“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!
“This is a superbly constructed issue introducing new elements and building the already well developed characters, while never overlooking the details in the story being told.”
“If you’re not reading The Silver Coin yet, pick up whichever issue you see and get caught up, they’re all strong starting points in this anthology.”
“Rain #1 establishes a world where horrific events can happen at a moment’s notice, but the creative team also work together to create an intriguing cast of characters who will be forced to face the world they now find themselves in.”
This week Angela and Zach are teaming up to discuss one of their favourite series from the past year, Time Before Time!
“A Thing Called Truth is a funny and emotional read, balancing both well to create a narrative that feels entirely heartfelt while maintaining a lighthearted feel.”
This week Angela and Zach are discussing one of Bigger Than Capes favourite books from the past year: X-O Manowar!
“The parallels between the two narratives are where the book really shines, and they allow for the creative team to dig into so many different themes at the same time. It’s just such a well structured story. Each issue brings us closer to answers about what’s really going on: is Sam daydreaming about saving the universe, or is he really in two places at once?”
This week is our December 2021 Round-Up!
