“You see this, you plague, you cloud, you curse, whatever you are? Deep down in whatever passes for your mind…do you finally start to understand this about us, about life? You may be relentless and ravenous — but so are we! We will never stop fighting — we will never give up!” – Morbius, The Living Vampire.
The thing I’ve noticed in comics is that the supernatural element of a universe is very underrated, compared to the mainstream superhero factor. This can be said for DC and Marvel, but steps are being taken to shed more light on them. It’s why I’m reviewing Marvel Zombies 4, written by Fred Van Lente and drawn by Kev Walker. It features The Midnight Sons, a team of supernatural heroes that consists of Morbius The Living Vampire, Werewolf By Night, Daimon Hellstrom and Jennifer Kale.

“That’s the life, man. Always going to be problems. There’s always going to be a new club trying to rise up, trying to take us down. Trying to be top dog. But we’re family…we stick together.”
Sons Of Anarchy is a show that left behind a hell of a legacy, and I’m continuing to explore it by reviewing the comic collections. Sons Of Anarchy: Volume 3, written by Ed Brisson and drawn by Damian Couceiro, involves a new MC called The Slaughter riding into Tuscon to take over the meth trade. SAMTAZ and SAMCRO comes up against them, threatening to start a war that Jax has to resolve no matter the cost.

When I get people asking me to review their work it makes me feel what I’m doing is having a positive effect. With that in mind, I’ll be reviewing my first indie comic, sent to me by River Rock Comics, called Ladies Of Market Street. The story involves a woman named Veronica Baldwin who is searching for her missing friend An. She’ll stop at nothing to get her back and here is my honest review of the comic.

“You. I’ll be you. The you you’re supposed to be. If you had killed Joker years ago, beyond what happened to me…you know what hell you would have saved this world. But no. His murder is a long list of sane acts you refuse to commit. You never cross that line. But I will.”
It was only a matter of time before I got around to reviewing my favourite graphic novel, and here it is with Batman: Under The Red Hood. Written by Judd Winick and drawn by Jeff Loeb, the story is centred on the conflict between Batman and Red Hood. The comic was adapted into a successful animated film, but there’s something more visceral about seeing it on the page.

When a TV show becomes popular, it’s not surprising that an entire mythology spins out of it into other mediums. This is the case with Sons of Anarchy being adapted into a comic series and I’m going to review the first volume, collected as a graphic novel. Volume 1 runs parallel to Season 5 and it’s written by Christopher Golden and drawn by Damian Couceiro.

“Criminals, by nature are a cowardly and superstitious lot. To instill fear into their hearts I became a bat. A monster in the night. And in doing so, have I become the very thing that all monsters become…alone?”
For my first graphic novel review I’m concentrating on Batman: Hush, written by Jeff Loeb and drawn by Jim Lee. It’s one of the most complex stories I’ve read in a long time, with Batman assaulted on all fronts by his greatest enemies. It begins with him rescuing a boy who has been kidnapped by Killer Croc. Catwoman makes off with the money and Batman chases her across the Gotham rooftops. The line to his grappling gun is cut and he falls into Crime Alley, fracturing his skull and leaving him to the mercy of thugs.

“I didn’t ask you to be Robin because I wanted someone perfect. I wanted someone who can do their best. Who can learn from their mistakes. Someone who makes me a better person just by being with them.” – Batman
Today, I’m reviewing my favourite comic with Red Hood And The Outlaws #6, written by Scott Lobdell. For those who haven’t been following the series, Jason Todd has been working to bring down Black Mask. In the last issue, Black Mask took control of Bizarro by linking their minds together with a virus. Artemis is on the scene and she’s battling with Bizzaro while Jason is fighting Black Mask.

For my first comic review of 2017, I’ll be looking at Nova 2, written by Jeff Loveness and Ramon Perez. The series is already off to a strong start, with Richard Rider returning from the dead and Sam Alexander learning how to be a superhero and deal with puberty. The issue picks up where the first left off, with Rich falling out of space and Sam tracking the Nova signal, as he believes his father has returned.
