Prison Pit

Prison Pit: The Complete Collection By Johnny Ryan [Fantagraphics] Welcome to the wasteland, fuck face. It’s a barren scape conveniently filled with grievous characters that pop into foul play. Vignettes of a knee pad crusader tearing ass through the pit and pissing on the remains. The violence is uncanny, like visions of a road raged… Continue reading Prison Pit

There’s no need to worry about the DC Universe getting too dark for the kids. The studio goes full Super Friends with Wonder Woman 1984. You can’t blame director Patty Jenkins, though. The target audience for WW84 was barely born when 2007’s Spider-Man 3 ended with the main characters having a group therapy session. The folks at Marvel moved away… Continue reading Wonder Woman 1984

Bloodshot

At first, it might seem clever for Bloodshot to feature Guy Pearce flipping his role from Memento in this tale of an innocent assassin getting his memory reprogrammed for nefarious purposes. Then – if you’ve been watching too many movies – you’ll remember that plenty of trashy films have swiped Memento’s plot over the past two decades. Bloodshot is worthy of Pearce’s… Continue reading Bloodshot

The Kitchen

As a big fan of DC Comic’s Vertigo imprint and especially the short eight-part comic book series The Kitchen, I was extremely excited to see a live-action theatrical release of the story. While movie makes sense as a standalone entity (it’s not great, but it’s not that bad), if you had read the original comics… Continue reading The Kitchen
