One of Descender’s strongest themes has always been the notion of robots having souls — sometimes souls more pure and more sensitive than the flesh and blood humans that surround them. Our central robot character,… [more]

phonogramcover1On Phonogram & “Hating So Correctly”

Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Phonogram is very much a celebration of pop music, a comic filled with characters who love it deeply and at times overwhelmingly. A blurb from Art Brut vocalist Eddie Argos… [more]

ManifestDestiny19_review 1 coverManifest Destiny #19: Teamwork

BlackRoad02-review coverBlack Road #2: A Little Kindness

It should come as no surprise that Black Road has the narrative structure of the “journey”. (The word “road” is right there in the title, after all.) While we were introduced to the characters and… [more]

southernbastards14 coverSouthern Bastards #14: “Homecoming” Ends

As we reach the end of the “Homecoming” story arc in Southern Bastards, it becomes fairly clear what this particular storyline has always been about. Not football, or even race, necessarily, but the rather the… [more]

FadeOutVol1_Review coverA Tour of the 2016 Eisner Nominees, Part 7 – The Fade Out

BlackRoad01-review coverBlack Road #1: The Viking Comic You’ve Been Waiting For

Vikings have a special place in the European imagination, to put it mildly. A crazy blend of the wild west with the notion of the Fantasy Hero archetype set to a Heavy Metal soundtrack, the… [more]

thefix01_Review coverThe Fix Is Wonderful, Outrageous Fun

When I was in Grade 12, our laid back physics and astronomy teacher once asked our class, “What do you want to do when you leave here?” One bravely honest soul replied, “I don’t want… [more]

goddamned03_Review coverThe Goddamned #3: The Mark of Cain

Jason Aaron’s The Goddamned is best described as a cross between the Bible and Mad Max, with all the brutality and wit that implies. But somehow it goes so far into the depths of inhumanity… [more]

We’ve spent so much time getting to know the characters and their personal challenges over the past 10 issues of Descender that it’s good to be reminded in the new issue that the freaking galaxy… [more]

Tom and Shawn get all combative in a very angry Smorgasbord, as they discuss the new Suicide Squad trailer, Image series ending too early, Marvel superhero (and price) inflation, and a complete rundown of the… [more]

SouthernBastards13_review coverSouthern Bastards #13: Game Time

Ah, American football. It isn’t the world’s most competitive sport (have you seen the World Cup lately?), nor is it necessarily its most violent (I’m looking at you, Australian rules rugby), but there’s something about… [more]

Goddamned02_Review coverThe Goddamned #2: Sin and Redemption

descender08_Review coverDescender #8: Andy’s Story

In Descender #8 we finally meet the series’ Han Solo character. There’s even a Chewie equivalent (a giant slug with six eyes but he’s still charming). One could cry foul and say that Jeff Lemire… [more]

invisiblerepublic08_Review coverInvisible Republic #8: The Maia Difference

Both Arthur McBride and his cousin Maia Reveron eventually become revolutionary leaders: this is not really much of a spoiler for the continuing saga of Invisible Republic. But it’s important to note the differences between… [more]

invisiblerepublic08_Review coverMy Pick for the Best Comic of 2015: Invisible Republic

“Beware the best-of list”, Shakespeare once wrote. Or he should have. There are deep problems with basing one’s opinion of the literature worth reading on one critic’s list of the “best” of the year, most… [more]
