Interview: Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook Talk Supernatural in "Harrow County"

Interview: Cullen Bunn and Tyler Crook Talk Supernatural in “Harrow County”

Jason Sacks for Comics Bulletin: So thanks to the team from Harrow County for joining me. I really enjoyed the first issue. It’s got a lot of kind of interesting, mystical, witching elements to it.

Review: 'Second Avenue Caper' is an Important Story of a Lost Era

Review: ‘Second Avenue Caper’ is an Important Story of a Lost Era

We all know that some of the most interesting stories are stranger than fiction. The story that Joyce Brabner and Mark Zingarelli tell in Second Avenue Caperis one such story. It tells the improbable true-story of how a marijuana-dealing doctor in led to the importation of drugs to fight AIDS in the early 1980s. It’s a tale of nobility and sacrifice in the face of a terrible tragedy, of how a…

Review: 'Aama: the Invisible Throng' is Visionary Science Fiction

Review: ‘Aama: the Invisible Throng’ is Visionary Science Fiction

Aama: the Invisible Throng is a mindfuck. It’s a journey both literally and metaphorically. It’s astonishing science fiction that takes readers to a world that’s unimaginable and it’s an expedition into the depths of a human soul. It’s an extraordinarily bizarre, completely astonishing graphic novel that continually goes into its own direction and forces the empathetic consumer to come along.

Renee French’s latest release Baby Bjornstrand has scored a four star review at the Comics Bulletin.

“There’s a sense of menace here, but there’s also a sense of peace and joy, kids having fun, perhaps despite the obstacles that they face.
