Friday Review: Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1

I've been meaning to start this series for some time now, so it's about time I got here. The first volume is an in depth look at the hip hop scene from the mid 70s to 1981, the founding years of hip hop. This is something that I know next to nothing about. So, not… Continue reading Friday Review: Hip Hop Family Tree Vol. 1

Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Is this, you ask yourself, another book I've never read, but definitely should? Why, yes, yes it is. Daytripper is another quality title delivered by Vertigo Comics, written by Fabio Moon and drawn by Gabriel Ba. I think it's important to note that the authors are real life twins. It seems to me this helps their work… Continue reading Friday Book Review: Daytripper

Friday Review: Harvey Kurtzman’s Jungle Book

Not to be confused with The Jungle Book, or a comic book adaptation of that work. No, this is something quite different, indeed. I've been meaning to read this book for some time, because I always hear about it while reading about comics. I'm kind of ashamed it took me this long. Kurtzman is one of the… Continue reading Friday Review: Harvey Kurtzman’s Jungle Book

Friday Review: Trillium

There are a couple of truths that I hold to be self evident: wrasslin' is fun, Faygo redpop is delish, and Jeff Lemire is good. Really good. While he does do writing and drawing separately for some stories, I enjoy his work in which he does both the best. This includes Essex County, Underwater Welder,… Continue reading Friday Review: Trillium

Friday Review: Lucky in Love

Ah look, I'm reviewing another book you probably never heard of. Don't you try to change me. Here's the deal, I'd never heard of this book until last week, but a friend of mine showed it to me, and flipping through, I thought "this is the kind of book to review on Friday!" Actually, my friend… Continue reading Friday Review: Lucky in Love

Friday Review: Incidents in the Night

Incidents in the Night is a rather bizarre comic by French cartoonist David B. Don't take that as a bad thing though, because I like my comics strange. It's a sort of hard book to talk about because I think any conversation benefits from the other party having read the story in this particular case. However,… Continue reading Friday Review: Incidents in the Night

Friday Review: Macanudo

You'll be forgiven if you've never heard of this comic. Macanudo is actually a daily comic strip from Argentina by Liniers (I know I must seem like the biggest hipster right now) that I just happened to stumble upon while working the other day. So, technically, this is the second volume of collected strips. However,… Continue reading Friday Review: Macanudo

Friday Review: 5,000 km Per Second

For this week's book review, I went on a quest to find something different. And, thanks to the people at Fantagraphics (doing the Lords' work tm), I found 5,000 km Per Second. This comic was written and drawn by Manuele Fior, and was originally published in Italy. So I have to thank Jamie Richards for the translation.… Continue reading Friday Review: 5,000 km Per Second

Friday Review: My Friend Dahmer

I have to say, it took me a surprisingly long time to get to this book. Given that I live in Ohio, I've run into a lot of people who've read My Friend Dahmer, but I myself never picked it up until recently. I'll start the review portion by saying this book is a haunting experience. I… Continue reading Friday Review: My Friend Dahmer

Friday Review: Shirtless Bear Fighter

This week I take a look at the ridiculously named Shirtless Bear Fighter from Image Comics. You pretty much get what you expect from this one, so let's jump in. Shirtless Bear Fighter is a five issue mini series from Image. So, it was a rather quick read. It was written by Jody LeHeup and Sebastian Girner, with… Continue reading Friday Review: Shirtless Bear Fighter
