I previously tended to shy away from horror comics but a friend introduced me to this series and I absolutely loved it. A brief summation is “a mash-up of Buffy meets Stranger Things”. The art, story, characters, and feel are all superb. Volume 3 wraps up the storyline at Archer’s Peak. I think the story ended well. It was pretty intense with some shocks and turns. We get a good bit of world-building for the upcoming House of Slaughter. I think the series has maintained his momentum. 


2022 was the year for Something is Killing the Children

The series maintained its intensity and continued to be well received by both critics and fans. Volume 3 received a 4.3 on Goodreads, 4.9 on Amazon, and a 9.0 Critic Rating on Comic Book Round Up. The series has been nominated for ten major industry awards (winning seven). In 2020 the series was nominated for the Eisner, Harvey, and Ringo awards. The following year, James Tynion IV would win both the Eisner and Ringo awards for “Best Writer” for his body of work in 2021. In 2022, the series won the Eisner for “Best Continuing Series”, the Ringo for “Best Series”, the Ringo for “Best Single Issue”, and Tynion won both the Eisner and Ringo again for “Best Writer”.

Tynion is on Fire

Having won the Eisner for “Best Writer” two years in a row, it seems like Tynion can do no wrong.  Even though I didn’t particularly care for his Batman run, I really enjoyed his other works (The Department of Truth, The Nice House on the Lake, and Wynd). Check out my reviews for his other books.

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!

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.

Award Winner


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.
