    Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #4

      I’m honestly at a loss for words for where to start with Victor LaValle’s Destroyer. I really, really liked the book, don’t get me wrong. But man, is it an insane story. A spiritual sequel to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Destroyer is a modern horror story with the endless...

    Sisters of Sorrow #2 Review

    Spider-Man II Issue 1 Review

    It’s been a long five years since the surprise mini-series Spider-Men dropped. That five-issue mini, also written by Brian Michael Bendis (New Avengers, Ultimate Spider-Man) and Sara Pichelli (Runaways, Ultimate Comics All-New Spider-Man) was a milestone occasion. For the first time ever, the Marvel and Ultimate universes collided as Miles...

    Multiworst: Six of the darkest, bleakest, most despairing alternate Earths in comics
