Two of Kelly Sue DeConnick’s creator-owned comics released today, this and Bitch Planet 8. While Bitch Planet is a good series about non-compliant women in prison with heavy anti-sexism themes, I find it more enjoyable to talk about Pretty Deadly. … Continue reading

Comics of June 22, 2016

Marvel needs to spread out their titles better. Most of their X-Men team books seem to release on the same week, while All-New Wolverine and Old Man Logan always seem to release on the same week. Meanwhile only a few … Continue reading

Comics of April 13, 2016

Comics of February 3, 2016

So for the first time since I got into comics, I didn’t pick up an Uncanny X-Men issue. UXM2 was not only mediocre on the writing front, but Greg Land’s art was terrible and they needlessly killed off a fan … Continue reading
