All Star Western #1
Written by Justin Gray/Jimmy Palmiotti
Art by Moritat
This book is an amalgamation, or to use the language of the streets a ‘mash-up’, of most of my favorite aspects of  literature and cinema: It skillfully combines subtle and overt allusions, a compelling who-done-it, and a well constructed story that makes sense.
It appears that some mysterious figure, reminiscent of Jack …

So, a friend of mine hit me up on FB to ask me questions about the DCnU…and as I was explaining it to him, it occurred to me: isn’t the POINT of the New DC Universe so that people wouldn’t have to EXPLAIN the new DC Universe? Come on, at least not AS IT’S STARTING.

See what I mean? It’s a …

Title: Holy Terror
Author: Frank Miller
Publisher: Legendary Comics
Reviewed by Johnny Destructo
Arrogant. Arrogant god-damn bastard. Sloppy, arrogant work by an arrogant bastard. Frank Miller. Always building himself up bigger, taller, like some mad gaggle of robots. Always climbing. Now falling. Enjoys repetition and small sentences. Originally a proposed Batman book, this is now…something else. Instead of Batman and Catwoman and Gotham City: …

Reviewed by Grim_Noir
While DC and Marvel have been having their flashy, splashy “event” comics over the last few years, Dynamite Entertainment (with the help of writers Kevin Smith, Phil Hester, Ande Parks; and a slew of artists) has been quietly building a multi-generational Green Hornet dynasty.

Action, suspense, fishnets. What more do you want?
Well, a couple things, actually. Like quality writing, solid art, and strong intelligent female characters. All of which are bases soundly covered in this first issue. Like with many of the positive reviews I’ve given to the DCnU …
