Razorjack │ Review

razorjack

In 'Razorjack' John Higgins has created a truly imaginative world for his stories. His artwork is solid, his dialogue is fresh and engaging and the coloring is vibrant. However, the connections between the characters and the story selections are vague and lacking vital information to help us appreciate the stories as much as we could.

Insane Jane – Vol. 1 │ Review

Insane-Jane

The net effect of 'Insane Jane' is a rather sharp poke in the eye to the more formulaic superhero exploits and origin stories. Overall, there was quite a lot of ingenuity and talent here, but it fell a bit flat for me.
