Long ago, before the rise of television shows like “Adventure Time” and “The Powerpuff Girls,” Cartoon Network showed only old cartoons. Many of these cartoons were produced by Hanna-Barbera in the 60s and 70s, when they were best known for “The Flintsones” and “The Jetsons.”

I cried while reading this story, and I have no clue why. Seriously, I can’t fully wrap my head around this story, and yet something about this made me actually cry. Divinity relies on subtle plays on your emotions in order to hit you when you least expect it, even if you don’t understand what’s going on.

What happens when you review a graphic novel that you last read when you were ten? You hope to God that you don’t weep over your undeveloped brain’s idea of a good story. Cosmic Adventures, as the hilarious editor’s notes call it, follows twelve-year-old Kara Zor-El after her rocket comes to Earth and crashes through Lex Luthor’s giant mech. Seriously…that’s how this thing starts.

Luminae

April 7, 2016 Artvoice 0






The first thing that appealed to me about Luminae was its vibrant cover art of a woman with seemingly armored wings holding a magically glowing bow that was aimed straight at me. Upon seeing the name of the author/illustrator, one of first things I thought was, “Who the hell is Bengal?”






Identity Crisis

April 7, 2016 Artvoice 0






The secret identity is easily one of the most important aspects of super hero action fiction.  While it stretches all the way back to the genre’s earliest beginnings in the pulp novels of characters like The Shadow and The Phantom, over the years the concept has started to feel a little anachronistic. 






Archie, Vol. 1

March 31, 2016 Artvoice 0






What do you think of when you add an unwitting, red-headed engine of destruction, a love triangle and Pop Tate’s? If you know your comics, then you know I’m talking about Archie Andrews, the lovable (yet hormonal) teen at Riverdale High.






Y: The Last Man – Deluxe Edition, Book one

March 31, 2016 Artvoice 0






In Brooklyn, a xNew York Police Department officer puts her firearm to her temple and says “All of the men are dead.”  This is the final panel of the first page of creators Brian K. Vaughan and Pie Guerra’s career-defining epic Y: The Last Man, a comic book that follows the last two creatures to carry the gender-defining Y chromosome on planet Earth. 






Daredevil by Frank Miller and Klaus Omnibus

March 24, 2016 Artvoice 0






It was an auspicious debut. The credits on page one of Daredevil #158 read, “From time to time a truly great new artist will explode upon the Marvel scene like a bombshell … Frank Miller is such an artist!” At age twenty-two, Frank Miller, largely unknown and uncredited, became the illustrator of one of the core characters in the Marvel Universe. Daredevil, created in 1964 by Stan Lee (with Bill Everett), was unique, a handicapped superhero.






S.H.I.E.L.D. by Steranko: The Complete Collection

March 17, 2016 Artvoice 0






Jim Steranko, superstar guest at the 2015 Buffalo Comicon, told the story of being offered a job by four different comic book companies in a single day. He took Marvel’s offer when Stan Lee gave him his choice of any Marvel character. “I told him I’ll take the guy with the eye patch,” he said.






Deadpool & Cable: Ultimate Collection, Book 1

March 17, 2016 Artvoice 0






It comes along every so often, that perfect buddy-action book that fits together like peanut butter and jelly. Deadpool & Cable is not that book. But it’s still a fun romp through the minds and motivations of Wade Wilson (Deadpool, the Merc with the Mouth) and Nathan  Summers (Cable, the Merc with the … umm, Metal Parts).






Wonder Woman at Super Hero High

March 10, 2016 Artvoice 0






I usually make it a rule to stay as far away from comic-based novels as possible; they’re one of the few types of books I never touch. To me, they’ve never given comic books justice, as they tend to butcher the characters.






Harley Quinn and Power Girl

March 10, 2016 Artvoice 0






Two fan-favorite D.C. characters, Harley Quinn and Power Girl, team up in what has to be the most underrated adventures ever written. I mean, how can you go without reading about what really happened “in the panel gutter between panels three and four of page twenty of Harley Quinn #12?”






Deadshot: Bulletproof

March 7, 2016 Artvoice 0






It’s a thin line between villainy and heroism, andDeadshot: Bulletproof walks that razor’s edge with a blend of sharp art, an edgy plot and dark wit. When is a villain actually a hero?






Invincible, Vol. 1: Family Matters

March 7, 2016 Artvoice 0






Chances are, you’ve experienced Robert Kirkman’s work (The Walking Dead, Ultimate X-Men, Marvel Zombies). But when Kirkman wasn’t making one of the most badass zombie apocalypses so far, he was writing about a quirky superhero teenager.
