Does This Look Like a God to You?

I’m glad to see a woman writing Wonder Woman, given that this is the time where the character should be getting more attention. In my opinion, G. Willow Wilson (Ms. Marvel) is taking some time to find her feet, but the current storyline, pitting Veronica Cale against the Amazon Princess, shows promise. Cale, created by Greg Rucka to be Wonder Woman’s “Lex Luthor”, is a high-powered executive whose daughter was kidnapped by gods in order to blackmail her. She’s a […]

Unnatural Art Focuses on Breasts

I previously panned Unnatural by Mirka Andolfo for letting its tendency for salacious images get in the way of the story. I flipped through the most recent issue, #7, and discovered little had changed. The pig-girl is now the long-lost fated savior, or something, and there’s a rebel group telling her what to do (because she has little direction on her own). However, her powers take her over during a raid and she rips a guy’s arm off. This scares […]

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #44 Preview: Dastardly and Muttley!

Out today is the latest installment of one of the comics I most enjoy reading these days: Scooby-Doo Team-Up. Issue #44 puts the characters in contact with a Hanna-Barbera favorite: fiendish Dick Dastardly and his oddly human-like snickering dog Muttley. They starred in a 1969 cartoon, Dastardly and Muttley in Their Flying Machines, which spun out of Wacky Races. You probably know it best from the theme song, “Stop the Pigeon“. DC has provided the following preview pages from the […]

Doctor Who: Thirteenth Doctor Comic Will Have 13 Covers (Duh)

Titan Comics is excited by the new Doctor Who, played by Jodie Whittaker. They’re launching a new series, Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor, which will debut with a #1 on November 7. It’s written by Jody Houser and illustrated by Rachael Stott. No plot information is available — before the new Doctor’s show debuts, I would imagine the BBC would be cross with that — but we know that she’ll be accompanied by her TV companions: Graham (Bradley Walsh), Yasmin […]

Age of Bronze Reissued in Color

When it came out last decade, Eric Shanower’s Age of Bronze was a masterwork. Retelling the Trojan War humanized it and brought the history to life, and his gorgeously detailed art was a pleasure to read. On Wednesday, the first collection, A Thousand Ships, will be reissued in color, done by colorist John Dallaire, which should expose the story to a new audience. You can see some of this beautiful work in the selection of preview pages below.
