Review: Gargoyles #1

This is a solid introduction to the comic book world spin off of a popular animated show from the 90’s. The sun may have set on the old canon but that just means the new can break out of the stone sleep and try something new. Judging from this it should be good.

Review: Barbaric Hell to Pay #1

I’m so glad to be back in the world of Barbaric. All these volumes run into each other building up an epic story that doesn’t skimp on the characters at the heart of it. There’s some interesting developments of older plot threads and to have such strong continuity is a bonus as the world feels so fleshed out. I am excited to see what happens next in this arc.

Review: Bloodshot Unleashed #4

“This is a good Bloodshot issue in a short run that is the best take on the character for years. It’s pays homage to the established character with the more thoughtful outlook whilst also delivering on action and violence. It’s a book that deals with trauma, doesn’t shy away from PTSD whilst also delivering classic comic book action. That’s not always an easy balance but is successful here.”

Review: Lower Decks #3

The big question is does this final issue both live up expectations and end satisfyingly? It does indeed! It’s also crammed full of the usual references to all things Trek, plenty of humour, actual illusions to science and Boimler in a cape. There’s also action, space battles and computer hacking sentient holograms. Phew.

Review: Kaya #2

I really enjoyed this issue, probably more than the first one. This just felt like it was more assured, more comfortable with the world. That’s how a second issue should be and isn’t always. Kaya though is doing the right things. I’m looking forward to more.

Review: Deadliest Bouquet #3

This third issue feels like things are settling into their stride. The focus on the family, the dynamics of family works really well. This is where the potential of that first issue really seems to take off. The central murder mystery I am sure will be back but hopefully this importance of family will also be carried through as it works so well.
