Bookshelf Review: Colleen Doran Brings Neil Gaiman’s Troll Bridge to Glorious Life!

Just as Snow, Glass, Apples is far afield of Disney’s happily sanitized Snow White (or even the Grimm brothers’ original, for that matter), Troll Bridge is not your kindergartner’s Three Billy Goats Gruff. The tale, told in retrospect from the now-adult Jack, is beautiful prose: eloquent, evocative and yet somehow minimal at once. And, true to Gaiman form, fondly nostalgic of a youth lived in the wilds of fair(ish) Britain in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s. (13/13)

Pullbox Reviews: Lily’s Take – Lacey and Lily “A Twist to the Classic Superhero Tale”

Well it’s officially Summer, so it’s time to kick back, relax, and read some comics. I have a long list of titles I am planning on checking out and shows I need to binge in the coming months, but first up on this list is Lacey and Lily created by Andrew Cieslinski (more of his […]

Death of Nancy Drew: Part Two Delivers More Noir Gold!

If you’d have told me that I’d be championing the virtue of a Nancy Drew comic book—for adult (and late teen) readers—I’d have likely diagnosed you with something. But here we are. It’s an excellent read, folks—without ever losing the original flavor and familiarity of the source characters and material, which is perhaps the team’s greatest accomplishment. (13/13)

Pullbox Review: Something’s STILL Killing the Children, and Erica Slaughter’s Gonna Do Something About It!

If you’ve not read the first six issues of Something is Killing the Children, well, first you need to correct that—and thankfully, Boom! Is making that easy on you; they’re also releasing a gorgeous collected trade of the full first arc, just in time for issue 7 to drop. Second, even if you choose not to, this is a great jumping-on point. The vibe remains equal parts Buffy the Vampire Slayer and It, and Tynion’s storytelling skills remain top notch. He deftly introduces new characters and story arcs without bogging things down with too much dialogue, and leaves much of the tale hinted at and suggested, as good horror should be. And he trusts his artists. (12/13)
