While I mightily enjoy reading comic books, I'm really quite fond of the act of collecting them too. I'm also a bargain hunter and most times refuse to pay full price for a comic book or graphic novel.

New Reviews Coming Soon!

Posted on January 13, 2014 at 2:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Why is it, when I've stopped updating this column consistently I get the most email?

I will have new reviews soon though, I was dealing with some serious personal health problems and a big move, which hit me big time in the wallet, plus taking away most of my spare time.

Thanks for emailing and sending me those pdf review copies everyone, I'll do my best to praise or bash your hard work very soon!

Umm... Wow

Bikini Cowboy

By Fresherluke


This is the best graphic novel I've read in a few years, hands down. Not since "The Nao of Brown" by Glyn Dillon, have I been so impressed by a comic book. This was released in May of this year, it can actually be read for free in webcomic form...

There's a good debate going on over at the ever-awesome The Comics Beat blog about Avatar Press' use of "Torture" variants on their CROSSED comic series.
