Beautiful Darkness Is More Than a Title – Review/Analysis

Beautiful Darkness is the kind of comics we need more of. It not only has a sustained thematic subtext, but uses the images to convey information not present in the text. Too often we default to a double dip of narrative from text and image. As readers we're taught to treat the illustrations as secondary. This album, using the full power of the medium, elucidates a story that couldn't exist in another form. Highly recommended.

Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers Rewatch, Episode 1: Phoenix – Some One Asked For This

Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers starts out roughly. If there is folly in its ambition, there is virtue also. The show's dedication to world-building sets it above the competition. Effort is made to establish a plausible universe with recurring races, planets, technology and conflicts. It rises above its premise of space western to become more of a space opera in the Star Trek vein, and it does it all in twenty-two minutes. Well, it tries.
