complain a lot about press releases. There's a lot of comic news that's just copy and pasted press releases and previews or "first looks" from publishers. It gets to the point that I really feel like there's no real comic book industry news. Of course, then there's the occasional event that happens.

Giant Days #54 – Review

I really wasn't looking forward to this issue. I've really fallen in love with these characters. I'm going to miss reading about them. One of the things about non-mainstream comics is that the stories can end. There's no corporate desire to keep a character published so the merchandising can continue. I'm going to expand on this int he review, so let's get started.

Giant Days #52 – Review

It's refreshing to see a book that I follow shows up in the solicitations for the next week. It seems like the past couple of weeks have been light on comics that I really rave about. I've said many times before that there's nothing to be gained from writing a negative review just for the sake of a negative review. That brings us to the latest issue of Giant Days. Esther de Groot left in the previous issue for a job interview in London. Given that Esther is the member of the cast that things kind of work out for, it wasn't clear how this would affect the series as a whole.

Giant Days #51 – Review

I spent a week of looking at the week's releases for something good worth reviewing, I was thrilled to see Giant Days #51 coming out next week. The last issue left on a very serious cliffhanger, so I was really eager to read this issue.

The Giant Days Project – Volume Two

I've come to love Giant Days, the wonderful slice-of-life comic series from BOOM! Box, an imprint of BOOM! Studios. I love getting the newest issue, but with any character-driven series that has been running a while, I wish I knew the entire history. That's why I've started the Giant Days Project.

Faithless #2 – Review

I went through the review copies sent to us by the publishers. After a pretty lackluster week, I was chomping at the bit to review something. I was almost ready to give up when I saw a cover by Paul Pope. In this day and age, that doesn't mean the same artist on the inside, but if someone chooses Paul Pope to do a cover, then they might just produce the type of comic that I like. So I opened up Faithless #2, ready to be entertained.

Giant Days #46 – Review (with Preview Pages)

Giant Days is quickly becoming one of my favorite regular series. Of course, I still have a little trouble keeping the names of all the characters straight, but reading every issue has become a treat. I was a little late to review the previous issue, which was really good. However, I've managed to get to this one right as it arrived to my inbox.
