The world of the comic book reviewer is as broad as the Internet.  There are millions of opinions, ever more millions of fans, and when you do a quick search, what seems like more competition for views than any one site could master. Continue reading

Lettered by Jim Campbell

Coulrophobia is the fear of clowns.  Anyone who grew up on Stephen King novels has a touch of it, and those who saw Tim Curry’s crazy-good performance as Pennywise the Dancing Clown still shudder at the thought of balloons and how they float.  But for those that weren’t deeply emotionally scarred, there’s a new clown in town.

Letters by Jim Campbell

As I woke up Tuesday morning and stumbled out to my truck, dragging my feet through new-fallen snow I happened to look up and see the red orb of the moon hanging low in the early morning sky.  It is one of those things that help to conjure an image for certain.  How appropriate that the week of the blood moon eclipse also sees the release of Curse #4 from Boom! Studios, the last in a four issue short from Michael Moreci (Hoaxhunters) and Tim Daniel (Enormous). Continue reading

We want our favorite comics to go as long as possible. The Walking Dead just released its 123 issue. Spider-Man went to 700 before the reboot. The Curse…well…The Curse is only going to be four issues.

I know right? How could something this cool only go four issues? The answer is simple. Michael Moreci (Hoaxhunters) and Tim Daniel (Enormous) only need four. Continue reading

Letters by Jim Campbell

Who doesn’t love a werewolf story? Watching people walk through the darkened woods away from their broken down car (get back to the car!), or seeing their wide eyes as their heads whip around at the sound of an unearthly howl (get back to the car!) or seeing the “wolf’s view” as it gets closer and closer Continue reading

REVIEW: “Hoax Hunters” #11

Review by Brad Gischia

Writer – Micheal Moreci & Steve Seeley
Artist – T-Rex Jones
Cover Art – Jason Copland
Cover Colors – Nate Lovett
Letters – Jim Campbell

I’m just going to say it. It’s hard to write about Hoaxhunters. I stare at the computer screen, the white box of waiting for the filling text, the preview screen behind and open, showing me images from the latest issue, and my mind goes blank, my fingers tense and poised. Nothing. Thank you Michael Moreci, for silencing my fingers. Thank you Steve Seeley, for making me hate Microsoft Word, with its blank page and blinking cursor. Continue reading
