Wicked and Divine #3

The Wicked and the Divine #5 — Writer: Kieron Gillen;  Art: Jamie McKelvie;  Colors: Matthew Wilson This is a sharp-looking book — you could cut yourself on McKelvie’s precise, thin lines — and the theme’s about death and art, so it can be grim and gory (particularly so in one scene in this issue), but there’s also a warmth in both the words and the pictures, and a passionate humanity at its core that makes everything work. This issue concludes the first arc, and the last scene (which I assume will also be the end of the first trade) is … Continue reading

Multiversity #1

Not a bad week — two hotly-anticipated first issues, plus still-early, you-can-still-get-the-whole-set editions of some really good titles, and assorted other cool stuff too. Let’s look….: Multiversity #1 — Writer: Grant Morrison;  Pencils: Ivan Reis;  Inks: Joe Prado Morrison first announced this years ago, right after Infinite Crisis, so it’s had a long gestation; as the title suggests, it uses the 52 universes (universi?) of the New-52 cosmos as its playground, as a group of heroes gather to try to rescue Nix Uotan, the last Monitor, and protect the multiverse from encroaching evil. There are lots of echoes of earlier … Continue reading

Life With Archie #36

Another week with tons of first issues — there are eleven reviewed here, and that wasn’t even all of them — but first let’s start with a book that’s more a last issue than a first: Life With Archie #36 — Writer: Paul Kupperberg;  Pencils: Pat and Tim Kennedy;  Inks: Jim Amash This is the comic where Archie “dies.” Now, as readers of this website, you’ll no doubt find it easier than civilians to grasp that Life With Archie is set in the future, and has been exploring what happens to the Riverdale gang after high school (in one timeline, Archie … Continue reading

Beasts of Burden #1

Beasts of Burden: Hunters and Gatherers #1 (of 1) — Writer: Evan Dorkin;  Art: Jill Thompson This title, about a group of dogs and cats who fight supernatural menaces to their small town, doesn’t come out very often — once or twice a year if we’re lucky — but it’s always worth the wait, and always ends up on the top of my list. Dorkin is mostly known for his humor (Bill and Ted, back in the day, and Milk and Cheese and Dork, plus the about-to-be released Eltingville Club, a savage-but-loving takedown of comics fans which no one who’s … Continue reading
