Are Relaunches & Reboots Good or Bad for the Comic Industry?

On a recent episode of my podcast, Zone 4, we discussed comic book relaunches and reboots as the main topic. As fate would have it, I lost internet and was unable to participate in said discussion. Far be it from me, though, to not have my voice heard on the subject, hence this article. Before I get into the meat of the topic, let me define these terms as I understand them, or rather as I intend them to be for the purposes of this piece: Relaunch Starting a comic…

Batman #43 Review: Does the New Batman Finally Bloom?

By: Nicole D’Andria This is the most promising issue yet featuring the new Batman. It gives me hope that the series will bloom into something wonderful. But there are still a couple thorns here and there. Warning, after this sentence there will be some SPOILERS for the previous couple of issues, including the identity of the current Batman, and minor spoilers for this issue if you haven’t seen the preview for it. This is the third issue featuring Commissioner Gordon, now Batman. He is coming to Bruce Wayne for his…

Jennifer Vaiano Karp Interview: My So-Called Secret Identity Character Designer

Jennifer Vaiano Karp Interview: Nicole D’Andria Interviewee: Jennifer Vaiano Karp Last week I interviewed the writer of My So-Called Secret Identity (MSCSI), Will Brooker. This week, I’m speaking with the artist who did the character designs for the series, Jennifer Vaiano Karp. Me: How would you describe your art style? Jennifer Vaiano: I don’t think I have clear style of art. I love sketches, and the look of raw lines. I always want to make my work look more streamlined and “finished” but I can’t help but stop at a…

New 52 Cancellations in March 2015—Is this the end of the New 52?

By: Nicole D’Andria DC has been making a lot of waves since their event, Convergence, was announced. This event will bring DC comic book characters from the 90s, New 52 and pre-New 52 together (if you’re interested in learning more about Convergence, check out Jay’s coverage). Many fans, like myself, thought this event may mark a return to the pre-New 52 Universe and possibly end the New 52. While I would be okay with the New 52 continuing (but the pre-New 52 taking prominence) it looks like the New 52…

Batman: The Dark Knight #28 Review: Father Knows Best

By: Nicole D’Andria Its been awhile since I took a look at the lackluster Batman: The Dark Knight. There are so many more Batman-related series than there need to be. The only reason this used to stand out was because there would be cameos of Justice League characters like Superman, Wonder Woman and Flash. I gave up reviewing it as of issue 6. Since then, the stories have mostly been bland and forgettable. However, this issue introduces a new villain that I have to talk about. There have been several…
