Hello all, I know it’s been a hot minute since I last posted. I apologize. I’ll try to be more on it. And truth be told it’s not because I haven’t been reading or reviewing comics, it’s because my platform for doing so has changed. While it was fun posting my own reviews on here, I saw a post on r/comics for comic reviewers and hopped at it. I’m now a contributor to Sequential Planet: comic, movie, and video game review/news website. It’s really a nice space, so go check it out.
So, what have I written lately? I’ve reviewed the new Image comic line, Dead Rabbit issues #1 and #2, as well as Sparrowhawk #2, from BOOM! Studios. here are links to all three.
Dead Rabbit is a new ongoing series published by Image Comics. It is dark in tone, message, and content, and thus recommended for mature readers. Written by Gerry Duggan and illustrated by John McCrea Dead Rabbit tells the story of a (fictional) notorious robber.
Dead Rabbit tells the story of Martin and Megan Dobbs. Martin was once known by a different name. A name that made headlines and was spoken out loud with a mixture of both admiration and fear: Dead Rabbit. But that was a long time ago and Martin retired from the game. Just before Dead Rabbit vanished, however, it’s believed he ripped off millions from a notorious gangster. They’ve waited years for him to reappear.
Sparrowhawk is a 5 issue mini-series by BOOM! Studios. Sparrowhawk tells the story of Artemisia. A young woman of mixed race (African and English) who lives in England in 1851. In #1 she is pressed to marry to save her families fortune. To her surprise, however, she is yanked through a mirror into the land of Faerie. Sparrowhawk #2 continues the story of what happens while she is in Faerie.
In addition to my weekly comic review for SP, I have some other exciting projects in the works, and I’ll make sure to tell you all about them as they come to fruition. I’ll make sure to post links to my comic reviews each week as well.
