Comic Review: Steven Universe: Too Cool for School

Despite being a children’s cartoon, Steven Universe has amassed a hugely loyal following of all ages. The show has a reputation for cleverly tackling contemporary modern day issues in a colourful and energetic package. Although there have been previous Steven Universe comic books from BOOM! Studios,  Too Cool for School is a new original graphic novel. Scripted by Jeremy Sorese, with the story by Ian Jones-Quartey, the book is...

Comic Review: Odyssey Vol. 1

Odyssey is a war-themed comic written by Dave Elliot and illustrated by Garrie Gastonny and Toby Cypress. The story takes famous historical events and incorporates original super heroes into the mix. The protagonist may be a super hero but he’s also a government worker carrying out gritty military work. The first thing that I thought about Odyssey was that it wasn’t the type of comic I usually pick up. I’ve read the likes of Civil...

Comic Review: The Weirding Willows Vol. 1

The Weirding Willows is a new comic released by Titan Comics, written by Dave Elliot with art by Barnaby Bagenda and Sami Basri. This story is impressively ambitious, it’s based upon the adventures of Alice in Wonderland, but more importantly, it focuses on the areas which were left out of the original. It also ties in all your favourite childhood fairy tales too, like Snow White to name just one. It’s always fun to have a look at...

Comic Review: Sovereign #1

Sovereign is a new ongoing comic from Image Comics, written by Chris Roberson (iZombie) and art by Paul Maybury (POPGUN). Sovereign is an action packed fantasy comic, but it contains three radically different environments. It’s broken down into three ‘chapters,’ which I found quite jarring, and I still cannot figure out how they are related to each other even after finishing it. We begin in a medieval fantasy setting with...
