Review: We Can Never Go Home #2

Whenever a series starts off as strongly as We Can Never Go Home did, I really worry about the second issue. I'm always happy when the second issue continues to maintain the high quality of the first issue and doesn't let me down. For a proper understanding of how much I liked the first issue, go and read my review, then read the review of this issue. Then, make a way to get your hands on copies of them, either physically or digitally.

Review: Afterlife With Archie #8

I've heard a lot about Afterlife With Archie, and have been enjoying the Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina a little, so when the opportunity came to review the latest issue of the series that launched the Archie Horror line, I couldn't resist, despite my usual disdain for zombies.

Review: Swords Of Sorrow #1

I have been very hesitant about this crossover Dynamite is putting together with all of their female characters, but see the definite potential in it, and seeing Gail Simone heading it up has me hoping for the best. After seeing three of the variant covers for this issue, I was very worried about what was ahead.

Review: Jem And The Holograms #2

After my review of the first issue, I was really eager to read the second issue of Jem and the Holograms. What's best is that not only wasn't I disappointed, I enjoyed it better than the first, and there's not many comic book series that I can say that about. I'm just really happy that this comic exists.

Review: Convergence – Superboy & The Legion of Super-Heroes #1

I was really underwhelmed by Convergence #0, which was meant to introduce all of this event to us, but looked forward to this one, being a huge fan of the Legion. Don't believe me? Well, the thing I hate more than reading a bad comic is reading a bad comic that I really wanted to love.

Review: Doctor Who: The Ninth Doctor #1

Christopher Eccleston only had one season as the Doctor, but his incarnation is what re-established a fan base for the next ten years of Doctor Who. Titan Comics has gone back to explore the moments in between the episodic adventures of the Ninth Doctor. For reference, it appears that it falls after the events of "The Doctor Dances," but could be after "Boom Town." Nevertheless, this mini-series gives us more of a look at the adventures of the Ninth Doctor and his companions, Rose Tyler and Captain Jack Harkness.

Review: Convergence #0

Well, DC's big event leading into summer has started, with Convergence #0 introducing the concept that will take up two months of your life as you wait for your favorite titles to resume. I try to keep the reviews here as positive as possible, since these are people's lives. I don't set out to write a bad review and reserve those for titles from major publishers that are given a lot of hype. Convergeance #0 fits that bill, so good or bad, I was going to review it.

Review: Empowered Unchained

This week, Dark Horse released a collection of specials from Adam Warren's series Empowered, about a super-heroine known less for her successes and more for her failures, namely her propensity to get tied up by super-villains. Adam Warren has built a entire world of super-heroes around this characters exploits, some by dipping into archetypes and some taking ideas and giving them a humorous twist. The book is definitely for mature readers, Dark Horse recommends ages 16 and up, so be warned that some content is very mature, of a sexual nature, although no explicit nudity is shown and several curse words are censored.

Review: Jem And The Holograms #1

IDW has had a lot of press behind the launch of their new Jem & the Holograms series, so it seems only right to give it a read and tell you about it. I was personally looking forward to it given that I'm prone to like old ideas given a new spin, and for the most part it works. I'm going to give you a spoiler alert, but I'll still try not to ruin it for anyone.

Review: The Valiant #4

We don't get to review many Valiant comics, but after talking to them on Saturday, I felt that the time was right to review one, and since this issue came out this week, it's elected. I've been wanting to get engrossed in all of the intertwined Valiant titles after reading the guidebook I picked up at last year's Free Comic Book Day, and so I opted with this one, featuring several of the Valiant characters. I wasn't prepared for what I discovered while reading it.

Review: Spider-Gwen#2

The real test of a new series is if the momentum from a first issue can continue and the characters can develop further. You may remember that in the first issue, I wanted more development of Gwen's life aside from being Spider-Woman. Looks like I needn't have worried.
