REVIEW: Charley’s War – A Boy Soldier in the Great War

By Trevor Van As on August 28, 2014

A review for Charley’s War – a Boy Soldier in the Great War, which has changed my opinion on war comics. This classic British strip follows an underage soldier in World War I and is full of action and heart racing heroics, but at the same time is heavily critical of both sides of the conflict.

By Trevor Van As on August 4, 2014

Through horror, humour, tragic romance and action Nightworld follows the sad demon Plenilunio who makes a risky bargain in order to reconnect with lost love.

Through big action, character moments, humour and even politics, Brian Michael Bendis and an array of wonderful artists give the series a solid start. Working as a great introduction to the team and its members, this release is a great place to start for those interested in this galactic team.

BATMAN WEEK REVIEW: Batman: The Killing Joke

By Trevor Van As on July 25, 2014

In 1988 Alan Moore and Brian Bolland created a story that focused on The Joker, going into his origins and exploring his relationship with Batman. With Moore’s unnerving script, in addition to Bolland’s fantastic art, Batman: The Killing Joke is not an easy read. But it is rewarding.
