REVIEW: ‘Curse’ #4

(BOOM! Studios, 2014)

Written by Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel
Art by Riley Rossmo and Colin Lorimer
Additional Colors by Tamra Bonvillain
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

REVIEW: ‘Curse’ #3

(BOOM! Studios, 2014)

Written by Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel

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

REVIEW: ‘Curse’ #2

(BOOM! Studios, 2014)

Written by Michael Moreci and Tim Daniel
Art by Riley Rossmo and Colin Lorimer
Additional Colors by Tamra Bonvillian
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

BrainTrust: Following Monkeybrain Comics, Ep.3

This week I’ve decided to focus again on some of the fantastic and original work coming out of Monkeybrain Comics. It’s a beautiful thing to see a small company backing creators as they produce their original work. Those are the kinds of business practices that are redeeming in this country, a chance for us to see what can happen when creators are given free reign. And with that kind of business you attract the kinds of people you want in that business. Continue reading

Bag and Bored’s ‘Best Of 2013’: BRAD GISCHIA

BEST OF 2013
with Brad Gischia

I began reviewing comics for Bagandbored.net about six months ago.  I was so fired up to get into it, but I specified, when I talked to our fearless leader, Cory, that I would be in more than a little bit of a jam when it comes to reviewing books.  I am not near a comic store.  So to get a gig that is so centered on ever changing wall books, or even monthly, well…it wouldn’t be easy.

Everyone has seen how Kickstarter has changed the indie comics industry.  If you have a good idea and good talent there is nothing that can stop you from getting funding.  Millions of people see the site and donate daily to projects they feel strongly about.  What happens when you take a seasoned comic professional and add the Kickstarter gene into the pool?  In the Dark happens.  Thank you Rachel Deering.

REVIEW: “Skybreaker” #1

(Monekybrain Comics, 2013)

Reviewed by Jared Butler

Writer:  Michael Moreci
Artwork:  Drew Zucker
Lettering:  Frank J. Barbiere

I think most people by now have seen and/or read their fair share of westerns and are familiar with the usual cast of characters to be found in them.  “Skybreaker” is no exception – you’ve got the Anti-Hero: in search of revenge and has nothing left to lose.  The villain: a highly intelligent and manipulative gang leader, armed with the Word of God and a pack of half-witted henchmen.  Throw in a few side characters (who will undoubtedly have an impact on the main plot at some point) and you can call it ‘soup’.
