Angel City #5

Angel City #5 is packed with action, gearing up for the conclusion next issue. Dolores’ attempt to solve her friend’s murder takes a back seat to staying alive, as crooked cops and gangsters sent by studio bosses are both after her for not shutting up and leaving well enough alone. (No matter the era, someone always wants the strong women to sit down and be quiet.) As the issue opens, she’s been framed for someone else’s murder, sending her fleeing. […]

Ares & Aphrodite

Ares & Aphrodite is the graphic novel equivalent of a beach read, a romance set in Hollywood with plenty of spicy tricks and sparkly back-and-forth dialogue. If this was a movie — and sometimes it reads as though it wants to be — it’d be a classic romantic comedy. Will Ares is a successful divorce attorney, which means a lot of people dislike him. His most recent client is Evans Beatty (a terrific name choice to evoke an aging Hollywood […]

Space Battle Lunchtime #1

Space Battle Lunchtime is a new eight-issue miniseries from Oni that’s kind of a flagship, since it was the first project they acquired from their new open submissions process. Written and drawn by Natalie Riess, it’s the story of an Earth girl swept up into an intergalactic cooking competition. That’s a concept that will interest many readers, particularly those who love the wacky juxtaposition of everyday hipster life — Peony breaks the rules by baking her own recipe treats for […]

Princess Ugg #7-8

As the second storyline of Ted Naifeh’s Princess Ugg concludes in issue #8, this may be the last for a while — but it’s a high point to pause on. First, issue #7, which sets up a number of interesting plot twists. In previous issues, Ulga and her fellow princesses have been kidnapped. Her bravery has won over many of the others, who finally see her in a context where her “savagery” has a purpose and a value. The prissy […]

Possessions Volume 4: The Final Tantrum

It’s been three years since the previous book (author Ray Fawkes was putting out two graphic novels for adults as well as working on several titles for DC in the meantime), but we finally get to find out what the pit demon Gurgazon will do now that she’s broken free of zoo-like captivity. Don’t be misled by the title, though — the series doesn’t end here. Gurgazon first appeared in Possessions: Unclean Getaway, where she became part of a collection […]
