Jam Comics and Facebook

In our last meeting, jam comics were the topic of the day. Jam comics involve one person drawing one panel in several minutes before passing it on to a different person who continues the comic. Combining everyone’s different styles and ideas results in the most unique of short comics. To see the rest of the […]

Pain before the battle with Jiraiya

10 Most Moving Battles in Naruto (Part 2)

I noticed that my part 1 was a huge spoiler to those who haven’t read the manga before, so I decide to continue “spoiling” (eh…?) 5. Jiraiya vs. Pain Pain actually refers to the name of a group that has seven different ninjas. To be more precise, the group is actually six corpses of dead […]

10 Most Moving Battles in Naruto (Part 1)

Ok, perhaps it is wrong to use the word “moving” to describe battles, but as I proceed, you’ll get what I mean. The manga I’m reviewing on is Naruto. I believe many comic or manga lovers have at least heard of its name. Sadly, it ended in 2014, and left many flaws in its plot […]

At first, I was hesitant to give this a […]

Review: NBC’s Hellblazer is not on fire…

…so go read the comics instead. Someone leaked the pilot episode a few weeks back. I was unimpressed, but decided to reserve judgment. However, last week we received the news that John Constantine’s status as a queer man is “irrelevant” to his character and he is, as such, now straight. I have since lost much faith […]

Review: Pretty Deadly

Review: Pretty Deadly

Pretty Deadly has attracted a lot of attention since its launch last week, from being torn up in front of customers at LA shop Comics Ink[i] to being called both “the worst comic ever”[ii] and “effortlessly elegant”[iii] it seems that no one knows what to do with the violent, genre-bending, pseudo-western.
