Vicious Review

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve had an undeniable soft spot for superhero stories that go beyond the standard good versus evil premise. Granted, we need the Flashes, Spidermen, and Supermen of the world to constantly give us hope for a brighter future and show that our personal tragedies don’t have to define us, …

Short Story – Unchosen

“You are not the chosen one.” Master Pienza’s words rang throughout the amphitheatre, bounding off of the concrete pillars and pricking my downturned ears like daggers.

I don’t often read straight up fantasy stories but when I do this is exactly how I like them. Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor is a perfect blend of urban and high fantasy with humour, magic, monsters, and a hip European setting that eventually morphs into a tragic love story that spans …

Tomorrow They Will Come

  I wrap my arms around myself in an attempt to keep warm. Even here, in the hottest of deserts, it gets chilly after the sun makes its departure. I look down at Sam, contentedly sleeping with his head in my lap and stroke his fine, white hair. I always thought that it would darken …

Plutona Review

What happens when you mix five kids and one dead superhero? A wonderfully twisted tale about friendship, loyalty, and coming of age, turns out. Plutona is the brainchild of Sweet Tooth alums, Jeff Lemire and Emi Lenox, both of whom seem to have struck comic book gold yet again with this one. Fans of the creators’ …
