Review time! with Ruins

“Our bones forever in stone, monuments of life” I’m pretty sure Ruins is the first Peter Kuper book I’ve ever read, even though he has a fine reputation around the comics literati and he’s been working for a long time.

Have a Happy– No, Wait– Have a Tolerable Sucksgiving

Because, traditionally, this holiday SUCKS. Why celebrate it then? Because it was created right here at CBR, by my old friends Jim MacQuarrie and Tim Morrison, and because I’m cranky today. For many reasons. Here’s one that somehow showed up on a T-shirt… New to Sucksgiving? Here is the skinny on the world’s most depressing […]

Review time! with The Dharma Punks

“I’m all tied up and my eyes are shut, and these chains I’ve made they’re too tough to cut” Dylan Horrocks, who writes the introduction to The Dharma Punks, Ant Sang’s 8-issue comic about a group of New Zealand punks wandering around Auckland on one night in 1994, explains that it was a big-time success […]

Review time! with High Crimes

“Soldiers of armies, storm empty fields in a traveler’s trance, on the way to the high frontier” I’m trying to catch up on my graphic novels reviews, as you can tell, and while High Crimes came out in June (I think), and therefore I should have reviewed it earlier in this run (the first review […]
