Or – “Apparently, I’ll Only Be Reviewing The Odd Issues Of This Title…” But, really, aren’t they all a little odd? If you’re wondering what happened to my rundown of issue #2, well… thereupon hangs a tale: I decided after my lukewarm response to the first issue (compounded by the length of time between issues) not to recap the rest of Freshman II, a decision borne out by my overall feeling of “meh” when reading issue #2. So, why am I doing it now? Remember yesterday when I (jokingly) said I should recap something I didn’t like? I went through the stack of
You can read that headline in a number of different ways. If you are familiar with my life outside of comics, you’ve probably seen me write or comment about the Red One digital camera developed by Jim Jannard of Oakley glasses fame.

Two time gold record artist Claudio Sanchez, frontman for Coheed and Cambria, is bringing his writing skills to comics with the newly announced The Amory Wars. Sanchez had this to say: “THE AMORY WARS is the overall title of the mythology that surrounds Coheed and Cambria. Bringing this story to life on the printed page, exactly the way I’ve always envisioned it, is very exciting to me.” Claudio’s own Evil Ink Comics has teamed up with Image Comics and 12 Gauge Comics for a June debut. THE AMORY WARS chronicles the life and death of Coheed and Cambria, a young
On the weekend of May 5th, you have a couple of things keeping you busy; standing in line to watch Spider-Man III, and Free Comic Book Day.
