The Darth Vader series was on a roll but Darth Vader #8 misses a couple steps, thus knocking it off it’s perfect score. However, it’s still a good one worth checking out. Click here to read our full review.

Comic Review: ‘Star Wars #7’

August 5, 2015 at 12:04 am | Posted in Comic Books, Marvel, Reviews, Star Wars | Leave a comment

Star Wars #7 shakes things up by going back in time to showcase a little adventure Obi-Wan had during his exile on Tatooine. Sadly, this may be a story only the most diehard of Obi-Wan fans will enjoy as it’s not very important to the overall scheme of things. Still, the artwork is nice to look at.

Comic Review: ‘Lady Mechanika 0 & 1″

Steampunk can sometimes be a trite setting for watered down storytelling and mediocre writers looking to attach themselves to a hot genre. There’s no doubt there’s some great steampunk cosplay out there, but I’ve been hard pressed to find some good steampunk storytelling. Lo and behold Lady Mechanika. This comic finally proved to me that steampunk is a genre ripe for storytelling and that there are actually some writers out there than can do it justice. Click here to read our full review.
