Graphic Reviews: Tokyo Ghost

Tokyo Ghost Science fiction has long been trying to answer the question of whether technology is likely to bring more good or more ill to humanity and society in general and in large part, cyberpunk has been a part of that conversation. Whether it’s Ghost in the Shell or Neuromancer […]


Graphic Reviews: Chrononauts

Chrononauts As a reader, it’s good to find creators (authors or illustrators) who push the boundaries of what’s considered acceptable in a genre. If you read too much of the same thing, you can get stuck in a rut and miss out on interesting ideas just because they don’t fit […]


Graphic Reviews: Mirror: The Mountain

Mirror: The Mountain Since I started reading graphic novels in college (more than a decade ago now), I’ve noticed a change in the perception of them and yet, they still remain one of the more undervalued genres in literature. There’s long been an assumption that graphic novels are just silly […]


Graphic Reviews: Mythic   Recently updated !

Mythic Since the very beginning of humanity, we have struggled between belief and skepticism. Do we explain thunder as the stomping around of a magical being in the sky or as a natural process involving the sudden increase in pressure and temperature caused by lightning? The more sophisticated humans have become […]


Graphic Reviews: Wolf

Wolf In previous articles, I’ve talked a fair amount about genre mash-ups that take disparate elements and somehow fit them together in a seamless whole. One of the best combinations of genres has been noir and horror and there are plenty brilliant examples of that, especially with creator combinations like Ed […]


Graphic Reviews: A Taste of History

A Taste of History Ever since I was small, I’ve loved stories. The source has never really mattered, I just loved hearing about lives beyond my own. Gifted storytellers, family members, books and even TV and movies have all provided me with lovely ones. I think the greatest appeal of […]


Graphic Reviews: Monstress

Monstress While I’ve never done much writing myself, the techniques that go into the craft have always fascinated me. In the realm of speculative fiction, two things can make or break a story: worldbuilding and pacing. While there are plenty of other important elements, these are the two that I […]


Graphic Reviews: Five Ghosts

Five Ghosts The horror genre is always a tricky thing for me. While I do admittedly love over the top violence and silliness like in the brilliant TV show, Ash vs the Evil Dead, it seems like much of the genre relies on torture porn to convey its thrills and chills. […]


Graphic Reviews: Mara

Mara For as long as I’ve been reading, I’ve always felt myself drawn to speculative fiction. While I don’t necessarily dislike general fiction, there’s just so much possibility inherent in science fiction and fantasy. There are so many themes that can be explored in the sneakiest of ways. Sure, you […]


Graphic Reviews: The Fuse

The Fuse Those who know me (and anyone who reads these articles) knows that I have a deep abiding love of Ed Brubaker’s writing. In large part, this is because Brubaker takes a genre which I tend to have relatively little interest in (crime/noir) and brings such depth and intensity […]
