Letterer: Rachel Deering

Review: This is not your childhood Archie comic book. In fact, this is one that you get to keep for your own reading pleasure without needing to share it with the kids.

Portal Bound #3-4

A few months ago I mentioned that one of my more recent comic discoveries is Aspen Comics. (Which is fairly embarrassing, since we often review them here at Geek-o-Rama.) This year marks their 15th anniversary and they show no sign of slowing down. So when the opportunity to review issues #0-2 of Portal Bound, I was quite excited. So much so, that I’m here with issues #3 and 4.

Portal Bound takes us into a new world, or more accurately two new worlds. One is the earth as we know it, as seen through the eyes of a young teenage boy, Eli.

Interview with Drew Edwards – Writer of Lucy Chaplin: Science Starlet

They’ve battled everything from space dwarves, the Loch Ness monster, the Headless Horseman, vegan vampires, and even the Invisible Man. We have a lot of fun making it and I think that translates onto the page.

 

The comic has existed for nearly two decades in a number of different formats. It began as a web comic and it’s currently an ongoing series on ComiXology, with various annuals and crossovers tied into it...

Bella and the Beam originally appeared as a serialized comic in the girl’s comic magazine Tammy and June in 1974 and 1975. It follows a precocious and driven young girl named Bella Barlow as she turns a chance encounter in an opportunity that leads her into the world of gymnastics.
