Review

In the blink of an eye is transported away from his reality and sent hurdling through darkness, where a voice begs him to resist, stay strong, and keep fighting.

I don’t normally refer to any of the included bonus material that are included in the last few pages of comic books, but the letter that is included in Spawn #306, should be read, as it speaks directly to the Tan and McFarlane’s script being intentionally disorienting. Typically, I don’t think that issue’s, especially the first chapters of new story arcs, should be confusing, but it works, here. Spawn #306 moves fast, hits hard, and leaves readers begging for more.

Philip Tan’s illustrations are gorgeous; each and every page is packed tight with energy and highly-detailed panels that engrosses readers in the story, allowing them to feel the flames and smell the burning flesh. 

I’m not sure where this Tan and McFarlane are leading this story, but I’m confident that wherever it arrives, I’ll want to be there, too. Who’s with me?

Bottom Line

Spawn #306 is an entertaining issue that drops readers headfirst into an exciting new story; gorgeous illustrations and a quick-moving, albeit disorienting, plot makes for an enticing read.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

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.
