    With last month’s ‘Infinity’ tie-in, we saw that ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ #9 brought the Guardians one step closer to Thanos yet still gave us no resolution as to what happened between Peter Quill and The Mad Titan while they were in the Cancerverse or how they both were able to return to our universe. (Personally I […]

    You can generally tell from the art style of a Dark Horse comic if Mike Mignola is involved in the writing even without reading the credits. Even if this wasn’t a continuation from the Lord Baltimore series that fans of Mignola are already familiar with, the style alone just screams that it’s something by him. […]

    I’m torn on Jonathan Maberry’s latest work. When dealing with horror he’s known for zombies over vampires, so when I read the announcement that he’d be taking on this form of the undead I was extremely curious as to how I’d take it. For the most part, I really loved the book though I do […]
