The Review Page

This is where I keep all the comics and anime reviews I've written. Much of it now is just limited to reviews of trade paperbacks, or material that's been published in archival formats over the years, not just because of the rise in prices, but also because of the drop in quality of many comics since the turn of the century.

Oh yes, and be forewarned, there most certainly are what are commonly known as "spoilers" in the reviews here. So if you haven't read what's being reviewed here yet, be prepared.
