A pretty spectacular Dark Knight Returns style post-apocalyptic Ninja Turtles tale. Miraculously, the original creators have reunited after many years to finally make good on their plan for a "final turtles story." Gritty like the original black and white series, with some really excellent short chapters drawn in that classic style. Totally enjoyable and a must read for fans. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

Maybe the finest indie superhero comic of all time, auteur Michel Fiffe has created a striking homage to the original Suicide Squad, with a breakneck pace, dynamic and eclectic art, and a shocking emotional depth. Pick it up and flip through it, if you're into superhero comics you must give this a look. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

Published: AK Press - February 7th, 2023

The latest entry in the very exciting anti-capitalist Black Dawn imprint. Up-and-coming trans author S.J. Klapecki briings us an excellent novella about a non-binary space station worker who, on the eve of being laid off in favor of automation, decides to join a union and help them try to start a revolution. Surprisingly hopeful for a grimey dystopian story, a meditation on the purpose of political actions and the importance of making sure that those who control our lives never forget that we despise them. Klapecki is a really exciting new author and I can't wait to see what they do next. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

Published: Iron Circus Comics - June 20th, 2023

The newest release from genius small press publisher Iron Circus is a ridiculously beautiful wordless comic told page by page in single frames, every page a breathtaking masterpiece of stunning black and white mark-making. What starts as a pleasant fantasy adventure quickly turns unsettling as a very cute small wizard experiences a journey full of disturbing body horror inflicted by various nightmarish creatures. Witch Hat Atelier meets Jeff Smith meets Dark Souls, a true confluence of the things I love the most. ~ Reviewed by Reilly Hadden

A surreal, and mildly disturbing 112 page novel, narrated by Asa, who moves to the countryside with her husband for his new job. It's an unusually hot summer, and Asa passes the time meandering through the woods, cleaning the house, and walking through town. Incrementally, she becomes troubled by mysterious encounters with unidentifiable creatures, strangers in the 7-eleven and her in-laws. Reality becomes disorganized, as sentences repeat, characters appear, then vanish, and Asa slips further into what feels like insanity. This short novel doesn't leave you with any answers- it's a beautiful, slow burning fever dream. ~ Reviewed by Allegra Krieger
