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)

Bookshelf Reviews: The Skullkickers Kick Some Skulls, and Take Some Opas!!!

Described by Zub as his “love letter to Conan the Barbarian and Dungeons & Dragons, and swords and sorcery in general,” Skullkickers tracks the antics of the two aforementioned sellswords as they bash and bungle their way through the multiverse, gathering up a host of interesting friends and foes along the way. They fight fiendish necromancers, sail the seven seas, wrestle gorillas with horns, and confront a would-be world-dominating Cthulhu-like entity, with identity issues. (17/13)

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)
