Review: Starve #2

(Image Comics 2015)

Created by Brian Wood, Danijel Zezelj, and Dave Stewart

Lettering and Production by Steve Wands

Class discrimination has always been a convenient screen to show the sins of the past in a futuristic setting. Films like Blade Runner and Total Recall highlighted what one man can do to change the dominant paradigm, to reset the classes in a way that is more fair and equitable for everyone. Continue reading

REVIEW: ‘Funrama’ #1- 3

(Self Published, 2014)

Created by Ryan Kelly

I love going blindly forward into a new comic. For the longest time I’ve been a “judge a book by its’ cover” kind of guy (Apologies to Mrs. Paulson, my high school librarian), but in the comic book industry that is generally a good way to stick to stuff you like.

REVIEW: “Star Wars” #2

(Dark Horse Comics, 2013)

Review by Cory Thrall

Dark Horse made a very curious and dangerous move with the announcement of their new ‘Star Wars’ title, one that obviously would be taken pretty seriously by a ton of comic and Star Wars fans.  The issue being, of course, that this would be focusing on the main characters from the original films, and would be a story taking place between ‘Star Wars’ and ‘the Empire Strikes Back’.  Truth be told, when I had heard that this title was coming, I was very surprised.
