Skyman 1 (January 2014)

Skyman is real close to being in my “why would I want to read this” stack. It’s generally okay. The art is strange–mainstream superhero with angst; it’s unclear if Manuel Garcia isn’t doing enough on the pencils and Bit has to fill in on the inks or if Bit is inking in the Sturm und […]

The Bunker 4 (6 November 2013)

This issue reads distressingly fast. Without even establishing the character he’s focusing on, Fialkov skips to the future. He might just open in the future.

Fialkov has a couple nice little details here–he introduces this teenage girl who hunts vampires and, while it’s not just derivative in essence of “Buffy” but also Kick-Ass a little, he does it well. Unfortunately, […]
