Update for 6/10/20

New review for an older comic: Number #2 by Box Brown!

Update for 6/8/20

New review for Glimpses of Life #6 by Brian Canini, who is maybe the most reviewed person on this website? Somebody take a tally…

Update for 6/4/20

New review for Please Destroy the Internet by Michael Sweater. I mean, enough of the internet, am I right?

Update for 6/2/20

New review today for Quarantine Comics by Glenn Wilkinson, which are not actually about the quarantine. Spoiler alert!

Update for 5/29/20

New review for Tinderella by M.S. Harkness, and if you haven’t already opened up another tab to buy it for that title alone, I don’t know what’s wrong with you. Happy weekend everybody!

Update for 5/27/20

New review today for The Island of Dr. Miro by Grant Thomas. First person who sends me a corona-themed comic gets a prize! Because I’m just assuming that artists are using this extra time to work on comics. What else would they be doing for the end of the world?

Update for 5/25/20

Ach, another gap in reviews, sorry. Work is still busy, although that should be calming down next week. Meaning that if I can keep myself plague-free, I should be putting a lot more reviews up in the near future. New review today for Hot or Not: 20th Century Male Artists by Jessica Campbell!

Update for 5/8/20

New review today for The Audra Show #4 by Audra Stang, and if anybody is using all this quarantine time to make comics, send them my way and I’ll talk about them. Currently no waiting! Unless I find a stash of comics I missed and have to quickly review them to make up for lost time. Happy weekend!

Update for 5/6/20

New review today for Exes by Dave Kiersh and Cole Johnson, also from 2013. Have you fallen into a time warp where it’s actually 2013 again? I don’t know, check out your window. Do you see people with masks walking around? If so, it’s still 2020. If not, then maybe! Or you might just live in a neighborhood full of assholes. Hard to say!

Update for 5/4/20

Sorry about that, it’s not exactly a great time to go dark on the website for a few weeks. I’m fine, just overly busy from the recently concluded Ohio election, so things should be back to sporadically normal around here. New review today for Samson by Kelly Froh!

Update for 4/9/20

New review today for Dodo Comics #6 by Grant Thomas. Hey, are there any web developers out there who suddenly have a lot of free time? Because I’d like to upgrade the website, and as one of the few people in the country who still has a job I could actually pay for it. Let me know at if you’re interested!

Update for 4/7/20

Sorry about the lack of updates, but I’m still “essential personnel” because of the upcoming election. Check out the archives if you’re bored at home, I’ve been rambling here for almost two decades now. New review today for Forever and Everything #5 by Kyle Bravo!

Update for 3/26/20

New review for Square Head! by Jep. You know, it just occurred to me that I usually set these reviews to autopost at the start of each week, and if I got the ‘Rona I could pass away and still have reviews posting. Ew, creepy. Hey, if that happens, somebody get my mini comics to the Billy Ireland museum in Columbus. They’re bound to be able to find some use for the rarer books…

Update for 3/24/20

What a difference a week off makes, huh? You might think that you’d be seeing more reviews from me, what with the country more or less on pandemic lockdown. Sadly, Board of Elections employees are considered “essential staff” (which sounds a whole lot nicer than “expendable”), so my work schedule is still normal. If that changes, I just got a box of comics from Spit and a Half and I’d be happy to ramble on about all of the comics. New review today for Sremmeh Fo Dog by Dustin Holland!

Update for 3/12/20

New review for King Cat #79 by John Porcellino, the 30th anniversary issue! I already said I’d most likely be out next week for the election, but I’ll mention here too that you should buy what you can from John’s Spit and a Half comics distro as soon as you can, as the man is talking about retiring. Get them comics while you can!

Update for 3/10/20

New review today for Dr. Carl Willendorf: Psychoanalyst of Creatures, Monsters and Other Beasts by Grant Thomas. One more review this week, then it’s most likely radio silence until after the election. Vote!

Update for 2/27/20

New review today for Kids With Guns #2 by Alex Nall! Also I’m hoping to keep the reviews steady through the primary on March 17th (vote!), but if I vanish from time to time, that’s the reason. If that happens just dig through the archives a bit, you’re bound to find some amazing comic that you missed when I reviewed it the first time around…

Update for 2/25/20

Sorry about the gap in reviews, long time readers will know that I tend to get awfully busy around election season, what with my job in elections and all. Also go vote! If you’re not motivated now I honestly don’t know what would do it. New review today for The Audra Show #3 by Audra Stang!

Update for 2/13/20

New review today for Open Molar by Lille Carre, a mini kus book that almost slipped through the cracks. You can’t escape me, mini kus!

Update for 2/11/20

New review today for Alienation by Ines Estrada, and that should do it for the graphic novel reviews for now. Unless I find another “best of” list full of amazing books I hadn’t read, so I guess I’m making no promises…
