Right off the bat, Shanghai Red #1 is not a pirate story, despite what the first few panels might have you believe. It’s something better.

I started Gideon Falls #4 worried that it would be all exposition, but about a third of the way in, it breaks your mind and puts you on edge until the final page.

Issue #3 of Steve Orlando and Garry Brown’s Crude starts to find its way again after a second issue that I felt pulled us too far away from the central story. It set up the ins and outs of a world that dramatically didn’t need to be set up yet.

It’s no secret that I love Matt Kindt’s work. You can look through my reviews of his comics over the last three years. There’s very rarely a negatively tinged review, and if there is, it’s full of trust that he knows what he’s doing, even if I don’t see it yet…and I’m usually correct, and he’s usually amazing.

I have absolutely no idea what’s going on in Black Hammer right now, but it looks like we’re about to find out! The beginning of this story arc had the newly transformed Lucy Weber, now Black Hammer, exclaim that she knew what was going on, and then she was teleported away. Infuriating to say the least! The last two issues have seen our heroes, who have been trapped on a Twilight Zone-style farmhouse, move forward with renewed hope. After only seeing them in states of malaise, it’s been a welcome change. Meanwhile, Lucy has tumbled through some strange realities. If our heroes in their youth represent the Golden Age of comics, and our heroes now represent the indie world of comics, then these alternate realms have represented the '90s!

Not gonna lie, compadres – this might be the best Westworld episode of all time.  One day after airing, and it has a 9.4 on IMDb.  Avengers: Infinity War (the highest rated film in the franchise) has an 8.8.  The Shape of Water, which won the Academy Award for Best Picture last year, has a 7.4.  The Handmaid’s Tale, which won the Emmy for Best Prime-time Drama series, averages 8.6.  Not that scores mean anything much, I just bring this up to show how much this episode is already becoming a fan and industry favorite.  And count me in on that.  My reaction when the end credits ran was a combination of shock and joy and for the first time in my life (or so I think), I stood up off the couch and just stood there looking at the television, knowing I wanted to do something and not knowing what.  Yeah – I want to marry this episode and have a million of its babies.  It’s that good.  But I don’t want to oversell it.

Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
