Knights Temporal #1 Review 8.3

I can’t lie, I’m a sucker for a good play on words and that’s what attracted me to Knights Temporal #1. I’m happy to say, though, that my compulsion brought me to a really fun read.

Mary Shelley: Monster Hunter #1 Review 8.3

There’s been a trend in recent years, especially in pop culture, of making historical figures into chasers of the supernatural or monsters. The biggest one of these I can recall has been Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.The latest part of that trend is taking place in an AfterShock comic that focuses on the creator of the Frankenstein tale, attempting to explain how she wrote it in the first place. She experienced it first-hand!

COMICS PORTAL: 2019 Is ‘The Year of Reading Dangerously’

I’m a big believer in variety in my reading. Yes, I buy a lot of superhero comics, but I’m also fascinated by mysteries, crime stories and other kinds of storytelling. I wish I could tell you what I’m going to like, but I often don’t know until I see it. One of my favorite comics companies is AfterShock, and they’ve declared 2019 “The Year of Reading Dangerously.”

Pestilence #1 Review

You’ve got to admit it – zombies are still HOT, no matter what time period they’re found in. Take, for example, Pestilence #1 from AfterShock Comics. It examines the zombie phenomenon from the perspective of an era of faith rather than one of modern-day science.

Animosity #1 REVIEW

Once again, the great sci-fi question gets asked and answered – That is, “What if?” We all feel quite an attachment to our pets and other animals! But what if that wasn’t necessarily the case coming from them? This series explores their relationships to us and to each other, and it’s quite gripping!

Second Sight #1 Review

When you mix murder and the supernatural, it makes a heinous act even worse, in my opinion. After all, when a living being removes the life of another for whatever reason, it’s bad enough. But when an extra-natural element gets involved, it makes it even creepier! This book explores what it would be like to be able to observe a murder as if you were doing it yourself! I know I’d have a tough time with that, so imagine what the lead character of this comic feels!

Strayer #1 Review

If you’ve read my recent review of Replica #1, you know that I am really high on AfterShock Comics. They continue to release excellent books, and the latest of these is called Strayer, and I really enjoyed its debut issue.
