PRODIGY. #5

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #4 As I’ve noted in my last two reviews, the biggest flaw I find in this series that Edison is written as so much smarter than everyone else that it removes all of the suspense from the stories. Mark Millar corrects…

PRODIGY. #4

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #3 This issue is even more action-heavy than the last. We see Edison fighting groups of armed men, jumping out of windows, jumping out of a plan, dismantling a missile in mid-air and just generally being a badass. We also get…

PRODIGY. #3

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: PRODIGY. #2 Mark Millar starts off this issue right in the middle of a gunfight on top of a moving train, and the action just picks up from there barely giving the reading time to breath. This is a globe-trotting adventure as…

Written by John Layman Drawn by Afu Chan Published by Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment PREVIOUSLY: Outer Darkness #1 Captain Riggs hates cats. That’s one of the first things we learn about him this issue, although we’re not given any specific reason why. But I also hate cats for no particular reason, so it just makes me…

PRODIGY. #1

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics I haven’t picked up a Mark Millar comic since I bought the first issue of his series EMPRESS back in 2016, but I was definitely intrigued when I first heard about this new series of his. Edison Crane is the World’s Smartest Man,…

Outer Darkness #1

Written by John Layman Drawn by Afu Chan Published by Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment I’ve been waiting for this eries every since I first say John Layman post about it on his Facebook page months ago. It’s a mix of sci-fi, horror, and “weird shit,” which is right up my alley! Imagine Star Trek but with…

The Walking Dead: Here’s Negan!

Written by Robert Kirkman Drawn by Charlie Adlard Published by Image Comics I was never a regular reader of Robert Kirkman’s long-running (173 issues, so far) comic-book series The Walking Dead. Nor did I start watching the TV series until about halfway through season 5. But when I did I quickly became hooked. Still I…

New MIGHTY MAN One-Shot

Written by Erik Larsen Drawn and colored by Nikos Koutsis Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: MIGHTY MAN #1 This was a nice surprise to see in this week’s list of new releases on Comixology this morning.

HUCK #6

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #5 I have to say that this has been one of Mark Millar’s most enjoyable recent projects. With some inventive use of Anna’s powers, Huck busts the two of them out of the Siberian prison, and then mother and son team…

Huck #5

Written by Mark Millar Drawn by Rafael Albuquerque Published by Image Comics PREVIOUSLY: HUCK #4 Okay, first of all, though I will try to avoid too much spoiling of this issue, do not ready any further unless you’ve read the first four issues first.

MPH #5

Writer: Mark Millar Artist: Duncan Fegredo Publisher: Image Comics Previously: MPH #4 After reviewing HUCK #2, which made reference to a character alluded to in this series, I realize that even though I’d published reviews of the first 4 issue of MPH, I never did get around to reviewing this final 5th issues. Truthfully, it’s…

First, in the gritty urban streets of New Jersey he travels to crack house to find…
