“This was a really fun second issue. There was plot, action and bears. Honestly the best bear fight you will see in a comic this year. I enjoyed it quite a bit.”
“This is another strong issue. I love how this expands out the mythology and detail, pushing things in a new direction. Not to mention there’s the usual great art designs and action scenes. I am intrigued as to where the Armorclads will go next and what lies in the future for the new and improved Ironclads.”
This week Angela and Zach are back to discuss a Zach book as they are teaming up (again) to discuss A Thing Called Truth by Iolanda Zanfardino and Elisa Romboli from Shadowline & Image Comics!
“I didn’t think it was going to happen after the last arc, but Crossover #13 has brought back my enthusiasm for the series and I’m genuinely excited to see what will come next.”
“This was another great look into the world of Time Before Time.”
This week Angela and Zach are teaming up to discuss Hellcop!
“I am delighted to say this is an excellent return to form for Archer & Armstrong. This was a really good first issue with writing that got the characters and wrote them well, with art that worked for the characters and effective and fun lettering. I enjoyed everything about this issue and it was great to see the boys back on form.”
“While there’s still a lot we don’t know about the world of Blood Stained Teeth I feel like we’re given a strong introduction in this first issue and I’m looking forward to seeing where the series will lead.”
“I did really enjoy this issue. I thought the art was clever and the style really helped get across the trauma of poor Peter being shot in the head. The different elements were all really strongly done. As before my main complaint is I feel we could have more. It’s at least set things up ready for the finale, where I suspect we’ll get something of a major showdown. A solid issue that I think anyone who has read Harbinger up to this point will appreciate.”
It’s the end of April and we’re rounding up four first issues from the month gone by!
“This is a really strong start to the second arc. Now the setup has been established it feels like more fun can be had in the universe and this certainly takes some classic concepts like Sasquatch and runs with it. It’s still got a fresh feel but it also has the benefit of strongly established characters and a distinct voice and tone which really works. I’m very much onboard for the next part of the Hellcop ride.”
“This issue had everything I love about Shadow Service, emotion, plot twists, demons, humour and some drama. Honestly this is an excellent return for Shadow Service after its break. I very much enjoyed it and am looking forward to seeing how that cliff hanger at the end turns out. Plus it had a Randall and Hopkirk reference so that alone makes it A+ for me.”

This week Will and Zach are teaming up to discuss the first volume of A Righteous Thirst For Vengeance by Rick Remender, André Lima Araújo, Chris O’Halloran and Rus Wooton from Image Comics!
“The art is exciting, the plot building and the writing are solid. The pacing is excellent. This is a book I think I will very much enjoy going forward. Armorclads is a book that is showing off some excellent potential.”
“This was just a perfect finale to what has been an excellent book. I cannot recommend The Good Asian highly enough. It’s an intriguing crime drama, it’s got great characters, wonderful art in both composition and colour, solid lettering. It has a message and tells a history that’s important. It juggles some really strong themes with twists and turns in the narrative.”
