Things Are Meaning Less

posted December 21st, 2009 · posted by Lucas · marked as: Comic reviews · Reviews

By: Al Burian

Bottom line. This is great. It really connected with me on a personal level (which is why i enjoyed it so much!) but the meandering thoughts and subtle wit are good enough that anyone could pick it up and get something out of it. Trying to nail it to a genre, I guess it would [...]

Juvenilia

By: Sina Shamsavari

I’ve never come across any of Sina’s zines before but from the looks of it he’s been quite prevalent in the underground comics community. This particular publication harks back to the early days of Sina’s self publishing odyssey…

How to date a girl in ten days

posted August 6th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews · Reviews

By: Tom Humberstone

I picked this up on a whim at the August Alternative Press Fair having remembered reading Tom Humberstone’s Vented Spleen comics a few years ago.
The content, technically, I suppose is the standard domain of autobiographical comics. I was, to be honest, expecting a standard riff borrowed from Jeffrey Brown or James Kochalka so I was [...]

Decadence #7

posted July 21st, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews · Reviews

This is an interesting anthology that I only came across for the first time at the London Zine Symposium; or at least in the Chinese restaurant after the Zine Symposium!

Up a Blind Alley

posted July 20th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews · Reviews

By: Scott Smith

This is to date the best comic I’ve read in 2009, which is saying quite a lot considering I’ve read a lot of comics so far this year, and a lot of them have been brilliant.

No Brow issue 1

posted July 15th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews

By: Eds: Alex Spiro and Sam Arthur

I stumbled across this in Gosh comics, attracted by Stuart Kolakovic’s front cover, and the audacity of the oversized print size. I wasn’t disappointed!

World War 3 illustrated #39

posted July 14th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews

By: Eds. Peter Kuper

World War 3 Illustrated is the long running comix magazine from New York City which doesn’t hold back it’s punches when it comes to their thoughts about capitalism, war, and oppression. This issue is no exception; the change being that it’s an issue dedicated to ‘wordless worlds’.
It’s nearly two years since the last issue of [...]

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8

posted July 12th, 2009 · posted by Edd · marked as: Comic reviews

By: Joss Wheedon (producer)

I can’t hold it in any more. I have given this series 26 issues, so over £50, and it is still terrible. Almost everything that was interesting, exciting and fun about the seven TV series has been sucked dry from these comics.
