NEMESIS finally helped me crack the Millar Conundrum; that puzzling ability he has to polarize the comic book community into almost equal sized camps of blind-rage and gushing-adoration for his work. Millar is essentially the Michael Bay of comic writers. And I don’t mean that as an insult. He …

Olympus vol. 1, by Nathan Edmondson & Christian Ward, Image Comics

I chose Olympus because of my interest in Mythology. I heard good things about it, and knew the story was based around Castor and Pollux, and their “bounty-hunter” careers. I had no idea how Edmondson wrote or how Ward drew, so it was completely brand new …

The Anchor vol. 1, by Phil Hester & Brian Churilla, BOOM Studios

OK, I was really excited about this book. The marketing made it sound cool: “God’s Own Leg-Breaker!” I’m ready for pseudo-religious ass-kicking, mixed with some mythology. The promotional images were reminiscent of Mignola’s Hellboy! This was going to be a great read, with great visuals!
