This week Matt and Will are teaming up to discuss Chainsaw Man by Tatsuki Fujimoto!
This week Will and Zach got together to discuss the first volume of Frontiersman by Patrick Kindlon, Marco Ferrari, Jim Campbell and James Heppelwhite from Image Comics!
“It’ll come as no surprise if you’ve read any of my previous reviews, but I thought this was a really strong issue of Home Sick Pilots”
“Up until this point Rain had been a relatively direct adaptation of the source material, but this issue was a welcome change, and one that’s got me looking forward to seeing what other surprises the creative team have in store now that they’ve begun to put their own spin on Joe Hill’s story.”
“This is a good issue of Crossover and in some moments it almost feels like we’re getting back to the heights of the first volume, which is something I’ve been hoping for these last few issues.”
This week we’re rounding up four of February’s indie first issues!
“I was surprised when I picked up this second issue, but I’m glad I did, and I’ll definitely be back for more next month.”
“I’m still not entirely sure where the story is heading, but I’m looking forward to finding out.”
“I did enjoy parts of this volume, though I think more time could’ve been afforded to investigate the possibilities of such a promising zone.”
“As an anthology series, each issue of The Silver Coin brings something a little different and it’s always interesting to see the approach the writer will take and the direction the story will go in. In the case of Vita Ayala I feel like we’re focusing on a part of New York’s history that they feel is perhaps overlooked, while also taking on a monkey paw type of horror story that we saw back in the first issue of the series, but in a very different way.”
“Joe Hill’s Rain #2 expands well on the first issue, developing both the characters we’ve already been introduced to and the terrifying world they’re now living in. It’s also successful at introducing new characters and maintaining the mystery of the world. I’m looking forward to seeing what the next three issues of this series will hold.”
“It’s challenging to find new ways to tell you how good a series this is. This has been a standout issue for me, and honestly I cannot recommend Home Sick Pilots enough.”
“So two volumes into Undiscovered Country and I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about it as a series.”
“A Thing Called Truth is a wonderful, enjoyable read and this is another great instalment. Zanfardino and Romboli create a believable story full of comedy, drama and the beginning of romance.”
“There are some big moments in this issue, but I am missing the character focus in Ellie and Ryan that we had in earlier issues.”
It’s our first monthly round-up of 2022!
