This is a wonderful fresh take on a familiar character

In 2011, the blind vigilante got a bold relaunch by industry legend Mark Waid paired with a talented stable of award-winning artists (including previous collaborator, Marcos Martin, the father-and-son team of Paolo and Joe Rivera, and future fan favorite, Chris Samnee). The three-year run deviated from some of the previous series themes and sought to take the character in a brighter direction. The resulting work produced the most critically acclaimed Marvel books in the modern era by receiving twenty-one (21) award nominations (a feat only rivaled by Fraction and Aja’s 2012-2015 Hawkeye run which adopted a similar feel and approach.

Hugely Influential


Unlike all the other brilliant runs (Miller, Smith, Bendis, Brubaker, and even Zadarsky), Waid’s Daredevil steps into the light and leaves an even more endearing take on Matt Murdock.

Fans forget prior to Brian K. Vaughn’s Saga, Waid’s Daredevil was the industry darling that redefined the recipe for success. The art was so pure, clean, and consistent. 10/10

Fantastic Four: Full Circle Review

The Fantastic Four find themselves with no choice but to journey into the Negative Zone, an alien universe composed entirely of anti-matter, risking not just their own lives but the fate of the cosmos! Fantastic Four: Full Circle is the first longform work written and illustrated by acclaimed artist Alex Ross, who revisits a classic Stan Lee–Jack Kirby story from the 1960s and introduces the storyline for a new generation of readers. With bold, vivid colors and his trademark visual storytelling, Ross takes Marvel’s first team of super heroes to places only he can illustrate. The book also features a special poster jacket, with the front flap unfolding to reveal an all-new fully painted origin story of the Fantastic Four.

Did You Hear What Eddie Gein Done? is an in-depth exploration of the Gein family and what led to the creation of the necrophile who haunted the dreams of 1950s America and inspired such films as Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence of the Lambs. Painstakingly researched and illustrated, Schechter and Powell’s true crime graphic novel takes the Gein story out of the realms of exploitation and gives the reader a fact-based dramatization of these tragic, psychotic and heartbreaking events. Because, in this case, the truth needs no embellishment to be horrifying.
