Chew #37

(Image Comics)


Chew is one of those marmite books, you either love it or hate it. Personally, I think it’s one of the most original books out there and have used it to get people into comics in the first place! That being said, the book is now so balls-deep into the story that there really is no good jumping on point, and this issue is no exception.

Rocket Girl #1

(Image Comics)


While drawn absolutely beautifully, Rocket Girl’s first outing struggles to get in gear but starts to shape up towards the end and looks like it could be a good wee read in the long run.

Dayoung Johannson is a 15 year old teen cop from the future who has travelled back in time to 1986 to prevent a corrupt corporation from altering time to benefit their standing on the business ladder in the future…..and oh yeah… she flies around on a rocket pack!

Three #1

(Image Comics)


Three tells the story of three slaves who take on 300 Spartan oppressors.  I really didn’t enjoy this one to be honest which is a shame because I thought it sounded awesome.

The writing doesn’t seem to move along smoothly and the dialogue between characters seems more suited to bad daytime soap operas than comic books.

The Walking Dead #115

(Image Comics)


The time is finally upon us! The Walking Dead’s eagerly anticipated ‘All Out War’ 12-issue event kicks off today, and I have to say, its off to a terrific start. While the preceding few issues have been very much defined by their action and ‘heat of the moment’ drama, this is a far more thoughtful, restrained, character-driven issue that helps sell the enormity of the battle ahead, and the emotional – not to mention physical – toll it’s likely to take on the participants.
