Review

Locked up with a home invader, June brings an axe to a gunfight and struggles to survives in this impressive sophomore issue.

In my last review (Basketful of Heads #1I mentioned that comic books, compared to other visual mediums, are at a disadvantage when it comes to inducing feelings of horror and dread in their readers, and while this is true, Joe Hill, LOEMACS, Dave Stewart, and Deron Bennett, showcase that said disadvantages can be overcome with, what feels like, relative ease. Basketful of Heads (2019-) #2 is paced well packed tight with dramatic tension, using ‘silence’ and stillness to inspire some serious anxiety in readers. 

Horror fans should rejoice, as it is clear that we readers are in a new and exciting age of high-quality serialized horror. Basketful of Heads remains a must-read series for fans of the genre.

Bottom Line

Packed tight with spine-tingling tension, Basketful of Heads #2 raises the stakes while keeping readers rocking on the edges of their seats.

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
