The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney

Writer: Duke David Doub

Artist: Marchioness Sarah Elkins

Letterer: Vizcondesa Joamette Gil

Publisher: Dusk Comics

Synopsis: Continuing from Vol. 1, the question must be, “Did Miss Tilney survive?” Of course! Otherwise, The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney would have ended with Vol. 1 and we wouldn’t be here.  That’s as far as spoilers go here. She survived and the adventures continue with Lord Beowulf  Harwood.  We now take a visit to the theatre and what happened to the white tiger after its attack on Miss Tilney? Take a peek for more mayhem, mystery, and murder.

Review: Perhaps I have a slight bias. Miss Tilney being shown as a strong woman AND a writer during the Victorian era continues to thrill me to no end...

Dream Daddy #1

Writer: Wendy Xu

Artist:  Ryan Maniulit

Letterer: Hasan Otsmane-Elhaou

Publisher: Onipress

Synopsis: It’s time for the 15 year college reunion. Time for old college roommates Kegstand Craig and the new dad on the block to go out for a night of memories old and new.  Will it be weird seeing people they haven’t seen in years? Will they be able to avoid old flames? Get set for a promising bro-venture. 

Review: The cover gave me pause at first.  “A Dad Dating Simulator”. Ugh! Is this a kissing book? Was my first thought. Instead I began an immediately interesting story about two former college roommates and their night out. You can immediately feel the bond between the two men. A short search showed there are Youtube videos this comic line is based on...

The Joker / Daffy Duck #1

When I first started writing for Geek-o-Rama I had a schtick. I opened all my reviews with “I have a confession to make”. It seemed like a fun idea to stand out, until it wasn’t. Well here we go again:

I have a confession to make. I really really really expected to hate this, and I am happy to say I was wrong.

Scott Lobdell’s story (brilliantly titled “Why Tho Theriouth”) was spot on. His Joker fell along the lines of Mark Hamil’s characterization, which is probably my favorite Joker. His Daffy hit all the right beats going from happy, to exasperated, to deadpan, to rage, and in the course of one page flipped my whole outlook on what I was getting into. By writing Daffy’s telltale lisp, Lobdell is able to use it as the running gag it should be.

Andrew Dalhouse’s colors worked well througho...
