Poison Ivy Proves that She’s Truly a Force to be Reckoned with in “Poison Ivy #1”

Written by Angela Rairden Poison Ivy finally has her own title again and I couldn’t be happier about it! Written by G. Willow Wilson (the same writer who created Marvel’s Kamala Khan!), this is a deadlier version of Pamela Isley than we’ve seen in a long time. After obtaining god-like powers, only to have those powers stripped from her, Ivy’s feeling less like herself than ever before. Add to that the fact that she’s still processing her complicated break-up from Harley Quinn, and we have a version of Ivy that just wants to watch the world burn. Except, it isn’t...

“Grim” Offers a Unique Twist on a Familiar Theme

Written by Angela Rairden Boom Studios’ Grim is exactly my type of comic. It’s horror with a splash of humor, a dash of sexiness, and an unexpected plot twist right in the first issue. Written and created by Stephanie Phillips, who’s currently doing a bang-up job writing Harley Quinn over at DC, with truly gorgeous art by co-creator Flaviano (Power Man and Iron Fist, I Am Groot) Grim is the tale of grim reaper Jessica Harrow. Tasked with ushering the newly dead across the River Styx (if that’s what you want to call it), Jessica’s boredom and disillusionment about her...

Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi Miniseries Is Off to a Promising Start

Written by Angela Rairden Disney+’s new Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries begins with a four-minute recap segment that quickly portrays some of the pertinent events in the three Star Wars prequel movies that were released in the early 2000’s. For someone like me, who maybe hasn’t watched those movies all too recently, it was a welcome sequence that reminded audiences of how close Obi-Wan and Anakin Skywalker once were, a tie that seems likely to drive this entire series. Because Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor, as it should be) vowed to hide out on Tatooine and watch over Luke from a distance, I anticipated...

“Made in Korea” is a Different Type of A.I. Story

Written by Angela Rairden When I read that Pornsak Pichetshote, writer of the phenomenal comic “The Good Asian”, was recommending a trade paperback titled “Made in Korea”, written by Jeremy Holt with art by George Schall, I knew that I had to pick it up. “The Good Asian” is such a wildly good title that I knew that any book praised by its writer had to be equally as good, and I was not disappointed. Set in the near future, “Made in Korea” begins in the software engineering division of a manufacturing company in Seoul. There, an engineer named Chul...

"Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse" Makes a Pretty, If Confusing, Debut

Written by Angela Rairden Spider-Gwen is one of my favorite Spider-people, mostly because I’ve always loved Gwen Stacy. Actually, if I’m being completely honest, I’m a big fan of all of Peter Parker’s love interests – I guess he has good taste or something. However, there’s something about the role reversal of the uber smart Gwen becoming Spider-Gwen instead of Peter that really appeals to me. Not to mention, her spider suit is really slick-looking. Therefore, when I picked up Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1, I didn’t expect to find it as disappointing as I did. The official Marvel description for this...
