Presidents play golf. That’s what they do when they are not working on policy, running the free world, or managing their political career. That’s what they do, right?  Well that’s what everyone thinks they do. It’s what we see on the news. But is that really what they do in their spare time?

President Theodore Voyage doesn’t particularly like golf. No, he would rather spend his free time pursuing his favorite pastime: murder.

Reading this book was a mixed blessing from beginning to end...

YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS CH. 1

Written by Greg Weisman

Art by Christopher Jones

Color by Kelly Fitzpatrick

Letters by Wes Abbott

THE DEAL: I’m going to preface this by warning folks that if you’re an avid DC fan, I’m not the reviewer for you. I’m a comic lover, but I’m not particularly enthusiastic about either of the Big Two. With that out of the way…

Young Justice: Outsiders brings together the scions of the League’s foremost champions: Batgirl, Superboy, Miss Martian … and of course, the ever-present Beast Boy. Together, they fight evil wherever it rears its exposed brain, while working through the challenges that come with being normal hormonal teenagers who hang out on an asteroid and wear spandex every moment of their lives.

THE GOOD: Something I look for in all my comic art is facial expression, and that’s some...

Bust #1

BUST #1

Bust issue 1 cover

When this black and white turned up in my inbox I was thrilled to read a second comic about a fighter. I tell you I am so sick of vampire and zombie comics. Then I start reading.

At least it is still about a guy that’s a street fighter brought to life by award winning author Dave Cook. This is Dave and Chris’ first comic and they have come a long way since 2015.

The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney #3

Writer: David Doub

Artist:Irene Koh

Letterer: Joamette Gil

Publisher: Dusk Publishing

Synopsis: The third in a trilogy that rounds out the story of the framing of Lord Harwood and the tiger attack on Miss Tilney. This one will leave you saying, “Wow! Did that just happen?”

Review: These stories are always fun and I look forward to seeing more about the adventures of Miss Tilney and Lord Harwood. I had to re-read a few parts twice with a — “Did I just see… Yes, I did” double take. As much as I enjoy the graphics and the look of beautiful Miss Tilney, I especially enjoy the story snippets that tell the reader a little more about the adventures that Lord Harwood has experienced...

PRINCELESS VOL. 7

Written by Jeremy Whitley

Pencils by Emily Martin

Inks by Ainhoa Aramayo

Colors and Letters by Brett Grunig

THE DEAL: Humans and elves are at war. Dragons and sphinxes populate the land. Desert kingdoms and forest villages alike are caught up in the political schemes of … wait. Princesses are literally waiting in towers for a prince to rescue them?

Not all of them. A myriad of characters explore a world of fantasy tropes – and smash ’em to bits, one by one.

THE GOOD: I love a good genre-bender! It’s clearly written for a younger audience, but the dialogue is still tight and punchy, and each character has a unique voice that gives the world life...
