iZombie 1.04 “Liv and Let Clive” Review

Originally published at Psycho Drive-In on May 1, 2015. iZombie Episode 4: “Liv and Let Clive” takes a step away from following our leading lady Liv’s story closely and instead looks at the relationships she holds with other characters.

iZombie 1.02 “Brother, Can You Spare a Brain?” Review

Originally published at Psycho Drive-In on April 18, 2015. Episode two of iZombie is just as satisfying as the first. iZombie is still working to establish characters and relationships, but it does so with such earnestness that it’s enjoyable to watch. The characters are so unique and witty in their own ways that it’s hard to … More iZombie 1.02 “Brother, Can You Spare a Brain?” Review

Review: ‘Rat Queens’ Vol. 1 Presents the Women that Everyone Deserves to See in Comics

I’m particularly proud of the review I wrote for Rat Queens Volume 1. The series was a recommendation and it couldn’t have been more spot-on for me. Read why I loved it (and you should too).   UPDATE: the writer tweeted me after I tweeted out my article to thank me for my review. *Fangirl squeal*

Deadpool #38 Review

Deadpool #38 is a continuation of the AXIS event and a continued disappointment. The witty, merc-with-a-mouth Deadpool that everyone knows and loves is nowhere to be found; instead he is replaced with an uninteresting, unremarkable, Zen-loving version. Even worse: the story line of the genetically-altered versions of the X-Men is dead in the water.
