Graphic Reviews: Coming Soon! (October)

Coming Soon! (October) Since we’re rolling into pumpkin spice and Halloween season with the start of October, I wanted to take this week to start one of my new planned segments for Graphic Reviews. With the changes to the structure of Graphic Reviews, the first article of each month will […]


Graphic Reviews: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Adaptations of any beloved material are a tricky tightrope to walk. No matter what you do, you’re likely to upset someone. If you don’t stick closely enough to the source material, then fans will feel betrayed (as films like I Am Legend and World […]


Graphic Reviews: DCC Showcase ’17 – Ben Templesmith and Brett Weldele

DCC Showcase ’17: Ben Templesmith and Brett Weldele As continue to count down to the opening of this year’s Denver Comic Con (8 days!), this week I will be talking about a few more of the creators who will be making an appearance at the con this year. Today, I’ll […]


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 […]

Sure, you […]


Graphic Reviews: Banned Books

Banned Books Since last week was technically Banned Books week, I’m a bit belated in celebrating but I wanted to take some time in Graphic Reviews to talk about some fantastic graphic novels that have been banned for one reason or another. All stupid, as cases of censorship generally are. […]


Graphic Reviews: Black Science 1

Graphic Reviews: Black Science As I’ve mentioned a few times before, science fiction is largely hit or miss for me. The genre is capable of imagining incredible (and compellingly believable) futures whose trajectory from the present is very clear to see. Just think of all the great science fiction in […]


Graphic Reviews: The Wake

The Wake I find environmental dystopians to be a rather fascinating genre that seems to have only gathered steam as the debate about climate change ramps up and becomes more important to people in general. Whatever your view on climate change, the idea of the oceans swallowing large parts of […]


Graphic Reviews: Beauty

Beauty Image Comics was kind enough to allow me to read a digital galley of this volume so I am pleased to review¬†the series this week. For all that we might claim that “beauty is only skin deep,” we sure spend a lot of time pursuing it. Every age has […]
