The Dissolving Classroom

What can I say about Junji Ito that I haven’t said a million times already? As well as being this writer’s favorite manga-ka (manga creator) with his unique and terrifying vision of the grotesque, he should be yours too! So you can imagine my surprise when I learned that not only has he released a […]

Rick and Morty #27

What can be said about Rick and Morty that hasn’t been said by Youtube channels and stoners for the past three years? Yes, it’s one of the most original and clever shows to have graced animated entertainment since Futurama. Yes, the humor of the show does speak to the human experience while pointing out the […]

Invader Zim #40

For those of us who were teens in the late 90s to early 2000s and loved Marilyn Manson and JNCO jeans more than life itself, the name Jhonen Vasquez is very familiar. If you didn’t go through puberty like a butterfly of bad fashion, Jhonen Vasquez was the creator of such underground comics as Johnny […]

Comic Review: Head Lopper

By Svetlana Fedotov Boy, do I sure love me some sword fantasy! Over the top monsters, bare-chested swordsmen, forged and broken alliances, and more wolves than you can shake a stick at. Head Lopper has all that in spades! Image Comics’ newest fantasy release, Head Lopper follows the traditional manly man of barbarian tropes and […]

Comic Review: Wolf #1

By Svetlana Fedotov Well, here we are, another comic about a supernatural detective who’s seen too much and is SO over it. Of course, there’s a wildly vast array of characters with weird faces whom the populace may or may not see and uh, vampires? Yeah vampires. So of course, you’re asking, ‘Svetlana, why are […]

Comic Review: The Island #1

By Svetlana Fedotov Comic anthologies are hard to pull off. There’s always someone that doesn’t pick up the slack in one of the stories, whether it’s the crap art or dull dialogue, and that one anchor can weigh down the entire ship. Luckily for The Island, while perhaps a mixed bag of story quality, it […]

Puppet Master: The Comic

By Svetlana Fedotov Though perhaps not one of the biggest horror franchises in the movie industry, Puppet Master has managed to carve itself out a nice little niche in the cult film scene. In fact, the little murdering puppets (or muppets as I like to call them) have proven so oddly popular that they have […]

Comic Review: Archie vs. Predator

By Svetlana Fedotov For anyone who has ever read a comic in the past sixty years, the name Archie is synonymous with goofy teenage antics, love triangles, and cheesy quips that were never-really-that-funny-now-that-I-think-about-it. And, like any work that’s been around for as long as the graphic word itself, Archie and Co. have crossed paths with […]

Comic Review: Hexed #1

By Svetlana Fedotov When DC comics invented Vertigo over twenty years ago, there was a certain elemental magic to it that was never quite seen again; a type of connection between reader and creator that was lined with blood, the occult, and the dark magic of the earth itself. Whilst, for the most part, DC/Vertigo […]

Comics Review: Dark Ages #1

By Svetlana Fedotov Arguably one of the most brutal periods in human history, the Dark Ages were so impeccably grim that being sold into medieval prostitution and dying of consumption were perhaps the highlights of your short and miserable life. Alright, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but this particular dim era in our few thousand […]
